Just wondering if anyone agrees with me on my thoughts on this .
Why is MCT more expensive than omega
Given your sub allows you to play in omega AND train a character doesn’t MCT seem overpriced given you just get to train a character .
Surely if CCP reduced the cost to below the sub more people would take up the offer as it would actually seem to be good value relatively . You don’t get to play 2 characters at once do you so why should it be more expensive than a subs cost ?
In the long turn it’s better for ccp to have multiple accounts because it’s more money for them and it helps with the logins. They’re not really incentivised to make MCT a logical option, it’s only us players who in specific cases see the use for it.
They would probably increase PLEX prices (in ISK value) by creating a lot of demand by SP farmers.
MCT cannot be any lower than its current value without significantly affecting the PLEX economy. And PLEX economy is why EVE’s economic model is unique and delicate with lots of parameters that need to be balanced the right way to remain sustainable.
Otherwise why care about ISK sinks and faucets at all? Other MMOs often screw up their economies in major ways with no real consequences. Not so with EVE. If you muck up the economy, you kill a very important aspect of the game that distinguishes it from other MMOs, and you may have to do some major moves like removing PLEX to keep your profits as a company - which will also drive players away.
MCT for 485 PLEX is still a good bargain for training passive ISK making skills on the 2 additional characters you get with each account. Omega state is account-wide, so applies to your additional characters even if you are not training any more skills. With PI, you can generate 300mil+ ISK per character every month if you join a corp that has access to nullsec or j-space planets, and are doing extraction > production chains; possibly more if you play the market and do factory planets. You can add similar passive ISK income with manufacturing T2 hulls/modules, doing reactions, and doing BPO research with worthwhile BPOs. Check out the market here at the forums to get an idea.
In no time will your Omega account be paying for itself with these passive income sources. That’s why you do MCT for a while.
Yeah I know it’s like that for most part, for me however it’s the opposite, they lose out on me paying for accounts because I don’t want to justify the cost for a fleet of accounts that will only be used for 3 days, so rather than me paying 10 accounts for a week, I pay zero.
But I agree that the net overall is probably bad for them if they were to offer it, just a shame that there’s no option but to waste subscription time. I’d pay a year if I could pause/resume in an instant as well rather than waste time when I don’t have time to play.
