I've heard of some players with as many as 40 alts and most top players i've heard of have a couple alts themselves. I don't really understand what is the point of all those alt accounts. Can someone explain?

The ones with 40 are FFA farmers which use alts to pump stats and points.

The ones with 2 or 3 like moi, use them sensible for a casual game's. I guess.

I have 4, but I don't use them at all, 2 accounts I am sitting on ATM.

Ask the people who like to remain anonymous and post hilarious obscenities on the forums...that is pretty much the only other time you would want an alt.

1) To play anonymously. Its often easieer to play a good player when they dont know who you really are, and assume you are some silly noob (etc myhand)

2) So that you can play team games on your own. teammates are often silly fools, with alts you can play with your own ideas (etc gnuffone)

3) So that you can plant it into another clan as spy, to give you information so you can contain your sissy wars on the forum (etc JSA)

4) To troll, so that you can mock other people, but you can still (appear to be) friends with them on your main account

@brain

1.) should read :" when they are arrogant and stupid enough to believe that an account with low number of played games and high win percentage is a silly noob. "

not to mention that this is NOT the reason for myhand to use alts

In despising and loathing Jay, Brain has become Jay, only he's much, much worse. That being said, you're overruled. If Brain says that's why people use alts, he is correct without doubt.

i use alts to test CLOT and add byes to realtime tournaments.

some folks use alts to pseudo roleplay, some more trolling then others.

as to how they got them:
- either accounts from players who retired and gave away the access before disapearing.
- new accounts to play in team games who ended up getting high level.

using alt's to gain unfair advantage on multiplayer games is not allowed and should be reported when suspected.
