you realize you can buy a plex on the market right?


Hmm..let's see. 1.6 billion isk for a monocle or a carrier/dreadnought. That's a really tough decision.


if you want to have it, you have to buy it for the price.

you know thats how it works in RL boy.

So any guesses on how much a ship paint job will be? ugh


Well over 9000 if you ask me :p


I really do hope they fire whomever had this brilliantly stupid idea immediately. Completely insane, stupid, and wholly horrible addition to Eve. Pretty much took a great game idea, turned it on its head, shoved it back up its own ass, and then spit it out for breakfast.

lol And what would you know about real life? With a name like "COMEATMEBRO IMHERE" you're 15 and pay for EVE with your parent's credit card. I'm probably old enough to be your dad, boy.

The other thing is I thought Capsule pilots were a small and elite group and a single Isk was meant to be serious money for normal people. Yet their quarters look divey and a pair of pants is hundreds of millions of Isk? Doesn't make any sense at all.

It means that saving the universe from pirates earns you a tiny percentage of a pair of Jeans? We need a minimum wage apparently.

That and I'm still wondering how my ship gets out of the dock.

You know, this is a pretty good joke, CCP.

I mean, unless it isn't a joke. And then it's funnier. My view is in line with pretty much everyone here. Were they actually microtransactions, and not ones that were worth more than the initial game purchase by a factor of 2.5, you'd have a potential sale out of me. The clothes are actually quite nicely made, the good, hard work put into them is quite apparent, but do you really think you will get a return on your costs at these sorts of prices? All that leads to, really is...

Well, I guess CCP did say something about the price of vanity items should cover the cost it takes to make them... Guess I did not expect that every single player would have to pay the full coverage.

While I now certainly have no plans to ever use the Aurum exchange and can live with that, I would like to note down that this is another issue where Incarna, which were supposed to increase the feel of immersion, goes and break it all by letting a pair of pants cost more than a battleship. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

funny since you don't know how the economy works boy, here an example.

there is stuff out there in RL that is totally worthless, yet people pay large sums for it just to show it to others and because they can.

You're a ****ing moron. Did it ever occur to you that least IRL, you get a percieved benefit from that? Like ego boost from said status symbol, perhaps a hot brunette with her mouth wrapped around your **** while coked out, etc?

What tangible benefit does a monocle which is roughly worth 61$ USD, does one get from eve? I'd rather take that 60 bucks, get a bunch of 1's and go to the strip joint and put it in a g string. Now if it were a buck here, a buck there for an ingame vanity item? Sure, why the **** not?

You know, you should probably stop talking.......not really helping your case any. To the topic at hand I was actually thinking of turning in a plex for some aur and picking up a few odds and ends tonight but that changed as soon as I opened the store. Oh well, maybe later when they pull their heads out of their ends.

In case everyone else has missed the obvious:

Converting AUR to ISK in Domain, at initial prices of 380 million per PLEX, that's 1337142857.14 ISK for a monocle.

Yeah, that's right.

CCP set up their exchange rate in EVE to the current market rate of PLEX such that it would cost you

1.337 billion

...for the monocle.

That's right. The monocole is 1337. It's not about the price, people - it's about the joke CCP is having (at our expense)!

well since people can buy isk on 3rd party sites (which wont even get shut down for violating the EULA even after petitioning)

it indeed does make sense that one can buy stuff for 80$ (since ppl possibly only paid 10$ for the amount of isk they need on said site)

wonder if this will go as intended CCP ;)

fly safe

PS: the site starts with the ingame currency and ends on "bank" fyi

Shocked

When I thought items of clothing were going for 1-2 aurum I thought a couple of hundred thousand isk seems reasonable - I think it might work. Personally I couldn't think of any vanity item worth as much as 12,000 aurum.

I did intend to convert a plex but think I leave if for now. ugh
