Ok just happened overnight. i have 12 characters and 13 character slots. the extra character slot was from i think either some giveaway or something during romulan expansion or delta expansion. i don't remember a long time now. anyway this morning it says i am full up. as in i lost that character slot and 12 characters is the most i am able to have. i remember from past forums i don't remember the source but 51 is the max unless said person is a lifetime then it is up to 56. again from some old post i remember reading. anyway that is the strangest glitch. i made a bug report but is anyone getting this issue or is it just me. so yeah 12 slots that are full up. i had a free slot number 13 that is gone not and apparently to the user interface i can't even buy new slots if i wanted to. because there is no buy option. well i can still buy the slot from c-store i think but not going to attempt and waste my zen.

    There's actually a well known bug where people lost one slot as a result of last week's patch. Does not matter how many slots you already have (I went from 22 to 21).

    See other threads in this forum, i.e. "MISSING CHARACTER SLOT SINCE HOUSE UNITED UPDATE"

    Thank you wesmetal for the info. but i find it weird since i took a few days for me to loose the slot. i mean i though patch cause issue usually happen right away not take a few days to kick in and mess with people accounts. but i guess once there is a patch glitch it happens at random. again thanks for the heads up.

    Support almost always marks things "solved" when they reply (unless they expect a further response from you). I personally think they should change the term to something else as it does not mean that the issue in game has been dealt with.

    I deleted a Ferasan character I made when that race was part of a giveaway a little while ago. With that character gone, I now do not have an empty character slot, but the game claims I'm at my max.
    I do not remember if I had a free slot immediately after the deletion of that character, but I believe that was the case, and the slot later disappeared.

    Yeah i pretty sure they are treating losing a character slot as a feature at this point. too bad we gave you a slot during the recruitment event and if you don't use it we will take it back. Well that is what i am assuming. Then we are less then 24 hours ( can't be bother to do to the math in the middle of a post ), i assume the reintroduction of the gamma recruit comes back with a new character slot. see how generous of the devs to give you a free slot. if that happens i want it on record i predicted it. so if it happens i would get a free slot that i had in in the first place back. so i would assume people that never lost a slot would actually get a free slot. so yeah cryptic. stuff like that happens enough to say i feel if they had features like the GD ev-slot planned and probably tested but glitchy... they might as well release it at this point since account glitches that take slots away is happening anyway and they don't know what cause it and will no figure it out anyway because of how random it is. it is not like how they lose a boff slot or a ship slot or a that docking/mothballing a ship slot... i don't remember what those slots are called but yeah i have heard things about the slots disappear but come back after leaving and coming back to the map. How bad can something like a evsuit slot break the game as this point. i mean at worst equip it on the regular armor slot. sorry just venting a bit. there is still the issues that will probably popup again of losing saved loadouts and missing slotted traits which occurs after patches. I haven't seen it in the last few minor patches. but when i does it would mess up atleast 1or 2 of my characters or atmost half of them would randomly have to check traits to make sure they stick. cross your fingers that doesn't occur for the major patch we are getting with elements that had previous settings preset for the event that recruitment event tomorrow. i am sure the old glitches will overwrite the fix to a problem with the problem because track record. If it doesn't well, i guess someone actually made changes saved changes and actually remember version 7 or something and not load up version 1 to make minor changes to save it as version 8. well done ranting. i feel better now.

    Nope! They gave out a free slot for each NEW recruitment event, but they do not give out additional ones for rerun recruitment events.

    from patch notes:
    Resolved an issue that was preventing extra characters slots from displaying properly.

    just logged in and... the (one) slot I had been missing since House United is back to displaying as available. (I've been keeping one since last summer in hopes of a Temporal rerun, have not made any new characters except for the Klingon Recruit using the new slot we got for that event.)
