CCP gifting 50,000 skill points to EVE pilots due to downtime

Jef Reahard

CCP is ponying up 50,000 unallocated skill points as a way of saying thanks to EVE Online players who endured the game's extended downtime over the weekend. The firm took its Tranquility server cluster offline for much of June 2nd and portions of June 3rd in order to deal with a DDoS attack, which affected EVE and newly released PlayStation 3 shooter DUST 514.

The bonus skill points were distributed during today's Odyssey expansion deployment, and CCP says that all accounts except trials are included.
