im pretty sure you cant. unfortunate because i would love to get a money off voucher for my 2nd or 3rd account sometime :(

This is just to incentivise more people to get a 2nd account so they can make more money. they dont really wanna save ya any!
Im sure Wrangler bathes in a bath full of penny's!

It's only for creating a new account, you can't use it to reactivate or pay for already existing accounts.

Not quite.

Alt accounts have destroyed the need for teamwork in alot of situations. People can build their own stuff, jump around the galaxy with their cap ships, and take on gangs, all on their lonesome.

Very far from amazing.

Yes an amazing ploy to sub more people because you're projecting financial trouble due to a misfortune in sub's joining vs sub's leaving compared to overheads ><

Just think how much more $$$ and goodwill you'd earn if you let us use it on existing accounts. :P

Anyone that has more than 1 account is more likely to de-activate/re-activate their alt accounts to save on monthly fees causing a lot of customer churn. Why not get folks to subscribe those long term instead at a discount?

Good to see Eve^2 is back, Wasn't sure if it was a scam or not (e-mail sin't from a @CCP address and all).

Dude, I do that with my main account. I just had training and research and stuff all lined up to complete this week and my account ran out on Sep 14 or so.

As above though, which currency? EU49.95 is US$ 70 while US$ 49.95 is EU 35 (rounded to the laziest precision)

We use some service called subscribermail to handle it.

Alts have always been a destructive factor in this game. Well, destructive if you think about the game in long-term playability.

Ultimately, CCP will end up with a small percentage of Beta and Macro players that will continue to play, pay and trade ISK amongst themselves. If anyone wants to argue why that is a fun play experience, please do.

From my angle, I came to the game and started paying monthly because it was a challenge, it wasn't a grind. It took some brains to play this game, still does. But now, it will come down to who can afford another alt, train the alt, and sell the alt for ISK or even worse, use the alt for:

"We can give you that someone. We can bring that new dimension to your life, that special fluttery moment when you realize there are now two of you going through life's hardships. Together. As a Power of 2"

Talk about pandering to n00bs but really its about giving the old-school player yet another cheap alt for six months.

Sorry, I am very annoyed and no, you cannot have my stuff. This whole "stop whingin' about ****" is getting old from you "beta" players. There are a number of "started in the last year"s that are not exploiters nor grinders that love this game and are now seeing some major flaws in CCP and their choices, many of which are only catering to the EVE-lifers.

And you know, that is ok. But don't expect CCP to retain a monthly committment from us. Which means that you "can I have your stuff" whingers can play amongst yourselves since you've noone to play with, no new players to interact with within the game. Which, in the end, means that you and CCP will lose both ISK and also very real money, very real time.

So enjoy, ENJOY the cabal.

obligatory flame comment! etc etc

i have many alts to fly different kinds of spaceships. it would otherwise take me a literal foreveryness to try out different things. the different playstyles of each race is nice to change between to.
Also i dont play eve 24/7 infact theres a high chance you play more than me.
And out of the amount of you that do whine about people having alt theres seems to me a much bigger majority who dont care even if they themselves dont have alts.

Why in your opinion is having an alt such a good thing? Is it because people can play 2 at once so have less need to rely on others? or is it because some can use industiral chars to fund their pvp chars? If anything i see new people getting alts an advantage as it lets them train for different things making them more useful and more upto the standards of what a single char'd older player can do.

And i dont see your problem with having a alt stated in your actual post. you seem to say they are bad but give no reason except maybe because people sell them for isk...

Probably both 49.95 in Euro and USD; Euro price includes VAT (though the dollar has been falling quite a lot recently)
