You’re conveniently overlooking the underlying factor that made a big difference between buying characters from the Bazaar back then compared to buying skill packs now.
Proper planning and lot’s of time was invested to train those characters in the Bazaar. It was all done by players, not CCP. The skill packs currently being sold by CCP are nothing more than monetization of the game, subtly advertised as a P2W commodity. And that’s something CCP said would never happen.
Those skill Points are created from nowhere, they bypass the in-game market and cheapen the value of character generated SP’s, not to mention they also make a mockery of CCP’s catch phrase which is often used as a major selling point of Eve = Player Driven Market.
