I'm extremely disappointed right now by this claim the best solution is to wipe. Its never the best solution to wipe. What happens when the game launches and after a month the DB starts corrupting... Oops wipe again?
Right now your just being lazy, and using poor judgement. This was suppose to be a "preorder launch" Yet... your still treating it like a full beta? Its time to face the facts here guys its to late. Your showing us this is how you'll handle it when its live. Its poor form.
If you guys really cant do anything but wipe, please for the love of god show us the schema your using for your DB so we make it so you only have to dump the tribes and totem data. There is no point characters should be effected by this at all. Its really poor design if thats whats its coming to.
