One last thing here: we are making some big improvements to the UI for allocating skillpoints but I don’t have a screenshot of that for you just yet.


Many people want to clean up their skill sheets via this method. Disclaimer: I am one of them.
So, if skillpoints are reduced to zero for any given skill, will there be an option in this great new UI to


  • extract the skillbook (yay!)
  • OR 'forget' the skill itself (still ok)
  • OR are we left with a husk of level zero skills (meh)


The last option would be worst imho as it also would prevent unlearning any further requisite skill(point)s.

TLDR: CCP, please allow us to extract or forget any skills at level 0.

Today I learned there are a bunch of OCD/Autistic EVE players who need "clean" skillsheets for some reason.

Thanks for all the fish.

I feel like the only thing that's not yet for sale in this game is the player....his time and money is clearly not a problem.

Eve is about Capital ships, WiS, Boobs, PI and Isk!

Could they at least limit this in the same way skill remaps are currently? start with 2 available skill inject uses. Gain one a year, after that. Otherwise, your character's cranium explodes.

Please add a skill transformator as well.

It frees skill points of a certain skill at the same speed at which you would gain points.

This will mean that we will need to do some changes to skill training which will hopefully also allow you to inject skill books you don't have the prereqs instead of having to haul them around waiting for that prereq to finish(no promises this will be available on realease).


This is the opposite of what many people have been asking.

Save yourself the extra work on 'changes to skill training' and simply allow people to discard skills at zero.

Why not give us that option?!

With all the datamining they already do it's just a matter of time until they start selling their playerbase, too.

So I'm sure there was a dev that said at fanfest they weren't bringing in pay to win a few years ago well I think he lied!

It is now possible for people to buy isk legally by purchasing plex's with RL money which can be sold for isk and will now be able to purchase skill points as well as ships using real money.

If this isn't pay to win then I'm not sure what is.

Oh and I see the higher sp players also get screwed over again ispite possibly many years of loyal game play and large amounts of rl money handed over to ccp.

Join IAPUB in game if you want 0.0 pvp.

Was about time that the already existing "black-market" of SP gets legal and fair.

Ideas are like Seeds. I'd chop fullgrown trees to start a fire.

On the entire "cash out unwanted SP, or SP on a training alt"
The process would be:
Use ISK to buy PLEX.
Break up PLEX into AUR.
Use AUR to buy Skill extractors.
Extract the SP, making Skill injectors.
Sell the Skill injectors for ISK.

The question being: Will you end up with more ISK than you had to begin with?
My guess is Yes. If not, very few will do this process. Why do it if you will not make ISK? The only reason is if you have unused AUR laying about.

So, if very few are making Skill injectors, their price will rise until its reasonably profitable to make them. Which means it will be reasonably profitable to make them.

It's the same way with the current character bazaar. Its more profitable to use all the PLEX needed to sell and transfer a character than the base value of the PLEX.

Yes but now they can get it from both


Also the bazaar is needed to lower the number of iunregulated sails

Maybe because you paid for them.
If they would do that, people would rage that they are being ripped off of ISK, or even better, they would rage and demand recompensation.

You could already buy anything in Eve with RL money, thanks to selling PLEX on the open market, so I fail to see the problem here.

All we need are skillpoint remaps..
maybe available every 2 years +- or purchase from CCP..


+1

The dream case would be, at the cost of, say, 2 PLEX, all skillbooks get ejected to hangar, and all skillpoints go to unallocated. End of story.
