I made a video, so check out the link below if you want to skip the wall of text.
You can rest assured that I already feel retarded making this post. But here’s the deal; CCP asked the CSM for plex sink ideas at the CSM winter summit. Thus, it’s probably safe to assume that CCP either was, or still is, looking for ways to further monetize the game. Now, before you guys grab your pitchforks, I better clarify that I am not trying to be an agent provocateur with all this. Arguments, name calling, public acts of character destruction, and non-constructive feedback don’t help fix problems or preserve what we love about the game. So, it would be nice if we could have a productive discussion.
Regardless, I made my video because if CCP were to introduce further monetization to the game, I would want it to:
Be Non-Exploitative /Consumer Friendly
Avoid Creating Balance Issues
Not Be Bad for Morale
I believe that my idea achieves this goal. However, if you have concerns over implementation, or think the entire concept is fundamentally flawed, please elaborate. It also might not be a terrible idea to submit your own ideas for plex sinks. I know we would all prefer further that no further monetization methods be implemented, but that may very well be a pipe dream. Thus, it probably isn’t a terrible idea for the playerbase to proactively influence monetization direction, instead of just rioting or quiting after a change has been made.
This pic is awesome, OP! Thanks for entertaining while talking about things!
I’m stealing this to use (with name/date changed, of course)
I don’t think player revolts like the jita riots are even possible now. The playerbase has changed and many of the players left from that time are pretty much resigned to the fate of where ccp obviously wants to go.
Remaps are bad. Attributes are bad. Inbeding it further into the game is very bad. Especially when its newbies who get punished most by the whole system who will then be told to just pony up some cash.
