is this the final wipe out or would there be more ahead

Most likely more.

These games do this so that old bugs are wiped out.

(for instance your old character had a bug hangover so they fix the bug and wipe your old character, that way the bug can’t come back)

Other reasons for wipes is so that beginer bugs (bugs in the Ace ships) can be fixed. You wouldent work on your first ship if you have a better ship. thuse a wipe is used.

(hope this answers your Q :slight_smile:

yeah it does thanks
