CCP put up a dev blog listing out what will be in the next expansion, Phoebe.
And while there are many tasty tidbits to digest on that list… including the whole jump drive nerf, which has gotten some alterations based on feedback… the one stunner for me is CCP removing the limit from the training queue.
You will be able to pile up as many skills as you want in your training queue.
Some people may never have to log in again. I cannot tell if this is truly awesome or horrifying. I know I like it, though you do have to wonder what eventually changed CCP’s mind on this.
And being able to identify a bitter vet will eventually go from those of us who remember when there was no queue to those of us who remember when the queue was only 24 hours long. We have had the 24 hour skill queue for more than five years now. It came in with Apocrypha back in 2009… along with a lot of other stuff. Look at the list on that link. Wormholes. Ship fitting windows. Blue lasers for ice mining. Damn, we take for granted these days.
It isn’t the be all, end all of course. Unless you can inject and queue skills that you cannot yet train, there will have to be some logging in now and again. But it looks like I will be able to load up the remainder of my fleet booster training plan and let it ride after Phoebe drops on November 4th.
Makes me want to create another alt… which I am going to guess is part of what changed CCP’s mind.
