It's well known that the EVE Online Forums are full of whiners! CCP unleashed a wild crowd of EVE Loonies on the forums when it announced that it would disable the ability to train skills on a suspended account.
This ability is - or actually, was - known as ghost training.
In EVE, characters train in real-time. A skill may take just a few minutes to train, or up to over a month to complete - a calendar month that is! Ghost training players would start to train say a 30-day skill on an account about to expire, then re-activate that account say, 28 days later. They'd conveniently get a free month of training on that character. It seems this practice was starting to look like a revenue-loss for CCP, and so, logically they changed their policy.
No active subscription, no training, thus no more ghost training.
I, along with my fellow EVE bloggers (Kirith, Ga'len, Ebonezer and Karox), agree with CCP's decision on this. Which isn't the case with the EVE Online forum trolls and their conspiracy-theory-lunatic-buddies. But we all knew they'd go banana over this didn't we!
It was about time CCP went Ghostbusters! And if these whiners threatening to leave New Eden over this actually do, I say good riddance!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got some ghost zapping to do!
