I want low PLEX prices so I can keep my accounts running without having to play more than a few hours per week (or spend RL money on a bad game such as EVE).

If getting prices to fall requires me to shut down my accounts, then these low prices have literally no value to me.

Why don't you close your accounts first so i can keep mine running at low cost?


So wait,you spend a few hours a week play a "bad game" so you can keep playing that "bad game" for free? Nor that I wish to cost ccp business, but why the heck don't you find a cheaper or alternative free game to play that you like? Seriously, the idea that you waste time playing a game you view as bad just so you can keep playing that bad game is obsurd. That's like saying you spend a few hours a week working a crappy job just so you can pay for the gas to go to the crappy job.

Obviously, there is something good about this game or you really need to reassess your priorities.

Why are you even here? You don't want to play more than a few hours and you think EVE is a bad game. Why are you here?

FC, what do?

Remember when PLEX was 300m? The price of PLEX always goes up in the long-term. If you are ISK-rich, I'd convert them into PLEX before they reach 1b.

Well the poster clearly wants people to not buy plex until he's bought in, then hehe

It seems, that PLEX are an object of speculation.

Maybe some ISK-"Scrooge McDuck"s buy them now and wait for the ideal point of time to sell them again.

But ... maybe we see them whine ... when and if (!) the speculation bubble bursts.

Lucky are the ones, who do not depend on PLEXes now.

There seems to be a lack of understanding of basic economic principles and basic math is a lost cause in certain areas of the world and coming here confirms this fact.

Hasn't anyone noticed that the same myriad of PLEX threads all seem to pop up at about the same time of year, every year?

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here...

I might care about this if you could be more specific about which puppy they're kicking?


Well I guess we see who on the forums advocates the kicking of puppies Evil

Personally, I like to shave kittens and then put them in the snow.

When it comes to PvP, I am like a chiwawa hanging from a grizzley bears pair of wrinklies for dear life.

It becomes a vicious cycle that increases the price of PLEX more and more.

If you don't want these high PLEXes, then you should abstain from buying them unless you absolutely need to.

The prices will naturally fall.


Confirming that shouting "No!" has always been effective at preventing the stampede. You should trade stocks.



He knows that. You just fell into HIS speculation trap.

They won't fall until the inflation monster is brought down to 2-5% per year. Incursions are the cause of the devaluation of your ISK, not alts.

PLEX-Bubble? What *will* those evil bankers think of next..?

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Most people buy as the need arises. Only speculators buy on market movement.

And given this is Eve Online, I wish the market speculators all the luck in the world. Twisted
