    hi,

    these questions are addressed to gm.

    firstly, characters which will be created during beta test will be deleted or not?

    and, secondly, the beta test will be here only for a stress test or you will doing some fixes and adjustments about god?

    thanks,

    jaeha

    what you monkeys dont understand in this ?
    many mmo kept character beta for their release and since innova isn't ncsoft it's normal to ask if they will have the right to do some adjustement on god.

    well, on last beta/pts made by innova all character were 85 lvl on start with gear etc. and the server had boosted rates.
    so i think now it will be the same and there will be a character wipe for sure.

    i am not sure the sun will rise tomorrow...
    heck, you cant be even sure about the past these days, how can you be sure about the future ?
    since this is new and all ppl will start fresh, it is possible they will keep chars and have a different server for level 85+ boosted rates, w/e.
    it may be as you said, but that is far form 100% (i.e. sure)

    pts is apart from real servers...so wipe or not it doesn't matter much, since it's on a test server they open just when they want to test out something. you can pretty much say there will be a wipe, because it's not an open beta like in the majority of f2p you see.

    i pretty much like the theory of having a boosted rates + lvl 85 chars to test god out, and then wipe it all when ending beta test phase to start from scratch (lvl1).

    my bad, 99% then. happy now? :eek:

    happened once, might happen again.
    with higher level chars you can explore much more areas/check quests/translations etc.

    true, however, lower level areas must be tested also, as well as content above 90.
    i see it like regular servers open in the same time with pts so at low level you can test stuff without much risk, while for higher levels you have the pts.
    it may or may not be a wipe int he regular servers, also events to give free stuff that will be sold in stores later to show ppl what they miss, etc. at low levels doesnt matter much.
    this is a special case, it is not a game with a lot of chars maxed out going f2p, nor one that is just launching, it is a mix of a launching game with a custom boost using online shop/microtransactions, it aint gonna be easy, i vote for a mixed testing environment, no matter how demanding this will be on staff, it is a way to test them in the most demanding environment, in the worst case, if something breaks so bad, there will be rollbacks and such a possibility will be put upfront to everyone, like:
    hey, we give you some boosting pack for free, but you will put up with possible rollbacks, restarts, lags, crashes, etc.
    in the same time there will be a pts for level 85 chars to test higher content in the same time, that will really be wiped later and will have high rates.
    my 2 cents.

    on the pts you still needed to make the quests to class transfer, so low level npcs/areas were also tested thoroughly.

    but as you said before, now we can just play the guessing game and we can't be sure which of us will be right - or neither, that's too a possibility.

    lineage2 us itself actually allowed people to carry over there chars from the beta so its not a stupid question more like a lack of knowledge on your part with your answer

    however in the faq you can download about the beta ran by innova it actually states that chars will be wiped upon beta completion

    i wonder, it's would be kind of weird.
    they are planning for a release of early december, so i guess that's not the beta.
    if the characters do not carry over, wouldn't the beta be far to short, i think the idea of an open beta without whipe on normal rates would be the best way to check stability and performance and such.

    i think all of you missed something. god is already tested by them on the ru server, so testing here will most probably be just server test ( stress w/e ) to see if the data transfer and such things is set correctly and can withstand w/e is needed. ofcourse if some bug is found it is welcome, but my guess is that because of that the client is tested and ready, the beta will be quite short.

    regards,
