I'm wondering is there any reason to wipe at all? I know that the wipe for 1.0 is coming, but that indeed makes so much sense, since the stage the game will be at that point, will be different from the one we've been experiencing.
Currently on the test version we hold the builds done prior and the new "character" that holds no plots or coins to start with. If we were to transition the current test version to live, the builders and people building will have to use the current resources to advance, as they will be limited by skills. Thus making them have to progress in order to continue building their projects. No one will be able to bypass the progression in order to generate their projects. Making everyone offer insight from their own standpoint.
Wiping the maps just generates unnecessary changes to something that is working just fine. "Getting used to wipes" seems unnecessary IMO, everyone is ready to accept the coming 1.0 wipe, but having wipes before it, unless it's truly necessary, just seems redundant. The test version having builds done by the community, hasn't stopped them from reporting what's not working, I don't see how not wiping the live version when it comes out, will prevent that.
