What's the rationale behind this? If you have access to veteran rewards, why such a wonky system where there's no way to know for sure how many 'slots' you have remaining on your account. Why are there slots anyway? What would be the harm in simply auto-applying whatever veteran rewards you have access to on an account to any character created on that account? That would encourage people to create more characters, and to play more EQ, which is better for Daybreak's bottom line. How is that not a win-win?
