Holy Moly, this person could have saved themselves some typing with a little better poll construction. Have to admire the williness to put in the effort though. It's interesting that I don't think people in COH can as readily identify a 'main' as they can in other games.

Good point about people having a harder time identifying a main in this game. Almost a year into playing it, I still have "alt-itis" and don't have a character to 50. I don't sweat it -- variety is the spice of life and all that -- and I know I'll eventually get there. :)

Yep and I think it shows that COH is one of the first MMOs that could be called "good solid fun". There are many reasons to stick with a character in an MMO but a big reason in many other games is you feel like you'll have more fun if you just make a few more levels, or that the game is fun only after a particular point. COH has a small bit of that but it was probably the first MMO to deliver a descent return on fun at just about any point in the game.

This opens a whole new dimension in the game for most players because you can play and have fun. Any kind of gameplay will eventually get stale, no matter how good it is, but since COH is fun to play at most levels when you find you need a change you just shift over to another character.

I have 4 characters in their 20's now and I don't find myself caring how fast they go up. I tend to switch back and forth depending on what kind fo play I'm looking for that night, or who I'm going to play with.

See, that's cool -- that's about where I am. I have characters at 27th, 24th, 20th, 16th, 12th and 7th (though that one is getting remade shortly) on Virtue; I have a few others elsewhere. I play 'em all here and there, depending on my mood.
