    Gentlemen,

    I want to know.. would current players support a full wipe (literally full wipe) upon the release of Embers of War if it coincided with Shroud streaming the game on Twitch to an audience of 30k+ players (maybe more).

    TL;DR. Would you guys support a full wipe if it meant there was a chance of a huge population increase long term?

    No because a wipe would accomplish nothing. We'd have our characters and banks back in no time and nothing would change.

    A holding wipe though for a meaningful territory control system? Perhaps.

    Do you not think a wipe would give the allowance for new players to join without being 2 years behind progress wise? Aka not getting noob stomped the second they create their char?

    It'd probably be nice for the first month but then we'd be back where we started. Without meaningful changes the new players will quit and the old players will be established and stomping even harder.

    Why would you have to wipe for shroud to play?

    Agreed. However what if meaningful changes were to be implemented ?

    I think it would encourage new players to give it a go, because they would be joining a game at its new release basically.

    I don't think anyone would want to join a game where the whole server already has 2 years worth of progress under their belts.

    Not for Shroud to play, but so the game can be advertised to a 'new' crowd as a 'new' game.

    Fixing the fundamental economic and progression problems and THEN doing a full wipe is the only way we're ever going to see a healthy lasting population in RoA

    A wipe on it's own would probably only improve things in the short term

    if they reverted gains and got rid of this dogshit mob changes and took out spawn scaling and went to dfo economy, we'd have a nice game on our hands

    I 100% agree. I have never seen so much gold flying around. Never at any point in DF1 did I have over 2 million gold. I have had over 10 million gold in this game on multiple occasions. Hell, I have had so much gold that I was buying race change tokens for 150k in bulk and race changing every 6 hours.

    Theyve already clearly stated that there will NOT be a bank/character wipe.

    The problem with a holding wipe would just be a land rush to gain cities. Most people have runes marked to every vcp/city/rare golem/etc in the game so they would just port and drop a shard. Unless the new TC also involves a new procedure to capturing an empty city that I am unaware of

    Seriously?

    How many clans just sit in their cities all day because they have full banks and no need to farm.

    Gear grind is actually in a good place now, but it doesn't matter because most people got everything they could ever need already.

    Wouldn't matter I'd be right back where I am in like 2 weeks wipe is pointless. Also me and my friends probably wouldn't come back if there was a wipe because if they wipe once good chance they'll wipe again not a good thing to get started. Honestly right now is the best time for new people to start cause there's no competition at the spawns. You wipe everyone's stuff then your gonna have the vets right there in the spawns with the noobs all day we already saw how long that lasted at launch.

    A wipe would not solve that problem as I stated we'd be back to the same shit in no time. A gear/gold sink is desperately needed and a wipe is a bandaid on a machete wound.
