If something like that ever did happen I would like to see lower rates, especially on quests as S grade is too easy to get at the moment in my opinion.
Personally I'm unsure if I would start over (and I don't think China would ever go with this idea) but I would like to know others thoughts on it... I think it could be fun if enough people were interested
I have also suggested this in many of my posts.
A wipe is not a simple wipe but also a restart.
I agree, would not feel right, since most of the servers wipe cuz of critical bugs, 0 pop or wipe every 6 months cuz they relaunch every 6 months.
I would say in our case we have the aging process. Too many players at high level (pensionaers ) and too few newbies.
Some solutions could be:
- a good ad-campaign to attract new people. The server is stable so ppl need to know about this
- major helping stuff for newbies so ppl could catch up easily : like no grade armor/weapon, D armor/weapon, at least 100k adena at starting so they can buy freaking soulshots. and more buffs from the newbie guide (up to lvl 40).
- if demanded, 12x XP for lvl 1-20, 9X for 20-40 and normal XP for 40+) with the command /setxp : 8,9,10,11,12 etc.
- active server staff to investigate bots/issues/bugged teleports/characters stuck/etc
As I suggested, many players are high lvl, top geared already. This definetly discourages any new player or clan to join. if major boost for newbies isn't done, they won't come.
Personally I'd more 10 more happy to join a 250 FRESH PEOPLE server that barely started than a lol 500 with every1 full S (boxes as well full S and 3rd class) and not stand a chance in any close future (when you'll have S the othes 70 % will have S +10).
The major/critical issue is new playes don't join. If new players don't join, the old ones will leave 1 by 1 and server will be less populated shortly.
