This took a long time to come, but is very welcome...

No more will we have to deal with newcomers complaining about having to go through this mandatory learning skill training hazing.

Sorry if you already said this, but if we have multiple chars on an account do each char get the appropriate skillpoints or will it all go onto the highest SP char?

Interesting. I guess it will make life easier for newbs (I remember spending first 3 months of my life training them, it was horrible!) and will give me 4 743 765 skillpoints to redistribute. While I'm a bit annoyed about loss of 11 skills I think the amount of skil lpoints I can use for instant gratification will soothe my distress a bit.

Additional question about the +12 points though. If I happen to have .. uh .. stockpiled considerable amount of cha 3 Achuras it will just mean that they will get +12 points to each attribute they currently have - correct? Not automagically converted into 20/20/20/20/19 with only ugly face for show of their Achura heritage. Just to be sure Wink

Absolute horse excrement.
I spend all those months on all my accounts to get a prefect V on all learning skills and now this .... seriously.
Absolute horse excrement.
Absolute horse excrement.

Time spend to get the skills to V is more then the actual SP being reimburst.
Very unhappy even if I understand CCP needs to make EVE more appealing to newcomers.

I don't understand why people make such a fuzz about learning skills.

You do it, you are done with it. Fine.


Getting rid of them, dumbing down EVE to lure more players in. Oh well, as long as it only removing learning skills and not dumbing down other, more vital parts of EVE then I'm okay with that. But it is a slippery slope.

It is the nature of EVE that you need to make decisions with consequences. Gettings into destroyers fast NOW or waiting a bit and training learning skills to that you can do things faster LATER. Decisions, with consequences.

Just be careful not to dumb down too much!

I suppose I feel good about this. Just thinking about the time I spent maxing out the skills..... but I suppose the SP reimbursement should make up for it.

Certainly a great move for new players.

Edit: I presume there is no way the SP can be transfered to an alt on the same account? The SP would be useful, but I have trained my main for most things, and currently working on alts.

Yes, it is per character so any characters who have learning skills trained will have the pool of skill points to reallocate.

CCP, why are you doing this? Confused Firstly you removed attribute diversity for bloodlines, now learning skills. Do you realize, that they added depth to the game? Now everybody will be the same? What' the point? This game is getting too casual...Evil or Very Mad

One question.
If the additional 12 base points and learning bonus would make skilling crazy fast, what does the accelerator do for commander box set newbies?
Make them skill faster than they can afford to buy the skill books?

Other than that i see this as only being good for everyone.

So I may have missed it, but can someone explain if Attribute Implants are still to be used?

Over all though, not a bad move for the new peeps

If you asked me yesterday whether i thought CCP would ever remove the blight of learning skills, i would of said no.

I really think it is a move in the right direction =)

Removing learning skills is not dumbing EVE down, it's smarting it up. Training "nothing" for weeks on end before getting to actually train your character is stupid and drives newbies away.

I spent weeks on them and say, good riddance.

the problem about learning skills is, they are just a nuisance, because it's pretty much mandatory to learn them to a relatively high level.
