Another bonus skill point week has started – between 200,000 and 650,000 free skill points per account for just logging in each day for a week.
CCP indicate it is part of the lead up to Halloween celebrations, but it is odd to see it rushed back so quickly.
Unlike the Skills for Kills event ( https://www.eveonline.com/article/pyoxkd/skilling-spree-returns ) – which I haven’t bothered to collected this time even once on any of my accounts, I was enticed to log in for a couple of minutes to collect this bonus. But that was all it was – a couple minutes to redeem then I logged off again.
A more positive reason for being online is that CPP have now made a bunch of ships warp quicker, and autopilot to also be a bit more efficient.
Wilhelm Arcturus goes into a bit more depth, but improvements of a third to a half for many medium to large ship hulls have been noted.
I’m not sure the Nestor, which has always been a nice Battleship to warp around in, was buffed to keep it in quite as a unique place.
