    Alpha clones are limited to 5 million SP in basic skills, so the rest of the SP becomes unuseable



    And to be fair you can already play for free via extractors if you don't want to train SP

    well to be fair, barrier to entry is frequently cited as the biggest problem with EVE

    i wouldn't expect a flood of new players right at the start, but this is a pretty good attempt solve that problem.

    i doubt ccp are expecting a sudden influx, but they're probably expecting a gradual increase of new players over time. could potentially snowball i guess.
    They are including "can the servers handle the pressure" in their q&a.

    They already said they could force safeties to Green on Alpha clones if ganking becomes a problem.

    Now gankers don't even have to worry about getting friends.
    They can just make clones.

    Oh, and the next time someone posts on a forum "get friends", people can just point to this dev blog.

    Stupidity on an epic scale.
    If suicide ganking is an issue they can always make the f2p clones safety green in high sec.

    REIGN OF THE ALTS.

    Multiboxing supreme.

    I think I could run 6 clients at once. With 6 Thrashers, I'll be invincible

    Maybe they could limit one account to one IP or machine ID. Then I'd actually play again.

    Yellow should be enough but it's good that they thought of this.

    I think I'd actually lose more ISK on trading sans the current skills than if I buy a PLEX every month despite only logging in for 3-4 minutes a day... meh

    Awesome update though.

    Edit: Hmm... this might increase the volume of demand for T1 small ship SKINs, nom nom nom.

    Doesn't that scream for RvB - Alpha Edition?

    They're going to wait for player feedback on whether or not the multi-account login restrictions of the current trial system should be retained for the alpha state clones? N+1 isn't a big enough part of the game already or anything.

    This entire concept just demonstrates how desperate CCP is truly getting.
    The true sub rate must have reached a critical threshold.

    They used to do this with trial accounts, you couldn't dualbox a trial account and paid account on a single machine.

    I've always heard this but I never had any problem doing it.

    I don't care if the ingame chat let me communicate with the holy spirits of my ancestors; you still have to pay the price that is the eve launcher
