I'll only be there at the beginning of next year...Big smile


Moar skills CCP, I don't want to train production, research, trade, mining or corp skills if you please, so the hard limit is just under 300 million SP.

Dr Caymus grats on 250 mil :)

I am still struggling to break 200 mil but will be there in less than 6 months.

I am trying to get as many skills as possible on this char so I am not skilling at optimal speed. But after so many years playing eve I do not care anymore about sp/hr :)

But on the other hand, today is my 11th birthday and also EVE's 11th birthday! :)

Going for my 11th birthday on July 29th, and I should be at or over the 200 skills at level 5 mark and 233 million SP total, with 200 million SP in lvl 5 skills alone so several marks hit at the same time...

Almost there... working on my 199th skill which will be done in 5 days, and then it's a nice and simple rank 1 skill that will take a little over 3 days to get done, so that brings it to the 28th of july, and 1 day ahead of my birthday....Big smile


Over 233 million SP.
200 million SP in lvl 5 skills,
200 skills at lvl 5.
11 years in the game.


All at the same time....Big smile

Speaking about birthdays, today's Sables.

Over 223 million SP.
208 million SP in lvl 5 skills,
269 skills at lvl 5.
11 years in the game.

Ten million skillpoints less than digitalwanderer has but a whole lot more skills. Haven't checked his skills but I take it the difference is in capital ship related skills.

Sable's Ammo Shop at Alentene V - Moon 4 - Duvolle Labs Factory. Hybrid charges, Projectile ammo, Missiles, Drones, Ships, Need'em? We have'em, at affordable prices. Pop in at our Ammo Shop in sunny Alentene.

Maxed out the entire ship command tree for combat ships, even the 4 titans, and carriers and dreads are maxed.....That took a ****ing long time for those 12 skills to max at rank 12/14/16.....Almost 2 months for each titan.

Timely post... just reached 250 million yesterday (if you include the 4 million unallocated points I'm still sitting on..)


Hope you don't mind me asking: Why just sit on those unallocated points gained over the years? What are you waiting for? Is there benefit to holding on to them like you are doing?

I personally can't wait to spend those in the rare case I get them.

Most people will get the greatest benefit by using unallocated skill points as soon as they get them in order to reach their near-term training goals more quickly.

I'm a little different in that, as an industrialist that has been around since the beginning, I have all the skills needed to do what I do day to day maxed out, and that has been so for a long time. Given that, early on in my career, my secondary goal became maximizing my total skill points. In the early days, I trained skills that matched the attributes that I was born with almost exclusively. When the remap system was implemented, I began remapping in maxed attribute pairs and training exclusively in the relevant skill group (Intelligence / Memory skills, for example) for one year at a time.

Sitting on the unallocated skill points does have a benefit, though it is a minor one. The points could be used to level up one of the few skills that have an unusual pair of attributes, like Doomsday Operation (Willpower / Intelligence) or Research Project Management (Memory / Charisma ). Or, even better, if a new skill is introduced into the game that I want, but the attributes don't match my current map, I can use unallocated points to add the new skill without having to train it at a slower rate. (This might become very useful to me over the next year, as I recently remapped to Charisma / Willpower in order to slug through the Leadership and Social skills!)

I recently used about 100,000 unallocated points for the second reason, leaving me with a current total of 3.9 million unallocated points.

I see, that makes a lot of sense. Quite wise.

I recently did a little recap of all the skills i'm interested in maxing out, and they total 270 skills in total, and my 202nd skill is about 2 days to get done, so that leaves 68 to get maxed out and they're all rank 5's and under so they'll go by pretty quick, given that I too also train all the skills I'm interested that use the same attributes, and I still have 3 remaps available.


Long story short, i'll reach that 270 skill mark in about 18 months and have nothing related to ships left over if CCP does not introduce anything by then.


Worst come to worst i'll balance out all my attributes with the last remap and get the remaining skills to lvl 4...Got no interest in spending another 5 years maxing out skills I have no use for them, and this is a ship related game above all else.

Maybe a bit premature, but after 11,5 years i'll finally hit 200m in a few days from now.....

If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all...
