How is CCP profiteering? People are simply being morons. There is nothing unethical about giving people the OPPORTUNITY to undock with plex. They aren't making you undock with 74 plex, they aren't making pirates shoot them, and plex have the same drop rate as every other item in eve. Nothing to see here, move along.

Yes. I would. Because I am a cold hearted bastard and support CCP in it's moron profiteering. Rolling Eyes Ok, so maybe I am a cold hearted bastard, but that's beside the point.

I think that every time a Titan is destroyed, CCP should give $3500 to a charity. WAIT WHAT? That doesn't make sense... and neither does giving money to charity when a plex dies.

I give full support to this idea. Just tonight I was made aware of some poor soul who lost 74 PLEX cards, destroyed. That's $1,000.00 US CCP pockets.... for nothing.

This isn't to say that CCP is ebil, they're not profiteering, but since that is pure profit it would be nice to see a % go to a world relief agency. Only for ones destroyed though as ones not still have their value in game time.

Great idea by the OP.

CCP, I wholeheartedly support this idea, and would even like to recommend, as suggested via an earlier voice chat with an alliance-mate, Child's Play as the most apropos charity to donate to.

Why support stupidity? Are you all that dumb that you can't make a Jita-alt and "redeem" the Plexs on that alt and sell them; then transfer the ISK to your main?

I mean, really...what possible reason could you have to transport Plexs. Plexs are roughly 300 -315million (some willing to pay 330mill) so it's not like you're 'Buying Low; Selling High'.

Treat Plexs like a Titan; you don't build a titan to build it for yourself or for the Corp.

In closing: DON'T BE STUPID

News flash: People are stupid.

I think a lot of the people supporting this idea think that perhaps, just perhaps, there should be some good to come of inevitable stupidity.

While i fully understand why people would prefer CCP to improve the game itself with that money, i support this idea as im a nice guy and doubt that CCP could hire even one more dev from it anyways. Afterall its not a very reliable income.

Screw charity, it enslaves people and keeps those on their knees who you're trying to help.

That your excuse for not donating?

Supporting this if it is a percentage of the profit from destroyed PLEXes.

Rest of profit should go to fixing the lag (moar blades!)

This is a great idea. I support this fully. It would

a) make the world a little better
b) make people feel less bad about losing money/gametime they had already paid for
c) make the pirate's pain a little less painfull when those 74 PLEX in his victim's ship go poof
d) Would be great publicity for CCP*

Thumbs up.

* Translation: "would make CCP look less like a bunch of greedy bastards not giving a rat's ass" Cool

Not supported

Are you ppl daft?

CCP has a set "goal" of money theyre trying to make- they do not exist to fund charities.

They are a for profit business.

You want to waste your own money on these scams (ie charities) then feel free to donate directly to them. Dont raise my monthly subscription fee so you can feel better about your pathetic wasted lives.

OH MY GOD. A for profit corporation, PROFITEERING!!?!!?? Damn what will they think of next? CCP's change to the PLEX system, like most good changes, forces absolutely no change whatsoever. If people wanted to, they could treat the new one exactly like the old one and never move PLEX, and thus none would ever be destroyed, just like before. If pilots choose to be stupid with them, well that's their call, same as if they are stupid with an expensive ship or deadspace/officer mod or whatever. There is zero difference, that's the entire point of the change after all, to make them items just like everything else!

This is a stupid thread. There are tiny amounts of money involved, and CCP should focus first and foremost on us, the customers paying for EVE! If at some point in the far future CCP has actually fixed most of the vast number of glaring problems in this game then sure, with the huge excess might make sense to offer a few targeted charity programs, maybe as part of competitions with the winners able to decide which charity(s) get the donations. As some basic policy thing though? Dumb. Particularly since we can't agree on which charities to go for anyway (I think the EFF would be a much better cause, for example, and would have more of a direct benefit to the game and all of us personally).

There are no "ethical implications" here at all. CCP's benefit to society is already clear: they make EVE, employ lots of people, etc. That's capitalism at its best. They don't generate tons of externalities like some other industries, an MMOG provider is about as clean as it gets.

Unlimited Thumbs Down Works.

As much as I think this is a good idea, I can't support it.

Plain and simple, there are alternative ways to afford PLEX (aka: ISK). I sit in a system and rat for countless hours and buy PLEX from the ISK I make, no real-world transaction done on my part. The person who originally bought the PLEX has already been paid in full for it (through ingame exchange). Any loss of the PLEX after that point is due to the purchaser's own stupidity and does not necessitate an actual real-world monentary loss.

I do like the idea of a constantly-running PLEX For Haiti like system, but otherwise its just Darwin's law being played out with internet pixels.

Not a fan of the red cross but I like the idea.
Maybe give charity to an organization without such a tainted record?
