TL;DR:
CCP thought that, by just writing a simple 0 in the new expansion, won't do the trick ! It's way too common, it's old style, outdated. They needed something new, outrageous ! They thought that, by adding a diagonal line to a normal zero, it's a great idea. For example, an item that was 1000 isk before the expansion, now only costs 1 isk, followed by 6 half zeros !
As we know, the only accepted digits for an order are: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. There are no half zeros or zeros cut by an oblique/horizontal/vertical line, which makes my initial statement true: Everything is cheaper now

The long, unedited post:

Hey,
I have to admit that, after the expansion, in the first 30 minutes spent in game, I was kinda frustrated about the new UGLY font, but then I realised i could have some fun about it, so here we are :))

Of course, you're asking yourself: what the hell does it have to do your feelings and/or frustrations with the fact that everything got cheaper in eve. Well, it's simple: there are no more zeros now ! For example, an item that was 1000 isk before the expansion, now only costs 1 isk, followed by 6 half zeros !
What the hell is a half zero ?!? It's simple: CCP thought that, by just writing a simple 0 in the new expansion, won't do the trick ! It's way too common, it's old style, outdated. They needed something new, outrageous ! They thought that, by adding a diagonal line to a normal zero, it's a great idea.

However, I don't understand why they haven't chosen, for example, to draw an horizontal or a vertical line to those zeros if they wanted to be fancy, or even better: draw an oblique, an horizontal and a vertical line, all inside the same zero ! Don't tell me that ain't fancy ! And just to show you how brain damaged I am, think about this: They could do a Matryoshka-doll-style-zero ! If you're asking yourself "wtf is a Matryoshka-doll-style-zero, i have to admit: that's a legit question. Wikipedia is our best friend, explaining what a Matryoshka doll is:
Quote:

A matryoshka doll is a Russian nesting doll (Russian: Матрёшка) which is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other


So, after reading that definition, here's what a Matryoshka-doll-style-zero would be: instead of wasting space writing lots of zeros, they could just compress the space and, for example, instead writing 1.000.000, they could just write 1 followed by a single zero, with another 5 smaller zeroes inside it , each of them constantly decreasing in size !!! That would be fancy, bro ! Anyway, the idea is: everything got cheaper in EVE since every order that had a zero inside, doesn't have it anymore. As we know, the only accepted digits for an order are: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. There are no half zeros or zeros cut by an oblique/horizontal/vertical line, which makes my initial statement true: Everything is cheaper now

Please, discuss if my theory and ideas are valid ! Those who didn't notice the huge amount of sarcasm involved, don't bother to reply, just go watch some more p r 0 n :))

Good thing you tipped your hand in the first paragraph so I could avoid the entire wall of text.

Ya know sweetheart, I like when you start talking and re making the world but I'd really like you to think about stop smoking that stuff, doesn't makes you look good.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

If this is meant for humor: Lol sö randum Xd zeroception we have to go deeper! hurrr durrr

But if for some unfortunate reason you are serious, I'd advise you to start your journey at this article and discover why the slash in the zero is one of relatively few global standards for differentiating a 0 from a capital O in situations of high required readability.

The problem is that you can't agrue against nonsense, at least not logically. You need something more nonsensical and hilarious in order to counter it. Cool
