I can't see why anyone would need more than 12 characters on a server but here you go. The FTP people can now purchase more character slots.

Finally - At last! Is this actually in now or coming later in the year?

I guess if you have 8 chars, and are preferred status you will need to buy 3 char slots, before you get an additional 1?

If people want to be thorough I can see reason to have more than 12 chars - There are 8 professions total, with 2 paths each, so that makes 16, then if you want to have them as the opposite gender, then that would be 32, and then maybe you wanted some more with different skill sets. That is what I probably would do, if playing through all the sides quests over and over again, was not a major headache, and there was plenty to do at end game for them all. That is what I did in SWG, but then my chars came to life at end game, and found many numerous ways to level up than doing the Legacy series of quests, from Tansarii, Tatooine to Talus.

"But it was so artistically done..." - Grand Admiral Thrawn's final words

Additional Character Slots may now be purchased from the Cartel Market. Each Character Slot will increase the number of Characters a player may have across all servers by 1 (players can go beyond their default character slot restrictions). Each purchase will increase the number characters that a player may mark as Active across all servers.

 

I really like that it's adding character slots will add them to all servers. Now we just need transfers.

 

Also additional useful notes:

 

UI

General

Galactic Trade Network

    • The "Unify to Chest" armor color option now works correctly for players and companions.
    • Vendors now have a "Sell Junk" button that can be used to automatically sell inventory items that would be sold when sending a companion to sell junk.
    • Four new item sorting options and a button to swap between ascending/descending (where applicable) have been added to the inventory and Cargo Hold windows.
    • Preferred Players can now post 5 sales at a time on the GTN. Previously, Preferred Players were incorrectly limited to 2 sales.

I haven't played in about a month, but why transfers?  I thought they resolved server populations a while ago, when they merged almost everything into 6 or 7?

No problem with polulation, but I would like to move one of my characters from one server to another now that we have more character slots available. I had Reps toons on one server and Imps on other, now I can combine them.

 

Also: many bugs were addressed in this patch. For more information here is a link

Is it just me or did EA really mention the same Skip Tracer Cartel pack multiple times in the same update post ...

 

New Skip Tracer Cartel Pack available! ... also you can now buy additional character slot .. did we mention the Skip Tracer Cartel Pack?

 

The Gamorrean Axe is discounted by 30%. Cost: 245 Cartel Coins. LOL! oh boy...

 

All players have a Global Active Character Limit of 350 Characters. 350? Whuzzat..

Ah, it would never be unlimited, as someone would find a way to script creating millions of characters.  Then posting a youtube video to challenge others =)

 

350 is an odd number though .. I wonder how that number was chosen?  ..Must be a multiplyer of the current average a sub has .. say 100X.  No idea. (ie 350 characters is 1% of the average player).  Or in other words, every account has 3.5 characters on average?

 

If every account created 350 characters then SWTOR would likely crash.

I have 25 so far...  my logic... as you mentioned to fully have all classes genre and dark/light side covered you need 32 characters... average number of servers for is 10 (I mean N/A separate then EU) - this would be 320 characters per server... they added 30 more in case you want to play on Oceanic /grin

I guess they think that 350 is as close to unlimited as it can get, as Hickman said in one of blogs... that that's that they think of doing...

I don't understand what you said.  Sorry!

 

Cant you explain more .. and show your work what you were trying to say?

 

edit - don't understand "10", as any relevance, or how if even closely resembled 350?

They changed some armor design in last patch as well.

I like that they finally made Revan robe look actually like Revan's robe - there are other changes to armor,.

Honestly I think they've done a good job in making the preferred experience better.

6 character slots, 5 ah slots, 4 action bars.

Its a better experience now.

Anyone know if they raised the credit cap for preferred accounts? Thats still one of the harshes restrictions the f2p/preferred has.

Playing: None

Waiting on: None

Meh 8 hours of down time and most of the bug fixes were things from the FTP patch, there still patching patches I see.

I love the game but the team they have working on this need to pull there socks up.

The two new armor sets look pretty nice as well. Still, the most important issue addressed with this patch were f2p restrictions.
