    OK all the people complaining... I see you have been here for a while and I am sure you are upset you are going to loose whatever ultimate armor and weapons you built up since its painful... but I also do not see very many people that actually donate to the project...

    Its not unreasonable to charge a monthly fee to play this IMO but they allow people to play for free and from what I see they haven't made the $2000 a month in funds the goal is set at the last 2 months... which in my opinion is VERY low

    If you get hours of fun a month out of something support it so it will be there in the future.... you will drop $40-50 going to a movie and that is only a few hours of entertainment

    On a side note... arm chair trolling is never helpful and always detrimental.....

    "Once is never, twice is always. Is there going to be a next time?"

    This statement is an incorrect inference.

    Supposedly took Thomas Edison over 1000 attempts to perfect a light bulb. He never looked at an attempt as a failure but the next step.

    So it's more about perspective.

    I don't know about other but I might use it... for stuff.

    Seriously though, that is a question for TheAnswer, not for me. I would just backup my Asian midget porn there.

    Well I mean, if the answer we get to the question "how to make sure this doesn't happen again" is "donate because we don't have the resources for weekly backups", okay I'll donate what will fix this specifically.

    With current state of development is there an argument to be made to launch Sun Crusher a bit early?

    This leads me to believe a new HDD could have been purchased prior to this merge but it wasn't. I'm not against the wipe, I'm asking why the HDD drive that died weeks ago was not replaced before arguably the most significant patch to date. Which in my mind is a perfectly reasonable question to ask.
    Because HDD wipes aren't predictable. HDD failure rates are quoted as MTBFs - Mean Time Between Failures - which means that statistically, there's a 50% chance the disk will last longer and a 50% chance it will already have failed. I've had HDDs last for over a decade and some start to fail within their warranty.

    This is a volunteer project that is focused on development and Basilisk is essentially a live test server; there's no guarantee of continuous service and we know that once the project is complete it will be wiped anyway. If this was a business, I'd totally be with you, but it isn't. I guess what it comes down to is this: you're getting alpha access to a game in development and you can choose to donate or you can choose not to donate. Either way, the development goes on and until a golden master/release candidate is ready the devs really don't have an obligation to make user progress ironclad. It's no different to installing a beta OS on your computer, there's always a disclaimer that says "if it ****s up your system, tough ****."

    I'm kinda bummed, I was hoping to get home tonight and see the old man. But the more I think about it, it'll be kinda cool to see a hell of a lot more activity and people grinding again.

    I'm not sure who said that donating more or less is directly linked to backups, but they are wrong. Donating is however directly linked to Bas existence, because if we run out of funds, Bas since it is our biggest expense, will be the first thing we will be forced to shut down. But his is nothing new, we were clear about this from the get go, if we cant afford it, we wont run it.

    Jedi will dominate pvp if there is a wipe, there will be zero weapons to stomp them with. Bye bye SB scatter, rip. Ill still play, but it's a shame i didnt get to test against jedi first. That was my main basilisk goal.

    atleast you tested it on DJM's :P

    If it wipes.. 1 suggestion to go along with a possible lower character limit, get rid of ADK's!! Long live devoted weaponsmiths and armorsmiths! (Though with a wipe that would fix the insane amount of them in game anyways).

    I for one am looking forward to a wipe. Would be nice to see everyone reset and working together to rebuild.
