Afternoon Space Friends,

Another quick post here to let you know of a change Five-0 have ready for testing on Singularity.

When Scylla is released, the default CSPA charge for newly created characters will default to 0 ISK instead of 2950 ISK.

For any existing characters that have their CSPA charge still at the default of 2950 ISK, the charge will also be changed to 0 ISK. Characters that have chosen to set their charge to any other value will be unaffected. All characters can still configure this setting as normal (via the Settings option in the Mail window).

In general, we want to be enabling social interaction in EVE rather than blocking it. The anti-spam value of this feature did not outweigh the downsides of requiring players (especially new players) to pay in order to talk to each other. Most experienced players already change their CSPA charge to 0, so we do not expect this change to negatively affect a large number of players.

As always we're looking for feedback (in this thread) and reports on any issues found (using the in-game bug reporting tool) with this change.

Thanks in advance!

Yay!

Now all we need the CSPA charge to actually go into people's wallets instead of into the void. (And remove the upper limit.)

Also: the CSPA charge should only be taken when the conversation is accepted, not when the request is made.

@CSM: Stop slacking on the forums and validade the damn devblog!! Big smile

Given the number of people telling everyone to set the CSPA at 0, this is definitely a good change. I just hope it doesn't comes with an increase in the number of spam bots.

Not that much of a creative way to scam people, or is it? But that's what this would be used for the minute TQ is live after patch deployment.

If the isk goes to the player then the game is paying/incentivising people to put up a communication block. If you don't have a CSPA charge then you are earning less money than you could be and playing sub-optimally. Having the money go to the player would be an unmitigated disaster and would harm the game. The current system of the money disappearing out of the game is the only reasonable approach for this feature.

Thanks for this change.
