Personally and the key here is “personally” I could care less that CCP has brought out a store that sells ingame items. This is a business, not your own personal plaything that only certain players control. If you don’t like what they are selling, then don’t buy anything. But to run around trying to break the game (like the recent events in Jita) is both idiotic and immature. So you can buy a new blue shirt in the “vanity store”… whoopee! This mindless blathering about game breaking items being snuck into the game is hogwash. This game is about one thing. SKILL POINTS. Let me repeat that SKILL POINTS. You can have one thousand Titans with a gabzillion Isk but only one thousand skill points and you are nothing in the game. Skill points always is, and always will be, the most important thing to an Eve player. There is nothing in Incarna that affects this. In a world economy that is on the brink, it is better that CCP looks for unique funding ways to keep the doors open, than to just go the way of other games and disappear. Change is here. Either get on board or stay on shore.

Your opinion is based on a very poor understanding of things no doubt based on the 'me' centric view you have of the world.

Allow me to explain with just this example.

EVE is a game not a business. CCP the makers of EVE, are a business so to say they won't ever introduce 'game breaking' items because it is 'hogwash' is idiotic. This you say in the same run on wall-of-text rant that they need to make money, 'to keep the doors open' screams to all who can read how sadly misinformed you are, that or how you lack the capacity to understand at all.

Vanity items don't matter.

The "blathering" about game breaking items started because of an leaked internal CCP Bulletin where they were discussing the introduction of advantage items.

If you could buy with money a 'gold' version of a battleship that dealt twice as much damage or had significantly better resists and that had the same prerequisites of the 'vanila' battleship, that is effectively the same thing as buying the skillpoints you define as the one thing this game is about.

Or even more literally, if you could buy some sort of "learning booster" that accelerated your skillpoint acquisition.

Having personal opinions is great, but you might want to read a bit more about whatever you're having an opinion on before voicing them.

Too late. Already bought it. They spent the money on another game where vampire dolls are in-context. But lacking any expansion for EVE since they spent all the money on vampire dolls, they just added the vampire dolls to EVE.

It's like subscribing to a fly-fishing magazine for a year, and 6 months in, they change the magazine to one about sewing. But they still got your money.

But you apparently are not the kind of person who gets ****ed at this stuff. Whatever content CCP puts out is just fine with you. Raids, instances, it's all good as long as CCP makes a buck off you. Right?

As I said in the opening of my post 'Personally I" (which means only me)could care less if I can buy a pair of hip huggers or and big yellow pimp hat from the 70's for my character. Actually, I would buy that pimp's hat if it because available. The internal document is not the BUSINESS MODEL that CCP has adopted. It is just an idea bantered about and then dismissed. People should be able to put out internal ides within their PRIVATE papers with having children run around breaking things because they dont like whats in it. If you dont like whats coming, vote with your cash this will change their mind. But dont go ruining other peoples game. This game is the property of CCP, they lease you a license to play it. Withhold your payment, and their minds will be changed.

I, personally can´t care less about vanity items, may players buy them or not. What i care about, is selling SP for $$$ in the nex store in the future, for example, and as you think this game is all about SP, i´m sure you will buy when introduced.

This game is NOT about gaining SP, it´s about gaining experiance. After 6 month you can fly a maxed out rifter, and blow the 100m skillpoint guy out of his one, if he´s unexperianced.

Failed or CCP alt detected.

Personally and in my opinion I could careless about what YOUR opinion or personal feelings are. Since its obvious you can't see the possible longterm ramifications of going down the MT route. Or the fact that you don't seem to grasp the idea of the amount of time, money, and effort thats been put into Incarna. While at the same time many core features(that involve spaceships mind you) are left broken and underdeveloped.

Also this game isn't all about SP. If you think that then you must be new. You could have 100m SP and still be **** at this game. After a certain amount of SP the only thing you gain is variety.
