The original idea that was sold was that people would have the ability to have multiple characters tied to their account, so they could play alts. This is a great idea, and quite common in the MMO world. This allows people to freely try out new things w/o impacting their "main". Unfortunately, for some bizarre reason, this concept of separation is getting further and further lost as time goes on. First there was the "shared" alignment. Which sucked, because I was at one point considering having both a "dark" and a "light" character on my account. Next was the proposal to share the XP pool between these character alts. For some reason I can't comprehend, this has been jumped on by the development team. I spend a lot of time watching/managing my XP pool, and I really really do not want my other characters to be having any impact on my main's pool. Proper pool management and decision making on how to spend your XP is a crucial and core aspect of Shroud (and something I quite enjoy). Now today, there's this crazy idea to pool together the gold across avatars. Again, totally throwing a wrench in the works of proper character management. If people are tired of mailing gold to themselves, then just make it so you can deposit excess gold coins in the bank (again, like most MMOs allow you to do). All of this avoids the other problem, which is the shared bank across your avatars. I'm not a fan of this either, and now that rewards are now their own separate "bank", I can't see why they need a shared bank any longer? Really, what I'd like is complete separation between characters. Since the game is completely F2P now, why is there this need to bunch your multiple avatars into a giant blob of sameness? It seems to me that things should be going the other direction -- Stop sharing banks, stop sharing mail, stop sharing alignment, and do not in any way move forward on sharing the XP pool or gold pool. Please just give us the ability to play separate characters, which was what was the original idea.
