Personally I'm far more happy with the real life wearable Guristas t-shirt I bought a while back.... Cool


Get the hoodie too! It's great!


Im really considering it. I have too many over-the-head hoodies and not enough zip front ones. Plus, I dig the design. :D

I like how the OP thinks this the actual controversy is about having the money to buy the monocle or not.


lol

its people like this that ccp want, oblivious to the truth of the milking


They want people who refuse to pay ridiculously exorbitant real-money prices for virtual items that cost more than real, wearable clothing from their own store?

Or are you referring to the OP? I'm confused.


the OP




Oh, ok. Sorry. I'm a bit scatterbrained today. :)

I'll be using a combination of real life money for two P.L.E.X. and in game money (ISK) to buy the the rest to have enough Aurum. Options you see, it's all about the options.

Hatters are gonna hate of course, but no one is forcing you to buy any of it. Don't like it? Don't buy it. It is that simple. Your game is the same. If I decide that I want to buy a monocle or Quafe T-shirt because I'm not poor like you, then that is my business.

Other games are doing it and doing well. You old dinosaurs just want your little game to stay off the radar so you can feel like a big fish in a small pond. Time to evolve or find out the hard truth that people like me, are simply...

Personally I don't want one cause I don't think they look all that great. I also dont mind the vanity items for people who want them.

Do I work? Yes
Can I afford one? Yes
Am I going get one? No
Why? Because I have better things to spend my cash on and the price of these items at the moment is ludicrous IMO.
Thinking your better than people because you got a monocle in game?

If people want to pay for vanity items fair enough I would probably have got some aurum to get some stuff if the prices had been more reasonable for items.

To the OP:

You sir are (in the quaint dialect of my home town) a complete numpty.

You miss the point as do many, its not the vanity items and there beyond belief prices that annoy but the promise now broken that the ability to opt out of the CQ would be a permanent rather than as it is now a temporary feature. I didn't sub up to play space Barbie but to fly ships, anything that slows reshipping or resupply is bad and gives my opponents an advantage.

As to being poor, if I wanted monocles would be no problem but as I have no need for vanity items and my brain hasn't been removed and replaced with a cabbage I'll give them a miss. CCP just think if they FORCE us to use the CQ it will mean more MT and real $'s for them.

So in conclusion play with your digital dolly to your hearts content, I am happy for you and wish you joy in it and the toys you buy for it but don't expect me to be happy about being forced to use such a slow and irrelevant feature.

Considering the code for the P.L.E.X. will be paid for by my dad tomorrow for my birthday it is hardly coming from my personal wallet. So in the end, I'm only paying for it with a bit of ISK. But please, keep raging but do it elsewhere. This thread is about CCP creating several options to acquire stuff in the game.

When was the last time you went to a car dealership and they had just the one car model with only the ONE package on it? Didn't think so. They offer power windows or the hand crank ones depending on your budget. I can afford the power windows. Your a hand crank user. Deal with it or work harder at life.

Normally I'd agree with you but as he's posting in maroon I tend to think he's just compensating for a inferiority complex.

Bah! I'm so rich, and the billions mean so little to me, and the monocle so insignificant to me, that it's not even worth my time buying one except to throw it in the trash immediately.

If I actually put it on, I'd be admitting that I'm poor enough to require some kind of value from my spending. I don't. CCP simply won't let me destroy ISK outright, so I would only consider the worthless medium of monocles as a means to cash-burning.

So you are poor then because if you were not you'd just buy it with cash and not have to wait for someone else to then put it on the market for you so you can buy it with ISK.

Also daddy buying it for you....says everything. You should be in school.

What's the point of a monocle, this is a spaceship based game.

What do I care if I can buy pants.

Give me strippes so I can pimpout my ship.

LOL, you're doing an ok job of dredging up the anti-MT sentiments, but please use something other than red text, (sry maroon text, no misspelled puns intended I am sure.) It is hard to read against the grey. Use bright yellow, or green! Yeah, green with envy of your troll powers.

Wait, your saving up to buy the Monocle and your going to blow all your isk on it?

Wait... your going to spend all your isk on a purely cosmetic item?

Okay.

I can afford one if i REALLY wanted to get one to grow my e-peen but i do not feel the need to do so, i would rather buy spaceships in a spaceship game :)

Of course i doubt your post is serious, but i have seen weirder things happen Laughing

Hey kid, MAN UP ALREADY...no really, show me your monocle or it didnt happen. You're making a fool of yourself right now.

I will, i want...doesn't count. You have a ferrari in your garage, or you don't. Now go ask your parents if you can have the monocle.

I don't give a damn about monocles. I don't want $$$ meters in a game, it breaks immersion and takes value away from the game.

When I want to play for cash, I play poker or roulette.

So tell me, how hard do I need to work to make the Aurum meter and the cash shop go away?
