Price of Plex - Market intervention Required from CCP
The Price of Plex is putting off existing and new players from playing the game.
It is my view that market intervention from CCP is required. CCP will have statistical data on the impact on the price of plex and subscription levels. Is there any data that has been released into the public domain that we can see?
All I know is that I’m seeing more people leave the game as they cannot make the plex within a month and RL does not allow them to pay for their own PLEX. Like it or not we all know this happens. We also see more players consider returning and when they get to the ‘oh, wow my three accounts are going to cost 6 bil a month’ there is a pause in the potential return.
I would like to se data on the price elasticity of demand for PLEX and suggest to CCP they might be able to draw down more income from lowering the price of plex. Profit margins might increase through a market intervention strategy.
I have no issue with CCP making money from the player base. In fact the more the better, as we will continue to get investment into the game.
My tears are purely down to the fact I think PLEX price is too high.
Who at CCP is responsible for the economic and market based decision making?
