Ive checked up on the multiple char training and im abit baffled over the prices.

Price for it is 1 plex or 19,95$ for 30 days.

14,95 is the price for 30 days for an account.


Is players that stupid that they pay more for multiple training than just making a New account?? Or do EVE assume players dont give a f.... over the prices.


In my view multiple char training is to give players the oppurtunity to Train and let EVE earn some $ on it.... and thereby it should not cost more than a monthly Subscription.

A more fair deal would be that u get 60 days for 20$ or 1 plex, or half the monthly billing price 14,95, ergo 7,5$.

As it is now, its an bad offer that only the stupid players go for, that dont see that one month of Subscription is cheaper.

Makes no sences at all.....

Some of us use ISK to play, and its simply 1 plex a month or two.

If the 2nd toon does not see heavy use, we may not want to pay 2x as much per month to have use of it. so a Few plex are sunk to train specific skills, and that is it.

For people that pay with real money, I agree, its dumb

The thing is goatman, you can use multiple char training for training like, a hauler alt under a month. Afterwards you can stop paying for multichar training and still have access to the char. If you get the char on a different account you need to pay for the second one aswell to use it.

With paying for a "2nd account", instead of multiple training, u can use both accounts simultaneously, which is not possible With multiple training. And in my view, it would be more interesting to have 2 accounts then.

And i do see ur point to... but the price u pay for it, is in my opinion too high compared to the price for an account

That's your opinion.

In my opinion, I can afford $19.95 a month to train an alt that will eventually be done training and I do not need to have on a separate account.

MCT is useful for short-term training. I am training a PI alt for a month or two, and I don't want to have to fund a second account after he's done training (that would sort of take the point out of the PI alt). If I wanted to bring him over to my account I'd have to PLEX, so I have two options:

Option A: Multiple character training for two months = 2 PLEX ($40)
Option B: Separate account for two months PLUS transfer = $30 + 1 PLEX ($50)

It costs less money (or ISK which I would prefer to use) to activate MCT in this scenario.

It has nothing to do if someone can afford it or not. When it cost 1/4 more than a months Subscription, its looks pretty wrong when u reflect over the numbers.

It was never supposed to be cost-effective, it was intended to be used for short-term training plans. Why would I want a whole new account for a new PI or trading guy?

An excellent summation of your post. May I suggest investing in a spell checker?

No, your rights end in optimal+2*falloff

i want to train an alt for 2-3 months but want to have access to him at all times, while still training a main character on the same account. i plan to keep playing eve for awhile and making another account would end up costing a lot more.
