This is the first time I have posted, or even visited, this section of the forums, but I had thought of something in regards to the NEX store. I posted it in the comments thread for Zulu's latest blog, and will post it here for convenience.

We (the players through the CSM) need to be very specific about the future of the NEX. And make sure that CCP is the same. I don't mean getting rid of it, that won't happen since they put a lot of resources into development. However, I do see CCP stating for now that they will not introduce items that will produce an in game advantage. But I don't think that will cover all of the possibilities. Here is what I can see happening.

CCP, and the CSM, will come to the agreement, like I said above, and most of the players will be satisfied. But, about a year down the road, when DUST is due to release, or right after, Pirate Faction Tower BPCs will show up in the NEX. (And I would hate to see the RL $ cost on those, after all how much is a RL skysc****r?) There will be a lot of minor gripes and forum rage, but most people will be happy that they can now get them again.

CCP's response will be something along the lines of, "We did not introduce anything that provides an in game advantage, the towers are already in the game." Most people will be satisfied with this answer, because well, its true. Then other items will be reintroduced and accepted for the same reason. And soon after that will be the P2W items.

Yes, this may be a conspiracy theory, but I can see CCP doing this. Please get them to agree to if something has in game stats, it will not be sold in the NEX. We can't allow them wiggle room, or loopholes that they can say, "We didn't go back on our word. See?"

Thank you for taking the time to read this, if you did. I'm not really saying this WILL happen, but I can see them doing it.

The CSM is irrelevant, CCP will do whatever it is they want to do. The CSM is just a PR expense.

Other than that, I am for one are for being able to buy pretty much anything via NEX and I don't see any type of problem with it, neither do the thousands of other players who aren't going all emo on the forums.

Improvise, adapt, overcome ..., or walk away (which you and all the other forum warriors won't do). Simple as that.
