All over the Internet i see guys complaining that EVE is too complex, or too boring or "spreadsheet simulator". I can agree if the game bores you but i can't agree that it's too complex, you need to watch some videos, do the fucking tutorial and use the thing that is called "brain" (i said this earlier too). With almost no help (of course, i asked here and there but most time i was by myself), i made 1bil in my first 3 weeks, solo, and i had a hell lot of fun.
At the moment i don't think there is any game like EVE, in which you can do whatever the fuck you want. If you want to make ISK and don't have time, you can: spend like 1h a day (like croda) and play the markets or go explore solo. If you have time, you can do incursions, ratting. If you want a bit more technical, you do industry, and if you have a lot of time but you need to afk, you mine. That's it, you can make a lot of money in a lot of ways, you need to use your fucking brain and (like markeedragon said) if you can succeed in EVE you can succeed in life.
I will write some tutorials on how you can make money, just need to think at them. More to come!
