Star Citizen Alpha 3.17.2 | Database Wipe

Hi everyone,

When we introduced Long Term Persistence in Alpha 3.8.2, we shared that database wipes would still happen, albeit irregularly, throughout the Alpha stage of Star Citizen. With our last database wipe happening with Alpha 3.15, we’re now looking at the next wipe to take place alongisde the upcoming Alpha 3.17.2 patch.

More specifically, over the course of the 3.17.0/1 patch cycle, there have been a number of issues that arose that lead to the LTP Database being flooded with bad data. While heading into 17.1, we had originally aimed to surgically correct this, the unprecedented high concurrency (seriously bonkers) during Invictus Launch Week, coupled with numerous bugs lead to the issues metastasizing beyond our capability to correct manually. Therefor, as mentioned above, it’s time for a wipe.

As we have split Long Term Persistence (LTP) down into three distinct sections: Items, Wallet (aUEC), and Reputation, we can wipe specific parts of LTP as needed.

With Alpha 3.17.2 , Items and the Wallet (aUEC) will be wiped, but we’ve taken steps to ensure your current reputation remains.

In addition to clearing the database, this wipe will also fix a variety of account-related issues/bugs that some players have been unable to resolve with character resets and workarounds. Of course, as with any LTP wipe, all your account-attributed items (pledges, subscriber flair, rewards, etc.) will remain.

Lastly, with Jumptown and Nine Tails Lockdown kicking off this weekend, and many poised for profit, we’re exploring a variety of options to compensate an undetermined amount of aUEC when 3.17.2 releases, for players that we’re active in 3.17.1. More details on this to come.
