No, really. Years ago people complained about 2,50USD for a horse armour in Oblivion and the publisher caved in and made it cheaper. Now you charge 20USD for a jacket and nearly 80 for a monocle? Seriously?

Yes, really. They're serious. There's even a DevBlog about it from the brass.

Yes, they ARE serious.

The only joke here are the people making these decisions. Hence, EVE has become a joke.

the funny (better: scary) thing is: they're selling nothing but pixels. What is a jacket in EVE? it's colored pixels.
so you (ccp) want me to pay you 20 $ for differently colored pixels ("designed" by....lol) ?

really?? please, someone, anyone @ ccp :: get a reality check.

kthxbye

New clothing for your avatar should come free with every 10m SPs.

Noobs will then run around in cheap looking stuff, and those who stay with EVE get better and better clothing to choose from. And for free. One can then see who invested not only money but time as well into EVE.

The Noble Exchange shop is just cheap crap, no matter how expensive you make it.

Honestly I could care less about the actual price of vanity items because I'm never going to touch them.

I do care about the disdain for the community and opinion that selling game affecting items is a possibility.

It's even more funny considering that the context in which those pixels are used, can barely be considered a part of EvE yet.

It's almost like selling us a steering wheel, but letting us wait for the car.

Dont like the vanity items, dont buy them. Some people gladly pay that much money for colored pixels.

As for the possible ammo/ships etc in the future, thats just another paranoid prophet rant like the hundred other threads out there. CCP wont release something like that because they would loose more money then theyd make.

The entire game is colored pixels. It has no value outside of it being a game... no one cares except a small player base of an already small Eve player base. People protesting and lagging out Jita are akin to the idiots that burn down cities when their sports team wins or when cops get acquitted. They're just trashing up their 'home'.

CCP understands that 75% of people saying that they are quitting aren't really quitting. Then of the 25% who do, will be back in the next 2 months after they realize their Jealous rage because they can't afford the vanity item is more silly than the items themselves.

How hard is it to understand..

What has CCP spent their money recently on developing? spaceship mechanics? no! ...monocles and such.

what will they spend on developing in the future?
spaceship mechanics that earn them precisely $0? (since according to them, people into this kind of thing are 'wrong')...

or more MT products? (whether game affecting or not.. )

This is hilariously pathetic.
