You realise this has nothing to do with CCP right? Plex prices are set by the free market.

Not entirely factual. CCP do intervene with PLEX, and in fact did in April I believe to slow their increase.

they don't intervene because of price, they intervene because of price change. which are two very different things.

Would be great if CCP introduced secure tokens for logins.

Whilst this would not stop botting / RMT all together, it would make it a lot more difficult to create untraceable account after untraceable account.

Has anybody actually noticed what he says?


*Snip* Please refrain from personal attacks. ISD Ezwal.



Of course people will pay for the sub. Why wouldn't they?
I am paying for my sub! And why wouldn't I?

I can afford ten accounts every month easily,
without breaking a single sweat ... all with real money!

I have no need to waste my ISK for PLEX.
I save a ridiculous amount of time by paying for my sub,
instead of wasting ISK for PLEX!


Without people paying for the subs and buying PLEX from CCP, (or legal resellers)
people like you couldn't even play this game!


And the worst of you people are those who say that,
if they couldn't PLEX their accounts,
they wouldn't play,
because the game's not worth it!

*Snip* Please refrain from using profanity. ISD Ezwal.

Some people are no actual loss!

Good riddance!

If you want cheaper PLEX then you should support the GM team's campaign against botters and RMTers. Every player that buys ISK from an RMT site is one that doesn't buy a PLEX from CCP to sell for ISK, thus reducing PLEX supply and increasing PLEX prices.

RMTers are literally stealing from you.


Burn them out.

Form a Union, refuse collectively to buy the 'overpriced' PLEX and they should come down in price.

Good luck with that Smile

Counterintuitively, we buy ISK. We do it to track, find and terminate RMT operations. Buying ISK for this purpose is in our budget as good return of investment in the fight against RMT.

Crafty as they are, they have a weakness. It's money. They do anything to get it. Account hacking, credit card fraud, exploits and botting is all part of THEIR game. However, protecting our players from violations of the EULA and more serious offenses is OUR game, and we have the team to do it.

Sadly, some buyers may be affected when ISK originating from such sources is confiscated and bans issued. However, our EULA is also clear that players should not buy outside of EVE or CCP. We regret all damages caused by RMT and will never tire of telling people about PLEX and how it may be purchased on our website and through our official retail partners, listed here. Or that PLEX can then be sold via the in-game for ISK. Heaps of ISK!

Now, thar's something ye might want to try at home.

This leaves only one question...

Who will WE be buying from this week?


Hmmm ... whose credit card do you use? I hope it comes with a condom...

Officially this entire thread is against the forum rules, but oh well, even I know my place...Smile

Still, I have removed some rule breaking posts and those quoting them. As always I let some edge cases stay.
Please people, keep it on topic and above all civil!

The Rules:
4. Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts that are designed to personally berate or insult another forum user. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community spirit that CCP promote and as such they will not be tolerated.


5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.


26. Off-topic posting is prohibited.

Off-topic posting is permitted within reason, as sometimes a single comment may color or lighten the tone of discussion. However, excessive posting of off-topic remarks in an attempt to derail a thread may result in the thread being locked, or a forum warning being issued.

The whole thread is against the forum rules why? I don't thing Grimmi wrote anything that related to the rules you listed
