Dear Capsuleers,

As you might have heard recently, we announced the removal of learning skills. This is a massive engineering challenge, much like the ongoing work we test through mass tests. To ensure a smooth rollout, we at CCP do what are called “Upgrade Tests”. These are full upgrades of a copy of TQ, just like how Singularity always runs a so called “Mirror” of TQ. For our final upgrade test, we need your help!

The why
As mentioned above, this is a giant task. We need as close to realistic test-data as possible to ensure that everything will happen smoothly when this goes to Tranquility. And that’s why we need you lovely people!

The how
Very simple.
  1. Log into Singularity between now and Friday morning, December 3 at 01:00 UTC. You can use the Singularity launcher tool to do this.

  2. Set a skill queue which will last AT LEAST until Friday December 3, 01:30 UTC.

  3. Over the weekend, log into Singularity again and check that you have received the appropriate skill point and ISK reimbursement. If it wasn’t, file a bug-report and we will look into it.


But what do I get?
Beyond the fact you of course will be getting the SP you have invested in learning skill back, we will running on the same principle as mass tests do. You help out, you get extra skill points on Singularity to use! We’re giving out 5 million skill points, on top of the reimbursed learning skill points you get.
The criteria for getting these extra 5 million skill points, is that you have an active skill queue on Friday, 01:30 UTC. Very simple indeed.

Please note that due to the sheer magnitude of this task, Singularity will be down for an extended period of time on Friday at the conclusion of the test, estimated around 7-12 hours. So the server might not be up till Friday afternoon.

I’m ready!
Good! Just log into Singularity, set a skill queue that lasts till at least Friday December 3, 01.30 GMT. When you then log in on Saturday, check if all your skill points were reimbursed as expected. If they weren’t, file a bug-report. Having done that, spend your newly available skill points we’ve given you on Singularity into whatever your heart desires and enjoy the weekend, knowing that the same will soon happen on Tranquility thanks to your help(EDIT: Only without the 5mill SP bonus, as that's only on Singularity)

As always, we really appreciate people’s help with these sorts of things. So if you have 15 minutes to spare over the next day and a half, please take the time and help with ensuring that you will get the SP you’re entitled to, come the impending removal of learning skills!

Thanks in advance,
CCP Stillman, on behalf of Team Yggdrasill and EVE QA.

Getting SP for doing favors makes me feel a little dirty, much like I would doing sexual services for candy. Sweet and nice, but feels wrong Twisted Evil

Hi,

I would like to know how can I spend the reimbursed SPs. Do I have to do it at next login after the deployment? Or can I split them up and spend the SPs at different time points later on? Can I save some SPs for skills I don't have at the moment or with other words I will inject later?

Cheers,

Cher

You can set any skill as training. I'll personally be setting a learning skill to try and break things Very Happy

I have a bunch of learning skill books left over in the corp hanger. I will be hiding them all over EVE like an Easter egg hunt to make sure I still get reimbursed correctly. In corp hangers, in personal hangers, in anchored cans, in station vaults inside corp hangers in 0.0 systems, Etc,. There is a spreadsheet. Laughing

I have now set a skill that will stop while the server is down. And start a new one as well.

Both are learning skills.

Truth is always inappropriate.
Silencing a voice of dissent doesn't change the way things are.
No offense meant to anyone.

It might be a good idea to tell people to take a screenshot of their skillqueue before, so they can easy compare it with what they get.

May be a silly question but are these 5mil extra sp able to be used on the main server?

No, they will be on the Singularity server only. They will be available for you to spend until the next deletion and re-mirror of the Sisi database, which currently is not scheduled. I can guarantee at least three weeks, probably more.

Not meaning to be rude but how would 5 mil on a test server only be an incentive for us to stop our training que on Tranquility for a period of 36 hours or more? We can't interact with our Corp's Can't make any transactions or actions that have to do with the real server and then in 3 weeks it goes away. It's actually going to provide more frustration at seeing what one could have but with the knowledge that it doesn't count and won't be permanent.

Is the bonus of 5 million skill points credited to Tranquility or Singularity?

So these 5m SP won't survive sisi mirrors as other mass testing 2m sp gifts did?
