  • In a developer blog titled “The Importance of Player Feedback with the New Free-to-Play Option”, Jeff Hickman announced that Preferred players would be getting 4 quickslot bars (up from 2), 6 account-wide character slots (up from 2), and that the current limit of 50 characters account-wide for subscribers would be drastically increased.
