To paraphrase the skirted viking: "WHAT THE BASTARD SHIT ?!?!"

At this stage can anyone besides yourself see your clothes anyway? (Well your lower clothes, you see the top of people's jackets in the character display).

Letrange said...

@Stabs unless it's that 80$ monocle, or a jacket/shirt - no

Magson said...

Yeah, those prices are ridiculous. Here's the threadnaught.

yah someone at ccp forgot the 'micro' part of microtransactions.

Totally in agreement on this one. $20 is more than enough to pimp out your character however you want for life. I'm debating whether or not to start paying for accounts just to make sure my isk isn't contributing to this scam.

The more I think about this, the more I think that if I ever get back to EVE (which is looking less and less likely) I will walk around in the standard boxer-briefs!

and suddenly, you see why the bittervets are bitter.

Years of bullshit like this latest debacle have eroded their faith.

"This is why bitter vets are bitter"

I cannot fathom this comment here. "Bitter vets" screamed, wailed, and ranted against "dress up dolls", "space Sims" and walking in stations in general.

And when the product is released, they are standing on the street corners crying that the skirt they've never wanted in the first place is too expensive?

The rationale for high prices is obvious: protection against the rapid conversion of PLEX to aurum. If the prices were reasonable, enough folks would be falling over backwards to dress up their dolls (despite saying that they never wanted to) and the price of PLEX would skyrocket, which would create a massive shitstorm from those of us that buy PLEX for game time.

There were a lot of good features and good fixes for Internet spaceships in this release, its a pity is overshadowed by a massive pile of steaming crap spouted out by those upset about the high price of digital clothes.
