submitted a pettition..

How about letting us have the game time in the form of plex rather then raw time? if I've got this right I've got enough junk to fun my two accounts for the next 3-4 years I'd love to just take 2 years of time and cash in a few billion isk worth plexes instead.

Though the same initially, but redecided afterward.
I don't think they would do this, here's why:
They won't have an issue with creating artificial game time (and as said somewhere in "answers thread", they even have a single lifetime account per dev to give out), but creating artificial money is a different issue.

Creating PLEX is not creating ISK. No ISK enters the game when a PLEX is created, so your argument is invalid.

Petition created. I may actually have a package with everything on the list (a used Shuttle SN25P). Need to see if I still have the original nVidia 6800...

When you're done with it, if you find a Socket 939 Opteron it will run that too. Very Happy Should make a half-decent office PC.

I wanted to pop in and give you guys an update on the status of this project.

Firstly, thank you all for such an overwhelming response to this request. We have received over 100 petitions so far and our aim is to have a reply to you all before the end of the day.

Secondly, we are in the process of compiling a list of all items offered and bringing it to the team responsible. At this stage i cannot tell you when they will make a final decision but, as soon as we know, we will reply to you via petition and let you know.

Thanks navigator

Here's a few things I think everyone would benifit from...

Do you need complete systems including psu and hdd's, cases
Will you be accepting individual parts for time, a CPU could be worth say 1 month game time.

To those who want to know, the 6000 series included some pci cards too, so even ccp should be able to make use of them.

I think I have another tower in the garage, think a small gpu could be put in and it would workjust fine

Relevant parts of the OP highlighted:

Basically our stock of minimum system requirement machines at CCP has been almost depleted and because some of the min spec hardware is quite hard to obtain, we come to you in an attempt to find the more elusive items. So if you have 1 or more of the items on the list below, we can offer you free game time in exchange.

What we need:
• CPU: Intel Pentium® or AMD @ 1,5 Ghz which supports SSE2.
• RAM: XP (SP2) – 1 GB / Vista – 1.5 GB
• Video: Nvidia 6000 series.

What you will get in exchange:
Per item we will give you a 6 month subscription.
• CCP will also pay for the freight.

I want to thank everyone who filed a petition. We're at 130 petitions give or take. That's a lot more than we anticipated!

We are at a point where we have enough offers to choose from so I'm declaring this drive officially over.

As Navigator mentioned, we will get back to you all regarding your offers as soon as possible.

Cheers!

I would love to see the emoragequitccp if you tried playing your own game on a mac.


mac client works just fine, maybe you shouldnt try to run eve on a 5yr old laptop ;)

Wireless or hardwire connection? Is it a Mac router? if not, Linksys or D-Link and how old? Guessing it's not your MacBook Pro.

I have an old machine that matches those requirements, unfortunately I can't send it to CCP because then I wouldn't be able to play Eve at all. As an alternative, I would to offer six years of game time to any player out there who can send me a brand-new machine so I can conduct some rigorous inhouse tests of my own.
