Yet again CCP tries/wants to sell Skill Points as a part of a package in order to normalize the idea of selling Skill Points directly. Skill Points are an invaluable part of the EVE skill ecosystem and should be treated as such. Not as a quick way to get some cash and to make Skill Points an even more of a casual thing to be thrown around and sold for real money.
Don’t quote me on this as I can’t find the exact quote. But I could swear when Skill Injectors and Extractors were introduced, CCP stated the following. “We will never sell Skill Points”.
Even recently as March 2021 (Three months ago) CCP Rattati said on a stream the following quote.
“We definitely don’t want to sell skill points” CCP Rattati, EVE Online Director of Product (OZ_EVE 2021).
Here is a timestamped section of said interview so you may even hear it yourself if you so wish.
The Ancient Gaming Noob blog also wrote a whole article about this exact same thing and even stated that right after the interview in the above video, CCP began selling over 1.6 million Skill Points as a product itself.
If you don’t like this then please, let CCP hear your voice. Lets stop Skill Points being sold for money.
