There are so many advantages to having multiple characters. This one is not needed. From a gameplay standpoint i don’t mind but it is not worth the dev time or the added security holes that could come with this.
It goes against the pretense that each character is treated as a unique entity. I’d say it’s probably a good thing to keep them separate because after that, where do you draw the line? What about sharing other assets? If assets are so easy to share, then the only real divider is skillpoint sets, in which case why not sell parallel skill training on 1 character because after all MCT already exists? And then why limit it to 1 account, when after all, it’s all still the same player? And on and on until you’re selling gold ammo. The pretense that they are completely separate is a better game than the pretense that they are all the same.
That’s dumb on a couple levels. If that were the case, why is CCP increasing the skill options for alphas? Player skills are important, but there’s a reason why the “best” PVPers don’t exclusively fly rookie ships. They pick the ships that fit the tactics (and have the SP to fly them), they skill well into them, and they train the skills needed to fit and to execute their tactics. Any dumbass can lose regardless of how much $ he has, but assuming you don’t suck, it’s retarded to say SP doesn’t give you an edge. CCP was just clever enough to make sure they get paid twice for $ -> SP.
But my point is that as the $ -> SP transaction is already sketchy as hell, and that breaking the barrier between characters would normalize even more cynical p2w cash grabs.
I’m not saying that was a good move either, but at least it’s somewhat justified since PLEX already lives on the account level at some stages of its life cycle. And the relationship of plex to $ also made the lack questionable. Remember when PLEX couldn’t be undocked?
Was just pointing out a flaw in the premise rather than disagreeing as such. I also think there’s no need for combined wallet, and i think the PLEX vault was a stupid addition. Sorry for the short reply, was at work
Well here a tricky thing you can do with the plex wallet, buy a lot of plex, hold it not in the vault, just out side of it and make a toon, or have a toon with no ties to your main in any way and have it been played some what, work yo ass off to get it into a corp that you hate, give the plex to the toon by drop can and sell it off and you got a cyno ready hot droper in a corp that don’t know they are about to be ■■■■ on, and just wait for a mining fleet and bubble, and drop on them and kill ■■■■.
There no way for them to tell if your a backstaber
