Its great your giving old time players new content to try their hand at, and lots of choice level wise, for the long time players of Eve.
New players of eve have little to no choice, the community has pretty much very quickly discovered which ship that can do these sites, however without the correct mastery of this Amarrian ship, you are pretty much screwed in doing any high level site.
Time to finish these sites is very restricting so if your not a high level mastery of your ship your get blown up so again this is great for long time players not so much for us newer players.
For Training time for that ship is 456 days of training if I drop every other skill I have training right now and only train for that one ship.
I’m not suggesting you make these sites easier, a challenge is great.
However what does need a major overhaul is the skill training times, they are so out of date, they might have been ok back in 2004 where you didn’t have a lot of competition game wise but these days they take way to long for any player to get anywhere, with so many other great games out there that don’t need years and years of training to accomplish anything, (this is why most people drop out of the game I can’t see why you dont see this CCP)
For me personally I went Omega 4-6 months ago only have around 11 mill skill points, totally new to the game didn’t realise you need multiple accounts and 1 toon per account and train to fly just 1 ship to start off… and specialise in one thing,
I would guess that I’m not alone in this and a lot of people put skills everywhere until they learn that the skill training time is so outdated that it takes an eternity to train anything to the max which is clearly what’s needed for this new content to do top level sites.
CCP please update the Training times, get rid of redundant skills like the ones that restrict people in the number of people allowed in their group “alliance” etc, condense the training skills that duplicate each other and a lot do overlap these days and cut the training times down to something a bit more reasonable to reflect the modern times we now live in, and stop living in 2004.
I’m sure this post will get flak for the “old timers” in the game that have a gazillion skill points but they have to realise games evolve and change and get updated this game clearly needs to update its skill training time as well.
