I woke up this morning to find that CCP had declared this weekend would get you bonus skill points for logging in.
I am not sure why this weekend was picked. Maybe it celebrates the new person joining the community team. I don’t know. But whatever. More free skill points. I won’t turn my nose up at that.
The event follows the usual routine. For each of the three days after downtime you log in, claim your skill points, pick which character gets them. Omega accounts get more skill points than Alphas.
Alpha accounts get 45,000 skill points if they log in all three days, while Omegas get 130,000 for their login effort. If you are Alpha and want all those skill points, there is a handy button to click to upgrade to an Omega subscription.
And if that isn’t enough free skill points for you, there is always the new variation on the Skilling Spree event going on, Skilling is Just a Means of Communication.
In this the daily task of blowing up NPCs has been changed, so now you get skill points for blowing up other players.
This event runs through to downtime on April 16, 2020.
So there are skill points to be had in New Eden.
