Alpha and Omega Clone

Updated

Starting with the Ascension expansion (15.11.2016), players are able to access EVE Online openly through Alpha Clone state. The Clone state will be determined by your account status. Characters on accounts with active game time (subscribed, from PLEX or any other available payment method) will be granted Omega state, while Alpha state will be given to all characters on any account without game time.

 Alpha Clone – The Alpha Clone state is the new base state for all characters, providing open access to the EVE Online service and enabling the free exploration of the New Eden Universe. It is available to any character in New Eden at any time. Alpha Clones will be able to train a specific set of skills including tech one Frigates, Destroyers and Cruisers for their faction, along with essential weapons and modules.

 Omega Clone – The Omega Clone state provides broader access to the features of the EVE Online service and will become active as soon as any game time is added to the account in any capacity. Characters on such an account will have unlimited skill access with increased skill training speed, as well as access to all other game features unlocked by these skills.

Upgrading an account from Alpha to Omega is effective immediately and will not require to log out and back in.

If the Omega game time on an account lapses and the account reverts back to an Alpha state, any trained skills and skill levels outside the Alpha skill set limits of the character will become inactive on the next log in. They will become available again as soon as the account receives additional game time and changes to the Omega state again.
