Read the devblog. TL;DR though is that non-paying accounts will have reduced training speed, limited only to cruiser-and-down Tech 1 skills related to their character's faction, and will not include skills for cynos, cloaks, etc. This race-specific T1 limited skillset should be known as "Alpha Clone status"

If a normal account unsubs, all non-Alpha Clone skills will be disabled.

A maxed-out Alpha Clone account will have about 5M SP.

So it's free but even if you have a trained char they will have only 5mil sp if you log into it and haven't subbed? Seems desperate and won't attract the old player base come back but might help retain some new players I suppose. How did the novelty items turns out? Obv shit to warrant making bit free for all. I may have logged in again occasionally if they made it free but prob just to shoot the shit more than 'work' at it again

CZ has a pretty good write-up on it as well.  http://crossingzebras.com/cz-minutes-oh ... ody-panic/

My favorite part is towards the bottom. "... Expect to be damped to shit, ECMd to Netflix-mode, painted to the size of a small moon and TDd to virtually zero tracking. This raises the bar and means more work to stay competitive in the conflicts that matter. ..."

My only complaint about the alpha clones is they cannot use tech 2 hardeners or guns. If ccp can fix that then they will be truly viable, otherwise it's gonna feel kinda pay2win...just imagine amarr without scorch  :-\

when they figure out a way to generate revenue it will gradually raise the skill cap or remove the penalty altogether
