Following normal CCP fearless logic, its obvious they going to turn eve into F2P with diff types of subs like LOTRO, so they can ram more people into the system and make the game sustainable so they can buy more monocles for themselves.

Well, if every ISK sink would be turned into an AUR sink, and if ISK rewards would be almost completely eliminated...
...maybe, just maybe Twisted Evil

Indeed, as I posted elsewhere:

1) Aurum should NEVER EVER be used for anything but vanity items if it must be used at all... I think the current market was good enough. Not sure why the hell Aurum sounded like a good idea.

This is an important question, but one the answer to which is becoming more and more obvious.

CCP obviously hopes to move to micro-transaction based game structure. If the game is free to play, then RMT players/bots have much less incentive to bot or RMT. But people have already paid for GTC/PLEX which represents free game time to be redeemed. When the game goes free to play, the PLEX and GTC become worthless to players, but CCP keeps all the money free and clear. Aurum then becomes the method of cash to isk/stuff and PLEX disappear forever. If that is the final objective for CCP, then it makes complete sense to have both Aurum and PLEX now.
