Looks like we'll be getting a huge influx of Japanese players later this year when the game is released in Japan. Unlike the China release, they're also going to be connecting to TQ. So hopefully we'll see a huge Japanese power bloc emerge and there will be some interesting political times ahead in 0.0 Smile

This quote from Brendan (Nyphur) is too good not to put here... "While the language barrier between players from different parts of the world can limit social interaction, it turns out that everyone understands the language of smashing internet spaceships to bits with lasers."

This is going in my bio.

EDIT: I actually thing this is very exciting, something to mix up the political landscape. It could be very good for EVE.

LOL.....surprises me that I haven't seen any rage about this yet....CCP partnering with nexon? Nexon is THE paramount f2p/p2w company out there....I play a few of their games and each one, they really make it so you have to pay to have an even footing with other gamers.

So erm.. what does Nexon get out of this?

Quote:
NX is virtual currency used throughout all games serviced by Nexon America Inc. NX can be used to buy in-game items and to add new features. It's a great way to enhance your gaming experience.


Edit. Or does Nexon Japan work differently?

This seems like a much better way to increase revenue and improve the game than selling pixel shirts that cost more than real ones.

Japanese players will be coming to TQ? OK cool! But I have a question. Can TQ handle the number of new players that they might expect...oh say 50k+?

I have to totally agree with Malcanis on this. Why doesn't CCP just increase its markets not only into Japan, but how about India as well.

BTW Mal, love your "Malcanis Law" in your sig. LOL! So true. Laughing

There is other thread already discussed about NEXON things. There I've written some of my anxiety. But, CCP comes to this thread, so I'd like to repeat that again;

1) Are existing Japanese player, like me, forced to be change subs, from NEXON?

2) In Japanese online game news site, they says NEXON will have MT, along with monthly subs. Will that MT have non-vanity P2W type item?

I'd like to hear these, because, NEXON is too famous as account insecurity, which I don't want to give my personal information. Also their other titles are heaven of RMT and BOT players, what could endanger current EVE play. This is actually very big surprise, after merely week before, you talked in CSM, no P2W item, and contacted so famouse P2W MMO provider.

From what I've heard, the Japanese actually don't like cruel, harsh worlds like EVE Online. On the other hand, their group-oriented culture could help them to form strong corporations with tight social bonds which make them more resilient to failscades.

On yet another hand, their corporations they form might be more dependant upon trust which would make them more susceptible to spies and thieves.

It will be interesting to see if this has any effect on EVE, and if so - what that effect will be.

Knowing what kind of company Nexon is, I really hope CCP refrain from doing further business deals with Nexon. Localizing is ok, but anything further is a no no.

Nexon is well known for its extensive use of 'cash' system to force players to pay extra for 'special' items. These include avatar clothes that affect character stats, special items that have limited dates of use and yet powerful enough to affect game play, etc etc.

I hope this partnership with Nexon isn't so CCP can learn from that company on how to make people pay more for game play aka p2w.

Well, I played vindictus, and I don't remember anything in their cash shop that was required to be competitive. It was all 10-dollar 30-day underwear. But then again there was no PvP in that game.

But yeah, Nexon is very much a microtransaction company.

I highly doubt that CCP would give the Japanese players access to different MTs than the rest of their players, especially if they are going to all be playing in the same universe. If they did, the resulting rebellion would be 10 times as bad as it was before.

If I would guess, I would say that CCP's relation to NEXON will be the same as their relation to Valve/Steam.

Japanese players can go to NEXON to purchase EVE Online, and they will receive a client which is preconfigured to their localization. In return, NEXON will either get a portion of the subscriptions for players who sign up through them or a portion of the initial game purchase for those who purchase the game through them.

I highly doubt that NEXON will be responsible for any EVE Online account handling.
