    Default $55 and a new guild name can be yours!

    Sony Online Entertainment has introduced a new item into their EverQuest II Station Cash Marketplace this week, and, while we're not normally in the habit of reporting on individual microtransaction products, this one bears mentioning if only for its rather shocking price tag.

    For the princely sum of 5500 Station Cash (that's $55 USD for those of you counting at home), you can rename your guild and retain all experience gain and guild achievements since its inception. "The choosing of a guild name is a very important rite. To help ensure that your new name is considered carefully, we are introducing the potion at the price of 5500 SC. We believe this price is fair for those who do want a name change, but will also serve as a deterrent to those who might want to frivolously rename their guild every time they have a [kerfluffle] in the lands of Norrath," reads the announcement on the official EverQuest II website.

    By way of comparison, kinship name changes in Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online currently cost $12.95 USD.

    Yet another rip off from Soe.

    Its 5500 SC, that is £41.00 or 61.7682 USD.

    $55.00 is currently worth, = 36.5063 GBP

    Worse than an international Airport for exchange rates. and the worst thing is there is no charge involved, its all DATA, there is no actual real life money involved in it. i am not paying them in hard currency that they then need to change into American currency.

    Real life money? LOL .. what the fuck is real life money? Human blood sweat and tears?

    ALL Money is an artificial representation of the amount of energy/time YOU are willing to make an exchange for in return for something you want or need. Thats why they say money is the root of all evil. It's a human control/exchange device.

    Obviously changing the name of anything in the game is nothing more than some minor data alteration and they know people know this so they come up with an artificial reason of the overly high price being a "deterrent" to excessive guild name changes.

    This is the kind of greed that is going on all over the world, some people are saying the world is on the brink of economic collapse and this is just another pebble on the sandy beach of the Illusion of what money really is.

    Some people on this earth wipe their ass with 50$ bills and some could live for weeks on that amount, it's no suprize to me the predictions people are making for our future when I see stuff like this materialize. It's not just 55$ name changes on MMO's either it's a fucking greed/slavery epidemic.

    Socrates says in the Republic that people who take the sun-lit world of the senses to be good and real are living pitifully in a den of evil and ignorance. Socrates admits that few climb out of the den, or cave of ignorance, and those who do, not only have a terrible struggle to attain the heights, but when they go back down for a visit or to help other people up, they find themselves objects of scorn and ridicule.

    No, 5500SC = $55. That's fifty five American Dollars. We don't give a shit about your exchange rates.
