Materialism and nostalgia are for losers and suckers but I’m still a vapid, sentimental slave to my fashion. I’ve made peace with the fact that my ego makes up part of the wider tapestry of the masses but individual aesthetics helps color that tapestry to prevent us from becoming undifferentiated consumers to be processed like cattle.
At least, thats what I tell myself, I’m not a monk and getting enough shrooms for ego death is too expensive. The truth is EVE at its core is the story of your character in the wider world and one of the easiest ways to communicate what your guy is all about at a glance is cosmetics. So I’ll never get the cosmetic monkey off my back.
Yeah. I was mulling over my word choice there and if that would peeve anyone off. But like. I think it works still. Some marginal part of me cares and could probably empathize if I wanted to, but its not worth the effort getting bent outta shape over. I care some but way too little to do anything about it.
nobody can completly get rid of his ego ! and this is ok but everyone need to know why you do something ! everyone has his individual flavor that save us from being cattle !
its just a few ingame pixel ! and why do you have your ISK on your wallet if you dont buy some stuff you want ? but if CCP adds something you have since a long time then stfu and dont start crying ! you still have it ! if you want to sell it → nobody refuse it !
everyone can be mad, but be sure why youre mad ! and in 99% of such cases its not CCP !
You have fallen to an illusion of valuable ISK or items that are a property of someone at all. Everything what game consist of is property of company called CCP, including data, servers, ISK, your character, ships, etc… CCP only allows you to use the game and what it consists of.
Yes. They do things like that sometimes.
But CCP is not concerned with people having Billions of ISK, only thousands of $. Why would they care about ISK billionaires when its just a virtual useless game money for them, because they need $.
Also, these items will become cheaper in game and thats a great news for those who will pay ISK for them now.
Think about all those poor souls without much time, slaving long hours in office. To buy themselves a new set of clothes in game for a dollar.
Amen to that. Yall havent seen my budget Dota 2 skins for under 5$ Most expensive skin I got only is like $1.30 USD. People here spending 20-50$ to get skins here. To each their own ofc.
Many of us like skins and this really just comes down to another pod skin. From the limited replies here it seems that many people don’t mind getting a nice skin with a history behind it. 10-20 years later they will probably do it again. I just can’t get angry over this. I am too young in EVE tbh.
Genolution coming back around again!? Where? Me buy.
Am I the only one glad to have another chance to be able to get these things?
If you look into other games and understand the theory of uniqueness vs abundance you will realize that the fact you can buy these at any moment with volatile ISK means it is not rare, it’s expensive, which is different; a sale like this is actually lowering the value, not the rareness.
If you would have a game where rare things like this would unlock only with achievements or similar systems, you would be either complaining the achievement is almost impossible or too easy, not the item gave by the achieve; this sale simplifies things like that, not the items themselves.
