__

The one and only logical reason for NOT having a skill queue in the first place has vanished .

I demand urgent,
nay, IMMEDIATE implementation
of an UNLIMITED (or at least ridiculously large)
(both in) length and size skill training queue !


Please show support Twisted Evil

______




UPDATE : GOOD NEWS !!!

http://myeve.eve-online.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&bid=621

Skillqueue to be implemented in the 10th of March 2009 expansion.
Skillque implementation is supposed to be 24 hours long.
In other words, whatever skills you want in 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds max, then start the skill that will last from that moment on.


Personally, I think it's a decent enough compromise.
Not the best solution, but reasonably fair.

At least give 5 skill queue, having to go online for couple small skills is ridiculous especially if they finish at night.

Easy now Akita, they're too busy dealing with all the spin needed to calm down the incessant whining to actually develop anything right now.

Just imagine what the Petition queue is going to be like from all the 'evemon said it should be done training, and it isn't' complaints?


EDIT: Oh, and to the Idea, I think I would actually prefer that instead of a queue, it would just continue training the current skill until Level V or completed. This would be MUCH faster to code (possibly within a day?), and it just seems to make more sense to me.

Would be nice to have some kind of queue - be it a definable one or just train current skill to V.

However, I'm not going to quit if it's not implemented Wink

EVEmon works great, but it can't change my skill training.

I pay for my two accounts a year at a time. If I am unable to access the game for a time, e.g. my computer explodes, HOW DO I CHANGE MY SKILL TRAINING???

GIVE US THE ABILITY TO QUEUE OUR SKILLS!!!
And possibly give EVEmon the ability to do it!

I agree 100%... There is NO valid reason that CCP can't code a LARGE skill queue into this game! Unless they don't know how to do it, which I SERIOUSLY doubt.

Skillque + skilling multiple chars on one account please... (with only one char capable of queue-skilling).

Take some give some :)

Originally by: CCP Prism X
I, for one, find it perfectly fair that people pay for services that my work, or others, render to them.
That being said I did not make this decision, I'm a database developer.
I don't know why I got the mail about implementing this.
I, however, find it very reasonable.
Although it might deter people from paying good money to train offline. Can't comment on that as I don't do marketing analysis nor do I read them (which is understandable seeing as they don't affect my work).

But I can see that you are not. That doesn't make me particularly happy as I do believe we earn our revenue. You might not agree with me there either though and I wouldn't know how to convince you otherwise, other than work even more. So I can't help you on that front.

I can, however, offer a compromise. I will happily implement any sort of queue for you guys IFF (yes, double F, it has a meaning) there is a green light from game design. That doesn't constitute a promise more than anything else I say here but I'll do it. I'll even go and mention it to people tomorrow, just for you guys.
With a smile on my face.
Because I love this game. What it is and what it will be.

Supported.

I play EVE parttime and EVE is great for casual play, aside from the 'having to dash off in the middle of dinner, mowing the lawn, washing the dog or walking the car to change a skill' part. Just a 2-3 skill limited queue would do, ty.

Skill queue, hell yeah! It's been asked for at least as long as I've been playing, (as has the killing of ghost training).

I'll even train levels of 'advanced learning' for extra queue slots if I have to. 1 queue slot for everyone with no training, 1 more for each level trained. Or just the 'train same again'. Either works for those "oh crap i have forgotten to set a skill and it's another 13 hours before I get home again" moments.

I'm in a very cynical mood today thanks to the mistake of actually going near the forums yesterday, so I'll moodily predict this gets locked or merged because we're supposed to only have one thread per topic, and there's already a Skill Queue issue. Wink

Edit: Oh and this thread mentions ghost training, so that doubles the chances immediately.

That said, damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead! I support this long-asked-for notion as wholeheartedly as I did the last hundred times this topic has come up.

A queue of 1 extra skill would be enough. It would fiy all problems with skill training if your PC broke or the server cluster is down etc.

With ghost training gone there is really no harm in an inifinite queue.

I agree a skill training queue would be great especially now you can only train whilst paying for it.

Hell they might have even killed off the ghost training because they are planning to bring in such a change and don't want it abused

I agree, the only reasons for not having a skill queue were nuked along with ghost training, full support here.

Skill queue is an excellent way to attract more people from the casual player and multiple mmo player crowd.

While I'd like to see a skill queue implemented as much as you (and I've been very vocal about the subject,) there's already a long, loooong thread about this already here:

CSM - CCP Meeting 001 - 0001 Skill Queue Functionality

I don't see the need for another thread on the subject, really. Sorry.

Edit: In a true Gallente spirit I need to add that, if you want this made different, or want to have a more active role in the priorities CCP assign to important subjects, nominate yourself for the CSM. If you promise to bring this topic to CCP so they put it in a higher priority, I'll vote for you. Promise.
Meanwhile, I'll accept what the current CSM (and CCP) have decided for this matter.

Well, I guess the difference//keywords would be "unlimited" (or close to unlimited) and "now".

I actually have given it some thought (the CSM thing), but there are twothree issues at hand here.

First, I *hate* travelling, and I don't have a valid passport (last one expired about a year ago, only used it once in the 5 years it was valid). Especially since normally I wouldn't need a passport to enter Iceland (EU member) in the first place.
Second, I really can't be out of the country in the date/period the CSM is supposed to be meeting, and I have this nagging sensation I wouldn't really be able to attend all online meetings of the CSM either.
Finally, I really dislike NDAs, and I would feel EXTREMELY restricted by the terms I would be forced to obey by if I signed them. Especially since my life philosophy is "nearly full disclosure" on just about everything.

Bottom line, while I could make a decent CSM member under ideal RL circumstances, I really don't feel up to it right now. At some later time, maybe.
