Skill injectors are what brought me back to the game.
I hated being a late arrival, having to fly ships with subpar skills whilst the people in my alliance (as well as many of the people I was shooting at) did not have subpar skills. When I saw injectors were a thing via Eve marketing material, I said ■■■■ yea and subbed up. Then I shoved some plex on the market and used it to buy a dozen injectors. Instantly I was caught up to people who’d played for a LOT longer than I.
You may call them “cheat sticks”, I call them “content generators”. I know I’m not the only pilot that it brought back to the game.
If it’s pushing you out because you hate that I am able to fly a ship as well as you in half the time, that sounds more like a personal problem. If it’s not pushing you out, what’s the problem?
