As someone who can’t go into a casino and can’t buy lottery tickets of any sort, I am absolutely disgusted at CCP for putting this sort of things into a game I love and have been playing for more years than I care to count. I’ve had to completely step away from this game due to this mechanic as I find myself constantly spending more and more isk on it. To date around 70b. At the point I was about to buy plex to continue I realized how bad it actually was. I know that this is a personal problem for me, but for CCP to clearly be taking advantage of people like my self is ■■■■■■■ disgusting. I’m currently weighing the options of cancelling my 12 accounts for good as that more I think about it, the more I’m finding it hard to justify giving my money to such predatory behavior.
I know there are trolls that will say undocking is a gamble, shooting your guns is a gamble, etc… but those who are a bit more adult than that will understand what I’m saying. Shame on you CCP. Shame on each and every one of you.
You realize that there isn’t a modern game company out there that doesn’t psychologically abuse the players, right? In EVE it’s not just mutaplasmic gambling, CCP is doing it all over the place. In the launcher, on their website, in their ads and in the game. In devblogs and in interviews.
Mutaplasmic gambling is just a tiny part of this.
Not saying you’re wrong, btw.
Also not saying you’re a victim either, because you’re not.
Although the “cancelling my 12 accounts” did give me another square for forum whiners bingo. Wait, isn’t bingo some sort of gambling; it this another attempt by the patriarchy to get me addicted to gambling?
A tip: Hunt them. Hunt these muppets who run abyssal sites and kill them mercilessly whenever you find them. On their traces when they come back from their LSD trip. Kill them with utmost prejudice. Make them feel terrible and make them see Abyss space as a waste of time littered with losses and no gains. You have 12 chars, you can stomp them into the ground.
If they do it in high sec in an unwardecable corp, gank them. If they do it in low sec, welp high alpha, high DPS ships into them to avoid the cyno menace. Make these people feel like the worthless muppets who they are. Don’t unsub. Make these people unsub.
Meh, child hood gambling addiction is soon going to be the miss-sold PPI of the future.
Are you a gambling addict? Did you play Eve Online or (other generic loot box game) as a minor between 2016 to 2019 then you may have a claim worth 10,000’s of EUR, £ or $, take our free assessment today. We’ve got loads of sleaze balls in cheap suits to file claims today against a Korean megacorp & Icelandic/Ruskie gangster that no small claims judge will give a rats ass about.
There are gambling help lines and mental health services which may be able to help you if you feel like you have a gambling problem. Wishing you the best and with all sincerity.
I actually have dealt with this which is why I no longer go to casinos and such. It’s also why I don’t play games with loot boxes. The fact that people here are assuming I’m a teenager or close to that is amusing as I’m in my 40s. I dealt with gambling when I got out of the Army before most of them were probably out of diapers.
The assumption that I don’t have friends because I play this game with multiple accounts just proves my point of the childish responses that I figured I would get to this. I still hold hope that there are actual adults that play this game as well as the immature trolls that are joining on in this. However, it seems to be the common theme of a lot of Eve players to mock people on the forums rather than have serious discussions. It says a lot about them as humans and their lack of a moral compass in life.

It might have something to do with your OP and the way you wrote it as if you can’t buy lotto and enter casino due to being a minor.
For all the bad I’ve witnessed here in Eve, I’ve also found a lot of good caring and exceptional people - as in real life. I’ve never struggled with a gambling issue but for over a decade of my life I was actively addicted to opioids and was an IV user - meaning I do understand the addiction part and know how quickly others can be to judge and cast the first stones without even knowing where they are aiming if you get my metaphor.
As to the childish people, mocking, and shite comments - hey atleast you know who to separate yourself from as unhealthy people.
