heres a real question I have....do our skills keep training while the system is down? or am I missing out on time of traning?


I want my skills for using a provi to finish!!! D=




Skills are most likely the absolute easiest thing to handle when it comes to a downtime like this. Skill information very rarely actually changes, so it's really simple to extrapolate and apply your skills even with the server off.


All you do is take the number of hours since the server went down, multiply it by the SP per hour of your current attributes, then apply them as needed to your skill queue when it comes up.

The server doesn't have to be online, for the SP to accumulate. IIRC, SP isn't even a real-time calculated figure. It only actually "updates" when you change something clientside involving skills, or a skill completes.

7.2 CAN I AVOID PVP COMPLETELY? No; there are no systems or locations in New Eden where PvP may be completely avoided. --Eve New Player Guide

Chill out, have a beer / do whatever calms you.

In cases of unexpected DTs of old we were compensated with game time.

Now, back to trying to finish my huge backlog of games that aren't eve.

I am actually agree with this statement. It has been six hours of them working on it. I understand sometimes things get ******, I get it. I understand they are trying to bring more to the game, I understand that as well... The issue is that it has been six hours without so much as a "Hey, yeah... We ****** up... Here is something to quell your rioting in the forums."

Not like it is all that hard to give us all something to cover at least 2 hours of the down time...


You think that rewarding the players for rioting on the forums is a good idea
You do realize that these rioting player base is the tiniest (but noisiest) fraction of the actual player base

Caught in a down time, no escape from reality.

Open your eyes, look to the devs and see.
They're just some poor guys, don't need no sympathy.
Because the server's up, server's down.
(Server's up, server's down)
Anyway the devs go, doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Fozzie, just killed the game.
Put an update to its head,
Pulled the trigger, now it's dead.
Fozzie, sov had just begun,
but now updates take all day.

Fozzie, ooh,
didn't mean to make Eve die.
If it's not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on, as if you're going to get free isk.



its not a biscuit - this is hip hop you nit wit - learn to deal - or step back and kneel - you might find you can feel!
Blag the POS - scrape the ISK - paw at some free SP? not me im free. puffing on a splif - take a long Bio and puff on a splif it'll be back in a bit - until then sont talk s**t :P


Please tell me you know what song he was trying to imitate.... FYI it was nothing to with rap or hip hop.



but this is hip hop you nit wit :)


Isk won't come, just when you want it.
You see I mine son, but I'll get it on.
You wanna gank then step up and we'll get it on.

With a pod full of nothing, meanwhile I'll be drilin
On a fat rock, Spod rocks?, you don't know the half.
Tryin' to gank ships man, please don't make me laugh.
These miner's eyes are smilin, I'm buckwildin'.
The laser chain is pumpin, start jumpin.
Lock it, mine it, jet can haul it.


Oh give me a clone
Of my own flesh and bone
With the Y chromosome changed to X
And when she is grown
My very own clone
Will be of the opposite sex!

Clone, clone of my own,
With the Y chromosome changed to X
And when she is grown,
Since her mind is my own
She'll be thinking of nothing but sex!

Dear ccp,

if a fault suddenly appears it's not the problem of the software but a corruption of data. So a fix in the software is not a fix but a work around. Unless there was a software update on downtime which would mean a simple rollback to the previous version.

My bet is on data corruption which you should have queries for to find out.

Take a drink every time Christo posts this. Also, guessing game, how many times will they have posted that before the servers are back up and running?
