I agree with this the prices are just way too high i would be hard pressed to buy something like that IRL for 45 bucks but in a game you have to be ****ing joking.

The whole "Aurum" scheme is to catch up to the Farmville vidiots who spend real money to buy useless virtual crap. It's a model that works because CCP (et al) know there's people out there with more money than sense (like the 1 week noobs buying GTC, selling, and picking up a Mach or CNR).

I truly don't understand why CCP rushed to get this obviously flawed "update" out without using it. Can they *really* say they think it's worth putting out there are the flagship product?!?!

Once again, CCP, I'm available for hire as a QA Supervisor, cuz you guys obviously need one.

Yea, so.


Normally I stay off the CCP bashing mainly due to the fact that I am hopelessly addicted to their terrible game.




But christ on a crutch man what the ****, has somebody over there carried a 0 or something somewhere?

Seriously... How bad is CCP for money ? This NEX prices are ridiculous...

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 ?


Confirming there are 8 items to start, with prices of 1-12k Aurum each, with 1 PLEX being 3500 Aurum. So yeah, this is pretty insane. Also these are destroyed on pod death right?

To quote a friend in game "You can literally clothe yourself in real clothing for that money"

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


oh, and remember you get 3500 aurum for a plex, so you need 2 plexes for this = 40 euro :P

think ill just go to austin reed myself

For that kind of money I want my glass eye to shoot out my guns and kill multiple targets before coming back...

Wait... scratch that...

I'm not falling for it.

Lower the damn price!

I almost don't believe this... Aur work out at about 90~120k isk per unit, based on current TQ prices for plex...
12,000 AUR comes to a conservative 1.1 Billion isk... for an eyepatch???
I was expecting prices in the low tens of AUR...
I wasn't going to pay that, CCP has to be off its rocker if its going to charge more than one plex per item.

This is the kind of stuff that should of been prevented from the start. The bright side is at least there are no major game changing items (yet). I hope it stays that way.


But seriously, 60 bucks for a monicle, 15-20 for certain items of clothing?

Plex is better used for what it's first purpose was. Which was to extend game time. Not to cash it in for stupid crap like this.

Some people have more money than sense. Most businesses have a special place for them, airlines call it 'first class', but you'll see them in Eve buying this kind fluff. There is nothing about this game - or any other - that requires all players have equal access to stuff. If you don't like it, don't buy it, it's a market.

Clearly this was designed as an isk sink from the start and I do not think CCP realistically thinks people will BUY plexes to pay for this garbage. If they do then please stop by my place so I can smack you in the head repeatedly with a sledge hammer.

This is most likely just to siphon isk out of the market as CCP seems to have been doing since the 0.0 and mission nerf

if that's the case then their must be an unbelievable amount of plex sitting around unused for them to sell any noticeable amount of clothing.
If they want most players to customise their chars then the price needs to be 3 orders of mag lower...

I am wondering if this is part of CCP's protect the market strategy... start them off ridiculously expensive then drop the price slowly till people start buying at an acceptable rate?

lol wtf are you smoking ccp? you actually think 4 plex's for an 'Looking Glass Ocular Implant (right/gold)' is a micro transaction,

I thought the whole point of Aurum was for microtransactions. These prices are high enough to be regular transactions.

Dear CCP,
$45 for a piece of clothing?

To play devils advocate here, how snazzy would these items be if everyone could sport them at once. Do we want the item to become so popular that those NOT wearing them are the cool kids ?

Sorta like when only select minmatar could wear sunglasses...those were the cool kids. Then WHAMO, everyone can wear sunglasses!

Now, sunglasses are no longer cool.

On the flipside, at least they won't go away after you're podded.

Allegedly, NOT ANYMORE.
You keep them (the ones you are actively wearing) when you get podded (or, should I say, you get issued new ones), but they remain on the old clone body if you clonejump.
They can only be destroyed if you carry them in the cargo when the ship blows up.
It was a dev response in another recent thread.

If sold a parrot and eyepatch, i think they would still sell for that price.
