NO , or in the worst case , cosmetic only ... though that would be a really good isk sink , and there is no need for us to pay for clothes with REAL MONEY , when for the ships we pay with isk .

I am against Microtransactions. My primary thought of this is how it has effectively destroyed other games I used to play Team Fortress 2 comes to mind.

Now things I would like to see along this note though would be changing the transfer character, change character portrait, and other elements that already exist for purchase to be able to spend plex to get it the process done in addition to the current straight payment.

I'm against the principal of this, even for "Cosmetic" goods.

The only way I could be persuaded is to offer a 2 tier subscription method:

1 lower price + Micros = cosmetics from micros
1 standard price with no micros = free cosmetics

MTs are a RL money sink no sensible person needs. Isk MTs are the closest thing that should even be considered. In a space game, we really don't need cosmetic stuff, unless it's painting our ships (which isn't a good idea when you think about lag)

It's sad T'amber resigned and left the game, but I can understand that. People love the game, but T'amber clearly loved the game enough that he decided to protest their proposed MTs. I hope CCP realizes that's why he quit, because he needed to make them see that MTs are not the way to go

The game already has a monthly fee. Start to charge for expansions if you must - but in turn an expansion will have to have actual content and mechanics in it, not just some silly gimmick. But putting microtransactions into a game that already has a monthly fee, even if it is just cosmetic? No, no thank you.

Cosmetic only.

I'd rather say no, but if it has to go its for cosmetic only (and booze).

Cosmetic (however I feel cosmetic stuff should be able to be paid in isk as well as an isk sink).

As much as I would love attribute point remaps for PLEX, I dont think the total game population would benefit from it. Even though I REALLY REALLY REALLY would like it, I dont want to support it.

NO NO NO NO NO NO!!! please, no!

am i playin Battlefield Heroes right now?
do i need to purchase blonde hair with blue eyes and a tatoo to look as awesome as my CEO?
do i need to purchase uber guns or uber modules to have a chance to compete in a blob where i die anyway?

the reason i play EVE online is bacause it's not like any other game out there.
EVE online is a complex game for grown up mature people (well not always matuer :P)
please don't give this game mechanics you would only use in games designed for 6 year old girls
EVE online dosn't need micro transactions to make it interesting, and if it's about the money for CCP.
find a way to minimize the PLEX usages or whatever. (i don't know it's possible but it's just an idea)

it will seriously affect game play and i think allot of players will end up leaving or playing less. we are not 14 year old spoiled english brads. We are EVE players. we play EVE for a reason, and it's defo not micro transactions.

PS. i might have been reacting a bit over-date. but i was so against the idea i had to put my voice in here

Absolutely Not.
NO microtransactions.
I WILL NOT pay real money for vanity items.
or anything else.
except game time.
My subscription covers everything.
If it isn't enough, prioritize.

Keep your red panties in Sims Online!!!
It will be better to rebalance hybrids instead of "new pretty features" and pink pony in the EVE.

Well, if I were to go by just the first and last pages, I'd say it's pretty much a unanimous No!

Clearly, nobody is looking at other possibilities, or where CCP could go with this. Clearly, nobody is taking into account that new players, or more recent players could get a leg up benefit from the introduction of microtransactions, or they just don't really care.

Personally, I think the newb's should benefit from the option to microtransaction there way ahead a bit, and it's not like old players would suffer from it given they could do the same if they really thought they needed to. Yeah right.. Alliances that can afford to bid 30 Billion for a slot in Tounament IX really need a lot of help.

Heck, wonder about those guys that got access to original T2 BPO's, or have researched BPO's for Cap's and more to the point they can produce cheaper and faster than anyone else. No.. that's completely fair to any new player, especially those that are completely unavailable unless someone happens to decide to sell, and then the only ones that can afford it are the Big alliances with all the capital.

This game is already so balanced that a microtransaction for $50 to buy a Titan wouldn't damage it. That's sarcasm by the way, for those arrogant enough to assume everyone else is dimwitted. Trolls, I'm looking at you. Mostly.

Just to be different, and because I don't immediately assume CCP is stupid and microtransactions are going to completely obliterate everything, I'm going to vote Yes.


Just not cosmetic ones. That would lack integrity, as CCP has already stated that such things as character customization would always be free. The portrait and tweak part anyway. If someone wants to spend $10 on a new shirt or a pair of styling shades, then go for it.

What are you afraid of?

CCP must listen players sometimes. we have unbalance in ships. After they fix this i will say 'cosmetics only', but right now i want fixed game, not a glamour look or something.
Where is my EWFrigates?
Where is 4th bonus for Assault Frigs?
Where is all Hybrid boats?
Rokh can shoot at 200km but warp range 150 make this useless. Change role to rokh from supersniper to something usefull or make 250km warp range.
Why do we need Dreadnought if we have supercaps?
Counter for subcap blob is bombers, counter for supercap blob is... biger supercap blob. Where is rock-scissors-paper rule?
Where is missile-turrets models? Why do you hate Caldari so much?

When i play eve, i want actualy FLY on my ships, not paint and look at it. It's a bad joke, from CCP, and i read this like "You can't fly, but u can make them look better".

Maybe "cosmetic only", why not?
