Noctis was a Success

Last week the noctis was introduced, and we at Eve University had to find a way to get it into our player's hands as quickly and easily as possible.  It helped that a BPO was donated to the Univeristy, so that all we had to do was start building.

We did a simple auction, where our students just placed a bid (anything over mineral price), and we starting building noctis as quick as possible using 2 prints.  The highest bids were filled first, and we proceeded down the list.  By the end of the week, we had put over 60 noctis into the hands of our students.

The majority of the bids were close to mineral price, but several was significantly higher.  As a result, we made some isk off of this deal.  As soon as we had firm numbers on the isk, we started looking into ways to use the isk to help Uni players.  Since the mission runners of the Uni had been the Noctis' primary consumer, and they supply us significant isk in taxes, we decided to do something to help them. 

After the wars ended, we lowered the tax rate to 0%, and will keep it there for 2 days for people to enjoy the new ship and rebuild their wallets.  After 2 days, it'll reset to the normal rate. We will continue this tradition of 2 days of 0% tax after wars until we've gone through all  of the Noctis isk.

Enjoy your ships and fly safe.
