Came expecting a thread about Pool Sticks.



Leaving disappointed. Was hoping for advice on chalking up my tip.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

It'd be nice to be able to train multiple queues at a loss. Like, two queues running at half speed, or three running at a third speed, etc.

Hell, ideally, you have up to N active queues, and your training time for each queue is 1/N. Have these queues be expandable (and longer than 24 hours).

No. This is a s**tty idea and must never happen in EVE. Microtransactions and pay-to-win crap are for the birds. Dual-training for alts on one account was a smart business move on CCP's part, and honestly, should have been done long ago. But OP's idea is stupid. It fosters an environment where you are essentially set up to do more with less, just because you are willing to pony up more cash than everyone else.
Since SP is the only actual factor in being "better" than anyone else, in this game (though, tbh, tactics make up for a lot of other factors), anything that gains you SP in trade for money, is wrong.

Part of the allure of EVE is how much time you have to invest. Part of what makes certain people better at this game is that they understand how to plan ahead, and set themselves up for success. That must ALWAYS be a key component in this game.

That moment when you realize the crazy lady with all the cats was right...
