Training 2X faster than what?

I just looked at my training and it is still the same as it was before.
It is not any faster.

It isn't faster BUT i guess that the ALPHA will be 2X slower. So training with an alpha will take about 3 month instead
of 6 weeks - normal time - with Omega.

It would have been nice if CCP had given the subscription payers a bit of a boost, but they havent.

MOST ANNOYED.

Not sure why you had that expectations. It was always made clear they train slower and omega stays the same

Yup, it's the alphas that are running at half training speed. But "train skills at normal speed!" doesn't make for good marketing to get the Omega sub sold, hence the play with words.

You're annoyed because you didn't get more than what you had yesterday, for no reason at all?

You're a miner aren't you?

I woke up this morning and my bank account didn't magically have double the money it had yesterday.

Will the indignities never cease?!?

I read through the specs of what a new upgrade will do. But don't read in details.
I like the surprise of what it could have been and what it actually is.

But it is what it is.
And I do some mining. LOL

The phrasing might be a bit confusing, but it's as follows:

Alpha accounts train at half the speed of pre-Ascension skill training
Omega accounts train at double the speed of Alpha accounts

As such, Omega accounts train the exact same speed post-Ascension as pre-Ascension... Alpha accounts, will train at half speed.

Hope this clears things up!

It's called marketing.

Stating u will train at half te speed as alpha, isn't very appealing at all P

Anyways, the part where they were trying to get older players to return is pointless... i activated an alt, and it can't train anything, cuz i allready have all the basic skills at full. and flying in cruiser sized and smaller? don't be silly, those are for noobs.

So, either i sub my alt or mothball him again, cus atm he's as usefull as a noob unless i wan't to use him as a suicide alt.

Anyways, this makes the half speed/full speed training thing mute, cuz i can't train anything anways Lol

Yes yes, i know, i get to 'play' for 'free', but what point is there, if he's not even usefull as an alt?

This happened to me once tho. Got a paycheck of exactly my previous balance. Was funny in it's own way.

Apparently i seem to have missed the part in the patchnotes which states u can't login an Omega and an Alpha at the same time, so it's all pointless anyways Lol

So i paid for two accounts for years and years, now i want to activate my 2nd acount once more, but EVE won't let me?


LMFAO!!! This entire F2P thing is completely useless.Lol

Offcourse not, a cap on the number of accounts running would make sense, but i just didn't realize they would cap it at 1.

*shrugs*

LOL, knowing eve, your prolly right! *imagines some people running several pc's running a dozen Alpha Alts*

Training at two times the speed of an Alpha, which means that an Alpha trains at half the speed of an Omega.

it would be cool if many players bug report this Lol
It says '2x' but my current speed is the same. Something is wrong....

Or make support team answering questions like this.

On the other hand CCP is already bad at fixing bugs and supporting customers What?
