Buy plex with irl money, sell plex for isk, buy citadel, buy titan.

P2W? How does someone win EVE and why is always someone assuming he needs the "big stuff" to play EVE?

P2W not really because of PLEX - but PLEX definitely helps-, but rather because you NEED at least a secondary account if you want to get out of highsec. The more you have, the more computer gear you have to run them comfortably, the better you can perform ingame: P2W

In terms of the total purchased since PLEX was introduced, no we don't know the exact number. It would be in the tens of millions of dollars.


A tiny tiny part of CCP's profit of course!

I believe the popularity of that bag of misconceptions is an important pillar of New Eden's economy.

Jeez. I have no alt and I'm doing just fine in lowsec. Maybe you should consider being more creative with how you make money and how you operate daily.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

You can either have time, dedication and freinds or just buy big stuff with PLEXes. First option will be much fun and maybe some drama. Second option will make you a loot pinata and you will get only drama. So to speak there is no Pay to Win in EVE, only "pay to feel mighty for a short time and then feel foolish and humiliated shorty thereafter" Because buying a Titan or Citadel without proper player skill and support will only get you a big lossmail.

You forgot: have Fun ingame but no time for ISK grinding. But buying A Titans with RL is just stupid. one error and 2000 Dollars gone.

There are many people who think you can't do well at the game without a second account. As a single account holder of almost five years now myself, I postulate they just don't know how to make friends.

What? Screwing around in null-sec and WH space is easy. You won't be able to live in Null solo, but then that was never the idea in the first place.

Not true. Just time. Which is a good idea to think about how you will use and protect such things beforehand. However, you can buy PLEX to convert to isk though and speed all sorts of things along. You can speed yourself right into incompetence as well.

When you combine deep pockets, unbridled enthusiasm and incompetence in Eve there's no end to what amazing stuff you can lose.



That concludes this thread rather nicely!
