Everything about this game seems so awesome! The building, different world rules (full drop PvP y'all!), EVEish account/crow/pilot progression. Damn.
I don't have the time to play alpha, nor much motivation to get in at this early stage, but I'm considering the biggest contributor bundle just to support them and the extra goodies.
The only downside I can think of is that the system, exactly like EVE, will promote multiple accounts, with the way training is handled. I still run 3 accounts in EVE, and to me personally it's not a big deal, but still.
Though I guess that's personal preference IF you want to be able to play several vessels with high skills. But I can easily see having a caster and a melee account etc, depending how the trees are formed.
