I would like to see CCP allow another full 24-hour period of availability for the Cordite Blossom SKINs on the New Eden Store.
I will be up-front and honest in that I did not have time to acquire any of these SKINs via the NES, and as a result will have to contend with the market to purchase my skins. This is an obstacle that I will overcome regardless, in one way or another.
However, I am more disappointed that CCP has once again underestimated our community, and in doing so, prevented large swathes of that community from helping to donate towards a very good cause.
There are huge numbers of families across the world touched by cancer in one way or another. On a personal note, my family has seen a number of members succumb to various forms of cancer. This impact was lessened by members of our family’s community coming together and supporting those people who needed it most.
To address the passing of CCP Mankiller, the fact that I was unable to aid the family of a notable community member in a direct way, especially given the hugely relatable way in which they passed, was disappointing to me.
As a result, I am hereby petitioning CCP to open another fundraiser for CCP mankiller via the PLEX market, to allow individuals not primarily in EU timezones to provide funds to that fundraising effort. The simplest way I can see is to reintroduce the SKINS to the NES for a set period of time, hence the title of this thread. However, I would donate PLEX to any other fundraiser if CCP were to organise something to that effect. I sincerely hope CCP can take into account the large number of people who were unable to contribute to this fundraising due to timezone issues.
I don’t wish to judge CCP for their choices regarding what the funds are intended for. Helping out in any way, shape or form will be a positive action on their part. However, they could have earmarked the first 20k USD for burial expenses and donated the rest of the profits to charities of the family’s choosing. I firmly believe this is a mistake on CCP’s part through their consideration of the community, and I hope they offer the rest of the community an opportunity to contribute in some form.
ccp values and respects it playerbase. wait for the next “plex for relief” event. Than it will be a big everyone can participate. this one even said limited time, exclusive, once sold out, never to be released again…
I agree it wasnt up…went to bed …woke up saw the message and went to buy and gone…should have been a limit on one skin each of type to one account…but then players with 30 accounts wouldn’t have stopped the buyout before the rest of us could contribute
Poorly implemented poorly thought out for the majority of the players…nice gesture to passing of a valued staff member just screwed up application of the gesture.
Think your weekly meeting should be an ass kicking on thoughtlessness
I really enjoy donating my spacemoney for good causes, but this time I don’t feel like I made any difference, because the donation cap was going to be hit whether or not I bought any. I bought some for my ship, and I bought some for speculation, but I don’t feel good about it - the way I did with blaze skins, or plex4good - because I can’t say “more money went to the family because of my purchases.” They were gonna get that 20k whether or not I did anything.
So, CCPlease: re-open this, and un-cap it. Maybe use different hulls to not screw anyone who bought in on the first round as a speculation buy, I guess. Would love to see this skin for the ishtar and some t1 battleships anyway.
Yes I’m sort of on the on the same page as Dirk and Halleflux.
I bought the Blaze skins when they were posted to do some good.
I just bought PLEX just to buy the skins becuase the post wasn’t up last night.
Store is sold out and now the corporate machine gets the RMT iskies.
That’s just not right.
Even if you can’t post the skins because of the 20 thou rule ,fine, then at least CCP should provide a route to make a plex donation to square things up. It really wasn’t about the skins anyway.
