OK so almost a year ago I posted about this alpha thing. I failed miserably at my goal to fund a plex with an Alpha. Mostly because I did not commit and invest time. Also because well alphas were that tenth of crack to lure people to sub an omega. Seriously one race, and cruiser is a tenth of crack in EvE.
So with the last expansion I re-downloaded the game and went about figuring out my old account passwords. Logged in a Zombinutz and went about seeing what I could fly. I was excited that my rattlesnake was flyable now. Sadly the T2 cruise launchers and hardeners were not usable in my Alpha state. Hmm..faction launchers and hardeners then....bugger those went up since I last bought them. So more like a ounce of crack now which is good I guess. The good news is I cannot fly a mining ship worth my time, so there is that. So after about half an hour I decided that it was still not going to work with my current Work/Life/EvE balance to do much with out re-subbing.
I did leave the game installed for now. I am about to take some "Me" time away from work and that normally means games get more love. This means I will explore more Alpha options with some of my old pilots. If for some reason this turns into something worth sharing. Hell I'll post it up. Who knows, might be less than a year between posts...
Until next time,
