Anyone notice the "Related Items"?

Interesting. Why would you only get 50 days per gtc if your Japanese vs 60 days if your anyone else? Another money conversion thingy that loses CCP cash for selling 60 day gtc to the Nips?ugh

sounds like its taxing off 10 days worth from the GTC. Considering the reseller of the GTC has to get a cut himself...

Sounds right, if you think about it.

Some companies often come to CCP with "alternatives" that often have CCP earning more off "custom" GTCs, like this 50day one.

Cultures are different and so are their MMOG markets. The 50 day GTC may have made more sense for CCP in Japan than it would in North America or Europe. Not sure why people whine about GTC's; I just don't get why it matters that there's no more 90 day or 30 day cards.

Kazuma is that 10 day eve timecode legitimate? I've never heard of eve time codes being less than 30 days... a 10 day code would be useful when dark-training an alt. Is this an instance of ccp working out some kind of alternative pricing scheme with etc distributors? Does anyone else have experience with this? I'm basically fishing for more details and possible feedback before buying in on this...

I just read it on the very top of the front page of some site called Eve Online.

I've just used 3 a week ago (3x10day etc's = 30 days, for cheaper than a month's subscript) of em. Unfortunately, according to the TOS/EULA of the website, only local residents may buy and use said codes. Case in point: another former player down here tried to sell the ETC. Guess what. He's banned on this website.Rolling Eyes

They have IP checks here. Easily fooled. Then again, as I've stated before, friend tried it, now he's banned. Also, open proxies down here are blocked by that website now, so no go either.

I'm somewhat sure anyone determined enough to get away using the 10d would be able to do so, but for the effort required, why not get a 60day and get it over with?

It's true, it's a 50D GTC, well it's a 60D but after 50D the guy that sold you your time card activate his virus/keylogger/trojan and take away your account so you got what you paid for...50D the other 10 days he has to loot your character/corp/alliance and try to sell it so he can get even more isk out of that character to buy more 60D GTC to sekk isk and bait more players

You're a bald-faced liar. That's clearly in French, or maybe Qwhghlm. I'm not sure which.
