I personaly only play eve for the adrinaline and the rush i get when killing other people. I dont like sec hits so i only pvp in 0.0. I find pvp and certain ship types too broken to give me a fair value for rl $$

Just dont troll, if u agree with statement why u nver want to use rl $$ again just post here why,

i don't like monthly fee, for me it's like "you MUST play XX time or you wasted your money".
i hate this way of thinking. so if i can avoid paying with RL money, i do it. and i can do it so...
moreover i have alt account only because of that, so there's no way i will pay then with RL money. i have alt because i can pay with isk. without this option i wouldn't.
and without alts there's good chance i would also cancel main account.

I like "monthly fee" system most.

I think EVE has better value for money then most other mmo-s out there.

I have a feeling that the op is one of a fairly large number of people who do not realize that the plex they buy with isk was already paid for by somebody else. Many seem to think they are seeded by CCP.

I see countless threads from people threatening to stop paying real money for their subs and ONLY use plex purchased with isk. More often than not, they think this will punish ccp in some way, shape, or form.

What they fail to understand is that it makes no difference to ccp one way or the other, since they already were paid by somebody else for that plex you just purchased with isk.

Also the meat he have everynight comes from the magical fridge at the store.

Who care if you pay or not? I personnally think that I have what I pay for with the vast possibility of things I can do in this game. By choice I don't do much for now, but I have the possibility to do much much more, and no other games gives me that many choices. So I'll gladly pay the 15$/month to play.

I prefer to pay with RL moneys for my sub. Otherwise EVE may get too much like a job, "ugh, gotta log on and grind so I can buy a PLEX". No thanks. Plus it gives me more ISK each month to get exploded in PvP.

How many accounts is Eve up to now?

I remember something a while back saying 300k...

let's see, 3 accounts out of 300k accounts would be what... 1/10,000th of a percent (may be off by a zero due to me sucking at math, even my recruiter told me "your math reasoning f***ing blows" Razz)! How would CCP ever recover?! Shocked

Not to mention that players that PLEX their accounts with ISK are maintaining the demand for PLEX anyways. More or less indirectly supplying money to CCP.

haha exactly the opposite for me.
it's when i pay with cash that i have the impression i need to play.
when paying with isk i simply think about a way to get the needed money for pexes from a passive way.

and btw ccp care that we use the plexes already bought, cause they can't put them on the good spot on their acounting without that. go check posts from akita and so about this if you want more info

Actually the timing is just right to prevent me from being able to do any PI this morning, so that's going to suffer a setback. However, compared to CCP making the game better... it's really not worth *****ing about.

Im paying my sub normally but i'm watching this micro transaction crap closely. First item they put there to affect gameplay as little as possible i'm out for good. I know what happens after, i've seen this already.

Maybe my MMORPG career will be over too or ill try star wars kotor.

Yeh cause 14 bucks is a lot right even with two accounts at 30 bucks a month is still crap. Go to a movie get some popcorn ans soda for two people and you just spent the same monies for two hours of entertainment for two people. (=4 hours of entertainment)

So basically your saying as long as you play 4 hours a month your good to go right?

I love how people complain about spending money on these game. MMOS at 15 bucks a month imo is an incredible value for entertainment even if you only get to play 20 hours a month.

Think of it... 20 hours in a theater that's around 10 movies 10 movies at 8 bucks a pop well you've hit 80 bucks and have yet to toss any popcorn in your mouth.

This in ma case too.

When some game becomes a job where you don't have the choice but spend more and more time in, it's time to get out and get a real job.
I could certainly pay my self plex for mu accounts but I don't, I'm buying fuking expensive space ships and blowing being blowned. Most important I'm having fun like a kid.

Isn't the purpose of any game? -just my humble opinion.

Here it's very easy. How long will it take to make 1 billion ingame? For me too long. I am not farming Sanctums in nullsec nor I am sitting with a disco Rokh 8 hours per day at a gate fishing for Shuttles and small ships PROBABLY moving PLEX or other expensive stuff. Due to my intense RL I just play PvP randomly. When I started EVE I spent a lot of time for lvl4 missions finally. Waste of time because I have a good payed job. For one GTC I work one hour in RL maximum. So the pragmatic conclusion is: buying/selling GTC.

Sure, overall the game can be expensive. But compared to my income it's still a cheap hobby if you look at guys tuning their cars and bikes all the time. With 2 PLEX I can have fun for a few days up to weeks/months depending on my PvP success, loot or fail. But overall I see no other option for me but using GTC. Everything else would end up in a full time ingame job = waste of important RL time. Honestly: CCP has to think about this because I met a lot of emo-hardcore-nerds wasting their life for pixels. But that's a catch22 for CCP. A great game like EVE needs nerds. But that's another story...

This. I can't even imagine how much I've saved by subscribing to MMOs. I could easily see my entertainment budhet blowing up tenfold without it. Razz

Huh, when I saw this I thought he said he wasn't going to use PLEX again. I'm sure not. Who wants to waste their time grinding isk for the next PLEX like some poor ******* living paycheck to paycheck?

Edit: wait, is s-c-h-m-u-c-k really a curseword?

What is the cost of a month's account playing Eve? An hour down the pub or two bottles of half decent wino from the supermarket. If that.

I can never understand Plex? Ok if you have a stupid amount of isk or isk income then fine... But to actually grind at ratting or mining is wierd (for people that work in rl)... Even earning 100mil an hour ratting/mining that takes 4 hours for one plex, if I do four hours overtime that pays for 8 months of subs, even at basic wage you will pay for 2 months subs....

Just my 2 isk...

such smart poster in this thread. Nice to see for once :)

All everyones threttz to "never pay ccp money evar gen" and just buy plex. This doesnt hurt them at all! They get their money anyways. Who do you think buys the plex. People. Thats right. I gladly pay for time with real money. I like pew ships go splode. And not shelling 420m i think is the current price for plex makes it so.

BUT ignore my advice, Please EVERYONE continue buying plex and make the prices skyrocket to 600m+ who knows. I will buy some plex with my money i get from my job and make 1.2b isk. which in fact ive never had at one time :P.
