WIPE
« on: March 23, 2017, 13:00 »
When will be wipe?
Its nearly 2.5years from new session.
And as i see there's <100 people online at server, wipe should bring them back and new faces also.

Edit: Removed not so nice part in not right language.

NEVAAAAAAAAAR

*Insanity kicks in*

Follow tracker. There are up to 150 players average online:

As long as server doesn't hit status of byond games that are popular (40~ players average even with all the advertising.) then I won't even worry about playerbase. It's a game after all, not a number chase. Have fun and enjoy it or do something else. Either is fine.

Your logic is invalid.

Wipe brings curious people for a couple of months and they leave after and wait for another wipe, doesn't matter so many things get reworked or implemented.

Waiting for the wipe is the worst thing you could do. Either play or not, that is all.

We are straying off from wipe politics because we maybe not have the best economy and balance but it's strong enough to keep things going.

Wipes are required by engine limitations, no way to rework some things like maps (So no way to fix the townhouses for example. Or to rebalance some things in builds but that is solved with rerolls.)

Alexander! I summon you, my faithful comrade! Say your sentence! Please.

250 ≠ 205 Wesan  ;D
Xsarqopedia has been fully replaced with Official Wiki. You can expect the newest updates to be added on official wiki just like at old times.

It doesn't work this way and doesn't keep new faces also.

Yes but with the new feature tech progression there is a case for wipe more often, not just when big changes are to be made.

This way it just discourages more people from playing. Not everyone is a basement dweller playing 24/7 to win the rat race and gather all the pixels, some people take a break from game for weeks or even months. If it's not pure roleplay server so wipes could be justified by storyline or GM-driven lore changing the gameworld totally, having a wipe just to start pixel race again and again is pointless.

If you are bored, invite random strangers from Hub to your base and let them wipe it for you.

A race for pixels on a game with basically no pixels is kind of funny. Relaunching with tech progression is currently the only way to include lower tier weapons into the game. I also find that there's little to do once established besides group fighting.

Although seeing these kinds of numbers does show that FOnline2 has blossomed into something fairly enjoyable (edit* for all playstyles) in a long running instance, I still would like to see more endgame content for non group pvpers, such as a crafting system for rare decorations and a few more event types like the barrel events I proposed. I think we could get the numbers up by doing that, basically because it will give me a reason to log back on being a solo player with no more goals.
