To be honest I agree with NOT cutting down the map or making seasonal lore wipes. I don't like the idea of having to reboot my character every few months because of lore wipes and shit. And personally, on the character I have been continuously playing since 2017 (I've gone on hiatus before so it's not stale for me), he has a deep and rich tie to the northern parts of the map, specifically Severograd. Getting rid of this could just stop any sort of IC experience with the north. Visiting a grave, or reminiscing about your past before the infection, these can build SO much character and can enrich the rp experience a LOT. Putting a radiation zone that you could go in on the north would be interesting, but simply pulling what some rp servers do and completely walling off an area (or irradiating it so much that you can't go in there even with an NBC suit) to keep rp closer would just ruin the rp of my character, and probably many others as well. I am all for the idea of harsher radiation zones where you need a gas mask or NBC suit to enter, but A. PLease don't make it completely inaccessable, and B. Please don't make it just the northern and western fringes of the map.
