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!


I'm a roleplayer, and I approve this message.

You know what, CCP? Go jump in a volcano. Seriously, do it. You've got one right in your goddamn backyard. You deserve to burn in hell for pulling this garbage.

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


Think you're kind of missing the point. Not only was MTs bad to begin with, this asinine pricing schedule is icing on the rage cake with a big huge 'Told ya So!' candle.

Now I know that Icelandic finances are a bit.. err.. gimped as of lately but to try and buff your monetary coin by charging game players with prices that, in some cases, far exceed similar RL items is not a good idea in my book.

At this moment, you've destroyed a good income from your (micro)transaction scheme in EVE. What's next? Charging € 150,- in Aurum on a good gun in Dust 514? how many players do you think are willing to pay?

I'd pay maybe £0.20 for an accessory in Eve. More than £0.40 and nope.


I fully support these prices. Maybe if they remain this high then the PLEX market won't crash.

I'd rather see all forms of RMT crash horribly, in response to this stupidity on CCP's part.

Just hopped on the forums and saw this little thread. I have not even logged in or started to try and patch. There is a money grubbing scumbag working at CCP killing this game.

This thread cracks me up so much....

I am constantly amazed at the amount of sheer *****ing and moaning that goes on in these forums. There was outrage over the market being implemented at all, now the outrage that no one wants to front the Isk for these items. There are plenty of rich ass pilots out there, who will fork over 3 plex for a monocle, they're the same douchebags with 16 supercaps to drop whenever. Just as there will be plenty of pilots with mom's credit card buying and converting ETC's into plex so they can make some quick isk to buy a carrier. This a fluid economy people, if you dont want to fork out $80 for a monocle, dont. Get out there and hustle for some isk like you would for anything else dope in this game, and buy some plex and grab your monocles.

Also amusing is people trying to run what they knew would would be a graphically intensive addition 6-fold on their PC's and nearly burning out cards cause they bit off more than they could chew. Anyone ever tried to run 6 versions of Crysis on their computer? No, cause that would be dumb. Regardless of how much you spent on your cards. If you have no friends/corpmates to do the tasks your 5 alts are doing for you, that's your fault. Not CCP's for lowering their hardware standards for the least common denominator.

For a game that encourages adapt-or-die, i just cant stop laughing and shaking my head at all the pilots who are unwilling to adapt to a shift in EvE. Years down the road, this will all be commonplace, as ship spinning was before, and people will have a thousand new things to complain about.

Remember all the predictions about how microtransactions were going to "destroy" the economy? Well, PLEX prices are crashing, not soaring, and there's just far too few items on the NeX for CCP's imaginary "shameless-cash-grab-master-plan" to ever be successful.

What a stinking surprise, MT won't be CCP's new revenue stream of choice. Who woulda guessed?? Well, anyone that actually listened to their intentions for the MT store to begin with.

Buy a nicer video card for 50 bucks, enjoy the pretty visuals, learn the new shortcut to your cargo bay, and ignore the store if you don't like it or cant afford it.

Life will go on in New Eden, as it always has everytime CCP makes a major change....as will the neverending, meaningless QQ.

…just one problem, they've picked a price range that means they can't live up to those intentions either.

- Men's 'Commando' Pants (black wax) -- 1.25 Billion ISK

- Moros (Gallente Dreadnaught) -------- 1.6 Billion ISK

Holy crap, what imaginary sick world does CCP team lives... at the price of a capital ship, I really hope this pants are hand-crafted by Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Isn't "adapt or die", in this scenario essentially "Learn to cope with how bad the game is getting or quit"?

Because if so I'd really like my old Eve back. After dreads, before carriers. That bit was the best.

Honestly, I would have preferred that clothing items for avatars be craftable by players, in order to create a station-side player driven economy.

This would be very immensely appealing to the roleplay community at large.

Just look at Star Wars Galaxies. Players still craft clothes and the like for the market in that old game.

Many people in the OOC channel on EVE believe that this model should be followed - that is to say, revert to a player-driven, craftable model, to promote further community interactions when actual station spaces are implemented.

Given that this whole NeX mess is producing a nasty backlash, it would be in CCP's best interest to focus on the gameplay aspect of the clothing feature, and not on the "Monetization" of it.

Seriously.

Craftable clothes please. It would solve this rage so easily.

Now, 18 months later, we've got this. A framework for €€P to display their corporate douchebaggery. Because right now, it's featureless. Hell, it's a fourth of what it should've have been in the first place (four featureless rooms). It's embarrassing, more so for the player base. Embarrassing your customers like this, most of them clearly not interested in walking about, it's moronic. Now I'm left with barely any fun in the last few months due to ever-growing balancing issues, and memories of yet another game that got ran into the ground because of moneygrabbing douchebags.

I did read that devblog, here's what it said:

Quote:
We want to balance the creation and production of such variations and customizability against the actual demand for it.


Hey, guess what. Now there's no demand at all.

Adding my +1 to the disgusting overcharged prices and general idiocy by CCP over incarna and this release.

Did CCP not remember the horse armour fiasco?

CCP - I'm in your target demographic to buy these but they are not enticing, over priced and currently serve no purpose other than to be used in posting screenshots.

Get back to fixing internet spaceships.

El oh el. There are some people who don't like going out and fighting, you know. There are those who like to look fashionable and not break their RL wallet doing it.

So, to reiterate: DITCH THIS STUPID NEX BS. IMPLEMENT CRAFTABLE PLAYER CLOTHING, PLEASE.

Nope. Cause I'd rather spend that isk on a couple nicely fitted carriers / Machariels. Which are both destructible, useful, and much more fun, by the way. I reserve the right to buy what is fun for me.

I totally get that there are newer players, that haven't learned how to make a lot of isk in a short amount of time (by hook or by crook), and they may be disappointed that they cant afford a monocle.

But I'm not about to rage over the prices, Supercapitals blow up every day in this game, at the price of like 5 monocles. To say that these are unaffordable just isn't true.

There are people like me who have a very low ingame income, and cannot afford to be spending every waking hour trying to sc**** together what little ISK we can. We have lives.

I've decided to add another post to this threadnought for CCP to see that those prices are ridiculous. I cannot say that I was going to buy all of the stuff from the shop, but I was planning to buy something from time to time... I thougth that prices on clothes would be around 200-500 aur/piece and that was acceptable. With single items costing more than one plex you will not get that money from me.
