OK. so, what is your alt account ?

Or is it WHO

Or WHOM.

 

perhaps Mrs Scarlett in the Library with the rope.

 

Or perhaps you should come up to the lab and see whats on the slab.

Many players have an alternate account. I met a player who asked if I was in good health before he stated "I have 20 accounts on the European server and 6 accounts on the North American server". I guess he thought that I'd be so shocked that I would stroke out or something. It makes no never mind to me how many accounts a player wants.

 

But I know a veteran player who has a second account on purpose so he can use his alt-account in the early morning when there are more all bot battles to get a high win ratio. Then he uses his main account in the evening knowing that being pitted against good players he'll have more losses. Whatever floats your boat.

Maybe I should make alternate account.

I do have several e-mails.

A different e-mail for :

   stores

   sales people

   art junk

   business junk

   online line

   schooling

   legal such as divorce and such

 

Of course it still doesn't stop the junk mail nor the " your warranty has expired " calls.

Only GOD can stop the extended warranty calls.

 

Had a new one the other day.

Some sort of FBI financial whatever they said has issued a warrant in my name for my arrest

Because of some fraudulent checking stuff.

 (No I have never committed any fraudulent checking stuff or any other crime.)

When was the last time the FBI called anyone to warn them.

Or even the PD's for that matter.

 

Anyone want to join me in Mexico till all this cools down ? :hiding:

So many jokes spring to mind.  Mostly with a Navy flavor.

I had an alt account once.  I forgot credentials to my main account, and said "screw it" and made a new one.  Then I found the credentials written on a scrap of paper in a drawer.  LOL.

My kid flies my alt account once every three months or so.  I gifted some planes over there so there would be more choices, but the frequency of use hasn't increased.  :(

heh, I have an alt account that I created when I played World of Warships for testing.  I fly on it occassionally too, but it actually has a lower win rate (63.09%) than my main account (64.07%)

it amazes me that folks start alt accounts at all, especially when they have a hangar full of planes on the old accounts     

 

even though i did the same thing myself, when 2.0 started

 

when SFMY and I tried Asia for a couple of weeks many months ago (a year ago?), it was just numbing to fly through all those old low-tier planes to reach even the bottom layer of decent planes         yep, i don't have much patience 

 

different strokes for different folks, i guess

I have 3 alt accounts but only to go through and make different choices than i did on my first main account. For me it's more for experimenting because i only fly each of them no more than 1-3 games each per day.  Stats have never been anything i pay attention to.

Being that the only end game now is grinding up a line, Asia is cool.  Didn't take me long to run up the 109 line.

I didn't have the patience but I've also invested vast amounts of time and money in my NA account over the years. I'm not out to prove anything and frankly a lot of my favorite planes right now are either premiums (Me-210, Tu-1, P-82B, Ho-229) or have a lot of money and time invested into them (P-38F, 190 A-5, Su-10) that starting again from scratch just didn't appeal to me.

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I started my alt account back in warships for testing purposes; I wanted to be able to do certain things that I couldn't get bots to do at the time.  In planes, when they were handing out codes left and right, I picked up a few planes on there too.  Now, it sits there.  I use it as the master account for my clan.  I /do/ fly on it occassionally, but rarely.  It's a lot harder to fly on an account with very little on it.  I never have money for upgrades, planes and pilots aren't tricked out.  Sometimes it's useful to remember how newer players have it when they can't throw silver and high skill point pilots at their problems.

 

For those without hangar slots, alt accounts are a decent solution.  Have an RAF account, an USA account, Luftwaffe account etc.

 

EDIT:  Fail quote, I meant to quote trikke

In fact, I just logged the account on.  I decided to calibrate my equipment on my silver farming spitfire Ia, because without a special pilot it can get handled pretty easily.  Of course, I ran out of silver. after just doing the lightweight wings.
