Summary[edit]

Accounts always expire in the worst possible point of time. They usually do it completely unexpectedly. There is nothing more annoying than missing some organized event, a good fleet battle, the expiration of a crucial contract or a nice logon trap because of suddenly expired account.

The introduction of pilot licenses made this problem even more critical, as CONCORD Pilot Licenses can only be bought while the account is active, and those who pay for their game time that way are hit hard with unexpected expirations.

Solution[edit]

Solution is simple: add EVE subscription expiration date and time to the character selection screen so that players are more aware of this very important date and can make sure to buy GTCs or arrange money to their credit cards for the time the account expires.

Pros[edit]

  • Less unexpected expirations
  • More income for CCP (less idle time between subscriptions)

Cons[edit]

  • I offer 1 ISK to anyone who can come up with a con
