I got an email inviting me to come back to Eve and spend ~ $43 USD for 1.6 million skillpoints. Back in the 2014 - 2018ish days, I was bagging roughly 2 million SP / month. And my sub was, what, about $11 / month if you bought 12 mos at a time?
Have the new owners of CCP overhauled the Skill Point system / rate-of-SP-gain so much that 1.6 million SP is super hard to come by? 'Cuz like, for less than $10 and waiting a few weeks, I could get 2 million SP. How do I view this email as anything but a terrible, ridiculous offer?
Regardless, my youngest kid is a BIT older. Thinking about coming back for a couple of months - run some missions, see if L4 blitzing is still a solid source of income, hop into Eve U. and answer some question, etc.
Is my Golem w/ maxed skills still an L4 smash-everything ship?
Also, one of the reasons I left was that I had grown really fond of the Cerebral Accelerator events (Well, most of them, where parts and materials were easy to come by, as well as it being easy to find sites). From what little I’ve heard / read, it sounds like ways to get more SP faster-than-training these days are a bit more… gimicky? Have they resurrected special holiday events that include SP accelerators? Are SKINS still constantly being introduced? (I used to try and collect them, but then the allure kind of wore off - more and more just kept coming out - it was ridiculous.)
Anyways - assume I played in 2007, 2010, and 2014-2018/19-ish. What’s same ole’, what’s new and exciting?
Hope all of you I knew well are safe and healthy!
