Had they given the monocle to only 7 year vets i would respect CCP allot more than I currently do =)


Frankly the next time You make something really cool think about the 7 year vets rather than your dirty little mitten grubbing pockets CCP. if you did stuff for your vets you might have allot better player retention

But like most failures you go for the quick win not the long term win.

Thats stupid and arbitrary both if CCP did it and even more so if you respected them for it.

Besides pretty much all the 7 year vets could afford the stupid thing nd dont really want it.

Making it 7 year vets would let in a lot of riff-raff. People from 2004 are still pretty new.

I'd say '03s only. YARRRR!!

Edit: Also, I don't think they are super concerned about retention for anyone who has been here more than 5 years. All of us are mostly pretty much hooked. Also, rich enough to play using only isk without noticing, for the most part.

If my spaceship had eyes I would have absolutely no desire whatsoever to replace one of them with a mechanical anus.

I dunno. Pretty sure the three years after launch counts as beta too. I actually crashed more *after* launch.

How about 03's with unbroken subscription since then? Not many of us about, I'll bet.

I will pay aura*? What ever it is called to not get the message when i am jumping clones warning me, my possible barbi dress up doll might not have the same cloths when I jump.

That was the biggest face palm I have had in any game.

Okay, so you're wearing a pair of sweat pants and a t-shirt right now. You jump to your clone in Amsterdam and you're suddenly wearing nothing more than a pair of tighty whities. Makes sense, if you understand what a clone is.

No, no, no.. vet rewards are just as bad as a cash shop guys..

Eve needs to be what it always has, a free market run by the players selling crap made by the players.

Star Wars galaxies NGE tried that vet reward stuff, it was all they could do to keep people subscribing.. hand out rewards once a year. Rolling Eyes

Why would you reward people who can't stop bittervetting and crying? Or people who bought the 2004 character off a crying bittervet?

Why not, I don't reduce the damned price of the friggin thing? And all the damned cloths by say 90%? Seriously.

Also, a hat would be nice for vets.
