First of all, despite my discomfort, I just want to express a point of view.
Right now, i play eve casually (you know, other games out there, not so much time), therefore i am an alpha player. I paid a lot for this game already, and this game is pretty old, we all know, so…
I am ok with Omega restrictions to some Ships, specifically the hardcore or endgame ships like Nightmare or Tech II ships.
The recent changes that allow you to use some battleships are really a good idea! (although I only use cruisers since I usually do combat sites / exploration in low sec) BUT… I really hate not getting a skill benefit bonus that I had already trained when i paid for omega time, like Amarr cruiser V. In fact, I would not mind paying for an omega account from time to time just to get some skills trained and then enjoy these skills bonuses while on alpha, since, anyway, there are omega restrictions to the use of ships and therefore even if you have the skills requisites you can’t fly them.
I understand that this model is necessary for skills such as trade or PI but it just make you SAD when you can already fly a ship (no omega restriction ship) and you can’t even get the full benefit from skills (you already trained) being even more penalized.
Oh, and i want to report a ux issue related to the omega warning in the skill training UI.
When a skill isn’t allowed at all (not even level 1) the UX message says: Requires omega to USE.
When a skill only allows to level 3 or below says: Requires omega to TRAIN until level 3.
The message should be “Requires omega to TRAIN and BENEFIT until level 3”.
Restrict the use of ships. Okay.
Restrict skill training. Okay.
Do not benefit from skills you trained in omega when you already pilot a omegaa restricted ship. Too severe.
