Since at least half my game play is related to Industry.
- A downgrade to an Alpha would restrict me to; ore or gas mining a Venture.
- No ability to invent or produce Tech2 goods.
- Limited to tech1 haulers
- Extremely limited production queue.
- No access to Planetary Interaction.
I could still try my hand at level 4 Mining Missions, but to complete 45,000 m³ in a Venture without boost is at least an hour and half.
As a mission runner, my damage dealer is sentry drones. Whilst I would retain battleship access, it is virtually worthless for me to change over to an alternative weapon platform.
No cloaking, so there goes Wormhole explanation.
Is this what being a Bitter Vet means? Too many Damsels and too many asteroids?
It's not about the actual cost of subscribing.
I have kept myself going through goal setting. But I have clocked off the ones within my reach and desire. Perhaps within the time, CCP might enlighten the faithful with a vision of things to come.
I have also previously done "skill queue online" as well, that's always Door #2.
