The long awaited and much anticipated EFT Patch 10.5 and associated data-wipe was applied by BSG in the early hours of this morning. A series of bug fixes, tweaks, changes, optimisations and even some new content and features have been added to the game. These changes have come at a cost though - that being a full data reset for all players, meaning all levels, gear, quest progression and trader relations have been reset.
It is anticipated that the as next major patch, 0.11, is mainly a content patch that a full data wipe will not be likely. Based on previous trends and patterns we estimate this may mean have around 4-6 months of persistent progression before we can expect another wipe of some kind, depending upon the next major game features to be worked on and pending how well the current patch is deployed & received.
