I’m really excited to hear about “Completely new noon mining”.

Previously you couldn’t mine at noon due to downtime but this latest patch changes all that!

As someone who usually wakes around noon, noon mining sounds awesome.

Is that Premium Edition usable if you are already Omega (by a Plex) ?

How to know if we can use it or not ?

It’s a one time deal, so if you have never used it before, then you can now.

Hi, people! Could someone tell me if I can benefit for the offer of premium account if I was an active member (Omega) and now I am a Alpha? Thanks!

Yes, you can benefit from the Premium Edition, but only if you haven’t used a Premium Edition or Standard Pack before. That is the only limitation here, you can use these packs only once per account.


Thank you very much, CCP Phantom. I have this account for 11 years and I don’t know if I have used this offer or not. I will try it and if I can’t used, I will probably receive a refund. Thanks again.

Is there a way to be sure if one account has used this before?

so far so good…but i wish resource wars was less focused on mining, and more a mix of mining and combat… plus i wish it wasn’t limtied to 3 sites per empire at any given time…so hard to make it into a site

I’d like to know this as well.

I’ve found that even when I am prepared for Combat Mining, unless I go with friends, one of two things will happen:

1: I want to do one, but there is nobody to do it with, and I can’t complete it myself. And my friends are busy with something else or are otherwise indisposed.

2: I want to do one, but the site is full or almost done, and when we get in - if we get in - the site completes and we get no credit, and the people doing it disperse, and we can’t work with them to do a site when we need the numbers to get it done.

It’s aggravating at higher levels, and if these empires really need this ore, why not supplement us with miners of their own, if we can’t supply the numbers?


Login into your account on the main website and check out the “Transaction History”. If you used such a code on this account there should be an entry of it.


If you never purchased it before, you can purchase it and use it now, and will receive all items included in the pack, including omega even if you have omega (it just adds another month) on top of the plex and items.

This week on Mindclash we cover the Lifeblood PVE and where to get in on the action. Also coverage of the wars ongoing around the DRF and the main topic looks at the layoffs at CCP.

Join us every week on twitch at 7pm PST, 10pm EST at

If they would open the alpha clients up to being able to do more resource Collection IE mining barges then more payers would stick around and delete the one account alpha loggon at a time and the game will explode with new subscriptions … And or do something about the billion and half plex , cost so the players who used to play to pay for there accounts would come back !!!

Hope it is not true you are laving CCP, but if it is THANK YOU for all the posts about what happens in EVE. You will be missed… very much
