    4 more character slots

    If Blizzard upped the character slots to 15 per realm/ 50 per account, would you approve of this?

    will approve w/e but the best solution is 22 char slots so i can have each class on both ally and horde

    Maybe that "big announcement", which we are yet to see, is about removal of 11 chars per realm cap and possibility to have 50 chars all on same server?

    Of course yes.

    We were actually PROMISED 50 slots on one server for MoP, but Blizzard later retracted that promised and made it 11 slots to make room for a monk..

    I would like more slots on one server but not a huge deal to me

    They never promised anything. They never do promises. They share their plans, which don't always move forward for whatever reason. Which is why I think they shouldn't share anything until it's set in stone, people will always yell "but they promised!" even though they did not.

    On topic, indeed I would approve of it. More space is always welcome.

    No we weren't. It was an idea, they never said they promised it. Stop QQing at every opportunity. Feel free to provide a source to prove me wrong.

    As for the OP, eh... I don't really care either way. 11 is a lot of characters on a single realm, and while the overall limit wouldn't change an extra 4 characters per realm would mean A LOT of extra data needing to be stored by Blizzard. Because while barely anyone will care about the 50 character limit, more character slots on your 'home' realm will make a lot of people make more alts.

    Do we really need an extra 4 character slots per realm though? Imagine you have 11 characters. That's every profession covered (with plenty of redundancy), every class, and potentially a nice split between Alliance and Horde. Is there really a need for even more than that?

    Of course I'd approve it, nothing wrong with more character slots, not that I really need it atm.

    No way.

    There was a blue post, saying that in MoP you could have all 50 toons on one server.
    Later it was changed to "server limit increased to 11" due to technical difficulties..

    I have 11 characters, all alliance on one realm, the majority of them 80+(two in their 60s and being leveled). I would like at least one more, just to have a horde character on that server. All in all I am one of those rare people that have 33 characters all at decent levels. It would be soooo nice to have them access each others banks, considering I make substantially more gold on one server, but more JP and VP on another lol

    Personally I'd want to see it at either

    A) 50 per realm
    B) 22 per realm
    C) Keep it as it is

    I'm very OCD about it, I have to have a (near) perfect horde/alliance ratio. As it is now, i've just decided to make a horde realm and an alliance realm (it was 5 horde 5 ally previously, can't do that now). Having 15 would just be me re-leveling a few of the same classes just because I feel like I have to. Have no problem what-so-ever of re-leveling the same class from another faction's perspective though.

    I am fine with 5 mages, no need to have 10 or more.

    I'd like it, but I'd like to have a few more than 50 characters. I've actually hit that limit. I try to delete a lot, but I have some characters I don't play but don't want to delete because I am nostalgic.

    This sounds good! I would like this one..... then no technical restrictions would apply for anything for the chars of both factions belonging to 1 battle.net account.

    They said at the last Blizzcon they were thinking of removing the realm limit and allowing players to have all their characters on one realm if they so wished. You can argue that is not a promise, and I am sure you will, however considering how popular this announcement was within the player base they should not have said anything if they were not planning on going through with it.

    Blizzard already allow each account to create 50 characters so where would all the extra data come from?

    Just because you do not need extra character slots does not mean others share you point of view, personally I would love extra slots so I could make characters on the opposite faction and have them use the heirlooms that have been sitting in my bank for ages.
