Subscription Price Changes

Subscription Price Changes - EVE Online -

Eve Online will be officially making changes to the subscription plans for both Europe and the United States as of February 25th, 2004.

"Due to changes in currency rates and value added tax legislation in Europe we must adjust our subscription price plans."

"Our European players will be affected by the European Union E-commerce Directive 2002/38/EC, Regulation 792/2002. This stipulates that all EU residents must pay a Value Added Tax (VAT) on electronically supplied services including online games. We are thus obligated to add a VAT on all payment transactions for customers living within the EU."

In view of this, the pricing structure for Europe will be:"

Cost/month* Total cost*
1-month-plan E$ 14.95 E$ 14.95
3-month-plan E$ 11.95 E$ 35.85
6-month-plan E$ 10.95 E$ 65.70

* VAT included

"For our players in the rest of the world, what affects us is that our revenues are denominated in US dollars, while our expenses are in Icelandic kronas. As you are probably aware of the US dollar has fallen in value quite dramatically in the last couple of years, and that trend doesn't seem to be changing. We can absorb usual currency fluctuations for limited periods but this has been going on for too long a time now."

In view of this, the pricing structure outside Europe will be:

Cost/month Total cost
1-month-plan $ 14.95 $ 14.95
3-month-plan $ 11.95 $ 35.85
6-month-plan $ 10.95 $ 65.70

"As can be seen we have done our very best to mitigate the effects of this by keeping 3-month and 6-month plans at the same price as before and only increase the 1-month subscription rate by 2 US dollars."
