Look at all the recent user records. Now imagine if we could step out of our pods and

- visit special agents in stations that arent registered on any networks
- gamble together for isk
- play strategy games with other players
- have a drink
- dress up with the latest fashion

Now THAT would drag alot of people into eve. This year would about be the very right time to finally unleash Incarna.....

The lack of avatar representation of players ingame puts off a lot of would-be EvE subscribers. If CCP really knew by how much, Incarna would've been released a long time ago.

That's not a shot at CCP because I really do enjoy this game. It's just that having a physical representation of yourself ingame really means a lot to players. It builds attachment to their characters and achievements.

Representation by spaceships just doesn't cut it for most MMO gamers.

This is going to be one of those things where, after it becomes hugely successful, the devs smack themselves in the forehead and ask why didn't they do this sooner.

You can already get drunk, gamble and play strategy games with other players in EVE...and drinking IRL >>> drinking an imaginary drink and then going har-de-har guys I am drunk har har, I'm so funny.

If you think a substantial number of people are going to subscribe and stay subscribe to EVE solely because of Incarna, then you are delusional. Incarna will be nice and all, but you'll be bored within a week tops.

As long as you can't type /dance I'm happy. That would kill EvE for me. /slap would be nice. but /hug, /kiss and /shy would have me cancel the subscription!

Oh yes fiashionistas! You too can set up your own shops and sell clothing items you have made yourself. Fashion parades, magazines and fashion ads on those little tv screens near gates will become the norm.

Maybe new markets will open up. Like refining frozen corpses to extract sinew with which to weave into the lastest fashion cloth...

Who knows? Who cares? We will all look fantastic darlings!

look, if i'm lending my name to this expansion, it better have very small amounts of barbie-esque dressup and very large amounts of exotic dancers, mindless violence, drug use, crime, gambling, and other generally awesome things, even if they're all pretend

It's just not the same without the mindless violence. How am I to teach people respect if I can't properly have them executed for cutting in line at the local hot dog stand?

Since they're only using half your name, they'll deliver on half your requests. You'd better hope they pick the good stuff. ;)

The guy CCP hired to design clothes for our avatars has previously designed shoes made of whale ********. I kid you not.

"These are size 8, or if you rub them, size 13."

The one and only reason that I have any desire to walk in a station is to find and subsequently beat the ^&%$* out of the docking manager Scotty.

You have NO idea how many ppl don't play this game simply because there's no avatar. I have 5 friends who all tried this game who all didn't want to sub because of lack of avatar. How ever many ppl you can find that don't care I bet I can find 10x more that DO care.

We do not understand your stressed comment on the forums, our current expansion is working as intended.

Now if you fear that the avatars will look dull because they can be covered..you need to broaden your horizons and explore the world of latex.

This mirrors my experience also. Obviously anyone playing EvE now doesn't care that much about having an avatar. The point is to attract those for whom it is important.

In any case, as I said in the previous thread: EVE needs more things to do than just fly spaceships. Flying spaceships is awesome, dont get me wrong, but that will get old after a while. Incarna isn't just about attracting new players; it's also about enticing old players to stay a little longer.

I cant wait for it, its definately something EVE has been missing....

but.

I like to whine... alot.

And I'd much rather they make the game work properly with the players its got before attracting even more ways to make it crash.

WOW makes billions of dollars over the fact a high proportion of players like to dress their dollies in the latest gear. I know it's weird to the rest of us but the game itself is extremely easy and challenge is not the main reason people play that game anymore. The whole of the last WOW expansion was about that fact which is why some of us left the game for good as all challenge was removed so everyone could dress up the way they wanted with no effort.

EVE has no fluff at all and even a small bit would benefit the game as long as it complements the rest of it rather than replaces.

From everything I have heard they ARE aware of that. (besides its kind of hard for them to miss that point, its aparently brought up that this is a Sci fi MMO where the players are little more than eggs that spatter when poped. . .)

but from what I have read in there opinion

(1) the people who can do both the avatars and and animation of said avatars tend to also have other jobs that are a bit higher in priority

and

(2) the people who have the skills and time have aparently been doing dust. . .

pun intended.

Instead of walking in stations lets put in what every space fan wants.

The ability to enter planets and go exploring. WOuld open a new avenue in PVP as well.
