I don’t support the Standing Boosters because they take away risk and consequences from EVE. And they will turn into just another money grab afterwards.
As for the Skill Injector penalty removers: Just another trick to make people pay more money. Personally, I do not have anything to inject and I am glad I still find long trainings so that I don’t have to worry about what to train next.
And the 150k SP… Well, if you really need them. I rather want them as compensation for CCP screw ups.
Technically, however, if you really only need to login on 13 days, you can be done with this grind by the 23rd or 24th. If you want these rewards so desperately, you are going to get this crap over with as quickly as possible.
And the log ins are just fake anyway. CCP will without a doubt brag about the increased log in numbers afterwards in an event. Conveniently ignoring and hiding the fact that most of these additional log ins, if they happen at all, result in nothing more than just 10 second sessions in a station to get the stuff and then log out again. If you even have to go that far. During the last event you could just grab the rewards from the Character selection screen.
As for the forcing itself: It’s CCP. First, they forced you into structures for industry and other stuff. Now they make you a prime target for wars while protecting those who do not own a structure. Go figure. CCP has no issues with “forcing” people to do things. Although, in modern day euphemism this is probably called “encouraging” or “enticing”.
