For those of you who only play one and just one character in any given MMO, today’s discussion is probably not for you. But for the rest of us who nurture and engage with a flock of alts, it can be a challenge when new content — whether it be a story scenario, update, or expansion — lands on the server. How do you handle this? I used to focus solely on a single character until I finished up most of the new content and then would move on to other alts, although lately I’ve changed to more of a rotational model to give each character equal time spread out over multiple nights.

Play Champs Online for freeChampions Online is really not going to stop reminding everyone that it’s become the “longest running superhero MMO of all time,” chiefly by simply refusing to close down as the playerbase and content dried up (and not ever having to either since Cryptic wisely bought the IP rather than licensed it). It’s earning its keep a bit today, however, as well as some deserved respect, by actually releasing some new content in the form of a new alert. It’s called Save the Earth. “In this epic adventure, your Champion’s personal nemesis has commandeered a satellite high above the orbit of Earth! You’ll have to fly there and do battle with them to… wait for it… Save the Earth! Are you up to the challenge, Champions?

What follows is typically unproductive behavior: web surfing, social media checking, instant messaging, and many other forms of distraction. It doesn’t have to be this way. There is a way for bloggers to avoid that helpless feeling. It takes a good deal of preparation, but that little effort will repay itself tenfold when it comes time to create content. Are you willing to make that little bit of effort? A lack of ideas starts not when the blogger sits down to write, but long before that.
