In my earlier wrap up of my PI challenge, I noted that I was considering running PI on all three characters on one account. I did this. Mainly because I though Mabrick’s claims might have a silver lining if I ran it that way. There’s more posts over there, you should read them. He has some interesting views on Eve.
Back to the follow up. As a reminder, here were the results from the first month. The key point is that I netted about 134m in profits.
Across three characters on the same account, with 4s in Command Center Upgrades and Planetary Consolidation, I ended up netting this:
Not quite triple the total, but I had to run 2 factory planets. And 334m isk ain’t bad. A few thoughts on this.
- I didn’t even have CCU 4 and IC 4 trained at the outset. That took about two weeks or so. So that’s lost income.
- I was also much less serious this time around, and missed more than a few updates by margins of hours or days. Also failed to move some ECUs when I knew I should have. That’s also money lost.
- Due to resource imbalances, sometimes I stockpiled, and sometimes I just hauled and sold. Not sure how that impacted things.
In regards to Mabrick’s original and revised estimates of 500m or 300m/month respectively, I think both are possible if you are willing to run all the characters on an account. With level 4 skills, 300m is more than doable, as evidenced. 500m might be, if you train 5s, pick planets with a bit of luck and wisdom, and pick the right things to produce.
So here it is, with the caveat that you need to use all 3 characters, in no uncertain terms:
