traffic control seems sluggish. having long delays loading planets in Planet View, switching ships, and leaving ships.

I'd give things a couple of days before reacting to market PLEX prices. Let the dust settle, see where supply/demand really start to go.

I like the PLEX vault, but I wish I could move it to my Neocom, rather than having it in my hanger. Some may like it one way, some another. Would an option between the two states be do-able?

I put hours into supertuning the advanced settings, sliders left to right to see what affects what exactly...and there was nearly no Information about lowering those advanced settings announced.

And i normally read everything that is upcoming in the future updates...

So the REASON why you did it according to the Patch Notes...

IF it has something to do with "Performance/SeverLoad/Compability" Issues, than sell it to us like that....

It would have cost you nothing to leave the old directional and probe scanners in the game. IMO the new scanners make quality of life much worse. Why aggravate your players by making their game play worse when all you had to do was leave the old stuff as it was?

Also no way to get rid of the Directional Scanner sound? WTF. Honestly didnt you guys learn from the "bong" issue. WHy do you all keep adding annoying repetitive sounds.

Remote add PLEX to vault - not working (as intended?)

All my inter-account PLEX trading just became a huge PITA!
Now I need one alt from each account to go to the trade hub and manually put the stupid PLEX I just traded to them in the stupid PLEX vault.

Price/PLEX is not really as much of an issue as having to spend more for the same thing. Now I'm forced to over purchase PLEX for 30 days game time. I'll have extra PLEX that will sit around and never get used that I had to pay extra for. Don't tell me to sell it for ISK because I need it for game time, you know, the reason why I bought it...

I've never heard of having to pay MORE for a 14 year old game than when it was released... And they say EVE players are the smartest player base. Laughable if this keeps up. What a bunch of dolts to keep paying into the greed monster. EVE, why can't I quit you dammit? Take my money...

If you are going to screw over our game like this, then please do something wise... Add an option for subscription secondary training. I will not keep going to the trade hub once a month to get my PLEX trades - period. I have to many alts to bother with that much time sink. I'd be tripping for 4 or 5 days of the month to get it all done just to do it again next month. - LAME -

ARE YOU F-ING KIDDING ME?

IF I WANT TO HEAR WORMHOLE STATUS I HAVE TO HEAR STATION SOUNDS???

edit - if you didn't know: the sound a wormhole makes once it is below it's 50% mass limit is different from the sound it makes above that. though it is always a good idea to "show info" on the wormhole to know what's going on with it, the sound is a quick indicator of its status. also STATION SOUNDS WILL MAKE YOU MAD.

Before this, if I bought 1 plex from CCP's homepage it cost me 19,99 Euro
If I buy 1 plex now from their homepage it cost me 19,99 euro.


You get 500 for that price, but it is 60 "free", so technically you pay for 440... which is less value than before. The only value you get is if you purchase the 99.99 option or higher now.

If you look at the previous plex / $ of multiple plex packages vs the new ones, you get less plex/$ now than before by quite a bit.

If you are buying plex with USD to convert to game time, you are wasting money. You should buy "game time" instead, much cheaper.

Just looked to see if things had changed... Nope. Still cannot buy "game time" for multi character training.
Player services for $19.95 is available, but that's more expensive than bulk purchasing PLEX - at a higher overall cost now. So the way I've been doing it is less expensive.

For 485 plex in the New Eden Store you can get a multi training certificate, which is cheaper than it used to be.

I like the new stars. But. There is a weird glitch with the animation when you warp away from a star. Not even my Prowler is that fast in warp.

I like the glowingeffect on the Prowler. The "new" Diplomatic shuttle too.

Its laggy again. Especially in stations and at jumpgates.

Why the heck did you dump down the soundsettings? It just makes no sense at all.

The PLEX-change was just stupid. Sorry, but its true. It messed the community up, it messed the market up and it will keep messing around for a fething looong time.....

And PLEASE do something about the client. Its not funny anymore when it is getting dysfunctional with every major patch....

Praise the Omnissiah!

The only acceptable solution so far... +1
BTW, activating this certificate is also the only way to see multi-character timers and apply to the correct character.

3 plex for training all 3 characters in one account, for 1 month (old prices): 19.95(1plex offer)+34.95(2x plex offer) = 54.90 per month
1 month game time + 2 plex for training all characters in one account, for 1 month (old prices): 14.95+34.95=49.90 per month

If you could by old plex in offer for 17.49 each:
36 plex for all 3 characters 12 months: 36x17.49 = 661
12months subscription time + 24plex (old prices) = 131.40 (12months) + 24*17.49=551.16

Sorry to inform you wasted 110 USD last year.

I was upset some weeks ago after the new exploration updates. The screaming loon in the background when the solar system map is enabled was driving me nuts. Someone wisely suggested I adjust the UI level on the advanced audio settings. I did, and it was tolerable.

NOW that option is eradicated. Does anyone at CCP play this game??!? Is the background dung/noise some kind of inside joke shoved down the throats of players who do a lot of exploration?

How can anyone justify this maddeningly annoying sound as a positive addition to the game??!!?

This is by far the worst patch ever. Please change the Probe/Directional scanners back. I love how every time i open the d-scan window it opens up a whole map window with it. How the hell do i open the dscan window without the map. I dont know who's in charge of making all these new horribly ****** changes to everything, but they need a new job. Thanks for once again ruining the game a lil more and more with each patch.

My wish list:

1) Fix the crashing bugs
2) Give me a better skill interface
3) Restore the aura voice and get rid of the login sound
4) Fire the person responsible for audio

A few quick questions... I had some left over Aurum (less than 1000) on a few accounts which I understood would be converted at a later date. I didn't think to write it down or take a screen grab of it, but the store shows zero PLEX (which would be true) and doesn't reference Aurum at all.

Is there a way to see how much I have/had?

Does CCP keep a record somewhere so they know how much should be converted at the later date?

Maybe I read the patch notes incorrectly, but are they still planning on converting the lower amounts of Aurum later?

Thanks in advance!
