CCP Update Jan 2016

CCP have just announced an update at

Skill trading is coming.

Some like this idea.  Others loathe it. For me, Eve is not about instant gratification.  It is something we towards, and when that magic moment comes (different moments for different players), it is all the more sweeter because of it.  I like that skill training takes time.  How much time?  There I see room for flexibility.

My proposals are there to keep those training mistakes, those regretted choices with our characters forever, while still keeping the ability for that player to get that chance to get up to speed faster than they currently do.
