I don't want to talk about all the annoyances of the last crashes and rollbacks on PvE-/Peace-Server. I want to suggesst a proper option to compensate players of this server for all the "inconveniences", as Dev's always called it. Here's my suggestion: Don't wipe PvE on game release. Let players keep everything they've achieved until this date: Knowledge, ships, money, outposts and all the stuff in their warehouses and chests. Everything. And: Add an option for Hardcore-PvE players, to start the game at release from the ground, if they like to (with no need, to delete their account). Some may now complain, there's way too much advantage for pre-release players to new players. But the thing is: Without a wipe, new players jump into a busy world full of diversity of ships and experienced, motivated (pre-release-) players, much of them willing to give help and assistance to the new and unexperienced captains. This is a Win-Win-Situation to everyone on the Peace-Server. Have a nice day and Happy Sailing!
Right now the plan is to wipe for release. Testers (all of us playing pre-wipe) will keep knowledge and get a free Pandora DLC. My plan is to do the tutorial right away and be playing at a M&C level on day one. I'm sure a few of us have similar ideas. If this is the way of it, I am completely content, however.....There is a great deal of discontent with this process and I completely understand that. A lot of you have been playing for 3 plus years and feel that you deserve more. I myself have only been on for a year and a bit, but in that time, I have crafted a couple of ships that I am very attached to. I will feel the pain when they are wiped. What if Devs were to allow us to keep 2 or 3 ships that we particularly love? No slots open, no mods, and of course, we might not have the crew to man them right away. I know that the whole "level playing field" has been discussed, but lets be honest; there is no way a new player in on the same playing field as Reverse (for instance)...even if he is in a row boat.
