I think there should be a limit of 2-3 alts per person. This prevents account selling (Actually a thing that happens rn), improves RP because you know who tf you’re talking to, prevents people from abusing in-game mechanics in a great variety of ways including but not limited to; bounty farming and killing of that char on a low level char for instant levels, finishing ww/bounty hunting by farming alts, and selling alt kills to other players. 

With this you would have to think very carefully where your allegiances lie as you would have to reset to switch sides. It would also remove the need for new alt new life rule and prevent instant exiling. 

How to make this happen for people with 4+ characters: Ban the extras. I have 10 alts with 5 being over level 40 btw.

I don't want my gameplay to be limited to only few masteries or few villages to choose from or... the list goes on.

It does not improve RP by any way since this game is heavily reliant on PvP.

As for account trade-selling, if Rory wanted to he could shut down most of what's going on if he had the time and resources.

Account selling is bannable offense if caught with appropriate evidence. That's how it works pretty much everywhere. To my eye game is doing well if there's people stupid enough to buy currency/accounts in exchange for real life money.

Even if we wanted to, It's impossible to enforce this. here's ideas for solutions and problems with those ideas.

Block IPs / Check IPs
VPNs

Block Mac Addresses
Reset your Mac Address

Charge for creating accounts
People will still pay more money to make more alts, there'll just be less players and the game won't be F2P

Moderate on a hE sAy ShE sAy basis "hE's aN aLt, hE jUsT cHaNgEd IpS"
Everyone would be banned

Sit next to each player as they play and make sure they login the same account
Not omnipotent enough

Would be fun if some words would summon a creepy face like in that "Sword Art Online: Alicization" it should say something like : We got you frand!" and disappear with a message to the staff.

I know its impossible, but it gives a chuckle.. a small one at least.

Couldnt you automate this task on the character create screen somehow? Ive seen so many mmos that have 2-3 character limits per server(some even limit you 1 character per server). I realize Nin is a very small game comparatively speaking but there must be some way to mitigate this because people are abusing this so much that its become a straight up plague on the game. I mean seriously alt abuse is  one of the top 3 plagues on this game right now.

Okay but the way around masteries is just to buy a mastery reset for [insert insane amount of ryo here] or make it a cash shop item. Boom. Pls make this a thing; it would prevent so many people from resetting. Probably lower the alt count a bit too tbh.

Mostly because their loss of time spent on alts. "Money can't buy you more time."

At that point I'd feel like too many excuses were given. If people didn't create the alt spying issue; then we wouldn't need to have alts removed to some extent. If people respected the new alt new life rule; we wouldn't need to have the alts removed to some extent. It would definitely cut down the people who are innocent of these RP crimes and take them out of the picture. Everyone else at this point would be using alts for some other purpose other than trying a new life. And if anything; it does save time because you aren't going through the effort of making another e-mail account.

With the way I'm thinking of it going is that so many mastery resets would be bought it would speed up progression time with making the game, also there would be so many that you wouldn't even be able to tell who is who based on mastery. Just my thought process though. Maybe I'm over-positive.

Raising the funds to the detriment of the game isn't right. How boring would it be if we had to fight GF/WM all day.

I disagree, and I'm just not going to explain why.

Sounds like broke in here

 

In seriousness though mastery reset would pave the way for new metas. A lot of people don't have the time to spend months experimenting with builds so they just go with whatever's broken. If we allow people to change their masteries we'll see a more diverse mastery pool because people aren't locked in anymore.

"Choose the mastery you like, not the strongest".

I used to have that thought of yours, but for the time I played, I saw that it just isn't the case. People rather go with OP mastery combo than making their masteries work, because that's just the simpliest thing to do.
