Because new players that want to plex their account to play as omega may feel it’s an impossible task to grind enough isk as a beginner and give up on the game. [/quote]It’s always been nigh on impossible for newbies to go straight into plexing their accounts, nothing has changed in that respect. Subbing for a few months before being able to generate enough regular isk to buy a plex was the norm for a long time.
Personally I found the plex grind to be a bugbear and it was killing my enjoyment of the game, I generally just pay with RL cash these days.
[quote]Also, the economics PHD CCP used to have on staff said it was not good for the plex price to get too high.[/quote]AFAIK CCP still employ a team of economists; and I recall a dev saying, in the last year or so, that he was surprised at how cheap plex actually is.
