So I wrote this on the wow forums yesterday. I used an alt name, so I would not get verbally attacked. I got 1 reply but it was a very good one.
So I’ve had a love hate relationship with alting. There are days I love it and times I wish I could delete everything and start over. I got into this game 15 years ago and through the years I’ve leveled a.lot of characters. Through the past year or so I took my tokens and made 2 paladins one on each side, I’ve mained them ever since. Allied races have made me dip into alt leveling but I hit a certain point and get bored.
I’m not sure if its anxiety, OCD, or just I just got older and don’t care for leveling. I just don’t see the point in leveling or having this surplus of characters that I have. I know there is nothing forcing me to level them other then myself but I continually debate them all. I wish there was a “hide all,” button because I dont want to delete the years and time I put into everyone.
When I delete, I just restore so it’s a vicious cycle that I just keep doing. My latest grand scheme is to move my 2 mains to a new account on my battlenet. Leaving the alts on the old account. This way I don’t need a new guild or server and I don’t loose or see my alts.
The only downside I see to that plan is my desire to play an alt would result into 2 active subscriptions, expansions, etc. So really is that worth it for a piece of mind?
The alt confusion continues for me and I guess that’s my dilemma, as it always is.
What do you guys do when reach this level with your altoholic symptoms? Just tell yourself its a game and move on? lol
