What do you do when your source for isk suddenly dries up? How long do you go before adapting?
With Repercussus’ move to Goonswarm, we had the inevitable adjustment period while we all move our ships to exactly the right place, find new homes for everything we do on a regular basis, and generally find ourselves a nice groove. This happens at both the corp and individual levels.
It hasn't been hard to find PvP content. RP is stepping up even further to keep the content flowing for the corp, and GSF is great at providing a range of options even during a relatively dull time (wars winding down, holidays, etc.). Logistics take a little longer as our logi pilots learn the new routes and danger spots, but it’s still flowing pretty well.
But, for me, my isk has generally come from cosmic signature ratting. Lots of scanning practice (which has a clear PvP application) and high-yield time actually spent ratting. But we’ve gone from an alliance of 3,000 to an alliance of 12,000, and the time zone focus has shifted to our TZ from the EUTZ, meaning there are a lot of competitors for those sigs. So many, in fact, that it’s not viable any more.
I’m sitting on a good pile of isk, but dropping 5 billion on three months’ game time for two accounts throws into sharp relief the fact that I’m going to need to create some new revenue streams within the next year or face a significant cut in my net worth.
