March 29, 2019 Free Character Skillpoint Weekend for Omega and... Alpha?

You have recently posted an event on March 29, 2019 that you are giving away free skill points over on the course of the weekend for alpha and omega accounts and have currently claimed 2 of the 3 free skill point reward myself and awaiting the 3rd and final reward). I am just confused because you are giving away free skillpoints for Alpha character/account but I(or rather WE considering other alpha accounts) cannot allocate the free skillpoint unless we “Alphas” convert to Omega Accounts. Is this event roughly explains this “Free” event? if it is, then theres no point even opening this topic and should be closed immediately with apologies. I am not asking for fairness or anything considering also that most Omegas considers Alphas “Freeloaders” and have no place for a game like this. But in My opinion should Alphas able to at least allocate those skillpoints even at alpha status? considering the fact that The event specifically advertised FREE skillpoint weekend for Omega “AND” Alpha account status’.

I have an Alpha account and had no problem applying the skillpoints - to a skill that Alphas can train.

ProTip - Try actually establishing the facts before ranting…

The OP right here is evidence that the whole alpha thing was a bad mistake. I award you no points, etc etc.

You can claim the skill points when you log in. You can ‘receive’ them on any character, Alpha or not, when you hit Alt-Y or use the Inventory->Redeem Items menu.

To ‘apply’ them you right-click on a skill you can train and use the ‘Apply Skillpoints’ menu from the pop-up.

Everybody enters a game new and doesn’t know how things work, at first, including you. I’d say your post is evidence that EVE is filled with short-sighted, troll jerks that enjoy driving new players away from the game so they can pretend they’re leet. But then that would make me as ignorant as you, so I won’t.

EVE has excellent people in it, and quite a few of them. Sadly, the other ones make for some very visible detraction from the game.

We love newbies, most of my EVE “career” has been about helping newbies. But we don’t like dumbs who whine before putting in any personal effort.

There’s a very distinct difference.

Are you over 5 million SP? Buy a daily injector.
Are you training a non-alpha skill? That is not allowed.
Alpha accounts have limitations, if you do not like it, plex or sub. You can then use those free skillpoints. You can also save them up for this day next year. In the meanwhile, try and save around $120 over the year. If you fail that try and ask others how they make over $120 into their entertainment budget.

True, but this is GD part of the forum and not “New Citizens Q&A”. So harsh answers are to be expected.

Hi, I have read all your comments. Yeap really harsh. But thats what is expected.

Admittedly YES I am a noob, Yes I am an ALPHA,and Yes I am a Freeloader. But this post also has merits if you try to think about it. The Only answers and reply here that partly answers this and I think it probably the closest is from Aedaxus - Yes I am near 5m sp limit and I am purely Alpha atm. Only thing it shows is yes i get a pop-up that I am in 5m sp limit. and probably this is about this 5m sp limit. Thank you for that answer, not what I think and expected but yeah Thank you. At least there are still players here that think some NOOB/ALPHA/FREELOADER post also has the right to be answered by facts, its harsh but at least they gave your “rant” with a decent answer.

Now that you have actually pointed something out = The dilemma of the post. WHat I had actually thinking is precisely this, considering im at alpha sp limit, does this free alpha skillpoint also is considered a “Daily Alpha Injector - somewhat?” so whats the point of giving Already 5m SP limit Alphas free but basically unuseable skillpoint? Again I am not asking or demanding something out of it, hell I AM ALPHA and just a gamer, what can I do?

By the way thanks also to Kezrai Charzal for some of it providing Defense on someone just trying to point out something.

I think to prevent other idiotic, gaming culture racism tainting this post, I think I read 1 or 2 answers enough thank you for those response/s. I would like to request forum officials to consider this post solved/and closed.

My previous post told you how to redeem and use the extra free skill points. You are not at the Alpha SP limit (at almost 5 million), you are at the Alpha training limit. Alphas can use up to 20M (ish) SP.

Redeem the points, right click a skill that is available to you, apply skillpoints. And yes, harsh answers aside, you really should do a little more research and reading of answers that are actually in your own thread, before posting a second time that they are unuseable.

And i have just tested on my ~50mil SP Alpha character (former omega) - free SP CAN be applied to skills that Alphas can use and that you dont have yet. So it is a soft limit of ~20 mil SP that are alpha-useable.

I said “You have one year, plan to budget $120.”, if that is not clear I imagine problems in getting the $120 by the end of this year. You should stop trolling and start earning. You wasted a lot of money with your post already. But, make sure not to blame your country as anyone in the world can potentially buy plex, most won’t bother.

Wow…

Eve is chalked full of really rude people. Even the “so-called” leadership could use some training in public relations. It has become so toxic that I predict a continued and escalating downward spiral. :hospital:

Yeah, people that create threads like “Literally the stupidest …” or call people “numbnuts” are quite toxic indeed.

So your thread wasn’t that constructive and got locked. Life goes on.

People these days seem to think that it’s fine to drop a stinking turd on the rug, and that the reaction from others should be complimentary in nature.

“ooh that’s a visual feast, a nice shade of brown and a goodly amount of steam; the aroma is also quite pleasing, with subtle hints of elder flower and rose hips.”

To which I say GTFO.
