I heard that the 10hour heros are basically Insta-heros now.
You can create a brand new alt, get a remote repper and awox like a boss right away now.

Even cata gank alts are basically instant so dont have to pause training on main to try ganking!

I think 1m-1.5m would be better for them this will allow them to get some basic skills and jump into whatever field they are looking to pursue.... as really the only other starter activity atm is mining... sure you can do PVE but with the skills on week 1 you will still potentially struggle giving them abit more will be good move overall and allow people to get into the game faster.

I disagree, mining is not the only option. You can perfectly run L1 missions on week 1. You could also do distribution missions, or start on highsec PI. And once you got your first 100mill you can start trading or whatever. Or they can just buy 1 plex and skip the isk grinding step.

Hauling NPC goods is profitable out the gate for new characters too. You can start making millions in a really short time.

Why? This is stupid. Might as well bring back learning skills.

I remember starting characters that had 800k SP out of the gate. I also remember starting characters with barely a days worth of SP at creation. Been a lot of changes over the years and I see nothing wrong with CCP trying out this one.

Are the tears because the vets aren't getting something that CCP is using as an incentive to attract new players?
