Cosmetic only.

Any out-of-game actions that give bonuses in-game are bad. And not only for the game balance. Plexes are in the grey area, as they need to be sold to another player giving a benefit to more than just the one buying plex.
Cosmetic transactions I'm willing to accept as long as there is reasonable amount of content even without spending rl-iskies (ie. not "Do you want to wear something else than a burlab sack? Or maybe use something else than the standard character model? Pay us $2 and you can choose from our premium customer selection!"). A pink dress doesn't make you fly faster or shoot better no matter how pink you make it.

I am glad to see so many people are in favour of removing plexes from the game. Because that is what everyone who says no is in favour of, right?

Stop complaining about irrelevant stuff, cosmetic microtransactions stuff is far less important than current buying of ISK and chars with real money.

So cosmetic

No, but its too late now.

Pretty soon there will be new ships that can only be acquired by buying them from the CCP Store. Just like in that other space MMO.

Cosmetical only.

It's still a business, and doesn't affect the play experience a bit.

While I'm fine with cosmetic only I'm voting no as allowing any form of Microtransaction sets a really bad precedent

For the love of god no.

Even cosmetic things suck, because you lock out an entire part of the game experience for everyone except those who can afford it. I pay my monthly fee, makes sense that every aspect of the game is open to me (if not totally feasible; I'm not going to be officer-fitting a Nyx any time soon).

As easy as it is.

Introduce Microtransactions for clothing in Incarna and i will introduce the "EvE Nudist Movement". Lets see how funny parents will find it if they see their child docking in Jita with 800 Peeps on 4-4 showing their Boobs and Willys. "Son, i am not paying for this insult anymore".


On a more serious side:

I strongly believe that this is the absolute wrong way. Today its only for vanity goods, tomorrow its for skills, fancy weapons or rare ships? You just canīt be serious.

Absolutely NO!

It starts with remap for PLEX (which is an advantage and not some cosmetical stuff) and ends where?...just no...

If you really wanna do things like that,
let us buy those things for iskies.

But only stuff that has exactly NO gameplay effect!

Absolutely the worst thing that could ever happen to eve. The fact there are no micro transactions has been one of the very few reasons why players still play eve. I don’t want eve to become just another MMO.

Cosmetic Only.

I never log on to the ingame boards but this is potentially ridiculous. I was initially simply going to say no but I realize that if CCP commits to staying ONLY with cosmetic items, such as clothing for incarna characters, anybody rich or stupid enough to fund Eve with their money is fine by me. As soon as it approaches the realm of game-play impact, some of Eve's core fundamentals will be damaged.

Cosmetic Only (with reservations)

Actually, I hate ANY micro-transactions and/or cash shops but since they are a sign-of-the-times in MMOs and are pretty much becoming inevitable in every game whether old or new, then if they must be, let them be truly Cosmetic Only. Yeah, I did state that I support the use of PLEX for Neural Remaps but - 1) I don't believe that that feature is going to be as terrible as everyone seems to think it will be, and 2) that was before we learned that CCP is looking at other micro-transactions as well.

My guess is that these MTs are going to somehow hinge on the use of PLEX to open up premium shops of cosmetic 'goodies' for the new avatars since the PLEX are already in-game and are more-or-less an accepted feature. If I am wrong and they actually set up a cash shop where you must use your CC to buy some form of token for use in the shop, then I imagine that I will be leaving the game along with many others because that type of MT will inevitably lead to the purchase of grey-area items that could have an indirect impact on gameplay.

A far smaller advantage than buying isk and chars with real money, which is commonly accepted.
