ok, this is annoying...i have to wait 5 freakin hours to delete my character!!

why the biomass processing queue bs?? i would guess that its to stop players from deleting and creating character so often it fries the login servers, but why a global system? blizzard did it right by not allowing you to delete a character before it was 'alive' for less than X-hours...

as if we didnt do enough waiting in eve already, they make us wait hours to delete an old character that hasnt been used in weeks...

It was not to deal with server spamming, but to deal with professional corp rip-and-runners who would create a char, rip off a corp, then delete it and immediately create one to rip off someone else.

The question i would like answered is why do you need to create new characters faster than that????

How many new characters do you need?
1 every 10 minutes...?

Well there is always the possibility that you could be hacked and your charachters deleted. I think this is designed as one of the safe guards. I like the change.

It keeps people from creating disposable characters to do things like check markets and scout dangerous routes.

Don't like it? Dn't complain to CCP complain to the people who where eploiting the ability to do create and delete characters quick.

It's not to stop corp ripoffs, you can't, it's so they can be tracked before they delete all the characters they used.

Also, it stops accidental deletions.

I cant imagine why you should be able to create charaters faster then that.
Its not a problem, unless you have a serious disease making you always pressing wrong buttons.

sadly, part of the problem with the new system, is that you don't realise you're on the final screen in char creation.

A char summary page, or a big finish button would clear this up nicely.

Tyanis, Storeslem, pray tell us what scams you were pulling that you can't do anymore due to the 5 hour wait?

Well, lots of new players like to try out a bunch of stuff and recycle. I use alts to check prices in other empire areas. but can only check 2 of the 4 regions... was kind of nice to be able to throw them away and make a new one of different race.

It's also a pain that you don't know when you're on the last page of char creation... no option to confirm or go back. IMHO, there should be a summary-page with a confirmation button so you can review your char.

page 1 of 10... page 2 of 10......... page 10 of 10... and for a overview, look in the bottom, all the skills u will start with is on that list ;)

Yay my first deleted post was in this topic.
Have to write it again then.

I just have to agree this is a completely useless feature, the 5 min to prevent accidental deletion is ok, however when it approaches 5 hours its pathetic.

Same with your account being hacked, if you're lucky you have deleted several chars on forehand so the hacker must wait what, seventeen hours to delete all your chars. However if you haven't then he only needs to wait 5 mins. Anyways, I'm fairly sure we can assume hacking is a close to nonexistant problem. Linking accounts to cd keys (in the installed game files) would anyways solve this much simpler.

Especially I hate it when "damn, I picked the wrong profession in step 10"

Yah lets wait 8 and 5/3 hours for a new character.

Aendor I was not doing scams or anything other abusing the system. Its as simple as I sometimes get bored of my char and want to create a new one, however I dont want to wait 15 hours.

So better keep your tongue on track, prick.
