Pay to win hasn't been brought up by anyone yet? Must be a slow day.

No SP transfers ever.

Also, wrong forum.

As much as I like the idea, it won't happen. EVE is a game based on training time and "time" is how CCP makes its money.

Actually to be fair he's paid for the training time for both characters, that's indisputable. The idea is interesting; it seems a bit bloody stupid but I can't exactly think why it's a bit bloody stupid.

If the suggestion was to pay plex to have 2 simultaneous skill queues on your character how would you feel about it? It's basically the same effect in the end.

CCP still get their money. Who am I to say otherwise?

If you merge two character, will their offspring get all the SP?

An Eve character is more than the sum of his skill points.

In Eve, more than any other MMO, your reputation can be as important as your skill set.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

It is not "pay2win" game.

You cannot buy training.

And it is not going to happen.

Sell both characters and buy one character that has both sets of skills.

The problem I have with buying characters is that you cant change the name. If that could be done, they would sell more IMO.

(Just include previous names in the history like employment)

Can't support that unless there is an option for players to show all original names in overview/local, which would make renaming the character a bit pointless.

The reason that would be needed has to do with scouting out enemies. When a player enters local or grid I want to know who he is, not have to check his bio. If my fleet of 15 jumps to fight another fleet of 15, players whom we have fought in the past, it is important we know who is who. Maybe we don't like them and want to blap the FC, without searching through a bunch of bio to figure out who he is.

This idea is terribad.

Pretty much, this is why it will never happen.

You could just remap another character for say... all the leadership (charisma) skills, pay a few months of PLEX time, and voila, you have "bought" ~4-5mil SP. This could be done to 2 characters on each account, to be merged into the third.

It's paying for power, something CCP does not want.

I have the opposite problem.

I want to extract the miner and mining skills from myself.

As long as you get nothing in return for doing so and you can't remove a skill that is a prerequisite for something else you already have trained/injected I don't really see any problems with just deleting SP from your toon.

3/10 semi-clever stealth pay-for-SP (which I'm not all that opposed to just because of all the Tippia tears it generates)

Give me a moment, going through the locked threads...

K, just this week ... and its not long yet °°

Should say enough, and stop with your sneak Skill buybackremovalcleansing.

Adding the one I copied this from:

And for those who can't see or won't read stickies or consider search functions:


---> Skill buybackremovalcleansing .. each word is a link°°

Now seriously, cut it.


Edit: Not bumping , if you want to get rid of an alt, sell it, or sell both and buy another more fitting one. Otherwise, see above.

Sorry guys I am not as underhanded and sneaky as you all are or as you all expect this to be...........all I asked is since I have been paying for my alts training time if I could merge those skills over, nothing more, nothing less.

It's interesting, but... could be made to link up with jump clones somehow? If you biomass a character, you have the option to make it into a jump clone. When your other character jumps to it, they get the use of the skill points while there. If they clone jump away, they lose the use of those skillpoints. So for each character you biomass, you could have a specialized jump clone somewhere.

Then it could be balanced by only allowing use of that jump clone for 24 hours per week, or it permanently degrades after six months, or every time it gets podded, or you clone jump away from it, it loses its highest skill, like if you get podded without an up to date medical clone or lose tech three ship.

And it's creepy...

This sounds like a loophole to get more than 3k SP/hr.

While may main trains core skills and the bare minimum of everything else, I could create an alt char to train missiles. Another for guns. One char to train trading and PI skills. One to train mining and reprocessing skills. One for science. One for armour and shield. One for e-war. One for Navigation. One for each race of space ship command. One for drones. One for social. One for leadership.

I never have to remap and eventually merge all these chars together. In less than a year i'd have over 200million SP.
