Hey Brendan,

Not really on topic, but is the Massively Mob still up and running in some form or another? I played back in January, but had to stop as classwork picked up. I'd like to start back up now that I have some free time again.

Massively Mob has died, not sure when it happened, but I came back after a few month break and there was never more than 2 people on and no one else who was on even replied when I talked in Corp chat lol.

Not only has it died, but Massively Motivated, its PvP "splinter group," has a weirdly offensive corp description...

Sorry, I meant to say, "Massively Dynamic," not "Massively Motivated."

@ScottishViking

Thats because they are in a lowsec pirate alliance. Its all about the ganks and the killboards now.

@(Unverified) It split into Massively Dynamic (the PvP corp) and Massively Motivated (the PvE corp), both of which are run by Massively readers now.

Man, people are so naive. 40 billion? Not a bad haul.

@Meagen Ooops, ignore that, I was skimming and thought it was another article about a successful scam.

Are you seriously telling me that there actually IS at least one lottery in EVE that isn't a scam? Unbelievable.

Yep, the BIG lotto is 100% legit.

@J Brad Hicks Surprisingly, most lotteries aren't scams. It's much more profitable to go through with a lottery than scam, because the reputation gain helps you do another lottery. If you oversell the tickets by at least 10% over the value of the prize, it's far more profitable to run a big series of legitimate lotteries than to pull a small scam for 1b or less.

Sometimes people choose to cash in that reputation by running a massive lottery that they intend to scam on. That's the thing to watch out for. But so far the BIG lottery has handled a lot of ISK over the years and hasn't shown any signs of going that way. When you look at how much ISK they make from tickets compared to the prize total, it's no surprise they choose to keep the lottery going!
