Actually in context to what this thread is about, it is GOOD that plex prices are so high. It gives a good return for those willing to legally RMT $$ > ISK.


Did you seriously just suggest that there's a legal way to break the law?

Seriously?


No, they just misunderstood what RMT is.

Which law is that?

For the moment, CCP's priority is to help RMTers get back on the straight and narrow. The presentation at Fanfest indicated that most RMT happens with players that are days to a couple of months into the game, who are looking for a quick financial boost. This is why I offer my Buddy Invitees the PLEX reward that I get from them subscribing. I'd love to have some word from CCP about whether giving them a lot of ISK up-front works as a preventative measure, but I'll happily cruise on in ignorance for the meantime.

I find keeping the PLEX for yourself and helping the newbro acquire ingame assets worth a similar amount works even better. More fun for him and you both, and he has even more incentive to engage in the various aspects of the ISK acquisition game.

Now you are at it, if you are not in a PvP focused alliance then consider bringing him to Burn Jita to teach him how to catch (CFC) pods and/or help him get started participating in the mass tests on SiSi for some (r)ISK free PvP etc. Important to prevent people falling into the endless ISK farming trap.

OK, drifting OT here, so I better stop while the going is good. Big smile

Have you Communicated with your fellow capsuleers today? It is good for the EvE-oconomy and o-kay for you.

Would be nice if PLEX wasn't 723 million. People right now are just going to pay for subs because the prices are ridiculously high. Of those who find "plexing" too daunting a prospect, a good portion are just going to go inactive. Straight


Eve is 15 bucks a month, less if you pay for a year.
If you have trouble paying *roughly* 15 bucks a month (0.50 cts a day) for your favorite game then you have bigger problems then the price of PLEX.







Admit it, your mom lets you use her credit card, right? You might even live in her basement? I mean, you don't appear to understand real life, and the need to have a place to live or to eat aren't really problems at all.


Or some people just have well paid jobs and can afford all those things while still able to buy a new car every half a year.
An average software engineer gets 5000€ a month. YOu dont have to leave on your moms basement.

As a player who buys PLEX with real money and sells it for ingame currency the high PLEX price is good for me because it makes it profitable to do.

I like crazy plans
