Don't buy PLEX from market

The hysteria that comes from rapidly increasing PLEX prices causes people to go rapidly buy them before they go higher.

The speculators increase prices even more and create more hysteria.


It becomes a vicious cycle that increases the price of PLEX more and more.

If you don't want these high PLEXes, then you should abstain from buying them unless you absolutely need to.

Close an account or two temporarily or pay money for subscription.

The prices will naturally fall.

I want low PLEX prices so I can keep my accounts running without having to play more than a few hours per week (or spend RL money on a bad game such as EVE).

If getting prices to fall requires me to shut down my accounts, then these low prices have literally no value to me.

Why don't you close your accounts first so i can keep mine running at low cost?

Because I pay subscription, I don't need PLEX to run my accounts.


I have a job. What about you?

Whatever let the price of PLEXes rise, then we'll see.

I love the rising of the PLEX price, like it does every year towards winter.

No, you should buy a shitload of them now and then not care where the PLEX prices go as your subscription is good for the next few years.

Erm, then why do you care what plex prices are doing, if you aren't buying or selling? Isn't that a bit like complaining about the prices of officer mods going in either direction, when you refuse to fit them yourself, and aren't ratting in nullsec?

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse [lady of commercial virtue]. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.- James Nicoll

Pfft...I remember bartering for a 90 day GTC for 500 mil. Even less if I think further back. Now we pay more than that for 1/3rd the time and people go nuts when the prices go up by 100 mill for a couple weeks.

Sigh...bring back mines damnit...

Why do you think CCP hasnt nerfed FW payouts.

Players earning billions of isk through FW are buying up plexes for new accounts. Okay they are paying for these new accounts from the earnings of FW but when CCP decides to nerf that income all these new accounts will have to be paid for either by plex or RL money. How many pilots are going to grind that isk for plexes or pay RL sub for these accounts (not many). I see alot of character sales to their main accounts and alot of accounts being closed but the revenue generated from this will be great for CCP.


TLDR: Keeping doing FW so CCP execs can afford the new house in Palm Beach or just dont create new accounts and rathole that isk.

Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.

I might care about this if you could be more specific about which puppy they're kicking?

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.
