That game may have a place for everyone.

Honestly petree that really may be me.  If it reminds me of running my empire in the Civilization series of video games on the PC I may never be found again LOL.

Nice information, haven't really been following this game that much.  But, the more I read, the more I want to get into it. 

Seems really complex.

It sounds very promising.  We should be seeing a lot more in the next 6-8 months

The REGIS keeps telling everybody you can't buy a win. CCP knows what they are doing and won't allow something like buying weapons and gear with real money it would create a huge imbalance in the game. They want to flourish not drive themselves in the dirt.

^^ but this is what I find kinda confusing; how would ccp make money for themselves and the futher development of the game for the future? What are the incentives to actually put real money into the game and how will they keep it from turning into a "buy to win" scenerio?

Because, you will more than likely be able to buy in-game currency with cash

Buying currency isn't "buying a win", buying currency is giving CCP cash and your corp in-game cash, what you do with that in-game cash is up to you.

There won't be "MT this uber-ship", but there will be (more than likely) "MT this in-game cash and use it to buy an uber-ship on the in-game market"
