I am bad at pvp. For me, learning implants keep me from going out, trying to get better, and becoming content for everyone else in the game.
I am a newish player so getting SP to fly the ships I really want to fly is my number one priority. So, to maximize my SP I choose to buy +4s which are are quite expensive for my income bracket. I am also a father, so I often do not get to choose when my play session comes to an end. I often have to safe log in some random point of space and I may not be back for multiple days.
This leads to a situation where I have to choose between swapping to an empty clone, and coming to terms with the possibility I will be stuck in it for days and loosing skill training time or staying in my learning clone and not trying to get better at pvp. Most frequently, I choose the later because I do not know when I will get the chance to play again those lost skill points hurt my soul. Wearing +4s while pvping is not really an option. I am bad and will loose them at a rate that is financially unsustainable.
I find it totally acceptable that improved learning should come at a cost and I have no problem loosing ships. If learning implants did not exist and instead I could buy cerebral accelerators that persisted no matter how many times my pod was exploded, I would be out there every chance I get loosing T1 ships to you fine pilots.
TLDR: I want to be your next killmail but current mechanics/circumstances force me to choose between flying better ships and being content.
