Battlestate Games has announced the installation of patch 0.12.11, which will wipe all of the existing player data and allow players to start anew. Having the chance to hop onto a brand new progression is always exciting in Tarkov, grinding all the way up until the Kappa container. The Kappa container in the game is the ultimate reach that only hardcore players can reach after completing all of the quests in the game.
Today, Battlestate Games has announced that the installation of patch 0.12.11 has already begun, and it is occluding right now as this article is being written. The servers have already been shut down.

As announced, the maintenance time should last around 4 hours if everything goes smoothly. Judging by the previous wipe and major patch deployment, it may need less than 4 hours to upload the patch and bring up the servers. Nevertheless, problems are expected, as they have always been present in the past. Connection hiccups and other breaking anomalies are expected to take place.
Nevertheless, Battlestate Games has achieved quite a lot of experience over the past, which may turn the tides and prove everyone in expectation of those problems wrong.
