Hey OP... don't like it? Then don't use it. You look silly running to the forums and bitching about something you don't plan on using anyway. It is very convenient to be honest. Will be useful to train cyno alts without having to make up a whole new account and keeping it running, then spending PLEX to transfer your character to the account anyway. It's not all about you OP.

of course its a rip off. A full 30d plex only for training, what about using the second toon? Ow wait, you cant login twice.
Oh wait, I don't have to pay character transfer fees (2 PLEX) to consolidate my characters.
Oh wait, I don't have to keep a second subscription (1 PLEX a month) just to retain access to my special-purpose character.
Oh wait, I don't have to open a second account, transfer the character over (2 PLEX), keep the account running (1–4 PLEX), then transfer the character back (2 PLEX) just because the special purpose the character was built for was massively changed in a patch and now requires a whole bunch of new skills trained up.

The new option is a bargain and a boon.

RIP off? for CCP we are ripping them off.

Instead of not training a main for a few weeks to make 2 cyno chars, or simply transferring, or buying them, we apply a PLEX and get to train, and still use the account once the PLEX runs out.

This is an example, CCP, of what you do when you invite over-indulged, entitled types to you game about cold harsh dark stuff. Give an Inch, they are unsatisfied and demand a MILE.

Unless for some wierd reason they happened to want, I don't know... a research alt to churn out BPCs for invention. An Alt like that takes less than a month to train but needs to be on an active account to function - therefore the ability to train it for one month on a second account slot without disrupting the training of the primary on the account is of value.

There is the technical issue of switching characters in-game (which is why we've never had in-game character switching), the fact that training three would provide an unfair advantage over those running two accounts...


Of course if you believe that an alt account is such vastly better value then there is nothing, to my knowledge, preventing you from utilising that option.

Here's my gift to you - a Hauler Alt that costs 2 PLEX. It can fly blockade runners, freighters and industrials, and has three jump clones!

Under the current system, it would cost at least twice as much. With same account training . . . just two PLEX!

(don't forget to plug in +3 implants right away, and remap at the appropriate points. It's actually 59 days, for some reason it's not reflecting the time savings from implants)

Basically OP is qqing because she wants to be able to train multiple characters simultaneously on the account without paying for it. Shame on you OP.


I have 6 accounts which i pay for with rl money

I am not a carebear, i don't mine for money and ISK

I am saying, this is downright stupid idea, if people could afford plexes, they would buy second accounts

There is no logic to this at all


What do you use those six accounts for?

I think there there should be a discount do dual training. e.g. 1 plex = 40 days game time... but i guess if you don't like it, don't buy it.

Highsec is owned by players now. Systems 0.5-1.0 are New Order Territory. All miners and other residents of Highsec must obey The Code. Mining without a permit is dangerous and harmful to the EVE community. See www.MinerBumping.com

Seems like a fantastic idea to me.

I have an account dedicated to doing nothing but creating research alts to cram into the empty spaces in my other accounts. With this i would actually save money by not having to transfer as many characters or keep the factory account going for as long.

also i would get to where i want to be 4x faster than i currently am. It would cost me a few bucks, but i really dont care.

And having 30 invention capable research slots, a bunch of manufacturing slots i'll actually never use, 3x the PI potential per account, and 15 research agent slots that are shortly going to be nerfed is an amazing thing to behold.

Because they thought they could train more than one character on the same account for free (free as in no isk and no PLEX).

I'm sure they can see the benefit, they just would have liked it to go further.

Contract me all of your in-game belongings and ISK, then hit the biomass button.... it's the only way to stop CCP from taking all your money!

I. for one, think CCP should offer as many optional services as they can.... more money for CCP means more EVE awesomeness for me.

Actually I see them losing money from this. I only have one account at the moment, and have had no need for an alt account so I wouldn't pay for one. However this gives me the option to train an alt in a very specialised way but not lose training time on my main character.

So you don't want CCP to make money to keep running this game? Ok then.

You are a particularly bad troll...


You simply don't understand how alts are used. In order for most alts to be useful, they have to be online at the same time....Oops

And CCP will do whatever is needed to take more of your money, this is EVE.....

I don't think you understand how alts are used. I'm going to use this to train about 4 freighter pilots for logistics stuff. Instead of costing me either a month of training on 4 accounts that are busy with other things I can just pay about 2b and be done with it.

Don't need separate accounts for that.

Not all alts are equal, just depends what you want to use that alt for. You are right about still needing another account for your alt if you want it in the game with your main. But there are other types of alt that don't require your main to be online so for this type it's a welcome change, trader is a good example.
