Haha, yeah I remember that. Was hilarious how quickly the mood changes once Elise put his two cents in.

That being said, I was talking specifically about today's reaction, not when it was first thrown out. Smile

the major flaw with this idea is that I don't think that there is enough incentive for people to extract SP in the first place.

Sure there is. I have 140 million sp. I dont need to buy any and I wont buy any. Dont need isk and dont need to sell any but there are skills I would like to remove in order to have a perfectly orange character sheet with all V's in important things.

This feature is about character customization not pay-to-win or anything of the sort.


You will not have a perfectly orange sheet with all lvl 5s. You will have a bunch of 0 level skills everywhere mixed in the the level 5s.

Actually you skill sheet will look even worst then.

Something feels wrong about having AUR costs for it, its the first thing where AUR can help you buy skills.. I guess it depends a bit on the cost though. I just worry that like everything else it will be overpriced.

Ok, now Dear CCP please explain, why whould one ever play with with all that useless starter level contenet in that game if one could just dotane x amont of PLEX and buy top tier stuff?

day 1 newbro wants to play meatshield for "big boys"? Donate and fly FOTM.

t1 frigs? Forget. Buy a drug and inject it to get that keres!.

t1 cruisers? Forget. Buy a drug and inject it to get that cerb/prot.whatever is Ishtar ATM.

Or just go big and donate your way to Caps, sit, waiting for a ping, alt+tab, play WOT.

Want to do some 1-4 missions? Forget. Buy a drug and inject it to get that AFKtar, come back to get moar SP \0/ (or use a bot in dead-end system for that extra oumpf)

Thats sad that major source of isk in that game is ratting -> grind.

Welcome the new Korean style EVE:G , grind your way to "top".

next step is enchantments for my Moros!
Great idea, to have it at least +8! It should shine with blue color!

Avert your eyes from the character bazaar forum, then -- effecting a transfer of a character costs 2 PLEX or some money amount which I cannot remember.

There's basically no way CCP will exclude a PLEX or AUR cost from the extractors. If their finance employees are even remotely worth their pay, they would see such an exclusion as a reduction in the capacity of the business to resolve or draw down their liabilities, due to the inevitable reduction in frequency of character transfers. This would be extremely hard to justify.

This will be if released as planned, the very first Pay2Win item in EVE.

Up until now all items bought through the New Eden Store have been nothing more than fancy clothing and ship skins. nothing that will give a player an advantage over another. After this update, we are one step closer to a Pay2Win model.

The “Skill Extractor” should be available by other methods as well as the New Eden Store. Perhaps from CONCORD and/or Sansha LP stores at a high price.

Well, I am completely against this wonderful Roll feature with SP transfers. Not sure where the forum is where people agreed this feature would be welcome, I must have visited the wrong forum all time.
In my opinion this feature is not here to make it easier for new characters. Compared to some years ago the game start has been made by far easier for newbies already.

The only reason why SP transfers will be introduced is CCP's wish to earn more money with the game.
CCP, if you really just want to give new players an easier start, then seed these empty skill injectors to npc market offers or even better, add them to the loot tables so that everyone can find them. This way they'd also be available, but there will be no additional dollars for you.
Pity I believe this would reduce your interest in this new feature to zero.

So as the SP transfer will come anyway, at least tell the truth that the only reason is to milk the cow and don't pretend you want to make it easier for anyone.

Best regards,
Picman

My question is this:

It says points can be extracted if the character has 5,000,000 or more SP. Does this mean I can't milk an alt down to zero? If he has 5.8 million SP, only one million can be extracted? Or since he had 5,000,000+ at one point I can extract him to nothing?


You can never go below 5 Million SP. So to extract SP from a character they will need to have at least 5.5 million SP.

I do hate to say this but it's very similar to just buying a plex and chasing it in to skip out on actually earning the item

So there is just a minium tine before my character can turn into an sp cow? And then I can just regularly milk him at a set time
