Does anyone still use alts? Since S7 release I have found it difficult to keep up with the main character on my account. Tomorrow I'll hit tier 5, with alts mostly on tier 1 and I just think it's a stupidly large amount of work to get other toons to the same tier.
I hope the Devs think up an easier way to keep alts on par with the main character on an account, but until then I feel like alts are dead.
Anyone else have thoughts on the matter?

I do think reputation creates a 'cost' to max out alts.

Then again, you can do the vast majority of content without the reputation rewards, so...

This^

the only content excluded with rep is the 5 New Romulus missions. The rest of the game is unaffected, content wise.

It took a good portion of my free time, but I juggled around 6 characters and now I can finally relax as they are now unlocking Tier 5 Rom and Omega reputation.

And with the Romulan reptuation, I'll have the entire store unlocked so I don't have to bother with the Romulans anymore (not going to bother with their space sets). And Omega gear unlocks is going back to normal status and can do when I have the time.

So after the Winter Event, I can relax (grinding DL, Rom, Omega, and Fleet marks was / is incredibly stressful).

Lol, wow. Well I applaud your dedication. Sounds more like work than play though! It's all I can do to do everything I want to do on my main each day. Without the ability to redo my traits I've been tempted to roll an alt but just haven't been able to make the commitment. I'm still holding out hope for the retrait token anyways.

I have been doing rep system for 1 of each specialty for my toons. 1 Sci(she's the highest, almost T5 on both) 1 Eng(mid T4 on both) and 1 Tac(early T4 for both). Recently I have stopped doing the Romulan rep on the Eng and Tac until I get my Sci completed. Then will probably finish the Tac and then the Eng. I have barely started my Klink and my other 6 toons are just languishing.

I find I can do it on only 2 characters, one Fed character and one KDF character. Luckily I only have 3 characters where one was created as an experiment and I don't care about how she does. As you can see, I don't have a problem with alitism.

i'm maxing my Sci KDF main, his copy - also a sci KDF main (using them for PVP with identical build - so when i hit the 8k Dill i can just switch toons)

and the Tac KDF.

2 of them will be hitting T5 in some 3-5 days, the third is on T2 now as i started the toon only 3 weeks ago.


I will not be bothering maxing another toons, cause there will be more reputations to come, so maxing these 3 will be enough "work".

Yeah, I'm entirely focusing on my main toon, Fed engineer. He'll be finished with rep leveling tomorrow. Once he has all the tier 5 toys and such I want, I'll go from there.

I might end up focusing on my other more played toons first. At least Omega grinding for awhile for most toons, since I had plenty of Omega Marks from season 6 conversion that were just leftovers.

Initially I was only gonna do it with two chars, my fed sci and tac, but then I found a reason to play my eng again. Then I started up a new tac I enjoy. It was a fair bit of a grind managing four, but not terribly so. It's a lot easier now the sci and 1st tac are at t5, and the eng is a day or two away. The new tac is into t5, so it's almost over bar the shopping, but I can take that slowly if I want to. My kdf tac just makes do with what was in her s7 conversion box, and some marks from raising romulan winter pig-bees.
