That's odd.

My in-game play experience would have led me to believe just the
opposite, since practically everybody I played with (in a fairly
large group of people) had numerous alts.

Of course, I suppose its possible that 75% or more of the playtime
was still concentrated on the main character, which really shouldn't
be surprising.
