“One of the questions that came out of the Dark vs. Light Event announcement was the current maximum character limits per server,” he writes. “There are some players who have all 40 slots filled, and were concerned about participating in the event. I wanted to let you know that we are actively testing right now the possibility of increasing that maximum by 10. That would mean that a subscriber could have a server maximum of 50 characters. We are exploring if this is a safe change to make and I am hopeful that I will have an answer about this today.”
You will, of course, still have to pay to unlock the number of slots you need.
