yes but if u mean u play eve for free ( ie u buy timecodes for isk ) thats fine. tbh you can buy plex cards now anyways which would make timecodes rendundant.. but my problem is not with the ability to buy game time with isk, my problem is with selling game time for isk as in the isk goes to the players :-)
Are you for real? GTCs are converted into PLEX. Timecode = plex where is the redunancy? The only difference is you pay for someone else's month of gameplay for however much isk you can get on the market.
The more newbs buy GTC to sell and get easy isk, the less isk they will get since supply will be greater than demand.
CCP's system is awesome. Person A has excess amounts of isk, person B has little isk and wants more. Person B buys a GTC, converts it to a PLEX, and sells it to Person A.
Person B paid for a month of time for person A, and got paid for it in isk. In the end, CCP get the ammount of money for time played by all players.
You seem to think that PLEX is an NPC item that people can buy like blueprints. Its not. It is a GTC that is converted into an in game item.
You don't have a problem with buying PLEX, but you have a problem with selling it. Seriously, wtf?
