I thought commander XP (rank) was not going to get reset? Or will it get returned upon release?

Fascinating. All for testing the new player experience... but I bet there will be a lot of people bent out of shape about walking that xp/rank promise back. ;)

The above comments are a bit vague, but in essence they cannot WIPE your XP that you've accrued per steam EULA.  What they can do is dilute that and create more ranks and make it so you are no longer max rank...etc etc.  I imagine they'll do something like   Rear Admiral, Admiral of the Blue, Admiral of White.......Sea Lord.   

Either way, RIP NA from now until release.

First wipe will happen next week. It will be an economy reset and will be related to resources, money and other not seaworthy assets.

There is no information on the final release wipe yet. But when this decision will be made based on what is going to make the game better on release. What is certain is that books and skill books will remain safe + pandora will be provided as free DLC for all early access testers.

no. All steam developers can wipe everything with no consequences when in Early access.

you've said otherwise before in previous posts, just repeating what I read.  

I'll echo the sentiments of the posters in saying ship knowledge XP needs to not be touched.

Well.. except for the consequences of pissing off your testers and most vocal supporters... ;)

One of them will include full XP reset on the introduction of the new ranks (up to sea lord)

🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

I mean I won't be mad if you introduce PvP ranks, but if all of that will change will be more ranks and all accessed via PvE pew pew, then I will be really disappointed.

Before you also introduce any sort of exp wipes, can we get some of the data on craft/rank exp leaderboard for top 100 NA players? Just out of pure curiosity, so we can actually see who's more of talking loud forum warriors and who are actually playing and testing the game. Can you also differ PvE and PvP experience? That would be really interesting to see.

we never said so. Early access rules allow developers to start selling the game about dinosaurs but then change the course and end up with robots on the release. Early access developers are even allowed to never release the game. Of course we are not those developers and have 2 launches from early access (one of them selling 500k copies) and will release NA this spring. Thus wipes will have to start happening - next week.

The Thing is if you do you will lose many Players. And I don't think there will be as many remaining with new guys that will fill like 500.

This spring? That means very few months. It is almost impossible to release the game in good shape in so limited time.

Game doesn't need many players to test.

Vocal supporters will understand that the game will have to shine on release when new players come and you only have one chance to make a first impression. 

But in your case your phrase is only 50% true (and you know it)

Uh, immediate issue arises. How many players will actually want to play between those annoying as hello kitty multiple wipes, specially if they are resetting exp? I mean the test bed has had a max number of players of what? 20?
It was mentioned ship exp would not be touched, are you maintaining that or not?

test - sure, I have no problems with testing but I don't believe we will get it back on the game release AFTER TESTING IS DONE/FINISHED.
