Before people freak out. The API will NEVER reveal anything related to account financial. The ONLY thing you can gain related is the amount of time before the sub expires. Which is useless anyway.

Even then I am with chibbra and starting to horde all the food stamps and old buffalo nickel coins I can.


their tools would be better package deals for PLEX, simple economics. more PLEX offered per purchase keeps the volume of PLEX high so that these inflated PLEX prices would never actually be realized.

CCP artificially lowering plex prices is not a good thing

Description
The Account Status API returns basic account information including when the subscription lapses, total times logged on and date of account creation. In the case of accounts created with Game Time Codes (GTC), it will also looks for available offers of time codes.

i agree but if prices reached 1b per plex, you would see like you do now $100 for 6 but they would likely offer $100 for 8. I'm all for PLEX reaching 1B, because i would buy more PLEX with RL cash Big smile

I call it as I see it. You've shown a massive lack of reasoning and you've concocted two wild conspiracy theories based on a set of vcode requirements.

What's the point of jacking the PLEX prices up if we're forced to pay with PLEX? Goonswarm wishes to force its members to give more ISK per PLEX to huge nerds with credit cards?

Higher plex prices cut into the profits of RMT'ers also forces scrub noobs running incursions to work harder

You can't supply crunch PLEX therefore any possible Goonrush is useless. If it gets high enough, people will just buy more PLEX.

Since they can also see what assets members have they would also be able to tell who is stock piling......


and when they have made enough isk jacking prices up they will crash market and start the whole cycle over again...

Nobody makes ISK if we're forced to spend 800m ISK on PLEXes every month.

Anyhow, tinfoil.
