I did not think 70$ for a monocle was bad....

its only like 1.3b, that only a few hours of game play to earn anyway. Just cuz you are poor doesn't mean everyone is.

The monocle doesn't give any 'real' ingame advantages either, where as that $500 virtual gun seems like it clearly would.

I'd pay $70 for the eye piece before I'd spend the $70 for a carton of smokes so I can have a smelly face, cloths, car, house, and die in a hospital bed oozing pus from lung cancer....

Is that when you get a SUPER lucky drop in a plex? I don't think anyone can earn 1.3b in a few hours repeatedly.

I don't get why you people keep converting isks to real money when it comes down to nex items. Isn't 70$ your pirate bs aswell? your slave implants? your faction fitted dramiel?
You can buy that stuff for isks too, which you earn ingame, it's not different from any other item in the game.

But those things don't come from the NeX Store! Must hate on NeX Store!! brb, posting some angry comments and disliking all of Justin Biebers music videos on Youtube, k back, yeah, **** the NeX Store!!!!

Why do you hate the NeX Store?

Because everyone else hates the NeX store and the guys in Amarr local told me that hating the NeX Store was cool just like how clicking on Justin Biebers videos on a daily basis and leaving derrogatory comments is cool, and just like how posting on popular music videos with the comment "the dislike bar is the size of justin biebers *****" cool. baaaaaaaaabaaaaaaaabaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Oh sorry didn't know what just came over me.

$500 -> PLEX -> ~10 Billion ISK

So that gun is still cheaper than a unfitted supercap. Razz

Wait for the skill point injection quafe soft drink. That is what comes when cloth designers have officially failed to deliver. Training Quafe will sell like candy and cost only 3500 aurums / bottle of 150k skill points. With the rate you can get 100m skillpoints with only 10 000$.

Of course this would be bargain to our monocleheads.

Whoever decides to buy that better have lots of lube at home...damn.

I'm tempted to quote Einstein now, but I've really been overusing that particular quote in recent times, and it's not the one about relativity...

TBH I don't understand this whine around $70 monocles - except for they are really ugly and removes one eyebrow. Ever heard about $4500 castles in Ultima Online or $1500 worth swords in Everquest?

Yes it is, as a faction BS allows you to make isk faster and/or easier and slave implants make you a tougher armor tanker so you're harder to kill, while implants enhance your skill training speed....


A mnonocle does fat **** all basically and thus on that basis alone, far too expensive for something that does nothing...It's actually an insult to human intelligence to price a monocle for the same price as a faction or T2 battleship, but each is free to spend their isk in the dumbest way possible as it's their money and not mineRazzWink

With just one difference, that guy has already made that money back and then some. Entropia Universe's currency is only gained by either other players giving it to you for goods/services or you purchase PED (in-game currency) at a rate of 10 PED per $1 USD.

There are people who actually make a living from playing the game.
