If you don't like PLEX prices, pay with real money.

A very simple and elegant solution for the gainfully employed.

When PLEX is at 3 bil ea... I'll probably buy some GTCs.

A few observations:

Paying for an account with cash costs $12 to $13 a month. A PLEX costs $17.50. Every account CCP can get switched to being funded via the PLEX market is more money for CCP.


As little as $11/mo if you pay on the 12-month plan.

PLEX is brilliant for a few reasons:

- It brings in more money for 30 days of game-play over the regular subscription fee (at the downside of a bit more account churn).

- It gives a legal avenue for those who wish to trade RL money for ISK, which takes some of the wind out of the RMT seller's sails.

- People can consume the PLEX to run alt-accounts without having to pony up RL cash. (CCP still gets paid, just not by the account holder who is paying for the account.)

I am saying - Stop allowing ingame PLEX to be used to pay for Subs. Those extra, "free" accounts just generate more ISK, way more than the incoming real money spent to buy PLEX. There's your equations Sirs, think it through.

You sub (x) accounts by using ingame ISK to by ingame PLEX.
Those (x) account generate even more ISK
There's your ISK flood, blame that, stop trying to allocate blame on mission runners/incursions etc.
The fact is that ISK should not be able to buy ingame PLEX.
Will that upset people Hell yes it will.
Will accounts "unsubscribe" Hell yes they will - Unpaying accounts.
Most of you who are playing for more than a year do not even pay real cash to play Eve. You think this is cool and it is right - It is not cool nor right, you are undermining CCP, the very company struggling finacially, the company who run this game.

Stop the ISK faucet ? Easy, disallow the subbing of accounts using ingame PLEX. This will force those who want to play, to pay. All those thousands of free accounts that are ingame generating trillions of ISK can go away over time, because they are just using easily-earned ISK to buy ingame PLEX.

PLEX prices should be 10x their current amount in ISK - discourage all those free accounts churning out more ISK.

If your having a hard time paying, find a better way of making isk, if you want to play without pay, the make playing a full time job or look at long term isk income, rather then short. If you mission, bookmark the wrecks and warp back with a salvage destroyer or something. tah dah, more isk (this also works for anoms)

1 account == 1 plex.
12 accounts paid for either by each account or 1 uber account still == 12 plex. It doesnt matter that that 1 person has 12 accounts all generating a ton of ISK or not what matters is 12 plex were still bought and used to pay for those accounts.

ISK = time not real currency generated and lost by CCP. Now even 1 uber guy with 12 accounts making hand over fist in money by himself or botting still means 12 plex bought. If he can buy more plex than need for said 12 accounts it's still a win because more were bought/sold.

To the OP if you can't afford plex then sub like everyone has to... T.S
