its just such a logical thing to do when you suddenly get free to play alts . a catalyst ganker does not even need the full 5.5 million skill points . all my eve life i have avioded having negative standing alts on my paid account because i wanted to fight on the good side lol .

but no its like so totally obvious the way to go come november is fire up an alt account fill it full of gankers and try reap the rewards . there will be no negative impact on you. just frree loots and giggles all for no subscription

i cant wait till november lol

So you want to fight on the good side ?

Then just gank the gankers.

Why not ganking on your main? You know tags can repair everything ...

I'm my own NPC alt.

Yup, ganking, believe it or not, takes work.

We'll see, but I predict it will be only a "for a time" thing.

i disagree the incentive being an alpha is to get the max outta your 5.5 million skill points . enjoy yourself and ccp hopes for alpha upgrades to omega

just how many new pirates and gankers will be born as people experiment will be exciting to see

Allowing Alphas to multibox and turn off their safety in highsec has considerable potential for abuse. Perhaps CCP can give them the ability to do one or the other but not both. I.e. if they multibox, their safety will be locked yellow. If they are logged in alone they can set it to red. It will be a bit more effort for the developers but it allows Alpha state clones to experience both aspects of the game - just not at the same time.

In that case we should lock alphas out of being able to mutibox while operating a mining laser.

Or just lock them out of multiboxing entirely. Such a novel idea right?

There is not 1 good reason alphas need to multibox. None.

Sounds good but don't use standard fit's when you gank, try some comedy fits, it's more fun.

Frankly I'm looking forwards to the army of AFK campers that are about to descend upon nullsec.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

AFK Campers? I thought CCP locked alphas out of cloaking devices?
