3,500 AUR per PLEX

* men: 1,000
* woman: 2,400

* men: 3,000
* woman: 3,600

* men: 3,600
* woman: 3,200 or 4,400

Nice to see that woman get gouged on clothing prices in Eve as well as RL.

Prices should be at most, 1/10 of what they are now. Even then, the monocle would still be outrageous.

Or does this just mean that CCP is going to crash the price of PLEX because they think it's overpriced? Rolling Eyes

So pretty much a pair of pants cost the same as a t2 BS. Or you could get a monocle for the price of a dreadnaught. Seriously?

CCP can't even get MTs right.

The whole point of MT is they are ment to be micro..

who in their right mind would pay $45 for a vanity item?

Just seen the prices and the laughably small selection and am horribly disappointed and outraged at the same time.

12000 AUR for a Monocle?! You've gotta be joking. After all the BS about microtransactions, CCP drop the ball yet AGAIN by selling these pixel clothes for more than the price of real ones!!

No f*ckin way. This better change, and damn fast, or virtually no one will buy them.

Posted - 2011.06.21 23:48:00 - [95]


why are net clothes more costly than real ones


I want a proper manacle from the early years and a freekin tophat for lulz!

CCP - You need a half-off sale, stat. The prices are a ****ing joke. Seriously, it's an obvious ****ing cash grab. Congrats on whoring yourselves out.

Not that I planned on ever buying anything as silly as a vanity item for RL money but I'd still like to say that the above statement accurately describes my opinion on this matter.

You used to be a bunch of cool freaks making a kick ass game for the sake of making a good game - and that's how you acted towards us, your customers. But recently you've been getting more and more business-y and clearly interested mainly in bleeding as much cash out of the game as possible. It makes me sad and vaguely sick to my stomach.

You lost a lot of the respect I had left for you today, CCP.

@Whoever came up with this idea and decided upon the prices: you (and people like you) are literally the reason our world is such a screwed up place. Crying or Very sad

Even STO, a game that pretty much only survives because of the C-Store, doesn't charge anywhere NEAR that much.

Their most expensive items are generally SHIPS that actually DO something, and clothing comes in sets.

And you can't lose them once you buy them! You've got a literally infinite supply, and generally for all the characters on your account!

For single-instance, destructible items to cost anywhere near that much is just plain dumb.

Posted - 2011.06.21 23:49:00 - [99]

Every single patch there has been since I have stated playing there was an opportunity for players to make some gold rush money for over priced new items. Until now. It seems that CCP took that for them selves this time.

I mean who is gonna buy a vanity item for 12.000 Aurum - 4 plex - 45$ dollars in real life money ?

Seriously... How bad is CCP for money ? This NEX prices are ridiculous...

You've seen the facebook games right? People fork over tons of cash for that. And that's a ****ing facebook game. CCP is being downright cordial about pricing.

I'm at work so I can't see this money grab for myself but I'm willing to bet the "bizdev" section of CCP is fapping at these prices. Just like they are about the IP licences for 3rd party developers. Evil or Very Mad

Wow, and I thought Blizzard's sparkle pony was bad. I've bought real clothes for less. Doesn't make any sense that a clothing item costs more that some capitol ships. WTG CCP, you really have lost your mind. I'd post a blog about it, but I'd be afraid I'd have to cough up $99 for a license for that too.

What does a classic waist clincher have to do on a military blouse it looks so bad and unmilitary like. Make the male uniform unisex I do not need a waist clincher im not that fat!!!!

ALSO a bil for a full set of clothes I know its special vanity but it is over the top!

…yeah, but then they would have to make sure that more of them get destroyed to keep the demand up and the cash rolling in.

i'd expect jita > fountain with the shirt, for the monocle i'd demand nothing less than a teleporter that gives me access to jove space.

I almost never post rage in whine threads.

But this is truly the beginning of the end of EVE.

Well Done CCP.

Wow ccp.. the plex to aurum conversion seems pretty nuts, especially for a new player like me. Hopefully the market will get flooded & prices will drop?
Some pretty sweet art tho. Cant wait to see whats up next ;)

I hate it too when CCP forces me at gunpoint to buy things in game, and I have no choice but to comply.

Wait... they don't.

The sad part is they started from scratch in January 2011.

Hahaha. What is really amusing is that CCP devoted so many resources to this feature which no one will use. I hope all the fanbois who chanted Incarna and drank the Kool-Aid have fun working a full day's pay at $10 / hour to afford their pretty dress. What a waste.

And don't think it won't stop here, there will be more and more items needed for the RM Store pulling more and more resources from our game. During the discussion at the Alliance Tournament, there was no commitment to re-focusing assets on SPACESHIPS. 18 months my ass.

CCP Hammer no longer has anything to do with Eve as we know it, and is studying how to further deploy more RM items for Eve. We haven't even touched DUST which will be even worse, as they do intend to allow RM items which do affect game play, which will spill over to Eve.

And CCP Zinfandel? Not impressed at all. GB2 whatever hole you seem to enjoy sniffing.

I'd pay these prices... if it was for a design i submitted that only I will ever get.

This... this is crazy. It's not even good looking clothing, it's all the same brown/grey crap a college student would wear.

jeeze.... and I was all prepared to drop a plex or two on the store. I'm exactly who would have dropped 500 Aurum per item and bought out the store, but 2000.... !

This is the end of Micropayment

Let the glorious age of Macropayment begin!

But interesting that a mononocle is about the price auf a dreadnought. o0

Posted - 2011.06.21 23:53:00 - [117]

There are currently a half dozen CCP guys, and Zinfandel is among them, in the ingame HELP channel.

Lets everybody go over there and call them out on this BULL****

I like how they're synergizing their revenue streams to take advantage of new opportunities in the exciting world of macrotransactions, n1 n1.
