So far based on the count of cancelled accounts, thats nearly $500,000 in lost subscription revenue per year.

CCP is a big company, but not big enough that losing $500,000 from an already struggling yearly profit margin isn't going to hurt badly.

R.I.P Eve-Online, It was fun.

If more of the Russian community posted here we might get more of an idea what the reaction is there. We already have the troll ****wits trying to cash out (hi PL/Hydra) but more feedback would be good.

I might be in a Russian alliance but I'm actually from Florida Mad

Then go ask someone who does? It was never intended to be an insult matey, most of my friends in-game are from ex CCCP states.

Feedback dude, go get some otherwise why post? Wink

I can tell you in short that the Russian reaction is very largely negative, haha.

Does nobody else see the irony in people who pay $ for extra accounts quitting over the possibility of being able to pay $ for in-game advantages. If you use alts to mine/build/research/haul/scout/etc., you are paying cash to get ahead and cutting out all those middle-men. How is that any different from doing the same with aurum? Aren't both equally ****ting in the sandbox? Please explain.

Each of those alt accounts requires ships, goods and services, stuff, from the sandbox to do things. Each of them creates wealth in the sandbox by doing things. Each is another in-game character creating demand, adding to the supply, demands that drive conflict, value and cooperation.

Personally I have always railed against some of the almost built-in need for alts, I had one, and it was unsubbed years ago. I also do not like the fact that it allows some people to create vertical business models within the sandbox. But someone paying for an alt is far far different than someone plopping down some $Cash and getting something extra added to the sandbox.

An alt requires effort, magic space ships and golden bullets do not.

For the "You ain't gone, so you ain't really leaving, you (insert pejorative adjective here)" Crowd:
One sub ends late July, one expires 2012
(I got double charged a year ago, but I figured "Meh - I love this game, I'll use the time, so nbd! Oooh, the irony, lols)
And no, YOU can't haz my stuff.

For the people thinking that this is emo tears:
Yeah, probably. I hate break-ups, and I'm a chick, so I get to cry if I want.

For the folks that think I'm being unreasonable:
If the real issues are addressed to my satisfaction, then yeah, I'll resub - I already have the GTC for it. (That was the ONE THING I asked "Santa" for last Christmas.) If I don't re-sub, I'll see if there's a "Plex For Good" event available. I can cash it all in and give it to a Good Cause, rather than let CCP keep it. Funny thing about all that stuff I have earned with my efforts and received in exchange for the $14.95/mo - if I sell it, convert to Plex, and add that to the "Plex For Good" fund. It costs me nothing (additional), gives to a Good Cause, and deprives someone who hurt me of something they want (admittedly, not much, but it's something, and it does someone else some good). Revenge is a dish best served cold - and I have ANOTHER FULL YEAR to decide whether I need revenge or not.

Folks,.. i urge EVERYONE to have a look at this Vid,... LISTEN TO THE SONG, READ THE TEXT and post this in your sig as a PROTEST to the path CCP is willing to walk.


Seriousely, if you listen to it, this song can't be more dead on to what CCP is trying to PULL OFF

-1 alt account, sub runs out this week.

Main account doesn't run out until august. I plan on keeping that account open in the hope that CCP changes course.

Just came back 2 weeks ago, was really liking it - then this Micropayment hits. I just cancelled my account, and wont resub my other two accounts either (was planned after a few weeks)

Letting my account lapse after 5 1/2 years. I am extremely disappointed in the implementation of MT within Eve and the future vision indicated by CCP spokespersons.

I have so much I'd like to say about the good times and the bad... but it is just lost in the frothing vitriol of both sides at the moment.

If CCP puts non-vanity items on their store I'll defenitely think about quitting my 3 EVE accounts.

Posted - 2011.06.25 21:45:00 - [1677]

I've unsubbed and will spend my remaining 47 days (funnily enough I just had someone pay for a very old buddy invite) protesting, after which I plan on an extended vacation from Eve to play other games and try new MMOs, or maybe revisit some old favourites like EQ1 for six months or so. What then? I'll check back in on the state of Eve, and if it's gone down the crapper as expected, I won't ever be coming back.

russian community reaction.
21 pages so far. main idea - microtransactions=bad, if they will affect gameplay - uninstall eve =)
Tbh, most of .ru online games are made on f2p basis. Everyone who tried them - really fed of of GM shops Rolling Eyes

1150 people cancelling or not renewing a total of 2572 accounts.

So out of 300K+ accounts that's what, 8/10ths of a percent?
While it may not seem much, EVE can't afford to bleed players at this rate for long.

I think they can, and regardless, THEY think they can. The only people really sweating this at CCP are the CSRs dealing with angry customers. Welcome to being a "calculated loss". We are the predicted churn, something not to be avoided or appeased, but actively planned for.

What do you think that recent customer survey was all about? You think it was something ordinary, something that CCP frequently (or ever) did in the past? That the questions about things like how much time you played per week (calculating addiction), how much money you spent on gaming and other hobbies (calculating pricing) were just because they wanted to provide YOU with :better EVE:?

Read Hilmar's email again. This is all part of the plan.

FWIW, I cancelled my two accounts and my three characters are awaiting their biomass countdowns. I won't be coming back. This game is addicting but in the end, not that addicting that I can't find something more worthwhile to do 20+ hours a week.
