You don't need to delete old characters. You can re-use a character and convert them to a seasonal. It does put them at level 1 and it does mail their stuff to your non-seasonal account, but that helps conserve slots. I know that I'm basically full myself so this prevents me from needing to delete and re-make.

As far as deleting and keeping achieves, I believe the answer is that you do keep your achievements even if you delete a character.

Is KOTOR considered EU? If so, it's non-canon now.

Grim Dawn is pretty so-so in my opinion. POE has a lot more flexibility.

The chars transfer to "standard" league after the league ends. So once Perandus ends and the new one begins (which is probably in the next few weeks) they will transfer. All your stuff will too into new remove-only stash tabs.

On item progression: I tend to stop grabbing anything non-yellow around level 20 to give a good base of mats. Yellows give a lot of alteration orb mats, but many of the old timers only focus on picking up items they might use, especially as you progress. Currency really becomes ideal. I also suggest a loot filter (NeverSink's is pretty good) and that will more or less tell you what is worth picking up, and it also scales so that you stop seeing white items that are no good around 25 or 30, and so on.

Stash tabs are pretty good, but it only takes a few to really accommodate - and they do go on sale from time to time. The currency stash tab is actually really nice imo, but most people think it should be standard and not paid for.

Yeah the MMO they conceived sounded ambitious but potentially not fun. Glad they scaled it back.

Sorry for linking kotaku but that is the best article on it. You can see the roots of Overwatch that come from Titan.

Unfortunately lacking on details of what Titan was. I understand why Blizzard is quiet about it, but I'd love to see more on what Titan was and not just how it failed.

I'll be the first to say that it's Yoda's daughter, taking after her mother of course.

She looks pretty good for probably being 500 years, then.

JJ Abrams recently said that Rey's parents are not in the Force Awakens at a fan event.  I've also heard that Rey's parents really aren't anything special, from Daisy Ridley and the director from Episode VIII.

Those kind of throw wrenches into my theories after seeing it in the theaters.  However, those could just be red herrings to get the hounds off the scent of the truth!

And he is a bald faced liar.

For star trek, he claimed that Benedct Cumberbatch wasn't in the movie.  Then, after finally acknowledging his casting claimed Benedict was play an original villian, not Kahn. 

Oh, and jar Jar Abrams has already back tracked on Rey's parents were not in Episode 7.

I don't have Mad's hatred of JJ, but yes, when it comes to plot surprises, he is a damn dirty liar. He lied about Khan in the second Star Trek, flat out, and as Mad said, he already walked back the comments, saying, “What I meant was that she doesn’t discover them in Episode VII. Not that they may not already be in her world."

You can debate that it means Luke, Leia, Han aren't her parents, or that she didn't discover that any of them were her parents. And until we see the movie, I'd take everything said by anyone involved as hearsay. I would assume the reveal of her lineage will be a secret like Darth Vader being Luke's father, and it will come in either the first or last 5 minutes of the movie.

12
I still think JJ threw a smokescreen and that Luke is her father, her mother was a potential Jedi trainee and their love is what caused the issues with Ben Solo and the Knights of Ren. I don't think the Lucasfilm team is bold enough to stray away from having a Skywalker as the central character. I may very well be wrong but I didn't see anything that threw me off that. I don't give much credence the the Kenobi's granddaughter theory either, though I suppose that could be true and does have symmetry as Luke would train her as Obi-wan trained him; except I think they would have done that in VII.

You can make the case that the version you bought is no longer online as an accessible product. As Kotagg said, that's a slippery slope of other legal avenues, and that's what I meant with clever wording of EULA/TOS: it may very well be that those items don't entitle us to access. But a court might find that language not compelling in the face of consumer rights for purchasing a product no longer accessible. I can write a contract, but if it breaks the law then it is non-binding. Courts might also find the argument that purchasing a license is akin to owning something, meaning you have a reasonable expectation to access with your purchase.

Courts lately have not been that pro-consumer, but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen. I don't think we're likely to see a suit, but who knows.

Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

If someone were to legally purchase and legitimately support a relaunch of Pre-CU SWG with upscaled graphics and future plans for expansion, I'd pay full price for it.

I like your ideas regarding what the "originally-purchased product" of WoW was, but I think it would be a stretch to argue it in court. That road is slippery and set at a high-grade slope. ;)

I think it was already made, however, in the case of people owning a game that someone shut the servers off and which would not run without the server, and then the entity tried to block the users when they created their own server to run it. Can't remember the game or where it was, but that was a fairly recent development. If you could prove that vanilla WoW was no longer accessible in a court of law, I think the precedent applies, though I'm not sure if it was a US court either.

Certainly its a slippery slope and the argument is probably cut off at the knees by something clever in the TOS or EULA, but the other case did happen, or at least I recall reading about it.
