Greetings,

Keep on topic and stay away from personal attacks. This is about the most general topic I have seen in a while, curious to see it run its course.

I've never had more than two active accounts at any given time.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

Recently, around Fanfest, cut back to 2 accounts.

Dare say, the next time CCP sends that "SURVEY" around, they are in for a bit of a shock on some of the results.

Might see a rebound, but hey, people are waiting to see some content actually delivered before they vote with their wallets again.

Oh don't worry. We're gonna make it run alright.

As fast as possible right into a lock. Twisted

They say most of your brain shuts down on the EvE forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

Starting to wonder if thats not the best way to go but I've really gotten accustomed to a third for offgrid boosting. I went as high as 5 at one point. Wasted some time there.....

If PLEX wasnt so dang high this wouldnt even be an issue..... PI used to almost cover the accounts.... not so much anymore.

I'm dropping four accts in the next week as they expire.

My GTX590 crapped out and now the backup card failed. I can't be bothered to install a client on this laptop (plus it's my kids and he would be most unhappy with me if I did) so all I have for the next few weeks is forum access with two accts active.

I've actually increased my number of accounts by 6 in recent times, possibly because I'm not a poor, lazy pleb.

CODE is just a bunch of pirates; smart, organized pirates. It doesn't help to rage at them because that is exactly what they want. Dust yourself off and get back on your feet, you don't even have to talk to them.

Perhaps EVE should do a rollback to day 1 every 10 years. If nothing else the tears would be epic Big smile

I dropped from two accounts to one account to no accounts and now back to one account. The account I dropped (and didn't reactivate when I came back) was a mining/production alt account for funsies but I have now decided with plex prices so high that If I want isk so badly I'll just sell a plex.

I dropped from three accounts to two. Due to plex prices.

Same here.

Seems like we only ever have threads of players mentioning that they are reducing their character count.
Where are the threads mentioning how many new ones they are creating and adding to their accounts?

For a week, I'd like to see CCP only allow subscribers to use one character. The breakdown would be epic.

Eve is dying is why.

I'd get more but nowadays I can't get excited over multibox mining anymore...

3 accounts, 4 characters.

I purchased 1 character to use during the AT, so I'll sell that after the tournament and then drop back to 2 accounts. Not because of PLEX prices, I pay subscription. Just because I don't need 2 pvp pilots.

Since the ICE nerf and PLEX 800mil prices I'm down to 3 accounts. Might drop to 2.

How many accounts are you down to now?

EDIT: 3 active accounts, 2 unsubbed ones.

Evidently you don't do PI on over 50 Planets.... Anything but passive....pretty much a clickfest. According to you, anything outside ratting must be passive isk. Incorrect.
