Skill queue is not needed.

train skills with short time left while you are online

train long skills while you're offline.

no planning necessary.

however it is necessary to log in. oh noes!

better things to do than queuing skills eh?

Come back and tell me that once you have over 20 partially trained skills with several hours left....

How about "I'm NOT online 2-4 hours every day and I have several L5 skills I don't absolutely need, but a lot of partially trained lower-level skills that I would need" ?
My SHORTEST skill right now is at around 6 hours, and plenty more between 6 and 12 hours, skills I want trained at a higher level.

So, yeah, a skill queue IS needed, both for very young and very old players.
The only players that don't really feel the need for one are the "half a year to a year" players, give or take a couple of months.

Yup, didn't feel the need for it as stronlgy as a very young player though, but that was because there was so much to train for that there was always something usefull to train. Now, I find myself training skills to LVL 5 I don't need at LVL 5 just because my skill points won't go to waste...

While I don't consider it as urgent as some other things... it would certainly be a welcome feature.

The reason why I support this idea is because it can have various positive effects.

Currently a lot of people probably log in just to change a skill and they idle for some time so they can activate the next skill training.
If there is a queue, those people could queue their short training skills and just log in, set skills, and log out.
CCP says they want people to play the game, but the people that login just to change a skill aren't playing anyway.

Another thing about this is that it will decrease the load on the servers a lot, because people don't have to stay logged in if they are doing some short training skills. Also the amount of players logged in will be more accurately.

You get the idea..

I support this thread - Although I would be satisfied with just having 2 or 3 queue slots, unlimited is really not needed.

There's have been countless ideas for this, and while I support the idea in general, it has to be worked out in specifics to work well.

I think the best solution I've seen is where you set a long skill as a secondary and a short one as a primary, and while the primary skill is training, it takes up 3/4 of your training speed, and the the long skill 1/4. Once the primary skill finishes, the secondary one trains at maximum speed until you select a new primary skill.

First, downside to using it is that neither skill trains as fast as it would alone. But on the upside if you D/C or there is an unscheduled DT, your long skill will kick in at full speed once the short skill finished. Also, It makes training up the ridiculously long skills palatable by making them be 'out of sight, out of mind' as it were. Carrier V anyone?

If it's implemented like this, I would so use it, and my skill training would cease to be interrupted by DTs, or connection issues, or even just plain forgetting. Cool

Lets say you have everything nice and planned. You have a 5 minute gap in your schedule where you can change skills, and a skill set to end in that time.

Just before you login the server goes down unexpectedly. You now have to wait at least 10 minutes before you can log back in, assuming an instant reboot. But in 5 minutes, you have to leave.

If you have a queue of sufficient length, this problem won't happen.

/signed also would like the removal of the QR patch all together, CCP has lost the plot and losing me as a customer. Only thing I would keep is the new ship, but would give that up in a second to get speed back into the game. This patch is a really bad joke, that is not funny.
