Had excess ISK this month so through a couple of PLEX at multi-training some alts that could use a few more skills.

PLEX price is not an issue.

I had three one month ago, two now (main unsubbed) and zero in less than thirty days. The problem (for me) isnĀ“t plex prices. Industry changes and the constant steps towards a less "non consensual" pvp environment are.

Most of the activities I used to enjoy in 2009 are know dissapeared, nerfed or completly ruined and I'm tired of "dodging" patches in the search for fun.

I will come back, but not soon, there are many interesting games to come in the next year.

dropping them all I think, games just gone to the sh*tter and ccp top men don't care, so why should I, as others said there is much better out there now

quicker they get rid of hilmar the better, heck just sell the game to people who care.

Since the ICE nerf and PLEX 800mil prices I'm down to 3 accounts. Might drop to 2.

How many accounts are you down to now?

Discuss

This question seems oddly familiar.
But I am down to 2 accounts.
Between me and my RL friend we have dropped 5 accounts.

Eve is a love / hate thing....

I quit two accounts completely a couple months ago and gave all my stuff away, even deleted the toons.... was just going to wait for SC and do other games, but like so many Short Attention Span - Space Lovers.... I got bored waiting and playing SWTOR.

Only to get interested again in EVE a few days ago, so signed up just one account just to mess around with the GILA and start over from nothing.

I'm sure I'll get bored and quit again by the time my 6 months are up...... This game changes so little for Mission Runners, it's only a short window of happiness in the beginning.... sort of like buying a boat...


I truly don't think it's a money thing for most everyone, it's more an interest... at one time years ago, I had 12 accounts mining ICE because it was interesting to multibox...

I wish I could get interested in PVP

I would REALLY like to see CCP have the stones to stand up and state clearly how many subs have lapsed in the past 3 months, then compare that to any other 3 month period in the game.

But given that they were terrified to release the data that allowed us to calculate subs after the latest CSM "election", I know there is zero chance for that to happen.

I've only been playing for a little over a year, and my account was expired for several months of that time. I don't have a whole lot of play time so my isk generation is too low to buy plex. If I did have more time to make a 2nd account worthwhile, I'd like to run an alt with a totally different skillset and see what other parts of the game look like. But I don't see that realistically happening so I'll just stick with my one lone account for now.

Unfortunately I used the Amazon deals to sub my accounts a year at a time so I won't be able to drop any until next year. Ugh I'm seriously considering dropping down to 2 accounts.

Down from 3 to 2 now.
That was just because I didn't have real use for 3rd one.

Industry account lapses within 20 or so days and that may go too.

But I may take that back in use later when things has settled down
after this expansion.

Every MMO I've played people complain all over the forums after every patch how fail it is and threaten to quit, and a month later, they're still playing. I doubt CCP will give two ***** over bluster on the forums. What will get their attention is if a month from now they have a net loss of a couple thousand subscribers...I mean actual subscribers, not people PLEXing accounts.

Don't get me wrong...I hate this update. I know there was quite a bit of feedback *before* the update in S&I that the costs under the new system were ridiculous. My industrial alt just spent close to 100M to start research jobs on his own stinkin POS. He then went to start a manufacturing job that in the past would have cost about 11,000 ISK in a NPC station and it would now have cost over 2,000,000 if I had accepted it. I'm not sure why anyone would have a high sec POS anymore. I don't think the fuel costs and risking your stuff will be worth it.

I think I'll drop my industrial alt account when the sub is up....so... -1 accounts here.

up and down accounts, 5 gone down to 4 atm,

next sub is due september, not going to resub, 140 mil sp or so
the other three are subbed til next year including one that I just paid a years sub for, so stuck til end of june 2015

losing interest mainly due to the hello kitty approach to making things 'easier',

crius is just the icing on the cake of ineptitude

as to the 'can I haz ur stuff', would you really indy stuff nowadays ?

and now for some more of the same from the Constructive Feedback Consortium.

Yeah, I almost fell over when I tried to research a Chimera for 3 runs and it was 5b plus in a hisec station... I could have kept a large POS alive for much longer with several research modules. I would be interested to know what the equivalent cost would be in a low or null POS...

3 billion left in liquid ISK for my 3 accounts and 4 characters in training.

After that I'll start selling off stuff to keep training.

Whatever it takes to not have to log in and undock.

EVE is yawn-mode right now.

I know I know, nobody cares, cry more etc, but I've just gone from 1 to 0. On the cancel page I put this message:

"After over nine loyal years, Crius has finally done it for me. I'm a solo industrialist who tries to make a cheeky profit here and there - for fun, in my spare time - and this latest update with its hideous industry window/UI and incomprehensible 'teams' mechanic (yes, I've read all the dev blogs) is going to kill off all my remaining interest. I can tell that after just a few minutes of staring at it blankly like a cow at Glastonbury.
Trying to force co-operation on people who consider the second M of MMO to represent a shared universe rather than shared play is an interesting way to move forward. Still, thanks for everything, and good luck. It's been a great game."

Done with it. If they ever fix exploration to be about actual exploration of systems or unique hidden objects I may come back, but until then I'll wait for the Elite: Dangerous beta and spend even more time in the pub.

Starting to wonder if thats not the best way to go but I've really gotten accustomed to a third for offgrid boosting. I went as high as 5 at one point. Wasted some time there.....

If PLEX wasnt so dang high this wouldnt even be an issue..... PI used to almost cover the accounts.... not so much anymore.



Translated :'' OMG MY PASSIVE INCOME doesn't fully support plex anymore , outrageous '''



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.



I considered pi to support four accounts. Then I realized that I didn't want to manage 72 planets. Sounds miserable.

My max number of accounts is 6.

Four are inactive.

Five will be after December (paid sub).

Six inactive accounts in January (plexed).

Unless... unless... I decide otherwise. Big smile

I've been playing this game for over 6 years now. I created a 2nd account after 2 years of playing, closed it 9 months later and just kept this one active. For the past year or so I've mainly been playing Skill Queue Online. I do a little exploration whenever I log in to update skill training and also play for extended periods of time every 3 months to run the Epic Arcs.

Other than that, I'm just waiting to see what happens to Eve. If some interesting content does get added then I'll definitely log in more game time. Until then, the only way I'll completely stop playing this game is if the Eve Servers get shut down. Now if that does happen, at least I'll be able to say 'I was there'.

8 accs - paid for mainly by Plex, except when I derp. Don't abuse the plex-for-hours thing by accident Roll

I might sell off the tertiary alts I used to use for heavy indy but that would require some buffing either via MC or switching off mains and I can't be arsed doing either atm. Crius tweaks my interest after a lengthy hiatus from indy, but I'm not all that fussed rushing into it. Grinding is horriable, and heavy indy can be as bad as any of the other 'second-job' professions if you misjudge your market.

Not dropping any of em atm. I've taken breaks, but I'll be here when they shut down the server if I can P
