Making EVE Online (Almost) Free-to-Play

Posted Wed, Aug 12, 2009 by Savanja

During trying economic times, many players need to be as frugal as they can with their gaming cash. EVE Online developed a unique system that actually allows players to game for their subscription by using in game currency to purchase PLEX.

CCP dev Grimmi explains all about PLEX in this most recent dev blog. There are also some charts and technical explanations which, has anyone noticed that the EVE guys REALLY like charts and graphs?

EVECitizen943 is in trouble. Money is tight and the missus is not entirely on board with the whole idea of some of it being spent on a silly thing like an awesome totally rockin' massively multiplayer online role-playing game. "Ah, the memories. Look, there's my good old trusty Marauder class Battleship, the Paladin. Laid down some serious pwnage in that hawt piece of doom-machine. Too bad she's just sitting there gathering simulated spacedust now since I'm driving that Strategic Cruiser.

Hang on a minute... How about I offload that Paladin on some hot-shot wannabe for heaps of ISK and then buy a few Pilot's License Extensions (PLEX) and use them to extend my EVE subscription?"

Indeed. A PLEX can be bought via the in-game market for ISK and then applied to add 30 days of game time to your account.
