Planetary - Interactions, Sience, these are just one of the few things alpha cannot do. Which is strange.
I would see the idea that an alpha shound’t be able to do these things so it wound’t achieve enough isk to plex its account everymonth, but this already happens.
Explorations and High Sec incursions are the first thing that comes to mid, there are already ways to plex your account from day one, so why not give new player a taste of everything before asking them to buy Omega.
As someone who never subbed (and only PLEXed to train the expanded alpha skillset on my main) I can say: Give an inch and they'll take a mile. I was even satisfied by the original alpha limits before the expanded skillset was even introduced. Some people just know no bounds I guess.
Alphas are already getting a free trial lunch paid for by all us Omega players. It’s more than enough of a free lunch for them to decide if they like the restaurant and want to actually buy a meal. No, the free meal should not be expanded…that is taking the mickey out of all the paying customers.
Alphas can pvp. Be critical t1 logistics in fleets. They can do Incursions/Top Level PVE.
Why Alphas can’t do indy? In my opinion it is a activity that is done best with multiple characters. Some may argue it can be done solo on 1 account.
Abyssal deadspace sites. WH combat sites.
They are not missing out on industry in EVE. It’s a very complex activity that needs real dedication to make money off of. By time a person is Curious about PI/Indy they should already have the basic foundation of PVE skills/PVP before throwing money into EVE. That’s how I see it progressing.
And there are PLENTY of guides on anything in EVE so any alpha can make an informed choice about Omega. EVE is a game really based on teaching yourself, researching established guides, and asking friends in game about various activities. What you put in EVE is what you get out. I hardly think letting Alphas do PI/Indy will make a world of difference.
who made this and why it’s hard enough trying to go to the next ship as an alpha and i feel like they should tell people that you can’t do that as an alpha as it took me a bit to get one and then find out i could not use it but I’m fine without it so chill dude
