Additionally, there has already been a great deal of praise given to individuals within this community who have contributed positively to the playerbase in a multitude of ways. @the-moebius and his plaza; The portal seekers and Hunter’s Highway (@TPranara) and Jeff’s portal system (@Jeffrotheswell), etc. Other builds like the Pharoah’s pyramid, aquatopia, the Hive, Pixelgate, etc. have all had their acclaim. One thing we all knew going into this was that these builds aren’t permanent. It even says it every single time you log in that this is a pre-live version with potential wipes, etc.
One of things you also need to consider is that when this game launches the size and scope will be significantly different. So the therka market, Aquatopia, portal hubs, will be irrelevant based upon the new layouts of planets etc. It gives everyone an opportunity to start fresh, make clean builds using the knowledge they already have from playing for so long and doing it more efficiently. I’m really excited for what a lot of these groups have already stated they have in store for the post 1.0 launch =)
