Last time I checked I was a college student.

I pay for 3 eve accounts on yearly subs... I work and make less then minimum wage in return for free housing and go to school full time... Hell eve is a lot cheaper compared my other expenses like going out with friends.

I don't understand how you people are so poor. I highly doubt anyone makes less money than I do (and actually holds ANY job) yet the whining is amazing.

I also make enough isk in eve to fund another 3 accounts with GTCs. Sure it'd be nice to have all 6 on GTC's but spending $11 a month (or 15 if you really can't save up $100 my lord) should not be THAT difficult for you. With my meager income I do it 3 times over!


Lol, when you buy a house and have a wife and 2 kids then you will understand.


Not to mention getting a job that wants to pay a college-graduate minimum wage to do a job that the national-average is about 5x minimum wage, while having to pay rent(or mortgage), bills, food, entertainment (aside from eve).... When you get out from FREE rent and bills then perhaps you can comment on the state of finances.

Hell I'm unemployed with 0 income, but if i had free housing i could afford eve with cash too. Thats not a special feat.

I reply that if you don't make enough to pay $15/month for a game because of your family obligations or don't make enough, then you simply don't earn enough to play a paying game and shouldn't be playing the game and use the EVE time to better your RL situation via a 2nd job or going back to school or learning some other job skill.

But those complaining about not being able to afford a 2nd, 3rd account, etc are just laughable. Play with 1, thousands are able to enjoy the game with 1 account. You need to make new friends to takeover whatever your 2nd and 3rd account was doing.

I want to agree with you, and when it comes to the number of accounts, I do. But when it comes to whether one should be playing at all, the World isn't that simple. What if there is no second jobs? There are plenty of countries where the unemployment rate is over 20%. And trust me when I say being unemployed gets boring after a few weeks.

If it takes you that much work to earn your plex in game - just get a crappy job for 2 hours a month IRL and pay for it instead.

PLEX prices are not high, they used to be higher before the ingame mechanism was introduce. If anything PLEX prices are too low.

atm 30 day plex is ~380mil isk, 60day gtc are ~770m isk. I've been selling GTC's for 2+ years and this is around what the market will bear (though it did drop to something like 500m at one point). Price of 30 day plex is right as it is

I have enough to PLEX it but i find that puts a burden on me and makes the game into a "3nd" job.

I pay cash for my 4 accounts. Thats over $500 a year (I love my income tax return...lol) Of course thats is coming to a stop in February when my subs run out. Don't like the way the game is being further developed so I'm taking my cash and walking with it.
