The threat is real. Drifters and the Triglavians are assaulting New Eden, coupled with the blackout causing ‘chaos’ in null security space. Pilots are advised to skill up and prepare for the oncoming assault, the defence of New Eden, and a face-off against a number of threats.
CONCORD have found themselves struggling to adapt and react to these new and emergent threats, and they have turned to capsuleers who can tip the balance once again. To aid capsuleer pilots with this mission, CCP have introduced the Season of Skills, a multi-stage summer event designed to enhance our capability to fight against these new dangers. The Season of Skills began on July 15, and will continue with different promotions until August 26.
The current login promotion began on July 17, and will run through to July 25. This will be very similar if you have been playing regularly over the last year or so; if you log in each day after downtime to the character screen, you will be able to claim bonus skill points. All players get rewards, with Alpha players able to claim up to 200,000 skill points for free and Omega players getting an additional up to 450,000 skill points. Additionally, if you are an Omega player, you can claim up to two Cerebral Accelerators to help speed up your training.
As a reminder, as long as you claim rewards each day, you can subscribe at any point during the week and receive the Omega rewards for all the days you have claimed, and if you start on the day this article goes out (July 18), you can still get access to the full rewards on offer.
Fight for New Eden
CONCORD also needs you to go out into space and help push back the Triglavian threat currently rampaging around High Security space. This next event will run from the 24th of July to the 21st of August, and you need to get out and killing the Invasion NPCs. In return, CONCORD will provide players with 10,000 skill points for destroying certain NPCs, as well as 50,000 skill points for taking on more challenging threats. Use these points to help build yourself up and fight even more.
As if that’s not enough, we get ourselves another bonus skill point weekend where logging in each day from August 23 through 26 will help net you even more skill points, earning up to another 75k as an Alpha and up to 250k as an Omega player.
Now, if you’re reading about how many more skill points you’ll be getting in the coming month, and you have no idea what you should to do with them all, then worry not. CCP have a suggestion for you – take a look into the Magic 14, which are fourteen core skills that help support every ship in the game. If you can’t figure out what to train, or you simply haven’t got these skills to level V yet, they are a very good start.
