If you spend your money on non-functional pixels, I'm forced to wonder whether you're in the best ship for a given job/fight, whether your resources are being used to benefit the corp and/or alliance. I don't want my life depending on someone who would choose a monocle over faction mods or a better ship.
and what about those of us who can afford all the above? I could buy a monocle or shoes if i want...not going to dent my account much. If i want to buy a shiney pair of ruby slippers, dammit i can if i want!

Not to worry, obviously you don't have a life otherwise you'd have better things to do than tell people to buy an overpriced e-peen that's nothing but a target for corp griefers.

FACTION REPPERS OR GTFO!!!!111!!

Faction variants are more effective in a large number of cases, either by being more powerful themselves, or by allowing superior setups. A good reason to avoid them is that you can't afford them (and I'd never refuse to fly with someone for that reason). A bad reason is that you'd rather have a pair of boots.

No argument here. Just know that a number of corps will become unavailable to you as a result. Emergent game play at its finest!

You are aware that Incarna is being rolled out in phases....start with CQ, make sure they don't inject MAJOR problems and fix bugs, roll out next phase, fix bugs, etc until the full walking in station is open....

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

for what? for beaing reacher then you are?
all most mighty ceos in this game are ****ing bots.
They play only because of rtm, so ccp should disband all big alliance if they dont buy new cloths Very Happy

I'm aware that this is the claim.

I also remember FW and many other expansions. All tweaked and improved a little, but never given what was supposed to happen "eventually". But that's a very old, oft-mentioned problem.

Not sure what game-breaking bugs could show up in WiS since none of it actually affects anything. CQ's just a new way of opening existing HUD windows. It could be broken as all hell and no one's markets or ships would be affected.

Well, I am not a programmer, but I do work in the telecom industry as a network engineer. And it is amazing how injecting something new can bork up something that it shouldn't have.

I mentioned I am a WoW player coming here and hoping EVE can give me everything I want in a game. I know in WoW, some patches and expansions screwed up the craziest stuff. Why would a patch interfere with certain animation especially when they didn't tweak that animation? It happens. Conflicting lines of code.

I would rather they get individual toons working in their own quarters before opening up the station for all the toons to try to interact with envionment that contains other players. That is a HUGE difference.

Dammit, so far I never cared for the vanity crap.
But this thread with its totally unwarranted butthurt really makes me want to get a monocle. Thanks a lot!

I would ban recruitment of players who use bots or are involved into RMT, that would be far more important.

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


I agree that the CEO's of prominent corps should continue to bot and RMT instead.

C'mon people... the only thing you can see on the avatar potrait is that monocle, and you can't know if someone has vanity shoes, pants or other items. So this seems quite pointless.

If the vanity items had the normal price, I would buy something cool, why not. The price is problem, not the items.

Why do you care who will buy that stuff and who won't? I really don't see why that should be so important.

I know from experience that changes like this are only the beginning. A development team does not put this much effort into just a one time thing. It won't stop at vanity clothes, it WILL go into ships unless stopped now.

though you may have to strip search your potential recruits once socks and under garments become available.

Botting is still cool though right?

I mean do you ban players that have histories of botting or suspected botting? If yes cool if not...

Also seems like a lot of effort for a personal choice...dare I say fascist?

buying vanity items with ISK instead of $ it's quite the same actually
the PLEX involved in creating AUR and then vanity item(s) din not just got magically created by the tooth fairy

at the end of the day it's still the same thing

Would we be right to assume that PL will therefore kick anyone that buys any clothing?

Yes, don't recruit players who use incarna and that will kill it.

Because no player who uses the store to buy items will ever start his/her own corp, amirite?

derp


No, but it is an important sign, from the wealthier plaer-base saying "we do not approve".

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


Most people who are going to buy Aurum items don't give a flying **** about the "wealthier playerbase."

And rightly so, for the most part they're a bunch of elitist bastards, and the things they do are of little consequence to someone who makes enough ISK/Money to buy the vanity items.

I can't support this.
At least not until you explain why.

Real money items support CCP, CCP develops Eve.

The main point of any MMO is to, primarily, express yourself to a global community. (Which is what separates EVE from games such as Halo, where everyone looks the same.) The mediocre combat of Eve is only second to how one expresses themselves through their customization of their ship, avatar, and financial influence.

In this way, buying real-money items is very much a quintessential part of the whole gameplay experience.

You may as well say "we're not recruiting players who mine", or "we're not recruiting players who mission."

While you have every right to, it's not something that you should try to spread throughout the community. If anything, it's a personal liberty that everyone has the right to enjoy.

I personally suggest that no one join any corporation or alliance with such a stupid policy.
