There is a rich kid 13 aged in philadephia who bought 4596 PLEX ingame items last month. Due to that, there is no PLEX in market, and price has been raised to 2b isk... :(
It is a ficticious example, but It is what is really happening.

This way, we have to play more... for being able to pay our subscriptions... or otherwise pay real money, good for you CCP. The rich kid in phildelphia is very happy, as well as you.
But in real life, this is not allowed. You have to put a limit, stop rich people doing this. You can easily do it by ths simple way:

- Make the cost of PLEX constant every year. Let's say, 400m isk in 2012. You can raise it in 2013.

Please, do it. Or the only happy players in EVE will be you, and the rich kid.

That would cause more plex to be in the market and for the plexes to be cheaper.

You are understanding aaaaall wrong. PLEX is a very different item than others. It is real money! RMT. Assume it...
CCP should move the PLEX price in 2013 to consider the fluctuations of the isk value and

STOP SPECULATORS!

The OP lack of basic understanding of supply and demand is astonishing... It's the LACK of rich kids buying PLEX with $$ and selling for ISK that is driving prices up. That and speculators that have a lot of ISK.

The rich kid, after buying the 4000+ PLEXs would then put them for sale on the market, Supply UP, price DOWN. You have got it completley the wrong way round.

Also, how do you propose CPP just "Make the cost of PLEX constant every year. Let's say, 400m isk" You want them to alter players sell orders??

Hope OP is troll What?
Damn nature, you scary!

discouraging to see so many replies to a troll (or dimwit).

doesn't stop me from adding another one, though Roll

I believe OP Was referring to a rich kid who would have a lot of ISK (most likely through RMT) and who would have bought all those PLEX ingame thus making supply non existent and driving prices upwards.

I think the only way this could increase the cost of PLEX if all the existing supply was bought out with illegal RMT. Otherwise he'd do what? Buy 4500 plex, sell it to get ISK and crash the price.. then buy more PLEX with the money he had? I suppose you could manipulate the market that way... but you could also get slaughtered.

You can't fix RMT and botting by restricting the PLEX market.

The rich kid is CCP which buys PLEX with spawned ISK. Simple really.

I don't think CCP would threaten it's subscriber base by making PLEXs THIS expensive, maybe when they drop <400mil they may buy some up, not sure if that would even be legal seeing as someone has effectively purchased a months subscription, by CCP buying it up is destroying that 30 day subscription.

I believe he is attempting to call you a derogatory term for a gay person, for reasons I cannot decipher. Since when did they let idiots onto MD?
