    I feel they are giving out an acceptable number of slots, likely more then enough for the average player. And for the not-so-average player you atleast have the option of expanding, provided you do not want to lose an existing character. But it is ultimately about bussiness aswell, it is these smaller transactions that they make money on aswell. Considering i wont be forced to drop 15$ a month just to play, i can live with dropping maybe 30$ over an extented period of time to have one of each profession available to me.

    Seems like a fair deal, especially since i dont have to.
    Most likely they won't be $10 dollars each.

    I think in GW they sold them in "packs", and you'd get like 5 for $10 dollars or something.

    Selling character slots is an obvious 'replacement' for the loss of sub. (I don't mean 1:1 but it's an obvious cash shop item)
    It's a little naive to expect 8 (for each profession) or more, where 5 is already a very decent amount (5 races, 5 personal stories).
    At the time you'd want a 6th/7th/8th character slot, you probably already play GW2 for some time and thus the $/month really shouldn't be a problem imo. And for the 'casuals' and people who play GW2 + P2P, it's nice to have a cheap(er) game with 5 character slots. The B2P model is nice, but GW2 is not a charity. As long as they don't sell 'pay-to-win' or mandatory products in the CS, I'm happy.

    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Actually i just checked the GW store, and a single character slot is $10 (well $9.99, i've always thought that X.99 was stupid)

    I don't see any reason why GW2 would be different, but then again there's no reason they can't change it either.

    5 is perfect, I don't plan on playing 8 profs at all period, but I will have 5 so I can see how all the different races stories go as then leave them to gather dust as I ignore them entirerly to play my ranger!

    Should have been one for each profession.

    Somehow smart move to have limited character slots, it's stuff like this that covers the monthly fee.

    Remember back in GW1, there were only 4 slots, had to buy another account to have more character, and yes... it was before you could buy slots.

    if they are 10$ a slot, i think I will buy 2 boxes, at least then my brother or friends can play with me if they come over.

    I'm happy with one slot per race. It's not like they can't add more in future expansions/patches etc, so this is a solid number to start with.

    Well they can pretty much choose any number they want. Lets be honest, they are also running a bussiness. I wouldve considered it very generous to get 8 slots, but frankly also a bit stupid. Thats 30 bucks they can make for every compulsive altoholic out there, such as myself.
    And when i take a neutral approach id say its a nice deal we get to just play every race and get a personal story with every race. And i find 30$ a relative cheap joke when you consider how much fun you can get from a character and how much you do not spend on pointless subscription fees.

    This exactly. Only if they're not too expensive, though.

    Oh, no! You saw a picture showing the character slot limit! Your Guild Wars 2 experience has been completely ruined. Damn these spoilers!
