From the July 2011 Eve Online newsletter:
'To celebrate, we are rewarding all active EVE Online accounts with 1,000 Aurum each. Thatís over 107,000 PLEX worth of Aurum that will be distributed to the EVE community on Friday, July 29th to spend'

I'm speechless. This is gross.

Aurum is worthless as it has no reverse exchange rate.

If it does not take more then a little aurum to upset you, then eve is clearly not the right game for you.

You are very right, obviously Eve/CCP took a turn where this is not the right game for me.

And yes, I'm upset that instead of getting some minimal dose of new game play for my money, CCP spams me with a mail promising to give me 1000 Aurum that I can't use to do anything with. What's exactly the celebration in having 1000 Aurum in your wallet? And whatever the marketing pheeps say - it's not worth a single PLEX.

No, you can only petition it to be removed.

Can you even buy anything with 1k AUR? If not then its another sad attempt at CCP trying to get people to use their ****ty MT store.

Eve is not about instant gratification you need to wait until all the aur is unlocked, but is guess that is to much to expect from wow players.

Your talking about a MT store which is all about instant gratification. However I believe you seem pretty proud of yourself that you got to tell someone to gbw though, so I won't take that away from you.





Even if you are an idiot.

Yes, you can buy stuff with 1k AUR. AFAIK, one item only right now (some boots). So expect its ISK sell value to be far, FAR below the "fair" IST->PLEX->AUR exchange rate for the foreseeable future, since a lot of people get it just to exchange it for ISK.
However, eventually, everybody will get up to 5500 "free" AUR as eveisnotsofake.web site "rewards" - and that would be the total AUR equivalent of roughly 600k PLEX across the entire player base (while not actually costing CCP much, if anything).
You might want to wait until then to buy something from the NEX.

I was talking about the free give away aurum, but i guess it would be to much of you to except you to stay on topic.
