There seems to be ZERO justification for this move other than to sneak in a price hike. Otherwise it makes little sense at all. I understand the dollar is **** and prices need to go up, but this was a lame way to go about it.

The 60 day option appears to replace the others as a method of covering up the price increase. I really cannot understate what a slimey and disgusting move that is. If CCP wanted to increase prices, they should have come out and said that and kept the 30 and 90 day options. By trying to sneak around you only provoke everyone's ire. Its insulting to our intelligence tbh.

60 day GTC: Fine.
Price Hike: Not welcomed, but able to deal with it.
Removal of 30d/90D GTCs: Just Wrong. I enjoy the flexibility of choosing how long I want to subscribe for via GTC, at this rate it will just be plain easier to return to CC subscription.

At least keep the 30 day cards for the convenience.

Well I would hate to disagree with you guys on this one. For one, the expansions that have been put into eve cost man hours, They don't charge you for these expansions they are given to you for free. Second look at it this way, 1 30d GTC is 14.95, thus technically a 90d gtc should cost $44.85 not the $38.85 (Loss of 6 bucks) They are increasing the price by a whole $2.50/month with the 60d GTC's, I'm sorry thats two coffee's a month?

If you feel that is too heavy on your wallets Sorry, get a credit card pay yearly or just buy them with iskies! Might increase the ingame costs, but shouldn't really affect you. No Credit Card? No problem there is alternative ways to pay for eve, look into it.

And Yes Keep 30/90 day GTC's just increase the costs of the 90d and drop the 60d to the respective 30 bucks or w/e to make these people satisfied.


Ever heard of bulk buying? By paying for 90 days they guarantee your business for 2 more months even if you don't play 1 bit. So they make it cheaper than it is to buy 3 seperate 30 day time codes, all businesses do this, it secures more business.

The alternative ways ARE GTC's so you are saying find another alternative when this one works fine for most people. It's just bad business to make it more difficult for people to pay for your game.

Personally, I can't always pay for several accounts every month, so a 30 day options is great, if I have the money I can pay for the alternate account and not worry about it, heck if I can't play next month because I have a lot of stuff to do, it's ok I haven't lost any money, because I bought a 30 day. Now I know you want my money, but I don't want to lose it, so instead I just won't.

I don't see a problem with the price rise. To be honest, as a lot of people have said, it's been a long time coming so we'll just have to accept it. Bear in mind that, whether you think they are good or not, we get free expansions and a free client in the first place as well. They should however, had been honest in saying its a price rise.


On the other hand, why get rid of 30/90 day GTCs?? It makes no sense. In the face of rising costs CCP should be giving it's customers more options to fund their account in chunks which suits their lifestyle/wages/whatever, not bottleneck everyone into a single option, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of players are lost not because the game is too expensive, but because the way they have to pay isn't feasible for them.

Bring back 30/90 day GTCs!!!

signed as well, price increase isn't the end of the world, but removing 30/90 options is bad business. If I had to sign up for 60 days right after my 14 day I probably wouldn't have.

Larger concern is that this WILL cause players to cancel, and this is a game that needs to grow, not shrink.

Removing the 30 and 90 day options is bad.
Massaging the price up at the same time is seriously taking the p*ss.

Do CCP think they are the only people with an Economist and a calculator ?

I really hate the increase in price but for crying out loud please keep the 30 day and 90 day codes. I use the 30 day ones myself and they are really really helpful.

I always wondered why 50/100 GTCs existed, and adding 60s to the linup wouldn't hurt, but I don't see a reason to get rid of 30/90s.

I would fully support keeping the 30/90 day GTC options.

I take great advantage of the flexibility that they offer.

Removal of the 30-day GTC's will be a significant nerf to my game play.

However, from a business stand point, I understand why CCP is doing this, all the more so since I know I am abusing the flexibility that GTC's have offered in the past.

So I will pledge my support for the CSM to lobby for the retention of 30/90 day GTC, but will accept the fact that they are unlike to be able to win out over business constraints.
