After reading the proposed changes in December, I still feel CCP is just papering over what needs to happen - how the game should function, in relation to Alpha/Omega clone capability:
Whatever skills your character earns, (while subscribing as an Omega clone), you keep.
As a returning player, I cannot currently afford a perpetual subscription to this game, therefore it’s meaningless paying anything AT ALL, if I lose all the additional capability once the subscription runs out and the char/s return/s to Alpha state.
With this change, all characters/accounts that were previously subscribed are now viable, (for returning players!) and ANY subscription, of any length, (paying CCP ANY amount of money), is VIABLE for new players/characters in the long term. If subscribing for one month (£10) is all I need for my chars to be able to use BC’s then I’d think about it - irrespective of the further plans you have for December, which IMO, wouldn’t be as necessary with this change.
