a specific part of the newsletter made me absolutely livid, so I have to share this

Quote:
Iíll give you an example of something I think provides value to our customer, which Iíd like to sell. Right now, you can store 50 personal fittings on our servers.
Thatís more than enough for the average EVE player, but for a subset of our users, itís too small a number. Why not be able to add more storage space for a small amount of money? Youíd even be able to upgrade it multiple times if you needed and permanently add this benefit to your character, making it even more valuable. And you know what? If you donít like paying for this, you can always buy a PLEX off the market, and never have to get your credit card out. I think thatís pretty goddamn cool, and Iím not entirely sure why that makes me ****** to some EVE players.


The problem is that you used to be able to have more then 50 fittings, due to them previously being stored on the user's computer instead of the server. Up until now this made no sense to me(50 fittings is too little even for a 6 month old pilot, it has been frustrating having to delete a fitting every time someone linked a good fit, whatnot), yet now that it shows the goal was to have years where people are accustomed to having more then 50 fittings, remove that feature and limit it to only 50 total, then sell an additional 50 fittings per 200 AUR as a feature! It's just wrong, the creepy kind.

CCP, you should make a rule for yourself. Don't try to sell for AUR anything that was previously available without AUR. It creates unnecessary anger, when there are plenty of things your could create anew and charge in addition to subscriptions.

Oh don't worry, they'll add the missing Faction Tower BPC's back in through the NeX too.

removing content so you can re-introduce it at a later date for AUR is a great way to make money

Yeh this annoyed me to, first CCP reduce the fittings we can store due to it now being server based and then talk about charging more for extra? Revert back to the old system please. 50 fittings is not enough for even my crappy 10 month old character and just causes me grief with import/export as now most of my fittings are stored in XML which means they need to be juggled.

I assume this is why the import/export feature is so crude so you can charge more later... Great move.

Seriously if they did that I am going to be ****ed. I had problems with moving stuff over and had to delete all my settings to get it to work.
