If the server goes ahead of the update being unfavourable to wipe, we have to consider things thoroughly. I know we can all be generous enough as to help the server pick up its population. However, tossing off mid class stuff for the new comers, which mostly of us do to help, may discourage the new comers, to think that stuff in Pie are easy to get and such stuff are just for giving away, despite Pie being low rate server. Their view of Pie as to come, play and enjoy may be gone because it is less thrilling than what they expected it is going to be. The power gap is another thing. A lot of new comers often first think of the gap between average and high profile players. It motivates them, to think that gap is something not unmeasureable, intimidating as to make them quit so easily and believes at the challenge.
If however, Matias has decided to go ahead of the wipe, and if by any chance the update is Renewal, the difficulty of Renewal on a low rate server is something to be greatly considered. My brother and I had a chance to play Renewal once before with a new server, of course we all started with scratch, but only because of the rates and the levelling/drop system of the Renewal being disabled was the reason we all coped up. We need a certain number of things to pick up numbers, keep them around for longest time possible and give them the excitement and fun the reason why they played Pie. If necessary, the rate has to be revamped to satisfy everyone. Advertisement is also a must to pick up numbers. We need well-structured and enough organization (GM(s)/Staff) to keep players stick around. The enjoyment of playing is something with GM/Staff around.
Anyways, what's up everyone? How are we doing? It's been a very long time, huh. :))
