It's really funny how much this "protest" failed before it started.

I, like many others, support CCP's move.

I fully support this new system of skill trading. It has multiple benefits, and no drawbacks that I can think of.

1. It gives characters more flexibility

2. Gives new players easier access to skill points.

The only people who complain are the ones who won't let go of their e-peens, because they don't want new players to advance too quickly.

Or maybe some people complain because they make their ISK by training / trading characters on the Character Bazaar, and they're worried that their income will be affected negatively because now everyone can see the exact market price that Skill Points are trading at.

Just like when officer / navy equipment went from strictly contract trading to market window trading. Maybe they're afraid this new system will make Skill Point market data too transparent, thus decreasing their income. Whether it happens or not, it's for the greater good.

I've never seen CCP make a change that I didn't like.

Great job, CCP! You're the best!

No matter how you look at it, this IS a "cash grab" as the system relies specifically on PLEX, which can only be introduced into the game through real cash purchase.


What's wrong with "cash grabs" anyway?

No, I like the changes.

It could help new players and that alone is an amazing thing.

Furthermore buying SP has been around for ages.

Stop being poor.

And buying characters costs 2 plex.

With the number of characters which sell every day, if CCP didn't have a monetization angle on it, they'd lose income.

Woo! CSM XI!

Unfortunately this time around its not going to work. Players are too disenfranchised with the game. It happened then because it was all a big shock. Nowadays people are just too apathetic from years of this bullshit. This will be a last straw for many but until it actually gets implemented you won't see the results.

The CSM XI Election are now open until March 25th, 2016. Consider Niko Lorenzio for CSM XI.

CSM matters, your voice matters, your vote matters!

I didn't agree with the riot of Incarnia entirely. Micro transactions were silly but i wanted them to work on a social expansion of this LITERAL SOCIAL GAME. Still majority rule doesn't work in a mental institution.

This is just posturing for someone who needs attention. People like you show the rest of the gaming community as bitchy autistic 10 year old grim-dark cry babies. Your delusional level of entitlement is the reason why we cant have nice things.

This is good for new players, good for business and most importantly GOOD FOR CONTENT!

I support anything that brings more people into the game and facilitates those rough early days for newbies.

-1 for a riot, am late anyways.

A riot, what a stupid kneejerk reaction. People complaining about moneygrab pfff... I want CCP to make enough money, so that they can maintain their workforce, and keep developing this game I love, and keep playing it with my friends for many more years. Stop being so jaded.

Even if the changes only help new players, I support it. There's no reason we can't give new players a helping hand when it comes to the brutal world of EVE Online. They're already racing through support skills just so they can fit what meager ships they have properly, let alone trying to get into better ship classes and bigger guns. Throw them a bone.

It's not going to help new players. It will cost far too much for them. These changes will help old players make alts and rich corps, mostly ones that recruit from outside of the game.

How is charging them real life money throwing them a bone ? It's exploiting them. Helping them would be something like increasing starting SP and lowering training times to reach level 5 for support skills or something that didn't cost extra ion top of the sub.
