we'll also utilize dynamically fluctuating server caps that will prioritize performance/stability.

The good news is, alongside the release of Alpha 3.17.2, we have worked with the design team to distribute a generous quantity of aUEC based on the number of hours you played during Alpha 3.17.1. Once the patch goes live, you'll find these credits have already been delivered straight to your mobiGlas wallet.

** we'll likely wipe again alongside the release of Alpha 3.18. This is simply due to the fact that the backend will have a major rework as long-awaited systems such as Persistence come online. **

I appreciate them awarding some additional credits, but I'm also good without them given our reps are not going to be zeroed out. It won't be that big a hurdle to get back to a comfortable position again.

I do hope they are planning to drop a crap-load of trash cans prior to PES going live, I can see a lot of empty bottles, etc. bogging down the servers. Bins that can disappear bigger items like med gowns and no longer wanted armor crates would be great as well!

It's a shame they couldn't explain how the credits were going to be allocated at the time they announced the upcoming wipe, rather than leaving it until the day before to let people know - There's probably quite a few players who missed out on "game time" during the time period due to either playing on the PTU instead of the PU, not playing because they were aware of the upcoming wipe and didn't want to invest time in something where the "reward" for their effort was going to be "taken away" not long after, taking a break due to a number of bugs in their preferred play area, etc.

That said, given there's likely to be another wipe inbound with 3.18, there's probably not much benefit to receiving extra credits for 3.17.2.

I'd be happy with enough to buy a mining laser attachment, a rifle, some ammo and a couple of medpens.

Yep that description fits me. I didn't really play since the wipe got announced.
Getting some credits, especially for those who only own a single small starter pack, is still a nice thing since 3.18 is really far out yet. I'm guessing early November for Live at best.
I wonder how much I'll get, I did a ton of bunker grinding to earn me a Pisces and a Cutty but I did it as fast and efficiently as I could, so my play time isn't that high compared to credits gained. I hope I get enough to buy the pisces back at least so I can do some shoot n loot mission in comfort.

Tomorrow is one of those words that are more at home in word salads. Today is tomorrow but yesterday was also today at one point so Friday could be the day unless it dentifies as yesterday in which case the patch has already dropped :like:
Its just that easy...Clear as mud:drunk:

It could drop soon but it's going to be a bit of a PITA if they don't fix the problems with purchasing gear and equipment PDQ.

If they had done that then people would have afked in game for days on end to get a ton of credits to start up again.
