Not supported pvp would lack consequence if someone gets podkilled. Monocle is vanity item, implant is not.

Med clones are moved "instantly" by the simple fact that all they do is change where the destination station of your brain scan is. You don't "have" a clone until you die -- essentially it's a statement of "yeah, we promise to have a clone of your requested grade at the time of your unfortunate end" from the medical facilities. This is why jumpclones have to be moved by you...


Lore FAIL.
Please do read it first before speaking with authority.

I just can't resist flawed arguements:
Originally by: Rawbone
Implants add to ones ability to kill whereas monocles just add to the satisfaction.

Then you're saying that mining, scanning, hacking, archeology, etc. implants shouldn't be destroyed either?

Let 'em all burn! (yes, monocles are self-desribed implants)

I can't resist flawed logic.
When did I say that implants shouldn't be destroyed. In referring to the fact that learning/PvP implants help ones ability to kill, I can't see where it says that this should exempt carebear implants from destruction. Pull your head out of your ass and read the comments before you quote them. The only ones comparing monocles to implants are the forum warriors, and choosing to describe them as implants doesn't make them so, just like calling onself a pvper doesn't make one a pvper.

Nah, you took the stance of “let it go already” which argues for the status quo and supported that with the dichotomy of “Implants add to ones ability to kill whereas monocles just add to the satisfaction.” Your argument thus favored the status quo of monocles being indestructible because they provided no “ability to kill” -- incidentally, neither do the implants I listed.

Evidently you need to “pull your head out of your ass and read the comments before quoting them” because I’m making no comparison, only stating fact that in its own item description it calls itself an implant – don’t be so hard on yourself “forum warrior”

A common implant found throughout New Eden, the Looking Glass ocular implant offers vision enhancement or replacement beyond the capabilities of low-profile prosthetics. Filters, lenses, NeoCom interface, and blackbox video recorders are all standard issue with this implant.

But now that you are saying implants should be destroyed, I’m so glad I could convince you that monocles (which are implants as seen in the description) should be destructable. Gold star for you, kiddo!
Your stupidity is staggering and sadly can't be fixed.
Call a monocle what ever you want. It has no impact on the game save for ****ing off whiners. I'll simplify things for you then: Ability enhancing implants, that is to say implants that enhance abilities that lead to ones improvement in Eve should be destroyed upon podding. Cosmetic implants- impact eve in no way and should no more be destroyed than one's clothes. Congratulations though, I'll accept that a monocle can be an implant, just not one that should be whined into destruction. You are now free to continue your forum war, as I've already said, I can't fix stupid so I'll leave you be.

I take it as a compliment when I’m insulted without any supporting evidence

Indeed, plucking out a good eye, scaring your face, and jamming in a piece of metal may be ‘cosmetic’ to some, but speaking for an equal portion of the EVE base – that isn’t ‘cosmetic,’ it’s... lets just say I can’t fix that either. In any case, the use of Aurum and thus PLEX has an ‘impact’ on the market and the implant monocle has a (questionable) aesthetic 'improvement.' Using your terms ('cosmetic', 'impact', and 'improvement') you've again defined the monocle as destructible. Just stick to offering me congratulations.

Let 'em all burn!

If you are not in a bubble you spam the warp out button when your ship is in structure and just keep spamming it. The thing that determines if you get caught is if you have internet or client latency - that is how good is computer and your connection.

So if you have a good computer and good internet connection you can fly with implants which give you a very large advantage over people who do not have a great internet connection or computer.

Is this good for the game?

Benefits must come with increased risk.

Monocles bring no benefits therefore should have no additional risk.

Not supported.


Agreed, this is just a childish "temper tantrum" idea...

How would changing a completely different item make more monocles be destroyed? That makes no sense whatsoever.

Bitter children who fail so bad at life and EVE they STILL cannot afford a monocle 3 months later Laughing

Whoa, steady your temper there Jack. While this is indeed a "temper tantrum" thread you missed the fact that it's something of a troll. Through its sarcastic/hyperbolic direction it brings attention to the fact that the monocle -- which in its own description refers to itself as an implant -- is for no logical reason immune to destruction and thus goes against the precedent of all implants being destructible. Essentially CCP needs to HTFU

And monocles do bring a (questional) aesthetic benefit

Let 'em all burn!

I think everyone is forgetting something.

Just because you get podded doesn't mean that your portrait changes. Think of it like this. Let's say you got your passport photo done back in 99' while you had a mullet. Ten years down the road, that passport picture will still have a goofy ass mullet, even if you don't. So, unless you change your portrait, you'll still 'have' an uber l33t sick m0nocle. It shouldn't be destroyed (cause it doesn't grant bonuses anyway) and unless you change your portrait manually, it should appear that you always have one. Very Happy

But then again, why does it matter? It doesn't grant bonuses, so its an issue of haters-gonna-hate.

Not supported.

Implants, clothes , in fact anything on your "person" should be destroyed or at least chance dropped when you get podded.


So... you keep you're clothes in pod? Rolling Eyes

Not supported.

I didn’t forget, but I think of it like this (using your scenario):

Let’s say back in ’99 you had this really expensive necklace you wore for your passport photo. Ten years down the road that passport photo still has the necklace, but it also has that goofy haircut. You want to change your photo to reflect your improved tastes, but suddenly you remember you lost your prized necklace. Guess you’ll have to buy it again or do without.

It matters because it sets a precedent of items being invulnerable in EVE -- invulnerability for items goes against lore and logic -- and you are arguing for making items invulnerable

It grants a (questionable) aesthetic bonus

I agree that you don’t wear clothes in the pod -- but I also think that every station having every item for every pilot that owns the item is equally Rolling Eyes. If you own something, you take it with you or you don’t have it at the moment

CCP needs to HTFU and let 'em all burn
