I don't like MMORPGS much. "Ghost training" feature, which is now called a bug, was a reason why i started playing EVE. If CCP has money troubles, they'd better fire financial advisers, who come up with such *great* ideas. And PR managers clever enough to turn features into bugs. So i'm voting for returning ghost training.

Training is playing.

You should have to pay to play.

I'm tired of all you whiners complaining, "OMG, I have to pay to play?!"

If you can't afford to pay a monthly subscription but expect CCP to allow you to play for free then go find something else to play. You rage quiting will not be missed. Laughing

It's not about money. It's about CCP's lies and features turning into bugs.

I must admit that I've had 3 accounts up till now. If I was short of funds, I'd let one account slide but at least he was still training. It's only one level FFS, it wasn't as if we could queue up several skills to train one after the other. A month later when I got paid, I would pay his account again but only one of my accounts (my main) has skills that would take over a month to train at the moment so I would still lose training time. Most of us use all of our accounts and having one not active is actually a set-back. I don;t know how CCP came to the conclusion that it aids farming characters, especially now that we can only buy 60 day GTC's now and not 30 day.

Either they introduce a queue or they re-instate ghost training since one would negate the possibility of the other. It seems like CCP want it both ways and if that's the case, I'll be looking for another game to play. I know CCP has it's current financial problems, we all do with the recession at the moment but taking ghost training away from players is not going to force them to spend money they haven't got.

I've started to get into Taikodom now and it looks to be quite good once it's past Beta. Playing it for free right now but if I quit Eve, I'll have the resources to pay for it and get the good stuff.

Most of my old friends from Eve have quit now, I really starting to think It's time I moved on as well and this, along with the onslaught of nerfs recently, is beginning to make me feel more serious about it. The only reason I have stayed is because I have invested a lot of time in my characters so it would be a shame to biomass them but it's a game and if I feel that I can no longer play it because of recent changes, I'll go ahead and do it.

I fully support training one skill while an account has expired.

Why ghost training should be re-enabled? Training times. Long, long, LONG training times. There's nothing quite like the training times in Eve anywhere else.

ABSOLUTELY NOT! This one of the most blatant cases of MMO cry babyism I have ever seen. YOU HAVE NOT PAYED FOR THE SKILL TRAIN... you char is not active... he is lucky to be remembered for you. MEGA thumbs down. If it ever was advertised as a "feature" of eve I can understand why it is now referred to as a bug. Personally I see people getting irritated at having to address billing issues over and over again with people who complain over a few bucks... I've been there but I am better now... PHEW.

I support no pay - no train.

Thank you CCP for putting a stop to this.

No support for the whiners. Those who threatened to quit over this, please do so promptly

let's return to Todd and Frank. Todd runs two accounts over a year, both of which are lapsed and "Ghost Training" for three months out of the year, while Frank runs a single account subscribed for the entire year. Assuming they both pay in one month intervals of 14.99 per month:

Todd's Accounts: 179.40 * 0.75 * 2 = 269.10
Frank's Account: 179.40 * 1.00 * 1 = 179.40

Therefore,... Todd's two "Ghost Training" accounts bring in more money than Frank's single perma-subscribed account.

Your numbers are flaw'd and clearly setup to support your point of view.
You cannot put a fix'd number on how often Todd is on.
Without any research.

Lets give another example... mine clearly setup in favor of my point of view.
Joe who is subscribed sporadicly, and Frank's who is perma-subscribed.

Joe's Accounts: 179.40 * 0.40 * 2 = 143.52
Frank's Account: 179.40 * 1.00 * 1 = 179.40

Therefore, Frank's permanate account yields more money for ccp, and less resources on both time and server resources managing multiple accounts.

90% of statistics are made up on the spot

no PLAY - no skills

Skill training is not THE game. It is part of the game, for sure, but it is not THE game. That would suck.
Someone (Joe) who ghost trains ____ to level V is at a DISadvantage to the other guy (Bob), who trains the same skill to level V, because Bob is still playing for the month or so, making teh ISK to buy his ship the the new skill will get him, or just ISK in general. Joe, after he comes back, sure, he can fly the ship, but he can't afford the ship.
Ghost training puts the player at a disadvantage to players who don't.

This change is stupid. Allowing a skill to train when someone takes a break from the game encourages return business.

Bring back ghost training.

Calling it an 'abused bug' is a absurd joke when it was touted as a 'feature' not so long ago in CCP's own player guide and marketing information.

Let me guess though, the inability to train all the characters on your account concurrently is still a feature and not a bug.

Posted - 2009.03.19 15:25:00 - [292]

I hope CCP will see that ghost training is a necessity.

Nope nada and no way. Pay to Play. In this case, Pay to train skills. I stand by CCP's decision for Ghost Training.

Supported but it won't happen :(, there's too much money in play.

This needs to come back, as per some other replies, sometimes people arent away from the game because they want to be, but because of RL circumstances.
