I actually mostly agree with you. The one thing that gives me pause is the new skill cost inflation mechanic. Everyone is using the 2% atm... But if you're playing for say, 25 days, and earning 50 SPs a day, which is 2500 total.Those first 3 levels that aren't very efficient cost 6% inflation, which means they end up costing 150 points over time. So really the cost of each skill is quite a bit higher than the 2,5,10,20,30 it is atm. It's more like 30+ points per skill, even for the levels 1 to 3. This is the part that really bothers me. Basically feels like getting only 1-3 points is a waste, and I should get all 5 or not get any.

RE: Efficiency skills favour higher levels
Efficiency skills favour higher levels
So the efficiency skills (i.e. reduce resource cost ones) favour levels 4 and 5 a lot more over the others.
As you can see you're getting a 75% increase from 4 -> 5 but only a 25% increase from 0 -> 1. I feel like there's little reason to just stick with 2-3 points in an efficiency skill. The benefits from the last 2 points seem too large too to me.
