I don't get it. One day ago, people was complaigning about item mall. Now they're complaigning that they can't buy this stuff.

If it's to expensive, nobody buy it so micro-transaction will be a big fail and a big win for EvE Online no?

I have not been following what would be going into CQ and this patch. Except for the Ships and turrets maybe.

But when I saw terms like "Vanity" Items and "Noble" exchange my first though was.... EXPENSIVE SHYTE.

I have the isk to convert and buy a damn eye piece but I won't. Since my isk is better spend on more important things right now. People that have the Billions of isk to throw around will buy one.

I won't consider them idiots, I would just think.... there is a guy with aot of isk.

Wow...
I wasnt really against this NEX thing at the start, I thought "Yeah, I might spend a couple of bucks making myself look badass" -

But this is beyond ridiculous. How are CCP not the laughing stock of the games industry right now!?!?
I love this damn game, but come on! There are the most ridiculous "microtransaction" prices ever, and thats coming from someone who's played bloody Entropia!

Its hilarious and a little insulting.
CCP, How rich AND HOW STUPID do you think your playerbase is!?!?

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

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



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?



I agreed with Verone and Jade Constantine on the same thing on the same day in the same thread, there is a great disturbance in the force...

Yeah i can only agree with OP and all others in agreement with OP. The pricing of clothing in the eve universe is more fed up than a John Holmes using a pig as an oral sex doll until it barfs. In other words, pretty damn insane and not to mention disgusting. Prices of clothing need to be divided by 12 at least. Seriously CCP, if you are going to charge 80$ for something you should consult Rolex, Armani or Louis Vuitton to name a few, have them design something and stamp their logo on it, not only would you break ground and be "first!" it would also probably generate a ****load of media coverage for EVE: Online.

Who the hell is going to pay 80 $ for a Ocular Implant that at least three hundred other people with more money than sense in the game would own too? You charge a price that can only be described as gross, yet give us no option of choosing diffrent color styles etc. These clothes would of been cool if they are free now, like so many people already ask, CCP how desperate are you for money? Did the new servers cost too much?

And to get diversity why don't you CCP, let the players manufacture their own accessorizes? As previous design a space ship contests have proved, there are extremely talented artists amongst the EVE player base. Set up a team of screeners that look at objects people make, allow them if they fit the context and filter out the hello kitty shirts that people would post for ****s and giggles. People could then set up shops in stations, pay rent for the shops, sell their own clothing and use the AUR to exchange back into PLEX etc. This would help make stations an interesting place to be. This could also be integrated into the crafting system already in place.

Also add cage fighting i.e UFC styled matches that avatars can attend both as audience and letting the players punch each others faces in. And even further in the future, if we have clones, there should be a Quake III styled arena for players to battle against each other for the viewing pleasure of millions. I can see so many scenarios.. Death Match, Capture The Flag, Minmatar Slave Invasion Defense.. The blood is going to be endless. Well i got out of topic, i was only supposed to complain but actually i ended up writing down a few ideas.. I think the first one is something that could be very neat tough. Brings both diversity and player involvement into the game.

A few days ago, people were complaining that CCP didn't understand what certain items in an MT store would do to the economy, now they're complaining about CCP's obvious lack of any hint of understanding of what makes an MT store work to begin with.

Both complaints were about the competence of CCP, and while the first might be more damaging to the game world, the second seems to suggest a level of competence that might directly damage CCP itself. Neither is good for the game.

Easy decision. The Bhaalgorn looks good the monocle salt shaker jammed into your eye socket does not.

Have to agree, NEX prices are rediculously high. IMHO, 1 plex, should be = 35,000 AUR, and sales prices should be 1/10th the current value, ( as copared to the current price template ).

Then again, the NEX doesn't have anything that's tempting anyway.

I just wanna see the CCP response to the backlash on this, I dont care about in game vanity items, my charaters looks just the way I want them...

Although, I want the option to disable the Captain Quarters, since I can no longer have 6 accounts docked... I found out nicely when I nearly toasted two 400 graphics cards because their temps went to 106C when "kill temp" is 105C

I would like to have seen all items cheep and have a chance of getting droped on your corps when poded.

Added bonus for making it mountable to put as a trophie in your captains quarters.Cool

I completely refuse to RMT regardless, and have clearly stated so previously, so I can simply laugh at this ugh

The real problem of course is *when* the game altering RMT begins, then its game over for me.

P.S. Laughing at those threatening to ragequit over price of items they don't need anyway.

@silver night

I appreciate that you are having a reasonable thought about this. I would just say that there's a difference between a demographic and a market. I suspect that there is a market for these trinkets that are extremely priced. You're just not a part of that market.

I also think that this isn't designed to be a major overhaul to the plex system. If they really needed to vastly cut down on the availability of plexes (or if it were a pure money grab) they would change the RL price.

In any case, I just don't see it as being that big of a deal. Minor economy tweaking, as well as throwing a bone to people with way to much isk is all it is for now. I don't really see it as being any different than faction ships (and we all know that lp stores are designed to be isk sinks). They are too pricey for me, so I train skills and research the best fits on the ships I can fly instead of complaining about the cost of stuff.

I guess the idea that there is stuff that's appealing that I can't afford doesn't bother me that much. Yet. Just wait until ccp releases Hookers, Beer, and Pizza 1.0 and I'll be *****ing about how hookers cost 10 billion isk an hour.

So it goes.

I understand CCP are trying to get rid of the amount of Plex currently being hoarded, but how did they think this would be the way to do it. What's next if this completely fails? force you into purchasing other things critical to the game. It's a slippery slope they are potentially headed down if they are looking to make more money. Yes I'm concerned that they could destroy their own game by making bad business decisions.

I have no problem supporting a game I enjoy by purchasing items from an MT store, but not like this. Looks like no paint jobs, etc for me now. Crying or Very sad

After checking some MMO gaming sites it seems anything else contained in Incarna has been completely overshadowed by the NEX item costs. Not sure if that was the type of advertising CCP was going for.

Your biggest market for this are the Rpers and my entire Alliance last night had their jaw drop and im sure a lot of other Rpers did as well. I think one can safely say if the prices of the clothes where at 200-500 AUR people would not even mind if the clothes would be destructed with the pod, it would simply be a expensive implant ISK wise it would still hurt but it would be reasonable!
