Hah! I quoted the now famous yellow text asking whether or not AUR items were moving beyond vanity, and my post was deleted. I have been pretty silent thus far, but that, coupled with all of the other issues that are being flat out ignored and brushed aside...

My three accounts will not be renewed. Add them to the hundreds before me, and count on hundreds more. You people are a god damn joke.

ack! i made it to the end! now i can post while feeling informed! (kinda, its still the internet)

i want to give CCP the benefit of the doubt. therefore, i will cancel my sub when they introduce microtransactions for real stuff, not just monocles and boots.

i want a competitive MMORPG where the answer is "work harder" or "fight smarter" and not "shop more". i was hoping that eve would be that game. please don't make me go.

as far as money goes, i was planning on using the buddy program to get my cousin into the game. we had planned an elaborate event tommorow where me and my buddies on TS would closely moniter his first steps into this world and help him as much as we could. we've canceled the event, because his graphics card is worse than mine, i run CQ at 19 FPS on low settings, and we didnt have the heart to tell him to turn off load station enviros before he got into the game for the first time.

we thought that would show a lack of confidence in the game. after thought, we realized that we don't have any confidence. expect my entire corp(alliance?) to leave when i do, as soon as microtransactions for real stuff begins.

This is gonna be Eve's rapture. We'll all wake up in the morning and check in to see what has happened and all our better thinking Eve friends will have vanished without a trace all we'll find is their stuff.

this is one of the moments where we look at what our players do and less of what they say.


This is fricken mental.

They send out a PR person to handle our complaints. While they plan never to give a flying rats ass about a damn thing we say.

This just means Pann is as guilty of the CEO for lying to us. Since she had to know that this was the case from the get go. While pretending that it mattered. Guess that's why there was so little interaction with the customers in the thread. They just made the thread to pretend to be doing something about it.

They really think we are to stupid to see through this.

They made THOUSANDS of dollars overnight. They really don't care what the rest of the player base does.


There's really no evidence they made money. Those PLEX to fund the AUR could have been bought with ISK. Those PLEX bought that caused a price in PLEX prices doesn't mean those PLEX will be replaced aggressively if there is a decreased demand because there's less people willing to buy them.

Meaning, that CCP is losing money under the justification that 52 items were bought.

Really?

That's their best justification. 52 were purchased out of 400,000 players?

52 * 12000 AUR = 648,000 AUR.

If they had sold them for 300 AUR ($20/10=$2) they might have sold over 10,000 units = 3,000,000 AUR.

Micro-transactions don't work because they're unjustifiably expensive. They work because people think "EH, it's only $2" and then a before you know it a hundred thousand have been sold.

If CCP still has some level-minded top brass and this turns around...I really want SP to make up for all this. I'm happy to pay for them with PLEX...

Forum moderator's response to this shows their true colors and loyalty. They bit the bullet and should be fired at on sight (and their known alts). Nowhere in-game should be safe for them to dockup. Chase them back to their private sector of blocked space, they do not deserve to play with what's left of EVE.

No seriously... If the Titanic had crashed straight into the iceberg it would have stayed afloat.

Instead the idiot of a first officer tried to avoid the collision completely to save face and job, ending up gashing up the whole side of the ship dooming it to a watery grave.

A very apt similitude to what CCP has done the past months.

Not to mention the unsinkable design, doors to stop flooding, that didn't fill the entire doorHOLE.

An even better design, was the Wasa :)

I'm betting those 52 monocles were not bought with real money. I'd be veeeery surprised if, given the uproar and shaky ground that EVE as a game is on, anyone is buying GTC's at all right now...

52 monocles is a victory? You make CCP sound like total airheads Hilmar...

How many subs have you lost? How fast will your player base grow now that your company image is being torn apart? Does 52 virtual eye-pieces equate?

You are going to find yourselves with 10% of the subs and those people having to fork out HUGE amounts of $$$ to buy this crap because you'll then NEED the revenue to keep EVE alive at all...you can bin the other games for a start...

TL:DR EVE was doing well, it was growing and it was making history. Now you're going down in history as liars and cheats.

The thing about 'knee jerk' reactions is they are there for very good reasons.
When your hand withdraws from the hot plate without any committees input its to save you from burning your hand.

The ragenaughts running unstoppably through the forums,the long lines of ancient players threatening to unsub,the third party developers who are no longer developing?
Thats the smell of burning flesh.
