Chat channels: can chat but I am not in the chatlist (\o/ Monkeysphere 2.0).

Expect an emergency DT soon!

Meat is good.
Meat is healthy.
You need meat.

Really. There are ppl on this earth that claim they dont need meat, or they dont want meat, but the fact is they DO need meat.
It contains a lot of proteins and other healthy stuff, also, meat can be very good combined with vegetables, a bottle of good wine, or with a fine lady talking about all kinds of nonsense.
In the case you are in good company of such fine lady, I urge you to taste your meat first before you kiss her, or the meat will be a major dissapointing.

Also, **** safe, use a condom! Bye! *peace*


Red meat isn't bad for you, Fuzzy green meat is bad for you.

Hope the sleplessness (yes thats a word) and stress of moving was worth it and hopefully give TQ a chance to grow and become better.

First, who says you need compensated? Second, perhaps you're being compensated with the free SP they're talking about. Rolling Eyes

Nope, everything is fine so far, as far as I can tell anyway. If anything, I was surprised to find that the ammo I used just before DT has re-appeared in my cargo-hold ugh

Horrible precedent to set.
This. I've always praised CCP for being firm on their reimbursement policy, and this just screams bad precedent.


This, and I join others in hoping this new SP injection system isn't going to be used for what I'm thinking it's going to be used for.


Like removing all learning skills and replacing said skills with a SP pool which we can then distribute as we see fit to any other skills? Very Happy


sweet raptor jesus i get to get my learning points back in semi near future? hello Fighters five!

Well that's cool I'll take your gift. I personally appreciate that my skills will be finished a day or two earlier - it means that I'll reach this milestone that much sooner and move on to the next. I long ago stopped giving a damn what other people have trained. Rolling Eyes

I agree that I need to disagree with you. Gifts to all players calm the masses. Gifts to just one player only help calm the *snip* that appear after a freak *snip* No, not inappropriate at all... Rolling Eyes Shadow. .

Funny, I had just composed a forum post suggesting that for curtesy sake some sort of gift was in order...and I had come to a similar conclusion that skill points would do all players good while a isk gift would jump newer players over the fun game challenge of building a foothold or be so small to be meaningless to longer term players.

No one is "owed" anything...and while providing good service is expected from businesses, I do appreciate the idea of the upgrade whether if were a business necessity or not.

But, a gift is more a social convention than anything and it would have felt a bit coarse to me not to give a little something in recognition of an inconvenience.. especially when the cost wouldn't have cost almost anything had the skill point mechanism been in place (it will now be there for similar events)

Its just how things are done and you miss it when it isn't done. Sort of like a free desert if the kitchen botches your order at a restaurant or not coming empty handed to a party at a friends house. Its not the money but the gesture.

(on that same token, I think it sounds more gracious not to tie the sp exactly to the down time but just some nice round number a bit more than a character with high attributes would have earned in maybe 150% of the delay...you want to sound generous, not like some frugal accountant and the difference would be negligible)

Great to hear. Perhaps it was a glitch (Vale region).

Will check again!

Compensated because i paid for 30 days now i get only 28. PLus, the skillpoints, the way i interpreted it, is only for people who were logged in at the time the server went down. I wasn't online.

Or did i miss something? And skill points don't get me my lost time back...

You agreed to the EULA when signing up, didn't you? Well, the EULA 12. says:

While CCP attempts to have the System available at most times, CCP does not guarantee that the System will always be available, or that the System will not become unavailable during Game play. The System may become unavailable for a number of reasons, including without limitation during the performance of maintenance to the System, for the implementation of new software, for emergency situations and due to equipment or telecommunications failures.

Plus, you interpret it wrong. The article says "active", not "online". So any account which was activated by 23/06/2010, 09:00 (or whenever it was) get's it, no matter if you've been online or not.

You missed something - it says accounts that are active, not logged in - big differance there - so if you have an account you get some free skill points to use as you see fit !

What does this mean ?

we will give an extra pool of skillpoints to all accounts [...]
This will be done through a new system in the development pipeline, currently scheduled for deployment next Tuesday’s patching opportunity


In addition of the 2day of sp gift,
Does CCP manage to withdraw the Learning skills of the game and to deal their pool of SP in others skills ?

Well, at least we get some bonus SP out of it. I had a skill that I figured would be long enough in the queue, but turns out that I came up short by about 4 hours. So, for all of us that feel that we got royally screwed in the behind, at least we got a reacharound out of it.

Curious as to this free gift.

Being in the IT myself, I understand such mishaps... It's frustrating for both engineers and customers alike, but **** does happen.

Nice gesture though to do something for the pilots in compensation of the downtime!
