Don't think of it in terms of real money guys, think of it in terms of the in-game currencies: aurum/ISK. A skirt that costs twice as much as a fully fitted and rigged battleship makes a lot of sense in EVE universe. It's a new, truly immersion-enhancing aspect of the game world.


But in real life my clothes cost more than spacefaring vessels of mass destruction!

Also these are destroyed on pod death right?

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.


Could you find and link said response, please?

Well, the Eve players complained when CCP announced they were going to introduce microtransactions in Eve, and it looks like they listened! There is nothing "micro" at all about these transactions, so I think it's a bit of a stretch to claim that there are microtransactions in Eve.

$60 for a useless glass eye? Get ****ed, CCP.

That's something at least, but they sure did leave the micro out of microtransaction.

Who do CCP think they are? Apple or something?
Yes.

Or, well… no. Apple has reasonable pricing and provides good support and feedback for the price.

Cf. $99 for an undocumented API. Wink

Guys, lets be reasonable now. These prices are somewhat steep but CCP is in a tough spot. How else is CCP supposed to refill their vault full of cocaine by the end of the month?

Keeping the marketing team this tweaked out isn't cheap, you know.

Yeah so hopefully i'll wake up tomorrow and see "sorry the prices were wrong in the Nex"

But seriously CCP?
I mean fine I don't want any of the vanity Items, but i was thinking of making a nice tasty profit with the cheapo plexes I got my hands on, but yeah that's not gonna happen ><

Hey Selene, this is like Poker!

CCP over bet so our choice has been made REALLY easy. We just fold, which costs us nothing and we keep all our chips.

If they had raised just a little they might have pulled us into the hand... But nope.

I think everyone needs to calm down.

Are the prices outrageous? Hell yes.

This is Day 1 of Incarna, and no, we don't get all the features of Walking in Stations on Day 1.

That being said, if AUR prices are player controlled (hopefully, I'm downloading update as I type this), than prices will reflect demand.

If not, then yes, CPP is making a cash grab.

I'm already giving them a thumbs down for making Dust 514 a PS3 exclusive.

Too many more screw-ups, CCP, and I'm walking away when The Old Republic comes out, instead of playing both.

Thanks for bringing this up. And I did chuckle at the great "killmail" above.

We finalized on the following characteristics:
-clothing are destructible while in your cargo (like anything else)
-clothing are not destroyed if podded while worn - you will wake up in your new clone wearing the same outfit
-clothing does not travel with you if you take advantage of a jump clone - it remains in the previous station
-items such as the eye implants or Amarr monocles which are installed in the body do NOT behave like implants but can be removed and put on again at will (or even resold.)

We believe these settings best serve both our current population as well as those players who come later and learn to play EVE Online without the benefit of a specific briefing on the new functionality.

Tharr ya go YARRRR!!

That's just so stupid, it has got to be a bug, surely. Please tell me you missed a decimal or 2.

Micro Transaction: Small payment for an item, typically lower then the Macro transaction you already pay..


Don't see that here.. At these prices is CCP sending me a REAL version of what I'm gonna buy in the store? Because they'd f'n want to be, I mean Christ a Good Shirt will only set you back 20$ in real life, a pair of pants 25$ if i want to go 'designer' 60 - 100$ and that's for a piece of REAL fabric i can wear that will keep me warm, has had some poor chinese sob sitch it togeather and I've paid GST and Import Duties on.

Some how I do NOT think I've seen you do that here CCP.. Either some one F'k'd majorly up and put extra 0's onto everything or you truely have become nothing more then Greedy Liers and you've lost a customer from ever buying WOD when it comes out based on my experiance with EVE (I feel sorry for White-Wolf, a good company that let itself be brought out by YOU).

Well, we should have expected this. I mean, after all... look at the prices in the Eve Store and what you have to pay for shipping.

Aside form the boot.ini derp years ago this is the biggest fail thing i have ever seen CCP release.....ever. It should of never been in the game in the first place. Now lets see how many people have disabled CQ by the end of the 1st week.

CCP, can't say I'm surprised. In the last few months you have made so many bad decisions and statements that you are really turning into a big joke.

Maybe its just a ploy so when they bring down the prices to 15$ for a monocle people go PHEW! thats better!
