Largest EVE Confirmed Kill Loses Player over $6000
One unfortunate Eve Online player has reportedly lost over $6,000 worth of virtual products when his ship — and its contents — were destroyed.
The player was trying to transport a huge cache of valuable blueprints worth over 213,000,000,000 ISK when his meager little ship was decimated. That much ISK could currently buy roughly 367 30-day game time codes at approximately 580 million ISK apiece, for a combined total of over 30 years of game time. In order to buy that much game time with real money, one would have to pay about $6,422.50 US.
The value of this kill may be even higher than the reported figure, because blueprint copies aren’t factored in and several of them are actually worth billions of ISK. This may not only be the largest confirmed kill in EVE — it could be the most expensive character death in any MMO, ever.
