Warhammer soothes the altaholic

One of the things I love about Warhammer Online is the number of characters per server Mythic allows (10). I am definitely an ‘altaholic’ when it comes to these games. I won’t ever play all these guys to end game, but I do like to sample a wide variety of classes just to get an inkling of what they’re all about. Some games limit you to X characters per account, others are more generous but limit the number per server. Back in the good old days, offering plentiful character slots was the norm; let’s here it for Mythic going retro!

Whoa, wait a minute. I still have room for two more!

  1. I have been good with alts so far, only 1. I plan on having one in every tier for the foreseeable future, so I can play with fellow CoW’s 🙂

  2. Lots of character slots only makes sense for a subscription model MMO. You won’t keep paying your monthly fee if you run out of things to do, and replaying the game with a different character is a huge win for the game company in terms of what they have to spend to keep you playing.

    WAR also probably wants to keep parity with WOW, which provides up to 50 characters per account, with (surprise) a max of 10 characters per realm.

    That said, I’m a huge fan of the lots of slots too. It gives me a lot of freedom to experiment.

  3. I’m an altaholic too. I keep my Station Access partially so I can have those 2 extra slots in EQ. Sure I could make chars on another server, but my home has always been Xegony. 🙂
