I'm new. I started playing this month. So far I'm really enjoying it. I decided I'm gonna do a bit of real investing and bought some plex. I had 3 sold 2 and decided to hold onto one for now. I'm wondering if any market gurus have any predictions on it's value in the future with the possible surge of new players. I'm honestly financially set for a while as it is so I'm not in a rush to sell it, but I'm curious.

Fair enough. This is why I like this game. It's the more "real" feeling mmo I've ever played.

For 500 million ISK I can send you a trading strategy guide guaranteeing you to double the number of plex you have every week. I need the ISK upfront though.

iceland will rename their currency from ISK to PLEX

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Depends how many newbros stay

if a lot, price is gonna fall since new chars can't make 1b+ a month and will rather put plex on the market rather than take it away.

if a few, price is gonna fall or stabilize a bit (speculation bubble bursting) and than continue rising

Try here and here

GD's a bit tricky to get a good answer on topics like this. If you want the topic moved into MD, click the flag in the OP, report it and ask a mod to move. GL getting an answer, curious on this one myself ;)

If PLEX became RL currency in Iceland I probably move there lol. Pay for meals using PLEX, send kids to uni and pay tuition fees with PLEX. Buy booze with PLEX. What a life it would be hehe.

As for OP, at your budget there are other items that you can trade with higher profit potential in much shorter term. You will have to wait for long time to turn 1b ISK PLEX to 2B ISK, and that probably takes at least a year (or even then it may not be 2B per PLEX)

Flipping items in Jita will get you that figure in much much shorter time frame with this level of ISK. People who trade heavily are working with hubdreds of billions. You can ride their manipulation moves and profit for sure, but if you want to make ISK through flipping PLEX I would say you need at least 20-30b to work with.

Cheers Love! The cavalry's here!

First few weeks, or even month, after alfa clones will be introduced, the price will be stable. Later on army of arm east european alfa get enough ISK to try to convert to omega and price will sky rocket.

Then they find that they can't make enough ISK in their first month as an Omega to pay for the second month. Then things get interesting.

As Marsha pointed out, Market Discussions is the place to talk about this.

It's a bit too early to say now as we have no way of knowing how successful the November changes will be. While most people have been looking at how alphas who are completely new to EVE may affect the plex economy there are also the established or older players who aren't currently subbed that may come back as well.

Then things can get complicated. Older returners may have alts they can strip for skillpoints to sell through injectors, or stockpiles of assets or isk, either of which will affect plex / extractor / injector prices.

In summary : it will depend on how many "new" players come in and what the mix of new vs. returning old players is.

they're only going to go up in cost because people want a weasel people out of isk

I wouldn't be surprised at all if they go to 3 billion in the next 4 months

Not so fast, cowboy. Not necessarily so. Were it just some mod, or ship, yeah, I can see it. However, this is the basis of monthly payment on which so many hard core unemployable EVE wannabees plan to stake their digital fortunes. If you grind maxxing your ISK income for thirty days (not actually "playing" EVE all the while) and can only come up with 99.9999999999999999% of the price of PLEX your Zodiac...Zether...whatever - PAID ACCOUNT, suddenly becomes an Alphabet...Elephan...well FREE TO PLAY account and all that effort has to transfer over to the next month...or whatever convoluted time keeping system these wizards use.

That makes it core to game play, not just another shopping item. Be advised, noobs, tons of people like to post stealth threads to create propaganda pushing their in-game agendas pretending here to be disinterested, third parties, just making "objective observations" ... you know ... using fact-based "logic" to ... drive home their points.
When we say "trust no one" we really do mean it.

Yeah, go ahead now and make the bonehead obvious response and say,
"That means we can't trust this post YOU just posted...!"

My response? You're right. You can't.

The following statement is true.
The previous statement is false.

Trust no one.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.
