I am not sure if we are allowed to message the developers directly unless we paid the top level or 2 in the founders package.
So I figured I would ask the question here…
@james can you please give us some direction on when the next possible world and server wipes will be?
I know that no one wants to lose what they have but I have talked with many people on the side and they can see how a wipe would be beneficial to the game. 1) It would give you all a new chance to release different types of planets so we could see and test the other planet bio designs. 2) It would baseline everyone with the new skill, plot, monster dynamics, and everything else that has been put in this year. 3) It would allow us to see how cities actually grow in the new plot dynamics versus the way it was previously without plots or beacons 4) It would allow people to start all 3 characters to test the multiple character needs of hunter, miner, builder, etc.
I am sure there are many more reasons why it would be helpful. I am also very aware about how controversial this is to some people and how many people might vow they would quit if they lost everything they have now in the game. But I have seen many people leave lately or take breaks because there is nothing new for them to do.
I know you said there likely would be one right before 1.0 release but there is no data on when that would be. So I guess the question is would there be another wipe BEFORE that one you mentioned about happening before 1.0. I understand if you cannot give a straight answer but I guess for those of us that have brought it up and would like to see one, it would be nice to know if there will be one soon (1,2, 3, 4 months) or much later in 2018 or even 2019.
If you feel it would be helpful to hear from the community about if a wipe would be nice or not, we can turn this thread into that but I don’t want to cause a big discussion if you guys don’t see a wipe happening at any point in the next 6-12 months.
