I made this for my own use. Thought I'd share it with everyone, as it can quickly help you discern which race would suit you best.

Quick Alpha Race Skill comparison chart

Since there is a lot of information, please magnify it so it's legible! Shocked

Hope this helps.

Big smile

Notes:
1. Since the skills don't exactly match up, I've color-coded them to help you match them up.
2. The skills that are DIFFERENT or UNIQUE per race have a black border around their cells.
3. Maxed skills are highlighted with black box with white text.
4. A skill total is presented at the bottom.
5. All skills data was acquired from Eve's own dev-blogs:

PS. I quickly uploaded it to tinyurl site - if that is an issue, can someone recommend a site that will not cause problems for Eve forums. If there are any mistakes or omissions, please let me know. Thanks.

They should balance it out so everyone gets an equal number. Lower some min/cal skills or let amarr and gallente get 1 more rank in a few skills

Amarr could get some more cap levels or armor layering/resistances.

The trained skill ranks don't matter so much. A level 2 skill for example has more skillpoints than a level 1 skill trained to the same rank. The skill sheet doesn't show that, so it's hard to tell if the amarr actually get less than the others.

And even beyond that, the most important thing is what you can do with those skills. As I see it, at the moment you can just do much more with the gallente skill set, because they simply have the strongest ships within alpha limitations: Tristan, Catalyst, Algos, Vexor - all very strong ships. They also have a wide variety of haulers, they have good drone skills and especially with bad gunnery skills, drones are very strong. The ability to launch 5 drones that Gallente and Amarr get on it's own is pretty good, as opposed to 3 for Caldari and Minmatar. Both have it quite rough, as they get split skills they can't even properly use at the same time in most cases. Those being Turrets and Missiles, while Gallente and Amarr will be able to profit from Drones and Guns on one ship just fine. But that's just my first thoughts on the matter, ymmv.
