Subscribers begin with 24 character slots per server and you are allowed to purchase an additional 40 character slots:

This is what my character selection screen currently looks like:

Over the past two weeks, I have created five new characters and it is still allowing me to create more.
I have 40 slots right now. I'll waste the money and buy a slot and see if it puts me over 40.

It did, so now I have 41 slots, so I'll have to believe Ziva. The wording should be on the cartel market 40 slots above your subscription's limit, not 40 slots total per server. What's described there now for the char slot cartel market item is not indicative of what actually is the final upper limit.

Thanks for checking this. I did get the impression that 40 was max from the CM. Since I'm getting close, I'm glad to see I have some more wiggleroom.

(...And yes, I know. 'Why do I need more than 40 characters' is a good question. I just love starting fresh. )

The per server maximum is 100. See these two post from Eric made prior to United Forces (the server merge). Note that the old per server character slot cap, 52, coincides with the old default per server character allotment for subs, 12, plus the 40 indicated as maximum in the description for Additional Character Slot unlocks. The description is out of date.

One of the questions that has come up regarding United Forces is character slots and what will be happening for everyone. After the update, it is possible that a player could have more characters than they have slots currently. For subscribers they will still be able to play all of their characters (even if they go over their slots) but they canít make any new characters. We wanted to do our best to alleviate some of the issues for not only subscribers, but F2P and preferred status players as well. Here is what you can expect to see changed on November 8 alongside United Forces:
  • F2P players will have a default of 4 characters per server (up from 2)
  • Preferred players will have a default of 12 characters per server(up from 6)
  • Subscribers will have a default of 24 characters per server (up from 12)
  • The maximum character slots per server has been increased to 100 (up from 52)

These new slot numbers are separate from any character slots which you have purchased. For subs, we are basically adding 12 character slots per server to your account (by making the new default 24 instead of 12). Ex:
  • Today, you are a subscriber who has never bought any character slots, you have 12 character slots per server. After the update on 11/8 you will have 24 slots per server.
  • Today, you are a subscriber who has purchased 30 additional character slots, meaning you have 42 per server (12 default + 30 purchased). After the update you will have 54 (24 new default + 30 purchased slots)

This should give a bit of breathing room for players, especially if they played on more than one server which will be brought into a new server on 11/8.

Thanks everyone.

So today, you have 52/52 characters across three servers. When you are on your new server you will have 156 characters and 64 slots (since you will get 12 more from us). You will be able to access all 156, but you cannot create a new character. You can still choose to purchase up to 36 more slots to put you at the new maximum of 100. However, even at this point you cannot create a new character until your total characters is below your total character slots (so 99/100 if you purchase all the slots).

Hope that makes sense!

So despite what the cm says for char slot description, with my 41 slots, I could buy an addition 59 until I topped out at 100?

That is exactly what Eric's post indicates. (Well, that's the way I read it, anyway.)

It was bugged for awhile and even though we were told 100, 62 was the most you could have. They fixed that though. I have 61/67 atm.. I have no problem making new characters.

Keep in mind that there is also an account cap. I am not sure what that number is, but mine says 393.
That means you can't go over that number or make new characters on any server if you are over that cap.
To see it, hover your cursor over the little globe on the character select screen.. it is just left of your character total for the server.
