Contact Massively with a news tip. Get the word out, make CCP the mockery it deserves to be.

And contacted. Wonder how long it will take before articles start to pop up about this.

Hey CCP, now that we've got clothes that people have to pay for, can you please make all free clothes and hairstyles available on all races?


For a price, sure.

Let's say... 6 PLEX?

The best is the 1000 or so aurum difference between shades of womens shirts.

I was seriously going to buy an item or two. Not now, no freakin way.

Well, I'm definitely not going to buy any "vanity" items. I can't even get 400 mil ISK which is about what a plex costs. It's absolutely insane to suggest that one can either buy plex off another player in game with ISK or pay IRL cash. So, 15 dollars for one little article of clothing? Where's the rationale here? Why not just allow us to use ISK to purchase novelty stuff instead of creating a whole separate currency that has a really ****ty exchange rate?

I think they forgot to subtract a zero when they made the NEX prices. Either that or this is a serious troll. No way they would expect people to pay $40 for an internet space monocle; even if it is serious business.

Ok I take back what I said earlier. CCP deserves a double facepalm for this.

I seriously can't believe it is possible for you to be quite this ****ing dense.

What's sad about this whole debacle is how CCP is taking it so lightheartedly from their posts they are putting in the help channel chat.

On the Plus Side, I doubt that the micro-transaction PLEX sink will consume a lot of PLEX, so PLEX prices shouldn't increase significantly.

CCP really needs to dump that marketing-drivel-spewing ******. He's definately one of the main driving forces behind this whole Incarna failcascade.

He'd be able to afford a titan if he hadn't blown his savings on a pair of undies!

That sort of ****ed me off. CCP introduces a new feature in the game that only people who can afford to throw away IRL money to actually use? It's ******ed.

One should be able to purchase all things in game with ONE currency -- ISK. Whoever thought up the AUR idea needs to be taken out back and smashed over the head with several bongs until they realize the erro of their ways.

AUR prices will probably stabilize in long run, but I'm certainly not going to buy a PLEX just so I can get a shirt.

CCP's official position: **** the poors!

Look CCP, if you introduce new functionality that you force on eve players -- you should probably try to be a little less obvious about fleecing people out of their money. It's a bit ridiculous to use the rationale that just because these items are for vanity purposes and not gameplay related doesn't justify the fact that you're taking a rubber band to our balls.

I dunno, apparently a lot of people really wanted these vanity items, yet have a mortal fear of PLEX/AUR.

Sounds like they'll be selling like hotcakes as soon as they're sold for ISK.

I didn't get EVE rich by spending ISK on over-priced ****... This better fall in price the coming months else it's pretty dead in the water.

However THIS DOES NOT JUSTIFY AURUM PRICES. I don't care for avatar stuff but do love colelcting and flying rare/expensive ships. I can see AURUM ships costing tens of billions for what is effectively a reskin.

That makes me sad.

So much crying for something that is purely cosmetic, the fix to the issue is easy, just don't buy it and your problem is gone.

If the Ocular implant gives you x-ray vision, then it's possibly worth it.

You, sir, have won EVE.
