here's a idea for the test servers...
Have every character with all skills to lvl 5 so we can get a feel for the ships and the minors can play around in carriers and dreads. It would be super fun...
And make a PvP arena, It would make all the lvl 5 skill thing more interesting

Once in a blue moon CCP arranges what they call Armageddon Day .. all skills to level 5.

Will not happen until they are content that they have found all the game breaking bugs though. Until then we have to keep testing using realistic skills.

Part of the testing process requires that people train skills so this can be tested. Then CCP release a new class of ship they do give people the skilsl to pilot them.

Also they do not want people to just test the big things, they want people to test frigites as well. It has been discussed many times, do a search if you want the offical CCP statement about this.

There are a million reasons. I'll list a few:


  • If they allowed everyone to have level 5 skills, everyone would be testing big/fancy ships and uber modules (why use Tech 1 when you have the skills for Tech 2?).

  • You would never find out how different properties of modules affect you. Game balance goes for a toss when all skills are at level 5.

  • No one would find out if weapon X is overpowered or if module Y isn't behaving properly.

  • Everyone would have the same cookie cutter setups (worse than it already is) and no innovation would take place. A lot of people come on SiSi to test setups before they can buy the modules on TQ.

no blue halo around your post? O.o
on topic: maybe max out our learning skills and cybernetics so we can test out different skillpaths on the test server? all that extra learned stuff will go away every time you mirror anyways
