Not following the path of other MMO's is what makes EVE such a refreshing change. Selling GTC's/PLEX is one thing, they not only provide ISK to the seller but provide a means for another player to add game time, microtransactions do not.

i will not pay double for a game

micropayment or standard contract

both in the same system is monetization which i will support with canceling of 4 accounts

im more willing in paying +1$ per account per month and get all the stuff for isk´s and be able to design things myself


im paying already enough for this game.

if micropayment will effect any graphical or ingame expirience im gone instantly

micropayment for changing my char-picture or charname, or deleting my company history: YES !!!!
like paying for transfering an account. the problem in this system is, that a plex is relativly worthfully with around 15$ so there has to be a second money system, which i will not support.
there should be no way that eve uses more money than subscription from ingame. think of childs, which dont know what they are doing,

Eve's is the most persistent of online worlds, and that is part of its attraction. Our destinies are a result of in-game actions - ours or others'. Micro-transactions will further diminish this illusion, far more than PLEX and metagaming already do, and thusly detract from the uniqueness of EVE (which you'll have to agree would be detrimental to EVE and thus to CCP's financials in the mid to long term, since much of EVE's success stems from it being so different from what other MMOs have to offer).

Also, vanity items are just as much part of the EVE economy as anything else. If somebody absolutely must have a Silver Magnate, let them buy PLEX for isk and then spend it. The same might be true for silver sunglasses, a different hair style or just a new mug shot, but since such will not be realistically priced at the level of a 50m space frigate, there shouldn't really be any point for it since an average Lvl 1 mission should easily pay for the most luxurious of makeovers.

I vote NO

let stuff cost isk instead

No please.

I'd rather pay more in monthly fee than have microtransactions.
Let things cost ISK instead. You can already buy ISK with money through the PLEX system if you don't have enough ISK.

Cosmetics are pretty important part of any game(ccp has spend alot of effort to update eve graphics overtime) and for pricey sub fee, i feel that i should be getting best possible EVE experience that devs can offer.

Im not going to pay both, sub fee and microtransactions and if micros are idroduced to the game and i want that content, but dont get it for sub fee, i'm not going to pay either sub fee nor microtransactions.

Isk? Yes.

I'm not ashamed to say that I have sold a few PLEX to get the ISK I can't get due to limited play-time.
Use ISK, this microtransactions thing stinks.

Really CCP shouldnt have even let the players decide on this. Just implement payed Cosmetic changes. Like Race/bloodline changes for your worthless Avatar. or maybe even a new hat...

No. In the most emphatic terms, NO.

As for cosmetic only...NO. That starts down the slope of new features double dipping into the pocketbook.

We already have PLEX as a way to spend real money for things in game. I don't want to see more.

If CCP wants money, have NPC's sell stuff for ISK. The people that want the vanity stuff, will then either earn the isk, thereby sustaining the economy of EVE, or buy PLEX and sell for ISK, giving CCP money. I imagine a NPC selling some bling for 100M isk. People who really want it, but can't come up with the money, will buy PLEX. Are PLEX sells down? Since PLEX prices are not up, I'd say the demand and supply are fairly constant. We probably need a new money(ISK, not dollar) sink, to stimulate the buying and selling of PLEX, and vanity items would do nicely. High sec Carebears need a money sink. null sec already has one with the massive destruction of ships.

Yes, because this telling people how you want them to answer the poll is useful in making CCP listen to you. /sarcasm

Honestly when I think of microtransactions I think of bad games, and EVE is not that. Please don't cheapen EVE with them. It will hurt my soul.

Posted - 2011.02.09 21:32:00 - [1223]

Yes for cosmetics.
