Due to the abnormally long downtime we experienced the June 23 and 24, CCP has decided to provide all pilots with skill point restitution.

This reimbursement will be applied during the Tyrannis 1.0.2 deployment on June 29.

As a news item published on the 24th stated: "In gratitude for your patience and after consulting the Council of Stellar Management, we will give an extra pool of skill points to all accounts (paying and trial) that were active at the beginning of this downtime, on one character per account. This skill point pool will be appropriately sized for the downtime time frame, universal across all accounts regardless of character attributes/implants and may be applied as each player wants."

This pool of skill points will be added to the highest skilled character on each account but if you wish for the skill points to be added to a different character on your account, please file a petition under the Skills & Clones category under the Reimbursement petition group.

Details of how to apply the skill points can be found in this wiki article.

And if we say, already applied those skills because we did not know this was an option, might there be a way to get a 'do-over'?

Please?

This oopsie was run by the CSM? Well color me pink and call me a slaver, I guess that adds one more thing to "Uncle Jul's big list of things to blame on the Charade of Stellar Management".

I would suggest you submit a petition under the same category of Reimbursement, Skills & Clones.

Hey CCP, it was extreme fun to inject those points. I heard you want us to have fun, so can you give us more of that free SP pools ? Maybe every time a CCP employee has birthday, we get 100k * age or some such?

tl;dr: gimme moar gimmegimme moar !!Smile

What I want to know is what test lv 5 is on that 500m sp CCP toon used for guide.
Probably bad stuff. If i was ccp I'd have secret skills and be up to no good with them too.

If I decide to use it in 2 month, I will still be able to change character?

I have an alt on other account that I own. Could I petition to x-fer the points from one account character to another on a different account?

What if we had an active account but no character created yet?

My dearest thanks to whoever gave the final green light to this. It is afaik first of its kind (read: 7 years late to implement Twisted Evil) but still a very welcomed improvement. I hope this will not be a one-time act, but will be repeated if similar inconveniences occur in the future.

It probably doesn't mean much if anything at all to veterans with 100 mill sps, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean much to CCP itself either, not likely to reduce their income statement.

But it is a very kind gesture in my opinion, and will probably cut down the whinings on forums in future extended downtimes. It will at least shut my own mouth, given that I will know if there's extensions to the extended downtimes, at least I will not be taken for granted anymore.

Thanks again.

My prediction for skillpoint mechanism:

Its not there for microtransaction but for a way to offer incentive to returning players..."rejoin eve now and get one million skillpoints"

Bah. I had a feeling this would bite me in the arse.

I did the naughty thing before CCP nerfed it, sent myself a buddy invite, got EVE off Steam when it was on sale and transfered a alt (12m sp) to the new account as I already had another alt (27m sp) that I was training.

Doesn't really feel worth it to pay another 20 euros, petition and then pay 20 euros more to move the character back.

Not really an issue as such, but how are the skill point pools calculated? Is the 55,062 seen in the wiki example the standard pool for everybody? And what is that, some standard training rate * the extra downtime?

(Can't actually access the game at the moment to see it, just curious.)

After using the skillpoints in the manner I desired how long does it take for the update to be shown on the API? There's been several hours since I spent them, but the API does not display the new skill level.

I have just been told that I have lost all of my free skill points because the character that recieved them has been deleted. I feel so robbed. Sad
