EVE is first and foremost a game about internet spaceships. There is no-one moaning about the new super-sick Turrets, or the AWESOME new entry screen (the one with the maller). Because they are GOOD they are just what Ev E is about and that the players want. If people want to spend 70 bucks on a monocle, that's their decision.This has already been pointed out in multiple posts of the Eve Community, but I feel compelled to pointedly add my own angle of view: The whole thing boils down, as in the real world, to a question of good and legitimate government - Eve (and The Dark Eye alike), as a mutual product of Company and Community, has been and could still be a model case of how Capitalism, while being about money, nevertheless builds upon information (Hayek's POV: markets are about processing information, primarily, and money is only a means to that).Undock from the flow of community information - and your business gets over the heads of the People, loses its contact to Reality, and finally produces its own legitimation crisis.We have a pen&paper RPG in Germany, The Dark Eye (Das Schwarze Auge), which works as a mutual maintenance/caretaking of community-by-company and company-by-community in a way similar to Eve.So, finally, the idea of legitimate government is not a metaphor her, it's the real thing - thus we may adopt the slogan that led to the Boston Tea Party of 1773: No taxation without representation! For Eve is not only a game (and a virtual economy), but an example of real world economy as well, to which the Community is dedicating not only their money, but their irretrievable lifetime, too! Additional new currancy Affect on PLEX prices Bypassed the CSM.
Subscription fees are the taxes payed by the Community to keep its Government up and running - while they duly expect that this Government be Good and Legitimate and hence take care of the needs and aspirations of its People.
These clothes could then be manufactured by players in bulk amounts using PI materials. Second, can someone explain the video card overheating bit?
The BP's if long enough run (or BPO's) might justify the higher price tag, as they produce thousands of items of clothing. I've talked to few folks who are complaining that the cards are hitting 90c...and?
Most requested feature of CQ testing, ignored by CCP. We have a pen&paper RPG in Germany, The Dark Eye (Das Schwarze Auge), which works as a mutual maintenance/caretaking of community-by-company and company-by-community in a way similar to Eve.
Community Request: Return the hanger view and have an "Exit to CQ/Wi S" button. The simulated world, compared to other Fantasy RPG's, displays (imho) an unrivalled richness which is due to the engagement and the contributions of the community, while the company (whose body corporate has changed over times while the core team has been more or less persisting) keeps a close contact to the community.
I've never really got involved with the politics side of Ev E, and, didn't realise how interesting it is and how passionate people are about this game.
