wtf does this have to do with mac support?

I use MAC and have no idea what this could possibly do to my gameplay

So, you're a bounty hunter. No, that ain't it at all. Then what are you? I'm a bounty hunter.

This is possibly the best news ever.

Dear ISBoxers, I look forward to buying some of your surplus alts.

Might start PLEXing my accounts again if the price goes down like I anticipate.

As a fan of replicator, I'm genuienely saddened by this :(
I think it's pretty easy to figure out who pushed forward this change as replicator's bombers caused more Goon losses than entire 0.0 alliances
But I still think CCP shot themselves in a foot with this decision as it will cause a big drop in active subsciptions


Funny. Players were complaining about automated multiboxers (ISBox) is highsec when the ISBoxers would clean out all the belts in many highsec systems, and none of those miners were Goons. FYI, replicator got tired on the nonsense and joined us. So much for the usual GRR GONS argument.

So long, and thanks for all the isk.

well thats 22 accounts unsubbed time to head ot highsec


I doubt you paid in cash for those accounts. instead you bought 22 plex. Those 22 plex are now on the market, adding to the overall supply. Higher supply, less demand means a drop in price for Plex.

So 22 accounts that could not buy plexs at 1 bil can resubscribe when prices hit 750 mil maybe. No net loss in accounts.

Plus, as Plex prices drop, people will have to pay more cash to CCP to equal the same isk value.

Seems like a win for CCP and for the indivuals as a whole over the 1%er ISBoxers.

They have paid for subscription time, and been given that time. CCP was under no obligation to 'garauntee' to customers that their intentions for the characters use would still be applicable in the future. CCP didn't explicitely state that my training for a sentry drone Dominix for PVP last year would be a garaunteed OK and my 'playstyle' wouldn't get nerfed.

These characters could all be retrained into market alts, scouts, fleet boosters, or heavens forbid the ISboxers could just manually operate them, but no. Instead they demand a refund when they have recieved exactly what CCP promised them. A set amount of time to play in the sandbox. Please take your entitled attitude elsewhere.



35 days notice on 180degree turnaround on their own policy is not okay

It's downright extortion

Example:

If you pay me money to go to theme park for a specific ride, you like the rollercoasters cause of the pretty lights n stuff
I say of course you may enter, I have a policy that dictates how I must behave and such, what you want to do is legal and hundreds of other people have been doing it for years
You grin, pay over your moneyzzzz and enter
3 feet in Miley comes in like a wrecking ball and bye bye the rollercoasters
Sad right?

No one cares if you unsub. We will always be here because there is no other MMO like EVE.

To all the ISBoxers who are quitting EVE:

Mind contracting me your assets (preferably in highsec, so I don't get ganked hauling in lowsec) or just sending me your ISK? I promise that I'll whisper your name as I am exploded in the ships I buy from selling off your assets.

Cheers!

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Titans on fire outside "The Alamo" of NOL-M9. I watched massive Super Capital fleets glitter in the dark near the BKG-Q2 gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...  Time to die.

brb, buying ice and selling my plex

Edit:

I would suggest that you guys send out an email to anyone that would have been banned in the next two weeks


I suggest you stop playing now. I'm not even going to ask for your stuff, as it will be better for the game in general for you to just stop logging in now. Have fun playing WoW and WoT with all the other ISBoxer pubbies who can only play by single-handedly blobbing everything they do.

No one here will miss you, since you probably never actually fleeted with another player in any meaningful way anyway, and that makes more PLEX for us. Smile

CCP reserve the right to change the terms. You agreed to that when you agree do pay, therefore you agree to this, particular change. You can't go back and say that you forgot to read the contract you signed.

Hrm so Mining goods are about to sky rocket. Ok so I have never used one of these things you speak of but even I after over 10 years in the game know that this is a terrible idea. So when you are making decisions did you consult an accountant? You realize that you are prob going to reduce CCP income about 3M a year just from logins who will drop accounts that are used for that sort of thing ? Ok not to tell you guys how to run a company but just flying around for so many years and knowing persons who use that.. At least 5% of eve is just miners on isboxer. Good luck on driving into a brick wall or whatever you dudes do.. Phobe great idea. this.. I would consult an accountant.

Adapt.

Or.

Die.

The door is over there. ->


You didn't adapt, *Snip* Please refrain from personal attacks. ISD Ezwal.
Anti-multi-boxers are all the same, they see something they can't or won't do, so it must be stopped. I really excepted a much more mature community in EvE but reading this thread reminds me of the WoW forums. Enjoy your shrinking community Ancy, you earned!





When you ISBox more accounts than you could ever play by individually controlling your characters, you are actually paying for ISBox to play EVE. Why pay for a program (that doesn't actually care) to play games? Play them yourself. What a novel idea.

So long, and thanks for all the isk.

Was rather disheartened by this news i had rather fuzzy idea's about running 2 guardians via isboxer some time in the future.

But...
This will make mining worth doing again.
And the best dps from bombers will take the best co-ordination. Those groups that shine will do the big dps and those that are subpar will do subpar dps.

All in all this is one less way that players can break the game.
