Hallo all, I did some math and I'd like to get a new account.

If I...

send a buddy invite to myself (done)
select plex as reward (done)
open the trial account with 21 days (done)
give a plex from my main to my trial character
activate it

I should finish with:
51 gameplay days on new (ex)trial account
1 plex on my main (as reward for buddy program)

is that right? did I miss anything?

Well, you only get the PLEX for the invite once the trial account gets converted into a regular one, which will cost you at least a PLEX.

TL;DR No, you end up with 51 days only

I would activate my trial account with a plex sent from my main, that means 51 days on trial.

But...

then my main should receive a plex as reward

Yes, which basically means you're getting a free account so long as you sell the plex reward for your main. If not it'll cost you around 400m isk.

Oh and you can't send a plex to trial account. Hand over the isk and buy the plex on trial. Your main will receive the reward once your trial activates the plex.

You have 1 PLEX which you give to your trial and use it to make it a regular account, so it gets used up, consumed, vanished, de nada, gone.

You will get 1 PLEX as a reward but you used one to convert the trial.

1-1+1 is still 1 and not 2.

Yeah, I dont want to receive a free 2nd plex, my aim is to activate a 2nd account (a trader one) at no cost for 51 days


thanks ^^

yes

CCP did it to fake "paid subscribers" number before E3 (maybe Sony demanded bigger number or something)

That is correct. Upon activation of the buddy invite account, your main will get 1 PLEX because you chose 1 PLEX instead of 30 days game time as the reward.
