    Default Benefits of subbing vs buying patron passes in the store?

    Im just curious what benefits there are to subbing as opposed to buying patron passes.

    It's more beneficial to buy patron passes because you get the loyalty for buying them and the loyalty for being subscribed too.

    Subbing will be cheaper. If you only want to 'sub' for a few days to a couple of weeks then get a patron pass. If your plat rich you could buy REX and use the credits for a patron pass and never pay for your sub again.

    Right. I see it as kinda lame that it is cheaper and more beneficial to buy a 30 day pass from the store than to subscribe per monthly basis here on the sight.

    Subbing is only cheaper if you sub for more than a month. It's actually cheaper to buy credits and pay for a 30 day pass via the store.

    Why do you see it as lame?

    They will change something, I have hesitated to comment too much on it but the ONLY subscription that is cheaper than buying patron passes is the 12 month one.

    If you just pick off cheap REX on the AH here and there then it is all free.

    They have to make subscriptions cheaper or give different (better) perks for being an actual subscriber and not just a patron pass buyer.

    Or more thanlikely they will nerf patron pass someway, more than likely taking away the 7K loyalty they give.

    Don't get me wrong, game isn't lame, it's awesome, but it makes no sense that buying a subscription here on the site should be more expensive than the very same thing through the store using credits.

    you all fail to realize this is how Eve-Online works as well.

    if you're good enough at the game you can be so Eve rich that you can use your credits to buy PLEX. which is used to pay for your sub. essentially making a sub only game. absolutely free.
