Reduced posting ahead

As I mentioned previously, I am one of the alpha/beta testers for Albion Online, and the final beta test has just started, with release being scheduled for 17th July.

This means that I, and the other testers, are all busy working out or builds and strategies for when things go live. While interest will fade over the course of a few weeks - there is no point building up excessive progress that is only going to be wiped - in the short term I'm just not playing as much Eve.

Eve being Eve, though, I'm actually still logging in every day, but it's mostly to reset the colonies, check on the citadel, and run a few sites. That way, when I'm ready to jump back in, I have a nice little bit of extra cash.

And if anyone is interested in Albion, feel free to buy an account through this link. This is effectively Albion's version of a Eve's buddy invite. The chance to buy in as a 'Founder' will end once the game goes live, so if you like that kind of thing, you may want to act sooner rather than later. 

Some of the benefits of being a Founder are cosmetic, but the you are also getting gold (the Albion equivalent of PLEX) at a discounted rate, as well as an early start to the final game. It's this last benefit that's the real kicker, enabling you to claim land or start industry before the rest of the pack. With so many Eve players in the game, you can imagine how much planning is done within each guild on how best to leverage this advantage!
