So am I seeing this right, all my characters are back to square one and I have to re-apply my skill points? Like I remember how I was spec'd from months ago...

If you haven't played since many months ago then you have no choice except to respec because the entire skill tree has been changed.

I think it's sort of less unique and true to the series, but it's definitely easier to understand now (before you practically needed to read a tech manual to distribute your skill points).

You can't specc the same way anyway.

The skill system has changed too much.
You now habe to spend a minimum point in ground an space for example.
There are fewer skills total.
And the descriptions are easier to understand.
Try to think about which role you wish to fill and spend your points accordingly.

Even if you could remember, it wouldn't help, since the skills have all changed. Which is the whole reason you need to reskill anyway.

Thanks. Yeah it's been a while - a lot has changed. And yes before you needed a cheat sheet - LOL.

Surely there's a guide to the new point system somewhere?

Only STOWiki...

But if you simply click the skills in the skill overview, you now get a pretty good description on what each thing does.

It's been dumbed down so much that anyone who mastered the skill tree before, can now let his cat manage his skills with one paw tied to it's back and both eyes blind.

I wish when they did it though that you didn't have to spend all your points. First time I had to respec again after figuring out how things worked.
