    Default Hi im new, 1 question

    I just started playing but some people told me I could level my character for two months just to have it wiped away, is this information correct?

    What would be the point for anyone to start playing now?

    I'm just on the trial but was going to buy the game until I heard about this.

    Help ??

    Last year AV said they would never wipe, then in multiple posts this year, AV backtracked and said they're having an internal dialogue about wiping, but told the playerbase it's "not an issue for the present."

    So it can be infered that they want to wipe, and are seriously considering it, but refuse to tell the playerbase because everyone will quit the game. Whether or not they do, only time will tell, from the sounds of it they're counting on Chinese subs to pay the bills once "df2010" comes out, if the game survives to that point.

    This talk about a wipe literally caused half the players to quit already, and the fact that they refuse to honestly communicate with the consumers of their product (or recant what they've said over the last 6 months), says something in my mind about what they're going to do...ie. they're gonna wipe the game. No one wants to talk about this though because it will cause even more people to quit in droves and there's not many people left.

    Check my sig, yet 1month +- ago AV said they may would wipe.

    So reading the blog won't solve anything, they change their minds like i change sets in game. There's no concrete answer for that, since they refuse to tell us, we all believe they will wipe.

    I'll repeat that we're not going to wipe the servers in case that's still unclear.

    What a kind way to say "then you know as much as before".

    Don't worry, it's not an issue for the present.
    You won't level your char for two months to have it wiped, because even if they decide to wipe (fully or partially) with 2.0 it's not going to happen before at least one year, so, enjoy the game!

    if for some reason, all their servers 'coincidentally' crash - causing a server wipe.

    Don't worry, playing 2 months just to lose it is nothing compared to what 99% of the remaining player base will encounter.

    Consider this practice-- you'll definitely need it

    This.

    Everyone has their own opinion, some saying that a full wipe is imminent, some a partial, some that there will no wipe. The bottom line is no one but AV knows right now and the rest is speculation.

    DF 2.0 is ages away.. i mean literally. 2013 at the earliest would be my guess.

    So basically what that means is that you'll grind your ass off to the point of hating this game.. then they'll wipe it away and ask you to come back..


    but you will come back because you poured your life into the game previously..


    at that point it's up to AV to deliver or not.
