Hey friends!

All characters and all progress are being reset tonight! This is the WIPE you have been waiting for for several weeks now, that will bring us a revamped crafting and equipment progression! It is also one of the last wipes before the release of the game, maybe even the very last!
So get excited everyone! It is time to start new and fresh characters, set up groups for leveling, create guilds that will last more than two weekends and explore all the new things that have been added to the game since our last wipe in May!

If it is the first time you are joining the game, or the first time since a long time, be sure to:



To celebrate the new cycle, we will have a very special show on Twitch right after the Weekly Community Show on my channel.

SQUAD STREAM with MorrolanTV, Panth, myself & Drindin + 2 guests at noon CDT /7pm CEST
So if you can’t get in the game right when the weekend starts, you can at least enjoy a 3 screens Stream! More information about this special event soon!!


So, now the important question: what will you be playing as your main character during this cycle?

When will you know if it's the last wipe or if there'll be one more? I feel like I'm missing information. I've played in the alpha tests over the last year or so and knew I'd be coming back to play when character wipes were all done. It's tough to choose when to start playing if I don't know if this was the last wipe or not :)
Hope that makes sense, I'm ready to start building a character and put real effort into the backstory, relationships, advancement, etc. But I don't want to start that if we don't know if it'll last...

Probably isn't the last bud. Wipes come with testing, just part of it. Might want to wait till release then because I'm sure there will be more wipes from now till release Which hopefully is a ways out yet because I'd hate to see them rush it. Game is good and has a strong foundation, but definitely not ready for a release this year. Content is king and atm they need a lot more to have a sustainable release.

This is not something we can promise unfortunately. Wipes are only done when it's needed and when we requiere the players feedback. In this case, crafting and item progression is changed, we need the players feedback regarding the leveling experience and how their aquire items.
Alpha and Beta testing are ...test. So we can iterate, polish and change the game in the needed direction. We need our testers to continue testing each step of the way. We need their feedback. We need to know their feelings. It's not just bugs testing. You understand. Bug testing is relatively easy. But the important part is how does it feel
We try to have as least wipes as possible because we understand the annoyance of it and it cost us that players are less likely to test and give their feedback. Wipes are not in our best interest either. But sometimes they are needed.

So we are extremly grateful for all the testers that continue to test our game, and give their first impressions, their feedback and their thoughs! Thank you so very much guys. It is so precious! Without you, this game would not have been progressing so far!

So to answer you more personaly @Ranarius, it seems to me that you better to wait for launch.
