When I’ve first heard about Ascension a few months before it got released, I talked to my buddy about how a market for Characters will eventually change into a market of Names (and maybe Looks).
Names are the only unique item a character has. Everything else can be replaced by spending ISK. It has base (or post-drainage) SP, and his only actual value is his name (and maybe the looks), because SP can be switched out at will.
And he’s not the only one doing it.
The outcome of this, as I predict it, is a market where people choose characters based on names (and looks) and order them with a pre-configured, or chosen set of skillpoints.
What do you think?
