Salem : Character Wipe & Server Reset Announced

Posted Feb 19, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Salem players have been informed by the development team that, in preparation for a large update, all characters will be wiped and that servers will be completely reset. Because of extensive reworking of several in-game functions, the team felt this was the better option. Players will not lose purchased items or items gained by preordering Salem. The wipe is expected to take place approximately two weeks from now.

I am really butthurt. You said you wouldn't do this.

We did not arrive at this decision lightly. We have considered all our options (including selective, limited wipes, simple introduction of a new server, &c), and for various reasons found them wanting. It is true that it has been our ambition to not make more world resets, and I hope that it can continue to be thus. The problem of server over-establishment can, however, hardly be solved in any way other than by pruning servers, which we feel leaves us scant options. The introduction of significantly reworked systems for character development also gives cause for balance concerns if we do not introduce them to a tabula rasa.
