Lol exactly my thought . Very sad

Not necessarily... for somewhere in the neighborhood of, what, $30,000?, I could simply buy the rest of the skillpoints. I'd also have to negotiate a reasonable price to purchase the Black Market Trade skill, to ensure that no one with said skill topped me with the same investment. So don't count me out yet!


You better be ready to pay that price because you are no longer NR 1 , which is super sad in my opinion....

My original comment was made, of course, tongue-in-cheek, but the estimate ended up being high. The actual cost would be closer to $10,000 based on actual Skill Extractor pricing.

In reality, I have the means to get there with current in-game assets, but I'd have a hell of a lot of liquidating of various investments to get it done. The real question is: is it really worth that much ISK?


The only true value is the Goal you set yourself.
Others will always remember the ones, that put in the most effort & did it with style.

If time is spent doing something you enjoy, & you spent 10years getting to that goal. The reward is the memory of such deeds not the goal.

EVEBoard ...Just over 60million skill points, each skill was chosen for a reason. I closed my eyes & clicked another skill to train... "BINGO...!!!" ... "This time i got something usefull"

Great thoughts, guys, thanks, but thoughts for the annals of history.

An esteemed colleague said to me just yesterday: "Doc, it's the dawn of a new era in skills... adapt or die!"

Heh, perhaps CCP is faced with the same notion in the direction it must take with the game...

Wise words, dying is not an option. Time for a new set of goals and new course of action!

I can see skill injectors going into a fierce price war as more and more of them are on the market and compete with each other, but I got no use for them as most of the skills I wanted maxed out are already done.....Hitting 270 million SP and done the natural way....P



Skill injectors in game = using steroids in real life.....Lol

And thus ends the Reign of Towaoc as a 3 day old character buys himself to Maximum Availlable SP.

Any one care to work out how much real life $$$ that cost him?

Congratulations CCP, Enjoy the burst of new income while it lasts. Once the novelty wares off it will be time to find other ways to milk the cows till they bleed.

Dr Caymus im playing since 2004/04 and in my eyes you still are the reigning SP champ, you made it that far oldschool style, not like the wannabees, buying themselves into it, so sir you have my respect.

Myself i have 236m SP, and i worked hard to achieve that, nevertheless all undone now with some people playing with their credit card.

The true essence of this game is lost, im gonna have a hard time staying around trying to convince myself to keep playing, not sure if i can hold on till the summer.

Any other sci fi mmos recommended ? :)

He'll soon have a 14 million + sp pool to play with, for any new skills that arrive and this guy also had fun.

I feel for you. I was using my main here to complete individual skill categories. I'll definitely keep plugging on that, but I don't think it is going to be quite the obsession that it was for me prior to skill injections. In fact, I may actually buy some injectors with my idle ISK, just to speed some of the lower skills along.

2 times 20m SP = 40m
x 4 = 80m SP
x 5 = 100m SP
x 10 = 200m SP
x 20 = 400m SP
x 22 = 440m SP

I'm at 185m sp with my other (original) char a bit less, and I'll continue to pay my two subs and enjoy the game, on and off, as I have since 2008.

No amount of other players' shenanigans are going to stop me from playing. The rich & powerful have always been able to take shortcuts because we let them, and because CCP remain true to the free market principle while ever dreaming up new ways to earn r/l income.

As an older player the likes of Dr C, Chribba et al are all names whose fame (or notoriety) will never diminish, simply because they've achieved their popularity through solid effort (or plain sneakiness).

A few people jumping the skill queue is like someone jumping a British bus queue. There's some muttering, maybe a few hard stares, then everyone gets on the double decker anyway and the incident blows over given time. And those who queued in the proper manner can remain righteous.

Legal exploitation is a feature of Eve that will never go away, and although sometimes it's a bit hard to swallow, I console myself with the reminder that if Eve wasn't the unforgiving sandbox that it's always been.. well then 90% of its rich, varied and often outrageous history would never have existed.

I actually have a recurring dream where I'm trying to get home, but can't because I'm out of reagents. I had a UO account for 14 years, and lost everything when they changed their billing system (again), didn't notify me, and hence my account expired and my tower decayed (all those lost skill stones).

If the base price for the Extractor is = to 1 plex.
Source for this expectation?


It was suggested in the previous Dev Blog that the extractor would be analogous to the plex service fee in the character bazarr.
And in a lot of the feedback to that Dev Blog.

Regardless, for someone >80 mil SP it will require 7 extractors / injectors per 1m SP, so taking myself as an example. I would need a further 250 million Sp = 1,750 extractors / injectors which will likely not be cheaper than 1 bil isk each.

Thinking about it, there are probably 100's of players with more money than sense who will gladly max out their characters, be it Aurum, Plex, ISK or real life money.

As soon as that happens, sites like Eve Board will be meaningless.

Either way, I'm done.


yes there are several players I have heard of, 1 being dropped 22k in credit cards to max out, others had so much isk from numerous venues of market manipulation/scamming/isboxing/running empire have also maxed.

while people make the comparison of skills don't mean anything also don't see if you have been training those skills and know nothing has only gotten worse in having skills and still knowing nothing.

then you have the people that's been playing and building the isk and spent it that know how to play now have an advantage.

but yes the number of people being MAX trained is increasing if not them just maxing the combat skills they want to go out and pvp with
