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.


Agreed, i think its highty suspect that these people are posting how cool it is to have a monocle, there either complete idiots or dont mind being milked as a cash cow by CCP!


Ahhh, another Green Eyed Monster. Jealousy will kill you slowly.


LOL@Jealousy, seriously???? LOL!!!! i was always told that a fool and there money are soon parted, and this thread confirms that, why would i want to look like someone has poked my eye out and then pay them 60$ REAL MONEY for the privilege? another brainless idiot stupid enough to fall in to CCP's "GREED IS GOOD" trap LOL!

I have $500 ostrich leather hat(s) in RL which I barely use few days in a year - and honestly I'd buy a monocle - if it wasn't that fugly. And there is no force in the Universe which can persuade me those guys who already purchased it - they have a taste or substantial amount of money ($70/1.5b isn't substantial from any point of view). By bragging about their bad taste on forums they only can persuade me they need attention badly - and for cheap.

So whatever - let them brag about their bad taste as much as they want. I'll wait for more expensive and less ugly version (most likely offline - subscription expires soon while I don't see any signs of CCP trying to improve situation with lack of content updates for "subscribers 1.0").

I doubt any of the monocle owners in this thread have purchased their monocles using RL cash.

You're quite simply jealous and poor.

In a way there is a certain dark genius at work in charging forum trolls $60 dollars.

If only it was just monocles and the peac_ocks could be the only milk-cows that CCP had its eye on eh?



I suspect it was a dark genius turning something some trivial into such a matter of fun to those who can afford it.
For that alone I really praise the genious behind the mask.

PS: bypassing forum regulations on filtering words to make a point is trolling too lover, just a bitter one. But remember that.


Come on the word peac_ock...

... is a recognized industry term for mmo players prepared to pay a disproportionate sum to feed their vanity and laud it over other players. Its not really my fault I can't refer to it because of the filter. I could say "pretty male birds whose feathers often get put in people's hats" but its a bit confusing no?

Nonsense, for two reasons.

1) I pay a subscription to play the game. As I play the game I make millions upon billions of ISK. If I choose not to buy a PLEX to pay for my gametime, it is a twist of logic to equate that with buying PLEX with $$ to get more ISK. I'm playing the game, in a subscribed mode, as it was designed and played even before PLEX came out. By no stretch of the imagination does that equate me to buying ISK with $$.

2) Many of us have enough ISK to both keep subscribed with PLEX and buy fancy outfits.


Nice mental gymnastics you need to twist it into somehow plex being free.

At some point ccp got money for that plex. Its value is = to that money. Just cause you paid in isk does not magic away that IRL money value.

For every plex you don't Redeem for game time you lost money.


So get mad at those that by PLEX with $$ to sell it for ISK, as they have been for years? Why more mad now than before? Go be mad at them.

Even by your own logic, that only works if I ever pay for my subscription with $$. If I pay for it with PLEX bought with ISK and pay for NeX with PLEX bought with ISK, at no point do I lose real money.

But how do you play? You must be paying for your subscription with $$ or else you wouldn't be so against PLEX. Therefore, you are also losing money. You paid money to receive the ISK you made by playing the game. By your own logic, then, you are as guilty as I.

You see, it's not me playing the fancy mental gymnastics, it is you. My point is that your anger is misdirected at those with the monocles, who did not put forth $$ for their monocles. Since everyone that is so against NeX because they're against buying in-game stuff with $$, they must be against PLEX in its entirety, and so they must be paying for their game time with $$. Therefore, you're hypocritical if you are against others paying for their game time with $$.

So, when I say I didn't pay $$ for NeX, I mean that I personally paid no more $$ than for subscription cost (going with the premise that I actually don't pay for my gametime with PLEX, as well). Someone paid the $$, true, and they got my ISK in return. Go hate on them. They're the ones paying $$, not I.

Nice, fancy, hypocritical mental gymnastics you perform there.

Or to put it a bit more in perspective, you aren't paying virtual money to put a virtual monocle on your virtual character to poke fun at other players in an internet spaceship game.

Either choice is a valid one, as long as which ever choice you make ends up in your having fun.

Fun is fun obviously and it is quite fun taking the mickey out of people spending virtual cash to put virtual monocles on their virtual characters virtual faces also. This much I have to admit Very Happy

Though I do think you guys should seriosuly consider promoting my tiered monocles suggestion from earlier - trolling lower ranked monocle owners would be pretty good fun also!

I think the fun is more relative to the fact of people thinking that spending a little bit of virtual cash is reason enough to shave their avatar's heads and believe their are protesters against a fantastic conspiracy of ccp illuminatis! This is really priceless I tell you. Twisted Evil

I love the monocle guys I really do, thank you so much for funding the other projects for CCP and now hopefully they wont put non-vanity items in the NEX store. So please from me buy lots more monocles.

Personally btw I think the monocle should be reworked, it doesn't sit correctly and probably should be a little wider to fit the eye socket correctly. But don't let that stop you from buying more.

At the end of the day why care if someone purchased a monocle when it doesn't affect gameplay at all. If they had some sort of in-game advantage then that's a whole different story.

Undoubtedly. Smile

I'll admit, when I first saw the pricing structure in the NeX store I got a bit tweaked.

Then I read the responses to my posts from some of the more economy literate members of the community that pointed out that releasing some of the pricier items in their first release was quite probably a good idea, with the aim of keeping PLEX prices from jumping too sharply at first.

Right after that I saw the Dev response that indicated that more reasonably priced items would be following shortly (along with some even pricier ones), so that dove tailed pretty nicely. So perhaps they were correct.

It will be interesting to see what economy developes around these items.

Since Minmatar are the only ones to have Captains Quarters, yeah I have a one. You on the other hand are Gallente which means you don't.

Now try another troll lie.

By the way, don't infer your sexual persuasion onto me just because you're jealous of some players who bought a Monocle.

Now if you need something 'to get in ya' and take the edge off, petition CCP to add a more personal feminine type of device for sale in the NeX. When you finally do get your own Captains Quarters, you can use it in private on 'what ya momma gave ya'.
