GDC Online: Eve Online’s “highest grossing asset”

Speaking at GDC Online, Ben Cockerill, associate producer at CCP Games, detailed the highest grossing avatar asset purchased by players of MMORPG Eve Online: a monocle.

The reason? It gets you into trouble, apparently: "If you dock a ship and you're wearing a monocle, people come and fight you," Cockerill told the audience.

We knew there was a reason monocles went out of fashion.
