As most of you know, the World cup started last week. Those of you who have no idea what it is and are blissfully unaware because their country doesn't really participate in the whole soccer thing: Good for you!
I live in a country that was able to qualify itself, which is a good thing because we've been waiting on this for for a few years. Or so I've been told since I don't really follow it myself. But it's easy to get sucked into the whole atmosphere concerning the World Cup.
Which is why I've been actually following it quite closely the last couple of days. Saw a few awesome matches and a few that were disappointing.
What does this have to do with EvE you ask? Well, due to a friend of mine betting on soccer, I figured I could try this too, but not with my hard earned euros, but with ISK.
The fun thing about EvE is the fact that almost everything is permitted, even using your ISK to bet on out of game sports. Some people even make a nice amount of ISK on this, so I figured, why not try this out and see what happens.
I haven't been using my ISK for anything other than the whole Prospect building "fiasco" so it's time to make a few dumb arrangments and use it on something silly like gambling.
I've put 60m ISK on a few matches and nearly tripled that, so I'm kind of giddy with excitement that I actually made the correct bets. But we all know that I'll lose it all in a while. But that's no big deal, 60m isk is easily made in an hour or less.
Next to the betting I've been browsing the forum and talking to friends to see what I want to do in the game. I made an alt that I'm currently training into stealth bombers only, since I like flying them. And I'm training my main in the use of interdictors.
I'm not sure yet where I want to go with him but hopefully I'll figure this out one of these days. Low sec is waiting for me and a friend is trying to get me to come into the wormhole.
Might just take him up on that, although I really, really need to practice my scanning if I do..
