For the longest time subscriptions for UK players have only been payable in Euros, however at EVE Fanfest 2012 CCP Games has announced that beginning May 1st, UK players will be able to pay for their EVE Online subscriptions in pounds sterling. This change results in an estimated 20% price reduction, and has been requested by the UK community for quite some time.
“UK players have been an important part of the EVE community from the very beginning, organizing some of the very first player meets, being at the forefront of EVE’s PvP alliances and expanding the EVE experience with such creations as the epic “Clear Skies” movies. The enthusiasm and creativity of these players has only underlined the importance of the UK market as we enter a very exciting time for the EVE Universe.” - Jon Lander, senior producer for EVE Online.
The regularly monthly subscription fee will stand at £9.99 for UK players.
