Thank you very much. 10 is all I need for the first 2 years and I think everyone is happy with that number.

There are currently 10 character slots per account; this will not go down. We are looking for ways to increase the number of character slots, but we are limited by server costs and the Unreal Engine. We have not made a final decision and probably will not until close to launch.

Slots are definitely NOT bound to the ATs. You can build 8 controllers if that is what makes you happy.
We have not set the number of slots in stone yet, but it won't be some tiny number like 5.
One of our general beefs with other dev teams in other games is this: things sometimes look like the devs said to themselves "players can't have that! It would be too much fun!" While lots of limits imposed by devs have real reasons, some don't look that way...
In a game like ours, where making alts is part of the fun, and modifying appearance is also a part of the fun, players need to be able to make new alts...  

Did you make a decision regarding the characters per account question?
A tiny number like 5 would be indeed disappointing. But in what direction is the trend going?
8 would be nice, 10 would be awesome.

Thanks in advance.

Lots are saying "2 slots per AT" I hope it doesn't go that way. I don't really like playing melee characters. I'd much rather explore different combinations of support or ranged.

Okay but the slots are not bound to an AT. So you can make 8 controllers if you want.

My 2 cents worth: 8 slots should be perfect at start, that gives 2 slots per Archetype. Being able to earn more via certain quests, donation tiers or in-game cash shop should work well. This also gives some room for adding more slots as they expand content.

Oh sheesh, I hate the thought of a random costume piece unless it's intelligent enough to not give you something you already have and not something your character can't use! Those sorts of things, where you get the same useless drop time after time after time really wind me up in MMO's!

DO YOU CHOOSE:
A character slot (There would likely be a limit on how many you can add this way)
A high level recipe based on your AT
A random dual aspect enhancement
A dual aspect temp power
A random epic recipe
A random costume piece (account wide)

I hate you so much right now 😀

Just to repeat, nothing is set in stone as far as how many character slots you get. I like the idea of 2 per available AT, and the ability to earn more. Also, you can add them via donations. If they have Founders Packs, they will likely have Character slots and tailor sessions included in those.

Many people are happy with just a few slots. The 8-10 included would be plenty for them. Others want 3 digits worth of character slots. For those that are satisfied with just a few then when the rewards come up in a TF, a character slot is not something that will tempt them.

But for most of us, what an agonizing choice at the end of a Task Force!

I think 8 to start sounds great! I like the idea of both being able to receive free slots via game progression as well as by donation tier and or cash shop. I personally think everyone would want 10 but it feels a bit too much to give us at the game start

I could have sworn that I posted this yesterday, but I don't see it in this thread nor do I see it in my post history, so... *Shrug.*

Anyhoo, eight character slots to start off with sounds good. Then add an additional two free character slots when Commanders are released, and an additional two free character slots when Controllers are released, for a total of twelve character slots.

This has not yet been decided. The team is leaning towards 8 slots with the ability to add more via mission rewards. And these will be an item I the cash shop when it releases. Also, if you donate to certain levels you can get extra character slots.

But nothing is set in stone. If you have an idea about this, speak up! The team wants to hear it.

I like to think that at least 10 Slots would be standard in all MMOs. But the reality shows that number can be fewer than 8, or more than 10 at start.

Regardless, I still think 10 would be a good number, because I like Alts! 😀 Laugh 🙂
