Data Mining

EVE[EVE Online] The latest EVE devblog has some interesting information about the skillpoint totals of the currently active players. I will share this information below.

They also mention that the average EVE player sticks around for 7 months. As reference, I’m just over 6 million skillpoints and I started playing in May 2005.

  1. They say it is someone named “Doctor Caymus”. I know one thing; it would suck to get pod-killed at that level.

  2. Im shooting for the 10mil point. If you use character manager you can actually see your SP/sec which is kinda cool. Or mabey its per day…must be per day as Inm drawing like 1400 or so….

  3. Is the character manager not working since they put in the new server? It was working fine before that time, but not I can’t watch my progress at work. It’s quite sad. I liked watching the sand fall through the hour glass.


  4. I know CCP changed IP addresses and DNS stuff so it’s likely the char. manager is not working until the people that made it update the software. Look for a new update maybe?

  5. mine is working, but I update manually as the CM cant seem to handle my three accounts….even though others, at leaste one other I know of, runs 6 or more ….meh

  6. Make sure you fire off long-term skills to be trained, if you think you won’t log on much, or even if you plan to cancel the account. If you do come back, it’ll be nice to have gotten something done while you were gone. Stay in touch!
