i already bought a full set of new clothes and that ocular thingy, because i can

you DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT !


Now don't you look silly for paying so much for internet clothes, whether you did it with ISK via in game plex exchange or buying the plex directly. Even if I was the richest man in the world, I wouldn't pay these obscene prices for internet clothes.

Dude, they stole 5b of british citizens moneh and now they have found another ingenious way of stinging us.

I supported MT but not at the price scales they have implemented, in fact I would go as far as saying I would happily shell out $42 or more for a full Skill Respec but not for a fckin vagina item or w/e u call them.

It's true. CCP is in the help channel trying to justify the pricing. I feel kind of sorry for the CCP peeps who got that job.

I'm not the kind of guy to play dress-up, but I was hoping to use Incarna to get my GF into playing EVE. I think that, however, as soon as she sees how ridiculous the prices are for the pair of boots she wants, she's going to ragequit.

I have a graduate degree in biochemistry. It doesn't negate the fact that there is no clear rationale for having two separate currencies to buy vanity items -- especially when you can only get AUR thru plex. That's either 400 mil ISK or 15 USD for an item in game that can be seen only by you. Ridiculous, no?

Screw vanity items, I could care less.

Telling people I play EVE however, once this thing is gonna make every news outlet ridicule this game...

So ... people complain that those vanity items are extremely expensive.

And guess what comes next?

CCP's biz devs will decide that it is too much RL money for a vanity item ... and they will add game changing functions to them: better attributes for faster learning, more damage for your weapons etc.

Mark my words!

Wait, it gets better:

[00:44:41] CCP Zinfandel > Some people treat EVE Online not as a video game but as a hobby.
They enjoy investing in their hobby and find that it makes them feel more connected with their hobby.
We want to support that for those players who want it.


If that quote is real, then I am simply speechless.
So much delusion in one sentence,
makes one wonder if the buy out of White Wolf brought in a heap of scientologists...

Given the economic situation in many countries,
the pricing on these items is not only unreasonable its even offensive.

Even if there are players in the game,
who are ready to spend insane amounts of real life cash for pure fluffy spacepixels,
what about the absolute majority of your customers that feel offended by these prices ?

Can you put a price on good-will and a positive image ?
Seem you are about to find out and pay it in full.

For the first time since Empyrean Age... I'm actually quite dissappointed.

This could have been a fantastic ISK sink in-game. Or perhaps discounted by PLEX. But to completely commit this to real currency at these prices... the lack of features such as this was something that differentiated you from the others, CCP.

But hey; You know this MT stuff was made for those rich russians who are actually willing to pay for "th3 c00l 5tuffz!!" and don't care about the price..
