You misunderstand me.

If RL people bring their baggage from RL into the game, then that RL baggage exists in the game too.

Like with anything. ever.
Quote:
But of course the converse can be true. I wouldn't set fire to someone cus they are wearing clothees I cannot afford myself, but why do I feel that it is ok to do the same in a game. Oh but wait, "it's only a game" I hear you say - sure, but these arn't NPC your offending, they are real people. But it's ok because I can act like an idiot because the game gives me annoyminity.

Choosing to get offended in a game where PvP is the major contributing factor is a bad decision, you'd be offended all the time.
Quote:
It is said that the things you say and do while under the influence of alcohol reveals your true beliefs. Well I would say the same of people who hide behind their avatars, and it's pretty ugly.

Granted.
Quote:
Why the mini rant? Well I think that some of the angst and abuse hurled at CCP has been appalling, and the idea of monoclegeddon is just an expression of that bad feeling. And it is pretty obvious that if we weren't all hiding behind the anoyminity of an avatar, then we wouldn't be behaving like this. It is really two faced and cowardly.

If "abuse" and "angst" are synonyms for "concern" and "worry" then no, it isnt appalling. People really care about this game, these are the people that have put maybe 2-8 years into it, they would give anything to not have to watch it die.

It is the point of the game for some of those, to kill other players. CCP gives no restrictions on that, allowing hulkageddon openly so none of this is cowardice, it is the culture of eve at work. Albeit a bit descriminative of rich idiots.

I for one welcome our new monocled overlords. I also support our non-monocle wearing extremist resistance group. More conflict, means more ships blowing up...which amounts to fireworks, and increased demand for ships... I guess it'll be fun to watch space burn...or just a few fizzles (which is more than likely)

You didnt explain anything you said

"This is bad"

Without ANY coherent reason why.

Wanna calm down long enough to explain why [blah blah]



I'll explain for him.

Rock: The PLEX system is a system whereby CCP sells future game time that can be traded on the EVE market in return for ISK.

Tree: The AUR system is a system whereby that future game time is consumed for pretties.

In the case of PLEX CCP is selling the exact same thing they've always sold: subscription fees. They're just offering the option for people who live in richer countries to finance the accounts of people to whom 15 euro is a month's rent, but who have become successful enough in the game that 300 million (now 400 million) ISK is a pittance. That's actually kinda cool.

In the case of AUR, CCP is providing a system whereby the money invested in the PLEX is converted from game time to shinies. The money remains "game time" until the PLEX is either blown up (welcome to EVE) or converted to AUR. When it is converted to AUR, the money becomes a microtransaction.

The point is that PLEX has a real-dollar value which it retains until destroyed or converted. Just because the money is laundered a bit between the dollar and the AUR doesn't mean it isn't still a dollar. The AUR is in this sense no different from RMT stores in any of the Korean knockoff games that we all know and love so well. WOrse, it jacks up the price of PLEX, making it more difficult for PLEX to serve the nobler half of its purpose.

PLEX, on the other hand, are merely a physical manifestation of an existing payment scheme which can be traded on the EVE market like everything else in the game.

My main disappointment with all this is that I was hoping for avatar clothing to be player-designed and traded. It would've added a whole new element to the EVE market rather than threatening to suck life out of the existing elements.

This is all quibbling though. The monacle is a symbol that the community has chosen to pick on. The larger issue is that RMT is the death of a subscription game. It means CCP intends to milk EVE to death in order to fund its newer projects, a business plan so familiar it sparked rumors that CCP was being bought out by Sony.

You won't come down from highsec to kill me.

Originally by: Shouldnt Ofdidthat
I have been lurking the forums since I started playing about a year ago. This will be my only post. I have already decided that my 3 accounts will not be renewed in August. Until they expire I plan to liquidate and spend it all on suicide ganks in high sec. I will befriend new players (will be looking for first day players) and then pod them.

All my other plans seem futile with what has been started with the AUR rollout.

I am doing this because the introduction of new currency in the game will eventually be used to bypass the in-game mechanics and provide a cash leveling ability, thus destroying the concepts here that attracted me in the first place.

Thank you, live long, prosper


That sounds like fun, why don't you shoot me an invite sometime. I would love to pod you, err I mean help. YARRRR!!

Maybe not yet, but if this idea succeeds, the day will come where only people searching for pvp will buy that monocle.

I don't care about the monocles, but the first time I see a NEx bought ship or module.. You can bet it's worth I'll be hunting that ship down regardless of location.

I'll be buying an Aurum ship the moment it's released and it's one I can fly well.

People with monocles, we should form a council, and serve as advicers to the CSMs. Im sure fine gentelmen like ourselves can put alliances and politics behind us and serve a real purpose.

We already have a monocle club thread in CAOD. It was called "Official "F*ck you, I have a monocle" thread" until CCP Zymurgist renamed it to "Official". You should post there.

/emote puts on wizard hat

I think that you sir, along with your Long-limb-Roe-eating posh friends, are a traitor to the majority of citizens in New Eden! By supporting the "Noble" Exchange you are encouraging the capitalistic **** of everyday capsuleers who oppose Concord's newest marketplace.

I wholeheartedly support this initiative. Lets see these bastards hunted down in every corner of the galaxy, for the betterment of New Eden's future, which currently hangs in the balance between the will of the elected CSM, and the scumbags at Concord who simply want to get their filthy hands on our isk and AUR any shameless way they can!

I hope you fry in a cloning accident. We won't shed any tears.

explain what exactly is wrong with vanity items? It allows players to (pointlessly) enhance their characters, while providing CCP with money to continue developing this game we all play. If you dont want to take part in it, Dont click the NeX button and you'll never have to worry about monocles again.

You do realize you're basically complaining that the kid across the street has a cooler paintjob on his bike. Right?
