you can play for free forever if your able to make 400mil isk every 3 months. You can buy game time cards for in game money 400mil for 90 days 170mil for 30 days, you need to make 5mil per day if your buying 90 day cards or 6mil per day if your buying 30 day cards

I do trading for isk, currently making like 20mil per day with 800mil in capital so lets say 20milx 30 days = 600mil per month 1.8 bil in 3 months that can buy 4x 90 day game time card so for 3 months of trading i can play for a year. I usually spend 30 min a day checking and modifying my trades then play my mission character. my trading is really sub par a true trader that checks their orders every few hours can make 40-60mil per day. The only problem with starting trading is you need capital. I ran npc trades that gave me 2-3 mil per hr in an industrial for like 10 days, while i was training for my industrial transport ship i ran noob missions and collected everything that dropped until i got like 10 mil. In like 2 weeks i had 100 mil then I used that capital to traded in jita first few days trading i went all out and checked my orders like every 15 minutes made like 4% an hour for like 5 hrs so in a day i made a bit over 20mil, when the weekend hit i was already up to 200mil and somehow within the last 3 weeks i made that into 800mil.

I do trading because you dont need to play that character to trade, just set up your buy orders and sell orders and play a second character. A proper mission character doing lvl 4 missions make on average 20mil per hour if you sell your lp rewards or 5-10mil if you dont, i think something like 40mil per hour if you salvage your wrecks too. adding this to my trading profit i make like 30-40mil per day even more if i'm not lazy.

i think 5mil per day is easily doable even for miners, the secret to mining for enough money to play for free is mine in .5 area with osprey and do can mining, eject your can, then after 20min you'll have enough to fill a full industrial ship cargo, should get you 1.5mil every 30 min, 3mil per hr if you mine kernite 2 hrs of mining per day should allow you to play for free.

Basically I play for free and have enough money to do anything I want in the game plus I can lose as many ships as i want in pvp it wouldn't put a dent to my cash flow.

my character has only been around for 1.5 months, I started with 14 day trial and after that ended paying once for 1 month that gave me 45 days where i made enough in game money to play for 3 months, and now i have enough for another 6 months. I'm making enough money for 2 accounts i might get another one to trade in a different region and to follow my mission runner salvaging, looting, and maybe repairing. another secret to trading, you get 3 characters in each account so you can trade in up to 3 regions at once or 2 regions and use one character as your main.

make sure to get daytrading 3, margin trading 3, broker relation 3, trade 4, retail 2 minimum, i think the starting trading character selections start with most of these except margin trading.

Awesome and very handy plan for people who don't want to spend actual money on the game.

eve is the best space game out there :). i being playing it for about 1 year 1/2. and since my skills gotten better, and my corp is out in 0.0 space, i don't pay for my game is free!!!!! all i do is make 180 mill which takes me about 4 days for about 4 hours each day kill those 1.5 mill bs and salvaging the wreck, which u get a lot of money for salvaging out there in 0.0, all i do is buy time card with the isk i made. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go to 0.0 if they don't have a corp out there, simply because ther isn't any station out there that u can dock, and since u can kill anyone anywhere at anytime that is not isn't blue ur pretty much ass out ;), and the collest part is that ther isn't any concord police out there woot.. and watch out for those bubbles..

The game's awesome, you don't need to be online all the time to still "level up" if you will. I guess it can be described as the "magic card game of the MMORPGs," it's been around for years and years, and the cool kids play it LOL
btw, a fleet of stealth bombers is overpowered

looked at it and read up on some of its major history like the titan being taken down by goonswarm which cool to read up on. all that infiltration and stuff going on in the corporation was awsome. seems like a very fun game and very different from other mmos as it has lots of depth in the economics of the world.

howdy,

Been playing for about 2-3 years and i love the game....

I'm currently an alliance leader of a fierce PVP group in low-sec.

as for my corp, we make the spaceships that everyone in the game flys and sells them on the market.... We even build those massive Capital ships (My Favorite)

One thing about eve-online is that it is hard to find trust worthy people that are loyal and stick around..... this game can be so unforgiving but the only thing that makes it worth while is making long lasting friends.

If you are interested on joining a player corp look me up.... i go by the same name in game....

shoot me a eve-mail and refer to this post.... i usually only do direct invites... but hay

Alliance Website is www.eve-usf.com

i play (since late 2007 right before trinity dropped), i enjoy it

i do pve to make ISk and pvp to blow ISK away
i spend a lot of time in providence, in Libertas Fidelitas (my corp's part of the alliance) space mostly

i got through periods of interest in eve so i play for a couple months then drop off for a month or so, rinse and repeat. i always keep my skills training though. in my opinion the game has only gotten better since i started, and will get better.
