I know that in polite conversation you can't admit straight up that this is an attempt to lure players into interest in the Nex store, and I'm not going to ask you to.

But...

Has it ever occurred to anyone in the massive marketing brain trust that spending money to buy a skirt for your sexy alt is a complete waste of time because NO ONE ELSE BUT YOU CAN SEE HER WALKING AROUND IN IT?

Why are you guys pushing fashion on us when we don't even have a forum in which to walk around and be complimented?

Would I buy a pair of one thousand dollar Japanese jeans just to wear in my closet? Would Zulu? I mean, I suppose that if you wear thousand dollar jeans you probably do spend a good deal of time DEEP in the closet, but my point here isn't about that.

I have little interest in vanity stuff... But I can guarantee you that until I can wear it in public, I have NO interest in vanity stuff at ANY price.

Get your priorities straight... Its not important to look good if no one is looking.



jeez

I'm pretty sure when they add station environments you will be able to interact with other capsuleers...

YUP... And when they do, maybe a few more people will spend a buck on the Nex...

But promoting it now is a joke.

One number in a huge interface of the whole game will change from being constantly 0 to being constantly 1,000. I wouldn't call that "pushing fashion on us". Learn to ignore it like other things in this game that you don't use. Cool

Sweet. I'll pencil it in next to "the second coming" and "development of the warp drive complete". If I rub out "duke nukem forever released", there should be just enough space.

probably but then again you wont have station walking for a good :18 months: at the end of which they will release another gimped expansion and claim they didn't have time to fix stuff like they promised cause they were busy making the new expansion.

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!]

TTFN

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! Razz

They prioritized the NEX and making money along with conditioning players to become comsumers in EVE over having a practical medium to make those things have meaning or appear to do so. That and they'd then face a situation where they have Ambulation/Walking In Stations/Incarna (you know with other actual avatars) but have a NEX item shortage to sell us.

They'd rather have us conditioned to buy stuff now and have the 'experience' to do so already when they open up the 'catwalk' to show off as they add more stuff to sell.

It also goes along with the idea of why they push out 1 CQ instead of the real 'incarna' to condition us to using/dealing with it (removing the old hangar) when it adds practically nothing to the game(increased system requirements/load). Well that and the issue of not having it all done with releasing stuff in bits to show they don't push stuff out too early but it is still obvious they are doing that.

Instead of pushing out a whole expansion that isn't done they push out the parts they can say are 'finished' when they might only be 90% or so but look 'finished' performance and bugs notwithstanding this is CQ which includes the NEX. It 'works' in that they still release their 2 expansions a year and have more time to work on them and don't shove as much or many bugs/issues on us, we still have to deal with most of them but mainly not all at the same time that is how the staggered release really helps us.
