Just sayin' that I ain't buying a goddamned thing from your little store, CCP. That is all.

The only possible explanation for the price could be to create in game social class distinction, in which case vets can afford this. BUT if this is true, please let us lower class buy shabby pirate hats at least.

Disgusted.

CCP should heed peoples righteous outcry.

The pricing of aurum items displays quite frankly contempt for your player base. U Obviuosly sat down and thought what is the maximum we can get out off our players, if not, was $1000 fielded for 1/2 pair of glasses?, will the fish tank cost the same as a small bungalow in Iceland?

Pixelated, cloneable, clothing should not cost more than its real life equivalent, period. Quite frankly I'm disgusted by this play, i can oly hope it was a accountant that suggested these prices, cause it certaily was not a gamer.

who is this "Scott Holden" and why does CCP hate him?


edit: apparently he is CCP's "Lead Content Creator" aka CCP Molock; funny that it's an ex-White Wolf employee who (with great foresight) has to call bull**** on CCP's NeX pricing.

Anything over 1$ is not a micro transaction!

******ed. So when this shop has 100's of items (or will it be 6 items forever) you'll be spending 1000's of dollars if you want to buy everything. lol.

Not just a faction BS. But multiple battle ships! Rolling Eyes

They must've had their discription backwords: it would be silly to buy sunglasses for my avatar and pay LESS that I would for a faction battleship

Here's what I will ASSUME happened (Cause I can not believe CCP was THAT stupid...)
There was a big meeting... all the CCP-Marketeer types, and an intern
The topic of the meeting: Determine prices for Vanity Items.
Went something like this...
Lots of discussion, then, finally:
Monacle - 65
Mens shirt - 15
Woman's shirt - 17
etc...
etc...

The Intern carefully wrote it all down:
Monacle - $65
Mens shirt - $15
Woman's shirt - $17
etc...
etc...

Then he went to his cubicle, converted $ to Aurum, rounding up as needed, and published the numbers to the Devs...
Devs thought CCP Marketeers were smoking GOOD crack, but entered the numbers
QA thought CCP Marketeers were smoking that dang pickled shark again, but the numbers matched the specs so...
and on the ball rolled... right out to us
We saw, and quite properly Sh*t our collective pants

See, it's all a mistaken conversion... Like mistaking Centimeters for Inches.... no big deal (Unless you're sending a rover to Mars)
Soon as the CCP wakes up from the after-launch party, they'll fix this.... yeah
PLEASE GOD, FIX THIS!

Usually I'm all thumbs up to CCP, but with this... it's laughable. I dare say somewhere in the 37 pages of replies so far someone has said it more eloquently than I can.

But guys, what the hell were you smoking?

CCP obviously does not understand the concept of MICROtransactions

It's basically understood as anything $5 and less (sometime a little more but not by much).

That's how cash shop games make money because they are "free" such as league of legends, but eve is already sub based so why should we pay out of our noses?

I dont usualy post on these forums and i dont think iw ever called CCP out for a bad error or bug, BUT now i will, in my eyes this patch or expansion is your worst.

Every member of my corp has stations tuurned off, and the NeX obvious monny grab has staind the company badly, as an Icelander i am no longer proud of CCP

I suppose if you are poor and cannot buy PLEX with isk you might think that this stuff costs RL money.

The monocle is about 1.5 bill isk if you buy PLEX with isk.

Just because you CAN buy PLEX with $$ doesn't mean you HAVE too...

The Store is completely asinine, the CQ is cumbersome as hell (I mean really, having to deal with the CQ just to dock up and offload some items, or pick something up?). I agree: CQ should be an OPTION to go to after you dock up.
And now there's all this bad press and CCP/EvE is being made a total mockery of, and there is NO comms from CCP yet. I've never seen it this bad before in my six years of playing this game. Respect is very hard to earn back once lost, fellas. WTF are you waiting for? Let's hear SOMEthing.

if evrey was cheap as hell, everyone would buy them, it's not bloody rocket science, they are vanity items, only the vain will absolutely want them no matter the cost.

Normally i'd call that nuke joke over-doing-it, but in this case you're actually right. Neutral
