Using the wrong alt in a reply often results in awkwardness.

Alternate characters or alts are those characters typically created for roleplaying, spying, fooling around, trying out different play styles, or just starting over. Since SR2.3, you may have up to four characters on a single account.

Using alts to run influence with the intention of claiming a skyland for a single faction is alt swarming and is not allowed.[1] Running alts on different factions is a debatable action, since you could use it to distract a faction. Equally, there is no rule against Flight School or Independent alts taking govs, but you shouldn't push your luck.

The Taking of EltsinaEdit

The most significant example of alt swarming was The Taking of Eltsina (also known as The Battle of Eltsina), during Skyrates 2.2. This effort to lead Influence on the Green Faction's capital was planned and primarily executed by two members of the Red Faction: The Dormouse and The March Hare.[2] Each piloted a fleet of Marauders and Novas known as La Armada de Para Locas.[3] This attempt, once successful, was a touch-point for many players on the issue of Alt Swarming.[4]

List of AltsEdit

These players have revealed their alts on the forum, radio or elsewhere. Alt 1 is the character the player prefers to be known by or is most known as. The bolded character is their primary inf runner.

You may notice a few color/icon mismatches. This typically occurs when the character considers themselves independent but is currently a member of a faction for whatever reason. It also happens when the character is a pirate.
