I feel it’s in the games best interest to not force any player to give up their alt. Ever.
That being said, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to have the option to liquidate (muwaha) an alt and transfer all of that character’s xp over to another character. It doesnt necessarily have to be a chosen main.
Say you have 5 characters and decided you only want three. You can liquidate (I just like saying that but you could think of it like a refund too) two characters to two of the three you’re keeping. Those chosen two you’re keeping would also get the refunded cubits for buying those alts in the first place.
The plots, I am iffy on. The xp gathered on a lvl 30 alt will not equal the same in levels when transferred to a higher lvl character.
In my opinion the transfer would be a fair exchange, but some ppl really need those plots.
That’s why I feel regardless of anything else, this choice should always remain the player’s decision.
That being said, maybe a few weeks after the update when everyone gets used to the feel, there could be this as a limited time option since game play needs were changed?
First, of course, stating all the facts on what could or will happen so no one gets upset when they liquidate an alt and scream “I didn’t know blahblah would happen!”
Like a disclaimer.
