The Blackout have already shown beyond any doubt that AFK ratting and botting was an issue needing taking care of. The immediate impact has been great and while having lost my own easy access to ISK (through VNI ratting) i applaud the change. And there’s a simple reason for it:
I’m running 3 accounts at the moment and i pay for all of them. I could quite easily plex at least two of them every month, but i prioritize having fun when i play over saving money. My accounts all do different stuff and i play them more ore less actively depending on what i want to do. Sometimes i scout, sometimes i mine, sometimes i explore. It all depends.
Now i hear people running 5, 10, 20 or even 100 accounts, and i think something is wrong. Plexing is an unique way of getting access to a game - but the price of plexing should be time invested. Now, when somebody can run 100 accounts - or even 20 - it should be a sign of something very broken. The Blackout is part of the fix, but the people i know who run really large account-parks are using the skill extractor trick to do it.
So this should be next on CCP’s list, in an attempt to normalize the market and get rid of accounts that does not contribute with anything ingame. Skill extracting should have an overhaul so that it is no longer a viable option to keep up an endless amount of Omega-accounts.
Plexing should be achievable for any active player in EVE who invest time and prioritize a free game over ISK. It should not be easily accessible in any form of afk activity.
