Thanks for the update Mr. Falcon. <3

I hope you know how much we love you, the devs.


PLEX for Good is letting us use your server time and your electricity to earn game ISKies that you convert to RL money to help people in real, actual trouble. When you explain it to somebody who doesn't know anything about MMOs or spreadsheets in space, they have this moment when they look back at you like their mind is blown.






Big Lynx, I hope your friend makes it safely off Everest. I never made it onto the mountain, I lack the experience and confidence for it.. so big respect for anyone who has the courage to climb that rock.



PLEX for Good is just one of the things that this community does, when the stuff hits the fan the community pulls together and sets out to do some good for its own sake.

Love this game.

Just a couple of things

a) I am glad that our Sibs made it through that experience and I hope everybody else in our little community is OK
b) here's another link to help out. I've been a contributor for years and these guys never cease to amaze me with their abbility to move into emergencies in the blink of an eye; they have a permanent project in Bihar, India, wich was reinforced after the floods earlier this month, and some of the teams there moved into Nepal right after the earthquake.

There's little blessings in our world better than getting medical aid when you need it and as soon as you need it.

Otherwise I gladly step up, and take over as I would love to see donations maximized for "PLEX for GOOD".

Isn't it a bit early without official confirmation?
Or did I miss it?

True. :)
Just wasn't sure if I maybe missed the announcement.

For some reason the thread about the extended downtime is still open as well ...
... and CCP Falcon never updated it either.

Reported it ... still there.

That threw me a bit off. I'm pretty off the last days anyway ...
... but it's finally getting better. ^_^

On a more general note, I've spoken with people internally at CCP today, and the general consensus on this is basically "**** yeah, let's do this!"

I have a few things to straighten out with our new CFO tomorrow as this is the first time he's dealt with PLEX for GOOD, but there should be more details over the course of the next couple of days once things are squared away.



About as close to confirmed as can be without actually being confirmed.

I understand that as a green light - Otherwise I will of cause return all items (or keep for next PLEX for GOOD event per senders request).


I really want to avoid being "literally removed from existence in EVE Online" Twisted

Will likely be announced "soon" - could not resist Blink


I already have a few ideas in the works, on how to raise some ISK - more to come soon.
If you got an idea, you are also welcome to contact me if I can be of help.

I would go with the British red cross as they have better access via the UKs close links to the country.

So I can give ISK or contract a PLEX in game to help out with this?

How do I go about doing so?

From https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/PLEX_for_GOOD

Quote:
To cut the story short, you buy a PLEX via account management or the ingame market, or use one that you have been holding, and then you make a contract and assign it to the player "CCP PLEX For GOOD". This player is controlled by CCP, and all PLEX assigned to this player through contracts will be converted into real money and sent to charity.




I would just wait for Mr. Falcon's Dev Blog for instructions..

It's best to wait until a drive officially opens before donating anything to the character listed on the PLEX for GOOD wiki page.

Right now I have everything drafted, however in the EU a company can't simply donate to charity. We need to have a formal agreement in place with them, which our legal guys are working on.

Hoping that we'll be ready to kick everything off over the next couple of days Smile

Sorry for the delay!
