the proposal is simple, really. since PLEXes have been such a success, ccp should add character transfer and portrait change tokens as well that people can buy and trade ingame. with the same ingame restrictions with PLEXes(such as the inability to remove them from the station).

I think that there's an untapped demand for these services from the "poor IRL but rich ingame" market, and I think it's financially worth the cost of coding in.

...Cool.

Honestly, with cloning tech the way it is in game there is no reason why we shouldn't already have this option.

Just make them transportable like PLEX should be

lest start first with the damn credit card issue. Why do i need a credit card to transfer chars? not all peoplw own 1 and want to own 1.

Yes, I'd like the ability for other people to pay for my in-game services. Very Happy

It would make character transfers easier, for sure. I don't have a 20 (it's 20, isn't it?) to drop if I wanted to sell one of my characters... in fact, I could open up a currently unused account and sell that character if this was made possible.

It would increase the amount of transfers and portrait changes taking place, which means CCP would make more money, and it makes the playerbase happy. What's not to like?

Thumb up.

this sounds like a really good idea. would simplify the process and should speed it up. you would need a median price for these services, but shouldn't be to hard to figure out, maybe around 350m-400m isk to transfer a toon which sounds about right since a gtc costs $35 us and 30 days sells around 300m isk

And just like they did with fan fest tickets. So the code is there or should be trivial to code. Great idea.

Alternativly, plex could be used for the 30days or face change or character transfer.

I really don't see any reason why everything that involves currency shouldn't be done in-game.

Yes!

Don't they all cost the same amount as eachother anyway?

So It shouldn't be that hard, to just implement an option on what you want to use your plex for once you buy it, or something like that, so it doesn't create 3 seperate markets, as the Character sale + Character portrait market would be dead in comparison to gtcs

Also if I'm not mistaken, there is more supply than there is demand when it comes to GTC at the moment, so I guess that would help the situation

There is a very good reason PLEX isn't transportable. Picture me this: You are flying around space to bring your PLEX from one station to another. Somebody is passive targeting you to cargo scan and they see said PLEX. They suicide gank you, their corp mate takes your PLEX. Yay free month of gameplay. PLEXes are usable from anywhere, so there's no reason they should be transportable.

Other than that, fully supported.

How is this different from ganking your 300m hauler and buying a plex, yay free month?
Fully supported, this would be awesome.
