I’m an unexcitable pod person.
I noticed that CCP has a special offer on the launcher…
CCP say they are happy to offer this special. Suggesting that those experiencing summer might want to pick up some Omega subscription time. Which would preclude those of us in Australia enjoying a dry and cold winter, but it’s easy for marketing departments to forget that the whole world doesn’t live in the USA sometimes.
The offer is 15% for 3 months, available until 26 June (probably USA time).
This offer doesn’t tempt me. It may be one of the best offers in the virtual universe, but I wonder sometimes if offers like this are worth it. If you don’t generate much interest then the word “special” becomes invisible to players. Which is the opposite intent of having something be special.
Me, I don’t really like paying full tote odds. I especially don’t like paying US prices for EVE with Australian dollars, it’s a horrendous markup.
Which is why I like specials, real ones, it gets the price of EVE down to a competitive level with other games. In Australia anyhow.
I’d like specials to be 50% or in that area, with bonuses for long term purchases or other packages like Galaxy or others (except SKINS, I have zero interest in them). I’d probably pay for a little space hut somewhere with real dollars too, something between an Orca and a Astrahus.
That would make me feel special, and I would go get my wallet more often.
