Why when i paid for my normal 3 months instead of a little price reduction it cost me $50.00 now???

Its not my problem what ever your problems are but that was crap.If ppl pay with euros its becaused it is where they live.

you just changed it with an excuse out of sheer greed.

sorry cant afford this and wont pay more than $14.99 a month for any mmorpg since all others stick with that price.

this will not get you as many new players and the greed will actually cost you since most experienced mmorpgers know the normal prices for online game play. EVE is not that special or complicated, and doesnt give anything away except mabe the free "patches"
which need to be since they not huge anyways.Rolling Eyes

Chew away trolls but losing 7 accts from 1 player at a time will become more costly than the few bucks you earn from who is left over.

just my fyi

Euro in the toilet? 1 euro is still worth 1.24 USD. Sure it's come down about 25 cents but it's still more valuable than USD.

I was talking about the euro cost of the 7 accounts for the price hike being 24 USD more.

I think they just hit the Euro price unless I missunderstood the coment elsewhere

There are alternative ways to keep your account active without paying out of pocket. The first would be purchasing PLEX in game with ISK. The other is using the buddy referral program. If your friend stays on past the trial, you get 30 days added to your account.

Yeah with that many alts you could have enough passive income from research agents to pay for most of those accounts. Not to mention the new pi which whilst not totally passive scales extremely well the more characters you have managing planets.Wink

just my fyi
My bill was 38.95 plus a 1.95 international transaction fee

there own billing page shows that three months is still 38.95

so either you flat out do not know how to do basic math, or there was a billing error, or you flat out lied in your first post.

edit note, CCP is not the one who charges you the international banking fee, its the bank or company that issued your credit card.

If your bank/credit card issuer is actualy charging you a 11 USD fee per for international transactions, GET ANOTHER CARD.

The guy decided to try out a new game so he got himself 7 accounts?

And didn't seem to think that was very deep into the game?

(not to mention the guy suddenly watching his wallet so closely while free spending for the micro advantage a 7th account would give you over a 6th account)

Has got to be a troll or an on an outpatient routine with an asylum

ok lets review

He claims he was billed $50 for an account that costs 38.95 (I was billed 40.90 total last time including int banking fee)

The options are that he somehow payed 11.05 in International banking fees and needs to yell at his card issuer.

or hes one of the many people who got stuck with new anual fees this month

or he had a billing error and needs to sort it out with either CCP or the credit card issuer

or he cant do basic math (for that many accounts I would have payed 286.3, if he was billed 50 per he would have been billed 350)

or he flat out lied.

from where Im sitting, thats exactly what you did.

My bill for one character is USD 40.9 including int banking fee of 1.95

your claiming you were billed USD 50.


go back look over your billing statment to see what your actualy being billed, make sure that all charges Are for what you think they should be and that you were not zinged with an annual fee like virtualy everyone else was this month(it was the last month they could get away with arbitrarily adding it) if its still in eror call up the company that you think is most responsible for said error.

By the way if you are being billed is Canadian Dolars my sympathies, you were hooked by the change in Exchange rates again.

but subscribing since 1998 if your paying Canadian you should be used to the changes in rates that you have to put up with every other month as it is

Well that was incredibly rude. That sort of attitude isn't going to get you much of anywhere with anything.

It's still the same price of $38.85 that is always has been for a 3 months subscription. And it wouldn't really be that hard to earn isk to be able buy plex's each month to pay for your accounts or at the least a few of them.

I suggest you look at how much it costs for an international transaction by your bank, or maybe there was a billing issue. Make a petition just in case something happened on CCP's end of the bill. Here is the petition page:

ok for the people who don't realise

IF you are in europe
eve o charges you 34.99euros for 60day time card

battleclinic charges $34.99 for a 60 day timecard
thats 23.90 or 27.48 euros

6 month subscription is just as bad 71.7 euros or $90 dollars if your in europe and if you live in america it's $71.7 dollars

an equal price would be 57.1 euros as thats equivalent to $71.7

basically ccp is scamming everyone in europe.

Somebody ban him, make sure he follows through on his promise to cancel his 7 accounts.

They have always charged Europeans in Euros and North-Americans in USD. I guess he can pray that the European economy stays bad and the euro drops to parity with the dollar (there was an article a while ago in some finance magazine that said this will happen in 8 or so months), and then he'll be happy.

All in all, though, we don't give a **** about your stupid $50, and you're whining about something that's not news, so there isn't even any entertainment value in your post.

Players can purchase GTC from 3rd party sites, however, depending on the money exchange and the bank surcharges it could very well equal to the same price. Some banks may charge for purchases outside of the country and/or currency conversion.

If you do purchase this way I would suggest checking with your bank with any hidden fees and keep an eye on the currency exchange rate.

Hah great whining because playing 7 MMO accounts at the same time gets to expensive. Hello this is a multiplayer game, you are supposed to play it with other people and not with yourself and your twentysomething different characters.

Okay I admit I also use more than one account for training purposes, but I wouldn't ever think about complaining about this being to expensive, espacially when it isn't as long as you prolong your subscription by PLEX or GTCs... ^^
