Alts are absolutely going to result in some out of game meta, a spy or defector in a Monarchs inner circle passing info by discord.
Personally I’m going with a shop keeper in my town at the min, so I’d have enough sparks for 2 years of play. But it is also tempting to see the other side of the world as well. Then also, that shop keeper may decide to pack up and attempt to move the business, an adventure/ordeal in itself.
So that may double/triple my ~annual cost to play (which you could spread by sparking every ~4 months instead of all at once) I look forward to be willing to do that to be part of Elyria. Let’s face it 2/3 sparks a year is still cheaper than most of the big pay monthly past and present mmo.
Deviant is also a big draw for me too 💀I wonder what the % of players using alts SBS will see in the first year of public release and if they’ve factored a number in already on a projection, so if the player base is say 200k over all servers but 20% use 1 alt (on average) that equates to revenue for a 240k player base?
There’s lots of ways to combine all these play styles too from what to do on your main to using different in-game identity to double the fun!
Can’t wait to test it all out.
