Skill queue online?

Starting tomorrow, you will no longer have to log in.

Or at least not on your alts that you're training. As most know by now, tomorrow is the Phoebe release, and it's bringing something in the game that nobody really saw coming. Or at least I didn't. 
The 24 hour queue will disappear, you will no longer have to check up on your queue to check whether or not it's still running or if you forgot. Starting tomorrow, you can put your whole skill plan from EvEmon in there. 

Which is a good thing, or at least it is if, like me, you have a few characters just skilling up for certain parts but you're not doing anything else with them. With this new feature I won't have to remember to check up on them, I'll have hundreds of days on training already put up on them. Yay!

The one thing that might be bad about all this is the fact that not only people with alts will have no reason to log in. I myself have been there before, logging in just to update my skill queue, but when doing that I did start to talk to people and do things with them from time to time. If you don't need to log in anymore because you have years of training ready, you won't have any reason to start talking anymore and you might just not log on anymore. 

But I guess CCP saw more positive points on all this than the negative ones.

I have to admit that other than that I don't know much more about the Phoebe release, I saw the invention changes but turns out they decided to wait with those for the next one. We'll see.

As for what I'm doing in game right now, it's pretty boring. I sold my POS parts, I moved to another system on one of my characters, I'm putting lots and lots of blueprints in my invention slots and I'm about to start FW on another character.

Pretty curious to see how that will turn out. It's about time I tried it, who knows, I might just like it. 

Stay tuned o7


  1. I'm really looking forward to this one. =D

    1. You and me both, this will make my life a lot easier once I figured out the correct skill plan.. Won't have to log in to multiple characters a week/month to check up on them

  2. You didn't read the small print details did you :)

    Granted it was not in the patch notes but a post in the forums from one of the devs about this states there IS still a limit but its about 50 days not 24 hours. This is due to a technical limitation but most people will not be affected.

    Still 50 days is much better than 24 hours.

    1. And of course I'm so glad I've just spent twenty minutes double, double, triple checking what I said and I got it wrong. I think.

      I can't find the devpost (i'm still looking) but I believe the limit is NOT days but number of individual skills:

      That's the exact comment, as I said still looking for the dev who posted about this too. And I will find it... I must.

    2. :D Well, tbh even if it had only been 50 days, it's still a lot more than 24 hours. However, if it's 50 skills, well.. I don't see how that'll be a problem, I can't even think about 50 skills to put up now, I just have 10 or so that'll keep me busy for the next 365 days on one alt! :)

    3. And as a last reply to this one.. According to the dev blog its 10 year limit with 50 skill limit.. So, that's pretty nice
