Yes, as chief recruitment officer for Pandemic Legion and all affiliates I made the call earlier today. Because our wallet is a bit heftier than most, we've taken extra measures --

We're using trade alts to passively monitor who's even just buying and selling the items in Jita. All such players and connected alts will also be permanently banned from joining.

So if someone buys a PLEX with isk in order to spen on their sub they are fine, but if they buy a PLEX to convert in aurum they should be kicked out of the corp?

Corps which require full high security apis from their members can also search assets for offending items.

So far I am in talks with a number of major alliances to get this initiative rolling.

Anyone who defiles gametime by converting into non-functional pixels should be banished imo.

I think big corps and Alliances should be forced to pay Aurum for Full high security api's . lol

wasting money and isk for this junk is a waste of resources, buying stuff with arum represents a large lack of understanding of whats in important in this game.

its imperative to survive and thrive, not waste valuable resources into simply looking different, as looking "good" or "better" than other players is not possible, as that's a matter of opinion, not money.

i think my glasses look better than any arum item in the store, but that's only a matter of opinion. the same goes for arum items, they don't guarantee you will look any better without them, so essentially, there's no point.

Arum items only guarantees you don't "get eve" and don't have a proper set of priorities. and therefore an arum buyer is not recruitment material.

again, +1

The concept is pretty simple. CCP prides itself on the strong and interesting communities EVE has created.

Want to fight back against the idiocy of cash shops, which are sapping developer time and focus from actual gameplay?

Ban recruitment of any player with current or past portraits which show that he/she has purchased real money items.

If only a few prominent CEOs sign onto this and get the word out, it could very well have a domino affect.


This is hilarious. You want vanity items so bad you’re doing this... You’re in one of the richest alliances in the game and embarrassing yourself.

Okay, so I'm a tiny fish here in a sea of big wigs... But I have to say I find this whole thread odd. Probably I won't buy any vanity items (I'd rather spend my ISK on my ship), but why so much hostility to do those that do?

CCP is a company, and they must make money to thrive. The more money they make the more people they can hire. If someone wants to donate more money to CCP why do you care? You all seem to think that them making this little extra money will hurt the game. I can assure you that with the time and energy they have already put into it, if they don't make any money off it, that surely will hurt the game.

And besides. 75% of the population of EVE is a fairly permanent resident of high security space. Do you think the average player will even know of this alliance ban?

What if someone new who just started, purchased an item... with ISK. Perhaps he didn't even know it was a vanity item. 2 years down the road he's a hardcore killer who has spent 99.9% of his ISK on PvP ships, your going to ban him from your alliance?

As I said... I probably won't buy them anyway, but I can't see joining any corp that is going to tell me what I can and cannot do with my money (ISK or real), and I would imagine quite a few people will feel the same way.

And the next brainwashed hamster. CCP thrived for 8 years, the game did grow on the modell. Its build around its economy and player interaction.

The reasons for all this bull**** is not that EVE doesnt give them revenue, its that they ****ed up on other fronts, now we pay the price for that.

And you wonder why ppl are angry?

I'm actually quite disgusted by the pricing structure in the new shop, in the current economical climate it shows CCP has lost touch with it's playerbase and just wants our teat's to milk dry.

Guess next month they will release a "hoody" worth 1 billion isk so i can look like I did before incarna.

Okay I hadn't actually visited the vanity store yet (even though i don't object, I didn't have any special draw for me). I still haven't checked it out, but from what I'm hearing of the prices... I will say, I'm a bit alarmed.

When I made my initial comments, I didn't realize the prices. While I still don't technically object to the idea... I probably would think twice about recruiting someone who paid 1 Billion ISK on an eyepiece. Why you wouldn't use that much ISK on a faction battleship, or 3 months subscription is a bit beyond me. I thought people would be spending maybe 100k max or so on vanity items, maybe even in a few million. I figured one mission could cover any and all items I might want. The rumors I'm hearing though seem that this is not the case.

If your constantly at war, you do not want your members spending billions on items they can't fight with.

I don't see the point in this. If someone wants to buy monocle for 12000 aur, I don't really care. That's his/her problem, not mine. Why should I ban someone from corp only because of that, even if (s)he is maybe good at pvp or some other things??

If someone will spend 10 plexes for cool clothes and items, I don't f... care.

I thought the same. I would pay 2M for shoes but not 250M!
Fot that price I can rather buy a cool faction ship. :D
