With stuff going the way it is, we might as well add another idea into the hat.

Eve joining the "Free to play model".

* Tier 2 ships and components require a subscription. This would include hulks, orcas, titans, and certain high end materials.
* Certain nullset areas require a subscription to enter.
* Wormholes, infestead drone space, same thing.
* Lose the monthly subscription.
* Somewhat reduce the price on the AUR items.
* Add more stuff to the AUR shop.
* One account per IP - unless subscribed.

And there you go, completely destroyed EVE.

It's probably on their list of ideas anyway, I just figured I'd put it out there for everyone to consider.

Ever heard of "Play to pay"? If you make more than 400m ISK a month with your characters, you can buy your PLEX from the market. Good enough?

You could even sell pictures of yourself nude for PLEX if you never told P about it. :D

I'd call it "Pose to play".

It's called a "Trial Account".

There is no reason to make eve a "free to play" nightmare like so many others. I have tried the free to play game out there and have been extremely disappointed with them.

I like the model the way it is now; if you can't pay to play you can buy someone elses "charity". Others pay for you when you buy plex.
