NQ: Time to answer the question - Will there be a wipe? in General Discussions Posted March 22 3 hours ago, blundertwink said: Some will be mad, but I think there's a misunderstanding of the demographics if people think wiping the servers will "kill" the game. The beta population is tiny. Too tiny to be a concern for NQ's bottom line. Especially betas on an actual subscription. The difference between keeping all the beta players and losing them all is almost immaterial at the scale they need to achieve to stay solvent. They needs 10s of thousands of subs to turn things around. To maintain at the scale of their company today, they'd probably need near 100k subs -- and $12 million/year in revenue isn't even enough for a company of NQ's size and costs. So...NQ doesn't really care if every beta leaves because they decide to wipe or decide to not wipe. They'd rather keep us, sure...but they're going to do whatever believe will get them to that scale, and "will beta players leave" just isn't an important part of that calculation. I agree with that. The population is laughably low right now. 30+ people I use to play with all quit ages ago. They need to make a splash and get new players. 50k subs I'd say minimum but probably closer to 100k like you said is needed.
