I mean who is gonna buy a vanity item for 12.000 Aurum - 4 plex - 80$ dollars in real life money ?

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


I do believe it is intended as a money sink, to remove ISK from the game world, take ISK out of the game.

No doubt CCP plans to create many different tiers of PC clothes, like one tier where each item costs around 5 PLEX, one tier where each item costs around 0.5 PLEX, one tier where each item costs around 0.05 PLEX, one at around 0.005 PLEX, one at 50 PLEX, and so forth, all visually distinctive so that one can see - at a glance - the wealth of another PC.

I haven't tried CQ yet, and can't because I'm on a laptop and while it plays EVE in space just fine with 2 clients running on lowest graphics settings, I'm seriously worried about my laptop melting if I try CQ.

So I don't know what the clothes shop is like, but my guess, based on reading other people's forum posts, is that CCP started out by releasing only one price tier out of the many price tiers they have (always) had planned, and that one tier happens to be fairly high-end.

Am I guessing correctly?

You can buy current nex items for isk, a pair of boots is only 400,000,000 isk. Balanced right. CNR battleship or some boots.

I cancelled both my accounts not for the poor launch but over the general direction of ccp.

Dust being Ps3 only
Nex is a joke
Leaked pdf info
Bs dev attitudes and forum responses and lack thereof
Ignoring, improper use of Csm
24hour wardeck timer garbage allowing kill after cancel.
Citibank executive in leadership (corrupt organization crushing dreams of millions)


Some of these can be fixed, but after seeing CCPS REAL future vision i dont want any part of it.

You make FUNCOM look good ccp. What a sucker we all are.



Dust being Ps3 only - you can still play Eve on your pc... also there are very good reasons as to why it's PS3 exclusive - mainly due to microsoft being difficult to deal with

Nex is a joke Arrow then don't buy anything from it? Or are you jealous that your fwiends can afford monocles and you can't?
Leaked pdf info Arrow see CCP ZULU's response here http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&bid=932
Bs dev attitudes and forum responses and lack thereof Arrow they're doing the best they

Standard ccp alt/kiss*** answer. If you werent one of those, what would it bother to you that somebody is leaving the game ? You can use your rich daddy's cc to buy virtual pants or inflated ccp subscription taxes - grownups do real work for a living.

It's funny, people quoting the "Greed is Good", and bashing CCP, as many EVE players think greed is a virtue, when they apply it to the way they play the game.

If everyone could afford a ****ing monocle, then everyone would have one, and there wouldn't be a damn thing unusual or special about them. $2.50 means that every member of the playerbase who wanted, would be sporting one, just like Bad Messenger of Draketrain up there, with His golden monocle.

I figured a 30% reduction in price would be good, across the board, except maybe the boots which should probably go up 20%. Seriously, a good pair of boots costs money, which is why I just have shoes. Boots would be nice though. Sad Actually, my shoes are nice too, and cost 5x what my jeans do, and 10x what I pay for shirts usually.

Different type of clothing of course. If I was expecting to purchase clothes like those in the Vanity store, I'd probably be expecting to pay a lot more than I do for my shoes for a shirt and pants. My clothes are cheap, I'll admit it, but they get wrecked fast too, because I use them for work.

Whatever. I just hope ship paintjobs are cheaper than monocles.

CCP You are a joke, plain and simple.

12k aurum for an eye patch? 3600 aurum for a shirt?

a virtual god damn pixel shirt? you want 3600 aurum = 1 plex = 19.99 euro

This is not EVE Online but

Prada online

wtf and ffs

It's a money sink but it has nothing to do with isk. Here's an example: You buy three plexes. The first one you sell on the market for isk. That isk is now in your wallet. The second and third plex you use to buy a pair of pants. You can either wear the pants or you can sell the pants for isk. If you sell the pants for isk it goes into your wallet. You spend all that isk on other stuff. All that isk goes into someone else's wallet. The isk is still in the game. Effectively it goes no where.

If NeX is successful, you can expect plex to be in the 600mil to 1bil range eventually. That means longer grinds and MORE isk in the game since more people will mission which generates isk out of thin air. Because of what is suspected to eventually be available in the NeX, it will drive the price of plex upwards.

I do believe CCP wants a smaller, more affluent player base. The prices in the NeX should tell anyone interested the same.

As an above poster said... BOYCOTT. However you like, cancel subs or simply don't use the NEX at all. Just like eve gate, maybe if we are lucky people will forget about it and it won't mean anything to us.

CCP HAD to make the prices so high in order to offset all the accounts they are losing, it was brilliant foresight on CCP's side/

I personaly find the "Free 1K Aurum" message as more of an insult than a gift. My character is a look-alike of me (pointing out female in specific) and all i can afford is "MEN's" boots? has CCP gone Sexist or is this just a mistake? i hope mistake.Mad

How else could CCP afford to keep a staff of pro GM's that handle petitions in a timely manner?

Oh wait, they don't. And that's not even to mention the terribad nature of the mission system, or the 100 count supercap blob paid for by bot alliances that run this game.

But seriously, they should have just focused on walking in stations instead of this nonsense. If you're going to do an Item-PLEX exchange system, do one that benefits players in a real way, like remaps for PLEX. Or at least let me put my 10 units of 'Prostitute' in my Captain's Quarters.

But twelve-thousand Aurum. Damn. Come to think of it, I can buy a shirt at Ralph Lauren for that.
