    The only way you're at risk of losing an account is if you do something stupid and get perma-banned or they close down the servers forever. They don't purge accounts.

    Even when they did do a purge, they didn't hit character names above like level 5 or 10, and I think it was only ones from AOL days. They haven't done one in a long time though.

    Well thats confusing, the policy of the game said it purges characters, its even at the wiki.

    It is just to cover themselves.

    What do you mean by "cover themselves"? If characters don't disappear then why do returning players always start anew,?

    We don't always start a new. My mains were created 15 to 20 years ago. I take years off from the game but come back, open the accounts, and pick up where they left off

    Reserving the right, not that it already isn't enshrined in other places.

    Why do you think returning players start anew? Most do not, or they dip their toes in after extended breaks with free accounts now perhaps before activating their paid accounts.

    I took a 7 year break ('08-'15) and my accounts were exactly as I left them when I returned.

    Don't fear the reaper.
