On the other hand, ammo bpc-s bought by aurum could function in the same way as ammo bpc-s bought by LP points.
I`m sorry but it`s not true.
How many pvpers use regular t1 ammo?
They either use t2 (scorche, barrage etc.) or faction becouse this gives an edge against oponents.
If they want to sell aurum ammo bpc at exorbital prices (looking at cash shop in eve) they need to be better than faction or no one will buy them.
So where this leaves us? All pvpers switching to aurum ammo will be mandatory to be on equal grounds with opposition but its not all.
Faction ammo needs will go through the floor to mostly pve use, LP value will decrease, mission runners will get affected, manufacturers of t1 ammo that is used to LP conversion will get affected and so on.
Eve is sandbox pull one string and quite a few more strings will be moved as well, some in not very nice direction thats why balance is always tricky and this move could upset balance in far more ways than i can imagine.
Unfortunetly eve menagment doesnt seem to play eve (they even talk about they favorite game in the greed is good) so they don`t grasp that concept and think it will work in sandbox as well as in thempark which imho isn`t true.
