I have an alt account that I multi box with. He's nearly carrier ready now, and between him and my main I have 4 cyno alts.

I'm having a lot of trouble keeping two clients open at the same time post incarna, with clients crashing more frequently while both accounts are running.

With the huge nerf to 0.0 I'm now wondering if I should put my secondary account on ice.

How many of you are also thinking of shelving your alt account?

2 secondary accounts will be frozen once existing subs run out - its not easy getting the sequencing of asset transfer sorted but just finished it :) - I enjoyed eve so sad to move on but also quietly happy that something has given me a reason to reduce accounts

Same, I had just finished training up a three-man team and the support alts that go with my own little enterprise (I play casually). All three accounts are cancelled, the last runs out at the end of July. This is a far bigger issue for me than the Nex/aurum issue. P2W means nothing to me if I can't play at all.

Expired 6/28.

This one is unsubbed but live till 7/20.

Based on the tapdance from the Csm will likely stay that way.

4 of the 8 run out in 20days or so, wont renew. the other 4 are due the month after, will let 2 of them expire.

unless there is a drastic change in how the client works between now and then, there is very little point

Posted - 2011.07.01 17:57:00 - [10]

Unsubbed and sold my alt. I have still got 5 plex in my mains hangar, will play until they are gone. Found it impossible to multi-client. Even with a single client open it is unplayable on my laptop, better on my desktop but not great.

For me this a far bigger issue than vanity items. Let me turn of the bull**** and have the hangar view back. This is the most underwhelming expansion, little game content and a pointless unusable CQ. All I want is to dock, re-up and get back out there.

Mine's less than one year old and labours with one client open in CQ.

What is being nerfed in null sec btw? I'm not seeing it anywhere.

Posted - 2011.07.11 06:56:00 - [16]

This alt, as well with the main is unsubscribed. Both accounts will burn out in a month.

CCP can eye candy people with trailers and a new space nebula, but screw this crap lately and not having things fixed by request for YEARS.

Same here, selling of a few alts :)
I want to go back to a simple playstyle with only one account

I'm playing with 3 alts simultaneous and I still have the resources to use one more. I simply disabled the Incarna station content by unchecking the station enviourment in the visual options. No Problem. Also I have to play all 3 in lowest details, but that doesnt matter to me. Well, if you have an account that you definitivly don't want to have any more, I would gladly adopt it and find a purpose for it. Anyone? Razz

Already done, and this guy has... well, I'd tell you exactly how many days, but account management is down... Less than 30 IIRC.

I'm not unsubbing but agree over the past few weeks, running multi clients is getting harder as one then another seems to 'white screen' or reset from 'socket closure'.

CCP seem to give this a low priority, maybe they think it's cool to disconnect in battle or in some part of lowsec.....

Either way, I have a hefty machine (i7 3.4Ghz, 12Gb DDR3 dual monitors) but it seems to not make a difference as memory leaks keep coming and going patch after patch and clients keep on going down, typically after 5-60 mins. Some nights I can listen to U.S. players on comms having the same problem, other nights it's the Brits. Weird thing is, there seems to be no real pattern.

CCP!! Sort it, a large part of your paying community have 2+ accounts.
Another pointless request.........

Posted - 2011.07.11 08:12:00 - [21]

I've already unsubbed two of my three accounts. Been trying to transfer one of my characters to the open account, but CCP's great new account management website is down at the moment. Guess they're working on more $80 monocles.

I'm honestly beginning to care less and less.

Unsubbed 2/4. Will give it another 6 months for the other 2 then decide.

Previously I ran 5 (even 7 at some point), now I have 4 active accounts but two of those won't be renewed (got about a month left) and still not sure which of the two it's going to be.

Posted - 2011.07.11 10:09:00 - [24]

Can i haze your stuffzzzzz Very Happy

Posted - 2011.07.11 11:28:00 - [25]

I was going to cancel 2 alt subscription but CCP removed PLEX reward for buddy invitation programm (I have stream of "buddies" asking me for invite) and I had to re-subscribe my alts.

Well, at least I don't pay money for those subscriptions.

Ignoring all the off topic. There is something odd going on with the multiclient situation.

Yesterday I easily ran three client on my old single core desktop machine. With no major issue. Ok this was just missioning. However my much newer lappy struggles with two.

There does need to be some investigation especically on higher spec machines which do seem to be struggling.

Still running the same amount of accounts, plus playing football manager on one of my two PCs.

I have turned off station environments as they are pointless...

I honestly don't understand what the problem is here ..

I presume you are not running CQ, have everthing set to low, HDR and resource cache etc off. Shadows off etc etc.

I run 4 clients most days with only 2gb of ram and windows 7 hogging most of that so I am astonished you are having issues with only two. Shocked

You aren't trying to do this on integrated graphics are you? I think you'd have more luck with the toaster if so.

Never had an awesome computer, but at one point I could run 3 accounts with occasional pagefile lag (worst kind of lag by far.) Now 2 has so much pagefile lag it's unplayable. Got some good skills on my 2nd account, but since dual boxing is out of the question, all that's left as useful are the industry skills and non-combat cynos. I'm as uninvested in EVE as I've ever been in 3 years. I can't picture doing more than a couple capital jumps, restarting my industry lines, or needing the kind of hauling capacity the alt account can do. It's probably time to unsub the alt, but I don't want to miss out on the training time in case CCP pulls a "haha, we fooled you, we actually still do care about EVE, and all the other times we said it and it looked like lies were part of the practical joke, haha"

I'm letting all three accounts expire for now.
Honestly don't know that I'll ever come back, game lag seems worse with each patch, I now lag to 30fps while in warp, never noticed that before.
Can't run CQ worth a damn on either of my backup comps, and even my new comp struggles at max settings 60 in space/ 30 in CQ, 20 looking at the mirror or hallway. even dropping some settings only brought it back up about 4 fps.

I wasn't bothered by the plans for WIS, as a refugee from E&B, walking in stations was a large part of player interaction.
But to buy a new comp, and find it's already lagging and all you have in a room to walk around?
CCP has been failing for years at fixing/optimizing code, I guess I should have expected something like this. I for one have no interest in dealing with lag in stations, I've seen more than my share over the past few years in 0.0, I'm not going to pay to have it in station too.
