I have a simple suggestion for a smooth transition into the launch of Crowfall. Having put so many hours into the game leading up to the launch and spending tons of resources on leveling crafter belts and discs, I'm ready to jump right into the game when it officially launches. Solution? Just don't wipe the servers. Here's a few good reasons not to have a wipe.
1. There really isn't a significant advantage for players who've put all this time and effort into testing the game. We deserve a little bit of a boost for all the work we've done for ACE.
2. The servers will likely be crowded with all the new players hopping into the game. We could reduce some congestion by simply not forcing the old players to do the crafter grind again. The
3. People are already prepared for a long grind that isn't very fun. How about we allow those people to jump into the fun part of the game immediately instead of making them work on a second job? Work/life balance is hard enough with a fulltime job without having Crowfall become a second one.
4. People did quit the game over the difficulty of the grind. We shouldn't put them through that again. No one wants them to quit the game forever after a terrible grind. Player retention is something we can all get behind.
So before you go telling your guildmates to get back to hitting rocks. Give this post a like and share with ACE why -you- don't want a wipe on release. Lets bring the community together on this one and send a clear message to ACE.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post and have a good one. Good luck pleasing the gods! May your enemies fall before you!
