And they've still got tons of fun graphical bugs to work out. My favorite is the "OH MY GOD MY ARM IS GOING THROUGH MY STOMACH" one when I'm sitting. Apparently, they didn't think ANYONE would want to create a character that didn't have 6-pack abs.

Ok, let me see if I can follow the thought process here...

Pre-Incarna:

Players: Clothing is ******ed.. nobody will ever buy it, nobody wants it.. eff you CCP.

Incarna:

Players: OMFG this clothing is too expensive and too elitist. I wouldn't ever buy it.. but if I wanted to, which I don't.. really.. I want it to be affordable.. so I can show everybody how much better I am than they are inexpensively. But I don't want it.. but I'm upset that I can't afford it.



This pretty much sums it up. People complain about anything beforehand, and anything they can't access afterwards (even if they didn't want it in the first place, honest!).

These clothing items are obviously meant as an isk sink for the superrich, and not for people to buy with $$.

People will take the time to post and whine, but not the time to think things through.

You are the ****ing dumbass. The PLEX you buy on the market? Someone else spent 15 dollar to get it, because he wanted to get ISK. You just gave him the ISK in exchange for that plex you just bought.

Except that PLEX actually has IRL monetary value, and I don't think you even understand the concept of currency exchange rates. Why don't you go take a basic economics course, then come back and try to understand how it's a blatant ripoff. Goddamn, you youngsters are getting dumber and dumber.

Wow I was scammed by CCP. I converted a plex to Aur without looking at the prices (my fault I know), I mainly wanted one of those "men's field marshal coats". Nevermind the fact that I can't even find it, not sure if different station contain different items? The prices are obviously outrageous.

For 35$ I expect to be able to fully deck out all three of my toons and have tons of Aur left to buy items to sell on the eve market. If I wanted to spend 35$ on a pair of pants I would buy real pants not ****ing pixels. Get real CCP.

If you see someone wearing one of those 12k items it tells you several things.

1) They have money
2) They are a bit dumb

You can then target them for scams etc., try to extort as much money from them as possible.

well if you bought a plex for real life cash, that pretty much says it all how much of a moron you are.

its pretty obviouse that the items are meant for people who have toons of ig money so they can buy pelxes and convert it to aurum.

Oh my GOD. YOU ARE SOO STUPID IT MAKES MY GODDAMN HEAD HURT.

IN ORDER TO GET A PLEX, A PLAYER HAS TO BUY IT FROM CCP FOR 15 DOLLARS. THEY TURN AROUND AND PUT THAT PLEX ON THE MARKET TO GET IN GAME MONEY (ISK) IN EXCHANGE FOR IT.

The exchange rate is like 1 PLEX for 3600 AUR. For ONE PLEX, YOU GET ONE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING LIKE A ****ING SOCK. THE MONOCLE IS ABOUT 12K AUR WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO CONVERT 4-5 PLEXES TO GET IT.

ADD MORE ITEMS IN THERE DOWN THE LINE AT THE SAME INFLATED RATE, CAN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW IT IS BLATANT NICKEL AND DIMING?

Every single one of those PLEX on the market has been bought by someone, using REAL DOLLARS, YOU ****ING DUMB ****.

Sure, you may have purchased that PLEX using in game money, but someone paid IRL money for that plex at some point and CCP gets that money.

JESUS DILDO STABBING CHRIST.

Again, how do you convert PLEXes purchased in-game to cash? Everything I've read on the subject indicates that buying and selling of in-game items/characters/accounts for cash (from other players at least with PlEXes being the sole CCP-based exception) is a violation of the ToS/EULA.

I thought it was a pretty simple question. You claim that PLEXes have monetary worth and can be converted back and forth and I ask, "So how do players "legally" convert one back to RL money?" The PLEX<->Cash conversion does need to go both ways for it to be "back and forth" after all. You respond, "You dumbass, someone else spent cash on it so that's how you convert the PLEX you bought to cash."

I'm just not seeing how that converts the PLEX bask to isk. It makes no logical sense that because person B spends isk on a PLEX which person A spent cash on that either of them gets any cash out of the deal. Still, if you want to toss out insults to people asking legitimate questions while sounding like an idiot go for it, that's your prerogative and this thread is all the more humorous for it. Laughing

It's 3500 Aurum. I think you're nerdraging so hard you're either typing badly or losing your ability to comprehend numbers. Either way perhaps you should take a nice hot bath and read a book.

Why these prices .. they may sell 10 for $80 instead of 1000 if the price was $8.

Let me get this straight...

CCP remodels and reskins 1 ship per year (hell, we would take high res textures)
CCP creates 2 ships per year and maybe 3 skins between them. Add 1 more skin when they **** with a good skin and make it camouflage (Hello Nightmare, Navy Megathron)

Most of us play internet spaceships and Captains Quarters (thus far Incarna, and we know CCP and their ability to consistently iterate on old concepts Rolling Eyes) gets old after five minutes... and CCP is paying for fashion designers in New York and Reykjavik to have (multiple) new models and textures for clothes for this introduced weekly. The ****?

Yay new turrets, but as far as I can tell, this entire expansion was to introduce microtransactions, something which was done more poorly than I could have possibly imagined. There is no content to this expansion, none whatsoever. What happened to expansions like those that added capitals, added t2 equipment, added 2500 systems and t3 ships (actually, about other sized t3 ships which were expected in other iterations on the concept...and the fifth subsystem...), any iterations on and improving faction warfare.

People keep calling this a setup for something great, interactive, and immersive (is that a word? Spellcheck does not seem to think so), but CCP has often set up things to be great, then said fatal flaws would be fixed later (faction warfare much).

Oh, and balance and supercaps, how about that? Exactly how much of the money players spend on EVE go into developing EVE, compared to WoD and Dust anyway?

CCP and the direction they seem to be taking honestly disgusts me.

That's sorta the point. Ok, I misunderstood. 1 PLEX = 15 USD = 3500 AUR = 380mil ISK

Roughly. You have items that are obscenely overpriced, and if the exchange rate is 3600 AUR for one PLEX, that's 15 dollars OR 380-400 mil ISK. When I say it has monetary value, I mean that just because you buy a PLEX using ISK, someone along the line somewhere, paid CCP 15 dollars for that PLEX.

Essentially, CCP is insulting its player base by making the vanity items obscenely overpriced and it is probably very likely they will add other things besides that to the NEX in the future -- like ship skins, custom skin colors, vanity ships that may or may not break the game. Given the trend, I'm not too confident.

For instance, the monocle is 12k AUR which roughly requires 4-5 PLEXes, break that down it's about 61 USD or so.

Sorry I flipped my lid, it's just that so many people just don't seem to understand that concept and I guess I completely misunderstood what you were asking.

The point is that even if you spend ISK to get a plex to convert to AUR, someone along the line somewhere paid CCP that 15 dollars and they're pocketing money at your expense -- frankly, it's insulting. I just have CCP charge my card directly and that's the end of it.
