Besides the question of how much development time CCP is going to waste on the MT store, how many features that were originally intended to be freely available will now require MT purchases? For example, one of the features that was discussed for WiS/Incarna/whatever was player-run clothing shops. But that can't coexist with a MT clothing store.

If the desirable clothing items are in the MT store, at best, the player-run clothing producers/sellers/etc will have to settle for selling to the few people who can't afford MT items but actually care about clothing in general.

If the desirable clothing items are in the player stores, why would anyone pay real cash for less-appealing options in the MT store?

We can't have it both ways, so which one is it going to be? And, more importantly, how many other features are going to suffer the same fate?

I think I speak for CCP when I say: Shut up and pay.

I wouldn't be surprised if Aurum was required to play the mini games inside the bars (if that actually happens).

You cant count things that were only discussed as "features" of a game. It sounds like you just want to ***** about something like so many others. CCP already stated that the NEX store and MT will be only for vanity items so who gives a crap, you can even buy these things with ISK. If you cant handle that then stop *****ing and move on to a new game. God forbid a company tries to increase their revenue. What they have done only adds to the game. If you dont want to particapte in the aspect of it guess what you dont have to.

You can still play eve exactly the same way you did prior to Incarna (except no ship spinning) and the only other side affact is PLEX "may" go up in price, which is good for poeple selling PLEX but bad for those who play this GAME for FREE, becuase they will have to play more for free in order to play for free. So much QQ for something that is only voluntary inside of this GAME.

The point is that, at one point, clothing upgrades were going to be a vanity item produced and sold by players. You know, one of those things that was supposed to make Incarna actually matter instead of being a pointless captain's closet? Except now that's gone, and who knows how many other aspects of Incarna will also be replaced by the MT store.

No, it takes away from the game because a player-run feature has been replaced by the MT store. This is a net loss for the players.
