CCP should cut the middle man (gtc) and just sell isk for cash. This would bring CCP more money because ppl would be paying for subs and isk not just buying gtc and selling them for isk. CCP deserves more money because they made a great game.

Absolutely not. The inflation it would introduce would pretty much destroy the economy, nevermind all of controversy of making it even easier for people to replace losses with in-game money.

I would rate this troll as 9/10 for being short, but 1/10 for creativity. Seen it too many times before.

No.

The GTC buyers pay with earned ISK to play. There is no new ISK entering the game.

If CCP would directly sell ISK then ISK out of nowhere would be entered into the game. So it will lose value.

im disappointed in u ppl. Who cares about ingame economy mumbo jumbo. What really matters is the survival of CCP and EVE Online. And about isk being thrown into the economy....wheres isk from mission agents coming from. Come on you know its the right thing to do.

The economy is at greater risk than CCP / EVE online you dont have to worry about them.

P.S. did you play planetside under the name Borg1of9UK or something?

ur logic=flawed.....solution: more schooling.....anyway isk and gtc are valuable commodities and do you know what you buy valuable commodities with...money. CCP makes more money b/c they collect on subs and they collect on ppl buying isk. This will also slow down the number of macro and illegal isk buying/selling.But who cares what u ppl think, CCP will see more money and like any corp they will do the logical thing and collect their money which I have no problem with. I don't know why you ppl don't wanna see CCP succeed. If you don't support this than you don't support CCP so I have one question for you haters...can i have ur stuff pleaseeeeee?

Basic Economics:

If more isk is flowing into the economy (missions, rat bounties, etc) than there is ISK leaving it (market taxes, LP stores, NPC sales), inflation occurs, i.e. the price of goods will increase because ISK is less valuable.
There is a limit to how much ISK is injected into the economy - missions can only be run at X speed, rats only spawn at Y rate, etc.

If you allow people to purchase ISK directly, someone can, in 10 seconds, inject 100 billion ISK into the economy. 100 billion ISK - that's the inflationary impact of a hundred thousand missions. Inflation rates will fluctuate wildly, the value of ISK will drop dramatically, the economy would collapse, and without an economy, there is no EVE.

Whether it's a good idea or not (it's not), or if the community wants it (it doesn't), CCP won't ever do it.

Poor attempt at a troll. No one who has been in the game long enough to speak on such issues is that blatently ignorant of what EVE is about. You blew your cover almost immediately.

Jenny strikes again!


Anyways, I hate to feed the troll, BUT: Do you have any idea what would happen if CCP sold ISK directly? Rampant inflation, economy is ruined and PvP is ruined (everyone has full faction gear and implants). People leave the game (including ISK farmers and macro miners who have subs). CCP subs drop off, CCP loses too much money, Eve servers are shut down. Worst case scenario, but possible. If YOU actually cared about CCP, you'd let CCP earn their money the hard way, through subs, and continue to support a great game.
