The economic hard times have caused people to change their spending habits, as I am sure you are aware. I have suspended one of my accounts and I know Eve friends who have closed the only accounts they have. What I am suggesting is a training account status. Say you charge $5 a month for a player to keep training on a toon till he/she is able to afford to play again. That way even though they can't play they can keep up somewhat. Anyway just a suggestion.

This sounds good if you add in one condition: Once an account has gone into training-only status then the characters on that account can never be transferred to another account.

With this it will prevent character farmers from using the training-only accounts, but regular players can still use them.

This is a good suggestion. I would add that you can not use the provisional training unless your char is over 1 1/2 years old. That would also insure that regular Eve players got to use it. Players who find themselves in difficult times could be helped with a little thought.

Pay your account with ISK. You can't really get it cheaper than that. Rolling Eyes

Yay! Let's nullify all the effort CCP has done against character farming!

Did you read the two methods listed to prevent farming? This was a suggestion to help regular players who find themselves in difficult times.

... and why would you need to be making 500+mil/hour to pay for your play time with ISK? 60-day GTCs are only 600 mil, and you can earn that easily in a week if not less... So a week of play pays for two months of play. Seems like a good way to finance your game to me.

This idea is dependent on two things. 1. You have that kind of time to invest in the game and 2. The price of time cards remainds stable (The cost has almost doubled in the last couple of months). The cheap monthly fee seems like the way to go.

You need 10 mill a day, not 500 mill an hour. Befriend an R&D agent, sell datacores. That's totally free ISK there for you if you want too. 10 mill a day is really nothing. You can afk mine that in an industrial even.
