Nice one CCP you shot yourself in the face with a bazooka. What possessed you to pull this sh!t on your loyal players? You know who this reminds me of? MindArk, yeah it's exactly something those greedy skumbags consistently do to their (shrinking) playerbase. I would never have believed it of you guys-I respected you. But there it is right in front of my eyes...maaan.... I feel sick now. Sick and Betrayed.

Seriously, I don't get this. What I get even less is that a very small number of people are buying items.

I'm not buying an in game item that costs more than a real item that I can actually wear. I'll need to cash in 2 plexes worth 30 quid to get a virtual pencil skirt that I can buy from Next for 25...

I'm not a hater of CQ but I'm not going to buy anything for my char at those prices, despite me buying complete outfits for characters in other games and in second life...

I'm sure in 38 pages someone has said it before, but this isn't evidence of CCP being greedy to me. This is evidence that someone screwed the frak up. At $60 per whatever, I'd be shocked if more than 1000 people buy it. But at $6 per whatever, it wouldn't surprise me if 100000 people bought one. Simple math, it's why real companies only price gouge to a certain extent. They'll either fix it soon and claim patch day error or fix it in a week and claim marketing research. Or they'll never fix it, in which case they're idiots. Which is totally possible, of course.

Well i hope it's just a big **** up and see a redface reply from CCP "oopsorrywemadeamistake"
Anyways we are now all most 24 hours after incarna gone online.. still no reaction at all from CCP..

Guess they are serious about this and some people will/are feel(ing) focked sideways

Yep, this one needs to stay on page one.

I love finally getting to walk around, really. I also dont mind having the option of paying ISK or plex for vanity items. The pricing is just wrong though. I could have a Rorqual for the cost of a monocle.

Cut a 0 off the prices and then we can talk.

Dear CCP:
Please take note that I will be letting my three subscriptions run out, and will let them remain dormant until such time as you get your collective heads out of your @sses and straighten the feck up regarding "micro" transactions and forced CQ. I realize that my miniscule three accounts add up to nearly nothing in the scheme of things, but realize: a raging flood is made up of but one raindrop at a time.

I bought a PLEX before this expansion hoping that it would be put to good use.

It was. I resubbed my alt instead, because this is ****ing ridiculous. I was expecting maybe prices that were a tenth of what they actually are right now. But no, I get a ****ing useless monocle that nobody else will ever see for the equivalent of two tanks of gas, and not much more. I was expecting maybe 25-30 different items at a price that would be considered reasonable by sane consumers, but I suppose I should've known better.

Bloody hell

Well it seems like they did not make a mistake with the prices, and thus, for the first time since i started playing EVE long ago i consider leaving for good.

I was thinking about getting the odd vanity item once Incarna had reached a further stage of development at the point when we can actually interact with people, but that is all out the window.

With that said that isn't the reason i may quit, the reason is more of a what next CCP stand point, if CCP are willing to charge these sorts of stupid prices then what is next.

It is just offensive to charge such prices and also to do **** like make some items 3600, which is 100 more then what a plex will give you, forcing you to use two plex's if you wan't most of the items at least.

This could have serious effects on the EVE market but they do not seem to care.

I guess what it comes down to is this, too many players are buying plex's to run there EVE account, instead of paying the monthly subscription fee and CCP are losing money, so they are trying to find ways to increase PLEX prices.

It also now all makes sense why there is never any new content for most of the game, if they bring in new industrial ships for example, that mine faster and better, people can make ISK easier and thus afford PLEX's easier, meaning more people would switch to PLEX's and stop paying CCP monthly subscription fees,

I personally have always paid the monthly subscription fee, so i can get the most out of the game, but who knows YARRRR!!


You're right. Makes pretty much sense. Never the less I think CCP literally punched all of their players right in the face with full force!

I'm feeling pretty betrayed by CCP. And it's not just me. A lot of players were really looking foward to experience their first steps out of their pods.

In the past when people had asked me what kind of game EVE is I was always excited to tell them about shiny ships and cruel metagaming. Things I always connected with the game.

Right now I'm just connecting being screwed by CCP! Thank you CCP for opening my eyes and showing me your true nature. You have broken my trust in you completely.

It's like in your own game: Your reputaion is your most valuable property!

Introducing those prices for vanity items was he first step in ruining your name. Maybe you CCP should consider remembering the basics: "Word-of-mouth recommendation is one of the most profitably and at the same time one of the most devastating things for your comany."

Enough said. We will see what impact comes next by CRUEL CONCEPTS PRODUCTION.

Simple, Supply and Demand.

Also,


If you make something expensive enough some people will buy it because its expensive, however most people will not bother with it.

If you make something cheap enough however, lots of people will buy it because its cheap. CCP went with the wrong attitude. everything is WAY too expensive, making it unlikely that anyone will buy those items. Especially considering most of those items don't look all that great to begin with.

You're missing the point. This is not about supply and demand.

This is about the principle of pricing. They are pricing themselves out of the market, and insulting a wide range of gamers over it.

They have really ****ed up.

Hence the point..

The game, for the grand scheme of things that makes EVE, EVE.. is the same. People are crying and quiting.. with things that are completely irrelevent.

Sorry you can't afford what you want.. given your CAP DEROGATORY response, you're angry inside from being hurt. What did CCP do to you exactly, hmmm? Quite honestly, you and a lot of people need to blame your parents for raising spoiled, greedy, 'my way or die' attitude lil pricks.

No one is going to care what you look like. Only you. That goes for everyone that gives a **** about noble/aurum. It's irrelevent.

CQ/Incarna will grow in time, as they have stated Repeatedly.. and if your machine can't handle it, again.. blame yourselves.

These forums are so full of self rightous asshats that believe their **** spring roses and their $ goes further cause they have a mouth. 50 cents USD a day equates to complete virtual entitlement? Anyone that quits.. I ask that you donate your subs value to feeding childern or homeless animals that are happy with nothing more than a friendly smile and a glass of water.

If EVE didn't die after what Dominion did.. Incarna isn't going to end up being a drop in the subdown-bucket. Being a drama queen solves nothing.. and CCP, or any company.. isn't going to pay attention to a couple rambling idiots going on and on with their army of alts about their disgruntled opinions while they still fork over money.

Going to quit over vanity.. get on with it folks. I look forward to the forums clearing up so rational people can get back to talking about the game that is EVE.

If my words offend any of you.. go talk to a mirror about it.

There are better ways to address concerns.

CCP should outsource to China, they make real clothes, for much cheaper.

I'm sure they can do the NeX items for a fraction of the price Razz

There are a lot of things that CCP has done that I have supported them on, being not only a programmer but also a fellow game dev. First iterations are important to have to understand what the populous thinks about the new stuff.

This new NeX store, however, is metric-****tonnes of player-hating. Either CCP is really in the need for cash, or they have no real notion of how much people are willing to spend for ******* secondary items for an avatar that no-one can see yet!

Fix this, CCP. Just drop a zero or two from each and every item. If everything is cheap, then many people will be buying them! Nothing should cost more a single PLEX, no matter how much you want it to be 'worth'.

Applause for that post. Guys n gals if you dont want a 25 usd skirt just don't buy it. I wont for sure. Yes there is someone at CCP who is a total public relations noob. And lately someone who probably needs to be draged onto the carpet or fired. I like the new expansion. Look beyond the fluff for now. its gonna be groundbreaking.

They have really ****ed up.


You're missing the point, cosmetic items only appeal to certain percentage of the player base. CCP can charge whatever they want, if the items sell, prices stay the same, if they don't then they go down. And how about people that like to buy shiny new stuff, you get them at the higher price. Then after a while if sales aren't going well, reduce the prices, get the people that now see the items priced at what they consider "right".

You seem to be annoyed that CCP isn't charging what you want them to charge for pixels. Sadly no business works that way.

I'd also make the point that in this instance, it is wayyyyy better to overcharge than to undercharge, because you can't increase prices of virtual items. (well without looking stupid)

News Flash.

This isn't just a "couple of rambling idiots" we are talking about. This is virtually HALF OF EVE that's angry at CCP for this Noble Marketplace bull****.

I can tell you with confidence that all of the roleplayers I know, are insulted by the prices. None of them will agree to such a system.

Funny because the rp aspect is just another nail in the coffin for me. It really ruins the rp/immersion aspect of the game to think that a pair of pants costs the same as a fully outfitted and crewed (though I guess the crew are naked) top-of-the line battleship.

Not all of us are saying we're going to quit.

A good number of us, myself included, are simply making it known that we will not be purchasing any of the insanely overpriced, badly designed (read: ugly), piece of crap vanity items from CCPs new little pet store project.

Could I afford them? Sure. I spend more than enough money per month on Scotch to buy every little vanity item offered currently. Do I think they are in any way remotely worth the price? Hell f*cking no.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and these forums are here so people can voice theirs.

If peoples opinions offend you, don't read them.

Your post seems to indicate that awfully butthurt right now over a thread that you made a conscious choice to come and read... I think you might wanna follow your own advice and go talk to a mirror instead of making rage posts.

If EVE is still EVE, like you say, none of what's being said in this thread should matter a lick to you.
