Since you will not be providing any FiS content soon and you are using EvE as a Beta test for WoD. I do believe we deserve a 5 dollar drop in subscription cost until you release a proper expansion.

I play EVE Online for free because I have a Tengu and I know how to run l4s really well.

I bet those free minerals you mined are really awesome too.

The advantage of a bad memory is that one can enjoy the same good things for the first time several times.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.

2 hours of incursions pays for 1 month, no need to lower the cost :P

Lowering the subscription cost will just encourage the common riff raff to play.

This would be a selling point to CCP.

Anyone to cheap to fork over that 15.00 currency?

Anyone too poor to play EVE? You should have enough time on hands to grind ISK to make someone else pay your subscription (which is then actually closer to 20.00 currency).

You probably should go read the Making ISK guide. It will open your eyes. Even better, read the EVE-Survival mission guides, specifically the parts that talk about "blitzing". And research ISK/LP.

Au contraire.

Raise the sub to $20 and use that to fund GenericConsoleShooter514 and Sparkly Faggots Online. Then you can stop trying to milk us in other, more insidious ways (vis-à-vis, the NEX store).

Interesting suggestion, they could lower the NEX-prices.

All in all CCP would be paid by the masses then, not by a select few.

Subs are probably overdue for an increase actually.

Yeah since we are playing a 'premium' MMO we already got highest GTC costs, and now you want to rise costs further? For vampires and failed shooters?

Well if your time is worthless, then yes you are playing for free.

The only reason they haven't increased the subs so far is becasue from day one EVE subs have been 50% higher than most other games, the other games are only just starting to catch up now P

The real question is not can you afford it, but do you feel Eve in its current state is WORTH $15/month. IMO its not.

However I haven't had to fork over RL $$ for quite some time due to playing the market. Even then I felt like I was getting cheated having to pay 300m for a Plex.

I'd honestly rather pay $15 but also have CCP put $15 worth of effort into developing EVE.

Oh, OK, $12 or $13 worth. I guess they gotta eat.

Even when I was paying RL money to subscribe, the subscription was easily the cheapest part of the expenses. I usually go through £5-£15 worth of booze in a solid evening of playing EVE, for instance. Compared to that, 38 Euros a quarter is minor.
