How many character slots?

Unread postby TDGeorge » Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:25 am

GG, I know you mentioned the game will utilize one mega server. My question is: During character creation, how many character slots will be available at launch? Also, are you still planing to throw out a game slice? If so, when?

Thanks im advance.

Work on the game slice is continuing, but the number of character slots hasn't been finalized yet.

As far as character slots go, I'm sure there will be considerations for free play vs sub/VIP play, with less slots available with the former and more slots available with the latter. This is just my guess, as you may have something completely different in mind for free play and sub/VIP play.

Thanks in advance.

Well, since it's a Superhero game, probably there will be alts all around, so it's better if a big number of maximun Character Slots is allowed.

matixzum: Yeah, I had quite a number of toons on all servers (my home was Infinity). With a gazillion combos in the Character Creator, it was hard to make the exact toon twice (but still loads of fun).

i'm with 3 character slots for FTP, and more for elite or life time players. and like what COH/COV had done; you buy more later if you really want them.. MMO's cost alot of money to keep going so being able to provide a fun FTP system with a residual income from many side aspects that can generate a few dollars here and there.. this is definantly one of them.

Champions had 2 I think, I know I bought a number of slots as a FTPlayer. I also bought a number of costume items and class types. As for FTP classes, I'm with Wiz on 3 free, and suggest the same number for FTP classes. These should also be Staple Classes kinda like the World of Greyhawk was to Dungeon and Dragons. Except Trollers instead of Healers. I think Healing should be incorporated into various classes should have healing abilities. Being the dedicated healer means that you can't solo at all. But that's another topic I suppose

I agree with Tdgeorge , if this is what I believe he's saying. I think that some slots should be bought
through membership. There should as well be 3 slots. Of course, their shouldn't be too much slots and their shouldn't be a minimum amount. This is where it's complicated, their should be an amount that won't be too little nor too much. I agree with most of the posts , saying 3. :|

Kettera: IMHO, you can't have too many toon slots. :lol: I do agree with 2-3 for free play and maybe 8-12 for sub/VIP (depending on the generosity of the devs).

This sounds like a good starting point with 3 for free and 12 for VIP.
