Yet another plex thread

But this one a question not a moan.....I recently bought 6 plex to sell on the market before the plex changes. I have still to sell 3 at 1.3 bill per plex.
With the new changes to the plex system I am a little confused as to any changes. Is it now likely that I will sell these plex's at all? Are they now worth the same amount as they were before.

Polite answers please, as it is just a little confusing.

they should now each have been converted to 500 plex. Should still be worth around the same. Depends on how much the market fluctuated and what supply and demand are doing.

Right now the prices are crazy high thanks to people trying to get good money out of bad math people. If you act fast, you could easily get a little bit extra from your PLEX.

People are taking advantage of confusion by selling 1 (new)plex for "only"900mil or 1.1 bil or some such. New plex are old plex broken up into 500 pieces. It now takes 500 (new) plex for 30 days game time. It's kind of funny, in a way. Caveat Emptor.

OP, you're fine. Just put your (new) plex on the market for 2.7 million each or some such, someone will buy 500 of them (which equals what one old plex was) and you'll make your isk just like you would have before. The overall value between 1 old plex and 500 new plex is similar, just now what is called a plex is a smaller unit of "currency" (1 500th of the old plex) with the same name.

The prices of plex will decrease in the near future due to the fact that demand will decrease.
CCP had a brainwave or just plain stupid coding errors in the no-Plex for character transfer issue.
So I would say, sell when you can, or face a plain loss.

That's the way I see it.

PLEX prices are demand driven and there is a huge surplus right now due to the little surprise in this patch. CCP needs to bite the bullet and hire an outside consultant before making these changes that are likely to produce the opposite of what they've convinced themselves - living in their little Icelandic fantasy bubble - is the correct path for their financial betterment.
