If PLEX reaches 1bil per unit, will you still pay?

If you're the type who likes doing incursions or missions or trading or mining/industry, then when Plex costs 1B, you'll be making more too (might not be proportional, but it will increase). And since it's what you like to do, it will be no biggie if you have to do a little bit more.
But if you hate doing these things and only do them in order to pay for your PVP lifestyle, then you'll be sad and will either pony up the $real or leave the game.
Can I have your stuff?

Lol if PLEX reaches 1 billion ISK/unit it will be the same as it is now, except everything will be inflated. So depending on your source of income, you should have twice the amount of ISK anyway. So why would you quit playing?

Sure, I'll pay $35 for a GTC I can redeem for two plex to sell.

Provided I suddenly have a need for another 2B ISK, that is.

It depends on the purchasing power of a bil for me. If a bil is still enough for a carrier I'd probably be inclined to pay for my sub in cash. If carriers are going for 2 bil due to inflation I should be making proportionately more on my own so it's a wash and I'd play on billion isk PLEX, yes. Big smile

all prices are relative, if plex is 1bn, then the stuff I sell will be appreciably more to cover it, but thanks for asking.

I can pay anything asked for a plex and the reason they are so high is that me and all the other incursion runners are raising the price of PLEX just for the lols.

Problem?

Maybe. Eve has some serious imbalances.

It's not an ingame imbalance as such. If demand outstrips supply then the price goes up.

Seems people are moaning about incursions because it seems more people can buy PLEX with ISK to fund their accounts than before incursions were introduced.

All these outrageous figures of Isk here is madness.

I run incursions, I do them with 1 character only. I know the maximum isk per hour in a Battleship fleet. Legion fleets can make more in truth by skipping OTAs and doing 3 minute blinks.

You are talking out of your ar$e and you know it =D. Your saying you make 25 million isk per minute?

Unless your running 6 characters, your a liar! I don't think your running 6 charcters so your a liar =D

So you'll agree that you can make 150m ISK an hour then. Because that is what I made doing them and that 150m doesn't include LP's.

Assuming even if everyone is interceptors, you cannot initiate and land from warp 50 times + 50 gates (100 total warps) within the span of 10 minutes. Much less complete even a single site in less that 2 minutes due to the spawning mechanics.


I call shenanigans.


No, really, we do it easily.
Guess I should spill the beans, since I won't be able to run Incursions much anymore due to RL, and all my Incursion buddies are now worth a minimum of 10 Trillion each.

See, it was a well-kept secret that CCP got so pissed of with all the whiny brats who blamed the intelligent Incursion runners (the ones who optimized their fleet composition and demanded excellence from their pilots) for everything that was wrong with the game, that CCP handed the well run Incursion fleets Jovian technology ships.

I personally fly an Jovian Inty that aligns in 0.1 seconds, warps at 60 AU/sec, has a tank of 100K and does 1000 DPS at 100km.
But CCP made us promise to only use them in high sec Vanguard Incursions, and keep quiet about them.

But because I am the prototypical Incursion runner (you know, the sociopathic, greedy, elitist type), I am spilling the beans and spoiling it for all that still use the Jovian ships. I expect CCP will be removing mine from my hangar once they read this post.

In fact, I feel so guilty about it, I think that CCP should remove all ISK-based payouts from Incursions, so they become a total cash sink.
I am also going to give away my 20 Trillion that I have made from Incursions in the past year. Just send me any amount over 1 million as a gesture of good faith, and I will send you 10 times the amount back.

i would just let one of my accounts go inactive. No way am i spending 4 bil for plex. I would have to actually do incursions. F that.

I have more space likes than you.

I stopped at 400M. At that point it became a pain in the ass (anti-fun) to acquire that per month and 15 bucks is a better trade off.

Can't wait to dual box my Dust toon and EVE toon on the same machine!

no. but thats not gonna be a revelation to anyone ..

I'd say I have more or less reached the max I will pay: 500m.

any more would require me to grind more than I pvp, which is not gonna happen. period.

obv I dumped a few accounts when they destroyed pi as a viable independant enterprise.

but since I no longer have the 2bn + a month coming in from that and incursions are horrible, not sure if anoms will cut it much longer tbh.

Considering the fact RL subs in the UK are about to come down in price. If PLEX hit 1bil per, I'd probably swap to cash.

When your gut instincts tell you something is wrong, trust them. When your heart tells you something is right, ignore it, check with your brain first. Accept nothing, challenge everything.
