I mean, eve isn’t exactly a spring chicken anymore and it’s hemorrhaging players for a good few years now. The F2P model is basically a forever trial with lots of things cut-out that make it unappealing to people with lots of SP. You would think that in all CCP’s brainstorming to get people to come back or get people committed they would have revised their pricing a bit.
I’m looking at my account now and considering resubbing but I reckon 15 euro is too much for what eve offers in the current year, I mean I can live with the devs keeping the game in limbo and refusing to make any actual changes in years beyond +5 pg and +15 cpu here and there, and I can live with them destroying high sec and turning low sec into arena pvp, and I can even live with them only ever really communicating with their playerbase on the third-party site that is reddit - but what I can’t live with is paying them 15 euro to play this game in 2018.
See, I’m a careful guy with my money, I’ll put a money limit on games I want to play, I’ll add them to my wishlist and wait years for them to hit whatever cap I reckon they’re worth and these days I reckon eve is worth about 9 euro per 30 days / 25 euro per 3 months (or in PLEX terms, about 700 million isk for 30 days). I mean, eventually CCP will be forced to drop the price significantly or go full F2P with P2W BPCs and stuff just to keep server numbers up, but they always seem to do these things too-little-too-late and about 2 years after they should have (like the F2P models that were introduced).
tl;dr CCP should hire me to manage the game for them, for I am an eve expert.
