Yup was planning on having some fun with the plexes I've had stockpiled but I'll just continue to play for free for the next 5 years instead of feeding the cash cow

Who do CCP think they are? Apple or something?

Probably about 10 times the price I was expecting, at 350 a pair of trousers/jacket that's only a 10th of a plex. I would even consider doing it for a novelty here and there though at these prices... Neutral

Edit:

I can actually buy a wardrobe of clothes from matalan for the price of the monocle.

This is pretty damned ridiculous.

Play eve for a month for free or buy a women's "impress" dress skirt?

The prices for these "virtual goods" are a joke.

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.

I am not often harsh,
but this time I have to ask:

ArrowAre you utterly mad ?


$60 for the monocle... (12.000A/7000A*$35)
$15-20 for one pice of cloth...


Store Prices:
1 Plex = 3.500 Aurum

Prices in Store
3.200 - 4.400 Aurum for 1 piece of cloth

With Boots for 1.000 - 2.200 on the low end and
a CyberMonocle for 12.000 Aurum on the high.

Shocked Just Shocked

Utterly, utterly idiotic pricing. I daresay *beyond* greed.

I hope to hell someone just put 1 too many zeroes on those values.

Came here to post the same thread, 4 plex for a glass eye? Are you insane?!?

Vanity items should be in the 100s range if that!

Bad move CCP, and I've stood up for you in the past.

Have to agree here. Pretty crap selection, and even crappier prices. So who's going to be the first to buy?

Hmm... 4 * 17.5 $ = 45 $ Twisted Evil ???
Are you sure that's not just a decimal point ? As in, "twelve point zero zero zero AUR", or 0.06 USD ?
If not, what the bloody hell costs the equivalent of over 1 bil ISK at current ISK-to-PLEX prices ?

Jesus Christ, I think this is the first time I've ever said this but I completely agree with you.

What the hell, is this some kind of really bad joke?

CCP You are a joke, plain and simple.

12k aurum for an eye patch? 3600 aurum for a shirt?

a virtual god damn pixel shirt? you want 3600 aurum = 1 plex = 19.99 euro

This is not EVE Online but

Prada online

wtf and ffs

remember guys,

its a hobby.

i mean, we all like to spend cash on our hobbies right? am i right? I too can afford to buy 4 plexes ($60) just for some internet pixels. You must all live in a third world country or something, or you should quit your low paid bank manager job and get a real job.Twisted Evil

coming up next, you can buy a shop in a station for only $15,000 or 1000 plexes. Rent will be 10 plexes per month ($150) since CCP seem to think they can apply real world monetary values that are attached to goods sourced from finite materials for make believe pixels genrated on a computer.

WTF is next?Shocked

BOYCOTT

Actually I'm laughing at the subtle sales technique.

1 PLEX = 3,500 Aurum aaaand.. wait for it..
"Women's 'Impress' Skirt": 3,600 Aurum!
