$60 ... Hmmm....

Take the wife out to dinner

Maybe finally replace the PS3 controller with the worn out X button.

Put a new office chair on lay-a-way.

Buy some new turn signals for my motor cycle.

Some new shorts...

Pretty much a million other things before MT'ing a damn video game.

For $60 I could buy a couple of more months of landlord's insurance for one of my investment properties.

$60 really doesn't stretch too far.

Since I'm a poor student I don't have 60$ to spend. However I have loads of isk. Better buy some fancy clothes ingame since RMT is not allowed.

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

Japanese prostitute? I wouldn't recommend it unless you want a mouth full of blisters.

Well since you clearly don't, how about I wipe a small fraction of my wealth on my akita's arse and send it to you? That will amount to $60 + about $500 of my time.. But since I'm not into investing in useless items such as monocles, I don't think I'll bother.

Hadden't done the maths on monocle prices, Holy hell how can ccp justify that kind of costs for a decorative item, that truely is sickening. PAY TO PLAY games have NO room for item malls, cash shops what ever you want to call them its total BS!

Got a lot more than just $60 laying around. But just because it's laying around does not mean that I'm compelled to buy a virtual monocle.



It's ironic that I've stopped playing this game and started playing AoC and today AoC is down whilst it's having a patch added that makes it F2P and an MT shop added.


Only reason I'm on this website rather than AoC forums, is these forums are generally more entertaining atm.

More like 66.50 (~$96.50)...

I could imagine spending this for something incredibly cool from the NeX store, as in incredibly incredible cool, but not for a Monocle - I spent ~5.55, which felt negligible, on the boots...

Other than that I would either squander this on a night out, send it to my gf for something for the house, or put it into some asset and forget about it...

Learn to trade currency, you just got ripped off, gratz


He couldn't of got anymore ripped off than the muppets that got fleeced by CCP when they bought a monocle.


My monocle, and the monocle of my cynoalt, were purchased with ISK.

Frankly if the only way you can afford a monocle is RL cash, you have failed at eve (and life).

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.


As long as who ever decides to buy your imaginary magic beans enjoys them more than the $1000, again, can't see a problem.

I'm starting to be kind of glad monocles are in the game. Don't have to interact with a person before you know they'll be a wortheless asshat.

$60 would probably go to beer for a night.

Exactly. The intent of the NeX items is not to cheat you out of your hard earned cash, but to suck vast quantities of idle ISK out of in-world -- ISK that represents a real world liability for CCP because it can be used to purchase PLEX and thereby game time for ISK holders, their friends, anyone they please.

Go to a bar, order a $58 bottle of Scotch and a bottle of Cola.

Because IRL trolling > internet trolling.

you'd be lucky to find a decent bottle of scotch in a supermarket for that price, never mind a bar... jesus you people really don't get out much do you

oh and tell me, does your local bar accept ISK?

Someone in one of these threads said, something to the effect of PLEX ingame was a debt for CCP. In away he's right, although it's more of a loan from the players buying PLEX, so the more PLEX ingame can be used without extending game time, the more CCP does not have to pay the loan back.

Clue to those who don't get it: Those who bought the monocle.... did not spend RL money to get it.

Think about it.





Don't worry; take your time. I know you'll need it.

I wouldn't take a recommendation of someone who has oral sex with hookers if it came with 60 dollars FFS.

If I had 60 dollars extra to spend I would buy my wife a lap dance at the ***** bar.
