They're working on it. But they won't give you 16 slots per server. Maybe 10, but not 16.

I am just curious on how the transfer process will start? Will we have to go to a link and sign up or automatically be transfered? Nothing says what we will need to do on our end to get in line for transfer!?!?

Not at all. The industry is just extremely competitive for MMOs.

Your limited viewpoint. How could you say they don't like user-driven content? 31.5 million registered users of Minecraft would disagree with you. And of those 31.5 million registrations, 6.2 million bought the game. That would put SWTOR to shame even at its highest subscriber count. And don't forget Second Life. I never played Second Life, but it's all user driven content.

And do not like sandbox content? Every EVE Online player would disagree too.

Fact is, the numbers prove that user-generated content and sandbox MMOs are FAR more popular than amusement-park MMOs. The problem here is the cross-over of console titles. They're predominately amusment-park and have drawn a huge chunk of the PC amusement-park gaming crowd over there.

I dunno, I think they will. It might be expensive to get a full 8 more slots, but I think they will.

Link, please. Or are you just pulling that out of you-know-where again? I see a trend with you.

I'd be ecstatic if they gave us 16 character slots, but I just can't see it. WoW is finally increasing their slots from 10 to 11 and only if you buy MoP....lol. Those crazy pandas.

In EQ2 you can buy as many character slots as you want.

Well, since today is the 11th and we still haven't heard a word aside from "expect them on the 12th," I'm skeptical that this is even going to happen, at this rate. They need to give us something about how this process will work or I'm forced to believe they still haven't figured it out themselves. No offense here, just honest concern.
