    You don't know that making inventory expansion slots account bound would reduce revenue, you suspect that it might, but you don't have any data to support that assertion. It is very possible that many people would purchase more inventory slots if they could use them on all of their characters.

    At this late date, whether more people would buy account-wide bag upgrades is a moot point. The real issue from ANet's point of view would be the demands for compensation from all of the players who did buy the character-bound slots.

    Still waiting for my compensation from the making the unlimited gathering tools account bound. I had 8 sets before they changed them.

    And if bag slots were made account bound, they would likely do the same thing - not compensate players that had them for more than 30 days, on the basis that they got value out of them before the change. If you bought it right before the change, you could do a support ticket and get refunded the money.
    So there is precedent for Anet changing this, and how they handled it.

    That's why I don't buy them (also looking at you, build/gear template slots), I'd rather spend more gold on making 32 slots bag & it's more flexible to switch main character later on, I hate to be locked with options: ofcoz one could argue that just spend more gems to unlock slots on the toon I switched to, but then the slots that I've already paid for became wasteful as I don't use it anymore. If I've more gems I'd rather spend on something more bang for bucks like account wide unlock such as bank tabs or shared inventory slots.

    I think one way to fix this is they add more available slot to unlock, keeping the old slots as character wide, but the new extra slots as account wide. You now have both systems/options coexisting, though it might make things more complicated just like the 3-colours crystal system for strike mission, but it will save them having to refund the players who already bought the character wide bag slots.

    They can just refund bag expansions when a character is deleted as a way to solve this problem...

    There may be database limitations that might prevent additional slots.

    I am a very casual player.

    equipping 5 32 slots bags would be a good way to get around it. 32s are accound bound. Swap where needed. Approx 800 gems each. 5 x 32 = 160

    Same as with all their Account upgrades.I buy the ones I really NEED when they are discounted for gold or I stay away from them altogether.
    Probably would buy then all if they were cheaper. Don't really care if they are accbound or soulbound. But those prices are just too high.
