That EVE goes F2P. Get fresh blood in the game after all why should Dust be free if we are not. On top of that the game is a decade old and has become to repeatative. If they go the same way that Rift did they could make a fortune. Just in the past three days alone I have spent $120.00 on Rift.

they've gained subscriptions every year for the past 10 years, i dont think they would consider going ftp for a long long while (thankfully!!)

Afterall, nothing says "They can't hear you scream in space" like a Barrens type chat.  I think FTP would be good for Eve.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

7/03/13 4:09:36 PM#4

You do know that if you earn enough in game currency - isk, that you can then trade in for a Plex within the game, and a Plex  is bascically a pre-paid one month subscription.

 

So you earn in game currency, then buy a Plex off the market (Auction House) and boom you have your one month paid for.

Meaning you never have to spend any real world money to play the game.

indeed. plex helps longtime players more than anyone else (because earning isk is trivial for them). I'm not sure if eve would get popular in the f2p market. I'm pretty sure anyone that likes the game will play the trial and wont have issues paying for it after that. being f2p would mean that the servers are constantly lagging with new players that give up after 2 days.

DUST 514 works as f2p because it's content exclusively involves killing other players.

Eve is much more than just killing other players and f2p would create havoc on those parts of the game.

Also, as other people have pointed out there's already a f2p element in eve in the form of plex.

I found this thread amusing as i just finished reading this assumed re-posted article about EVE F2P, guessing it was from April fools.

EVE won't work free.

 

Not to mention it can only support 100K online with the servers they have now. This idea EVE needs more people is a misconception. EVE is fine where it is.

They do that anyway, 50,000 players and half are free trials. (Oh the same 50k for the guy that thinks subs go up each year).

The only players that stay are heavily invested in it. Go to any high sec starter system, it and the systems around it are crawling with 8/10 trial players (which is another sore point, they shouldn't get to mine ore - but thats for another day!).

Add to it that "free trials" screams "please come play this, we need your money!" and F2P may be on the cards, esp. with the new EA signing... POS only $20! lol

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

CCP have never included free trials in their subscription numbers.

EVE has over 500k subs, split about 90:10 between "real" EVE and "chinese" EVE, and it's growing quite nicely thank you.

There is not one bit of truth in any of what you typed except "the only players that stay are heavily invested in it"; which makes me wonder whether that's what you meant to type or did you mean something else? Because  that line is self evident since you wouldn't  expect a person to stay if they didn't feel they had a stake in the game.

At anyone time CCP will admit that approx 5% of all players in eve are trial, so on an average sunday night of 60k players about 3k of them will be in the 21day trial.

 

In terms of the OP EvE will never go down the F2P route because it has a working model, why would any game who increase subs year on year (regardless of where them subs come from be it existing more accounts or new accounts, more is more) - Fact is its more likely a case of, wake up one day goto log on to get message "sorry eve is dead".. than going F2P :)

This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

CCP already make a fortune on PLEX. Why would they throw away all their subscription income (which is rising) and all the PLEX income, and commit to the huge development project that it would require to change EVE enough to implement "real" F2P, and see a huge percentage of their current playerbase simply leave?

Changing to F2P is for subscription games that are dying. EVE is growing.

so the OP's argument for EvE going free-to-play is that it is 10 years old and become to (sic) repetitive.

 

Not very convincing as this formula, if it can be called such, has led to EvE steadily increasing subs over the last 10 years.

I sometimes make spelling and grammar errors but I don't pretend it's because I'm using a phone

EVE will not go free to play as long as the sub numbers keep growing.

EvE is free, only need pay monthly sub , players can use  ingame currency (ISK)  for  sub !

Personal , I am never use plex,coz I suporting CCP with $$$$ for only real mmo on market.

only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW
