I had been pondering a scenario in my head for a while. I was curious what a player would do if they logged in one day and found their bank was completely empty, and they had nothing to give them a head start to rebuild (no planted torstols, no MTK, no torstols already planted, and no friends for a loan)
Honestly, a complete server reset, while an interesting idea, would probably be the end for me. I loved doing the quests, and I like playing now, but I can't imagine starting over. I've been somewhat debating about quitting video games all together. That's part of why I am trying to resist my brother trying to convince me to buy Skyrim with him. I don't want a whole new time sink, as much as I think I'd like it.
Also, I loved playing on the PVP servers. I had so much fun fighting in cities, running away through buildings, climbing stairs and crossing second floor connected buildings (ardy marketplace). I would support bringing back a server or two for PVP worldwide.
He described that part poorly. It's not about resetting all servers, just some of them. The idea is a group of servers are set aside with a reset economy and anybody logging in for the first time will find their character has fresh stats/quests/bank/etc. The normal servers would still be there. In that case, a majority of people aside from checking out the new servers, will go back to playing the normal set as they have developed characters there. However, many people will still take a stab at the idea of a fresh character in a relatively fresh economy. The author is just theorizing what the initial economy will look like during that time.
I too would like to see a PvP server or two brought back on line. I wouldn't go there myself, but it seems like a nice idea for people that enjoy pk'ing.
