    Hello,

    I cannot delete one of my character slots, because the character is still being played... though I haven't logged on with that character in days.
    The character is well over the 7 day age limit.

    Does this have something to do with how copper coins are allocated to accounts?

    (Lion is currently to stubborn to be deleted) it doesn't make sense.

    You probably understand by now but for anyone else researching this recurring subject...

    TLDR - "long" counts

    So, why can't players delete characters with murder counts, when there is already a seven day limit on deleting pixelmen?
    I will currently have to just wait for 120 hours to delete my dude? by wait i mean, in game. just... wait?

    Yes, correct.

    This is the price of murder.

    It seems silly.. But you have to remember how quickly and easily someone can make a 5x or even 7x PvPer.

    You make it VERY easy for people to just delete and re-make a PK when their murder counts are too high or stat loss has kicked in.

    There has to be some kind of penalty for making a PK and getting killed(which is stat loss, but deleting the character would then negate that penalty).

    Heck, I remember a certain someone that was making 12 characters all 5x overnight to have 60+ counts to go around.

    It does seem silly.
    (also I dont consider killing a bot murder)

    if that certain someone was creating characters over night, then they would still be under the effect of the 7 day rule.
    that training would cost some type of resources. smart gameplay mechanics.

    deleting a dude should just delete the dude, dude!

    Nope. No immunity for murderers. Being able to stay logged in to burn counts is easy enough as is.

    The issue was not people making complete characters and deleting. It was people making brand new characters. Using that char to mass town kill. Delete character. Repeat.

    Just page staff and they'll jail the char, reset the counts for you so you can delete it.

    Seems like an issue that will sort itself out with time.
    Not going to ask for special service due to lack of knowledge on my part.

    Not when 'by choice' you play on one account.
