I'm just gonna say I was really hyped about this... until during my first drug run, a wild UNDERCOVER COP USING A CIV VEHICLE AND AN MX WITH A MRCO decided to check heroin proc and  go after me, downed me and sieze everything I had. Not even crying about the money and time lost but how and why are retarded cops like this guy, allowed to patrol and fight people using pistols and 10k in bank, while they have all their normal loadout, really stupid. See you on monday, not playing this retardation.

Thank you for your feedback. I will be briefing other officers to not leave the HQs until the weekend is over so that you can run your drugs without hassle.

Uhh. I don't want to sound condescending here. But did you think running an illegal item as a fresh spawn would be the greatest play? Risk everything you have on one run? There are a billion legal methods with minimal risk.

just so you now, I have seen other cops running around in offroads, no vest, using pdw or TRGs... 80% of civs are running around without guns or just using pistols and things like that... maybe you still dont understand the problem.

 

probably like 90% tbh*

 

anyway whatever, do what you want, idc.

Fresh start would be great.

 

However I will not be playing in the temp restart as its not something im personally interested in, others might, good for getting feedback.

But PLEASE do not make this the released server version, If you are going to do this try to do it on a weekend because us adults with jobs get bent on that end with doing this at the time you did. Try to come up with SOME new content before you do the release.

Thats all you even can use on cop for the first hour or so. UC slots already have a vest and spar by default, normal slots don't, which is why you saw a "heavily" geared UC and a bunch of basically naked cops, that UC had a very basic loadout

What I am just struggling to understand is surely a few weeks after a wipe the server will just be back to the state it was in prior to the wipe, albeit with lower numbers? I cannot understand how the server could be wiped effectively without significant changes to the server, money in general and the like so that it's actually different. If domination continues to make money out of thin air and passive income continues to exist we are surely just doing the same thing again? 

The only thing I do see a wipe fixing is the prime real estate hoarding problems that I know people in the meeting talked about alot, but is that not easily fixable by some of the hour requirement/inactive property tax suggestions being implemented or just refunding the people and taking the sheds being held by hoarders for 1+ year who barely play 1 hour a month on the server?

tl'dr: I don't think a wipe is gonna have any significant impact at all apart from lower playercount even more, unless it comes with significant update or set of updates that entices people to come back and start again. Also unbanning cheaters comes across as really desperate, but that's a whole other argument 🙃

not a fan honestly. played the last year and worked for the houses I have, if the wipe ends up being perma then I will probably stop playing the server. I would be perfectly fine for a money wipe and maybe a cap for the ammount of money you have and even a wipe for house inventories but the actual houses im not a fan of.

Link to comment

fan of wipe, can wipe houses too for all i care, but if you don't wipe houses you need to implement my housing upkeep suggestion or houses are literally going to be hoarded for eternity. also if you do decide to wipe with houses wiped too use different server file than this one. you said wipe would be saturday and sunday but then did it on friday so alot of people werent even on or ready for it

Yes people will get millions sooner or later, that's expected. However a wipe allows us to completely revamp the economy to keep this from happening so soon, wipe passive money making all together, and get rid of all the "stale" cash and houses being held by inactive players, etc etc.

 

If you want the truth, in my opinion a wipe would allow the server to recover from the ungodly amount of cash Slick pumped into the economy. The economy was stable until his patches. It's like clipping a dead limb off of a flower just for it to grow back healthier. Think of it that way mr @Michael L

yea if it doesn't get quality of life updates (to fix the economy) and actual new content we should hopefully be good. now as the wipe has fixed the economy.

wait, genuine question, is there a point in playing the wipe or is it gonna go back to normal server soon?

it's gonna go back to normal but if the reception is good it's likely they'll use this database moving forward.

Sure it will reset the economy, but people will get money back over time (if they bother playing, I know many won't), and then we will be back to exactly where we are now because no one is making any new content...

I said this on another post yesterday, the only thing added since DECEMBER 2021 that you might class as content is quests, of course people are getting bored and stopping playing the server hasnt had anything new to do in almost a year...

 

If the economy is the main problem why not just look at adding some money sinks, i.e actually impactful taxes on sheds/3 crates in certain areas. If the economy is in such a dire state why hasn't anything been done to solve it and all of a sudden it needs a wipe?

No ones gonna make money in 2022

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Asylums player base is a lot different to what it was, in general the community has aged quite a bit, more people have families and even more have finished school or whatever and are focused on a career, people don't have the time/nor want to spend the time doing fucking coke runs on arma 3 to afford a few kits...

Yes people have millions, but why is that a problem, its been this way for years, sure people have more, but once you're into the millions it doesn't really matter? If we take everyone's money away a good chunk aren't coming back.

To me this is gonna finish the server once and for all. People are busy and 90% of the player base gets on to fight other than the random who prob aren’t even on the forms. I will be quitting if the wipe goes through and I know a lot of others will too. This server is fun and I think my idea to get some more fighting and introducing a new dom money system will be much better than a server wipe. Again a new currency you guys can control and manage and will make people fight main if they wanna fight dom. I know a lot of people don’t wanna run drugs for hours and hours to pull up to cartels and die to someone sitting in a bush. I think we need to keep the server, and try to make people have more interested in fighting feds and cartels.

Bring back the casino, and if your gonna keep the wipe you have to make new stuff for us to spend our money on we have all grinded to get rich but get to a point where there is nothing to spend all the money you have earned on. At that point there is nothing to do. A 2-4 man group cannot do much in the server because they end up fighting (gangs) that are basically the size of an army I think a gang limit would be nice as well

P.S. Fuck DH

I personally have never played on another life server, the thing really tying me to asylum is people and assets I liked it so why go to another.. It does seem other servers have more active devs and players than this server. however.. You just might see alot of people who are in the same boat leave to another server because they dont want to do the same thing again and would rather do something new.

Food for thought. 

 

*Me personally* this doesnt mean im going to another server.

Same here.  Wipe goes perm, Im done.  I invested so much time, grinding and crafting to just watch it get flushed.  I would never trust any future investments of my time.  Just my opinion.

Ask Olympus how their server wipe worked for them. Nearly ended the server

Oly wiped in like 2015 the server was hardly out when it wiped thats why it was almost closed this is not the same situation. Also please if you decide to wipe @Mitch (IFRIT) have a release date and a time people can be on for it not the middle of a work day. pleasessseese

My suggestions would be:

1. Limit houses to three per person
2. Raise the house storage an additional 500-1000 more
3. Knock every person's bank account down to 5 million
4. Cap a person's wealth at 5 million.
5. Don't wipe the contents of houses

My two cents

can you devs connect or do something about new apd/emt whitelisted (players) id's for this fresh server db?

A temporary solution has been found by the AFD/APD staff. If you are still needing a whitelisting update on the event server, reach out to the respective factions staff members on TeamSpeak or Discord and they will get you set up.

I don't understand what the complaints are about. you're all experienced players and know how to make money. literally do one run and ur set I don't understand what the issue is. people are moving around the map and server is alive again. server pop hasn't hit more than 90 in the last few months and today it hit 107 players which was more than oly for quite awhile.  I don't understand how you guys enjoy killing naked players in city's for hours with more money than you know what to do with. all we need is new content and the server is heading in the right direction IMO.

Edit: the server pop is at 133 ppl rn

Also shouldn't wipe stats imo.

They should deactivate federal events for the beginning, and remove the free cop loadout, this would make it more fair for civs

No, any fed event is the best way to make money. We had to risk all our money to buy and orca and loadouts. We had $0 left when we did the first bank and we won. Its not our fault cops cant beat 6 people when they have 3 mraps.
