How many accounts are you down to now?

I've still got my two accounts though it's been shaky as I've not agreed with a great deal of ccp's plans for eve. I miss the old eve as she was as unbalanced as she was beautiful, wild, chaotic, volatile and utterly stunning.

The watering Down, the dumbing down and the balancing has made eve into a shadow of its former self, I miss the old eve.

Dumbing down of Eve Online will result in it's destruction...

No they are not.
You , and few other players, will get more fun from killing/loosing 3 battleships rather than 1.

This game is about blowing ships for one group of people , and building new ones for other.
I never understated why CCP elevates ship prices so much.

Make all ships cost 1/3 of their current materials.

This will allow to loose 3 ships in the price of one.

The only thing that concerns me is how CCP encourages people to communicate poorly.

And real world inflation while interest rates go down. At this rate I'll have to get a job.

I am up two accounts from a month ago. People complaining about the price of PLEX are shortsighted. I can 'grind' $20 IRL in about an hour working an odd job on weekends. It makes a whole lot more sense for me to buy plex and sell it in game to make the ISK I want than it does to grind enough out in game to buy a plex.

Measure how hard it is to pay your subscription in hours spent (in or out of game), not by how much ISK a plex is. Ignore grinding out your PI for an hour and pick up a temp. job for an hour IRL. that will make you more ISK for an hour's work than in game will.

People complaining about plex prices usually have multiple alts that they plex. It's not as simple as you make it out to be, plus there's a lot of people that make more than enough money ingame to plex their subscription and have leftover isk for whatever they need and not have to work overtime on Sunday or some **** like that.

I do not know if it matters if non-paying accounts drop as much if paying accounts drop. Players may create content but I am pretty sure they don't create electricity to run the servers. Or maybe that was part of Crius. Maybe I should read the patch notes.

Never mix real life and inet spaceships. Inet spaceships isn't real.....no matter how many times you watch the "EvE is real" video...

Dumbing down is a universal problem across most of the gaming industry, it seems there is far more money to be made industry wide churning new players who come pay a heap of cash and then quit then can be garnered from trying to encourage a committed long term community. Dumbing down disenfranchises longterm players but keeps the new players churninng through.

As for balance, well it can be a good thing. Problem is CCP see balance as being the same thing as "make everything identical to everything else and remove all meaningful choice".


With regard to the original topic, its relatively simple to play EVE for fun and have left over ISK even after PLEXing. Aside from which PLEX dropped 2 weeks ago by 100 mill and have stabilised at the lower level and even show signs of dropping again.

What non-paying accounts? Trial accounts?

If you're talking about plexed accounts, I'm pretty sure that if they all (or just sizeable amount of them) were dropped, panic button at CCP headquarters would be pushed so hard that aussies would see a new hill forming.

3 accounts and I just give CCP some USD a month, it's a lot easier then crying and grinding endless hours and treating a video game like a RL job.

Unsubbed a couple accounts. Nothing to do with EVE dying though.

I'm really amused by how many so-called "industry vets," are claiming to have been hosed and closing accounts over crius. I added two accounts post-patch to meet demand and I'm looking at getting into more areas of production just for fun because I have the isk to burn. I guess people really didn't do their research this time around.
