Looks like we just hit the second milestone. 2000 Aurum for everyone. Ah ah ah.

The second unlock has been pushed back. Looks like some people are being unscrupulous and cheating the system to get more Aurum. You can read more about it in this thread by CCP Fallout.

Talking of unscrupulous practices, the free Aurum you are giving out unscrupulously forces players to use a feature they otherwise would not be interested in.

Because they love their customers.

Or, they are hoping it will cause a lot of people to buy additional AUR because the free AUR isn't enough to buy the things people really want.

Spank, I hate to be the one to point this out, but...

Just because you have money, that doesn't mean you need to spend it.

If you're staring at a blank website forever while fighting with your caps, that might be why you are losing.

Also :ccp: why have you made a site that is only available to certain customers (the special olympics people)?

I know, I'm so angry that they're giving me free stuff! And not only that, but they've threatened to bomb my house if I don't use it and buy more! They're literally forcing me to use the NEX store! *foams at the mouth*

I see AUR in my wallet as is, but it will soon read 1000 instead of 0. I'm just as capable of ignoring it. If the problem with this boils down to anger with CCP using a successful business tactic to sway those on the fence about the feature, so what? We should all be able to independently make our own decisions as to what to do, or not do, with the aurum.

The Emperor: Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the forums , are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. It was *I* who allowed the players to know the location of the NeX Store. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. Oh, I'm afraid the door will be quite operational when your friends arrive.

How are 'we' forced to use it? im prolly not even gonna bother looking at the store as it doesn't rly interest me. If my wallet shows 1000 AUR or 0 AUR doesn't bother me.

When i got the snowball launcher thing, i wasn't forced to use that either.

the answer is simple: do as you do now and ignore it. if it doesn't become a common thing, maybe wait some months, buy whatever you can afford with the free AUR you get without buying more, sell it for isk.

I suspect that for accounting purposes they're counting PLEX converted to AUR as the 'income' site. With all this free aurum being given away, it pretty much invalidates them using the number of items sold.

That being the case, in theory buying stuff with the free AUR shouldn't show up as 'income' for them. Unless they do some complicated voodoo and write off the given-away AUR as an expense...which is about as appealing as eating rocks if you're concerned about your numbers at all.

It's another 1000, then 1500, then 2000.

Loads fine for me.

I don't really mind being bribed to be honest. I mean, I like playing with internet spaceships anyway, so that's just gravy on top, right?

So let me see if I have this straight, CCP got scammed whilst plying their own NEX/Aurum Marketing scam via the EvE is Real site. Oh the irony.

You know initially I had no problem with the thought of having the NEX store, but the way it's been implemented has actually caused me to despise this part of the game. As far as I'm concerned the whole Incarna/WiS portion of the game has been completely tainted by the 'brightspark' marketing people who have taken it in the direction they have.

The saddest thing for me is Incarna/WiS could have been a really fantastic addition to the game, but instead as soon as CCP decided to monetize it they lessened the potentialy great experience that it could have been.

It seems the apprenctices have become masters, you trained us well!

I personally am schocked however that honest, scrupulous players of EVE-online, well know for their love of fairness and ponyland miracles would stoop so low as to exploit a system for their own personal benefit!

How dare they! This is not in the spirit of eve! (note: /sarcasm)

Interesting. I wonder what the data is for a macrotransaction store.

if CCP said they would give you so much SP instead of arum, ya'll would be jumping at them for it.

ffs it is free, like those sp you got for the downtime, use it abuse it, but dirty t-shirts and soiled boxershorts , it is free for once.

oh btw vote for my pictures the panoramics are cool :)

They are asshats cause there's nothing in the NeX store priced at 1,000 AUR...
