3 Dumb Reasons Why The Beta Shouldnt Transfer (imo)

I personally would rather not have a wipe but if it happens it happens and its whatever but the 3 dumbest reason for why the beta should wipe that I keep hearing are just annoying, her me out. 1-First Day OP- This one is highly stupid considering the fact that everyone one is just worried about getting stomped in the Crucible when over half the community I can guarantee just want to play the actual game explore and grind for gear. Plus you are straight delusional if you don't think dudes are gonna get the game at midnight go home hit lvl 8 in 4 hours or just play all night getting to lvl 14 to roll you in the Crucible at 3 in the afternoon the next day. 2-Its Not Fair For People That Didn't Play The Beta- No its not fair you want Bobby over heres lvl 12 AR to get wiped just cause you couldn't find a way to put down 5 bucks on a game in a years time, plus once again you can get to a decent lvl to hang in the Crucible in all of 4-5 hours get over it. 3-It Ruins The Story Experience- Lmao no it doesn't if you cant remember in a month that your first run of missions led up to the defeat of a giant eyeball named Sepiks Prime than you have issues. I personally will no doubt be able to jump right back in to where I left off if the beta carries over and be happy I didnt have to spend 5 hours doing something I've already done and just immerse myself into gear hunting. These are 3 dumb reasons I keep hearing, in conclusion either way I'm stoked for the game and really happy with how the beta feels and how fun it is, if it carries over that would be great if it doesn't I'll get over it for sure cause its no big deal but at least come up with better reasons for why it should. EDIT Ok so people just don't fully read and cant realize I am honestly not for or against a wipe. Either way I'm gonna play this great game and be happy. I'm just arguing my point against the 3 dumbest reasons why it should wipe in this post, so please quit with the personal attacks with the stand point of "OP wants a Transfer' I know damn well the chances of a wipe are 98% I'm just asking for people to stop regurgitating the same 3 damn reasons.

  • Beta shouldn't transfer for the simple reason is that it's a beta. Things can change between now and the final product. And some things will. The point of the beta is to help find bugs and to evaluate the various aspects of the gameplay to see what works and doesn't work as well as they suspect.

        I won't mind as long as we can skip cutscenes. Edit: I mean the scenes we have already seen 3 times in "Beta" already.

            I think a good system would be to be able to put 8 items of your choice in the vault to be able to keep. This equates to one item per weapon slot and armor slot. (Unless I miscounted) Or you can have more weapons less armor, you get the idea. This way a limited amount of items are taken to the main game so beta players feel rewarded but first time players aren't going to feel left out for having guys running around with a bunch different legendary guns stomping kids. But levels should be reset. Leveling was accelerated in the beta so you would have time to max all the characters. And all the players that want to be all "I WORKED HARD FOR ALL MY STUFF AND PLAYED FOR 17 HOURS AND ARAFAJRGAGHAGSKGAJSVG" will be level 8+ again in like 6 hours anyways.

            • Reason 2 is crap honestly. There are tons of people that don't keep up with Destiny info like we do. There are a lot of people that are just like, "Oh Destiny, that's sci-fi right? That sounds awesome! I think I'll get it." A lot of the casual gamers aren't gonna even know about the beta, so it's not like they specifically chose not to pre order. And I've found a handful of people on these forums (like myself) that are on vacation during the beta. So your thought that people that aren't playing the beta because they didn't preorder is flawed.

                • I think we should be able to choose one item of each slot to our next characters. Each "bag" of item can be chosen by each character you create.

                • i dont see what the big deal is if its reset to be honest. everyone will get back to where they were, everyone will find more gear, and might find better gear than they did in the beta. Maybe its because im use to beta's being reset that i dont invest a lot of time in a beta because of that fact. But, i see it as no big deal at all.

                • I don't think your level and story progress should carry over because I doubt you will level up so quickly in full release. but I think any gear you have in your vault should be kept, your faction ranks (crucible, crypt arch, iron banner etc) and marks. Glimmer I'm on the fence about because just like the rate at which you earn XP, the rate that you earn glimmer might also have changed in full release. I wouldn't mind the slightest if they wiped glimmer though. Just like the OP, I wouldn't mind what they do either way because I'm gonna put enough time into the game regardless to get most everything maxed out. But if they kept the things I mentioned above I think it would be a nice gesture by bungie and save us a bit of time come September.

                • Let's be honest, most people calling for a wipe just haven't found anything worth keeping. For those of us lucky enough to find legendaries and exotics it'd be a shame to have them removed due to your jealousy.

                  • To be fair, for number 3, we can't really say for sure if that was truly the beginning missions or not. The fact that we don't know what will be in the final product, I think, is a pretty good reason to not transfer. The other two reasons are pure crap though.

                    • resetting everyone to zero is a totally fair thing to do. none of us deserve to start ahead for playing an early version of the game. It takes 10-20 hours to accumulate what we all have earned. and knowing its a BETA is the reason people should not have played through and got excited over gear. especially when you cannot use it in the BETA... The game for all we know could start out differently...

                      • Dev: "okay! Let me just hit the "transfer-beta-progress-to-full-game-button" and it will be done." Maybe you've never played a beta but sorry to inform you: it doesn't work that way. Be realistic. Don't expect this to happen, its a beta [u]test[/u], and you knew this the moment you started playing. Sorry if you feel like you "wasted" your time.

                            Finally a someone who gets it. I mean, with the content that is in the beta right now, people who haven't played the beta will catch up in a matter of hours.
