If I pay a monthly fee, this should pay for all that can be had in the game. If microtransactions are introduced, it will easily just become a game where those who can/want to use more RL money get an edge.

"Cosmetic" is just the start, I'm afraid.

YES, as long as they include the option for me to make a custom "One of a Kind" paint job for all the CyberDyne R-D Titans and Super Carriers sold!

Cosmetics only.

Faster skill training through modified attributes is not cosmetics or vanity item and it will give the clear benefit over other players.

Strictly speaking there is nothing wrong with microtransactions if they stay restricted to little, unimportant features.

But as Eve is a business after all and thus subject to economical fluctuations I am absolutely sure, that once microtransactions have been introduced they will be used to earn CCP more cash whenever they think they might need some. CCP will without a doubt introduce more and more microtransactions and once this business model has settled itself into the mind of the community people will be asking for something serious, that gives them more for their cash. and And that will drive people off quicker than anything else Eve is suffering from.

Ultimately this will turn the game into a milking station, no matter how serious CCP are now about their intentions. It's a path best not to start walking in the first place.

I would say "Cosmetically Only" were I not concerned that such a route is itself a slippery slope towards full implementation of being able to purchase advantages.


Should the game go that route, I will quit. I am a player with an income probably not unlike may EvE players (most EvE players I know either are gainfully employed or are students heading in that direction.

(There there is Kinsy; J/K: <3 Kinsy).

Accordingly while I could purchase advantages I prefer to play in a world that does not allow that.

Most games that implement micro-transactions do so as a substitute for the subscription model. The model is preferred in Asia where it has been more accepted.

Often in China, the micro-transaction model is implemented because the majority of the player base cannot afford $15.00/month so the game distributes the cost among different players.

These games are typically free to play and allow you to either grind or purchase advantages. If you have ever played a Chinese MMO, you likely know what I am talking about.

To me this appears to be a way for CCP to force its player base to spend more to remain competitive eve players in what is an extremely competitive game-play environment.

Want T2? Gonna cost you. Want a 5% bonus to all your characters e-war skills? Heak yah. But it will cost you $.

Sure you don't have to purchase a general 5% bonus to web scramble ranges. Just remember that next time that interceptor has you scrammed but you cannot scram it.

No biggie right? Wrong. This is where the game will go and there are plenty of games around and I for one will eventually leave this game should we find ourselves in anything that doles out more advantages based on $.

We already have some. Want a faction web? Buy a GTC with cash and sell it for isk. (They still sell GTC's right?? Don't honestly know).

I was an avid DAOC player (Fantasy/PVP) and one of the factors that led to me dropping my three accounts was that I got tired of having to purchase each new expansion in order to have the most competitive armor/weapons/abilities. I was already paying 3x subscriptions. Money is not the issue really so much as some point you feel you are being bilked to an extent that the game ceases to hold integrity.

CCP go look at DAOC numbers now. (I admit the largest factor of course in DAOC collapsing was Mythic's failure to address hacking, cheats etc. - save that for a different discussion - but still don't repeat any of their missteps).

Wall of text - sorry - just had my second cup of coffee.

More money for EVE means more innovation, better hardware (less lag!).

You really think that? My poor, naive, innocent boy, I have a footbridge in Delhi to sell you... Laughing
