I recently decided the constant alt-tabbing, and 370mil/month just wasn't worth it, so I'm back to being a single-character player.


This.

I've had up to four accounts running at once and it's far more trouble than I believe it to be worth. On the up-side, I did manage a healthy profit by selling my alts on the bazaar. Laughing That's about the only thing I do with an alt account these days: train up a character purely for sale (or re-sale).

This is an alt and i have a main. I used to only have a main but having an alt, even on the same account, still has uses.

does anyone else play this game with just 1 toon only or am i just deluding myself in trying to think you can enjoy all aspects of eve just with 1 toon

You can enjoy everything. You just can't specialize a lot if you train dispersed so it will take a very long time until you'll be very good at one thing, let alone at a lot of things. Skilltraining is just very, very slow in EVE.

And well the least you can do is make a forum alt!!

I use another toon on the same account to control my trade orders and contracts in different trade hubs, while i'm 50 jumpes away =)

of course

my philosophy is that my character is my real avatar in the world of game not only a toon/tool. So there cant be more "me" than one in one game.

Ive spent like an hour with my gf to make my char look like me in rl (i believe ive done it right - my gf when seeing my character always says "oh sheet, he really does look like you". My char name is the name i am using in every game/chat.

I value maximum of honesty and visilibity and no matter what i adress people always as me and i always make my intentions clear at the start.

Having alts if ones intentions are clear is okay imo and i respect people with more than one accounts unless mthey use them for hiding something (alt forum posting, corp thiefs, long term corp devious scheming, ninjas, etc.).

I saw some guys saying they post with alts... really people you are so low...

I have zero "toons".

I have exactly one character.

BTW, I really wish these forums censored the word "toon". I find it fare more distasteful than **** or **** or **** or any of those words.

EDIT: Actually I have one character on Duality for testing the new player experience, but it will, of course, disappear when the next mirror happens. But on Singularity, I have only one character--she is my alter-ego in New Eden and I have no desire to make another.

If I could make any single change to EVE, it'd be that everyone would be limited to one character only. It's just a dream, but it's a nice one.

Agreed, it's a silly word ...

And one character would be nice but it would make life a lot harder (and restricted/boring). And next to that, you just can't prevent people using more accounts anyway. EVE is really designed to cater a many account way of playing (never seen "power of two" advertisements in any other game and in my opinion EVE has the largest multi account population of any ptp game) and I don't just mean cyno alts or highsec trade alts and neutral repper alts but just the time it takes to train and specialize in more than one way.

It's very easy to play with just one alt, I have three, but for the most part they don't really interact too much. I have a combat main, cap alt, and logi alt.


Lol.

I can stop smoking if I wanted to, I just don't want to right now ;)

As for me, I have 3 chars and I enjoy playing all 3 and doing stuff that requires multiple chars with them. I wouldn't want to limit myself to one char ever again.

I wish the forum censored everyone who had issues with the word toon.

Now HTFU and get over it.

Ontopic, I only got one account with one char on it, since real men have no alts and post with their main Cool
Downside as cap pilot is that you are always reliant on corpies/alliancies for cynos.

I have been playing with 1 character on 1 account since i started in 2004.
Its never really held me back from enjoying the game, sure there are some things that i need to turn to other people to help me with, such as make cyno's for me to move my capitals, or helping out if i find a nice juicy highend plex, or scouting a gate so i can move a few bils worth gear into lowsec etc.
But if u find yourself a good corp there is no need for multiple accounts unless u really want to start using supercapitals, or ofcourse want to have spais in other alliances.

I have 2 other 800k sp character on my account purely for keeping near market hubs to check prices and put up sell orders etc.
It just takes longer specialise in multiple fields with 1 character. You can't get really good at industry AND combat with 1 charater without alot of years of training.
Thats why i have spent most my time in eve training combat skills, so now i can fly all races of subcaps at lvl5 skills, and in recent years i finally turned to getting carriers for lowsec-0.0 logistics and now have 2 races of carrier skills and 1 race of dread.

Don't let having 1 account hold you back. Where 1 guy might be able to do something solo with a bunch of alts, you can have more fun by bringing a few friends along and chat sh*t on comms whislt your at it.

You do realize that these two statements are contradictory right?

I quite recently dropped from multiaccount,multicharacter down to single account and one (well two) characters (the other is just my corp ceo alt)

This game as it is, just isn't worth multiaccounting anymore, nullsec is supercap-online, lowsec is rather dead bar few areas and well... highsec is the vacation spot with the annoying kids (orphanage/privateers/what not).

I use all 3 chars on my account, but it's just for practical reasons.

My main is an outlaw so I'm locked out of highsec, I use the 2nd char for resupplying me in lowsec, and the 3rd for making isk in highsec through some ninja salvaging and lev 4's.

I have been playing for 2+ years with only one character.Yes you can make more ISK,yes you can train two different things at the same time but still you will have double expenses and you can train those skills with your main anyway no need to have a "Mining alt" or a "pve alt" just do it all in one.


The only real need I can see for alts is if you are a capital pilot in which case I consider having your independence(cyno mechanics)is a must.

No alts or second accounts here...though I can see the benefits in certain cases, I just don't know that it would bring the same meaning to the game to have a bunch of throw-away characters. I can see maybe having a market watching alt...but that's about it for me.
