@Doombug-999 said in Deleting a character:
Right, but at the moment it isn’t even an option. So once we make three characters in the beta, we’re stuck with those until the full game. Which isn’t a big deal, but I just couldn’t get the deletion option to even activate and wasn’t sure if others were encountering the same issue.
It's actually how the Japanese version works as well. The delay in deletion is by design and not an "issue". It's to prevent people from making hasty decisions on deleting their characters and losing a bunch of stuff. Providing protection from accidental deletion as well, since you can stop the deletion process.
Right now, you might think it's a hindrance because you were just goofing around and don't care too much about those characters. But when someone has spent hundreds or thousands of hours on a character and, perhaps in a fit of emotion, deletes their character or someone hacks their account, they may change their mind and like to stop the deletion process from occurring.
If you still want to goof off, perhaps play on a different ship and use some blank slots there.
