I would just like to add that you definitely should not put points up to 9 in Tier 1 or 2 except for with things that aren't affected by any higher level skill. For example, it may be worth putting 9 into Attack Vectors since there isn't another more efficient way of increasing critical percentages. The last increases in Tier 1 skills are an extremely inefficient use of points.
From Tier 3 onward the drop off in skill increase per skill point is less. However if you are finding you don't have enough points to go around, cutting back to 5 or so in multiple traits can save you a lot of points without lowering your skills a lot.
Also, if you're pretty much totally ignoring one area, such as ground combat, it may be worth putting at least the first 2 points into the skills as you get a large increase for very few skill points.
In any case, thanks for posting this guide.
