Alt Characters In Other-Life

And if we have a new combat system, I will most likely screw up again and make an alt with the 'right' choices

I also think the back market should be ban however I do think there should be a market for buying and selling gc in the game and i think a % should be giving to the game to help with cost of things and i think the game as a whole should pick the price that gc is worth and limit the amount you can sell per month... the only reason i say this is i no longer have time to play like i once did but i do love playing, my time is now spent making more money in real life witch i dont mind useing in games here and there

Wizzy's idea is a good idea for alts. I honestly don't think that people would pay 100usd for an alt character that starts at 7/7 a/d. So that may cut out alts. However I just say we limit alts to 1 or 0 and be done with it.
Honestly if the nexus system gets revamped to be easier on all arounders, don't see a need to have an alt. Soft resets would let you re-specialize your character if you were not happy.

It is the year 2012. If someone really really really wants a p2p char, I am sure they could dig up 20 dollars. It is a free to play game. But if someone really wants something I am sure they could buy it. I mean, how many families have gone bankrupt from that 20 dollar yearly bot fee in EL?
Sorry to sound so curt. I really do not see this as a problem as long as prices remained fairly reasonable. I see many on line games that bought items by a player are 100% non transferable. Yet these games are still going, making an income.

I do see it as a problem, as kids play who either don't have access to paypal or credit cards, and their parents might not want them spending $ on an online game, and people in countries who might not have the economic situations others have, not to mention paypal isn't available everywhere.
P2P characters and bots are just a vanity or luxury items so that obviously can remain $.

Just the moderation implications of outright disallowing them are huge
I assure you that if i really wanted to I could still have an alt and not be caught. Enforcing no alts against internet technology proficient people is not at all fast or easy.

Anyway, I am not against people having alts, I am however very much against alts trading between each other... I'd actually go for the no alts at all rule before I'd go for a free for all alt spamfest, especially since mini events are removed.

I also had an alt, which I did not trade with (was planning on making 1 mixer and one fighter, but lets just prohibit alts outright), although I'll still gladly suffer the same consequences as the grey-area exploiters, for the greater good.
