CCP Responds to Leaked Internal Newsletter

Yesterday an internal CCP newsletter called “Fearless” was leaked onto the internet that rocked the Eve Online universe.  Within the newsletter it stated information about the new Noble Exchange virtual store, which CCP had stated up until this point would only be for cosmetic or vanity items. However the newsletter stated “Not all virtual purchases [in EVE Online] will focus on customization: some will simply be new items, ammunition, ships, etc. that can be purchased outright.” It also listed some outrageous prices for some of these vanity items.

CCP has now responded to players concerns, however avoided the big question of whether or not non-vanity items would be introduced to the store.  The response has simply stated that the leaked newsletter was indeed called Fearless and meant to bring about discussion, and some general information about the price points of the items that will be available in the Noble Exchange.

Fearless is one of our company values. It‘s also the name of an internal newsletter that has been designed and developed specifically to catalyze discussions on controversial topics.

We will gradually introduce items at other price points, definitely lower and probably higher than what‘s in the store today.

CCP made no mention of whether or not they will eventually introduce non-vanity items to the store.  The fact that no mention was made only suggests that they do intent to introduce such items and are trying give it some time before making it official. After all there are currently players protesting in both the Eve Online forums and in-game.

We’ll keep you posted as new information is announced.

    Understatement. EvE players don’t mind getting shafted by CCP every now and then, but lied to is a bit different. Let it burn.
