I know people will disagree with me again like in all the previous data wipe posts I made, but this time there’s no beating around the bush, the developers can’t only wipe currency, they have to wipe all items.
Reasons For Wipe
The reasons should be obvious by now, they have been stated by players multiple times.
1. I am not allowed to go into detail on one of the reasons because the topic will be instantly closed and unlisted so I will only say it involves mob drops being screwed with, mobs being forced spawned and damage output being screwed with. All you have to know about this is that it allows an entire server of players to get an Icicle, Cursed Defense Scrolls and possibly a crown.
2. Internal Leak
This little accident should be very well known to basically everyone by now. To simplify, berezaa brought a group of random players into the internal server to hype up the new update, this went terribly wrong as the data block glitched out and players were able to smuggle out anything they want including unreleased items. I don’t have to explain why this will destroy the economy.
Effects Of A Total Wipe
The effects would be mostly positive in my opinion, the economy of Vesteria will be set straight again without any items being added in via unintended methods. There’s the argument that Vesteria’s playerbase will die out but this is false, the devoted players will never leave and the not so devoted ones will return after an interesting update is released as proven by the Booga Booga wipe last year, since the Mojo system was released at the same time it got wiped, a lot of players ended up staying. A ton of innocent Vesterians will lose their data but this is a needed sacrifice. You guys shouldn’t be whining about wipes as the richest players which are me and DroLrem are with data wipe, the player who has probably invested the MOST amount of time in Vesteria, Metapoly, also isn’t against a wipe.
To wrap this post up, the end is nigh, if a wipe doesn’t happen, Vesteria will definitely suffer heavily and basically end up like the Swordburst series. This problem can’t be solved with a simple rollback either as the data storage of Vesteria can’t do a full month rollback to solve the problems that the first reason brings.
This method will also be ineffective as it is impossible to tell if someone have a suspicious amount of gold. Only the developers can do that and they can’t run a check on everyone, so unless the developers let everyone see into each other’s inventory, I don’t think this method will be viable. The only way to save Vesteria is by patching all the known “unintended features”, add “Game Masters” to the game as soon as possible and wiping everything. Since berezaa is bold enough to suggest permadeath, wiping all items to save the game shouldn’t be hard.
Throwing in a poll here by request of Swegu, don’t sue me @Usa123578910usa lul
- Don’t wipe
- Idk, I am too lazy to read this post.
