# 1 Any reason for alts?
02-24-2010, 03:26 PM
Is there really ant reason for to have an alt character in the same faction? You are awarded a new ship at every promotion but afterwards can buy the other two. And because the majority of your time is spent in space is there any reason to create a new character to try out the other classes of ships? Do the class specific skills really have that much of an effect on your ship performance?

Well i would say to anticipate any potential changes in ground content maybe it will distinguish significantly more

also if they release romulans/cardasiens good to have that extra slot for one of those types of toons

It's not the ships that make a difference, it's your choice in careers which gives you access to certain skills that are otherwise not availiable to the other classes.

I have 4 alts ranging from RA5 to Lt. 10 covering 3 different Classes and 4 different races. The funs in the playing of them. If that's not fun to you then no, there's no reason to make an alt.

When you have alt-itis, you don't really need a good reason.

I have a Klingon (cuz I wanted one, not really for the PVP aspects). My federation Escort Tactical arse-kicker and I plan on making my Engineering "Scotty" nerd later. Not for better performance or uber gaming, just because it's fun.

I have noticed that class specific skills have an effect on ground combat performance, but ship performance I have no opinion on yet...until I roll my Engineer.
