Add rolling expiration to loyalty points

Devs should bring a scarcity approach to player ‘stockpiles’ of loyalty points.

Points earned should expire at the end of the calendar month one year after they are earned.

Players would receive a notification list of the respective factions to what amount of loyalty points are expiring that month.

Introducing rolling expiration at this time scale would help give devs an extra lever for designing recurring events (e.g. resource wars LP store) to help push player engagement with the motivation of not wanting to miss out on expiring points.

Right, because more FOMO content is healthy for games.

Oh wait…

Maybe I’m too tired right now, but I still don’t understand the potential benefits.

What I do know, however, is that I will hold on to loyalty points when they give me a poor isk/LP ratio, and use them when the inverse is true. And I doubt making LP rewards expire is going to help me make more money. Perhaps I could spend more time thinking through the second and third order effects of this change, but my first instinct is just that it’s going to cost me money and annoy me with more “errands” (i.e. having to spend LP before they expire). Moreover, I’m sure it’s going to give returning players something else to complain about.
No P2W

And what I’d really like to see (because it would help me make more money, and provide a wealth storage alternative to plex) is the ability to buy and sell LP on the market. But, I won’t be holding my breath.

Just NO - if yes, then add the Same for every earned isk. You still think it is a good idea?
