News about this for more info.

Don't spend it all in one place! Unless you consider the skill queue a place...then I guess you can spend it all in one place.

You guys are consistently hitting it out of the park! I very much love good customer service and often will pay more for it. Luckily for me, CCP knows how to and treats its customers right! Thanks!

Dear CCP.

As much as I like free SP, I think awarding compensatory SP for downtime resulting from a DDOS attack is a bad idea.

I have seen in this game an almost aspergian level "one upmanship" and for that I would not put it past some people to get the idea that they can carry out DDOS attacks more often as a means of getting more free SP.

Free SP allocated and in reserve can be a weapon you see. Having it on-hand for a situation can allow a player to adapt at the click of a button.

When a few DP or percentage of tanking is what makes the difference, it becomes an "I win" button.

For some people, if that means a KM or in the last throes of a battle, NOT being the loss, I have no doubt they will be motivated to carry out DDOS attacks to add this I WIN button to their arsenal.


If you are going to make a habit of awarding SP after DDOS attacks, please, for the sake of not having more in the future, put in a delay to the application of said SP, like a 24 hour lag between the initiation of application and the application of the effect. This would "de-weaponize" unallocated SP and hence remove the incentive to DDOS the server.


Thank you.

I'm pretty sure a majority of EVE players would refrain from this activity because, you know, it is a criminal activity. We are not talking about a EULA violation here. A DDOS attack is serious business. Far more serious business than internet spaceships.

Will you honor petitions to transfer the SP to a character on the account that is not the highest SP character?

It's already been decided that 50k SP is too low a bonus to entice DDoSers to do it for skill point compensation.

Carry on.

Yes, we will honor such requests and reallocate the SP to a character on the same account as long as the skillpoints have not been spent already. I'm afraid we can't reallocate the 50k SP to characters on other accounts, nor will we be able to move it over to a character on the same account if the SP has already been spent.

the compensation was for those of us who couldnt actually play, because they took the server offline. when people say it wasnt ccp's fault blah blah blah. ccp did take the servers offline. that was thier choice. and for that they compensated us. i fell it was too low it should have been around 100k. but meh better then nothing.

I have seen step-by-step guides that a monkey can follow for DDOS and covering ones tracks. Won't post it here though, but the information is out there.

Hmm.. I checked on both my characters last night and didn't notice an SP reimbursement. Guess I'll check again when I get home.

I received no SP either, but then my account was inactive when Tranquility went down. While I realise that only active accounts were supposed to get SP, but then, I had no way to extend my subscription with both server and the Account management website being down.

Workarounds are not bugfixes.

I got the first 50k but not the second. And I've definitely not dropped subscription....

So i get 50.000 skillpoints when someone tries to hack the server!?... is this some kind of incentive?, are you trying to get me to break the law!?

I'm a relatively respectable citizen. Multiple felon perhaps, but certainly not dangerous.
