Remap time!

Been a 1.3 years roughly since I started, so my annual remap has been refreshed. In the beginning I went for Perception/Intelligence, and I think it served me quite well for a PvP focus. Now though, I’m switching to Intelligence/Memory, to catch up on all those core skills that I never quite completed because I can be a little obsessive-compulsive when it comes to maximising training efficiency. Hence right now, my skills are heavily invested in spaceship command, gunnery, navigation and a little in missiles. As I said, great for PvP focus, but I do have some catching up to do in other aspects of my character.

Funnily enough, I’ve crammed the limit of 50 skills into my queue, but the total training time only amounts to ~90 days. Hah. I’m avoiding all the level 5s, though, but the fact that I can avoid them means I still have a lot of training to go to become as well-rounded as I would like.

Anyway, my plan is going to consist of a lot of EWAR support skills, finishing my capacitor skills, bonuses for resistance modules, some drone support skills, polishing off my shield skills… okay, I could go on, but lets not. Suffice it to say EveMon puts my plan at about a year, which is perfect because I will probably switch back to a Perception-based attribute scheme next year (wow that’s a while away), to return to skilling into bigger, badder ships.

Some people say they’re too lazy to remap, and I’ll admit, I put quite some time into developing my character’s skill plan. It’s my justification for not PLEXing my account, I guess. I tell myself if I’m making the most out of my training, I am okay to keep paying for my EVE experience.

Hopefully I don’t get bored of training, but recently I’ve barely paid attention to the skill queue. I still remember complaining about week-long skill trains, but today I looked at my 80-day skill queue BEFORE the remap, and I considered just letting that finish before I remapped. But I knew I’d throw more on top of that queue and end up never remapping. The thing is, in terms of gunnery and spaceship command, the skills I can train now benefit only a few ships, or unlock certain ships. These core skills I have switched to training, benefit ALL if not most of the ships I can and will fly in future. It’s a good time to start thinking about them, since I’m not exactly losing EVERY fight I pick nowadays, and can probably step back from aggressively training pure combat skills.

Although I did lose three ships yesterday, in three 1v1s. Was a bit disappointed, but all good, they were good fights!


I'm just a poor boy, but I'd like some commentary~
