I agree, great initiative.

I had to pester a GM this january because of this and about 2 weeks ago an old aquaintance of mine did the same, except in his case for 3 accounts.

Not that either of us really needed the free 1-day (given to reactivate), but neither of us had parked PLEX in reverse redeem for ramping up our activities again.
In both cases we were not even aware of the feature - I only learned of it by being lectured by the GM about being more careful and remembering to use that instead.

Well all i can say to his .. is that it was about DAMN TIME for a feature like this to take the 1day request. Nice work Laughing

This is a very nice surprise, CCP. It's a small and simple feature but a huge win for the players. I bet your customer support guys will appreciate this as well! Thank you so much. Cool

Originally by: Renan Ruivo
Will the 4 hours be deducted from the added game-time once the account is re-activated? If not, it should be. This would keep people from abusing the system, and creating more trouble for GM's.

Make it so it only works every 30 days, instead of working after the account is deactivated. If a guy uses these 4 hours every month, at the end of one year he'll find 2 days less on whichever subscription plan he then activates.

guy's got a point, listen to this man CCP :P

I don't use plex's myself but I certainly dont see any downside to this.
And from ccp's standpoint plex users are the more lucrative player if you look at the dollar\day cost of subs.

Not the one who use plex to play, but the one who bought the plex and sold for isk has paid 2.5 $ more for those 30 days than a standard sub costs.

I'm not at all saying not to use plex's, hell with this feature I might let one or two accounts just run long and swap myself but since you are the 'premium' customers for ccp bout time they fixed one of the major issues around the use of plexes.

I assume if the character has enough isk in game he can use the 4 hours to buy a plex in game and activate that? That would work also wouldn't it?

Okay that sounds like a Duh but I took the original post to mean he gets 4 hours to redeem a plex he already had. so just want to be clear he could use the 4 hours to sell stuff and buy a plex?

Even if Im not allowed, I feel smug for influencing CCP in the creation of hours for plex... ...and then for using the system so well they had to disable it temporarily.
