Question is, what to train! So many skills! :scream:

(LordOdysseus) #4

Time to train Caldari Frigate to 5.

(Old Pervert) #5

Lol, active player count should be interesting this weekend.

EVE doing dailies

Watch the boat go down bois :joy::joy: :popcorn:

(Mizhara Del'thul) #7

Dailies. Called it. Eve just went tits over arse down the drain.

(Old Pervert) #8

I mean… all you need to do is log in. If this is Eve’s version of grinding, I’ll take it.

That said… I do wonder what’s going on. They’re throwing SP around, and it makes me wonder what the motivation might be. Sounds a bit desperate to me.

Memo from PA: we need to see proof that changes being made improve server population ASAP.

CCP: Anouncing Double Training Weekend!

Press release on the 20th “Record Player Logins!”

Wait, no, I know how this goes. Most people will only get the message after the event has ended.

(Dom Arkaral) #11

It’s clear that the playerbase is dropping and dropping
They’re just trying to get normies into the game with these whilst alienating the older players

(Old Pervert) #12

I’m not sure about the second part, it doesn’t really alienate anyone when everyone gets it. Most vets I play with would far rather shoot at a dude in a T2 hull than a dude who spent less on his fit than they spent on ammo.

(df Okaski) #14

cool, but why?

(Mac-Gregor) #15

You guys cant read? Active players number wont go up. They will just login, claim SP and go do they job.

It looks like new owners are starting to put hands on eve. Waiting for first p2w items.

My magic crystal ball is telling me that Skill Injector prices are going to fall.

Inb4 Mario-styled invincibility star that provides 24h safety for only 20 plex

(Spyke Austrene) #18

To be honest, for me, as a new player, it’s hard to understand all this whining about free skillpoints.

You know, MMPORPG where playing skill (fitting, making the right character skill template…), instead of grinded skills matter, and those were always the games which i enjoyed most.

Ultima Online for example.

What I want to say is, don’t want to spend years training my character, because otherwise i will lose to any vet with all 5 piloting skills.

I want to spend my time rather in understanding the game mechanics, using them to get good chars and fitting ships right for the jobs they do… fleet doctrines, coop-patterns and so on

(Francis McLean) #19

this is very poorly worded, the way that you’ve posted it it could be read as if you get 2x the speed training AND the 100k SP gift

(Dom Arkaral) #20

Skillpoints are irrelevant a lot of the time lol
I’ve seen 1 day old toons kill 10+ years toons

Knowledge is key in Eve
