    It may be circular to some. But to me the case still needs to be made as to WHY NOT. FD not chiming in is intentional most likely because they can't say they never will sell ships. We've established people do not want to give them anymore money for anything useful (only for useless cosmetics). They've stated they'll ragequit if ships are sold. They don't want to anger the customers. That being said the people who would buy the ships would outweight the loss of customers who are not paying anymore anyway. It just makes good business sense for them to get this game to 10 years to sell something "else".

    They can sell ships - but you can't sell ships. Remember the old days people would sell items in MMO to other people for real cash. You could buy gold etc too. Ships special ships should not be transferrable.

    I'm against selling ships. If they made a custom ship with pretty much all the same modules, some cosmetics included without any real engineering to it (still requires grinding and rolling of the dice) of an anaconda... you wouldn't buy it? Maybe add one extra utility slot, one less turret. Wow maybe explorers out there may want to buy it? Would that be considered pay to win? No I already own an anaconda but I'd pay $50 for this custom ship I could use for expanded exploration... Does that give me any sort of edge against other people? There are bigger jump ranges there are better ships suited to it... why would you even care if someone else had one?

    Both games are very successful financially. I just want to bring that income to FD and I want to give them money. I want them to come up with something that works as well as some of the other games. Like I said I was dead set against it. But then I saw it could work. I bought a ship and I enjoyed it. It was a little expensive but it also included some in game currency to also help with other stuff so it was not a total loss if I didn't like the ship. So it works.

    I'll start with the 2 I already mentioned: Warframe - (Frames which are basically like suits with different abilities you still need to level and modify to death) World of Warships - they perfectly balanced everything so it is fun no matter what your playstyle is. Most ships cannot be bought only special ones. No I won't bring SC into this as I don't agree with what they are doing there at all.

    What is the fundamental underlying issue people are having with purchasing ships? I'm still trying to determine a factual game breaking reason why. I can't find one. Nobody has presented any evidence that it would destroy the game. What it does is identify the underlying issue which is not the sale of ships but some people's perceptions of what OTHER people buying ships would be and their consequences. This is a legitimate argument. We basically have people admitting they'll ragequit because other people spent money on a ship to fly around a galaxy where you rarely bump into anyone else unless you want to. Where you'd still get your butt kicked because your ship isn't engineered for combat and will still take another 50 hours to get it kitted the way you like. Then you need to spend even more time learning your ins and outs of your new ship. You may not even like it and LOSE MONEY! 1) I was against ship buying. 2) Now I am not and it DOES WORK on other platforms without harming the game at...

    How would working for earned REAL MONEY so I an enjoy a ship without spending 50 hours gameplay doing mundane repetitive stuff? Then I can do it again to engineer the ship again. This game is NOT about ships. Its about doing whatever you want, trading, mining, fighting, participating in CG's, exploring whatever I want. Spending my money on what I want is something I can do, and quite frankly you don't have a say in it. That is the underlying issue here. Its a psychology of people not wanting other people to have fun. You can't have free ice cream!! lol You guys don't even want someone else to PAY for the ice cream!

    So no you wouldn't stop playing? I'm asking people if you'd quit if they started selling ships. How many of you would QUIT? Not many..

    This is ok - many of you would not purchase ships. Let me ask you this then. Would you stop playing the game if FD sold ships that also could be earned by credits - but included kits / cosmetics with it? So you would stop playing the game simply because other people would be able to buy nice looking ships that still would require engineering etc. You would be against what other people are spending their money on?

    Pure speculation. People play the game for a wide variety of reasons. Since the game is pretty meaningless without a point, a content end or end of stories, end of battles... it can be fun for many people just flying around in a ship, doing whatever they want. I would spend money buying a custom ship but I 'd still need to grind to get the materials to engineer it. I'd still need to earn money. I'd still need to FLY IT to do the fun things in the game. So you are trying to say the GOAL and the WIN of the game is to grind your way to ships?

    How would a choice of buying or earning a ship "being forced"? When there are also a selection of other similar ships? If we see 100 ships in the game who cares. ^This... buying a ship is not paying to win. Even then - if I were "winning" solo in the privacy of my own home enjoying the game - why would others care about that? What this is all about is people wanting to control other people's experiences. All I want is a choice...
