The reason PLEX prices are so high is because of macro miners. These macro using players buy hundreds or maybe thousands of PLEX and make the prices go sky high. Some of you players may not care about macro users but I bet you care about the high price of PLEX when you want to buy one.


Your logic is quite brilliant, i mean the macro miners clearly spend more isk on plex than they sell to people who would otherwise buy plex. Clearly macros put plex prices up rather than down, and you are not at all an idiot.

Macros create the larger demand, wich is pushing the price upwards.



No they don't, enough people buying isk from macros would instead buy it through plex - that would increase demand and push the price up. RMT is actually a downward pressure on plex prices as it cuts demand.

lol. If you can't buy isk by rmt you need to buy plex for cash and then sell the plex for isk.
killing rmt wouldn't cut demand it would increase supply.

why do people moan about GTC costs in terms of ISK,
when it costs people real money for GTCs and Plex in the first place

if you dont like the price do what the rest of us do,
pay with money for GTCs or if you dont have money
do what the rest of us do get a JOB

RMT ISK accounts are a large part of it tho. Iirc PLEX prices dropped significantly after Unholy Rage removed all these accounts.


Thank you for pointing that out Very Happy

The real reason PLEX prices are high is that the real money demand for them is so low due to the fact that rmt prices are always lower than the price for a PLEX. The harder it is to macro, the more demand for isk will be supplied by PLEX's. I suggest CCP postpone Incarna one last time (unless planning to inact anti-botting game mechanics with Incarna) in order to rid ourselves of these botters. The demand for isk won't ever go away, but the supply from botters can Twisted Evil

Death of botters= lower PLEX price for everyone YARRRR!!

I think I wanna start a corp named "The PLEX is to damn HIGH", but I'd have to grow a beard and wear gloves. If elected, I can promise every capsuleer Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

I wonder if making PLEX transportable had a small effect on this.

Mostly this.

Next to that they're not that high, when I saw a RMT advertizement in the rookie channel you could still get more ISK for your money. :p

And I doubt that the PLEX sellers are so unhappy about the prices atm. I mean: who would spend $15 for just 50mil ISK?
