For some reason, they don't even let you start off at LT1 when you make secondary characters as a Fed. I'd probably be more inclined to make alts if I didn't have to start off all the way back at the tutorial every time.
Well... I lied. If I got to start off at LT 5, I'd be more likely to make alts. I really don't like the grind from LT to LTC.
