And with that I may just have the needed time to inject my command ship skill before the change happens (need to run the math one more time).Thank you CCP!

SP is a good way to redeem them but wouldn't it be better to prolong all Pilot licences for another +1day *me just saying* that would have been a better idea. since SP is free for CCP and playtime is not. If they co*kup alot then it should be costy for them. and the launcher was a mess.(I retract my previous statement that my clients worked fine, as when I got off work next day I was in the limbo of offline mode. ). But if you compare it to CCP old school patches where patch day meant game beeing unplayable for a few days then its ALOT better.

SP is free.Extending subs by a day costs real money.

I think that was his point. Frankly, it makes sense. If we're paying a subscription, we are paying for each day of it, and if a paid for day is lost, it should be replaced likewise with an extra paid for day. This is exactly what most other MMOs would do in a similar situation. However the nature of skill training in EVE means that SP are *almost* the same as paid time, so CCP gets the easy out without costing them any real expense.In the end, this makes it a nice gesture, but it feels disingenuous and devoid of real substance on their part.

If you have Command Ships injected when the patch comes you will get some leaderships skills to 5 by default (More free SP).

I been wondering that for years too. No one outside the USA knows or cares what it means.It's just a random word from those bad American teen movies.Don't worry - you can get through life without ever knowing it's definition and ignoring it (I have) as it won't ever appear anywhere important.

On Tuesday the 21st, CCP rolled out the new client launcher for Eve Online. However, it wasn't without flaws and more than a few players were unable to log in or access the game. As a result, CCP took a lot of flak on the botched rollout. In response to the complaints, CCP Guard made an announcement on the Eve Online forums that CCP would be granting players 50,000 free skill points, to be made available after downtime on Friday, 24 May 2013. This works out to roughly a free day's worth of training.

Who doesn't like free skill points?
