While I don't mind CCP's vision for the future of EVE, I can get on board with getting rid of the cash shop.

Supported, and I say this with connections.

Any character I see caught buying RM items will be podded and kicked from corp if I have the power to have it done.

Afaik, how and why you allow or disallow people to be in your corp is your own business. You can't go whining to CCP because so and so wouldn't let you join (or remain a part of) their special club.

I will support this for the time that my canceled subscription has left on it! I also think anyone caught with a monicle on deserves to be podded, repeatedly if possible.

I actually really hope PL isn't trolling us, because this is honestly a fantastic idea. I'm completely serious.

The Trillionaire High Rollers Suicidal Bassoon Orkesta and my 5 other Corporations will not be accepting applications from anyone known to have purchased AURUM or AURUM store items. If accepted and found out after the fact they will be ganked to the full extent of the LAW.

The concept is pretty simple. CCP prides itself on the strong and interesting communities EVE has created.

Want to fight back against the idiocy of cash shops, which are sapping developer time and focus from actual gameplay?

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.



Out of interest, what do you want CCP do here; remove the MT store or just lower the price?

Personally I want to buy stuff for my char but not at the current prices. I also want the items to be produced by players.

Keep the items, but not on NEX, remove AUR from the game, our subscription fees already paid for the development of these items. Either pay a subscription, or pay MT for items, not both.

We all probably would have wanted to buy the stuff if it wasn't basically a gigantic waste of programing time.


Also the scalability is way off:

If a monocle is 60 bucks, whats it going to cost me to build a bar, and they had mentioned rent for these bars. I mean, I'm all about the social prospects that the stations bring, but if they think im shelling out hundreds of bucks to build a bar I think they're in for a shocking let down when they find that NOBODY is putting out that kind of money for something like this.


Couple that with the fact that the game is completely broken at times and instead of doing anything about that they've spent the past 10 months working on charging us sixty bucks for an eye patch.

What we want is for them to pull their head out of their ass, and fix the game instead of milking us for as much cash as they can get.

I need someone to do this for me me:

  • Make a webpage where people can submit the names of players who use MT.

  • Make a few corps that wardec the current corps of thos players on the list till they the CEO boot them OR they take all the MT items they have, put them in a secure container for everyone to see and PEW, PEW it!

  • suicide anyone on the list in NPC corp

  • Donate to thos corps so they can keep on wardec'ing (would get LOTS of fame).

  • CEOs put in their corp description that they do not recruit people who use MT and anyone who try to join get accepted, killed, booted and get a mail why.


I sadly cant do this myself as my computer dosent have shade module 3 so I cant play Crying or Very sad (or maybe Very Happy?)

People on the list could ofc give us the full API to prove that they never used MT

To anyone who think this is stupid:
$$$ for vanity items in itself is OK but if you dident read the leak, CCP soundwave want to sell ships and other things for $$$.
"So what?" you may ask but think about the sandbox part of eve and the industry!

I approve of the idea, although I will not follow it when recruiting for CLBC. Unfortunetally, I find it a good market and I will pusue it, I sense a lot of money can be made buying 2nd-hand monocles /other stuff and reselling them over and over again.

I, however, will NOT buy any vanity items for aurum, unless CCP shaves off one zero from each of the prices.I find my $ worth far more than a monocle,etc.

I'd also like to express my deep sadness because of the greed and stupidity behind setting the prices as they are. I'd also like to clarify I'm FOR THE NOBLE EXCHANGE IDEA, not for how it was implemented. Implementation with just a handfull of items with insane price was a terrible mistake and I hope the person who made that decision gets fired.

Let’s say the items had special abilities that only applied to “walk in stations”, would you guys be opposed to the high price tag? (Something less that $60 though)

For example, the monocle could give you the ability to identify war targets, criminals or people with a bounty on their heads...

The items would still serve as vanity items for stupid people with too much money but it would also allow a corp/group to kit a scout player out for a specific job.

All of you "+1+1+1 lats wardekk n podz da NEX bad d00dz" tools are impotent posers. Most of you reside in terrible high-sec carebear corporations, and couldn't fight your way out of a wet paper bag even if it meant missing out on a Flobots performance. You whine and moan about some EVE eyepixels, but how many times have you picketed corn/rice/gas price hikes outside your politicians' offices? You're doing this, here, because it's easy.

For the boycott supporters, this is one of the few instances where the powerless can exert a modicum of influence, and a trolling bonanza for a few others. Do you want CCP's MT venture to fail? Then ignore the feature and the goods being sold. Srtting yourself on fire and rolling in the mud to try and get others' attention means that CCP's vision has merit, and you simply fear being replaced by a larger, more relevant demographic.

Do I support this new MT deal? No. Do I want to pick up an eyepiece just to collect the tears and empty threats of the castrated iPod-toting sheeple who think their opinions and fair-trade coffee actually matter? Yeah, I do. It's a tough choice. On the one hand, I can steer this game's development in a favorable direction. On the other, I can easily buy the glass eye and that faction armor repairer you seem to think is both mutually exclusive to the former and will guarantee combat superiority against a player who has plentiful ISK/understanding of game mechanics.

Tough choice indeed.
