The only alt I have is for forum posting... and staying in my wh so I can always find the way back.

Other than that, I can enjoy everything with only one. So far.

You don't need an alt. Recently I've only been using mine for the fleet bonuses.

It's not required but it does help you focus on two different area at the same time.

Also it's easier to make money if you have two characters.

I spend most of my time on one character, even though I have many accounts. I spend less time multi boxing now that I have an active corp of competent people to play with :)

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.

Hi Oosel,

I am posting on my MAIN character, and to answer your question(s) you CAN enjoy all aspects of Eveonline without the headaches of having more than one character. Even tho it may seem like it would be more fun with more than a main character I have come to find out it's more manageable with just one and just concentrate on skills that I need for now.

I enjoy industry as a miner and even in mission running and 0.0 ops as well with my corpmates and alliance. Sure, an alt may be nice sometimes but I see no real need especially when you cannot skill an alt on your main account while your skill training is active on your main character. It really in my opinion defeats the purpose of having alts unless you want to add another account to train an alt there full time as well.

I have seen enough members of the community here do such a thing and feel it's just a waste of time and money that you don't need to spend unless you have a rich uncle around (hehehe), in closing it's up to your to decide if one is enough or if your want to spend extra money to open another account to have another alt to do the things you want it to do.

Hope this helps a little bit, Fly Safe

Only true benefit is controlled / throw away cyno characters.

After that, you really need 'friends' in this MMO, not more micromanagement.

I spent the first 12-18 months only using one account.

If you're not in a corp you hit a point at which you either go down the alt/second account route or you accept that large chunks of the game aren't accessible to you. Eg - I have a JF alt so moving from one region to another is painless enough for me to do, can't do it without someone to light the cyno and when the ship is 5bill+ and the cargo is much the same then best to light it yourself on a second account Wink

tl;dr most people that do anything other than highsec missioning have a second account

I'm a low sec pirate with no corp (1 man corp) and get along just fine with a solo account. I activated a second account after about 18mo of playing, but consilidated my accounts because I found I don't really need an alt. While they are handy, I find the game more enjoyable (and more challenging) with only one account Of course this is a alt on that account, for protection purposes =)

Used to have two characters but i have only used this the last...2 or 3 years. But im also not in a position where i need different chars to train skills for different aspects of the game anymore.

Well, EVE was made for multiple people.
That it took off as multi-boxing on many parts is just slightly unfortunate, but ohwell :)

[Edit]
Also, I only have 1 char as well.

I have no alts, and am doing just fine. Get a couple good friends that play with you regularly and you can do anything you want, plus the company makes it more fun than if you were doing it yourself.

Obviously those who look at "just the bottom line" will realize that using alts of their own allows them to get more isk per hour, but those people are also not playing eve for fun, but are rather making it work.

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.

Everyone should have a falcon alt, and at least one hauler toon freighter/JF, mining toon. PvP toon. Carebear toon. PI toon. Cap pilot Titan pilot. afk cloaker, griefer alt, station hugger.

etc .. etc.

I have 3 accounts, all 3 slots on all 3 accounts are full of active characters. I actually USE all 9 characters, just not at once as thats not possible. I am NEVER at a loss for something to do in EvE! Got my own mining corp, my own R&D/missioning/indy corp and 2 alts in different 0.0 corps. Plus my Forum alt...lol.

Anyone who says they have nothing to do ingame isn't trying hard enough

One account, one character.

I'm a member of a corp.

I can barely s c r a p e up enough ISK to buy one PLEX each month, so supporting a second account is out of the question.

Yes, take the advice of these fine people who seem completely oblivious to the fact that they're indeed using alts, but truly believe they have only one character. :)
