    It's PLEX but not as we know it



    https://community.eveonline.com/news...es-on-the-way/

    TL;DR:
    • PLEX will will be broken up into smaller units. 1 PLEX will become 500 PLEX after this change
    • Aurum is going away, leftover Aurum will be converted to new PLEX, PLEX will be used for New Eden Store purchases (gametime, skins etc)
    • A PLEX Vault will allow sharing of PLEX between all characters on an account

    Plex is account wide now.... So why aren't skins account wide?

    Because of 'sales'.

    So they're essentially dropping PLEXes for Aurum, but keeping the old name. Not unanticipated given the initial launch of Aurum, but after so long I had given up on this happening.

    We don't know, but I doubt it.

    Sweet. 700 billion for each current PLEX owned.

    Also, this sounds awkward given what PLEX stands for. Not that it really changes anything meaningful.

    Between free-to-play accounts and premium currency this game does seem to be having an identity crisis. Whatever lets them survive and keep the servers open is fine by me even if it isn't to my taste.

    This enables micro-transactions in eve, makes spending real money on eve much easier especially for teens or students. Probably a good move by them.

    One would assume you will be able to redeem a few of the new mini-PLEX for a single day's worth of game time, but I don't think it's been confirmed that things will work that way.

    Q: With smaller PLEX, will I be able to buy less than 30 days of Omega time?
    A: We currently we have no plans regarding smaller game time packages.

    Ah, ok. I can understand it as well because unless you farm missions or ice belts 24/7, you don't need to be subbed for every day once you get over a certain skill threshold. And that realization might hurt the subscription bottomline far more than a Summer of Rage.

    CCP posts record profits in 2015: $20.7 million
    CCP introduces skill extractors in Feb 2016: Undoubtedly millions more in profits
    CCP redoes PLEX to make microtransactions real in Eve: 500 Plex

    CCP still can't afford hire a balance team: Priceless

    Calling it now: CCP being majority owned by venture capitalists is going to cause Incarna 2.0. Greed is Good indeed....

    Eve is a cash cow to fund their VR future.

    Personally I think VR is a fad and will end in tears, but if there is at least a 50%/50% chance of success with VR, that is a better business decision than throwing money into Eve which is 100% doomed.
