I propose four things:

a) Allow GMs to delete character's AUR balances if we petition asking for that. Or better yet allow players to do this themselves. Saying we can buy NEX store items and then delete said items is not good enough - we do not want to give CCP metrics supporting MT in Eve.

b) Make future free AUR be a time limited redeemable gift like other free gifts have been. I find the current situation insulting, as I do not support MT in a subscription sandbox MMO with a player run economy, and thus do not want a positive - or better yet any AUR balance showing in my wallet.

c) Allow users to disable AUR balance display in the wallet.

d) Move the ISK balance back to the left so the stupid pointless AUR balance doesn't take up another wasted blank line at the top of the wallet. Even if you give us (c) I'd still like the ISK balance back where it belongs. CCP - we westerners read left to right. It is natural to look first top left for info.

Update: a GM just deleted my free AUR :-) So it can be done, and I encourage everyone against MT in Eve to petition for AUR deletion as well! Yay!

Hey us Asians read right to left, so let's not be too racially biased here. (and EVE is coming to Japan this year!)

Counter suggestion. If they are going to offer a gift, make it something that isn't merely a cheap attempt to coerce the playerbase into using a crap feature.

CCP should give everyone a few AUR. Then most of us players will be able to sell that AUR for ISK, while people who have too much ISK would be able to buy discount AUR for a while.

You've a point, but typically I expect these kind of issues to be sorted by the devs localising the UI, not trying to make one size fits all users. At the very least it makes sense to me to go with the preference of the majority of users.

Still, which side the ISK balance is on matters less to me than reclaiming another wasted blank line at the top of the wallet. CCP - please put the ISK and AUR balances side by side, if nothing else.

It is actually quite nice for those who use the feature, it helps getting rid of leftover AUR that doesnt buy anything unless you break another PLEX.

Also nice for those of us who pay our sub with ISK.


Even though nothing of the above applies to me, I still consider it a better idea than another useless gift ship.
