But then you dont have to MT, do you? You dont need to MT to play the game as you do today. No MT require to be good at shooting other spaceships. And the only reason you want to MT is if you want a monocle.

So stop spamming.

No! You clearly need to think outside the box. What if..

What if i made a game where you were required to pay a subscription AND I also used your emotional attachment to my game to coerce you into buying all kinds of virtual goods through MT?

Think of the possibilities, the profit!

CCP got where they are today by breaking the MMO mold.

By thinking outside the box.

By not becoming another WOW clone.

Now they are doing it again. And it will be successful.

You don't advance the MMO world through a lack of work, trashing your own community and charging them to fund your other projects. CCP didn't create EVE, the players did.

The really "funny" part is that CCP could have really done a cash cow move and been successful. How? Easy... paint shop.

Add a number of color slots on each ship, put a SMALL fee... perhaps 25-50 aur / colorslot and you suddenly can customize you ship to your hearts desire... colors that would go bye bye if the ship blows up of course. Suddenly we would have a formiddable rainbow of ships.

Or you can talk about high quality pixels and sell them at $60 a pop... and **** people off to no end.

I know one thing. I would NEVER spend money, isk or otherwise on a vanity item ala monocles. They serve no purpous and as such are completely useless... but allowing me to paint my ships... now that is something I would actually think about.

Blizzard is sitting on a pile of money because of sparkle mounts in their subscription game.

Their numbers didn't go down. Hell, they don't have in-game option for paying for MTs either.

Not it's not. It's not voluntary to have it in my game, the feature, the store, is there, and the clothes I want to buy with ISK, I cannot. It's voluntary to buy something with AUR... but that's not the point, and you misunderstood this again just now, as you did when you made the same point to me earlier.

This, and for the love of old amarrian god. No one is making you buy anything. If people want monocles let them have them. I feel like the old swg and wow community decided to join eve just to complain. Nothing is ever good enough for most of you and never will be, so be quiet already. Also either quit this game you hate so much or find a new hobby.

seriously who really gives a crap about cosmetics.. keep the MT clothing for ppl with over inflated wallets.. just don't slack on game development. if selling some virtual crap will increase the investment into eve go for it. ppl whining about not being able to get sparkly pants from npcs .. you can't be serious.

and MT is not mandatory, you don't need a friggen monocle to pwn better even though you might think you do.

I don't really give a **** about cosmetics tbh. However, if they are going to be in the game (like any content) I will make use of them... but I am totally unprepared to pay a single dime more for the privilege.

Sorry fanbois. Razz

I'm really not a fan, I can only just about hold 2 subs, all I'm saying is like any level headed business there needs to be ways to increase revenue. (and i have only a tiny amount of common business knowledge)

there is plenty of things in eve that loads of ppl are never going to get regardless of if you need to pay extra for it.

basically, if having these extra means of generating income will mean that eve won't die completely this year (unless all that is bullshi) then who cares, i'm not going to blow real money on cosmetics. but some ppl will. I'm just gunna look at it as a means of donation.
