Seems the current move by CCP alts/fanbois is to make everyone think only cool people have the monocle.

And to make it cool by acting all edgy about having one. That only those with balls have will have one therefore its cool. Your not hardboiled without a monocle.

I cant be the only only one that has seen the rash of monocle threads started by monocle owners. CCP give you guys a free monocle to advertise and force the "its cool to have one" meme.

There are also the rationalizing away the costs threads too.

CCP spin control out in full force.

Edit: cant forget all these, "MTs not so bad" threads either. Seems this is the PR strategy until the CSM where they tell us they are doing MT no matter what.

You should get a monocle too and stop spamming forums with trolls.

Quite a few of them are trolling for fun and games, perhaps marketing for monoclegedon too.

I can only imagine you are in bed with CCP.

Trying to convince people only bad boys have monocles is kinda pathetic. More so that I worry it might work. When people with low self respect buy into this garbage.

Many of the people who have bought it are defiantly "fanbois". Especially DurrHurrDurr.

Trolling removed. Zymurgist

But...but..but...I wanna be one of the cool kids, too!

(@CCP: Hire a non-n00b graphics-artist next time--the monocles look like sculpted anus frozen in mid-poop-dilation, and don't follow the contours of the face, such that they're staring off to the side half the time. Champion! What, did you get a 14-year-old with a same-age laptop and a downloaded copy of Blender 2.3 to do that for you? Or did even he tell you to **** off after reading your company's reviews at GlassDoor?)

CCP always do what they want, and very very rarely listen to the fanbase... I personally find that they come across quite full of themselves and generally seem to think they always know better...

and they listen to the CSM at least at a superficial, make a show of it level, but lets be serious... the CSM in fact have no power and it shows form their previous meetings.

This is what I what i was talking about. The "peasant" concept they are trying to sell to the players.


When you are more a serf for CCP when you buy one in reality.

EDIT: monocles = sellout

Real players wont fall for it if you personally own an office fit nightmare or a Nyx or own several Pirate control towers or even a bunch of T2 bpo now that will impress people. A monocle though well it just show that your a trolling muppet if you own one of them.

There it is again. They must have their own channel where they come up with talking points.

The issue of MT is bigger then trolling.

All the monocle-haters are poor at spelling, and have confusing sentence structure. This clearly proves they truly are peasants as suggested, and should know their place in New Eden.

I was moseying about the trade-route to Jita in my Obelisk, with a cargo full of monocles, and dirty peasants were picking up rocks from the spacelane and throwing them at my carriage. The peasants are irritated that none of the monocles are for them.

Personally, I prefer to trade in monocle stock, but choose not to bask in it's glory by donning one on either of my vision orbs. I'm currently waiting on the 'Odin' Synthetics to hit the market.
