Pokemon? Interesting interpretation. Just a CCP smiley. Not sure there is any special history involved.

My first raven for my first level 4 mission. I lost it in the 1st pocket of Worlds Collide because I did not understand aggro management correctly.

Still by biggest and most embarrassing loss so far.

Replaced it immediately with a Navy Raven though, because "never fly ...". Also I was furious.

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

Spend the start of my eve career mostly missioning. Skipped cruisers for some reason and went straight from a dessie to a hurricane. Was very excited about it 8)

(in hindsight, it wasnt a great fit with t1 tank and t1 ac's. Recently replaced it for a better looking and fitetd cyclone)

My first big investment was a Battlecruiser, I chose the Mymirddon for the omni tank and dual-repping at cap stable abilities. I just bought it, and then was bring it back to home station. Two jumps after I first undocked it, shiny new, no fittings even. Got it blown it up by a war target that just happened to be sitting on the gate I was passing through.

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

My original Uni character (Margeux) bought a BLAP Vexor and I was sweating the cost. A few weeks later I fitted a Machariel for Incursions. When the Drone Event happened it was easier for me to buy Margeux a new one instead of retrieving the one still sitting in Amy. Probably should have gone for the VNI instead.

Not too long ago the original Vexor was handed down to Stasia to do some mission running around the AMC :lol:

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

I'm not quite on Arc's level yet, but have been considering it. I've been playing on an off since around 2008 and there are only a few times I've really been concerned about the cost I'm paying out. I think the first time was a few years ago when I bought my first full high grade slave pod at around 2.2b. It was a difficult one because there was nothing really "there" so to speak.

The real big one was this thing though.

Around 32b in total just gone, only managed to even use it once!

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

I can just about remember buying my first Raven on another character. For 100mil which I lost!!
Also a Nightmare at just under a Billion!
More recently a Freighter I purchased for 999 million and then sold last week for 1.2 billion.
Spent most of that money though.

Can never seem to earn enough isk haha

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

Well, I bought an Ishtar a while back. Stupidly I didn't permananently fit a DCU to it and it went kaboom a few weeks back. I've since bought a cloaky industrial (Viator) and I have to say, I enjoy flying cloaked and fast a lot better. :)

My first big purchase was a Raven. I checked assets and I found it 60 jumps away. Forgot I had it. :oops:

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

I've been playing for about 6 weeks and dropped just over 100M on an Astero + fittings. I had about 140M in ISK so it created a huge hole in my wallet. After reading some of these posts, comparatively, it was a drop in the bucket and feel better about things, so thanks!

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

Like Victor and Cryptic, my first big purchase was a 2-web Vindicator with Pith-B.

Back then, the Vindi hull cost more than the Pith B. I dropped more than a billion isk on that ship. Incurstion fleets ran every night for 3 months straight and I paid for that ship in less than 3 weeks- since then, I reckon it's earned me about 35 billion isk, probably more.

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

The first purchase that felt “big” to me was when I upgraded my hauler/trader alt from flying fast frigates to flying a blockade runner. Couple of hundred million, which was about half my net worth at the time, and the idea was that I could use it to support my main living in lowsec, and also to continue hauling underpriced stuff out of lowsec for a respectable profit.

Went very well, I’d say. Left me able to do independent logistics while living in the LSC (and flying much cheaper ships in pvp), and made a couple of billion trading in it as well, before I moved on to other methods. Still have the ship, and still pull it out regularly when It’s the appropriate tool for a hauling job.

Re: Your First Big Purchase: What, When, Why? How'd It Go?

My first big purchase is an Astero, and with fittings, all added up to around 80 million isk! I still need to train Cloaking to IV before I even think about undocking the thing. So I guess its going quite well, as my Astero hasn't undocked a single time since I bought it a week ago.
P.S. The platinum insurance for my Astero only covers up to 1 million - out of a ~70 million ship :lol:
