EVE Online's Season of Skills is ongoing, and with it comes challenges to test the skills of New Eden's Capsuleers. 

A contest set with three different stages, Capsuleers are challenged to in its first stage to see how fast someone can take out an NPC ship from docking while flying a Tier 1, non-faction frigate hull. 

The first stage of the challenge is live now and runs through August 9th at 11 UTC, after which the second stage in the Skilling Spree will begin. Each stage needs to be documented via video and sent into CCP Games. For this stage, each video must begin with the Capsuleer docked in either a station or Upwell structure. You can also submit as many videos as you'd like, but only your fastest time will be counted.

Capsuleers are competiting to win upwards of 1.5 Million Skill Points - no small amount in a game where it can take literal weeks to research and learn a skill. You can check out all the details on the EVE Online website here.
