Sure it is... it is also a seeding of NeX items into the Market so that there will be ISK sales of Aur Items.
Just as a ETC is purchased with $ then converted to PLEX (s) then they are added to the market with a sell order... so two are (free) Aur to Virtual Good to sell order to ISK... seeding the market with NeX items - all part of the marking of NeX Items.
Would it make anyone feel "special" to WIS in a real money non-real set of pixels? What does it say about someone that feels that "vanity" is something in a game at all? someone who would care about what others "think" about them in real life is sad enough, but VIRTUAL STATUS ANXIETY?! - that is new one for the books.
Do you have feelings of VSA? need to prove to yourself your not as worthless as you feel inside? Do you want to be seen as "cool" and "In" and have a need of personal validation of worth from complete strangers? - you are insecure... and we have just what you need NeX... where you can buy: respect, love, admiration, worth, and all the things that you desire!... Really? it can do all that? [-ref. "the Door!" giggle.. no...lol.
I wouldn't say don't spend your money on things, it's Your money, you spend it like your time, how you want to... but if the expectation is you want the above, only the shallow or the stupid will be in awe... the rest I think will simply say, how sad.
But, CCP does need income and I like EVE, and if we must have MTs for busines to operate... then PLEASE FUND MY GAME! I am cheap, I am not into vanity or VR or RPG or whatever this sources from... but by all means if it give EVE funds to make my spaceship game better or just here, then have at it...
Thanks in advance for my free game [PLEX and ingame currency for the win!]
P.S. I would buy a 1000km Cod Piece [shapped like an avatar] IF it was offered though, and provided I could wear it in station and in pod!
