Please include YES, NO or COSMETIC ONLY on the first line
of your response so that I can add up the results easily.


You do not need to support this topic and all thumbs up will be ignored during the count


If you wish to comment please add it on the third line.
While this proposal will stay open, I will be compiling the results a week after Incursion is released.
Please be resonable - people are allowed their opinions and trolling is not necessary - there are many valid arguments for each side and there are infact more logical arguments for having microtransactions ingame.

example reasons to vote;
  • Vote No - you think that because you pay a set fee each month that you should have access to all the options and features ingame that everyone else gets

  • Vote Cosmetic - you think that the only microtransactions ingame should be those that allow you to buy items that effect nothing of consequence (such as plex for *boobies, or hats, nice clothes, nipples, etc) which do not effect anything (although they may restrict the sandbox and lessen the chances of more miniproffesions) but what something looks like and how many layers of clothes you wear when you play the game in the privacy of your own home...

  • Vote Yes - you do not mind 12yearolds stealing their parents money because they're so crap at the game that they need to buy more animals for their farm.. because you can then you blow em up and take all their stuff!!



Quote:
Just for clarification, the skillpoints CCP will be giving pilots to make up for the extended downtime in this case is not tied to microtransactions.

Editing to add this: We do not have plans to go microtransaction with EVE.


Quote:
No. There are no microtransaction plans, whatsoever. I wrote "in this case" because this extended downtime was an unusual situation. It's not every day we relocate our servers to a new facility.

Quote:
Are you trolling me bro? Cool
Our business model isn't changing, you all have nothing to be concerned about.

Quote:
Yeah, we are looking at introducing virtual goods within the game, but we feel those things should be vanity items rather than those that give you a clear benefit over other players in-game.
That said, we are introducing a feature this expansion [Incursion], that does allow you to re-map your attributes using Pilot Licence Extensions, which are bought both in-game and on our website. PLEX represents 30-days subscription within the game.
We will evolve just like everyone else. We will certainly not become a dinosaur. That has not been our style.




Thanks,

ccp probably has difficulty fueling growth from subscriber count so maybe theyre trying to get more money from existing subscribers. this is a bad idea and is going to end up corrupting the fun of the game.


i dont have a problem with the micro-transaction sort of things ccp has now. character transfer, portrait change, and plex for gametime, that sort of stuff is fine because it doesnt really require you to do this to get an ingame advantage, or else is something you would be paying anyways. i don't even have a problem with the cosmetic, hats and stuff. but there is no guarantee that ccp will make items that are not purely cosmetic but are also useful in pvp or pve or stuff like that. even if the current people have pure intentions there is no guarantee that the people that replace them will.

so i'm saying no, let's have the cosmetic stuff only, but i dont really believe for a second that CCP will stop at cosmetic items.

How much is there left to add? We already have plex for isk / isk for almost anything, so we might as well go all in- I'd like to see a plex payment option for character transfers, portrait swaps and pizza.

[Cosmetic Only]

Depends.

Microtransactions for portrait/plastic surgery or other aesthetical changes up to and under special circumstances including namechange - maybe.

Microtransactions for vanity items in game that do not yield any practical advantage - maybe, but I'd rather see the development time for that go to things that are actually useful.

Microtransactions for items/changes that give the buyer an actual ingame advantage over others - clearly not. That shouldnt be the case in any game, and even less in one thats subscription-based too.

No.

At least not for anything that affects in game performance - remaps do affect in game performance.

No.

CCP state in an interview that they are planned for only cosmetic effects yet the first instance will deliver an ingame advantage ( PLEX for remap ).

This is my concern as well.

Although the waters are a bit muddy (you can use PLEX to pay for a set of +5's, for example), the proposed PLEX for remaps is taking it a step further, as (for example) you can't lose a remap by getting podded.

I am concerned about the slippery slope -- where does it end? PLEX for Titans?

No.

Absolutely not. EVE is a wonderful game. It goes beyond being a game even since its depth is unparalleled and can be used to study many faucets of human behavior. Please, CCP, do not ruin what you have with what will surely be micro-transactions of escalating value. They will debilitate the game and destroy everything you built. Keep the game as it is. Leave the micro-transactions for your other two products (Dust and WOD).

Cosmetic Only



CCP please do not destroy your own game. Many people play it because this is the "wine" of MMOs - they do not want to play cheap beer in cardboard boxes. Please clear the $ signs out of your eyes and stay true to your fans.

No.

Even cosmetic micro-transactions will inevitably lead to micro-transactions that give tangible in-game advantages. Hell, the very first implementation of this is something that will give a tangible in-game advantage. Do not put micro-transactions in EVE, they will ruin all that the game is.

That's the best analogy of EVE there is. EVE is classy and somewhat exclusive because of the people who choose to play it. This is EVE's best and most valuable asset. Adding micro-transactions will alienate your core audience, and turn EVE into a run-of-the-mill MMORPG. I don't get why CCP would want to mess with EVE's proven to be successful formula.

If they add micro transactions, they can kiss my credit card transactions good bye.

kudos CCP, youve been slowly killing off your loyal customer base to attract new phantom players that never came, and now you want to squeeze what little you have left?

ships you can buy if you use plex? I mean trade plex for ships (special ships you cannot buy in market).

No

Even if it will only be cosmetic to start with, sooner or later management will "force" features ingame that will make a difference regarding gameplay. And this will give players who are willing to fork out $ for the game an even bigger advantage then they allready have.

Absolutely efinently not, we've already seen something like - look at MYSPACE, wonderful idea, then they gave in to management which emphasized cashflow and instead focusing on the core of the product they've overloaded it with cashflow generating features. The result ? Myspace is dead to facebook.
