What I'm interested in is the real world cost of this theft, get ready for some math!
From the Eve Online web store a 60 day time card is $35 (rounded) in US dollars.
Of interest the Australian dollar is now worth 1.0141 US dollars! (/me flex)
In game a 30 day PLEX is worth 331.5M ISK, and a mythical (these days) 30 day time card would be worth $17.50.
The heist was apparently 200 Billion ISK so...
331.5M ISK goes into 200B ISK 603.32 (rounded) times, multiply that by the mythical 30 day time card value of $17.50 and we arrive at the real world theft value of $10558.10* in US dollars.
Who says internet space ships isn't serious business?!?
*final figure is rounded and close enough for the purposes of this blog
