Come on guys, don't go back on your words.

As far as I am aware the only people invited to the alpha were friends and people that often played dreadnought at places like pax etc. Didn't see alpha sign ups at any point.

From the various streams etc. it seems to heavily depend on the class, a dreadnought is going to be slowly moving through the battlefield like a naval ship, the corvette is going to be quickly flying around like a jet plane (but be quite fragile) looking for targets, artillery ship is basicly a sniper, tactical cruiser is your good old healer that sticks to the tank(dreadnought) with destroyers being the middle man between survivability and speed.

They did say there will be stuff like cosmetic skins that you will be able to buy(that won't have a effect on gameplay) during their stream, or something like that.
