Important news for those of us who are playing the Elite Dangerous gamma: Frontier Developments confirms that user accounts will not be reset to zero (an action known as wipe), with which we will keep the money, ships and achievements accumulated since the gamma started. The news has been received with great joy by most users.
Others, however, would have preferred to start from scratch, especially those who are not playing gamma, and who consider that they will start at a disadvantage on December 16, when the gamma concludes and the game itself begins. There are also people who have taken advantage of gamma to test and antagonize factions, which may not interest them for the final release, but surely there is a way to force a voluntary wipe, even if it is by contacting technical support. In any case, as they have confirmed on the game forums, everything we do in the scarce week remaining until the launch may be useful to us when the entire Elite: Dangerous machinery is put into operation.
