BioWare is considering expanding the max amount of character slots to 50 in Star Wars: The old Republic. This is to accommodate the Dark vs Light event.
Maximum Character Slots Per Server | 06.28.2016, 03:07 PM
One of the questions that came out of the Dark vs. Light Event announcement was the current maximum character limits per server. There are some players who have all 40 slots filled, and were concerned about participating in the event.
I wanted to let you know that we are actively testing right now the possibility of increasing that maximum by 10. That would mean that a subscriber could have a server maximum of 50 characters. We are exploring if this is a safe change to make and I am hopeful that I will have an answer about this today.
As soon as I have any other information I will pass it on. I wanted to make sure you all knew that this was in process. There is no guarantees this change will happen, we need to make sure it won’t cause any issues!
