The Best Solution in this case would be to ignore it. Cheaters always will be there and nothing will stop them forever.

@Tonkatuff : A 2xxx-5xxx Legendary t21 would oneshot you...6 times over :P

Did you play back in the day? There was no such thing as a 2k+ T21. The very rare / few legendary T21s / Phammers back in the day were 1.4kish tops. The dots were killer on them. Every weapon you see now is legendary quality. A weapon off a sentinel (with a good luck roll) is TONS better than the legendarys off of DJM / Ancient Krayts. It shouldnt be that way period.

I almost have to wonder if a main motivation some people's desire for a wipe is to be able to GET the blue frogs so they don't have to grind to get a profession, thus being all "set up" with minimal effort to become the next "uberleets" on the server. Hmmmm...

Considering half the people voting for frogs have a fully grounded out jedi...

PvP was awesome when the frogs where in. That's why i want them back. It's dead atm.

I love how this thread proved my point form the previous "Wipe" thread.

Grinch99 04-26-2010 08:06 AM

Had to vote no on a wipe now. Wait for the OR then wipe it all out.

I feel an weapon / armor wipe is vastly needed along with fixed (lowered) loot tables. No more sentinel lvl loot period. I have a Power hammer sliced 2.1k. Are you serious?

As a Jedi, I was fully mind buffed and fooded and got 1 shotted by a T21. I have +25 saber block, +25 ranged Def , and I also have 0400 in the ranged defense tree. How in the WORLD should/could I get one shotted?

The items are out of hand and as this is a TEST CENTER, they need to be FIXED since they have been extensively tested and are NOT where they are supposed to be.


You could have +100 in SB tapes and your SB would still only be +90 total.

Ranged defense only decreases the chance for a successful hit. Even with 0400 Defender and your +25 Ranged Defense tape, you STILL have less than 100 total ranged defense. Which is worthless against the 200+ accuracy of a master carbine / MBH, or the 200+ accuracy of a master rifleman.

Wipe - Yes

Blue Frogs - No

But the frogs should only give you skills... let the crafters make everything else

why it wont stop me from trying to make the servers best crafted item, if your a crafter, you will craft end off.

Anyone disagree?

Me and my friend both have full temp Jedi's and we voted yes.... to a full wipe. The game , be it test center or otherwise is REALLY out of balance. It needs to be fixed. I can see them **** canning all gear , but not wiping the characters, which is probably the best thing.

Master Ranger

Its not a JOKE to have to regrind 6 alts. I personally only have Mahonra and Tigarra. But I know a LOT of people with at least 6 or more alts.

There are people with a dozen full template alts, I know quite a few myself included.

Granted, this isn't an accusation or anything, just noticing an interesting correlation between those who are wanting the wipe and those advocating blue frogs.

Hey! I have a full template Jedi AND a Master Bounty Hunter. Both of which are the hardest and longest grinds of all professions. So trust me I am not advocating BLUE FROGS as a means of a "fast and easy" way.

And I think BLUE FROGS should remain in game until the OR. But they shouldn't give items. Only skills.

I know, I've done it a fair few times, and I still don't mind doing it.

I was wrong yah!

Yah its a test server, the quality of the game for me I feel is the most important of it.

Jahnee Ventoor 04-26-2010 08:13 AM

Yes, I vote to wipe the bastard..........how bad could it be........gonna have to do it one day anyways.

gmore75 04-26-2010 08:15 AM

Vote NO
 
I voted no for a character wipe.. If you want to wipe items fine if not.. I'll be mad about losing my Master CM and Pistoleer (which I just got mastered).

I do plan on jumping to the OR because I don't like playing on Test Servers. But SWG is back in its full glory.. Thank you for your hard work.. If I have to start over to make things better fine.. I just won't like it, but I'll do it.

I hate exploiters / dupers... they ruin everything for us all...

If you do the wipe can you fix the following to:
Get the MOB to full size again.. Hate killing Torturs smaller then my knee..
Fix the Harvestors also.. I am missing 7 atm..

/agree
I vote yes. Since the beginning we knew that this server would be wiped. If that can fix any problems, do it please !
