Implants make the same difference no matter what level you're training at.
In percentage terms yes. In absolute terms no.
Just the same as I said before.
Implants do not provide the same absolute time benefit in going from 0 - 1 as they do to go from 4 - 5.
Before you are training to level 5, they have less value and the time taken to train cybernetics is potentially better spent elsewhere.
There is even a new player skill plan that somewhere says:
It should be noted that these lists contain a frightful mix of all kinds of skills, so the use of shortcuts such as implants and remaps can't really be applied optimally.
I totally agree with that, as I have throughout this thread. Later on, they can be applied optimally.
We clearly have different interpretations of the same statement which is fine, but going round and round the same round about is pointless.
