Before I begin I want to clarify that the objective of this thread is to encourage the active development of Fonline and the Fonline Comunnity.
Wipe is a lie.
It's not anytime "soon" and in fact it might not be "ever". The development team is relying on too many people, people who aren't producing, and there is still way too much content to put together to release, progress is not speeding up it's crawling to a halt and should be considered as all but stopped.
With the holidays upcoming the project will be all but abandoned until next spring, and in the spring, the developement team will find themselves busy with life/school/work etc; and continue the non progress / inactivity we see today.
Let's remember for a moment that this time last year - we were promised "Wipe by christmastish"; it's been 12 months instead of 2.
Even in a best case scenario from now, judging from the workload and what's actually complete a reasonable prediction would be a best case scenario of 14 months until wipe.
FURTHER - If you actually read what's been talked about by the dev's over the last two years, they are changing the entire meta of the game; not only is there a massive content shift, but the game meta content is going to be totally different then what is reloaded today. It will not be anything near the same game - and that is not a good thing.
You will not recognize Fonline - Reloaded after wipe. It will be a far cry from 2238; and you will most likely be disappointed with these changes.
FURTHER - Even if wipe was tomorrow, and you logged in and explored the new content. There is no plan post wipe. Fonlilne might have a good month or two or three possibly, but then we find ourselves here again anyways.
BOTTOM OF THE PIT - With the rapid decline in the community, and absolutely NO PLAN to support / assist / encourage / develop the existing community, and it's activity. Fonline will continue to decline as it has over the last year; and even if/when Wipe comes. There will hardly be anyone left to care.
CALL TO ACTION #1: Prove me wrong. Wipe soon. or Get embarrassed when my prediction runs true. Get a move on with progress - we all want to see this succeed; and the community loses out for everyday it takes.
CALL TO ACTION #2: Promote the community with events and activities; there are plenty of hardline Fonline Community volunteers who would be happy to do this; and its certainly a better solution then entirely hiding/being-disengaged from the community at large. Make this happen!
CALL TO ACTION #3: Don't ruin reloaded by turning it into an entirely different game.
