Loot Game Time in EVE Online
Eve Online has always come up with some unique conventions in MMOs. For example, allowing players to buy game time for cash, and trade it with other players. These items are called “Pilots License EXtensions,” or PLEX.
Since being introduced, PLEX could not be removed from the station they were redeemed at. This was done to keep fear of losing PLEX in transport from crippling the market for it. Now that the market is up and running, CCP is about to remove all transport restrictions on PLEX.
If you’re transporting PLEX, you had better keep an eye open at all times. There are plenty of folks who lay in wait, scanning ships for worthwhile targets. Gankers are bad enough, but gankers who can loot free game time? These guys will be hard to fend off!
If you don’t believe me, just imagine if rogues could loot game time in WoW. Yeah, I thought that would do it.
