Everything is "out of thin air" as soon as you can buy with real money as many accounts as you want and grow alts you never play to sell them or sell SP. Same with PLEX for ISK.
There are casual gamers like me who won't invest more than 15€ / month for a game, either because they can't or don't wish to.
And there are people ready to invest tons of real money in order to get an edge in game. EVE has always been like that by nature : pay to win.
I don't like it, but i live my little life of small player and have fun out of it, so in my perspective, i win too without giving fortunes away.
Also, when you extract ore from asteroids who will respawn, or bounty or loot from NPCs who will respawn, it's also "out of thin air".

I just want to make sure we're all in agreement that it's okay to create SP from thin air, RE: the reward for Iceland winning the Euro football championship (go Iceland, yay football!)

OR will the Injectors be bought from the market using seized funds, in order to preserve the market instead of trampling it?

If the plan is to magick the Injectors into everyone's redeeming queue and we're okay with it, that means we've completely dropped the original reasoning that all SP will be generated by subscribed players. And I'm just curious if that has finally happened.



May I suggest giving 500k unallocated to each account instead? I guess the difference is your intent. Do you want me to have 500k SP, or do you want me to have an Injector.

I won't get more than 150k per Injector on my characters, so I would receive more benefit from 500k unallocated.

More importantly, there's the market supply to preserve. With 500k unallocated, you'd be giving us a free week of SP but we'd still have to consume an Extractor to put the free SP to market. It would be a lot more stable than a sudden flood of Injectors ready to sell.

Thanks.


Seized assets from banned accounts = trampling the market. Banned accounts are no longer part of the economy and so reinjecting their material or noncapital value back in to the game is essentially the same as handwaving stuff in.

We're not talking about deceased estates here we're talking about digital assets that functionally stop existing when the owner leaves the game. Someone quitting does not have an impact on the economy beyond the tiny vacuum they leave behind.

even if i got one injector per account i would still be in the negative for what i bought and what i actually injected. in fact i would be in the hole enough to supply another injector or two. some players have injected all the way to 500 mil sp. from start. Those alone would probably nearly cover everyone in jita right now.

So i think its safe to say that ccp will of "created" less sp than was lost since skill injectors came out with this.

Injector SP efficiency loss is a drawback to prevent us from freely remapping characters. It's not meant to be a justification for CCP spawning them at will.



There is a isk cost associated with using these. Okay assuming the "Resell" value was close to the actual value (around 450 mil) then people might do this. But the cost would still be 210 mil per 500k and that is quite expensive for a remap.

I honestly think they are doing this to give a SP drain in the game, old players who are stuck in doing what they want to do can use the extractors and keep only what they want/need... They might end up down in the 100-150 mil range (vs 200+) and new players will say to themselves "Well, The pro only has 100 mil, I have 9 million, its not so bad" I could be wrong on this.

Plus it's a huge money grab, the idea being that old pro's will buy PLEX to extract, New players will buy PLEX isk out on for bumping accounts with injectors.

I still don't object, It is a gift from CCP to everyone - thus it doesn't really give any huge advantage to one person over another. Resllers and SP Farmers will get hit by this, but they are not part of the core market on either side so CCP probably doesn't give that much consideration.

more likely than not this woudl increase demand for SP injectors as people like me who have never bothred with them become addicted and begin liquidating out assets to buy more.

Well, the question of whether we get a free gift or not is moot since it'll happen regardless of what we say. When getting free gifts from CCP, those gifts should be equally beneficial to all characters.

As for a choice of getting a Skill Injector or straight 500k skillpoints, I'll take the SP's every time.

Why, because my character has over 150 mill SP's and I'll just get ripped off if I use an Injector compared to somebody who only has 1 mill SP's.

yeah but they have ice and cold weather so it would have to be a warm weather sport where you wouldn't expect them to field a team like

football?

They have these covered hall football fields. They have seen that in Norway and build some in Iceland.

Actually, I'm a staunch supporter of CCP giving nobody anything at all for server problems. As per the EVE Online EULA:

TL;DR - CCP owe you nothing if **** happens, and at the end of the day, as soon as they open 'pandora's box', so to speak, there's no putting it back. Now, typically, everyone EXPECTS something to be given to them when **** goes wrong. In simpler terms, it breeds entitlement, where there is no entitlement to be had.

Also, hullo everyone. I'm back. Twisted

It's not that they're saying "this free stuff isn't what I wanted", it's that they're saying it shouldn't be free or given out at all.

If CCP said "we'll give every account a titan" would you be in threads like this saying "lol people complaining about free stuff"? Probably not. Or maybe you would, idk. But you'd draw the line somewhere.

And yeah I've said before that CCP giving out SP for minor server downtimes is dumb and only increases entitlement.
