T'Amber has left out the option to remove it all together. So here you can vote if you want Micro Transactions removed altogether, and if the existing vanity items should be turned into actual game content (i.e. as LP store rewards for the militia, etc.).

Players will still be able to spend real money on PLEX and turn it into ISKs. Only will there be no additional code in the game for a secondary currency, nor will there be a Noble Exchange. ISK will remain as the only currency. Players, who want items for their vanity need to obtain them as before, through playing the game.

Check the "Support this topic" box and post "Yes" for your support, or otherwise leave a commentary.

Clarification: why do I not want PLEX to be removed, too? Because PLEX brought many new players into the game. It is also the lesser of two evil, with the other evil being the goldsellers, but in return did we get a play-for-free model and it allowed the EVE community to grow. What we bought with our subscriptions, if you so will, was an expansion of the EVE community.

I do not believe in any kind of gain coming from micro transactions for us. So I rather would like to see the militia getting some uniforms with which they can identify and distinguish themselves with, which then will likely been seen as a gain by a part of the community. It will contribute to their game play and makes EVE more attractive to all gamers and has got a good chance to increase the community and to provide a long-term value for the game. This just as an example of what clothing can be used for. Items of vanity are not a gain. I actually find it hard to come up with things to add to the game that are worse than vanity items.

Edit: corrected typing.
Edit: clarification.

PS: Please bump my thread on General Discussion, which links to this one.

I'll resubscribe if we get rid of this bad idea.
Why wasn't there a poll before they brought micro-transactions to the game? Or are they all just to selfish?


Is my signature conflicting with the ability to see the "Support this topic" box? :/

I will not play a subscription game that also uses microtransactions. The two income sources are mutually exclusive.

Suddenly introducing microtransactions to a game that had gone without them for the better part of a decade is even worse. If CCP is in desperate need of more income, of which there has been no indication, I would rather support raising base subscription price by $1-$2.

No microtransactions, or in this case, megatransactions.

Yes.

I have been asking for this since the release of Incarna. It is completely game-destroying and does nothing to support the game we all fell in love with. (remember, we all subscribed *before* Incarna).

Come on CCP, you guys always wanted to be different from everyone else. Why not just say no to micro-transaction and not conform to the industry standard.

Remove this plague that is micro-transactions.
