by shadowsoze (#36547384) Attached to: Eve Online and $60 microtransactions?
But can't you see they gave everyone MONOCLES! What other game has $80 MONOCLES?!?!? Seriously though, i love EVE, i've been playing since 2008. I'm seriously on the brink of hitting unsub...if it weren't for the slight bit of hope that CCP will redeem themselves, i would have quit after how they didn't listen to the playerbase on the 0.0 anom nerf.

+ - Leaked file shows EVE Online microtransaction plan->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In the wake of controversy surrounding EVE Online's new microtransaction store and its not-so-micro prices, a document has surfaced that has raised more than a few eyebrows in the EVE community. The PDF is reported to be a copy of CCP's internal company newsletter Fearless. Ex-CCP employee and current CSM member Seleene was able to verify that the company does circulate an internal newsletter by that name and that the style is very similar to the leaked document."

BeanBagKing (1151733) writes "CCP Games, who develops the popular MMO Eve Online seems to have stirred several hornets nests at once during a major expansion. First was their idea of micro transactions, on item costing $60 by itself. Second was a leaked memo (linked below) detailing future plans for more micro transactions, ones that would give players a clear advantage. This has players on the forums outraged, there is even a forum post dedicated to articles from gaming magazines, sites, and blogs that show CCP in a bad light.
