SWTOR Developers looking into 22 character server limit
With the 12X XP Bonus, it is no doubt that some players are reaching the 22 character per server limit. Bioware developers are looking into increase that but no confirmations yet.
22 Character Per Server Limit…..Any plans to increase it? | 10.23.2014, 09:20 PM
I know there have been a lot of questions about the 22 characters per server limit, why it is there, and any plans to increase it. I talked to the team here to get answers to that. When we increased the character per server limit to 22, it was decided at that time that 22 was as high as we could go without beginning to impact performance.
What I can tell you now, is that we know there is a solid demand for some players to be able to go above 22. Our team is very actively looking into whether or not we would be able to make this increase. Certainly, we want to offer you as many character slots as possible, but we have to make sure it won’t impact your game performance as well. Caveat as usual, this isn’t confirmation it will happen, but we are looking into it and I will give you any updates as I have them!
TLDR – That the cap is in place to guard from performance issues but we are actively interested in, and investigating, increasing that cap if we can.
