No. A board wide event would be lovely - But a map reset feels unnecessary. Go to the full post »

The gains of a wipe will be... None? No, really, I can't think of any. There's more than enough space for new factions on the map, some factions run the chance to get recalled in the next few months as it is, which will clear up more space anyway.

 

A wipe for the sake of a wipe is redundant, even if it's framed by a board wide event.

 

No to wipe!

If anyone is curious as to why the map was reset in the first place back in 2015, here's the map before the reset.

 

 

And here's the map after.

We must have had more actual writers on in those days as well.

 

I rem there being enough writers and staff to actually make those factions viable.

Nah.

 

It's not a map thing. It's a people thing.

To push the button and end it all is an endeavour which is both destructive and callous in nature. And the fact it even is considered as a tool shows a gross lack of creativity on the part of administration and the membership of this site. 

 

I was not here for the 2015 reset, I must confess, but surely there are more diplomatic solutions to this. Surely as a collective, we must be able to come up with before we decidedly throw the towel in and decide to pack it in.

 

People constantly whine and drone about how things need to be better. How they want things to change, and so they propose the nuclear option. That all must be purged in order to satisfy their wanton wants and needs for free real estate for some half baked faction or muse. This option as it sits, is no option at all. Instead, it erases the history and culture of the board. Crushes factions which have worked hard to cultivate their domain, only to have it cruelly snatched away from them.

So, while this rant is perhaps not constructive, and does not aid anything, does put forth at least my reservations in regards to this even being tabled.

But like...Why? It seems like it only makes everyone start over. This means the newer factions get a chance to catch up to the larger factions like the Sith or First Order who have been around a long time. So it only seems to punish the factions who have put in the time to grow their turf. 

 

Plus, if were talking about Story reasons? Unless theres a REAL good IC reason for all these huge empires and stuff to just give up their territory, it just seems like we're flipping the monopoly board over because someone got mad.

I don't really see a reason to do so? And even if we were to push the proverbial big red button, I'd like the board event to do it justice (which I realize has been mentioned, yes).

 

Honestly, I'd be kinda sad to see the map get reset when there's so much room and such. A lot of development went into it, and while at the end of the day the goal is to expand your blobs, that doesn't take away from the work, effort, and story everyone has put into it.

 

If a map reset is deemed necessary in the future, sure, but as of now? Nah fam, keep them hexes where they are.
