Hi there,

i'm pretty sure it has been asked before, but i can't seem to find it anywhere:
What happens if you don't have any destroyer/battlecruiser skills and fly a battleship or a cruiser? Will you get the racial destroyer/battlecruiser skill at III for free?


For everyone else who couldn't find the answer right away:

Except for the Navy Battleships, Destroyers and Battlecruisers (whose reimbursement is detailed in the next part) all the affected ships will still be flyable even after the change with no fancy reimbursement, provided you can fly them on Tranquility right now. This works because once a particular skill is trained, the system doesn’t care about sub-requirements anymore. Theoretical and unlikely example: you have Amarr Battleship 1 and Amarr Cruiser 3 currently trained. You are pod-killed without having a proper clone, and Amarr Cruiser 3 is reduced to 2. You will still be able to fly the Armageddon, as long as Amarr Battleship 1 is retained.

"I can't find it anywhere"

Translation: "I didn't try". It's been asked, what, two hundred times? If you don't have destroyer or battlecruiser skills you get nothing.

a favourite phrase of mine is "some people are beyond help". it's a line i often use when i'm with some one in a shop and a store assistant asks them if they can help them, it never gets old.

It's even more boggling to see people answering that they cannot be bothered to answer in the first place. Roll
