mod locked other thread saying "no need to have multiple threads" have we not had multiple threads all day on here with none being locked ???? why now lol


That's my question. They're letting the other Incarna/macrotransaction/hardware failure/lost bonus threads stay, but squashing this down to one thread? Hoping it'll fall off of the front page?

Anyone with even a 1/4 of a brain can see this is fake and not real. Look at all the grammatical and spelling errors.


i wouldnt expect people that had english as a second languages to get the grammar spot on


Tell me this... Are they using Scandinavian grammer in an English language? That is the telltale sign that their first language is Scandinavian.

I see these errors daily at work, I can even tell when somebodies 1st language is Russian; Ukranian, Romanin etc by the grammer they ues.

Everybody uses their native grammer but only translate the words, but apply the wrong grammer, or fall back to their grammer when in doubt.

Having been surrounded and had to learn a few languages myself :P


Paste a snippet here maybe I can tell you.




Grammar.

i'm still wondering its not locked, i fully expected it to be within minutes.

maybe they are just happy its finally out, so they can move on. it would be the right thing to do, i would even write a devblog laying out the way EVE will go. So every customer can choose.

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

Given the drama surrounding the Incarna launch, you have to wonder if CCP didn't decide to go ahead and "leak" the document on the grounds that the emo-rage-butthurt can't get any worse.

All things said, it is a pretty slick and well presented document. It makes it sound as if CCP has a plan, a plan that they've put serious thought into it.

Well CCP is aware of the post and its claims...yet there is no official comment.
If it was fake then they would have just said "Its a fake" and it would have been done.

It almost doesn't matter if it's real or fake. The fact that we can't tell shows just how far into the depths CCP has plunged with this expansion.

This is convenient for me, since I was looking at TOR and Secret World anyway. Very Happy

Some points to note (from the document)


One other service we’re looking at is selling faction standings.
We want to offer convenience for a price

If you happen to be economically challenged or just don’t trust the PlayStation Network with your credit card details, you can trade ISK with other players for some real money currency, just like you can with PLEX today. You can also do the opposite and exchange purchased realmoney currency for ISK, too.

Both work for us as long as money is being spent.




First comment is game changing and BAD, they told us they wouldn't do game changing stuff, THESE points say otherwise. They are looking at game changing points.

The 2nd point is the most interesting and benificial to players who dont want to pump in real money (like me) because it isn't "disposable" in the amounts they want or are repulsed by it. They don't care, as long as money is being spent, fine.

However, it does sound like they want people to profit with REAL MONEY by their use of the term "real money", is that fait currencies we all live by today? or AUR or something else? That part is kind of unclear to me if they allow us to take money OUT of the game for our wallets, that sounds like completing the circle.

lulz, everyone that bought something in that shop should really read that pdf from that link.

especially that part about the comparison between the golf player and the eve pirate made me laugh hard.

when this piece of paper is really confirmed as true, i regret i started to play this game 3 month ago, because so far it is really good.

Well, if that's where EVE is going, count me out.

I've played EVE since beta, and followed CCP as it's grown as a company. If that document is the real deal, coupled with macro-transactions, then the CCP I 'grew up' with is no more.

Reynir Haršarson, Žorolfur Beck and Ķvar Kristjįnsson, is this the game you envisioned while you were playing Ultima? When did you give up on careing?

So you hope your data'll get compromised?

It's pretty rude to discuss/quote a CCP leaked document on their own forums.

Just sayin'


I agree. But it's even MORE rude for CCP to do any kind of RMT at all - plex included. So yea, I think we, investors of EVE have a right to be a little ticked off about our product - EVE Online is being handled and the direction it is taking.

Perhaps they just got themselves in a bad financial position, and the company things this is the only way out/forward?

I think when Kieron lef is about when we entered this mess. Maybe he saw something like this coming in his position and jumped ship far before we saw anything about it.

LOL Instead of locking threads for trolls or other reasons, ccp is locking threads for "Multiple posts" and pointing them here. They aren't even denying it!


This.

As soon as CCP offer items that go beyond vanity items I'll stop playing (and I don't mean that as an idle threat that so many people throw around these days). I play F2P games that have MT and I spend money on them (World of Tanks being one), but I couldn't justify paying a subscription fee and then some micro-transactions on top of that just to be competitive with my peers.

I fear that's the way CCP will go. If you look at MMOs that use MT, many of them make more money now than they did when they had a standard subscription model. Turbine's Dungeons and Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online and Star Trek Online being 3 examples. Funcom's Age of Conan is going F2P, so they are also jumping on the bandwagon. There are probably more examples that I have missed. These are baby steps, if they are successful why wouldn't they try and take it further? Wouldn't you from a business standpoint?

And you wanna know the real kicker? I just subbed for 3 months, about 10 hours ago...

Hmm good read tbh, not really much to worrie about.
Most quotes are made in a ****ty way and just take all the negative comments.

The Yes section, of Kristoffer Touborg, makes me kinda worried tho, he seems to have a lot of cash so he can keep up with other wealthy players once they implant more important items to that store.
How ever, the No from John Turbefield, makes it a bit better cause he seems to know what the fack hes talking about.

The middle part however makes me shiver only because of the tittle "Fighting wars with perseverance and real money".
Dint read it cause Dust isnt my thing, tho i still have to see how this is gonna affect my gameplay later on. Might read it tomorrow.

How ever after reading the last part i kinda calmed down and started to see that most people are indeed over reacting. Aslong as we keep giving feedback about what we want, they ball will eventually begin to roll our way. Since the micro transaction are gonna be CCP its main income after a period of time. And thus iff they dont listen that income will drop and eve comes to a stand still.

Over all it was a good read tbh, much like reading a Tech-Net folder tbh. There are indeed some wierd quotes and lines in it, and iff you put them all in one line they indeed dont look good. But together it isnt half that bad, besides the title that is.

The Gordon Gekko Issue - I mean come on, we all know how that movie ended. Thats just intentionally spreading fear iff you ask me.

Annyways i'm still not to botherd with most changes, maybe its good that some whiners and gankers left the game to find themself back into WoW or guildwars where they came from in the first place.

Im seeing something i missed out on with EnB, and waited for a long time in eve, Station Walking (well ok room walking, but it has to start somewhere). Looks a lot better then EnB aswell iff you ask me so im a happy vet. The rest of you can suck my big E-Peen im not going to leave my ****load of investements till its all blown up, or so booring that i can be arsed to login.

You're ****ing kidding me right? MT for ships/ammo whatever isn't something to worry about in a PvP game focused on a player driven economy? Haha ok.
