If I were to cancel subscription one month what would happen to the extra characters I make? After the standard two slots?

I have no intention of unsubscribing but I just wondered. Just incase.

Thanks

Since you've been a paid subscriber, you would instantly drop to preferred (not free to play) status. That comes with 6 characters (not 2).

You would be required to flag which 6 characters you want playable the first time you logged in and at that point your other characters would "go away." If you resubscribed, they'd become visible again. Once you make your initial choice, you'd be stuck with those 6 character slots and deleting a character would not fill the slot in with one of your other characters, but it would result in a free slot available to make a new character.

As of now, the limitation described by Draloch does not apply for technical reasons.

If you have 10 characters and go F2P, the 10 are all available for you to pick and play. There are currently no mechanism that makes you choose 2 (and soon 6 for privileged) active characters out of your entire roster.

Blaine Christine mentioned that "in the future" EAware will put the restrictions in place but with no date.
