I understand the point but I'm uncomfortable with this because I can't help but think that if these clothes were giving in game bonuses then who would still ban use of it?

Since the items do nothing it's easy but if they had an impact in game, what you are fighting against I know then it would be much harder to ban them.

I would only support this if someone used Aur to buy ships, standings, or skills. Last time I checked this hasnt happened.

I could care less about using Aur to buy clothing, monacles, or painting your rifter hot pink.

Everytime I got podded my body was floating naked through space.

Does that mean we can loot corpses and cut off some implants.

If the former wearer sh.it.ted in his pants before he got podded will there be a station service for cleaning them?

Will the cleaner demand payment in AUR?

If the item is a bit seized, will there be a a station service to separate the thing from the corpse?

Can I adjust my guns so it will shoot my opponents face so his clothes remain undamaged?

Assumed I can only reprocess the item by pulling it out of my opponents a.ss. would I have to label this fact when reselling?

Like "Pulled out of (enter name) as.s" instead of "Made in Jita"

Speaking about pulling something out of someone´s a.ss: Who pulled the whole MT thing out of what investors arse?

Ban recruitment of any player with current or past portraits which show that he/she has purchased real money items.


If only a few prominent CEOs sign onto this and get the word out, it could very well have a domino affect.


Stupid idea is stupid.
Why should clothing bother anyone at all? The real "issue" with aurum was the idea of micro transactions beyond vanity items..like pay to win type items. Not clothing. And not recruiting someone because they bought something to make their character more to their liking is just dumb.

At that point you even don´t have a chance to find out who has bought such a thing and who did not.

So stupid idea. Just saying.

The thing with a monoclegeddon, is it would only be for a short period of time. I would be more infavor of a trust fund that would pay for constant WD's of corps who harbour these offenders. They are only looking for attention, so give them some. Sooner or later they will have to all band together (easy single target) or hide in NPC corps.

Those who make the money for this to be peanuts is most likely involved in some of the larger clans talking about this.


Someone said that earlier in this thread. I find that cute. "Wealthier" players who dont actually spend money to play cause they incursion pvp scam whatever for ingame money to buy plex'es. Get off your high horse you self righteous lamers.

The "Wealthy" people are the ones who actually pay to play with the money they earn in real life. If they want to buy pixel panties who else should give a dam. Personally, i dont care for the MT stuff as long as it doesnt become game breaking. That would upset me but still. I wont go around acting like a 3 year old who lost thier lollipop. Quit acting like spoiled children and grow up. Galactic tantrum at Jita anyone?

Till they release USD-for-ships/skills/power then go back into your corners and get over it

i love how a lot people responding in this thread doesnt realize that the real problem is the possibility of CCP introducing non-vanity items into the AUR market and not because of the vanity items themselves.

we're trying to stop the problem before it even happens.

the title of the thread specifically says "Clothes" thats specifically implies the clothing items which have already been released. People are acting like immature brats over stuff thats as stupid as it is expensive. I stated my opinion on that matter. Pixel panties isnt worth a galactic tantrum.

Opposition for US dollars-for-power i can agree with, and a motion i could side with. But until that is released or announced theres really no justification to act like i've seen this past week

Perfect, now if only we could get CCP to log on as normal players so we can gank them.

And what would stop these people from creating their own corp? We are sitting in a sandbox, you know. Being in a corp doesn't technically make or break the game.

I agree wholeheartedly. People who do not have a billion plus to spend on vanity items war-decing people who do have a billion to spare is a ****ing epic idea.

+1 fully supported

anyone who cant get into anywhere else, join my corp, 2% tax, no rules, no reds or blues, do as you wish, no CTAs, no forums, no official fittings, no corp ops, no TS or vent - literally no rules ! pretty easy IMHO and cheaper than being in npc corp,

heck i may even resub with plex in sept or whenever this shizzle runs out if enough waifs and strays sign up.

feel free to bring your monocles, boots, shirts, whatever unlike the original SS, SS-20 does not discriminate!

no rules ! you wanna run misisons, run missions! you wanna mine, mine! you wanna pirate, you pirate.

They were an alliance called BoB, and they cheated like mother ****ers.

Also, this thread is pretty short sighted. You'll just end up with alliances of MT players vs. alliances of non-MT players.

im personally torn on this issue, the logical part of me simply says to leave well enough alone and let the people buy their $60 monocles, but then a more practical reasoning kicks in when i see somone i am about to recruit...


if said person cares more about their appearance than firepower or mining speed, i have no use for them in my corp. if you want to look pretty, thats fine, but i would personally never hire the likes of you as you would be useless to my corp.

personally i would like an ability to simply hide the aur amount when i hover over my wallet, it gives the feel of a free to play game that tries to entice you to buy items at every turn.

if you apply to my humble corp and you wear a monocle, i dont care what your skills are. you are a shallow drone who cares about appearance instead of results, i will not recruit you. +1

on another note, incarna could be fixed by simply causing you to appear in the old hangar when you dock and then have a "disembark" button that would cause you to leave your pod and load the station environment...
