1. those morons will buy stuff for aurum

4. CCP adds more content for morons and none for the "real" spaceship pilots that loved this game since it started in 03

yay for no real content in the upcoming years

fly safe


Put your money where your mouth is - lets sign a gentlemen's agreement, with Chribba notarizing. If after 2 calendar years from today's date, and your predictions are correct and there is no new content other than in the NeX store, you can have all my stuff. As in, all my assets, wallet, ships, on all my accounts, and I'll transfer all my characters to your accounts.

If after two calendar years, there are new developments OTHER than more micro transactions in EvE, you will give me all your stuffs, characters, ships, isk, accounts.

Whichever one of us is wrong, has to start over from scratch, or ragequit in a fit of tears and shame.

And yes, I'm quite serious.




im sorry to tell you but i already made my decision and i dont think ill be here anymore in 2 years ....

why ? poor content, lost interest in general oh and the fact RMTing websites actually selling CCPs property wont get shut down

fly safe

PS btw the RMTing websites and the rates in the NEX might possibly be the end to eve as we know it ;) (imagine you dont have to spend 80$ on PLEX but can spend 40$ on the isk to aqcuire PLEX ingame to get your monocle or Dodixie Droners Baseball cap or whatever there will be)

Let me blow your mind. Imagine you can buy isk from an RMT site and use that isk to buy PLEX to pay your sub.

Imagine.
That.

Is your mind blown? Ok, you're now caught up to every other eve player in the game. (as of when PLEX and even GTC buying was implemented.) - I sure didn't see the game ending then, and it's not going to end now over some expensive monocles.

I think it just proves you're slow. Because when this was implemented -several years ago- it didn't end the game.

CCP understands the communities deep seated yearning for discount monocles and will be reaching out to washer and bolt manufacturers in an attempt to meet your needs.

PLEX mightve not broken the game BUT it gave ppl a reason to bot or buy isk cheaper on ebay or whereever to actually play for less than regular ppl
NEX imo is another reason for boosting the RMT "market" ... why ? due to the obvious overpriced **** in the NEX....

There is Bug with the Noble Exchange Market.

After you buy some stuff, there is no field to enter

At those Prices, this items must be RL Items, right?
So, i await them to be delivered to my house.

Please fix the order form, so General Parcel can deliver

You don't like it? Then don't buy it!
You think it is to expensive? Don't buy it!
Monocles doesn't fit your hair color? Don't buy it!

When will people stop whining about things they don't even buy.

BTW: You can buy PLEX on the market so its actually not even $80, just some PLEX

Amazing isn't it how CCP Can troll and generally be Smart ass's but any one else gets 'warned'.

Guard: No offense here but rather then making comments which could be considered smart assed, how about actually giving us some real feedback, like ohhh i don't know how about..... why the prices are such a joke, the real reasoning behind it.. your acting just as bad as a certain other dev in the help channel last night.

C'mon. This is an old gripe, let's see some data to back up your wild speculation. Give me some reliable data that RMT/botting is destroying the economy, or that everyone is going to ebay for isk instead of the PLEX market.

Better yet, just stop wasting your time *****ing about a game you're already sworn to quit anyways. You say you've been ripped off, betrayed, that your days here are numbered, clearly you're not interested in giving them the contructive criticism they'll actually respond to. Do the honorable thing, and just bow out.

The prices are just to high for a vanity item.

I mean seriously if it was for a special ship or module or something that had a real impact in game it might be worth considering. But at these prices I don't see why anyone would want to waste their isk or Rl money on it.

It's a vanity item, how can you place a specific value on an item that by definition does nothing at all?

Ok so a lot of people donít seem to understand retail marketing.

CCP are doing exactly the right thing in releasing the first collection at exorbitant prices. The early adopters and fashion fanatics will pay over the odds for something that is new even if it is useless.

Think of the initial offerings as the Christian Dior catwalk range; the next will be the Ralph Lauren ready to wear preppy range and then there will be other ranges going all the way down to WallMart/Matalan/C&A made in Bangladesh cheap stuff.

As has been pointed out, none of these vanity items will make a jot of difference until the air quality in stations has been sorted out and we can actually socialise with each other in bars, casinos or public toilets etc. Only if by then the cheaper clothing hasnít been released will I be aggravated.

PS. Not that I undock much these days anyway

These prices are a ****ing joke and anybody stupid enough to pay them deserves to be milked out of as much of their hard-earned money as they possibly can.

For the low low price of $15-30 USD I could buy a nice shirt for my in-game character...
OR I COULD GO TO THE STORE AND BUY A REAL SHIRT FOR MYSELF

CCP, are you admitting that your game has gone so far downhill that a virtual skirt - that, mind you, NOBODY ELSE CAN SEE since we're limited to captain's quarters - is more valuable than a month spent of game time?

P.S. With prices like these, no wonder nobody would give us any indication of what the prices would be like before now, not on the forums, not during the Q&A during the alliance tournament, not anywhere. Protip, CCP - if you're trying to hide something that you know we won't like, maybe you should reconsider releasing it Rolling Eyes

P.P.S. I feel bad for your content developers spending ALL THIS TIME (lol developing what, like 8 items?) that nobody will ever see.
(I don't actually feel bad for them)

aaaand there goes my 2 accounts. No loss for CCP, but I refuse to be part of this.
CCP should spend more time focusing on what this game is really about; Spaceships.

You can't have my stuff, cause I sold all of it to buy vanity items which I burned.
I hope you fall into a vulcano CCP.

Because the developers have said it in plain English.

Be respectful, or be ignored. This will be the most ignored threadnought ever, and for good reason, cause CCP is not interested in catering to trolls. And even if you have constructive, respectful, criticism, this is not a good thread to post it in. Because 90% of the posts in here have been like "go to hell CCP devs go frak yourself you pieces of slaver hound ****" Which means it was placed on CCP's "Do not respond" list about a dozen comments in.

There should seriously be no shock or surprise at all that CCP is ignoring this thread, and any others that start out as childishly as "WTFCCPUSUCK".

It's a shame we don't have stats to see how people are reacting about the new market, here on the forum is a minority, but I would be curious to see if we're the only one being shocked by the price.

That's kinda my point, I could buy the ETC and convert to PLEX and just sell the PLEX for isk and get ships/mods etc which is far more useful in game than the vanity items. I mean you could buy a carrier and fully fit it for the price of the monocle.

I have to agree, the pricing is crazy. I would have expected standard items of clothing to cost no more than $1-2. People crazy enough may be persuaded to pay more for an ultra rare officer modified monocle though.
