[2012-07-28 05:14:46] <PaleGrim_Newb> do we know if there will be a wipe after "commercial open beta?"
[2012-07-28 05:14:51] <staxjax> yeah newb
[2012-07-28 05:14:56] <staxjax> well no newb
[2012-07-28 05:14:57] <PaleGrim_Newb> you sure?
[2012-07-28 05:14:59] <PaleGrim_Newb> ok
[2012-07-28 05:15:00] <staxjax> read your question wrong
[2012-07-28 05:15:06] <PaleGrim_Newb> i assume not if its "commercial"
[2012-07-28 05:15:08] <staxjax> there will be one hopefully next week, if pdox is ready
[2012-07-28 05:15:14] <staxjax> thats what my assumption is
[2012-07-28 05:15:24] <PaleGrim_Newb> commercial means people will be able to buy stuff and i dont think they would like their bought stuff wiped
[2012-07-28 05:15:42] <PaleGrim_Newb> a lot of f2p games these days dont wipe after OB
[2012-07-28 05:15:59] <PaleGrim_Newb> i hope they wipe soon, i am taking a break from playing until they do
[2012-07-28 05:16:09] <PaleGrim_Newb> dont wanna get burnt out
[2012-07-28 05:16:26] <staxjax> wat are you gonna do after wipe
[2012-07-28 05:16:32] <Kal> I get the impression the wipe is soon
[2012-07-28 05:16:35] <loftar> Well, I can tell you a little bit about that before I head for bed.
[2012-07-28 05:16:52] <staxjax> yay
[2012-07-28 05:16:54] <loftar> We do plan a wipe as soon as Paradox is ready in order to start the closed commercial beta.
[2012-07-28 05:16:59] <loftar> Hopefully monday.
[2012-07-28 05:17:16] <loftar> After that, I plan to fix support for multiple servers.
[2012-07-28 05:17:36] <loftar> The intention, then, is to transition into open beta not by wiping, but by merely adding more servers, each with their own fresh map, of course.
[2012-07-28 05:18:09] <loftar> And the hope after that is simply that we'll never actually have to wipe, but if anything to simply retire old worlds when people have moved on from them onto new worlds that are launched with new servers.
[2012-07-28 05:18:09] <staxjax> great
[2012-07-28 05:18:17] <loftar> The intention being that people can travel between servers.
[2012-07-28 05:18:55] <loftar> That's not to say that we can avoid wipes forever, of course, but we'll avoid them as long as possible, at least.
[2012-07-28 05:19:04] <staxjax> now, can you pls bug somebody about changing the '' website
[2012-07-28 05:19:10] <PaleGrim_Newb> will server transfercost money
[2012-07-28 05:19:13] <staxjax> all those haters on the forums are so annoying
[2012-07-28 05:19:18] <loftar> Bug them in what way, staxjax?
[2012-07-28 05:19:26] <staxjax> it says open beta end of july
[2012-07-28 05:19:30] <loftar> Or rather, changing it in what way? :)
[2012-07-28 05:19:32] <loftar> Oh, I see. :)
[2012-07-28 05:19:38] <loftar> Not real money, PaleGrim_Newb.
[2012-07-28 05:19:40] <PaleGrim_Newb> if going between servers is free i want a stall on each one :D
[2012-07-28 05:19:42] <staxjax> and some people are getting mad :/
[2012-07-28 05:19:45] <PaleGrim_Newb> ah cool
[2012-07-28 05:19:47] <loftar> Probably ingame resources of one kind or another, though.
[2012-07-28 05:19:56] <staxjax> or have to build a ship !
[2012-07-28 05:19:57] <PaleGrim_Newb> my plans for controllnig the economy might work then!
[2012-07-28 05:19:59] |<-- Salem has left (Quit: Salem)
[2012-07-28 05:20:05] <loftar> There may be several travel options possible for using different resources for travel.
[2012-07-28 05:20:15] <PaleGrim_Newb> like building a ship?
[2012-07-28 05:20:20] <loftar> Perhaps. :)
[2012-07-28 05:20:22] <staxjax> lol
[2012-07-28 05:20:23] <PaleGrim_Newb> :D
[2012-07-28 05:20:26] <PaleGrim_Newb> awesome
[2012-07-28 05:20:53] <loftar> The initial way will probably be "coaches" available for silver in Boston, though.
[2012-07-28 05:21:02] <PaleGrim_Newb> so im going to start a shipping company then
[2012-07-28 05:21:05] <loftar> Or whatever the various servers' center town will be called.
[2012-07-28 05:21:27] <PaleGrim_Newb> buy cheap sell high between servers!
[2012-07-28 05:21:39] <staxjax> depends on what kind of inflation happens on the different servers
[2012-07-28 05:21:57] <PaleGrim_Newb> hopefully there is a lot of disparity
[2012-07-28 05:22:57] <PaleGrim_Newb> we cant have a upper class without a lower class to prop us up
[2012-07-28 05:23:31] <staxjax> I'm a middleclass kinda guy
[2012-07-28 05:23:42] <PaleGrim_Newb> are you good at paperwork
[2012-07-28 05:23:44] <loftar> And with that, I'm off to bed. :)
[2012-07-28 05:23:44] <PaleGrim_Newb> :D
[2012-07-28 05:23:59] <staxjax> Thank you loftar.
