So CCP Zulu has released another devblog, in which some answers, and an apology, are given.
My thoughts of Vanity Items
I think the problem with the price of vanity items, is one of sticker shock; that we were expecting much lower prices, that have eventuated. I know my own initial reactions were such. However on taking the time to think it though, and applying some economic theory; I can possibly see why they have done what they have done.
This however is going to take a bit to write up, so I will come back to that in a separate blog post.
My thoughts on Non-Vanity Items
'...there are no and never have been plans to sell "gold ammo" for Aurum...'.
Finally the words we have all been waiting to see... I am admittedly however one in the corner of thinking that "Gold ammo" is being used here as a catch-all for all non-vanity MT items.
Some are concerned that this is just means no Gold ammo, and it still allows for anything else, but I think that is slightly churlish.
For me, the biggest pain I have felt over the last few days, is the destruction of trust. CCP needs to sincerely make a massive effort to regain the trust of the community, and this urgent summit is a good start.
On one condition..... Don't NDA the CSM.
The general Eve populace need to have the CSM come back and be able to give us enough information to allay all of our concerns.
For now, my finger is no longer hovering above the "desub" button, but I'm still not comfortable with the present situation.
Help us CCP, we want to be able to trust you again.
PS. World of Tanks is fun, and worthwhile bit of fun to try.
