So holidays are past, and time to get back into space!
Mostly been sitting in station when logged in during the holidays, been trying out some "Market PvP"
I was made aware of the massive fluctuations on the market on an item named "Technetium" by Helicity, and found a thread on EvE-forums where Akita-T talked about the "new bottleneck" in T2 production etc etc..
Was lots of talk about industrial stuff that I did not get, but I found this THREADMONSTER over at Scrapheap Challenge, and it really got me turned on to playing the market and investing in such things..
Apparently this is the deal:
CCP changed many T2 blueprints, and now many many more require items made by Technetium.. such as Nanotransistors and the like..
And, "Tech-moons" are apparently rare, or up north in space plagued by wars.
The ones that has crunched the math-numbers are figuring that Technetium will have to be above 100k in price, even up as far as 150k!
Prices have gone up and down since dominion... most of the market savvy folk bought at 10-20k, and have already sold and re-bought a few times if I am to believe forum posts.
They did not anticipate the prices being this wild I guess, but it got to be famous in a way.. so before it will stabilize over 100k, I estimate it will fluctuate wildly going up and down between 30-80k.
Just undocked from Jita as I am writing this and it was at 35k, so take the opportunity and buy some!
-Just dont use money you may need soon, as it might be february/march until the prices are real good.
In other news... soon there will be... HULKAGEDDON ! ! ! (2) ;)
Helicity is organizing this years slaughter of miners with even more prizes and events then last.
Already there have been cries of agony, and the event has not even started!
Poor Heli has even been compared to Hitler and Stalin by some upset individuals that cannot tell the difference between the game and real life, and believes Heli is some kind of evil twisted person.
*groans about humanity*
Anyway.. this will be great fun, read up more of it HERE.
