-   -   [Re-Revised] TC:NOVA Wipe Proposal (http://archive.swgemu.com/forums//showthread.php?t=54391)

odwill, you had me at increased development time

IronEd 04-26-2010 12:13 AM

I voted no, but I'm for an inventory/credit wipe. It would bring balance to the economy without losing hard earned xp.

Labyrinth 04-26-2010 12:13 AM

Unless it's strictly necessary to wipe everything to "possibly add new features"...

^This.

The gist of my feedback: If a wipe happens at all, at least make the resulting TC improved enough that the wipe is justified. There would be nothing more demotivating to me than a wipe that's essentially, "We're releasing the iPad! It's like an iPhone but BIGGER!"

mrsheepy 04-26-2010 12:14 AM

If you're gonna wipe just put the Blue Frogs back in, if not you're just gonna lose an even bigger part of the community.

What this upstanding gentleman said.

Barber 04-26-2010 12:16 AM

So i vote no,unless you can implement charc limits to prevent those exploits aswell

Number one you need to keep in mind these guys are doing this for us free of charge. Number two if all you are worried about is losing some credits then maybe you should stop and think about who you are calling a whiner.

giffo 04-26-2010 12:16 AM

I would like a partial wipe - money and inventory but not characters would be nice compared to the proposal of a full wipe, thats where the time and effort has been spent - grinding our professions on many different characters

not possible to locate the people with the billions of credits? or overpowered weapons and remove them, or is it too rampant and numerous?

I voted but having problems logging in still

elpenguino1 04-26-2010 12:16 AM

Kind of ironic if you vote yes, but are in a rush to log back in...

-ace- 04-26-2010 12:18 AM

All i read from that entire post was the hackers won, forcing everyone else to start fresh (and then again for OR). And in the end they will just figure out how to do it again, and this will be posted...again.

Yes to complete inv/item wipe. No to char wipe.

Dame 04-26-2010 12:18 AM

blue frogs are the devil.

darran 04-26-2010 12:19 AM

I voted yes just to see some of the new stuff that you all have been working on. I would ask, since this is a Test Server, that you re-add the NPCs that give you full training. That would spice things up a bit more and be a nice nod to those who have been putting a lot of time into their characters :)

-DominioN- 04-26-2010 12:19 AM

Well I believe that if the devs say it is best for the project, then that's what should be done. Wipe away.

Chelle Psyops 04-26-2010 12:19 AM

maaaan .. ive done so much grinding .. and time.. but i know that if i want my backpack and housing again .. im all for it .. OBAAAAMAAA.

Revik Verion 04-26-2010 12:20 AM

Yea its a test center, let the 12 year olds QQ all they want

jjDraGiN 04-26-2010 12:20 AM

Voted, unlock me please

Wipe items,creds not toons

Baigs 04-26-2010 12:21 AM

Wipe it.. learn and make things better.. then get us to LIVE quicker

TheExile 04-26-2010 12:21 AM

Wipe please

mcwilly10 04-26-2010 12:21 AM

he brings a point even if as the poll reults are now 40% no 60% yes is it really worth possibly losing 30% of your testers ? maybe i mean its a free game but you know your not gonna lose anywhere near that many of the yes grp if you dont wipe.However, i agree that a credit wipe inventory wipe could be done and would be a must if there was a credit wipe cause otherwise i could then i a few months sale the holos and cas in my inventory and again we will have ppl crying about how the game life much like real life just isnt fair and balanced.

Yes to complete inv/item wipe. No to char wipe.

I feel the same way..

Drakkin 04-26-2010 12:22 AM

I agree with a wipe to better the game for the big release. Yes regrinding all the toons is a downer but we all knew these toons werent permanent. The economy has gotten to carried away in here and way to many uber weapons dropping. If you could add factories at least to help stabilize the economy wouldnt be a bad thing either. And it would be a smile knowing the credit sellers got it stuck to them when the holder toons they had invested rl money into go poof

Ninja_Cadillac 04-26-2010 12:22 AM

Despite how much I really don't feel like re-grinding everything I have to this point, if this speeds up the process to the OR and helps us to reach our goal of completing the Emu once and for all, I support it 100 percent. This will also cause a drop in the RP community more than likely but I have to look at the bigger picture here.

AceeIjafoe 04-26-2010 12:22 AM

Voted yes to wipe.

Agitated 04-26-2010 12:23 AM

Yoouuuu Keeennn dewwww iitttt devs

Wolvendrake 04-26-2010 12:23 AM

nay. no wipe. not actually needed, just some seem to like the idea. It will just cause discontent, and frustration for the hours spent by those who have so far worked very hard to get where they are. yes some negatives happened... yes some issues needed to be resolved. they have been and new exploits will pop up and will be found again. they have JUST as much chance to do it NOW as if you did a wipe. so whats the difference? those without so much invested have not much to lose, and will prolly like the idea of a wipe. Those with much invested.... have everything to lose. literally.

Chaotik 04-26-2010 12:25 AM

How about we just wipe the hackers... Problem solved..

To everyone voting yes because they can't read. If you can't fix the exploiting now, why would a wipe give you the knowledge to do so? A maybe isn't good enough for me to lose all my toons.

roocey 04-26-2010 12:26 AM

I voted no already for reasons already stated, but I want to say something.

Voting yes to a wipe to items and credits but not characters is interesting and all, but if they really do implement OR items and other gadgets for us to test, its insanely unlikely.

In a game testing environment, the developers need to see players at various stages and how the code interacts. This includes the beginning and the end.

I have to assume it would be much simpler to simply wipe everything and let everyone grind back up, to check for quirks in the system along the way. And if they need testing with full templates and various items, they can always put back in Traders/Frogs.

Please just keep in mind that, ultimately, your characters are worth nothing at this stage of the game. They are going to get deleted sooner or later, whether it is tomorrow or in six months.

kamuirsx 04-26-2010 12:26 AM

Honestly, hacks and exploits mean nothing...everything will continue to be inflated even if there was a wipe...

I vote no because even with all the stuff going on, it's still fun..besides within a month after the wipe, it will pretty much be back to this except less jedi on the server....not exactly what I'd call a good enough reason.

SirJMon 04-26-2010 12:26 AM

never mind

Coppertop1 04-26-2010 12:27 AM

Wipe Wipe Wipe
I for one am glad to see a wipe so the economy returns to normal and the duping and hacking stops. If someone figures out how to do it again down the road then so be it and it can be dealt with again. I am not going to whine about losing characters and money because I know this is a test server and subject to wipe (without notice at the discretion of the Devs) These people are doing this because they loved the original game enough to spend a lot if not most of their free time to do it, for themselves and for the community. I am sure they hate to wipe as much as you seem to not want it but if it's for the betterment of the game why complain about it.

Adio Spiegel 04-26-2010 12:27 AM

Im all for a wipe, but only when the OR is ready. If exploits and money dupers have gotten out of hand then the best thing todo would be wiping all items and money from people bank accounts leaving there current templates in tact. No need for people to grind out there templates and have to re do that all over again because a couple of ass clowns are trying to ruin the fun for the rest.

dbmather 04-26-2010 12:27 AM

Whatever the devs decide, as long as it does not have anything to do with the NGE, is OK in my book. However, just to include my two cents, since everyone else did, I would like to agree with the idea of an inventory/bank/credit wipe. This would, essentially reset the economy, which is the main problem of SWGEMU at the moment, in my opinion.

wipe
 
I have been on the emu a little over a month and a half and just getting my feet wet. It really is ashamed that people will use cheats hacks ect to get the upper hand. In the end the only people they are cheating are themselves.
Saying that , this is a test server and wipes do happen. But to wipe to get rid of hacks and bugs that is not acceptable. wipeing bank and backpack data would be more of an option. Futhermore, I still see major exploits in the game that have not been fixed. such as dupeing and ent doc grind. Most of you medics know what Im talking about.

sithrosex 04-26-2010 12:28 AM

Ouch..meh its a game and a test server,I hate the thought of a wipe,but if it helps speed OR and implements housing and feign death,player cities etc for test write as many 100111001010 as needed to fix it.cut out the cancer with a calculated precision.if it helps my vote is yes

Possibly losing a bunch of impatient children and/or childish adults? Sounds good.

Trust me, I think "losing 30% of your testers" is not as bad as one might think. If they are so impatient, they likely weren't testing or providing any useful information. Further still, there is little reason to assume they'd be any more useful during the OR testing phases.
