The 6 character maximum for preferred hasn't been initiated yet. Right now it is still 2 account wide for anybody who isn't subbed.
In my specific case I was subbed a long time ago and had a ton of characters made back when I was subbed. Now that I am playing the game with some friends I don't want to give a single cent to Bioware (because they fucked this game up) I have preferred status. Unfortunately I can only play characters I made long agao because they wont allow me to create a new character until I delete about 16 characters to get my total down to 1.
(I shared my account with my brother and he made several characters when i was subbed long ago)
I'm sad/mad for the game it could of been.
I'm barely playing the game at all right now, I'm not even really enjoying it. A few of my friends wanted to try the game, I'm basically babysitting them because some have never even played an MMO. None of them are too impressed and I wouldn't be surprised if they move on to actual good games by new years. (None of them have given any money either besides buying the physical disc for $10, they will not support them further).
Either way, why do you care, you just have your panties twisted because I don't share the same opinion, therefore mine is invalid right? Long story short, I have to love the company to have a complaint.

Making it F2P is not an act of mercy.
If there was a game that was completely free would that mean players are never allowed to give negative feedback?
Right now if you are F2P you can only have 2 characters.
Right now if you are preferred from being a returning player you have every character you ever had, but can't create more unless you delete down to 1
Right now if you are preferred from a purchase, but are new to the game you can only have 2 characters.
When the change goes live, everyone who isn't a subscriber will have a maximum of 6 slots to use on whatever server you want. Smart idea is to have them on the same server.
Then when the additional 4 character slots were announced, someone at the official forums wrote that it means 6 characters for the whole account, and only 2 per server - which was confirmed in this thread.
So this stuff is really confusing to me as different people claim different things
I did notice the 2 characters on multiple servers with my wife when she tried F2P...but I don't think that is intended b/c many other people were being told to delete characters before they could create any.
Damion: From a design perspective there is a balance you want to achieve. You want to be sure that the F2P options is compelling and attractive but at the same time it is really important to us that our subscribers feel like they are getting their money’s worth with their subscription fee. Finding that balance point is really really crucial. We will continue to massage that as we get feedbacks from the fans and look at our metrics. We are already starting to make adjustments: we will go to six character slots for our preferred players instead of two and four quick bars for our prefered players instead of two. We haven’t announced that (character slots) but this is the first revel of allowing preferred players to get six character slots. You heard it first in the livestream!
I actually want more and not happy when shit gets shoveled in my direcction therefore I shouldn't get a say. That's basically what your getting at.
If I'm not completely satisfied I have no right to complain. Good thing you're on the ball.
Hate to be a person who disagrees with you because apparently they would outright be a bad friend/person just on that one opinion alone. But that would be an unfair/wrong assessment of you right?
But don't worry you know me soooooo well you can question my friendships just because I don't blindly love a game and have some opinions against a game you love on the internet
So you encourage different opinions but really fuck all of them because this game and other things would be better without them.
Only whenever people spill bloom all over anything on the internet it's acceptable.
So I guess the internet should just be an ignorant ball of happy because that is the only way things/products will get better.
You seem so encouraging....
Again, you are the very encouraging one.....
So I can't agree with anyone and I can't disagree with anyone. Apparently I just can't win with Psychlon (but don't worry his close minded stubbornness is sooooo different from me, therefore he's allowed to say no one can win with me but I shouldn't say it about him)
Dude... you are complaining in a thread about giving more free slots to prefered players but hey... I'm sure you are on the right side
So what is there to complain at getting more free character slots?
Psychlon already proved in the "life day" thread that even if proof of a complaint is present he'll still deny logic and reason.
He says it's no use fighting me but he's the one that has proven even undeniable proof dosn't make sense to him.

However if I want to create a new character.. I also have to delete one of my 12 existing
