You will find lots of corps have rules about what to do in them such as not killing fellow alliance members.

Sure you ban the use of Aurum and stuff, but let me ask this simple question, because this is what makes or breaks this as a matter of fact.

When it comes to RMT within PL and those alliances that sign on this, what is your stance on this, because banning the use of Aurum items is VERY hypocrytical if you don't ban the use of RMT and botting. So the question is simple, do you ban the use of RMT and botting or do you take a don't ask don't tell stance on it.

I am aware i am starting abit of a problem for myself here, but as i said. If you allow botting and RMT, Aurum is the least of your issues to sort out. Also, botting and RMT hurts the game more than this AURUM stuff ever will.

A last edit: if it is that you do allow RMT and botting, why should people follow your example?


This has always been a silly argument to me.

CCP doesn't care a damn thing about any of this, the bots are subs, they ban accounts every so often when the forum noise gets to loud, but on the whole, the company that makes your game doesn't care, in fact, the bots add subs, and if anybody doubts that CCP is after cash and cash only this latest expansion should be all the proof you need.

I'd even go so far as to say that as soon as they find a way to make money off of bot programs that they will stop doing that.


RMT is a different thing entirely, CCP says they don't like it, and Shamis agrees, hence all our money going into things like supers and titans and a metric ass ton of command ships for our fleet, and things like tengu reimbursement.

Now I call bull**** on CCP not liking RMT, what they don't like is that other people are making money off of it besides them. They've opened the can that allows this, they need to deal with it.

Up until tuesday I was completely against it, but seeing CCP try for every dime they can get in this patch, and reading that stupid internal article that they were dumb enough to let slip, I now have no compulsions against it either way.

If CCP are going to gouge players for every dime they can, then I'd say the players have every right to do whatever they can to replace the money CCP is digging from their wallets.

Control freak much. So now some alliances feel the need to police what their members spend their isk/RL cash on. Seriously get over it, CCP put in some OPTIONAL microtransaction items and you can still purchase them for isk if you want too, vanity MT items DO NOT EFFECT YOUR GAMEPLAY so why do you even care.

It's not unusual at all for corps to question and discipline shoddy business decisions, failfits and facepalm-worthy tactics. Some have strict requirements for admission: high SP count, specific skill sets, scouting/FC/PvP experience, etc. If I'm running a corp that focuses on maxing out combat effectiveness, and you choose a new shirt over a better ship, better equipment, or even a better ship for your wingmate, I'd have to question whether your interests are the corp's interests.

This may not be how you'd roll, but that's why you won't be in one of these corps. These corps want a certain kind of person, and they have decided that buying NEx stuff is a clear enough indicator that a pilot isn't one of those people.

This right here. I'm still learning to PvP, but I can completely understand this point of view. Team play in alliances like PL is paramount to success... and if you're dropping money on useless crap when you could be faction fitting a new T3 battleship for the good of your alliance/corporation, your priorities are not in line with theirs. Simple as that.

I wouldn't have so much of an issue with said items if they weren't so exorbitantly priced... but $70 USD for a useless monocle? Really?? I'd rather buy myself a couple new faction fit Dramiels. :\

Just a newb here. Still in a newb Corp, but wanted to say I support this initiative fully. I didn't join this game only to find everyone's sub fees have been used to implement a shoddy tech-demo for some other MMO.

I hope the griefing lasts long and reaches far.

I fully support this plan and i think it's the best course of action if we want the game we love to keep going.

If things continue then players will lose more and more control over what happens in EVE. More things (ships and items) will be created and sold by CCP and not the player. This will break the one thing that makes eve unique... the player driven economy.

The big alliances/corporations are the only people who can make a difference here.

So what if the pilot chooses to buy it with RL cash instead of isk? What if the pilot has a ton of extra isk laying around? If the pilot can afford it (lemme give you a hint, those buying the NEX stuff aren't deciding between ships and vanity items, they can afford both) then why should you give a crap.

As for buying ships for wingmates, if your buying ships for corpmates that corpmate is violating the first rule of eve "dont fly what you cant afford to lose".

So basically if they can afford the vanity stuff then who the hell cares if they buy it

This could be bordering on harassment of players, a form of collusion that is an attempt to drive people out of a game that, because of a feature CCP has made legal... an intentional act to stymie a persons game play,.. i hope everyone who does this gets a reverse ban

But yet you want to control how someone spends their money?... so y not just kick/ban anyone who buys Plex's, or better yet ban/kick anyone who actually pays a Subscription...lol

oh btw, Hulkageddon is something totally different then what your proposing... If your just waking up Micro-transactions have been around for many years, and it's the way of the future, Micro-transaction actually bring in more money to a company then a stagnant monthly fee... so i could expect the CCP will one day totally drop a monthly sub, in favor of MTs
