Many of you (very many in fact) are familiar with Dual Character Training. We are now offering the option to increase that number by one, thus allowing you to have three Skill Queues (remember that each character only has one Skill Queue) active at the same time. Just right click a PLEX in EVE to access the option of having another Skill Queue active or visit Account Management for other payment options. Note that having an additional Skill Queue active will not allow you to advance a character...

Hello experienced pod pilots of New Eden! Do you remember when you were a rookie faced with the vast sophistication that is EVE Online? Did you finish up the tutorials and then found yourself stumped what to do next? Were you confused about the difference between a Warp Disruptor and a Warp Scrambler?

There is perhaps no MMO community which is as creative as any in the world. There are many who write about EVE Online. There are others who create wonderful EVE related art.
