The differance between IRON and some rag tag alliance is the fact that we will fight with no reguard to our own nations. Putting the greater good of the whole before ourselves. Victory for all or they will have to fight us to the last point of infa in the last IRON nation. Every so often someone(s) will come around and exemplifie this. Living up to the IRON Values. It gives me great pleaser to baptize three of IRON's up and comers.

You won't need anything super fast but I wouldn't recommend anything below 10Mbps

What have they stripped from it? Or are they going on the basis of reduced XP gain for the free players?

The shared universe meant that Eve didn’t feel like it was safe to offer the same sort of accounts that other free-to-play games provide, since the in-game economy could be wrecked if the balance was wrong.

 
Instead, unlike many free-to-play games, the full scope of Eve’s universe is open to every player, paying or not. An Alpha Clone can go anywhere in the world, join any group, and achieve any objective. Instead, the limitations are focused on speed and efficiency: the clones take longer to learn skills, and don’t have access to some of the higher-powered ships in the game.
 
“Access to trading, industry, and exploration skills will allow Alpha pilots to explore the vast, mysterious universe, harvest its raw materials, fulfil their shrewd economic dreams, and construct the war machines that make Eve battles famous,” CCP says.

you can only use light scout drones, 'tier 1' ships (venture, firgates (no destroyers) and and the first industry ships) and more than half of the skill tree is blocked off.

Um no completely wrong. Probably should double check before saying that. You can fly 8 frigates, 2 destroyers, 6 cruisers. They are limited to your starting race. Gallente and Caldari are the current best. Caldari is shields and gallente are armor. Mining wise yes the venture is the only thing you can fly to mine, for now. With that said you can still make a lot of money mining in a venture.  Course you could also cruiser mine but the venture is good at what it does. You are correct about the drones though which is sad but whatever, subscription players should have a couple advantages anyway. 

 

The skillpoint gain is much less.

 

 

Edit: I forgot to mention that there is also one battlecruiser called the Gnosis that anyone can fly and then there will be another destroyer similar to that coming out soon.

And so you know, these ships are sufficient for you to fly in all of the newbie friendly alliances and their fleets.

Cool to hear about Eve doing this to allow new players the chance to try out the game. I think before you could only play for free for like 14 days, or something like that.

 

I unfortunately never had the time to play Eve competitively and it seemed a little boring to me when I first tried it out. I think the most entertaining aspect for me, was reading about the factions over the years breaking records, in regards for having massive ship battles going on for days.


The idea of war is not to die for your country, it's to make the enemy die for his.

no worries, and it came to my attention that medium drones can be used by alphas.
