Yeah if would be nice if they could provide some specifics whatever is the EVGA GTX 560 or the standard GTX 560 not to mention that there isnt a list of country's that they send the package to. So overall a total mess for an overpriced card.



there were absolutely no tech specs of the offered card on the site where you should have been able to buy it.

I assume the page will look something like this, but without the large red stamp on it -- page screenshot. That's from https://secure.eveonline.com/nvidia/ as was pointed out earlier.

Oh, at least it's not all sold out as it turns out. But the whole implementation of the offer, or more like the failure of setting up one properly is.. well, :facepalm:

Update:

Due to technical difficulties we've had to push the offer back by two hours. We put up a news item about this here and a notification thread here.

Sorry guys!

well that was a waste of time. babying the market orders to convert isk to plex and then spam the account management site only to not ever even get to the screen that has the offer.

only thing i can say is, at least i paid 430-450m each for my plex with buy orders. Ill take a nice profit when i redeem them in jita and sell them.

So, the offer starts at 18:00 or is valid until 18:00 (keep pressing F5 until 18:00)?

It depends on whether original offer started at 16:00 or was valid until 16:00.

... Since they pushed it back 2 hours.

Can we get a list of country's to where you can send the cards to? So we don't have to bash that website constantly

I think that red info thingy stating that you are not eligible for this offer and grayed out button caused by mistake on CCP side. And this is the reason of this delay.

As many stated here, lottery is way more fair way to make this kind of offers.

Ever think of spacing it out a bit? A lot of US TZ guys won't get on this because of either school or work since it's morning here....

Does everyone not understand that the higher that PLEX is, the happier CCP is? The more isk that a plex trades for, the more people will buy them to sell.

If plex get up to 900mil+ then why would you run a 2nd or 3rd account for making isk when you could just buy plex, do none of the work, and end up with more isk!

Just another way to bring in the micro transactions.

GTX 560 is arround 150 € here. Cheapest Plex (legaly) is something like 27€ for two of them.



For what I see, in the PLEX store they sell one PLEX for 19.95€ , 12 for 209.94 €. I see one GTX 560 in Rue Du Commerce site at 159 €, the most expensive at 293€. So or I'm missing something here, or this is a scam!!! How come it is more expensive in EVE them in the commerce? Why should I spend almost 400€ in something that I can have for 159?

Where is the advantage of this thing? Shocked

Got one \o/

I am poor IRL. Can't afford new card. Old one is dying. This is a great offer thanks CCP.

To all you haters, wake up, its something for virtual currency. Essentially a free card for people who can't afford it.
