This microtransactions bull***t had gone too far.
This is obvious, that CSM still have not enough power to stop this madness. But what can we do about it? Cancelling subscription is too extreme at this point, forum whining is something CCP seems used too and immune.
What we still can influence at - is ignorance of those features we are not agree with.

So here is the deal - if you are alliance or corportion leader, you have a new way to fill your corp wallet. Let those guys with monocles in their pictures pay for good. Fine them 3bil if you see them wearing that aurum stuff.

Kids, this is what will happen to you when you've been in CSM for too long.

In his defense it is a mind-warping experience.

I'm Ix, and I approve of this message.

If I still played the game I'd charge per AUR. Something like 1 billion per 10,000 AUR.

I don't understand the hate towards microtransactions.

I do agree that they are stupid, however they are voluntary.... CPP will probably make some money off of this, but that isn't a problem because someone chose to pay that price for a monacle....

This is a communication desaster. MT are not a problem. I am not even sure that micro vs. macro really is a problem : with high prices DrEyjo can be sure that economy will not be screwed up by high volumes of items circulating all the sudden... Embarassed But the Fearless leak is and the worries that there's truth behind it. And I believe the CSM have enough credibility at CCP and with the community so it is worth they try and fix it. I am really worried when reading what Seleene wrote about his experiences from working at CCP : it has grown into a big company of people doing their job -- and fairly well so -- but being fully disconnected from the veteran player, maybe even from the average player. I also believe that EVE has shaped CCP to what it is, and it is a profitable enterprise, by the veteran players. I also agree with Meissa's position in his blog.

I understand CCP is currently laying the ground work for a much larger game universe. I appreciate that and I am willing to watch them build it. But they are so failing in communicating the intermediate steps. Giving that terrible still pic when opting out of CQ is a communication desaster. The technological short-comings are then only the spark to the oil barrel.

I'm with you. I plan on wearing no monocle or fancy pants....and using isk that would be spent on that toward fitting the right ship to accomplish my end goal: taking over the universe...which I think might be the goal of us all....

Really folks, instead of getting worked up over this, let's get back to playing the game. If you want microtransactions to fail in game, don't participate. CCP's going to make decisions based on market trends, just like we do when we decide what to bring to Jita to sell, and what to grind up to make things that sell in Jita. We're not going to waste our time trucking named survey scanners to market when we can grind them up for the mins to make some ammo, then swap those rounds with LP to get faction ammo to sell. It's supply and demand: if we don't demand, they'll stop supplying....

And about CQ, yeah, it's a little bit of a let down and the novelty wore off for me in about 89 seconds, but people have been asking about walking in stations for years, and now we've got it. Well, kind of...

I think the integration with Dust and possibly an expansion of WIS will add a layer of complexity to the game. In the interim, I'll continue to fly a virtual spaceship for relaxation and socialization with people.
