By request, we're also going to experiment with turning off "persistent profiles." This means that if you want to, you can create a new player profile on your home menu, and connect to the server as a new character. This will start you again at level 1 and basically treat you as if you were a completely different person from your previous character for all purposes - levels, points, loot, access, etc. This allows people who want to play "hardcore" mode (reset on death) to do so, or allows people who feel like they've run out of challenges to get a fresh start. It is, as emphasized above, completely optional, and will have no effect on anybody who just wants to play as usual.
See you all on the restart!
