Try doing PI on a massive scale then come back and tell me how "afk" it is. Your argument is invalid and not even close to being on topic.



You do know what AFK stands for ?AWAY FROM KEYBOARD , or are you telling me that your planets somehow only produce when you are actively online unlike all the other PI that is done?

Do you know that doing isn't spelled dping? You make my PI seem like it takes no effort.... guess what sunshine.... try it on just 3 characters and find out for yourself just how much effort it doesn't require.


Not even close to being on topic..... looks like all you want to do is try to attack my posts....

Evidently you don't do PI on over 50 Planets.... Anything but passive....pretty much a clickfest. According to you, anything outside ratting must be passive isk. Incorrect.




Passive isk to me is when you gain isk/assets while not actually playing the game.A miner usually is mentioned for this as they can be semi or fully afk .But it also involves other means of income , like PI .The old way of letting your drones handle a mission whilest watching a movie for example could also be seen as passive income.We're not talking FREE isk we are talking passive isk so yes you stiill need to invest some time to do so and if you choose the one wich needed a 50 planet clickfest then i'd say you choose the wrong passive income.

I gathered my income over the last years mostly from investments/trade/research , all of wich are completely passive to semi passive if you do it in the way i did.I don't have anything against people gaining passive income , i do have something against people complaining about their passive income not being sufficient enough.




Your opinion... I do not share it. Wall of text not on topic either...

To be totally honest, I'm thinking on dropping 3 accounts I'm paying with PLEX and start paying with subscription.

These 3 accounts are all very old and all 9 characters on them are very specialized in several fields and I keep changing between them to have my share of fun.

But the main reason I would start to pay, again, the subscription, is not the PLEX prices as I can make that with easy, but because I've been playing other MMOs out there, some with subscription, that I could not have the same fun I have here, not to talk the customer services and public relations of that other companies are really lame compared with CCP.

CCP is not perfect, they have plenty to improve but, IMHO, there is nothing better in the market right now. And the game, well, I love it.

Fly safe.

I have one account. And I've only ever had one account. Why would I need more?

From an initial overlord amount of 23 accounts, i have dropped down to 4 active accounts, and will likely be dropping to 3 after tomorrow.

We have had two accounts for ages and haven't dropped any accounts or taken any on. I am a little worried as to what will happen to the game post-Crius with all the industry changes which don't really seem necessary. I would have rather seen the corporation roles & permissions fixed first and then multiple user corporation assets secure POS use before the stuff being implemented tomorrow. But I'm not in charge. Smile

Regarding 'EVE is dying' type comments I think the jury is still out on that one and I won't be surprised to see a increase in online figures. The recent graph on the Mittani site was interesting and did show a worrying steady decrease in players online in New Eden. Certainly in the UK we are having nice weather in July for change when in numerous preceding years the weather has been foul. So I think a lot of people will have grabbed the opportunity to get out and soak up some rays and watch girls or boys go by.Blink

There has been other stuff as well like the World Cup, Commonwealth games soon and other sport type stuff not that I care for such things. I think we have try and remain optimistic that things in-game will work out in the end. So much in RL is going down the toilet atm and we need somewhere to go to get away from all that ****. Sad

PS We pay for our accounts via yearly subscription. It's pretty cheap that way.

The only way I could reduce the number of accounts I have is to leave the game again (I just came back, don't rush me).

I'm one of the oddballs who has only, ever, played a single account.

I have 5 accounts

I have had five accounts for about 5 years. Occasionally I let one lapse if I don't need them for anything, but I usually end up resubbing after a while. Sometimes I let them all lapse if I just need a break from Eve - so far however, I have always returned with the same five accounts.

If the update means less zombie mining alts and more real people to interact with them i'm all for that kind of updates. It's a MMO and solo multiboxing play shouldn't be encouraged.

When they did the ice changes I dropped 7 accounts, 6 miners and 1 booster as I dont use him nearly enough to justify the account its on.

With Crius Im dropping my towers so I could get rid of up to 3 accounts but still undecided.

Still have 4 accounts paid by CC and 5 plexed accounts atm out of a total of 22 accounts.

For me its ebb and flow of the game and taking advantage of situations where more or less accounts are optimal for what I do in game or want to do in the future. A lot of my in game friends are taking breaks or unsubbing entirely due to the changes though.

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

It's a comment on a statement you made in this thread so stop derailing your own thread Roll.

You made this post just to hear more people complain about the price of PLEX, but then some people like me are a bit smarter in aquiring passive isk then doing 50 PI plantes and others grind their isk while being online wich tends to bring in a better amount of isk as it should be or they are just greatfull for any passive isk and don't complain about it on the forums
But then calling a 6 sentence reply a ''wall of text'' shows how much your brain can handle before it goes blank.

It's called general discussion not general agreement for a reason , if you can't handle a vicil discussion then i suggest not starting a complainthread would be a good idea.

Now put those fingers back in your ears again and reply with a general ''nananannanaaaaa i can't hear you ..''

+1

I also now buy PLEX to convert to ISK, as the cost of not being a peasant is that I have less time to waste making ISK.

So, bring on the higher PLEX prices. it increases the value of my real money, and I am much more interested in the value of real money,then the value of fake money.


TL;DR, you are thinking about money all wrong.
