Before i invest too much time into the Beta does anyone know if they have announced a wipe before launch ?

Why kill them with kindness, when I can use an axe?

It's beta, not early release. You are there to test the game and stress the servers, not start on your permanent journey through the game.

If they let you spend money in a cash shop in "beta" than you can bet they won't wipe the character data because they want to keep what you spent.  If they don't than you can always assume they will wipe characters because that makes since for a game still under development to wipe away progress made in a unstable build of the game.

Pretty sure most people are there to demo the game. 

 

Seeing as there are 500k people who can't give feedback or report bugs. 

You may have a point about stress testing, but then they could that better with an open beta. 

 

So yeah, I'm pretty sure this beta is for demoing.

There is no cash shop so what are you even talking about?

[mod edit]

What are you talking about?  Like I said if a game has a open cash shop in beta it will likely not wipe progress if they don't they will.  Since ESO doesn't have a cash shop they are wiping all character data between beta and launch.  

You guys need to take a serious chill pill.

He doesn't need logic in his argument.  He has hate!

Not true. Just look at Hearthstone, in Beta they had cash-shop and they still whiped everything you bought. BUT they gave you the same amount back, but it was still no guarantee of getting the same cards from the packs.

My point is, a cash-shop does not instantly give a No-Whipe stamp.
