returning player, character slots

I read there are only 2 character slots in the F2P.  How will they handle returning players existing slots.  If I return will my existing characters be wiped or will I get to choose which to keep?

    EDIT: reading comprehension for the win :)

    If you have more characters than available slots you will be able to chose which ones you can play (& I believe you can change which characters are 'active' when purchasing more slots, I'll see if I can find that post or if it's just in my head :) ). Also,

    subscribers who go free to play will have 4 slots per server (and can pick which 4 characters are playable if they have more on the server). Free to play accounts will start with 2 slots per server

    I don't know if that means all the people who quit in the last 3 years can come back to 4 slots or just those who are subscribers when DDO:EU goes live & then drop down.

    Good answers, Bill!

    There was a Dev post stating that you definitely COULD pick which slots are active and CAN change those slots if/when purchasing more.

    Yep, confirmed. I went from VIP to F2P model in beta last week, because my Sub run out. 4 Characters, you choose which will be active permanently. Then I bought new character slot via Turbine points, and I could activate my fifth character (again, you have a choice which).

    But choose wisely, as it's a permanent choice. You won't be able to choose again until you you buy new slots / VIP sub again.

    Heheh, otherwise it would be like you had all VIP slots.
