small question with the new launcher:
is it possible to double login the same account to use a second character?
or you have to use 2 accounts?
just fly, no skill training, i know you need the double character training package for that

AFAIK there is no way to run concurrently two chars from the same account. Even with double character training you can use only one of the chars at the time.

My hope is that one day we will get to use as many characters as we have paid accounts irrespective of what account the actual characters are on. Yes, I know it is a pipe dream with "greed is good" CCP.

Yep. You can only run one client per account. Though you can be logged on Sisi and TQ with same account and character at the same time. So you don't need to logout TQ for masstests :)

We can't have unlimited number of characters ever. I would have one in every wormhole if that would be possible.

On the other hand it kind of could be ok to have as many characters online as you have paid subscriptions and total of 3 x paid accounts of characters. Though this might make problems when subscription ends.

Easiest next step is to show characters in launcher and skip in game character selection. Would allow to set settings profile per character. When you would select a character, rest on that account would become gray (unclickable).
