Skill training when Omega expires

Previously when your subscription ran out, assuming you had a long skill in the queue, your skills continued to train for 3 days before stopping.

How does that work now? When my Omega becomes an Alpha, what happens?

a) Skill queue immediately becomes an "Alpha" skill queue, whereby if the skills are not Alpha skills they will stop training immediately, or if they are Alpha skills then they will carry on training at 1x speed rather than 2x, and only skills that begin training within 24 hours will be trained?

b) Carry on as before Ascension, queue will continue as normal at 2x speed for 3 days, before either stopping completely or switching to Alpha mode as above?

c) Something in between?

d) Nobody knows, try it and report back!

I have an alt that had 12 days left on a skill that went alpha, it kept the skill in queue but stopped the training

If you could train on free accounts and then extract that SP to sell for ISK that completely crash the extractor market. If you are SP framing then that should be the very last thing you would want.

I'm not talking about farming on free accounts, I'm talking about the 3 free days of skill training you used to get on PLEXed accounts after the PLEX expired, before plugging the next one.

It made it a LOT more profitable in the past, I guess not too many people knew about it though... Blink

Now skill training drops all non-Alpha skills when the PLEX expires, so 30 days of PLEX really does only buy you 30 days of skill training, not 33 like before.
