In the latest news article, CCP Falcon mentions something that I find a bit troubling…
If pilots choose to switch to the beta launcher, they will need to log in all accounts fresh.
What seems worrisome about this is in the case where a player has a significant number of alts or multiple accounts. The amount of time it can take to log in more than just a few characters is non-trivial at best. So much so that to even contemplate testing the beta launcher can be a deterrent to doing so, knowing that whether you stick with it or not you’re going to have to enter those accounts and characters all over again.
Is there not a mechanism or procedure available that saves character login data to a file as a backup? This strikes me as something that could benefit every EVE player.
