i just saw in account management that 2x plex's costs $34.99 AND 34.99 for 2x plex's from ccp

why is the eurozone expected to pay alot more for plex's than their american counterparts?

a 60 gtc from www.shatteredcrystal.com costs 26 approx thats 9 cheaper for 2x 30 plex's

ccp please sort it out

because, generally we have higher payout than US, and the EURO currency is much stronger +VAT

CCP has said multiple times it is because of the VAT in the EU, which they include in the Euro price.

Just continue to buy the GTC from american resellers where you won't get charged the VAT.

VAT is the excuse they use I believe. Have fun in your socialist paradise.

If CCP had matched or undercut the third party GTC sellers then I'm sure some business arrangements they had would be messed up, or something like that.

As long as our minimum wage stays at ~15$ or more usd , most are a bit higher though :) I'm happy to be here.

But then I'm scandinavian :P

And my view on ETCs are simple , they are for people who cant really afford to play the game or has means of extreme ingame income available :)
Heck 1 wild weekend of partying = 2 years worth of eve in cash when looking at subscription cost that is.

what is the purpose of purchasing ETC's when you can just subscribe? (I am not being sarcastic, just wondering if I should change my payment methods if ETC's are cheaper).

even $50 canadian dollars ($34.99 US) for 700m (Jita price PLEX x2 if ur lucky) is a bit steep right now. I can make that in a week what's the point.
