PirateIve been away for awhile. Now CCP has finally figured out how to raise the price of ISK so high that it will force players who want to play the actual REAL EVE to pay a monthly subscription. Five hundred PLEX will cost you aprox 2.5 billion ISK on the market or $20 in EVE'S store. But you say "I can play for free.' Yes you can play for free if you want to be cannon fodder for the REAL EVE PLAYERS!!! In one swift stroke EVE forced most players to pay a monthly fee or become CANNON FODDER!!!

Note: CCP tried this once before by making ICE mining so unproductive that players could not make large sums of ISK.

I stand corrected. 500 plex only cost 1.25 billion credits. Gee that's much better. Im sure every player can afford this every month.

And why should they have to afford? And why in the world would CCP make effort towards everyone being able to afford plexing their accounts?
