So got this idea from the giant Plex thread plus another dying MMORPG dear to my heart, Turbine’s Lord of The Rings Online.
EvE used to have major expansions, would bring major changes and tons of new features.
One of the last ones that come to mind was the one that brought us Incursions. Many others I am sure you are all aware of and hold dear to your hearts.
Lord of the Rings Online has paid expansion s too. You dont NEED to buy them, just come with major benefits and story parts and even new classes.
You can purchase the LOtR expansions with TURNBINE Points, earned via achievements completed in game. (Erirely similar to the Agency rewarding nuPLEX). You can grind out zone achievements to buy the next expansion.
Sooo, this would give everyone what everyone wants,
CCP would get more money,
player count would jump do to the free grind needes to pay for the expansion if you dont want to use money,
back to MAJOR CONTENT releases every several months,
Agency expanded to giant achievement system and more dailies,
MOST IMPORTANTLY AWESOME EXPANSION TRAILERS AGAIN.
So how do YOU envision that PAID EXPANsIONs will save CCP and EVe?
