Micro transactions spark mass riots on Eve Online

Begossi Begossi writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Begossi (652163) writes "Massive riots are taking place on several star systems in the persistent universe of Eve Online (http://www.eveonline.com/), with players of the famous sci-fi MMO protest the introduction of micro-transactions to the game. A leaked internal memo from the icelandic game publisher, CCP, indicates that micro-transactions for vanity items is only the beginning: the paper claims that competitive player-versus-player advantages (advanced ships, instant ammunition, etc) will eventually be achievable with real money. Riots are currently taking place in several trade hubs and capital systems, such as Jita and Amarr, where players are pilling up to force the servers to crash, simply shooting at several historic landmarks, and other symbolic gestures such as renaming ships as "No MT for EVE" in protest."
