I would totally be down for some traditional amarrian dress



I dream of doing a mission for the Sarum family where they actually give me a Sarum uniform that you can wear if you have the standing. (or even part of it so i have to collect them all)

And then wearing that uniform would get me more standing with sarum and imperial family but less with tash murkon and offcourse filthy minmatar and gallente.

BUT NO, nothing creative like that comes form the Incarna thinkers, they just plonk down ugly silver dresses and ask for 20 dollars.

And dear god, a corps hanger, that would be epic.

EDIT: also: personalising the statues in amarr stations in your own quarters (favorite enemies-leaders)

Conclusion: dump aurum and make more gameplay and interaction and production in your SANDBOX

Funding Dustbunnies with AURUM, that's the extent of what the NeX Stores involvement in EVE should be.

Anything else is just reducing the potential depth of EVE gameplay.

Nex (Cash Shop) / Aurum - removing sand from the sandbox since Incarna. Currently the only use for aurum is to buy virtual items in the in-game store, but Cockerill expects to expand its uses in the future.

Gametime!

Thats the only thing that should be availible per NEX store. We already pay for that game, you know?

Stop chirping about having everything included in your subscription fee because god know most of you neckbeards run missions all day and buy plex. We're talking about bad ass vanity customizations beyond what the core game offers. I'd support paying aurum for:

- my corp or alliance logo on a given ship
- the ability for skilled manufacturers to distinguish their line of ships. For example, after a ton of research and invention on hurricane bpos blah blah they get a new BPO that produces ships with a custom manufacturer logo. "huehue but it won't work with the market huehue" - just list it as "Hurricane [Corp Ticker]" or use contracts only.

Repeating your point in bold doesn't make it any less wrong. PLEX represents a payment to CCP.

Quote:

Should be included in the core functionality of the client. Making corporate identity and membership an "optional vanity customization" is a terrible design decision. The reason CCP was not hit even worse with last summer unsub crisis was that people like being associated with their friends and allies in-game and they get used to the gaming community feeling this fosters. Making celebration of that statement a "vanity" $ option behind a microtransaction paymnent is stupid turned up to 11.

Again, this should be included with the client for everyone who pays a subscription.

If you want to spent your money on microtransactions go find a free to play game to do it in.

Says the 2003 toon. Indeed, PLEX is a payment made by someone buying timecode. But not a real currency payment by the L4 farming neckbeards who tend to make the forum whine index skyrocket.

I would pay aurum to be able to delete other people's posts

I'd give isk(AUR) for a golden crown on top of my head. It will be the NEW monocle.

Yes Logo placement would be cool IMO....5$ USD per ship I would ba happy with, so whatever Aur equiv that is...

I would pay to paint my ship or choose a pattern then be able to adjust 2 or 3 of the colors in the pattern. $10 USD would be fine for a kit that say painted 3 ships or allowed u to repaint one ship 3 times.

I would pay for Corp / Alliance Logo's on my Ship.

I would of course pay that money as a Subscription fee to whatever game offered it.

I'm pretty sure that CCP originally announced that they would be introducing logos on ships long before there was any talk of this AURUM nonsense.

So we should be able to get them for free.

Ooooh, it's one of these threads.
So many tears.
-Self-entitled brats who think they are CCP
-Whiney knee-jerk doom-sayers who threaten to unsub after merely reading the OP
-People with terrible game-breaking suggestions as trollbait
-People who fall for said trollbait

It's all very amusing.

There is no reason whatsoever for anything to be available for AUR.

None.

Wrong.

Perfectly valid.
It's makes people so mad, and barely changes the game at all.

Incarna was the expansion for the forums. They changed loot tables of posters to drop 5x more tears.

Why not just pay in ISK and be done with this whole Aurum nonsense. Want cosmetics? Pay with ISK! Decals? ISK! Other stuff and things? ISK ISK and ISK!
