the char that other people associate to you as a person when you log on.

A question I've thought about at least, 1 times.

Most know Tish as my main, it's the name I register on corp/alliance forums, TS etc etc and my other character is often called Tish's alt from corp mates etc.

However, my other character is older than Tish, but Tish has more skill points, both characters are flown an equal amount, they have complimenting skills, i.e. 1 character is all big ships across two races, the other is smaller ships, across three races, logistical skills, ewarefare skills etc etc

Tish was primarily the one used most often for PvP, these days that has reversed and my other char is used more frequently for PvP. It really doesn't matter which one I use as they're both equally useful.

To me neither character is a main, or an alt, they're both mains and they're used pretty much as a single main. Which character gets used is often dictated on the type of fleet, or action I need to do, I use which is best suited to it.

None the less Tish remains known to others as my 'main' and the other as his 'alt'.

The Main was a 1691 ton, iron sailing ship built by Russel & Company for the Nourse Line and launched in August 1884. ..

concerning CAOD a main is the character that represents the corp you are posting for. At least that is how I understood it.

I don't have alts just multiple mains Very Happy

But, providing you use Voice comms.

The character you choose to be on voice comms.
When someone say hey "insert name here" and you respond that is your main.

Is it possible to have no mains, just a bunch of characters on the server.
Yes

I have exactly one character on exactly one account, so it's pretty easy for me.

In general, though, I'd say it's the one you play the most or just the one that's your favorite.

If you were actually in the EVE universe, which of your characters would you be? That is your main.

The one you claim it to be, until further notice. Or the ones. It's highly subjective so no clear answer can be given.

your first character is your main in my book - its got the date you started eve - thus - your 'real' age.

Never considered that someone may have ever started a new account. Quit... came back? Sold a character? I wouldn't trust your judgment for anything Smile. Considering you seem to be unable to consider possiblites which don't fall in your own real of experience. You're one of those hard learners when it comes to getting ganked "but you learned that lesson" right?

As far as the forums are concerned no matter what character you post with noone will believe its your main.

So just roll a nub hauler alt to fetch you stuff out of high sec and use that for your forum posting pleasure safe in the knowledge that you are generating much tears from the "internets spaceships are serious business" crowd. Smile
