What Is PLEX?
PLEX is used for a wide range of features and services for EVE Online both in-game and out. The two most popular are selling PLEX for a big stack of in-game ISK and buying PLEX with your character’s ISK to pay for game time.
Over the years, we’ve made more features and events obtainable through PLEX, making it worth your while to always have the power of PLEX at your side.
How to use PLEX
PLEX can be used in Account Management and in-game. By using the Account Management website, pilots can apply PLEX to reactivate a disabled account or spend it on a variety of game and account related services.
When purchasing Character and Account Services with PLEX simply select PLEX as payment method.
If you want to use your PLEX in-game, you will need to claim it from the Redeem Items system before you can use it.
Trade on the EVE market
In need of a few hundred million ISK? PLEX is actively traded on the EVE market, with prices varying from system to system.
It’s common in MMOs for some players to end up with more cash on their characters than they know what to do with. In EVE Online, you can turn that extra ISK into 30 days of game time by purchasing PLEX from other players on the EVE market.
PLEX can be used to pay for services such as training multiple characters, transferring characters between accounts and resculpting your character’s physical appearance.

Top customer reviews
Now, that doesn't mean you're going to get blown up right when you leave the station, even though that is the impression you get from reading some other reviews. No, instead you will be in high security space and relatively safe. I say relatively safe because every cubic meter of New Eden is PvP, however, that doesn't mean you will be attacked. There are different security levels for each system. Levels 1.0 through .5 are considered high sec and generally safe, unless you're carrying high value cargo or mining (some people have a fascination with ganking players who are mining). In high sec, there are NPC security forces called CONCORD that will come to your aid if you're attacked by another character. They aren't always quick but either way they will kill the aggressor. Why does this matter? Simple: when your ship gets destroyed in New Eden, either by a NPC, another players, or even by your own doing, you lose your ship and everything on it (you can go back to loot and salvage it but that is a different topic and you aren't likely get all of your cargo back anyway). So, an attacker will lose their ship and therefor will likely only attack you in high sec for two reasons: 1) You have high value cargo and s/he and his/her fleet (group) want to take it from you, or 2) S/he's bored and doesn't care if s/he loses a ship.
EVE Online is a good game with good graphics, regular updates and free expansions (these aren't normal expansions where they add playing area but more of game mechanic changes, updated graphics, new ships, new items, etc). It does have a learning cliff (yes, learning cliff, not learning curve) but there are plenty of players and corporations that are willing to help you learn, as long as you aren't begging. And no, it isn't hard getting into a newbie friendly corporation. Asking for help is OK, begging like a newb isn't.
There are a lot of different paths you can follow including PvP, running missions (quests), mining, manufacturing, trading and hauling to name a six. I spend most of my time trading, hauling, salvaging, exploring (yes, you make money exploring) and mining. Boring to some, not to me.
Give the 14-day free trial a run. You'll either love it or hate it but either way, give it a chance.
Note: the people who complain about being killed by other players more than likely traveled to low or null sec (anything with .4 security through -1.0) so they had it coming. Going to low or null sec with a starter ship is asking to be killed. Those who complain that they couldn't figure out how to play didn't run through the tutorials. And finally, those who say that they couldn't figure out how to complete the tutorials without having to search online for answers either didn't completely read the tutorials or have issues comprehending them. They hold your hand pretty well during the tutorials.
