Why should clothing be destructible? You are naked in your pod anyway.
You only dress up for photo shooting (portrait) or walking around in your cabin.
The one high tech thing you get provided in every damn station in the whole universe.

^This.

And the Nex prices are fine. If they were 1/100th the cost like the OP wants, then everyone could have the extra clothing and then there would be no point at all to the Nex store.

The whole point of high prices is to add an 'exclusive' factor to the clothing. Otherwise they would have just added in the Nex clothes with the current free clothes.

This is the longest running MMO game to ever exist, and to keep it going CCP is doing what they gotta do to keep making the green. Can't blame em.

Please raise prices in the Nex store CCP, the items aren't nearly exclusive enough.

As a shareholder in your development process my opinion counts. I pay my monthly subscription not to play the game as delivered but to try to change and develop it into something that I would prefer.

Also could you please explain why the Nex items aren't destructible? I mean I can die and instantly be cloned at any station in the universe still wearing my jacket, shirt, pants, shoes, sunglasses, jewellery, tattoos, makeup, and even have access to a free hairstylist. Nex items are totally breaking this deep immersion.

Surely the reason can't be something as simple as making everyone customise their character and snap a new portrait every time they die because their clothing has changed? I can't see that being a hassle at all.

Thanks for reading everything, I'm wondering how many of these are actually alts at this point.

Everyone knows they'd be making more money and more turn over lowering the prices and making the items destructible.


Their pricing scheme is faulty.


They'd attract more customers and more NEW customers using lower prices and more affordable commodities. It's the same exact reason that technology gets CHEAPER, because the cheaper they can make it means the more people that can buy it which means that the more people that will spend money on it, which means more money coming in to your pocket.


If making goods cheaper wasn't in the economies best interest then things would get more expensive as time goes on, not selling better products for cheaper prices.


This goes back to the Monopoly idea. CCP has no incentive to either make their product cheaper or better in the NEX store because they have no competition there.


They're just running around playing "Fashion Tycoon".

They screwed up big time with the pricing levels.
But it should have been destructible.


I agree. I would have paid up to 2 billion for the monocle.

So, new clothes released....


Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.


The top two on the right are the same clothes with different colors launched on day one.


The skirts... I saw on Singularity, so those are still the same assets, nothing really new on the development front.

The boots, who cares.

The shirt on the bottom left I think is the same mens shirt already out there.


Either way, I refuse to click on the NeX to tick up some statistic to even check the prices, anyone feel free to put up some info?


Again, it's sad to see such a promising feature get wasted on with poor decision making and blindly driving forward excluding the majority of the player base on items with prices that are intentionally designed to do so.


The problem here is their metric for "Success" for this feature is clearly suffering from tunnel vision and Confirmation Bias. Someone is afraid to say they made a mistake.

Going to link to player threads I think have a valuable perspective.

Here's a few good ones that just came up::

...

Though the picture doesn't show everything that was released and also shows already released items, you're right on all accounts. We mainly got other coloured versions or variants (left eye monocle) of the same except for the boots.

Speaking of which I'm having an issue with the male boots, as they are too small for the standard trousers - they look awkward tucked in, and the only male trousers again won't fit nicely into any top wear...

The things I like right fine are all the shirts and jackets as well as female skirts in conjunction with female boots (didn't buy any female trousers yet).

who gives a ****, if people want to spend money on AUR, let them, all that's going to happen is the backlog of PLEXes is going to run out and when that happens alot of people will drop because this game would need a year of work to be worth paying IRL money for, then the sandbox will fall apart as more people quit, the game will rightfully die because of CCP's idiotic policy of putting their resources into adding more broken content and we can all just move on

AN interesting review on the player population.


What I think has not been really pointed out though from EVE-Offline is that the HIGH peak is still there, but the daily average is dropping during US Prime time, meaning most of the US Players have decided that they're not interested in playing EVE Online as much.


I've written him a comment to see.



I still don't understand how people can keep saying "let them do what they want". Yes, they can, but CUSTOMER INPUT is very important for any company. They should be happy that any of us care to point it out to them. IF everyone who has a problem with EVE either stopped giving them money or stopped playing the game, or simply acquiesced to whatever stupid ideas have come along the way, just because, then EVE wouldn't even exist today. It'd be a footnote on the bottom of a page of MMO's that failed.


This doesn't work because people either SHUT UP or because people either just leave. It works because the community and CCP has traditionally and always tried to work together and make things work together.

So how does the 13 PLEX for $200 fit into everyones thinking that they want to get PLEX out of the system through AURUM?


That seems a bit contradictory. It also seems that people saying they expect most people to use PLEX bought WITH ISK to buy their NEX Store goods seems unlikely...

13 PLEX for $200 Article


13 PLEX for $199.00

2 Plex is usually $35.00 or so...

6.5 * $35 = $227.50


Buy 20 get 0.85 of PLEX free?



Desperate for money? Trying to lower PLEX prices to shift NEX store ISK cost perception? What say you?
