I know how you feel.
I too am close to the 200 mill mark (the old fashion way) and somehow it doesn’t feel so special any more.
Not that I’m complaining. It has been a long journey full of many a victory. Something no one or nothing can take away from me.
I do not believe thought, in the idea that new players feel left behind i true.
When I started out, there was already players with close to 100 mill skill-points in the game and I never felt left behind. At most, it gave me something to work forward to and yeah! It was a long, tradius grind at times but so much more gratifying was the end reward.
I do feel sorry for the new folks that never get to feel the journey of progression in EvE but let’s face it. Everyone’s joy and perception of what EvE is, is different then yours and mine. Theirs can be just as good and right as ours.
As I stated in the beginning, we started out with a 100 mill SP disadvantage. People today are close to 300 mill behind and in less than 10 years 400 mill.
If a person today can fly a battleship after a month in EvE and that gives him joy, who I’m I to tell him his joy is not right and that he doesn’t feel the same joy I did when I started flying BS’s?
If he wants to use skill injectors, someone, somewhere paid CCP real money for those skills and at the end of the day, that means CCP can go on making a better game for all of us.
