Notice ARX and Frontier Points Conversion

It must be frustrating not to know which one to complain about yet.

Posts like these really aren't any better than the ones you're making fun of.

Frontier post an ambiguous notice and when people ask for clarification they are obviously toxic trolls, right?
 
there is already an unofficial exchange rate online for cash for credits.

Instead pay to win . We get paid to play :)
 
Hello Commanders,

With the upcoming September Update we wanted to take a moment to explain some important information about the Frontier Store and ARX when they're introduced to the game.

Purchasing Cosmetics
  • ARX can be purchased, as well as earned by simply playing the game, to acquire Game Extras such as Paint Jobs, Ship Kits, Bobbleheads and more!
  • You will no longer be able to purchase Game Extras using current payment methods and instead will require ARX, available in a number of packs (below).
  • Prices for PC ARX packs (below) are as follows:
    • 5000 ARX - 2.99 GBP / 3.49 EUR / 3.99 USD
    • 8400 (+420 bonus) ARX - 4.99 GBP / 5.99 EUR / 6.99 USD
    • 16,800 (+900 bonus) ARX - 9.99 GBP / 10.99 EUR / 12.99 USD
    • 25,500 (+1,300 bonus) ARX - 14.99 GBP / 15.99 EUR / 18.99 USD
    • 51,000 (+3,000 bonus) ARX - 29.99 GBP / 32.99 EUR / 39.99 USD
    • 85,000 (+15,000 bonus) ARX - 49.99 GBP / 54.99 EUR / 59.99 USD
  • Prices for console ARX packs may vary market to market based on platform specifications.

Frontier Points
  • When logging in after the September Update is released, any outstanding Frontier Point balance will be converted into ARX with the following transfer rate (based on the best value ARX package): 1 Frontier Point = 20 ARX
  • Commanders will also receive an email about this conversion.
Frontier Store Downtime
  • In order to prepare for these changes, the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Frontier Store will be offline from 16 September at 07:00 (UTC) and go live when the September Update has been deployed.
If you have any questions about ARX, please let us know below or consult or FAQ available here.
so you go the Eve online route ARX=PLEX
 
I wonder if the free 400 weekly ARX have to be spent weekly(probably not enough to buy anything so we have to top up with real £££) and if not spent do we lose them or does it just keep rolling over
 
Has anyone ever noticed that when Frontier do a reveal video(ARX in this case) they almost always reveal nothing and leave you with more questions than answers, what did they actually reveal? That we can earn them and buy packs, we've known that for ages

How many we get per week, what they relate to in real money, stuff like that. Not everything - but they may reveal that next Wednesday ;)

Gotta remember - there are more questions than answers :D
 
OK, Let's start at the beginning - what are Frontier Points? I've been playing ELITE over 4 yr now, maybe I missed something, or passed over the info I should have known. - I use the store for cosmetics each time I add another ship to my collection so maybe it's the amounts I paid for those. As far as I know, I don't have any Points to convert.
 
Will these Arx be purchasable through Steam?
They're on the store in-game via a Game Extras option in the main menu, so I assume that we all buy them there no matter whether we got the game via Steam or direct from Frontier. It must either take a credit card number or connect to your account on the platform. That would be either Frontier or Steam but it will be transparent from our point of view until we get the receipt.

Frontier don't have my credit card details, so I dare say we will find out on Wednesday if they have messed up those of us who don't have keys.

Having spend well over... well let's just say A LOT of money (three zeroes figure total) in the FDEV store overall, I'm just happy I'll be able to get those last few things I don't own yet for free :)

Frontier Points are the currency that console users buy cosmetics with and have done for a long time. Those of us on PC haven't had such a thing until now. That means, because card transactions are expensive, that we haven't been able to spend less than £3. The console users have been able to do so and therefore they have been able to buy single paint-jobs and so forth whereas those of us on PC have had to buy them in packs of six. The new currency means that we can now buy cosmetics that are cheaper -- for example, maybe £1 for a single paint-job rather than £3 for six. (They haven't released the prices yet so that's a wild guess.)

Frontier points are what console players buy with real money from their console store which converts it into frontier points so we can buy stuff from frontier store with said points
