No! Bad CCP, BAD!!

Edit: this looks like a last ditch effort to find a final source of income before a company goes out of business.

No. Not even for cosmetics.

tl;dr:
"Do not give the devil a foothold". I'm not saying Micro transactions are evil. But giving this a foothold in the CCP mindset will only lead to more and more of it. Also, there's an old saying... "You can take them out of Egypt, but you can't take Egypt out of the Israelites". So of course if CCP introduces micro-transactions of anykind, the player-base in general is going to revolt. EVE was built upon $15/month to do whatever you want and anything where real life money is involved is going to be a *very* thorny issue. I'd rather leave micro-transactions for another game entirely, such as World of Darkness. Dust514 is tapping into EVE and if it's on a Micro transaction model, then there's going to be constant division and controversy, possibly even a "rich kid" elite force that makes them very tough- not because of skill, but because of deep pockets. We wage enough daily battles trying to earn a good income. I really don't need some rich, super-upgraded noob to rub that fact in my face every night. One of the great things about EVE is that everyone starts the same, like a chess game. It's about strategy, planning, and taking advantage of weaknesses.
- What if, during a match, we could pay to get our queen back? or upgrade the knight with more maneuvers? What if our opponent had a parent who didn't want them to spend money to upgrade their chess pieces? Is the game really fair or balanced?

Thumbs up = thumbs down to MTs, wierdly enough… Razz

…or maybe just for vanity items: buff pirates by making it easy for them to know who has the really big wallets to rob. Twisted Evil

It would ruin the sandbox (plex-selling is bad enough)

RL money for game time only. Not even for cosmetic items.

-> CCP should focus on creating a game that is fun to many people, not on melking the cows by creating in-game assets that sell well.

NO. EVE was advertised and sold as a subscription game, not a RMT game. If you change things now, you risk alienating your player base and losing money. Ask Sony about SWG, once you alienate your current player base you are done; the game will slowly downsize.

If CCP needs more money "to expand services", raise the subscription rate by a dollar, it's much easier and you don't have to worry about abuses or unfair advantages, or players being annoyed by the system (which we will be).

Look for other means to raise revenue. Make/Sell (better than currently available) Killboards/Forums on Eve Gate, charge for API services, have a 'premium' website that gives paying members some inside info and insight, look outside the game for those revenue streams.

No.

I don't even like the PLEX system
Why is CCP talking about adding a new way for people with more real life money to get advantage in the game when they should be working on ways to stop the issues that already exist like macro miners and macro ratters and LAG.

Not sure what I mean by that, since I jumped to the last page without reading anything else, so don't read too much into it.
