I originally posted this in the devblog comments thread, but it got swallowed up by all the rage there. So I post it here to give people something to think about while we wait for a better response. If anyone else has their own food for thought please don't feel shy and add to the fun.
Your subscription fee gives you unlimited access to the EVE Online servers, website, and customer support. Unlike console games where you are purchasing the game as-is, the development of EVE as a persistent world is ongoing with frequent updates to add new features and improve your gameplay experience. Subscriptions allow us to continue making EVE bigger and better as well as paying our staff their monthly wages. CCP does not charge extra for game expansions.
According to the EVE F.A.Q on your website
, AUR should never exist. If your own website is deceitful, why should we trust what you say? Just more food for thought.
