I think a life time sub would be a good ide.

like 200 usd or 300usd and you will have paid for eve forever.

They only put that stuff in games that have level caps and such, in those cases it's profitable. Wink

Your economist might disagree with you.

If I create a new account using the Power of 2 option, can I switch to using Game Time Codes to pay for the account once the 6 months are up? Or do I have to keep paying by Credit Card?

So why don't you charge everyone in USD/EUR and leave it up to their respective banks to do the conversion?

And yes. that's some quite ridiculously old prices you've got there. When were they set, exactly? Last year? The USD's been weak for ages.


Quoting myself because the question got ignored, again.

i think the real flaw in all this is that this game forces you to have a 2nd account to have a legitimate alt.

anyway, as things stand.... now i just need to convince my wife why i need to spend $50 for another account Confused

Althou I'm tempted to start 3rd account by using MY method (30d trial, 2x dirty cheap USD GTC's to get even with greedy CCP) but then again I fail to see why bother .. It's bit too late to start altastic race towards yours 10m SP (Thats the amount you will get once you hit 6 months).

well ..
I trained an alt on my account ages ago - before you could get 800K SP to start with - all the way up to RPM 4 to do research.
so that was 1.2mil SP [or more] out of my mains training - you kids today get it easy Rolling Eyes

though I'm considering a power of 2 account for skilling that alt for 6mths

I dont understand how this will draw more noobs unless people who have friends who MIGHT be interested get their friends the accounts.

Don't you have to have an existing account to get the power of 2?

Am I right that this offer is ONLY available to people who have an existing account?


Yes its for existing accounts.

Its not about new players.It's about ccp getting more accounts.

The New players will arrive when they release Revelations 3 and every gaming sight will have ads for free 14 day trials.
Not to mention the E mails ccp will be sending out to people who quit/left.

I really don't like the fact that you effectively need to pay for 2 accounts to be able to compete in Eve. Not only that but CCP is also actively encouraging it. It doesn't really sound like an mmorpg to me in this way, metagaming like this.

And yes I know there will be people saying that's it's not required, and sure you can play without it, but it sure comes in handy. Alt scouts, alt haulers, alt invention/r&d/production chars, alt spies, cyno alts, it just doesn't end.

I finally gave in a month ago so I could do eventually do invention with my own pos, without having to leave my corp. But I definitely don't like that this whole game is built around alts.

lets see, 2* 90 day GTCs from shattered crystal = 28.47 euros + 14 days free trial = 194 days for 56.94 euros (0.29 euros per day). Power of 2 = 178 days for 49.95 euros (0.28 euros per day). Rolling Eyes

If you pay in euros I would say this offer is pretty worthless. ugh

That sucks, but it is sort of a discount, and who hasn't gone out and bought a fancy new thingy just to discover a sale on the same item a day/week/month later?

Same thing here as far as I can tell, I can't find any mention of Po2 in my main account's options. Are you supposed to start Power of 2 through your main account, or are you supposed to register a new account and then link back to your main that way in order for it to work, or what?

Hmmm, ok....then where is the option to create it supposed to be located? Or is Power of 2 only viable for people who run on 6-month subscriptions already or something somehow? If it's supposed to be under Account Services, there's nothing there for Po2 on mine...I have EVE Voice, Transfer Character, Swap Character Portrait and Securely Sell EVE Time Code, and that's it.

Trouble:

I clicked the url to see the offer on the eve website and it asks me to login to "use the power of 2" but it doesn't accept my login information and at the same time im logged in with my account.

Also starting a fresh browser and selecting account management brings me to the same power of 2 login that does not work.

If you're having problems using the Power of 2 offer I suggest you petition it. Smile

I'd done that and finally got a response back this morning....and was told that supposedly if you didn't get an email invite regarding the promotion, you're not eligible for it and if the option doesn't show up in your Account Management settings, they can't fix it manually where it will. Which more than a bit confusing, because why is this thread stickied as if to advertise the promotion if it's not open to anyone who's a current subscriber? Or furthermore, why is it not open to anyone who's a current subscriber if so?
