I finally sat down and learned the basics of GitHub. I’ve uploaded the Wallet Manager code to this project so anyone that has enhancements or bug fixes can collaborate as a community.
If you don’t know what this project is, see these previous posts:
Having seen TEST’s and Pandemic Legion’s Finance Report, I was inspired to pull up and analyse my own performance numbers to see how I compare to the income streams of larger alliances.
A few MySQL queries and a Pivot Table later, I have some performance numbers for 2010-2012. Turns out I have an average of 2.33% the income of Pandemic Legion.
September through October of 2011 was a period where I lost faith in CCP’s ability to deliver new and inspiring content. That lack of interest was directly shown in these performance numbers as I stopped logging into the game.
Following the trend of EVE-fail, I am going to continue releasing monthly financial reports.
November saw a resurgence of trading as the anticipation of Crucible brought me back into the game. With all the PI changes, there were ample opportunities to turn a profit. The change over to Player Owned Offices meant a tax barrier and therefore an increase to PI goods. Now that PI goods are involved in many production chains (POS’es, POS modules, T2 components), there has been an increase across the board.
New to the net value charts is the inclusion of Corp assets as I have taken the CEO role and put a lot of ISK into our ventures.
Here is a sneak-peak at my top trading groups. As you can see Implants far outweigh the other items. When a person goes to replace their implants, you are not only selling 1 implant, but 4 or maybe 5, as people will replace the entire set.
I have not tested the market with Skill Hardwiring implants but now that they are visible on killmails, I may have to parse what ones are popular. Expansions always bring new trading opportunities, you just have to look for them. I might write something to scrape killmails and give me a report on what are the top 10 by volume per month.
There was a large growth in November compared to October due to a renewed effort into trading. I expect that December will be a good month as the introduction of the new Tier 3 Battlecruisers opens up many avenues. They are going to be popular and will die quickly.
This month saw two major shifts for me. With the fall of Imperial 0rder, I lost a lot of access to nullsec stations. I had spent a lot of time in Catch playing with AAA and now that time has drawn to a close.
I’ve since withdrawn to highsec and have started up a manufacturing line with a corpmate. My hopes are that some rebalancing and sovereignty changes will hit with the Winter expansion and my desire to return to null will come back.
Also, a lot of real life events kept me from playing. I finished up with my last Triathlon of the season, had a fun open water swim competition at the end of September, and moved into a new apartment complete with no Internet access for a few days! Real life > Eve.
Shift a lot of liquid ISK into BPOs:
- 2x Archon
- 2x Thanatos
- 1x Chimera
- 1x Charon (in research)
- 1x Obelisk
- 1x Providence (in research)
Sift of ISK into raw materials for production to start production lines.
Locked up 5 B in Jump Freighter Production.
Purchased a fancy mission Tengu.
I wasn’t on Ever much to update prices so only 4 Carriers sold. I am looking to ramp up production in October since I will also be adding a researched Chimera BPO to the factory line.
Over the past few months, I’ve seen a steady groth in net worth with a slowdown in August and September due to real life commitments combined with stagnation in game.
