Having multiple accounts is a lie. I don't see how I ever would have more than one?

I've recently activated an alt.
Doesn't quite affect my main though, but put me down on the dual account list.

Yes look at the poll results. Only 31% of the forum posters has just 1 account.

You need teamwork to advance, but in a game where you shouldnt trust anyone?

I have 2 active accounts and 2 inactive accounts.

Inactive accounts are not due to the current crisis, I had a bankruptcy in 2007 and they've been inactive since then.

One account here.
I don't need more than one, as the poor peasants do all the work for me.

I have 2 accounts my main account with this character as my main and an alt for normaly posting on on these forums. Then i have a second account that has a freighter and can fly a jump freighter (nearly) and is currently training for a hulk and orca which will be my industrialist. I was going to open a third account soon to which i was going to put 3 researchers on 2 bought from the character bazzare 1 i would train myself. The 3rd account though is well out of the window for now unless CCP pulls there finger out and fixes eve.

ive had 2 accounts for about 6 years. people maintain one ship cant be fitted to do everything and i agree, but 2 ships flown side by side? oh yes.

sure you can rely on corpies to bring the matching ships, but why not be sure its there and bring it yourself.

I have 4 accounts.

I've also played several other MMOs, often with multiple accounts (though less than EVE) and found that EVE is far more multibox-friendly than most, largely due to the 'hands off' nature of the controls; pointing 4 ships at one thing and telling them to go there, or lock 1 thing and shoot it 'til their ammo runs out or it dies is a whole lot easier than trying to manually steer 2 or more characters, or use the most appropriate combination of abilities out of the large pool that most MMO characters have.

Had 3... transferred the characters that were training on them to my main account when they were fit for purpose and needed no more training.

i used to have 3 accounts,, dropped to 2,, now merged the 3 main characters onto one account,

specifically,,
1 mission runner, 1 industrialist/resercher/inventor and a seperate pvp character
its a good mix to have on one account as i never "have" to have them all logged in,, before i used to need trade alts and disposable scouts,, now i just have friends instead

Have 4 active accounts. No intention of quitting. Not bothered about MT as long as they remain vanity only. I quite like CQ and am playing it on not particularly new kit with no burn issues.

That's about it really. I'll go back to the area marked "Silent area for people who have no real complaints".

I have 2 accounts. I have no intention of quitting either providing the Nex does not provide players with overwhelming advantages(eg. I'm okay with SP and Standings etc as long as it's done right)

3 accounts, Greygal's my main, 2nd one is my miner alt, and 3rd one is my scout/scanner/hauler/market trader alt. Majority of the players I know have a second account, a few have 3, and four people I know have 6 or more accounts (insanity)

Four, though it's unlikely to be for much longer.

I had two, now I have one. As an Orca pilot, I find two accounts to be useful. But I needed to cut back a bit since my deadbeat roommate is 2 months behind on rent. =/

Yes look at the poll results. Only 31% of the forum posters has just 1 account.

Well, 31% of active forumgoers who end up also reading the thread(s) in which the survey was posted and can be bothered to click on it Wink
That's a pretty seriously biased sample you get that way - I'm actually surprised ONLY 31% of them have admitted to having more than one account.
Trying to take into account an actual random sample of people online at any given time is also very likely to result in similar numbers (people that stay online longer are more likely to have multiple accounts), and to make matters worse, people with high activity levels tend to cluster, so when you encounter one, you're likely to encounter many.

The only semi-official numbers we got from CCP a good while ago were something to the extent of an average around 1.25 accounts per player.
