So the aftermath of our brouhaha yesterday about players who have been (admittedly) taking advantage of having more than 7 characters on an EQ2 account (or more than 12 characters on a Station Access account) has been rather swift and conciliatory.
The good news from SmokeJumper:
We’ve talked it over further and there is new news on this front:
- We’re going to rollback this feature next Tuesday (8/24). You’ll be able to access all your characters at that time.
- You’ll have seven days to get onto your account and pull items off any characters you desire if you want to shuffle stuff around.
- On Tuesday (8/31), we’ll turn the feature back on and all accounts will be limited to the proper number of character slots.
If you ensure that the characters you want to keep are the last ones you have logged in before 8/31, then those are the ones that will be available when the feature is re-implemented.
Again, the feature rollback will be in this coming Tuesday’s hotfix (8/24) and you’ll have access to all your characters again starting on that day until the following Tuesday (8/31).
Asked why this wasn’t responded to sooner, or why such a grace period was not offered earlier:
Well…to be honest, I admit we made a mistake here. In hind sight, it’s kind of a “no duh” thing to do. Our only excuse is that we’ve been very busy, yet that’s a pretty lame excuse. But we’re making good as rapidly as possible.
