Fresh Start – Wipe information for War and Peace servers.

Recommended Posts

This may be dumb question but, after release will there ever be another full wipe? Also will there ever be port resets?

If no or only partial wipe is being promised to you: don't trust them. Never again. PvP had their disappointment in february and we on PvE have ours now. No room left for illusions, as there is no other server community left unharmed.

we are not testers

WHAT THE DEVELOPERS HAVE TO SAY:

Why Early Access?

“Sea Trials is a long age of sail tradition. Captains of that time had a chance to test their vessel and provide feedback to the Admiralty on what needs to be changed to make the ship perform better. Extensive sea trials are required by the Admiralty to fully test if the ships in the game are seaworthy and ready for fighting.”

Who cares?  You can either play the game and have as much fun as possible or stare down from your high tower of righteousness and watch as other people do.  

If you get this indignant over some foreign game developers changing their minds in a game that hasn’t even been released yet, then perhaps this leisure-time activity is not for you?

i really question how some people must react to actual setbacks in their REAL life if they get this pissy regarding pixels and fake characters.

Merril,

Because of time invested versus past assurances by developers.  A large number of people stuck around believing the developers statements they would retain their hard earned XP, rank, ship slot XP and learned books.  Then some were taken away several months ago, and the rest were taken last week.  I personally was fine starting over rank and XP, losing ship slot XP and book knowledge stung a bit more, given that clanmates and I have gone to great lengths to obtain books, spending countless hours doing so only to have it wiped away.  In the end we start over, that's the way it is, people group up and work together.

Real life?  ok, here is an analogy for you.  You work a full time job for several years with the assurances you keep your benefits, pension and nice office that you have earned.  Then you and everyone else is back in tiny cubicles (basic cutters)... "Ok, time to regrind back into my old office"  Then it is announced benefits (ship slot XP) are cancelled and your pension amount (learned book knowledge) is reset and you start over at -0-  At this point IRL bad press, protests, and ultimately, legal action takes place ie: class action lawsuits.  This isn't real life, but for many that are retired or disabled this IS a big part of their life.

The last total wipe happened before book knowledge grind, ship slot grind, 1 dura ships etc, This wipe hurts a lot more for a large amount of players.  THESE ARE THE REASONS PEOPLE ARE ANGRY, STOP ATTACKING THEM FOR THIS, THEY ARE LEGITIMATE COMPLAINTS.  This sort of behaviour would have serious repercussions IRL, similar in spirit to the repercussions the developers are experiencing.

I love this game, and want it to flourish, but the repeated decisions based on "hardcore badasses" and "trusted friends" input have taken this game far from the unfinished diamond in the rough it once was, to an unfinished "pander to the few at the expense of the many" not ready for prime time mess.

So even books gonna be wiped too after all, although you clearly stated they wouldn't be when you rolled back on the xp promise? Wow. I know I should have seen that one coming, I guess...

Guess I had a lot of fun after all! Good luck with your game my dude, hope it becomes a success after all. Also big kudos to the cucks who keep sucking it up.

So ..... now I feel like I need to quit my job just to get to a decent level to play NA again or I might just buy three kingdoms and play that...

 

point is while the new UI is great, PB is unbalance but good implementation, NA consists of me killing AI ( something I now need to do more after release) carrying some barrels from point A to B while watching YouTube and Mayb chase a ship that didn’t want to get sunk..

 

if this is release I don’t see any great system that has been introduced to make people go Wow!! The only thing NA has is that the last decent age of sailing game without the kraken is sea dogs - and that looks like I’m playing on a sega drive now!

 

point is wipe books, wipe slots wipe Xp the game does not have mechanics which would keep the casual gamer interested and we will see that upon release with the population numbers.

I would wager $200 of DLC content that if Admin reverses his decision to wipe xp/knowledge on the War server and go back to not wiping the.......... 

IMO the problem in itself isnt the wipe, but its far beyond it. As i see it people dont want to yet again GRIND stuff to gain max rank and where they were, so the problem is that the grind and the levelig in itself isnt rewarding, its just rinse and repeat, nothing new.

Maybe  my post will be deleted, and after that, I´ll be banned 🙂

14 pages full of post from people crying and complaining: I´m sure the dev-team will consider all us complaints like always: sending them to /dev/null

I think after wipe, a increasing peak near 800 players, decreasing to september to and average per day of 350, and after that a new message for our dear and charismatic admin telling us "servers will be close". So, I also have bought many DLCs which will be useless after wipe; I´m not lawer, but I can remeber a video in youtube talking about this commercial practices before final release against steam rules...anyway, forget it, I´m not a lawer.Oh my god... can you see most of us are naval action junkies?? Some days saying the game and mechanics are a shit, other days remembering ancestral families from devteam, later promising to leave and not coming back , but we came back here again.

Are gamelabs dev team focused in other games? Sure, and they have no money & no time to spent here.

I´m not going to engange again a game from gamelabs before final release, cause owners of this bussiness got honour in their words same like my ex girlfriends 🙂

So thanks for the experiment, after wipe I´m gona check if I want to spend 400 hours to reach enough XP to sail a Surprise :D

    • Only clan lists will remain intact

No stealing back clan tags then. That's good because I know specifically of someone who was looking forward to thieving thier tag back with no sympathy for the 100s of players he would have upset. It's for the best. But damn I feel bad for that guy that I know of personally and specifically who I know.

After months of knowing a wipe was coming, are people honestly still complaining about how their lives have been completely ruined and how empty their life is losing XP? Just curious. I mean, do you plan on playing this game forever? If you ever planned on quitting the game sometime in the future, then the quote "all this time I've played has been wasted time" is the exact same situation as the devs wiping everything. Devs wipe the game = lose xp and all that time was a waste; you quit playing the game now or in 2040 = you lose xp (in a sense because you're not using it anyway by not playing) and all that time was wasted.

If you don't like the game, just stop playing and go find another game that's not EA and will never change. If you like the game, then just play. Frankly, all of us who plan to keep playing are rather tired of hearing the same complaint for the last 2 months. Deal with it, or don't and move on. You should not be trying to influence those who plan to continue playing to instead be in a rage like you are. We are comfortable with our lives and are comfortable with no game ever influencing our lives so much that we would consider it a wasted life. I personally loved the grind of ranking up and welcome it again.

This is 100% my feeling.  

 

If you dont don’t enjoy the game, just don’t play it.  

Why all the pearl-clutching and drama?!

You can try all you'd like to insult me, but it's futile. I have no alts, and have never bought a DLC. Thank you tho, because I will enjoy....all over again, because it was fun the first time around and will be so again.

I am eager to see the steam review graphs this month. Will Gamelabs advertise as promised years ago the now released game with its precious 58% rating? Will the rating drop down as expected by me below 50 or will it even raise? How many people will actually go back and play it, if so, for how long? 2 days, 2 weeks or even 2 months? When will the server be shut down, end of this year? Next year or even 2 years? I guess only the future can tell.

The problem is that there are many people who do not like the game now, for multiple reasons. If you say that to people, you run a risk: stay alone in the game, and then, it will not like you either. The games are made for fun, and in this, as it is now is not fun. Things have been added, which are very expensive to obtain, we are encouraged to do PvP and then rare permits are given to the most used ships to make PvP. Everyone walks like crazy looking for permits, doubloons, CM etc for their respective bonus ports, there is very little PvP and too much "work" that is not precisely naval action. That's why a lot of people do not like how the game is.

I would advise people to not buy any downloads for a couple months because this game might just implode and servers get shut down, making every dlc purchase useless. Is it even legal to sell content for a game that has a high chance of shutting down?

no the servers have to run for a certain amount of time, if they are closed before, they will have to annoy themselves with claims of damages from some lawyers.
