I deleted it because I accidentally posted on the wrong thread, I had intended to post it on the thread about the snowballs being deleted. But yes, I have problems with limited edition items being converted into normal items because I think the filaments could make for an exciting new content. I want the filaments to become a permanent loot item that could be made into a rarer drop, but could make for some interesting PVP opportunities.
As for the snowballs I dislike it because you have items that have been in game for years, and since CCP decided to make the old snowballs worthless they have set a precedence that if they decide all of the collectable items you got can be changed or deleted. It makes the limited items that much more pointless. Imagine if CCP decides they want to make new limited time ships that replace old AT rewards but are useless after a certain time? Or if they decide that faction or officer items are now limited time only items, and that your stocks will become worthless.
I have been playing eve for close to 12 years and I have some stuff that was given away nearly that long ago. I really don’t like the fact that some of my most cherished or collectable stuff may suddenly become worthless, or be outright deleted. Sure the EULA says it all belongs to CCP, but CCP is not helping itself making people think that all of their assets are just temporary and can be messed with or deleted at a moments notice.
I mean hell maybe some people don’t care if their stuff can be deleted or changed at a moments notice. But we aren’t talking about a nerf or a buff here. We are talking about making things completely worthless with no warning whatsoever and with no compensation in terms of isk at all.
