I would LOVE to do so.  Some slightly themed matches would be great - avoid the general meta tactics that bog the game like repulsed packets and 800 bomb swarms, and you end up with some fun big fights.

How to get into it quickly-ish.

Host a game, make it private, make it some 10-32 vs 0 - depending what your computer can handle.  Set the game to mothership hunt mode, or whatever, and make motherships unarmed.  Set match number to 99, and go to sleep.  One team will stomp the enemy carrier, quickly.  You join that team, and afk.  Every win will rank you up about 20m, and the swarm of AI ships will do the winning for you.

Once you get further, you can make a ton with a ballistics AI and three heavy lasers.  Just wade into the field and rapid fire everything to death.  Getting ~5 lasers, heavy armor, and a mass of ammo will let you just shoot down enemy ships and harvest 9-12m each, until your patience runs out.

Unless anyone knows how to just edit the data files to give yourself money, that is...

You can level instantly to max level by killing 1 guy in those "no limit" servers, then reset to unlock mastermind mode and do it again.
