    Hiya!

    Leaked by Mitch earlier this week in a live stream, there are plans to transition from Beta to release in the coming weeks.

    This post is not to cause chaos because not everything is being lost! Stay tuned for this Friday, where we announce full details of what will happen during our transition from Beta to release.

    Attached to this post is a poll, based on your current status within the Skybounds world, you will be issued a spinner following the transition to give you a headstart in the release version. This poll will help as determine what players would want to see most from these spinners.

    Thanks, guys, looking forward to filling you in on our plans this Friday!

    (We'll be collecting feedback on different things from you guys over the course of the next week! We want your input in this more than anything.)

    My opinion in this:
    I onderstand you want the reset, I dont like it but thats it.
    Also if you would give everyone free stars it would just stabilise the economy immediantly (srry)
    Free Gear would be cool because of the heavy competed skydrops
    And levels would just make live easier

    This topic isn't to discuss what's being kept. That will be talked about on Friday. This topic is to discuss what Headstart bonus is preferred amongst the community.

    I understand that we need to reset though it kinda sucks. Just as a note I feel like the people who bought items or stars with real money should be given those items or stars again after the reset. I myself have put a good chunk of money into this server and losing all of it would discourage me, and I'm sure many others, from spending money on the server.

    I will be keeping an eye out for the update on this. As for the headstart I definitely think it should be mainly items. but also some money.

    If it were up to me I would give everyone 100k per level the person has at the time of the reset and then make a kit called 'Beta Tester"/"Beta User", or something like that, for everyone that started using the server before the official release.

    The kit would be redeemable once a month and would probably include at least;
    At least 1 Ore Seed Box with 10/15 Seeds
    1 Mining Pass
    1 Enchantment Chest with 10-20 books
    1-2 Legendary Relics
    1 Random Schematic
    1 iKit Tool/Weapon (picked randomly)
    1 piece of iKit Armor (picked randomly)

    Or you could always just give each player 1 orb of dimensions and allow them to keep one chest worth of stuff to carry over >.>

    Well, I like that you guys are at least making an effort to clear things up with the community and everything else. My two cents to this though, is that if people are getting "items to fight with", can users receive a "Beta" ikit for helping savage get towards the full release?

    But yeah, thanks for the work you've been doing to get the server to this point so far, it looks great! <3

    Your "valid criticism" is making assumptions. Wait until Friday like everyone else.

    I like the stars idea because I would originally chose lvl xp but, it is that that you can't level without a good bank. I love how you asked the community rather then making decisions by yourself, although we don't know what is coming at all. Thanks @Turqmelon

    My thoughts on the reset headstart.

    You get to choose items up to 1 chest of items, (must be a small chest) and thats what you get as your headstart bonus (Kindof like an orb of dimensions, but all items in orb of dimensions are reset so people cant bypass, and u give a different item called an Op Dimension Orb)
    plus access to a beta ishard IF you started playing before full release.

    I personally would cry if I lost all of my stuff. Im not making assumptions but if a complete restart would happen, I would hope to keep my purchased ikits. Cant wait to see what comes ahead! Hope my input is helpful to you Turq.

    Would that be why It's called the Beta I shard? I really like this idea.

    Well, Nearly everyone i have talked to today has said there going to quit if it does reset i might to tbh, I have a suggestion instead, Make a new world/server for new players to go on, you can not buy immortal kits or god stuff, the best think you can get is a sharp 5 :D

    How about you stop deleting everyone's suggestions for what they want to keep, and make a poll for if the community actually wants a real reset. I don't see this going well for you guys. Perhaps more info should be released since so many players are in a panic at the moment. There is such a large chunk of players saying they will be quitting.
