Characters you don't play anymore

I wanted to play some Republic classes with my friends, so we rolled up on Jedi Covenant. I decide I'll take the healing class and go Scoundrel, making a Twi'Lek named Tenneus, aka the Good Captain.

Then my friends quit after 2 days. I let the Good Captain sit around a while and collect dust before finally deciding to make a name for him. I start playing again and get involved in flashpoints. After a while I start to become a pretty capable healer and eventually settle down into a nice guild. All is well; my guild mates are good, heroics are easy to queue up for and I'm always willing to stop what I'm doing to go help with a world boss. I actively recruit, donate to the guild bank, and give items I don't use or need to fellow guild members. After some time I finally roll around to my legacy.

Then one day I have to go visit family and lose internet for a weekend. I leave on Friday night and by the time I log back on the following Monday morning my guild leader has kicked me. I'm assuming he thought I was inactive (AFK period, from the mouth of our guild leader, was 5 days, not 3....), but no reason was every given.

Who's your character that you just don't play anymore? Why don't you play him?

I don't play my Shadow. I enjoyed leveling him, but I play mostly Empire, so he just sits around on his ship, with only his companions to keep him company.

Ah yes... And people ask why I am not in a guild.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I have a 50 on a server that I quit playing on. Server just went to trash. General chat was full of people that were more interested in making sex jokes than the game.

I have a 30-something on that same server on the Republic side, too, but since I found the Imperial side to be insufferable, I just decided to go server shopping.

So I played a few characters on a few servers, including getting a trooper up to 40-something before I finally found a server where I really, truly felt that the community was solid on both sides.

And then transfers, and ultimately server merges, happened and there went the neighborhood.

Anyway, I figure that I am on the server that I will play out my time in the game on.
I have spent enough time playing enough different classes and ACs to predict that only trooper and BH (barring any new classes/ faction alignments being introduced) will get any play from me beyond the class stories.

I am currently playing a JK, but I hate the mechanics and am not comfortable with the class; I have done minimal grouping because I do not want to drag anyone else down (or listen to a bunch of self-proclaimed experts tell me how I 'should' be playing), and that also includes warzones, which I have completely avoided.

I can only play one character at a time, so you can bet that it is going to be a character that I feel comfortable playing, and as of right now, trooper and BH are the only two that I am comfortable with.
Every other character is going to be a glorified bank/crafting alt.

That sucks about getting kicked out of the Guild after less than a week of inactivity. Like someone else said: that's why I'm gunshy of joining a 'real' Guild.

I have two characters that probably qualify for your question:

1. Jedi Consular - She was a solo character, aka, the character I played when I wanted to play SWTOR and it wasn't one of the times I scheduled to play with someone else. I got her into Chapter 3 for the Legacy buff unlock but then stopped playing her because I might play her with someone else going forward. Maybe. Since that's up in the air, she's on hiatus.

2. Jedi Knight - She reached Level 50 and completed all the non-FP/Op content up through Ilum. I'm playing at the moment for the story, so, for all intents and purposes, she's "done". So, I've shelved her.

The other six, I touch at least once every two weeks, some more frequently than that.
