A history of wipes of player levels and stashes so far:

Spoiler

After the long period between the 3rd and the 4th wipe I recall BSG saying they wouldn't let times between wipes take that long again. This also means you can expect them to say nothing or "soon" for the next four and a half months max, just so you can get an idea.

I think most people would agree that its around wipe time now

BUT

it doesn't really matter when the players are ready, its much more important that the wipe comes with a big or big enough update.  Otherwise there is really no point

Btw I think we will have only one wipe till 1.0 when they rework economy and release streets. Now they have test servers and they don't needs wipes anymore for small changes.

Wow, 7mo is a long period before wipe.

I'm considering buying this game if there's an Xmas sale.

Some friends said I'm gonna get owned by people with high armor and best guns + bullets if I join this late in the wipe lol.

I can only advise you against doing so with the cheater situation and especially, if it's this late in the wipe. You won't even be able to really learn the game, if you join now. You need a somewhat level playing field.

Wipes are trash, same garbage quests and trash gear/ammo.

feel free to reset your own account if you want though.

you could use garbage armor and a non modded gun and still wipe sqauds, im level 36 with 25 million, i dont bring in the best armor and i very rarely will use the meta weapon builds... Its all about the ammo you use

This doesn't even come close to a wipe and it certainly doesn't help newer players. A wipe is about everyone starting out with equal gear. Why do I even have to explain that.

2 weeks.

after 2 weeks all PMC run with the same high tier gear as they used them now. Some of them are lvl 15, other lvl 50

Nah, those are just the ones who don't take breaks or know their way around. Most people need months to get there.
Also, I'm not even a fan of how the game is handled, the wipe-based approach. However, at this point there is no incentive for most people to play at all.

without the flea, yeah, ut does take some weeks, but not months.

If you know, how to make money, how to solve some quests, than there will be the same as usual... all PMC goes after hitting lvl 10 to the Flea, get some tier 5 aromor, HK 416 and 60 rounder with m995.

 

well exept from me, who doesn´t buy weapons, armor or ammo from the fleamarket

I want seasons implemented. Give us rewards for competing, season stats ect and wipe each season. Otherwise it just gets old, quests done, hideout done, running the same stuff over and over. It gets old, every wipe those first couple of months are the best part of the game.

Once 1.0 hits mandatory wipes will stop.

However SOMETHING along the lines of either an additional "Seasonal PMC" in the menus or an optional wiping will be involved. I pitched that idea a while back and one of the Emissars confirmed that "something like that" would be implemented.

If you are interested ::

We need a wipe every 4 weeks. EfT does not have more content.

There is nothing stopping you from resetting your profile each month.

This is not a wipe... EfT is so much better when 98% of all items are not useless. And that always happens after a month at the latest.
