Alts are only powerful in the first month or two. After that, everybody will be able to craft their own items anyways. After 6 months, everybody will be able to craft everything, because low tier mats are no longer needed in the same amount, so they are cheap or easy to get.
TIME is the limiting factor to what a player can accomplish.If someone has 10 alts but only plays 2 hours per day, his 10 alts are completely useless.If I'm on a guild's A-GvG-team, then I need Albion Online Powerleveling all of my online time to keep up. This will keep me from using my alts anyways.What you people don't get is that having alts is only a competitive advantage for guilds that actively boost their crafters. Or players that play an absurd amount of time and have time to gather. And only during the first few months of the game.
There are very few of such players/guilds. And the time in which alts give a competitive advantage is very short.So you guys are totally exaggerating the effect on the game in the medium to long term. You are only looking at the super short term.I suggest closing this thread since it is turning into a discussion about LP while the OP asked a question about multiple alts and got an answer.
Off topic, on the current discussion in this thread.
1. people asked for alts; people got alts.
2. casual players complained about not being able to keep up with non-casual gamers, hence the LP system to level the playing field.
Unfortunately pairing 2 with 1 means you can do a whole lot more with alts that have premium, becoming "self sufficient" faster. If you want the fastest progression, you don't have time to fiddle with alts and rely on your guild or AH to provide you with whatever you can't get yourself.Any mmo without stat loss upon death is all about the short term. Long term means nothing, because everyone will eventually be maxed out. All that matters at that point is the gear and the ability to albion online silver farming.
So having a constant system that gives you points without doing nothing allows you short term to do multiple things. No need to get testy, that's just the facts.If you don't think the short term is important, you are entitled to your opinion. You like the way its set up, rock on. I disagree.
I like the idea of the LP, but having it spread on 3 toons, on one account is not a good idea...make LP limited to the account, or limit the account to 1 toon.
