A way to fix the credits would be just to wipe all those inventory things.
did you not read the first post?

The reason they keep this poll is not because a wipe is necessary, but because people are asking for it ... huge difference.

My feelings are not based on any inside knowledge though
But the concept of the new unlock system can certainly be tested now. I am not positive but based on prior posts ( I think by Kyle) that the devs are not happy with the current system and are looking for a concept that gets them whatever balance they deem the sweet spot. Conceptually that can be tested now and is not tied to the OR. I voted for wipe because I am for anything that gets us to live faster. If in fact this all because of people whining about gameplay on a test server I am not in favor of wipe. I do however have faith in the developers of EMU that that is not the case and that this is a move that can be made now instead of later for conceptual testing purposes.

wipe

Every weapon has a serial number so do item credits do not but for vet players makeing credits is very easy. This wipe is being preposed because of exploited weapons and items ie a pawn issue not a game issue. Again I see no reason for it. Why not ban those items instead of makeing everyone else start over. dont wipe them but if you get caught useing them a ban the player.

Me too considering we've had over 1000 on the server at peak time and we don't have that many votes yet...

On a not so flamey note, the credit duping has made the economy so out of whack its really not all that fun to log onto the server anymore. For that reason alone I voted yes, since it was also stated they dupes would be fixed. This will allow the devs to make sure their fixes work and as previously stated that does move us towards a finished product. I don't mind regrinding, one of the beauties of SWG was that grinding a template was never really all that difficult. If you stopped enjoying your template, change it no big deal, week tops you have a brand spanking new setup to toy with. So I don't think anyone can serious gripe about regrinding in this game. I'd love to see the uber weapons done away with. I don't however see a need to make a new path to jedi, that's a waste of dev resources. I would however like to see the bugs in mell mission fixed to cut down on the waiting line we've ended up with lately as I hear.

If I may ask, when is this wipe happening? I don't feel like leveling my character anymore if I know its all for nothing. :/ Would rather start again soon!

re:TC wipe

Someone elses hacks have had no noticable effect on my gaming experience so i vote NO. However, it IS a TC so do whatever advances the formation of a fully operational deathstar, er,server. A full wipe WILL cause people to quit, and a healthy economy needs more players, especially crafters, not less.

Come now. You can't actually expect the players to do something as extreme as reading. Or at the very least understanding what's going on and voting appropriately. Educated voters... hah! There are Jedi to be purged!

this is gonna take a long time to find all of the duped weapons and delete them and i do not think it would be possible. but if you read the first post you would know that they will only do a full wipe!

Actually, it's a table in the database ... 1 delete statement would do it.
However, it will not fix credits and items bought by duped money.

Only a full inventory-credit wipe can fix this.


Heh .... the trade forums almost came to a full stop thanks to this poll

This has nothing with people wanting to contribute, or with progress of the project. This is a bout revenge.

All those supporting this wipe are pissed off and all they see or hear form people opposing the wipe:

1. I'm an exploiter and i want to keep my UBER exploited items.
2. I'm a credit/holo/items duper and i want to keep my stuff an maybe sell them for RL money if i get the chance.
3. I bought credits/jedi/account for RL money and i dont want to give up on what i payed for.
4. I am a 12 year old kid who just unlocked Jedi and i want to wave my glow bat
5. I'm lazy and i cant be bothered to AFK grind in Jabba cave again i just want to sit on top of my CW and farm her 24/7


There is no dialog here, two sides will never find a common ground.

Lets face it, NOVA is screwed up, someone needs to be blamed. STAFF cant or for some reason wont punish people that screwed it up and keep screwing it up, so players see this as the only way get rid of those exploited credits and items, and punish those stupid enough to pay RL money for items or credits or an account on a TC that will be wiped anyway. That's whats going on. Lets not hide behind testing, progress, contributing, dedication or anything else remotely connected to this project.
