Eve Echoes may be a great sci-fi RPG for mobile, but its Omega Clone subscription service isn’t particularly clear – the description of Eve Echoes‘s Omega Clone doesn’t really explain what it does. Netease also don’t give an explanation of the difference between Basic Omega and Standard Omega, and don’t explain Cognitive Neuroscience. That’s why we decided to create an Eve Echoes Omega guide, giving you all the info about the different levels of monetisation, and help with choosing which, if any, is best for you.
Eve Echoes is honestly complex enough without having to worry about this stuff, so hopefully this article will help you decide whether or not either subscription is for you,
For more tips on getting started, we have an Eve Echoes race list to help you make that first choice, and a regular Eve Echoes guide for all of the choices that follow! We also have some useful tips and tricks for Eve Echoes mining, for those who want to make plenty of ISK in the early game.
everything in our eve echoes omega guide:
Alpha Clone is the most basic form of in-game monetisation, which is to say, it’s free.
Everyone starts Eve Echoes with Alpha Clone, and this is what you get:
- Access to the ITC market in high and low sec regions
- A skill training speed of 30 points per minute
- Free skill points when not training are produced at 50% speed
- A range of ships
But here is what you don’t have access to:
- The contracts function, which allows for delivery and item exchange
- Ships at tech level 8
- A fair number of skills
This is the next level up – Eve Echoes Basic Omega Clone is the cheapest subscription, costing you $4.99 (£4.69) per month.
This is what Basic Omega gets you:
- Your skill training rises to 35 points per minute
- Free skill points produced when not training increases to 70%
- The storage for free skill points is increased
- More ships and more skills
This is one step up from Basic Omega. Eve Echoes’s Standard Omega Clone costs you $12.99 (£11.99) per month, and gives you some added benefits, but it’s important to note that it doesn’t include the same benefits as basic. Here’s what you get:
- Your skill training rises to 55 points per minute
- Free skill points produced when not training increases to 80%
- The storage for free skill points is increased – more than basic
- More ships and more skills
Cognitive Neuroscience in Eve Echoes is a one-off purchase that grants you a bonus to skill training speed, which is useful when you’re just starting out, or looking to make quicker progress.
Here are the three levels of Cognitive Neuroscience:
- Cognitive Neuroscience: 5% skill training speed buff, costs 55 AUR ($3 approx or 2,750,000 ISK)
- Advanced Cognitive Neuroscience: 5% skill training speed buff, costs 165 AUR ($7 approx or 8,250,000 ISK)
- Expert Cognitive Neuroscience: 5% skill training speed buff, costs 825 AUR ($30 approx or 41,250,000 ISK)
As these buffs stack, the price increases with each further one you get. You can buy AUR in the New Eden store.
If you want to know which Eve Echoes Omega benefits are better when talking about Basic Omega vs. Standard Omega, then these are some points that are worth bearing in mind:
- Do you want to pay to increase how fast you progress in the game? If so, how fast do you want to progress? Basic gives a medium boost, standard gives more, both together give the most
- The speed at which you train a skill doesn’t necessarily enhance your play experience of a game – you might just prefer to buy some AUR instead, and spend your money on a fun ship skin
- You can purchase both Basic Omega and Standard Omega together in a combined pack, for a cheaper price
- If you don’t want to commit to something month-by-month, a Cognitive Neuroscience chip is a good one off purchase that gives you a little boost
