Will there be a reset at the end of the closed beta?

 

There is no gold available, so... In theory, there is nothing wrong in allowing stuff to carry over.

 

What is going to happen?

Yes, there will be a wipe after closed beta, just before open beta.

So, why do we have no gold? To test how grind-ish the game is? We all know it will be grindy...

Without the gold, the free xp cost of some commanders now feel a bit high.

 

But it is not actually too high, as it has always been this way. Just that gold made it so easy and now, feels so slooooow.

The commander one really bothered me. I really wanted to check out boudica...once you get to Tier 4-5 though, you can easily rake in 300-400+ commander XP a battle. Which makes the cost pretty reasonable i guess, i put all the starting gold into free xp and got her unlocked in a few hours.

 

Then once i got to Tier 4, i was able to get Alexander and Militades unlocked pretty fast as well (2000/8200)

If WG follows suit with their other beta tests, there will be a wipe before open beta starts, and a wipe right before release.  And, hopefully, if you have enough battles, you'll get a low tier premium unit(s) for free!  Usually a tier II unit, for grinding silver and xp.  Give me some Germanic spear men please!

Will I get to keep the premium units I bought as part of the bundles? Auxilary cav and the Tier 5 Barbarian slingers.

If you used gold from the bundle, the gold will be refunded to you and you can spend it again. If the units came in the bundle itself, you keep them.

"So we're aware that there were a few posts saying that the closed beta would last 8 weeks, and that was our initial idea when we were still in Alpha, but of course we knew that the final number would depend heavily on what we learned during the closed beta. We don't want a long closed beta, but we also don't want to rush it, and as you can see, we want to implement new features alongside balancing updates. So, I don't think that it will be exactly 8 weeks, but I don't think we'll be too far off that."

Darn, I am not really bothering to play / wait for matchmake while there's another reset coming.

 

Can we get any word on if there will be another wipe / reset between open beta and 'release'?

There currently isn't one planned, but that isn't a promise. Plans may change.

This has been my experiencee with WG prior to this.  WIpe after Alpha.  Wipe after Closed Beta.  SMooth transition from Open Beta to game.  These days, online games open beta's are pretty much what releases were 15 years ago.

That is my experience as well, however CA is the developer so I would imagine if they feel a reset is absolutely required for some reason WG will oblige them. We'll have to wait and see basically.

Hello THEXPPKILLER,

 

After the wipe, you will keep item(s) that you purchased in the Premium shop, so you will start out with any Gold and/or Premium time that you bought.You will also have experience and knowledge of the game, commanders and units, allowing you to focus on the one(s) that you enjoyed the most. And, of course, you would have spent that time and effort in a Closed Beta helping to improve Total War: ARENA :)
