they forget to take into account the time it takes to convert your LP into sold items. 100m/hour is just the theoretical maximum using funny math. I used to run level 4s in a faction fit Mach with 1800 dps, and i never truly broke 100m/hour, and i was completing level 4s in under 30 minutes, any level 4.
i made 3x as much isk doing low/null exploration in a proteus that cost 1/5th the price of that faction mach, which is sold, btw...
When i played i used a rattlesnake with salvager + tractor beam fully afk fit.
Took me usually 30min to complete a lvl 4 mission and on average i got 40-50m isk per hour
When i went serious i got into my raven + alt in a destroyer salvaging stuff.
with that i would earn around 80m isk per hour.
though with the afk fit i would have the alt mine as well making me another 12m isk per hour.
I don't play the game anymore i just pay to skill up and go to the yearly fanfest.

Yeah, now that CCP has released the summer skill changes I'm training for a carrier on my main account since I no longer have to worry about BS 5 in a race I have no plans on using. I have 2 alt accounts that are currently training into Ishtars, and now I'll probably advance them to carriers as well.
EVE 21 Day Trial Link If you upgrade be sure to message me about the reward.
Since I find missions so dull now I make money on my newish Industrial toon and it works out famously. She can work 9 manufacturing lines and each brings in around 25m ISK profit per day. Very AFK friendly I only need to log onto her for an hour each day.
25m * 9 = 225m * 30 = 6.75b a month. Currently at four accounts, looking to increase. Always wanted to be a POS owner who does research / copy / invention. Good ISK there too.

TLDR: Basically nullsec isn't the be all and end all some people claim it to be.

The real fun seems to be in low / WH space. Dunno how many threads have popped up about making null not so boring. Which it is.
Damn you and your 90day special returning player offer CCP!!!!! I've signed up to eve once more after several months away from the game. Pleasantly surprised to find out im still in my old corp as well after all this time. Not booted which was surprising really as they are very big and active usually regularly clear out inactives.
Now to work out what to skill train again and start making some ISK! all that comes tomorrow though as i really need to get to bed.
Another question guys...why on earth ppl selling toons with +20 mill or even +70 mill SP in character bazaar? why? these toons can be ready almost doing anything in game ? why throw them? ISK for selling them..these toons can make income more than that in couple of months so why they are selling them?
You gotta understand the majority of players are in highsec so it seems they get more content, it'd be nice if CCP focused on getting them down there but for a lot of people it's simply not worth it. I hung onto my WoW account for four years because I was attached to it, not because I enjoyed it, seems a lot of EVE players feel the same way.
Oh and you WILL get blobbed doing exploration sites in null (there is a reason why almost every single guide says to love your d-scanner).
And I didn't mean high SP, I guess a focused 15m pilot could do a 10/10 with minimal wasted skills. Probably less with certain ships.

You can make a decent Tengu pilot with around 12m SP (they're always in demand) and sell for around 6-7 billion ISK.
With good planning with attribute remaps to keep maximum SP / hour (2610 with +4 implants) you can get this in about 6 months.
With buddy trials you start with 21 days and if you refer off the Tengu account that's a bonus 30 days so so far one and three quarters free so you only have to pay for five months which can be done with two and a half billion ISK. That will net ya 3.5 - 4.5b profit.
Edit: I see you mean higher SP toons, some people have multiple accounts and want to scale down or they trade toons quite a bit trying different things. Believe it or not a 70m SP toon is nowhere near able to do everything :P If you started day one and trained at maximum speed until this day you still wouldn't of maxxed out all skills. That's why I like a few so I can focus them in their own direction.

Also it's a lot less profit than you're stating for making tengu pilots, you're looking at ~4b for 5 months worth of PLEX, 2x PLEX for transfer and implants. Then you have to actually sell it for that price, there's a lot of competition. You also have to hope that in 6 months when your character is ready Tengu pilots are still worth that much. It's a lot of investment for only 50% profit after six months.
do i have any change getting into incursions isk farming with over 6mil sp char ?
