PLEX is too cheap

(Lily Inkura) #303

OK. So what is your point?

Given that 299 posts are TL;DR … how about a quick summary of your position, what it is, and why it is important?

I see a beautiful double bottom, time to stack up!

(Goose726) #305

Heck, last time I played you could buy a plex for 340 mil pre split in Jita 4-4. Now if I come back I could get over 1.5 billion per plex? Seems pretty good to me.

Should be limited by CCP to 1 billion…expensive enough

There cannot be enough socialism and market control in this game…

ooooh yes please, me and every other person who relies heavily on plex would love that. in fact, why limit it to 1b. set a hard cap at 500m so it can feel like “the good ol days” and that way I can buy 3x as much plex for the same amount of isk, along with every other investor and SP farmer completely draining the market.

of course, it won’t be worth anyones time to actually buy plex for cash anymore, since a hard cap means you won’t be getting nearly as much isk for your 20 bucks as you need with current market prices. which will leave the regular plex market a barren wasteland, with the few people desperate enough to put up plex at the capped price getting bought up almost instantly.

but its okay, what you will see instead is a surge in advertising from the plex brokers who have overnight been handed a near complete monopoly on the market. offering to sell you 500 packs of plex for 1b-1.5b over contracts. assuming that you can sift your way through the massive amounts of jita spam to find them that is.
of course, contracts are notoriously easy to scam with, so you will either have to be super careful whenever you buy. or you will hope you can get lucky enough to snag one of the few price capped plex before the marketeers do.

I’m simply right and your reaction shows i am…thank you for it :slight_smile:

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #310

That’s a brilliant demonstration comrade balos.

(Balos Tritapo) #311

This is called a self-affirming statement in case you wonder…:slight_smile:

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #312

If that makes you feel better, why not, but that won’t make your arguments better. For me, you sound like a prey telling to the lion no no no, you won’t eat me cos i’m strong…

(Balos Tritapo) #313

I’m so strong i even don’t need no support from anybody…even if(what is not the case) the whole forum would be against me i still am right with my crusade…this absolute conviction is what the most people miss here and this is the reason why they so desperately cling to 2003 and fight every change and everyone that demands for a change to the better with claws and teeth…

This is really sad in my eyes…they are stucked in a bubble with no way to get out…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #314

Your post summarize completely why everyone is against you, it’s empty, a complete void. All of your so called propositions are based on feelings and goodwill, none on gameplay and mechanics. Enough. Come with practical ideas and dare ask people what they think about those, stop with your religious zealot mantras.

(Sollis Vynneve) #315

Plexes too i remember when 500 plex would cost 300 mil

(NotTheSmartestCookie) #316

Hear hear. For everyone with two braincells it is obvious that limiting the max price of PLEX would encourage players to go to illegal ISK sellers. I remember when gatetime cards were 350m, and Dominix battleships 50m. However EVE has changed a lot, especially in how easy it is to generate large amounts of ISK. I doubt it takes a skilled character more time now to PLEX an account than it did 8 years ago.

The source of the truth is irrelevant as long as it is true…

The real problem here is that some are denying it simply because it does not fit in their agenda…

“Change is bad and we should return to 2003 even if the game dies in the process because we don’t want to be forced to adapt to changes because that would be inconviniend and we don’t want that because we were spoiled for 15 years so we see no need in a change…”

Sometimes things are as easy as they seem to be…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #318

Empty, propose concrete stuff.

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #319

I’m in PLEX trade, their value is not their most important characteristic.

(Balos Tritapo) #320

yes concrete…

But not from me…concrete is mixed by the 2003 guys…concrete walls erected around “the real and only eve” so that no one would dare to change it…

Let me tell you something…if those people are succesful the game is over…in many ways…but-as i said before. they don’t care…they rather like to play the game for 1 year 'til it closes than to admit that an altered game would have a chance to be played longer.

This dogmatism is the problem here…not a single guy that sees the light at the end of the tunnel as what it is…the train that will run over you…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #321

Empty, as empty as a rorqual capacitor after a FVB run.

(Balos Tritapo) #322

And you really thinking your foolishness would become truer through constant repetition is part of the problem…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #323

Still, no concrete proposition, i’m waiting.
