PLEX Changes Coming

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jul 09, 2010  | Comments

PLEX Changes Coming - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

In a new developer blog post on the official EVE Online site, players are being let in on changes coming to the PLEX (Pilot License Extension) in-game item and redeeming systems. The changes boil down the the removal of a bunch of restrictions.

Developers take some time answering likely questions and concerns.

Are you crazy? Do you know how many people will emoragequit when they're ganked with PLEX in their cargo?

Maybe we're a little crazy, yes, but we truly think the benefits outweigh the risks here. One of them is to combat the perception that PLEX is a more valuable item than others in the game which, of course, it isn't (anyone who has lost a titan/carrier/T2 BS/etc knows this full well). Among the risks of course is that people will start losing PLEXs' en masse and cancel their subscriptions. We will be monitoring that extremely closely as well as all other aspects of PLEX trade/usage patterns. Remember, we're not forcing anyone to undock with PLEX, in fact we're making things a little bit safer (if people choose to use the option) by allowing redeeming of PLEX to all stations instead of just NPC stations. The choice and risk is always at the discretion of the player, just like it should be.

Changes will go into effect on July 13th. Read the full post here.

Thanks for the heads up, Cosy!
