Due to this, Omega Clone can expect more challenge in the game when Alpha Clones gets their hands on the said ships. CCP Games also confirmed that Alpha Clones will be able to choose and train skills related to any empire in the game. It will allow them to access and use several hybrid ships, such as the Machariel Battleship, which requires two empire related skills. The skill points that unsubscribed players can have will also increase to 20 million.
