So I activated a second account today and wanted to set up my skill tree via EveMON. I went to get my API and it said I have to wait 72 hours to login!? Are you kidding me, CCP?

So I petitioned it in hopes of getting CCP to give me my full API. I don't know if they will. Having to wait 72 hours on an active account for "Security Reasons" is a complete joke IMO. Evil or Very Mad

/end vent.

nope, that's exactly why, ppl abuse the forums with newer accounts and the forum and API logins are tied together

it's not really new....been around for like 2-3 years now lol

Well it's news to me. Shocked

Either way - it's annoying that people abused a system and screwed the others over. I'm hoping CCP will give me my API at least so I can focus on what I want to do instead of wasting game time training at a sub-optimal speed.

Maybe I should press CCP for an added day or two of game time. Twisted Evil

assuming you're old enough to have a fair idea of where you're sending your toon (ship, whatever), just set the skills that the hull needs (srsly, the info is in the game...), or general support skills (cap, cpu, pg, etc), or the "support" skills you'll need for the ship(s) you want to fly (gunnery, missiles, armour, shield, etc).

Already done. I just wanted to remap the attributes for optimal settings and buy specific implants and doing those calculations through EveMON simplifies my life. Shocked

You should have grabbed the API before subbing and getting locked out.

if u really need to, evemon has a blank character creator tool you can use before you have your api

If you do a buddy invite, they can get their API instantly.

As soon as you buy the full game, that's when you can't get your API for 72 hours.

Makes sense, nope...

cause trial accounts can't post on forums in the first place and that is why the 72 hr timer exists

Right. And I knew about this before I subscribed, too. Rolling Eyes
