I'll answer your questions even though it's off topic.

Yeah, my ship was destroyed and I was podded only once by PvP even though there's been well over a dozen attempts done by various other players within the past 8 years.

Also you're quite the fool if you think I've never undocked since 2011. I'm a cloaky Nomadic Explorer who also does Event Agent missions. Being safe is all about flying smart.

Obviously you missed the whole point of my post. As I've already said, I'm a firm believer in acquiring as many skillpoints as quickly as I can but in my opinion these Recurring Opportunities is in direct opposition to the core principles of this game.

Your opening line set the tone - 'whatever happened to Risk v Reward & Actions v Consequences ?'

Your killboard looks like something that has taken minimal risks to attain maximum rewards, as far as skill points go.

I like free SP.

Can we now lose SP when dying in a T3 destroyer?

And the log ins do not create significant content, but mindless PvE tasks where the player is literally only in space long enough to shoot a single rat then redock asap.

Instead of asking us to blow up an NPC ship why not just increase the SP accumulation rate when your character is logged in?

Yeah, obviously you didn't comprehend my posted reply. This thread is about Recurring Opportunities giving free skillpoints daily, not about KB stats.

FYI - I don't care about killboard stats, never did and never will. I didn't sub to this game for PvP anyway. Exploration videos by an Eve character named DNightmare is what inspired me to join this game.

As for Risk v Reward, I take plenty of risk traveling through low and null sec space in a clone with +5 Attribute Implants. My reward is faster training time and I've always accepted the consequences of my actions in-game.

By the way, there's a lot more to this game than just KB crap.

Probably because that just encourages people to leave themselves logged in but AFK. Anyone playing around the time of downtime could be logged in all the time.

My wife would love this thread, it has more w(h)ine than Napa Valley.

You would think that CCP said " we are making pvp consensual only everywhere in Eve" OR " We are removing mining and related ships from the game."

But no its over 10k sp you can literally get accidentally while doing something else. you can kill a frig with light drones anywhere in eve... in any system.

Personally i dont think it requires enough effort. I would make it so you get 1 SP for every 50 isk of rat bounty you kill up to 10k SP or something.

So just another forum poster who expects every single feature added to the game to revolve around their play style or they throw a fit, got it.

Ditto. Also that would put a unnecessary workload on CCP's servers.

Hows this for Genius?Cant kill a rat in a C6? Jump through a WH to another system.

Its not mandatory. Did anyone say " You must login and kill x amount of rats and get x amount of SP and you have no choice?" NO. Mandatory means you dont have a choice. You have a choice, you can either choose to kill rats and collect SP or you can spend more time on the forums complaining about killing rats for sp than it would actually take to undock and kill said rats. Or you can simply ignore the entire feature and go on about your eve life as if it doesnt exist. You have so many choices.

And remember folks, there are only two things you have to do in life. Pay taxes, and die. Everything else is a choice including undocking and killing a rat for SP.


How is that for genius?

Totally unfair -- this needs to include PC kills. NPCs are run by the game -- therefore no player input -- Pc vs PC will make this a true contest.

What a brilliant idea..... why has no one thought of this??? If they do this, I pinky swear I will not kill one of my alts sitting in one of the free ships everyday Twisted

bth a free noobship is still less reward than killing a rat, and you have to log 2 accounts

+1

Or just do away with SP accumulation when not logged in

Or is that too WoW ?
