Just ONCE, I would like to try out flying EVERYTHING available in eve online.
It would be nice to have all the skills for ONE day on the test server only, and use some of those mods that I will never be able to afford on TQ.

So many features are unavailable to the majority of the playerbase due to ISK or amount of training time involved to use properly.
Try before you buy etc etc.

Every day in every way I improve my skills and get better.

That's not the purpose of the test server at all. It's there for you to test upcoming features, look for bugs and provide feedback.

And before you say you want to test some of the upper end features, one of the reasons they don't hand out all the skills is because they want you to test what you could normally use.

Just to add to the above. People who have no experience flying those ships on the TQ aren't the right people to test or get feedback about them. Furthemore poor/inexperienced pilots tend to pointlesly play around with their expensive toys just for their own amusement when given the chance. Meaning less useful testing being done in general and the things people actually fly and do on TQ the most would get the least amount of testing. It therefore makes sense to keep things as close to TQ as possible while giving special privilages only on special occasions when you need to get massive amount of testers to try out something they normally wouldn't be able to do.

unfortunately the two posts above are right but at the same time you have already missed out. There was a time not to long ago when all characters on sisi had all 5 stats and all ships (literally all ships) in eve were seeded.

I flew a Titan and several other ships I wont ever fly again or at least for a couple more years.

Best time on sisi ever hands down. to bad you missed out Cool

oh, and I had a really hard time logging on a couple times because of the number of people wanting to try the once in a lifetime all 5 characters on sisi. I still didn't get to check out all the ships I wanted to in that time but it was a h%ll of a lot of fun.

Yeah, I remember that. Everyone logged onto the test server and it descended into chaos, completely useless for getting any real testing done. CCP then realized that it was a terrible idea and resolved not to do it again.

Well you could set up an occasional "armageddon day" for mass tests, that should bring in some extra crowd for latency testings. P
Having full skills on sisi all the time would be bad I agree.

This, because of how it panned out last time.

How about a compromise then. . . . find a way to speed up skill training just on SiSi, like a +20 Attribute Implant.

It would allow people who want to test certain ships, the ability to learn the skills quickly, but not cause everyone to jump onto the server at once.

Just a thought..

Easy solution:
Participate in Mass Tests (the next one will be tonight at 20:00 EVE time).

Each mass test you'll get 2,000,000 skill points to spend on the test server, which will sum up for a specific number of events (think my maximum has been 10 or 12 million). Those aren't "all", but it's enough to try some specific ship types or specializations without having to actually train them before. Also consider most modules and ship hulls can be bought for 100 isk on the test server anyway.

the bad thing is the test are now done where there is no med bay and they love to pod kill players and you start loseing sp.
it happen to me and did not get back the points i lost at test.
loseing a level 5 skill is a mounth or more of training.
some are as much as mounth and a half.
so i can never get to build a titan with the poding and mirrors and all.
so far tho i dont lose all my points. in most cases i get most of it back.
but not all.

Become yourself RMT/botter and you'll be able to do it on TQ.

You don't need to train since you'll be able to buy whatever char you'll need for specific task.
You don't care items price since like them you'll be able to fly dozens billions ships and loose them without even see a single hole on your wallet.
And like them you'll cry because eve sucks for bittervets. Lol

The mass test system is just 3 or 4 jumps away from high sec. It's rather easy to set up a medical clone there and to return just in time. Participated in tons of mass tests and haven't been podded ever. Also think in latest mass tests podding was forbidden anyway (unless it really happens by accident, e.g. smart bombing).
