Question about account age and the Cerebral Accelerator

I currently have my active account, and a second account still in trial. I definitely want to fully activate the second account, and the Cerebral Accelerator is a mighty tempting offer. The Cerebral Accelerator says it only works on pilots under 35 days old, and only on the first character created on that account. So my question is this: since I have extremely little invested in this trial account, if I were to delete all of the characters, apply the boxed edition to upgrade it to the full version, and create a new character, would it be eligible for the full 35 days of the Accelerator? It would certainly meet the age requirements, the question is that while it may be the only character on the account, it technically isn't the first.

Obviously the easy solution is just to create a new email account and apply the box to that, but I don't like having 1000 throwaway email accounts, so it's really just a question of convenience and curiosity at this point. Big smile

You will have to ask a GM. Not that they would know better but they would have to fix it if they say "yes" and it ain't work. A long long time ago there was no need for creating another e-mail account, I buddy invited myself twice. That may or may not work these days. Only one way to find out, right?

If you take all the sand out of the box, only the cat poo will remain.

You do not have to create a new email.

One email can be registered to multiple accounts. Not only that, you can send buddy invites to the same email you registered from.

I do not know if the box set key is eligible for the buddy invite bonus. I know a GM answered that a month or so ago, but i cannot find the post on the old forums...
