CCP Greyscale reports that learning skills will go away. This change to learning mechanics is something that will affect every player so we encourage you to read more about it in his latest blog.

This is a very good decision in favour of new players who no longer will have to choose between fun (training spaceship/module skills) or efficiency (training learning skills). The SP refund should ensure that those of us who invested time into the learning skills did not just waste a few million SP.

I'm sure some people will find this reason to ***** but to be honest, this is simply a decision that makes the game better for everyone.

IBC Very Happy but not IBDV Crying or Very sad

IMHO this is really going to help with noob retention -- not having to train learning skills means they can dive into the game without delay. The plan as described is very similar, btw, to the CSM proposal to Remove Learning Skills.

A couple of things to note:

If your current attribute specifications allow you to train some learning skills at a high rate of SP per hour, you can do some arbitrage over the next few weeks -- train those skills, bank the SP, then use them to train skills where your SP rate is slow (like charisma-based skills).

Also, having a bank account of unused skillpoint will be handy for T3 pilots who are in the habit of getting popped -- they can use them to retrain the skill they lost instantly.

I find this change entirely neutral, but it's populist and gives CCP the chance to offer the illusion that the CSM is powerful and important. And that's what really matters.

Cant wait to get rid of them - and of cause, having 4,7 mill skillpoints to use as you see fit is even better :)

HE....CK YES!
That's something I can be happy with :)
I was utterly ****ed when I learned about learning skills and trained them reluctantly.
Now they go byebye and I can put it to use on more cool things :)
Thank you CCP :)

Which bit in particular makes you think I need fresh air and to calm down?

Or are you just spouting that "u mad bro?" thing that the internet likes so much because you have basically given up on thinking for yourself?

Feel free to ignore what I type and respond to what you wish I had typed.

Still kind of meh about this, but what the hell, 5M SP reimbursed across 3 characters means that Malcanis' Law will apply in my favour.

It least it will shut up the endless threads about this, which is the major benefit from my point of view.

Yes, but, but, I had all these bitter-vet arguments for keeping the learning skills! With CCP going all rational on me, what am I supposed to do with those?

Awesome. Next please remove fitting skills, and anything else that requires investment for future reward.
