After a fairly lengthy hiatus playing UT4 pre-alpha, I logged back into EVE again some 36 hours ago. All but 2 accounts had expired and one of those was about to expire in a few more hours. I burned a few PLEX re-activating several accounts and reactivated all but one of the rest the next day (today).
So I'm back for now though uncertain for how long.
It's been almost 3 full months since the last time I logged on so nearly all of my buy and sell orders had expired. I was surprised to note my net worth hadn't dropped very much at all. In fact it was up slightly until I burned those PLEX reactivating accounts.
So with plenty of ISK burning holes in my pockets I decided to do things a little differently this time.
First I put up buy and sell orders for PLEX in most empire regions. Then I went to work on the new part, the market raider with hundreds of billions to spend buying up low priced stock and resetting prices higher.
Of course prices won't stay that high for long but I sold 3 at that price which represents a profit of 75 million each on 3 of the ones I paid 45 million for. That's 225 million in total profit on just 3 sales, enough to more than cover the 13 I paid more than 40 million for with another 100 million or so profit left over.
Then I sold another 20 or so for 60-65 million each. At least 20 million profit on each of those for about 400 million more profit. So another 500 million plus to cover "overpayment" on the ones I paid between 35 and 40 million for. That covers at least another 100 I "overpaid" for, the price is still over 46 million right now and I'll still be making decent profits even if the price drops well under 40 mil.
It'll be interesting to see what happens next. A lot depends on what kind of stockpiles others have been holding onto. Maybe the price will go back up again in a day so, or maybe it'll drop low enough I'll do another buyout to put even more pressure on the market.
I'm mostly doing this to shake things up and see what happens. So far it's looking like I'll be making ISK and maybe a lot of ISK.
Oh yeah... It didn't take the Malma bot long at all to respond to the 3 new buy orders I placed in Genesis yesterday. The only 3 buy orders I have up in Genesis period right now. For 3 months I didn't even log in once, yet shortly after do log in and post those 3 orders he's right back to cutting me again. Within minutes just like always. I've had enough of him and his shit. He's been getting away with it for years, next post I'm going to disclose his name so everyone knows exactly who the lowlife cheating bastard is.
