"CONVERT PLEX TO AURUM" >>> "BUY CLOTHES IN STORE" >>> "SELL CLOTHES IN MARKETPLACE FOR ISK" >>> "USE ISK TO BUY PLEX" >>> ??????!!!!!?????

You guys still fail horribly at marketing... I know noone will read this but there is no other way to make that ugly and hated part of the cycle so obvious.

No, you get a fail for deleting microtransaction from the picture rather than replacing it with something smart. Sit down thank you.

what are they doing to eve? your turning this game into a joke!. dressing up avatars is something that little girls do with dolls, and there making people pay for it!. all ccp cares about is making money and yet they make game harder to make isk. most of the changes they make to game is to suit "THERE" needs regardless of how players feel about it.

lol.... wonder how long it will take before eve is transformed into WoW

makes me glad that i never spent money on this game other than the first 2 months

I have no problem with micropayments with a SCI-FI based game of quality, creative, and entertaining. Anyone knows of one?

My 2 cents: Many accounts are going away because of the perception of this. Why has CCP not even responded is what truely bothers me. The forums (imo) are for mostly older players and the feedback has been almost 100% negative, you would think CCP would respond.

For me; I have 3 accounts and didn't PLEX one already on purpose. Waiting to see how much worse this gets. Its sad really, what am I going to do with all the free time...

Think I'll buy a boat.

Very Happy
Hmmmm, changed my mind now after reading one of the post above. If corpse ladden ships are available, then I'm all for it!!!

Ok, forum trolls... blech. I don't even know where to begin.

YOU should be FORCED to pay for this glorious game, infact YOU should be forced to pay double for your stupid comments. I am SO tired of seeing people who couldn't even begin to design or code a piece of software like what EVE is, ***** and moan to no extent about every stupid little thing. Grow up! It's a great game!!! If you don't like it, or think you could do better; then why don't you? <-- Awww, it's b/c you can't. You have neither the skill required, nor the resources, nor the time it would take to create something even close to the glory of EVE. Stop flaming.

Would you like some cheese with that whine?!?!? Evil or Very Mad

Are these prices for real?!

I would suggest you page CCP Hammer urgently... When interviewed during the alliance tournament, he explained he had been "studing" World of Tanks and League of Legend recenlty. Ask him what kind of prices they practice, and compare to you 45 EUR monocle Rolling Eyes

So yeah, after the 3PP fiasco, $ for ships, and the price on these items. I have come to the conclusion that the people in power at CCP are either on some REALLY good drugs, are amazing trolls, or just plain ******ed.

Holy Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot!

Well, i've expected prices for fashion items to rise compared to what prices are on SiSi, but not this much! Tell me you're ****in' kidding with 4 plex for an ocular implant, please? You need to get your guys to check out what are prices for vanity items on other MT-enabled games (most of them are F2P, thus MT is the only income for them).

C'mon, guys, this is absolutely ridicilous.

CCP - You need a half-off sale, stat. The prices are a ****ing joke. Seriously, it's an obvious ****ing cash grab. Congrats on whoring yourselves out.


Not that I planned on ever buying anything as silly as a vanity item for RL money but I'd still like to say that the above statement accurately describes my opinion on this matter.

You used to be a bunch of cool freaks making a kick ass game for the sake of making a good game - and that's how you acted towards us, your customers. But recently you've been getting more and more business-y and clearly interested mainly in bleeding as much cash out of the game as possible. It makes me sad and vaguely sick to my stomach.

You lost a lot of the respect I had left for you today, CCP.

@Whoever came up with this idea and decided upon the prices: you (and people like you) are literally the reason our world is such a screwed up place. Crying or Very sad

You have redefined the standards of 10 out of 10 points for trolling. I cant wait to see what you guys come up with next.

Oh! I have it! Virtual beer for 7,100 Aurum! I think that would top even this.

I don't mind the existence of vanity items. I'd even likely buy some, at some point. Once we've got big common areas in the station and things to do there that are actually worth doing, yeah, I'll let you guys ding me for a pair of good-looking boots. I love the hell out of this game, I think that common areas in the major stations will add to the social aspect of the experience, and I'm willing to pay a little premium to look good while I do it.

But those prices are off by about an order of magnitude. Knock a zero off of all those and we've maybe got a deal one of these days.

I don't believe I need to lecture CCP on economics, since they have at least one economist on their staff. But maybe this will be educational for some other people in the forum: You will actually make *less* money charging 1.0 plex for a vanity widget (such as a jacket) than you would charging 0.1 for the same widget, because less than 1/10th of the number of people who would pay 0.1 will pay 1.0.

You are pricing yourself out of a market that you have a monopoly on. Think on that.

At first I laughed about the... preliminary (?) price for the monocle. Probably because i'd rather have a decent fit carrier instead, and some spare change. But when you think about it, it perfectly represents the the definition of a "Noble Exchange." The immensely rich have a new way to show off immense wealth.

Hey brother, can you spare a dime?

I think you summarized my thoughts exactly.

So here's my additional two cents.

On XBox Live, people pay 400 points (equivalent to $5.00 US Dollars) for full outfits to use on their Live avatars. Literally a full outfit - the head or helmet, the top and the bottom. That's $5 of real money - and that's STILL quite a bit of money to spend on digital vanity items.

I don't like it, but I accept it.

Expansions on XBox Live are usually 800 ($10) a piece. Expensive, but some are worth it - others aren't. I don't like it, but I accept it.

So here on EVE Online, a freakin' monocle that covers ONE eye (and that apparently isn't even permanent, but as mortal as your clone) costs at LEAST 4 units of PLEX just to purchase. That said PLEX can be used to pay for (as far as I know) 4 months of EVE, more than 1.5. billion ISK and be equivalent to about $80 US Dollars.

So, in essence, CCP is telling me that a MONOCLE is worth $80 REAL US Dollars?

No way in hell. I don't accept that.

CCP: your numbers are WAY off. Bring that number down - WAY down.
