2 because I am not peasant and pay with real monies


This just made me giggle.

I'll stick with two accounts as well, cuz i can't be bothered to multitask beyond that number Lol

I 'play' EVE for fun, not 'WORK' EVE to pay for the extra accounts.

Having said this... i wonder if CCP has any numbers on how many people actually never pay for their account.

Funny that the people in the highest echelons of the mega alliances/corps prolly pay CCP the least (if not nothing at all) in RL Iskies Lol

Don't get me wrong though, i think it's admirable if u manage to make it so u never have to pay a dime to play EVE by leeching your corp/alliance Big smile

Soon to be zero, but I was running two, currently at one, all time high was four, but three was the most for any major work.

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?

will probably cut my industry accounts, i have 4 with 3 chars each using all the slots... once the current work is done i guess im done with t2 manufacturing. :(

the fun thing is that i had my money on t2 manufacturing being moved out of highsec... so in preparation i have been doing my manufacturing and invention in lowsec... been a year now and outside of a random bash that was pretty easy to chase off i had no incidents. so i was confident should the industry change move all production to low i was ready for it. in the end, it was the slot changes and the new found easiness of entry into hsec production that made me stop.

weird.

i just don't like the changes, specially the whole team things. and to top it all off there's nothing extra for lowsec manufacturing... just more pain due to having to use BPCs all the time. i don't really mind that change since i liquidated all my t2 BPOs about two years ago, but i did buy a few Capital Parts BPOs that had to get resold in a hurry. :/

While I am positive that they do have such numbers, considering that they keep records involving account activation, it's fairly irrelevant.
Someone had to buy the PLEX for it to exist, so those who sub with PLEX end up being just as, if not even more valuable. PLEX is cheaper when bought in bulk, but for singles cost $20, vs. the $14.99 per month for a direct payment sub.
The real curiosity for me would be: how much is each individual PLEX worth to them, based on being purchased in the various degrees of bulk available?

I have 3 accounts. One of them is nothing but 3 covert cyno characters. I keep wanting to unsub that one, but it keeps being damn useful from time to time.

Seems as the real responses are actually drowning out the "he is just whining" crowd and real info is actually being put up here for CCP consumption.

You think this information on the forums is somehow more comprehensive than the server and subscription data CCP has direct access to? They won't even give this thread a second glance. They don't need to.

I got some "real info" for ya:

800 / 30 = 26.66666

If you can't generate 27M isk per day on each of your accounts, you are seriously "doing it wrong."

Yes, and since there are multiple threads we will likely have enough buckets to fill the ocean.

I have underestimated the furious power of crowdsourcing this hashtag unsub forum dissatisfaction brigade.

That's some really bad mathematics. It's actually 800/1 if you plan to plex all 30 accounts.

Went from 2 to 1 and now to 0 beginning next month

I believe in being Pro-Active as Opposed to Reactive. Reactive tends to be more costly in time and money.

Had 2 accounts for a short time, back to 1 a while ago. Started playing Defiance lately, so will likely unsub for a while and come back at some point. I'm liking guns more than spaceships at the moment, plus Defiance is free (granted $12/mo isn't much, but still).

I have some "real info" for you:

Me sitting at work, eating my cup of oodles and noodles and lunch meat sandwich while reading the Eve forums would pay for one month of game time without having to "grind" in game.

If you can't generate that kind of money in real life, then get a better job...?

You're a little out in the field, here. The OP was lamenting the ISK cost of PLEX, not debating the merits of plexing vs paying cash. I'm simply pointing out that PLEX is, in fact, pretty damn cheap, IMO.

And just to feed the troll: if you have to "grind" to make 27m isk, you're doing it wrong, too Lol
