will there be a character wipe after beta?

or will you get to keep your character?

 

i don't know why people would want to play and level up their skills only to have to start all over and replay the whole game upto that point

    I can't speak for DF specifically, but every beta I've ever been in, the characters get wiped.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    TBH if this game even takes off after a start like this and the tons of people that paid for a 2-3 year beta called Darkfall. Im not sure this game will ever make a solid date or launch

    Of course there will be a wipe. Beta is for testing and giving feedback, not playing.

    Also, darkfall is a unique mmorpg. Its not your typical themepark mmo where you need to go through a predefined path in order to reach max level

    Yes.

    It's good to be bad.

    I've been in many betas and almost all of them wipe before launch. In the case of Darkfall, I think it would be suicide if AV decided not to do a wipe. Imagine how many people would pass on the game if there were a ton characters that were way ahead in terms of progression and not to mention something pretty important; knowledge of the game.

    A wipe is inevitable.

    Buying the game gives you game time AFTER the beta ends in addition to beta access.

    While I believe a wipe is inevtiable (seeing as how he mentioned a headstart seperately from the beta), that logic doesn't really work. Why would anybody play an MMO after it's been out for a month+?

    You aren't paying for a beta. You are pre-ordering the game which happens to also give you beta access. Sub time will not tick down until after the game officially launches.

    hmmmmmm

     

    maybe it would be worth it then

    Yes, not based on speculation but based on the fact that this isn't the release version of Darkfall.

    Do Darkfall 1 owners need to pay to get the game?

    That is, is their 15 dollars just getting them into the beta, or does it count as them buying the game again?

    Everyone is rebuying the game. Owners of DFO get it for 15, new people get it for 30 at pre-order. After pre-order the price may go up to $50 for new players. No mention has been made of DFO account holders who do not pre-order.

    huh.  What happened to all that talk of Darkfall 1 subscribers getting the new version for free?

    Was that an urban legend?

    Ah, free so long as you pay, gotcha.

    I thought DF1 users would get the game for no cost. The game would come with a standard 30 days included, as they usually do in MMO land, followed by  normal subscriptions.

    Do new players get a free 30 days with their 30 dollar purchase?

    Yes. Also not that I am not sure the game will be going to 50 dollars, I think it will be 39.99 because it says 25% off which would be 10 dollars. If it were 50 the game would be $37.5 which is a 25% discount from 50 dollars.

    i bought it and it says my next recuring payment is march 2nd ...if it launch in january it will mean i paid 15$ for the 30 days and 0$ for dfuw. It is free except you need to be able to login with an active subs. pretty standard stuff ... New player pay 15$ for the game and 15$ for the first month.
  • Burning25Burning25 Estero, FLPosts: 24Member

    Yes there will be a wipe, this game has land conquest, no wipe would be stupid. As much as Aventurine has their issues, they wouldn't be that dumb.

    From what i was reading. Players in this beta round don't have there characters wiped. that is what massively said at least. they said if u bought game u get beta acess and unlimited access but they are gonna allow others to have limited time access to beta across the next week or so. 

    characters will not be wiped from what i read and understand. 

  • XandrosXandros BerlinPosts: 27Member
    Im pretty sure there will be a wipe after beta ends.

     1)  why do you think you were getting it for free?

    2)  Who told you that it would be for free?

    3)  IF IT WAS OFFICIAL, show us a link.
