Question Regarding Resets


English King
 Share

Recommended Posts

What is your stance on economy resets and full server wipes? As a player, this is the biggest problem for me. You just can't get the time and energy back from 10s or even 100s of hours played. It's an instant game-breaker for me, so now I like to ask the question before investing my time into a server.

I understand there are different reasons behind server resets and you cannot anticipate if or when you will have to do one. Do you consider them as a way to solve a problem, are you against them? I'd like to know.

This is really a question for the owner/developers.

Server resets are entirely demotivating. It’s like being told your time and support means nothing, “just deal with it”. I have the utmost faith in David and Spooky as owners as well as the development team that seems to have a really good track record in the past with their respective communities, so I don’t believe you have anything to worry about here. The experience and talent going into this server is not typical for private servers these days, far above the standard!

The most successful servers manage to avoid resets, it's that simple. Ensuring glitches/exploits/dupes aren't readily available to abuse for financial gain is one of the factors that determines stability of the game, its eco & customer/player base. A healthy economy keeps a steady stream of people trying to grind to achieve & therefore provides a higher retention rate from new players.

This is exactly why solid teams like the one we have here will not risk putting out a half-ass server at release just to draw in people. They are willing to make people antsy for that better experience and more stable server economy. I will wait as long as necessary if it means having a properly tested server with only very minor bugs at release!

Couldn't agree more ?

Barely trusted them from the start, then they promote someone and 1 day later he mass bans the whole server LOL, a fresh start with a good server is needed

Don't like em. It's demotivating to have the time and effort you put into an account wiped away. There are extreme reasons where I think having a reset is acceptable, but it should always be a last resort.

What??? Bro.... right there is a perfect example for why mods should be vetted so thoroughly before they pull something like that.

Agreed, every staff member should go through a process to make sure they aren't power hunger fiends or jerks like the case stated above.

This is why you don't have people apply to become moderators. 

I'd be much more in favor of a selection process, but I know a lot has to go into that. Like the current staff needs to be constantly taking notes regarding potential candidates, but you'd definitely notice the results I bet.

Yeah same.

You could have current player moderators scout for new players and recommend them in the staff forums. I've always thought that anyone who willingly applies for a staff position is applying because they want power/authority over the community, and that is the wrong reason to be a moderator, at least in RuneScape.
