Counterintuitively, we buy ISK. We do it to track, find and terminate RMT operations. Buying ISK for this purpose is in our budget as good return of investment in the fight against RMT.

Crafty as they are, they have a weakness. It's money. They do anything to get it. Account hacking, credit card fraud, exploits and botting is all part of THEIR game. However, protecting our players from violations of the EULA and more serious offenses is OUR game, and we have the team to do it.

Sadly, some buyers may be affected when ISK originating from such sources is confiscated and bans issued. However, our EULA is also clear that players should not buy outside of EVE or CCP. We regret all damages caused by RMT and will never tire of telling people about PLEX and how it may be purchased on our website and through our official retail partners, listed here. Or that PLEX can then be sold via the in-game for ISK. Heaps of ISK!

Now, thar's something ye might want to try at home.

This leaves only one question...

Who will WE be buying from this week?

Counterintuitively?

It was obvious! Only morons wouldn't do it to stomp down those who deserve it!


After reading through it.... the last line....

Would be nice if PLEX wasn't 723 million. People right now are just going to pay for subs because the prices are ridiculously high. Of those who find "plexing" too daunting a prospect, a good portion are just going to go inactive. Straight

CCP ignore me please, I make too much sense.

I won't sell you ISK, I may "double" it if you send me some though.

Burn them all tbh.

Eve is 15 bucks a month, less if you pay for a year.
If you have trouble paying *roughly* 15 bucks a month (0.50 cts a day) for your favorite game then you have bigger problems then the price of PLEX.

It's relatively easy to clear enough ISK to pay for a PLEX,10-15 hours a month of running lvl 4 missions will do it if you take (the right) LP into account.

Actually in context to what this thread is about, it is GOOD that plex prices are so high. It gives a good return for those willing to legally RMT $$ > ISK.

and it reduces RMT profits as they get less $ per isk.

CCP Grimmi, does this include "in the family" RMT? That is, when one member of a corp, alliance or coalition gets on TS, says "I could use some ISK" and someone else says "I'll sell you some" and they do the transaction? Is it that, sometimes, one of those two people is actually a CCP employee?

Do you dispute the charges after CCP confiscates your bought ISK? Why give the ISK sellers actual money?

Isn't selling to CCP allowed? Just last week I sold 8.6b ISK to CCP for EVE: The Second Decade Collector's Edition. :P
