More Character Slots Per Server in the Works

Do you suffer from alt-itis like me? Do you ever wish there were more character slots so you could play more toons without having to go to another server? You have a common problem that many gamers face and with SWTOR going free to play soon, there’s a good chance there are going to be other people just like me who want to make new toons to level up with friends but do not want to lose existing characters.

So more character slots would be the answer to all of this and there’s a good chance we’re going to get it soon.

Allison Berryman SWTOR Senior Community Coordinator says:

We do have plans to make more character slots available per server and will bring you more info as soon as we can. Thanks for all your suggestions in this thread!

The one thing that comes to mind for me here is microtransactions or a pay-for-more-slots policy like EverQuest 2. There are good points to this because only those who need or want it would have to pay for it but then again, it could really rake in the cash like the way that WoW does with class and race changes and paid server transfers.

One could also argue that if you’re already playing a game and loving it enough to want more characters, should the company really charge you more money for more slots? This might actually discourage some people from continuing to play. We don’t really know very much yet about how they will enable more character slots per server but Allison says they want your feedback in the thread so head on over and tell them your opinion.

What do you think? Would you use more character slots?
