Several Open betas for MMORPGS I have played in the past usually let you keep your characters when open beta goes retail. I was curious as to if anyone has heard anything about this yet?

you keep your name if your on the same server, and your character design is saved to your HDD, but your stats will be reset.

Yes they will be tied over... but you are bound to the server you select in the OB

Not sure how its done exactly... wether we'll have to create a dummy character first to get to the server screen or if it'll be handed straight to us on startup... we'll have to wait n see :P

That is what happened from closed beta to open beta isn't it?

when you create your char, there is a list that pops up with a slot to save the design in. When you get release you'll be able to (supposedly) use that template on any server. Your name from Beta however will only pass on to retail if you remain on the same server.

Nothing, not even the names of the servers (or our beta access >.>).

You don't get to keep your characters when the game starts official service. If you create a character on the same server you used for the open beta, you can keep your character's name. If you have the backup files for your character's appearance, you can import it so you don't have to redo all the little details. Character progression and inventory will not carry over.
