PLEX is too cheap

(Sade Musana) #324

Uh? Surely rising PLEX prices will drive players to Isk sellers, as the average player cannot make the amount of Isk needed to PLEX an account.

I figured the whole idea for botters causing massive inflation to Isk in general and manipulating PLEX prices was for this exact reason, go buy their botted Isk, cheap PLEX!

posting in an old thread, PLEX was at a nice price range but has since gone up quite a bit. It is currently at a point where i consider it expensive

(Nana Skalski) #326

Every price above 400 Millions ISK for old PLEX (500 PLEX now) is too much for me. That was the price I remember when playing first time.

1 Bil is good but THAT should be the definitive end of the line…market regulation is not bad ,it’s nescessary.

Who will benefit from this? The people who can already afford plexing their accounts? People who think it will help them to plex their accounts? Plex traders? Or maybe NS ratters? cui bono? People who use their credit card to buy some? CCP?

Artificial boundaries is not viable on PLEX, since it needs to follow the development of the rest of the market, which is player controlled.

We know, we can smell the excrement clean across the planet.

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…

This dogmatism is the problem here

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

An irony overload is imminent. Physician heal thyself

(Balos Tritapo) #331

Maybe for you…but you are too smart for all of us…
It’s just your immagination but for you it’s real…
Changes are needed and you denying the need of said changes in a constant(and logical in your world) attemp of ignoring the change of the mmog world around eve is the real problem here.

2003 was good but it is OVER,long done,let it rest in peace.
Embrace the change to more mainstream or go…but do it quiet please and not with tons of salt…

(Balos Tritapo) #332

Very funny…still not true and a myth but still funny…

“player controlled market”…come on…

CCP still has the control over the market as they could simply spawn everything every time they want into it…

So the “player control” is just an illusion…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #333

Same for you comrade

(Jonah Gravenstein) #334

Apparently you don’t know what irony is.

(Balos Tritapo) #335

Oh i know that i’m dogmatic too…but that’s not the subject because MY dogmatism is unavoidable if there are people that see change -even the change that helps the game to the better- is seen as the enemy only because their convininence is threatened…

“we did it this way for 15 years now”…


THIS is a legitimation to continue a status CCP itself confessed its harmfulness for their income and so for the game?

I mean what kind of dogmatism is better for EVE…mine in constantly putting the finger in the wound,while disturbing the “all is well as it is” mantra singers or them singing this mantra inside their bubble not seeing what happens around them?

For me i choose option a…

Big ego, big statements but nothing concrete. You need a mining permit.

You have no idea what socialism is. Certainly not capping prices IN A VIDEO GAME.

p.s. If anything, a socialist government would encourage HIGHER Plex prices, because they’d probably think the work people do in real life is bringing more value to society than grinding for ISK in a freaking video game.

(Balos Tritapo) #338

says someone that wants to cement the status of the game WITH concrete walls around “the real eve”…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #339

No, you’re full of it as usual…

(Max Deveron) #340

Just remember Serenity… though a single organization did take all of null…by that point plex for a 30 day supply was above 10 Billion, and botting and RMT was so rampant that the Devs in China running Serenity were just RMT’ing items straight to the player base…

Playerbase on TQ is a different culture, and wont stand for the fact on top of a sub it would have to also Buy Plex just to play the stupid game…

If you think Plex is too cheap…then i think you are an idiot.

(Balos Tritapo) #341

Fixing prices in a market so that people can afford them is a clearly socialistic control move…the opposite would be doing nothing and only the rich people can afford and people die due to the lack of free healthcare for all like in the usa these days…but even saying this is a no go in “the land of the free” you are free to do everything…even die on the streets…

(Mevatla Vekraspek) #342

PLEX and healthcare compared… sure

(Jonah Gravenstein) #343


That’s not the most outlandish comparison that he’s posted.

@Balos_Tritapo PLEX is a luxury item, nobody in their right mind would attempt to fix the market price of a luxury item.

In a truly socialist society there would be no luxury items for sale at all; at least not to the proles, human nature ensuring that some will always be more equal than others.
