I should probably mention though that I'm not going to be dropping below my current level of accounts anytime soon. If anything I'll only be adding more. I just don't have the money right now.

I got some "real info" for ya:

800 / 30 = 26.66666

If you can't generate 27M isk per day on each of your accounts, you are seriously "doing it wrong."





If you are spending most of your day trolling these forums because you are emotionally attached to a video game.... you are doing it wrong :)

You Miners think you have it so damn tough.  When I first started playing we didnt even have mining lasers.  You had to fly close to an asteroid.....pop a hatch and gnaw at it with your teeth.   - Bitter Vet

Look, I think there is some value in lodging complaints.. and sometimes it even makes sense to use GD as a platform for doing so. For an example of a spectacular failure, see the guys in the Kronos drone skill change threads (they didn't even get points refunded that CCP dev admitted they were due). For an example of a success, look at the Ero1 threadnaught.

Nonetheless, if there's something about EVE that you think is going in a negative direction, I think it makes sense to have a constructive discussion around it. Do you think there are realistic solutions that CCP could look at? Could it be possible that what you perceive as a problem actually isn't? There are lots of questions one could ask..

CCP can look at this thread and find 30 people who have dropped two accounts a piece. Great. Good vent. But what do you really want to accomplish? Is there some intelligent correlation you can draw from the information people have given you so far?

Or maybe none of this matters.

I find the "waaaaa Im quiting!" posts to be more indicative of emotioh\nal attachment than the reasoned responses that put it in perspective. Bear

I'm +2 accounts, now with 3 total, all payed subs. I might get the two new ones to make enough to plex all three. But this has nothing to do with game mechanics or changes. It is mostly because I have more time to play when I'm single. When I find a new woman to hang out with, I'm quite certain I'll drop back down to 1 account.

I honestly feel like I just read fifty shades of dumb. --CCP Falcon

Good point.... single vs relationship demographics have a monster impact on number of accounts (playing time) you have as well. Didnt even think of that one. Thanks

No correlation.....just wanted to see if anybody else was dropping accounts right now and why they were doing it. If CCP sees this thread as useful then so be it. If not... Oh well. It was for me in the first place. People on here have tried to derail it or spin it into something that its not....

I'm dropping accounts (first timesince 2010) so I wondered if there was anybody else doing the same. All the complainers and whiner wannabes I just entertain myself poking fun at. If I hurt some feelings .... damn. Might be time to look in the mirror and self-evaluate. Hurt feelings from an inet messageboard is a joke to me but some take it seriously for some reason.

ok back on topic.... 2 days left on this account..... might as well reset some extractors and drop a plex into it in case I decide to activate again. I think they are still doing the 2 hours to PLEX or sub an account thing. Might as well have a PLEX sitting here.

Price of PLEX isn't a problem - problem is lack of new content and gameplay styles combined with somewhat strong competition from 2 other Internet spaceship games.

p.s. 3 days left for this account. I feel like I'll let it expire and there is high chance I won't reactivate it until territory / WiS expansion (so never).

I'm sorry but competition from which "2 other internet spaceship games"? Clearly you are not referring to vaporware called Star Citizen and Elite: Dangerous is just about to reach open beta next week.

My # of accounts active are linked to how active I want to be (generally 3-7), which varies depending on how emo/tinfoil/bored I am in regards to EVE. It is not affected by the cost of plex at all. If you can make 650 mil you can make 700 or 800, and since making isk is really easy it's just not a factor.

A big part of this is that I do not see a division between "work" and "fun". I don't do stuff just because it makes me money, I do stuff I enjoy and become good enough to make money with it. So I'm not actually "working", I'm playing and being entertained... while making money.

Yes, yes I am. Thanks for noticing.

Exactly.
Earning for a plex is not an issue, or paying using $.
2 accounts are optimal - very boring times ahead.

Been on one account since soundwave started the campaign against high sec with the 80% decryptor nerf.
But Hhave been training a 2nd char on that account now long enough to amass 36 million SP.

Due to plex prices and my displeasure with CCP's accelerated attacks on high sec, that 2nd char training lapses in 14 days.

It comes in waves. I run pretty steady the past few years with 8 accounts subbed at any one time. I don't have a reason to let any lapse right now. Can't have enough Cyno's and Falcon's flying around my little corner of the world

From 5 to 1 account (1 support, 3 Industrial dropped). All where subbed never plexed. Reasons? Mostly for dumbing down the game and a few less important reasons.

Down from 3 to 1

Previous changes to decryptors made invention less alt-dependant.
Due to industry changes i decided to get out of the market.
One account still tryign to sell stuff i have too much of and idle, may as well burn plex, isk is no good for anything else right now.
