Cosmetic only

If you have to do it, letting the little ***s and girls play with pics is fine but remaps or sp or ships or anything that effects game play is going too far.

No

it's a big step to introduce this, and a much smaller step to make it imho worse by selling usefull stuff and make it less of a sandbox, destroying a unique selling point of EVE.

Soft no.

I would be open to microtransactions if they were solely a means for new players to catch up - some sort of accelerated SP accrual. I don't mind plex for remap. However, based on the interview, microtransactions is going to end up being shiny ships, which is just terrible.

Hard no on cosmetic. That is just dumb, and creates a 2-tiered play experience with no upside.

Despite a pretty big outcry from CSM internally (with zero feedback from CCP on the matter) and clear player support AGAINST microtransactions, CCP is just going ahead with PLEX for neural remap in Winter Expansion.

I have zero faith that CCP will honor the statement of confining microtransactions to vanity items only. I can just imagine the "epiphany" that might be announced in a dev blog some fine day after microtransaction items become more commonplace (and I'm betting Incarna will be the breeding ground galore for that): "Oh hey! We just decided that to take control of the RMT situation where supercaps are being sold third-party, we'll just sell them ourselves! It's WIN WIN, guys! RMT'ers got no market and GTFO our game AND CCP makes more money to expand your virtual world even more. Yay!"

Because I don't trust CCP to keep their word on the matter of "vanity only" down the road, I vote a strong NO on the matter of microtransactions.

I'm bitterly disappointed in the lack of communication with CSM on this matter.

I'm not looking forward to the continuation of these player base angering trends, but I have a sick feeling in my stomach that they're only going to continue. Crying or Very sad

Hi, Cat here.

I jolly well say NO to microtransactions.

GTC/Plex was enough to swallow, but we accept it because the time you buy goes to another player. Character transfer / portrait swap were alread borderline. This is just money in CCPs pocket for bits in a database.

No

Terrible idea. Games that suck implement free to play models. This game does not suck. Just raise the subscription fee or something. If they raise it $1, that's an extra $300k/mo.

Fairly firm NO here.

Not inherently against cash for cosmetic changes (Which we already have) or character transfers (Also already available) but against most everything else, like name changes and the like. Especially against game-altering changes like race changes, SP purchasing, buying additional remaps, etc.

Is it too late to set up a booth and sell torches and pitchforks?

I would cheerfully pay an extra dollar or two per month for each of my 3 accounts, but I'll never pay even a penny for a microtransaction item.

Depends.

The PLEX system by itself is a kind of microtransaction system, but everyone likes it, CCP need to be very caution with this changes, and not giving any visible advantages for the one player over another. It's very easy to cross the invisible line, when money talks.

Right there with you, initially I was thinking microtransactions for incarna hats and shoes would 'okay', sort of, but the confirmation of plex for remaps shuts the door on any 'hope' I retained that it would be limited to silly cosmetic crap no one would need/miss. They easily can and probably will use MT to screw us over on incarna stuff just to cash in on a new player base drawn into the 'immersive' world of EVE now with DUST514!'.

No to MT.

CCP makes 4.5 mil per month from this game. They should be rolling in dough and have plenty of resources to make this game fantastic. Instead, they've released a patch for their patch for their patch. And what, from the user standpoint, did the first patch improve? Rockets? Hybrids? AFs? POSes? Treaties or sov or mothership balance? No. Nothing at all.

They're ****ing the money we do give them away on vampires and DUST.

I support the following transaction:

Sign a publishing deal with EA for your vampires game to give you some money so you can fix this one before the tailspin becomes irreversible.

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.


While the crowd sourcing proposal specifically states "more" microstransactions, the evils of PLEX are offset by the benefits of combating RMT and most are aware of the inherent pitfalls of this mechanic. If you can please edit your comment to include your vote of YES/ NO/ COSMETIC please, so that I can include you in the count.
