Comments: EVE Online Competition: Rags to Riches

Looking forward to winning that GTC!

My original character was Amarr, so I'm considering creating one. Maybe Khanid, we'll see.

As for how I plan to make my money, it'll be by going after as many NPC pirates as I can muster.

Looking to the competition.

Isn't this a bit skewed towards people who can play 18 hours a day? I might still enter tough (will post details later).

Hi Mhaelt;

I figure anyone who can play 18 hours a day will spend that time on their main, not a trial account. However, there's the most-entertaining-account prize as well, which doesn't require huge amounts of time in-game.

You might want to consider using the Eve API ( and go with the full API access to validate the wallet info for the 2 weeks. Since they're trial accounts there's nothing to be lost by sharing the info and they can always be reset to revoke access afterwards. Less chance of nasty people cheating that way...

As Drew, says, the post will be crucial in determining the winner.

Mine will be "in character" to spice things up.

I'd like to compete please!

I'm going to start out mining, taking some escort missions until I get enough money for a salvage ray and a ship strong enough to go after pirates.

I enjoyed my last character, and had her pumped up on the social skills which I found very helpful.

I'd like to participate. I am actually only just out of a trial account, so I volunteer to be the official underdog of the contest.

I'll (like everyone else) start out mining but I plan to make a more of a trade centered character, so that should be interesting.

Addendum to previous note: there may be some piracy involved in there, somewhere.

Watch out, new eden. :)

Great idea for a fun contest, good going. I'd love to compete, but I'm probably going to be out of town for most of the contest so it really doesn't work for me.

Best of luck to everyone.

So.. what are the prizes? you forgot to mention what the prize will be for winning.

I'keelyu Dedd: Um. Para 5, above:

Each prize will be 1 30-day Game Time Code for EVE Online

Or is that not what you meant?
