CCP markets Eve as a cold, hard, heartless place where giving everyone you can a good skewering over is a laudable goal, and you all cheer.

Poor sots from other MMOs come here and can't deal with the harshness of it all and you all gather round yelling HTFU and GTFO.

Now CCP is revealed as being not one tiny bit different than the game they create and promote, the game YOU cheer, and you all start whining and moaning about how awful, mean and heartless CCP is.

Seriously?

You little children are a laugh riot a minute.

I say PROPS to CCP for having it out in the open.

Customers are for doing over and making a profit from.

Greed *IS* good.

CCP *IS* EvE.

HTFU or GTFO.

I'll just assume that killing you to win at chess is valid since you basically kill stuff in the game too.

Wanna join me for a game sometime? /me loads shotgun

Fail analogies and butthurt whining is all you can offer?

As I suspected.

Rugby is a pretty tough game too, people get their arms and legs broken and teeth kicked in all the time playing that. But the moment that Rugby Football Association Referees start selling extra balls for $$$ in the middle of the match it turns the game into a mockery.

Get the picture yet?

This is all about the money, monkeyboy.

Any lines between 'in-game philosophy and out-of-game reality' as you put it disappeared a long time ago with the sale of the first GTC.

CCP made a hard ass game.

They play just as hard ass at making a profit.

I say cheers to BOTH concepts.

Whiners.

More failed analogies.

Pathetic.

This is nothing but a logical evolution of paying extra real world cash to gain an advantage.

Nothing that hasn't been being done in this game, sanctioned, for years now.

Get over it.

Your either very stupid or a good troll but I am going to humour you with a response. If you need to pay for your advantage then you obviously need to find something easier sister. There is no logical, natural evolution to offer people the chance to get an advantage in game for money. Its a competitive game, based on skill and knowledge. Having the size of a wallet enter into that equation is game breaking.

Which is exactly why I am laughing my ass off at all of these whiners.

I personally could care less about the new stuff. Won't change my gameplay one iota. I don't "pay" to play , and havent for over a year.

CCP got my last real world pound 12 months ago. I'll play "for free" as long as there is a mechanism to do so.

Having more ways and reasons for fools to try and buy an advantage simply makes it that much easier for me to leech along on the gravy train for no real world cash from my own pocket.

More pizza and beers for me!

Yay!


LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe what has most of us so upset is that we thought EVE was above the mistakes that lesser games have made that essentially destroyed themselves due to MT. what we fear is not corporate greed, not at all. its game destroying cash shop that will take all effort and skill out of the game and make success in PVP and industry dependent on how much your willing to spend above your monthly subscription. it has happened time and time again in games, it will start slow with vanity items, then they will do something like remove a skill or module or slots from a ship because its overpowered and they need to "balance" the game. then several months later "due to popular demand, we have decided to return X item to the EVE world, at a price, if you want to use it."

THIS is what we fear, because it has happened. and it looks like history is doomed to repeat itself with EVE if even part of what was in that leeked newsletter is considered as an option for EVE.

this massive rage you are experiencing is not emoragequit syndrome. it is an intervention. This is our "EVE Spring" we will not be silenced until these concerns are addressed by the highest powers that be at CCP.

One and the same thing, matey, one and the same thing.

Any belief otherwise is polyanna.

It all started the day the first GTC was sold.

Once there becomes a way to buy things on the almighty Visa, regardless of how round-about in the beginning, the direct purchase is an inevitability.

People have been buying GTC with real world cash and selling in game to purchase characters, ships, modules and materials to gain an advantage for years.

This is very literally nothing new. It is simply a more direct, transparent way of doing it instead of the old mental ************s pretending it was something else.

Maybe I'm getting old here, I don't know. HTFU? Hug the f*ck up? Well, I'll give you a hug, if it means that much to you, I guess.
