What would you use it for...besides buying the monocle.

For me, I'd have one awesome sushi dinner.

Buy 10-30 discounted games from Steam? "Slightly" better value for money than monocle. Laughing

Because paying a chef to NOT cook something is better then paying for clothes to not wear. I love the Irony...

No but really I would probably have bought really bad food with it. Pizza, chinese take out, junk food, etc. And I don't need that. In fact I better buy some more monocles and tighten up my budget.

If you only had $60, you should probably save it and try to get a job.

I don't see how buying something you want counts as being fleeced?

It's about what I spend on groceries for one week. Probably a bit short if I count all the basic ingredients that you always have in your kitchen but don't buy every week. So basically, a truckload of salad.

Well, as it so happens, I ALREADY (very symbolically and ironically) took an extra $60 I had laying around and bought a DIFFERENT game with it.

Seriously, I did. I had been holding off on the purchase of a specific title for a while because I wasn't sure it was going to be worth my time and/or money. But, since this DISGRACE with CCP, I bought it just for the satisfaction of giving the money to a DIFFERENT gaming company; one that is actually deserving of my money.

And, the way CCP is going, it is looking like I may have a lot more of my "fun money" (as I call the fund that is my "entertainment" money) freed up soon. Not that I'm going to quit the game, though that may happen soon too if CCP doesn't get it's shyt together FAST. But, I deffinately won't be paying them when the servers go dark because CCP is out of business. Don't think that they can't go under from this (in spite of the incoming flames from the trolls and dev alts haunting the forums lately). I have seen bigger companies fail with less cause.

But, who knows, maybe the Monocle morons will buy enough of those ugly things and keep CCP afloat that way. That would be cool. Then maybe CCP would stop trying to squeeze the rest of our wallets and be happy with the money they get from those idiots.

Anyway, I think that covers your question.

Cheers mate for a fun thread.

If both parties are happy with the result of a transaction, can't see the problem. In every transaction, the individuals involved both value what the other has more than what they have themselves, otherwise no transaction would take place. who are you to judge what others find value in?

$60 (US) doesn't go real far, but to further quantify the ridiculousness of the monocle....


  1. a tank of gas in pennsylvania, depending on how big your tank is

  2. 6 months of basic Netflix

  3. a carton of cigarettes in PA

  4. a single, brand new premium release videogame

  5. 50+ apps and games for an IPhone

  6. 2 tier 7 (out of 10) premium heavy tanks in World of Tanks

  7. over 3 months of basic Gamefly

  8. almost 3 copies of Minecraft

  9. 2-3 indie games

  10. elderscrolls oblivion and morrowind GOTY editions from direct2drive

  11. 4-5 whole albums from ITunes

  12. 6 medium cheese pizzas (before taxes) from a locally owned shop i have here




i could go on, but you get the picture.

You could easily buy a half-decent singleplayer game with that sort of money or even a headset etc. whoever seriously bought those monocles had to be a complete moron.

I have some imaginary magic beans would you like to buy them ?

I'll do them to you at the low low price of $1000 because i like you and the only reason i want to sell them is i need a new pair of Japanese pants.

Yeah. So you keep saying.... over... and over... and over... and over... and over... in about 50 threads.

Maybe it's the truth, probably isn't. Point is, it doesn't matter if you're a liar or not. The point is CCP STILL got $60 for that piece of ugly crap, and its because of YOU that they got that $60 for almost nothing. Why? Because SOMEBODY paid cash for those plex you got. And when YOU burned them to get that ugly thing, CCP got the money that went into those plex for almost nothing. You supported a gaming system where CCP reaps MAXIMUM reward for almost no effort. The exact OPPOSITE of what they want and expect all of their customers, i.e. US, to do.

So THAT is why it doesn't matter how you got it, or them if you have multiples by now. That is why YOU are supporting CCP in their souless grab for cash. THAT is why I don't support you or any of the constant trolling you do.

Wait.... what the hell am I doing? Need to stop feeding the troll....

Oh, just so this post is still on topic: planning on going out and buying ANOTHER game besides Eve with ANOTHER $60 in a few days; just to make a point to myself.

/out everyone
