    Rather, it's horizontal after a couple months. Even as a fan of the game I freely admit that the first few months of the game are not worked out very well. I'd say it's one of the worst aspects in fact.

    Also this. Even when you have ships and skills, which themselves can consume a fair bit of time, the actual fun stuff takes a long time. Fleet warfare is a lot of fun overall but if you don't have a few hours to set aside to it you probably won't even see a fight.

    Then you're doing it wrong. You can essentially max out your proficiency in most niches in 6 months, can become sanely proficient in most niches in 1 month. (In the former case and sometimes the latter case you have to already be sanely proficient in the core skills, which takes a few months too.) This isn't true of shit like cap ships but you don't need those to be involved in pvp.

    It is pretty vertical in the first few months, though, which is a definite problem. I'd also say that "6 months per niche" like I mentioned above is excessive, but it wouldn't cause you to not be pvp viable after six years, or even two years.
