Now I don't know this for sure, but I think your allowed to keep all of them seeing as they are already made. That's usually how this goes, they will just have all the advantages of a subscriber striped from them.

In Lord of the rings online if you are F2P and have e.g. 9 chars but can only use 7 it will ask you to pick 2 in a check box and those will be the ones you can play.

Hello PirateBAMF,

To answer your question, if you convert to Preferred Status, you will need to choose which six (6) of your characters will remain active, and play those characters within the limits of Free-to-Play access.

For more information on Free-to-Play features, please also see our Subscription, Preferred, Free-to-Play Features Comparison Page.

Thanks.

Well, here's what happened to me. I was a subscriber at launch and played for 8 months. I logged back on when F2P arrived and saw that I had 8 of 2 character slots filled on two servers. I waited a day and decided to resubscribe. I logged on to see I had 1 character on each server - the other 7 on each had been erased by a bug. I have waited about 28 days so far for them to restore my characters and not heard anything...

So long story short, if you let your subscription run out, you run the very real chance of having your characters erased by Bioware.
