    Grind to 110 can be done in like a month pretty casually

    Disclaimer: There is not going to be a wipe.
    However, when people ask for a wipe, they generally mean "but only after making x or y change" (which x or y changes will vary depending who you ask), and among those changes is often an increased grind.

    We at least need a soft wipe like UW did with gear/enchants/gold and so on and the removal of gold from villages.

    Dfos economy was 18483826228 tumes better then what wr have now even with all the duping.

    Wipe it once the new designers learn the game and can actually start making changes to the game.

    Agreed their needs to be a basis on which they can wipe and not go through the same dog shit economy again. Make the right changes, fix economy, trial and error while learning from the Asia server........THEN wipe when the Asia server is fully running and out of Alpha when the population picks back up. Results: a happy NA server.

    Finish the things you've been working on for 6 years, then massive advertisement/wipe/relaunch/steam launch. I've only been saying this exact same thing for the past few years, so I won't hold my breath.

    Dupes haven't been mentioned yet in this thread. That has been the main argument for a wipe initially. People have done some weird shit with stat potions too and they got banned for it. The prob with dupes, items are already out there. Do you plan on regulating that today?

    You don't want to punish those who have been grinding for a couple of years who don't deserve to get hard-punished by a wipe? But there's definitely ways you can think about rewarding everyone such as maybe turning your old gear into something useful or soft wipe like UW.

    To say a wipe is not going to happen, that's 1 point. But are you guys totally giving up on making things right up to now?

    wipe but not yet. need enough content / casual friendliness to have a better retention rate

    and/or make the game seasonal like poe/albion but 6monthly-1yr~ depending on grind rate. so good for replayability / extra incentive to come and try new content

    If a wipe is not on the table, then what plans does BPG have to stimulate game activity and conflict? Sieges and wars? Endgame PVP?

    Without a population it would eventually return to where it is now. Quickly, imo. Freefarming and easy village captures

    But if the majority want it, as the votes show, do it.
