This is what a real tester response is. I agree! Everyone that is changing this to be about how people feel or using to say thats why this guild is ahead have gone so far off the path of the topic I haven't responded and just been reading. key things to read in this are "obtained through uses of unintended mechanics." "My main argument in favor of wiping the items is to collect more data about the real state of the economy as it was intended without exploits." If you think I enjoy starting over just cause then your sorely mistaken, It's about testing and getting the game to a better state and getting the right data thats needed to get it to that better state, unless you want unintended mechanics. This is part of "testing" and "developing" a game and again if 5.9 is close of course wait till then, however, as I have said a few times if 5.9 is a ways out then why wait? This is about the changing of mechanics to work properly and to get data so they can tweak it even better if needed etc. We need to stop making this about "they want a wipe cause they feel like they are behind" "they don't want a wipe cause they are ahead" this is stinking thinking and doesn't help the development at all. From the forums, discord, team speak etc conversations I have had with alot of people the majority think if 5.9 is a ways out still a wipe is good, if its not then stay the course. Thank you all for adding your input on this topic, been a good topic for discussion and yes I may have worded the original post wrong and it may have been misinterpreted by some and I am sorry that has happened.
