New players will get REKT anytime they join. Pre or after wipe. Doesnt matter and a poor excuse for wipes. Wipes make this game turn into a hatchet simulator and nothing more. A new player can easily get an AK and destroy every Fort+Fast MT guy. Wip wont help new players in any way.
I have currently 198hours since the last wipe. 30+ million of rubles and many skills maxed. A wipe hurts and I tolerate it only because its alpha and they add new stuff, maps and mechanics. When the game would be finished and they would wipe my hard earned progress I would just quit. My spare time is limited and not reserved for pointless grinding in Tarkov.
Btw. there will be specific raids for new players (max level 10 only). And the surpressor thing is a general problem with tarkov nothing to do with wipe topic
