So Is this game going live after they do the character wipe or what?

I was just curious to know. Thank you

We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Because the game is free to play the open beta is considered as the "release" of Path of Exile. The wipe today will be the final wipe. All your characters will be reset to lvl 1 and your items and stashes will be wiped. Thus, you can keep your characters with their names.

Just about to finish the DL'ing and what's this wipe thing? So it isn't advisable to play now?

They are wiping everything except character names and demigods for open beta. This will happen at 2pm EST today, and Open Beta starts 2 hours later. That is if my math was right, for the times.

Master Chief: Thought I'd try shooting my way out. Mix things up a little.

The wipe counter basically shows when OB begins and you can begin a new character. This will be the last wipe forever.
