CCP is going to sell items on their NEX. There is no question about it now, they are going to sell anything and everything of VALUE.

So. I ask you, why are those things, CCP is going to sell, valuable?

If a Monocle had no value, no one would buy them. If a Scorpion had no value and no one cared about ships in eve, no one would buy them.

But, all of those things have value. WHY?

Because of each and every player who has spent the last YEARS of their lives playing eve and making it into the game it is.

Items have value ONLY because the player base makes them valuable. We talk about them, we use them, WE CREATE THE VALUE.

Who would buy a monocle for $80 fricken dollars if they were face value? 8 pixels on an avatar? No. Their value comes form the PLAYERBASE.

It is the players, 100%, who give VALUE to the items.

So. Players give value to items. CCP sells items. How much of that money do you get? How considerate of YOU is CCP after selling these items and pocketting ALL of the money?

Would anyone spend $80 dollars for a Monocle if they were available in a Single Player game? No mater how fricken awesome that game is, NO ONE, at all, EVER, would buy a Monocle.

The ONLY meaningful variable is MULTI PLAYER. i.e. me and you.

I dont think the players have any legal ownership in value. Nor do i think CCP should pay out money to players for creating value.

But i do think they should be a little more considerate of their customers. CCP's treatment of its paying customers, their lifeblood, is appalling.
