So let me get this straight: We will be able to get more overall characters across all servers, but what about the maximum number of characters on ONE server? I have no desire to start a Legacy all over on a different type of Server, I want all my characters to fit into the same Legacy and benefit from all the stuff I've already unlocked.

If this was just about a server-wide increase of character slots, wouldn't this be kind of counter-productive?

Vertos, Sith Juggernaut | Zedas, Sith Sorcerer | Ysari, Sniper | Neith, Powertech

Max is still 12 and Bioware is thinking about charging people if they already have more than 12 on one server right now because of the past server merges.

Clearly the new character screen supports more then 12 characters AND they have said they will allow more then 12 in the future. But they have not said exactly how (ie: paid character expansion, transfers, etc) OR when.

This is where patience plays a role, once again.

Yes, I have 16 on Harbinger right now, so its easily obtainable without any changes right now.

Rather then the ability to create over 50 charactes across all servers (which i find massively uselss and hysterical that that is the only thing the subbers got in the "we've been listening" post) why not finally do something about server transfers whether they are free or paid.

Ex. I have a level 30+ Agent out on another server I originally created a bit after launch to play with a friend of mine who had a guild over there. He is generally useless now since my friend unsubbed as well as his guild. I would love to have him in my legacy on Shadowlands with my other toons and finish up his story line.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

16 advanced classes and thus 16 character slots per server , I have already lost legacy levels with the last merge so I too don't want more characters on a different server. 5 servers of 16 would be 80 characters but I only want 16.

They are indeed thinking of charging us for extra slots above the 12 this is the reason why they haven't received any money above my sub for any cartel related stuff. Come on BioWare let's have it!
