This will be a simple vote, a companion to the other crowd source here as to player endorsement of microtransactions. Simply saying NO to CCP is not enough, and will likely lead to them doing it anyways, unless we can demonstrate that there is popular support behind an alternative solution to the revenue question.

Vote YES as the first word in your reply if you would be willing to pay an increased subscription fee, if it meant preventing microtransactions from obtaining a foothold in Eve Online.

Vote NO if you would never pay an increased subscription fee for Eve Online under any circumstance.

Vote MICRO if you would prefer to see micro transactions for vanity items only (Clothing, ship skins, etc).

Vote ALLOW if you would be satisfied with the implementation of micro transactions for vanity items as well as other items or services with gameplay value (Extra fitting saves, actual ship purchases, skillpoints for AUR, standings for AUR).

I will tally results and post here, in roughly another 24 hours once people have had time to edit their results. Feel free to suggest what you would be willing to pay in this thread, which is for discussing this proposal.

Only if they keep the mt-stuff vanity only.

...provided it didn't cost as much as that monocle.

MICRO - if someone wants to pay for a pair of pants, who am I to tell them no. I don't care what kind of pretty new shiny they add that can be obtained by micro transactions as long as it has no in-game impact (purely cosmetic). Eve already forces us to use multiple accounts in a way that no other MMO requires. If we didn't have to have a separate account for cynos, supers, and normal ships, I wouldn't have a problem with paying a bit more for my subscription. But, right now, just to use the stuff I have in game requires over $40 a month. That's already a rather high monthly subscription. If they touch the subscription price, I'd better see an enormous improvement in game play to go with it.

The higher the monthly cost gets for tools required to be in null, the stronger the incentive to use bots in null becomes.

as bad as the current prices are, you do not have to buy them, and are given 0 ZERO advantage to having them.
yes they should be cheaper
yes its absurd that a monocle in game is $80
but face it if person A wants to try and be cool, let him its like buying a tournament ship isnt it? Epeen.

as long as the MT are kept to incarna WIS and WIS is completely optional, its fine the way it is
no i would not pay more the $15 to play eve, its hardly worth that much

(That's 1 yes for each of my accounts)

Thanks for making this poll to try to give CCP some real factual numbers on community feedback

No. If CCP wants to hang micro transactions over our heads as a way to charge us more subscription fees, Im not playing ball. Ill speak with my wallet and give their competitor money.

No, but mostly because it's would stop new player from trying the game. When you know the game, paying more his not a big deal, but most people will not try a game who overcharge.

I'm fully open to paying more if needed, but I would prefer to have to not. I mean if people want to look pretty that can, but I don't want to. But if worse comes to worse, yea I would pay more to play.

No to paying more.
No to RMT.

MicroTransactions if its purely cosmetic.
If it changes the game in any way, shape or form to give someone else the advantage over someone else, Scrap it.

I don't want vanity items, and the day I have to pay more for garbage I don't want. I will gladly find something else to do.

If we want to count accounts (see above for another of my accounts).

You can already pay cash and get all the items in this game. You can even buy a character with maxed out skills. I don't see why everyone is so illogical about this mt issue.

I pay enough as it is. If CCP wants more money then they shall cut down on their alcohol consumption. From what I always hear about Fanfest does there seem to be a lot of alcohol involved, which is supposedly very expensive in Iceland.

So, how about saving some money instead of trying to get more in through vanity items? Saving money is the reasonable way to go. Those 600 employees cannot release a single patch where they do not mess up some ship's bonuses in some way. With each patch do we get extended downtimes, that add up more and more. The quality is getting worse and the bill is supposed to go up?

No. No. No.

Be reasonable. They need to sort it out. Not us.

....if the "need" is explained coherently.
