Chribba is the only guy who could potentially be called a celebrity.

He hasnt talked much lately.


Mintchip is an EVE celeb of sorts, though I haven't seen her on here either unless it's incognito.

Chribba never says much on the forums. I don't blame him.


I'm a celeb too.

Most people are superstars (in their own minds) If CCP cares then they will solicit the opinion of the "celebs" in a more discreet way. If not, - well thats sort of what we are worried about.

I've yet to see a csm take a position siding with CCP on this issue lately either.

Also, Jade isn't on CCP's side on this.

A forum superstar.

That was never my goal in EVE. I just wanted a system with my thumbprint on it.

A tab on my corp profile for settled systems
Pay the TCU bills, pay the IHub bills, do all the admin stuff everyone seems to hate, let others pew-pew and just do my paperwork.

Everyone is terrified to death I might be a spy or something. I dunno.

However this shakes out, I think it would be nice if someone made a list of where all 'EVE Celebrities' stood on this issue. While more nuanced positions are possible, I think it makes the most sense to divide it up into 3 camps.

On the side of the protesters.

Neutral/silent/waffling/attention-whoring while saying nothing.

On the side of CCP.

If this ends well for the game/players, EVERYBODY will claim to have stood with those of us who oppose CCP's madness. It'd be nice if there were a concise list that prevented them from lying about it.

I propose adding to the protesters: arydanika and mintchip

I propose adding to neutral: chribba

I propose adding to CCP: jayne and jade

As far as i'm concerned, if i were a much younger player in EVE i'd be seriously ****ed if Pay to win becomes standard operating procedure from now onwards, as it creates 2 classes of players within the same game, and from what i can tell items purchased thru MT can never be destroyed at least as far as clothing and accessories like the monocle, so that goes against one of the fundamental gameplay elements of EVE itself.....It's death penalty if you get killed.


Implants can be lost, hardwirings and the ship and a good chunk of it's fittings too, and depending on the ship that was destroyed, the insurance might cover only a small fraction even if fully insured(think capital ships here)....You can imagine if custom ships bought thru MT can't be lost no matter how many times they're blown up, especially if they sell them for insane prices at the MT shop.



As for me, i'm an 8 year char and started pretty much when the game did, so most of stuff that CCP could potentially add to the MT store i either already have it or can easily afford it, and this char will be pretty close to the 200 million skill point mark by late next year, so in terms of overall picture, MT doesn't really affect me in the least as i earned everything the old fashion way and proud of it....Wink

One of the Devs mentioned the $70 monocle ( and any other NeX shop items ) do in fact get destroyed if you get podded.

I guess that makes the situation better then, though it does make those that bought those things rather dumb for doing so as it is almost the price of a dreadnaught we're talking about here....Keep in mind that i'm putting faith on what that developer said, though CCP shadow last year told that MT would never be a part of eve period, and here we have it with Incarna...Razz


To be quite honest, users have the ultimate power in making or breaking MT and the extra money CCP is banking on making with the feature by simply not using it at all, even for the smallest things, but that requires users with the mental discipline and long term determination not to take shortcuts of any kind, something that many have already proved otherwise such as when using dozens of plex purchases to fund their own super carrier and titans....


I've always been playing eve using a single account and never used plexes and will never use manual transactions either, but again that's just me....

As the #1 Justin Bieber fan in Eve Online and a pretty important person I can say that I don't much care for the direction this game is going.

Did somebody ask for EVE celebrities?

Well if you must know, I'm one of the leading proponents of TEST's new program to buy monocles for all our super capital pilots.

I do want to be able to spin my Nag again though, it looks goofy in CQ, and managing all my carriers hangars is a ***** as well.

Yeah that's how he posted in that thread about progress on the new forums....

Chribba is being smart, he's laying low right now. CCP seems to be having a banhammer for EVE celebrities that speak against them eg Helicity and Liang.

I'm not a celeb by any stretch, but everyone knows where I stand. I'm not shy about going on record about it. Smile

Edit: In fact here are my predictions about how the CSM meeting goes.
My predictions for better or for worse.
If I end up being horribly wrong, I'll be the first to admit it as well.

Shut up Miilla. No one wants to see your creative writing in this forum.

I was actually serious.
Serious, and seriously wrong. I haven't quit and am not planning too, nor do I let my subs run out.

Chribba didnt voice an opinion either way, but not planning to quit is a form of voting with your wallet.

In my opinion Chribba is waiting for the option to MT more mining capitals in high-sec for all his alts.

Could we make Hillmar cry on Operah?

Besides, from what I have read Jade has made excellent posts about CCP's actions and how they might ruin EVE.

This should answer the ops question:

What I would like to see from this CSM / CCP meeting on the future of Incarna / Eve

And a bit of gratuitous protest propaganda!
