  2. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "300 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  3. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "700 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  4. = 4 (Total Characters w/ both veteran awards and before buying extra Character Slots with Zen)

Current (and prior?) Gold (non-lifetime) Subscriber Accounts
  1. 2 (Base Character Slots; 1 FED-restricted, 1 KDF-restricted; both unrestricted if created before Season 5)
  2. +1 (Extra Character Slot for current subscribers; unrestricted)
  3. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "300 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  4. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "700 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  5. = 5 (Total Characters w/ both veteran awards and before buying extra Character Slots with Zen)

Current Lifetime Accounts
  1. 2 (Base Character Slots; 1 FED-restricted, 1 KDF-restricted; both unrestricted if created before Season 5)
  2. +1 (Extra Character Slot for current subscribers; unrestricted)
  3. +2 (Extra Character Slots for lifetime subscribers; unrestricted)
  4. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "300 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  5. +1 (Extra Character Slot for "700 Days" veterans; unrestricted)
  6. = 7 (Total Characters w/ both veteran awards and before buying extra Character Slots with Zen)

Since you stated that you currently have 5 characters/character slots and have achieved the 300 Days and 700 Days veterans accolades, your account is in line with the "Current (and prior?) Gold (non-lifetime)" category.

Even if you have already fallen out of Gold status into Silver, and you have 5 existing characters (no empty character slots), you will continue to have access to your 5 characters. As Silver, if you have an empty character slot and/or delete 1 of your 5 existing characters, you may or may not lose access to the 5th character slot. I would very much prefer to confirm for you whether you get to keep your 5th character slot regardless of subscriber status, but there are too many conflicting reports (and no official Cryptic/PWE posts to point to) for me to do so.

Also, since you can only buy extra Character Slots in sets of 2 or 4, and assuming you did get the 300 Days award, the only other legitimate way for you to have 5 characters is if a) you lost the extra Gold character slot, b) you did not get the 700 days veteran award, and c) you purchased a set of 2 extra Character Slots. This scenario seems less likely than you being a current or previous Gold subscriber with the 5 characters that you should have.
I was Gold when hitting 700days, i had 5 character slots, so i achieved the ability to delete one of my toons and keep the slot, as opposed to receive 1 additoinal slot. Because this seems to be where this is going. However, as a legacy player (gold pre season 5 and also 300day vet before season 5, i had 5 slots unlocked. This is still BS, since i could never fill my additoinal sot with a toon. I was gold at 700 days, and nothing happend, i would be fine with loosing the slot if i delete the toon, bu i never had that option. STill waiting for a meaningful response from Cryptic, this is even more ridiculous then the pathetic state of PvP development.

STill thanks for the help everyone, really curious how this is going to play out in the end
