No wipe...

...just in case anyone missed it and is interested: it was confirmed on Monday there will be no wipe in moving from gamma (the current release) to the release version on 16 December. Looks like it's time to get playing properly :D

I have to say that I would actually prefer a wipe. I think it would be nice that everyone starts at the same level. I guess not wiping allows for more player variety in the galaxy.

I would also like the option to start a New Commander without all the "kick starter" or any other perks. Even the basic New Commander with Side Winder and 100Credit still gives me a free eagle (a freegle I believe) that I can sell immediately for 40,000 cr I think.

The Gamma 2 release also includes an impressive set of tweaks, improvements, bug bashing.

No matter what online game I play, I continually come up against people who seem to know it all, have it all and deride any one that has just started :lol: These type of players frighten the life out of me as they seem so obsessed. I do like taking my time and attempt to enjoy everything. So it won't matter to me if there was a wipe or not, I'll still be at the back waving at the groovers and shakers on the server. This game is the only one in like two decades where I strongly want to purchase and play it from the moment it is released.

Make sure you join the TSD clan Dave. Once you are on the game search for "Nobkins" in the friends management system in game and add me. Then we will hopefully see each other in space every now and again!

Will do Jim. I just about managed to get in on the pre-purchase and then attempted to complete the training missions without knowing what the buttons were. Think I'll wait for the complete noob introduction. What are the chances of us bumping into each other amongst 400 billion star systems?

Well, all I can say is.... not very user friendly is it :lol: I'm still trying to familiarise myself with the controls and trying to control the bloody thing working through the training. My user name is 'Dave_Spudgun'. Sadly, both Dave and Spudgun were already taken. :o
