I understand that you don't want to lose the characters you love. But have you no room for love of the new characters to be created?
The first characters are going to be filled with errors, false starts, and errata'ed materials. From gloves of reconnaissance to Crane Style, things will change that will affect how your character works, and that will frustrate us. So do you really want that PFS1e character that you ported over to be the bearer of that responsibility?
Don't get me wrong, I love my 23 characters, two of which are seekers. I ran 50 games from mid-Jan to the beginning of August last year to reach my 5 stars by Gen Con. I have a Rougarou/Catfolk/Naiad that is unused. I organized or attended 13 conventions last year, earning that many convention boons. Empathy, I have.
But logic rules, and I know that I do not want to bring over my characters. I want to start with a clean slate. I don't want to have reference materials and endless things to sort with a GM before sitting at a table because I have a legacy PFS1e character. I want to embrace 2.0 with all the new and shiny it can be. I don't want to tarnish it with complicated cross over information that we don't fully understand... and let's face it, it would be another thing to argue over in these same forums.
Before your mourning begins, we have 5 months before the playtest comes out. And another year beyond before 2.0 becomes the standard. If you have that character that you do not want to see go - PLAY IT! By the gods, there is plenty of time to retire one or two. Attend conventions, support your community. Play online. Play that character until it hits seeker, and then let it go.
