Blueprint system being removed?

Are you grinding blueprints to prepare for the next wipe? If so, you may want to rethink your strategy. Here’s why:

Blueprints as we know them will eventually be eliminated in favor of a level-based system. We know that for sure (details). But will this update go live in February? And what will that mean to gameplay? We don’t know, but it’s definitely something to keep in the back of your mind as you develop your post-wipe strategy.

Because what would a wipe be without some mystery, right?

1/27 UPDATE: According to a tweet from Garry (see below), mid to late Feb is when we can expect to see the XP system introduced. That said, he’s changed his mind before. Who knows?
