One thing akin to a digital serial killer is circulating in Future 2 proper now. It’s not affecting all that many individuals within the grand scheme of the participant inhabitants, nevertheless it’s nearly probably the most terrifying factor that may occur to you within the sport. Complete characters are being deleted, and nobody appears to know why.
This has been documented through reddit and Twitter a handful of occasions, and within the first and most excessive profile case, Bungie acknowledged the problem and tasked a particular workforce to assist restore the character. However additionally they stated they discovered no proof it was occurring to others. That…doesn’t appear to be the case.
I awakened as soon as once more to one more publish on reddit about this, bringing the overall to shut to half a dozen, from what I’ve seen. Once more, a tiny quantity, nevertheless it’s gotten lots of people spooked, saying they don’t need to log in till it’s confirmed that is fastened. I’m not scared sufficient to cease enjoying, however I’ve been checking day by day to see if my characters are there, simply in case.
If this does one way or the other occur to you, nevertheless, I’d advise one specific plan of action.
The primary factor it is advisable to do is not make a brand new character. This could get rid of the potential in your character to be restored by itself. Prior to now, generally there has been a bug the place as a result of server points, a personality seems deleted, or the sport will begin up and put you within the new participant/create a personality display screen. However normally after a reset that goes away, and nothing was misplaced. This occurred to me as soon as, and it ended up being advantageous.
In these new situations, restarting the sport doesn’t appear to be fixing the problem. However one factor that can actually not assistance is remaking your character.
For now, it doesn’t seem the Bungie Assist boards are going to be productive right here. In right now’s case, the one that misplaced their character posted their plea on the discussion board that was met with an automatic response about Bungie not restoring characters that had been both by accident deleted or deleted if somebody took over your account. However in these latest circumstances, neither seems to be occurring. Your finest guess is to contact a CM like Liana so she will be able to ahead this alongside, together with all of the proof you may present. You possibly can attain out to me, additionally, and I’ll attempt to unfold the phrase.
I can not confirm all the present experiences of character deletions, however I’ll say the unique particular person this occurred to was accused of faking it, proper up till the purpose it was revealed Bungie stepped in with a repair to assist them. Bungie didn’t, nevertheless, clarify what had occurred, and I believe it’s time we began listening to extra about precisely what’s occurring. Even when it’s solely affected a half dozen individuals out of one million gamers, these circumstances have bene excessive profile sufficient to fret some individuals.
One preventive step you may take is swapping to a disposable loadout whenever you sign off of your character. In essence, a bunch of rubbish gear so in the event you log in subsequent time and also you’re character’s gone, a minimum of you didn’t lose your god rolls, that are as an alternative saved in your vault. There have been no experiences of any vault content material going lacking, solely particular person characters. That stated, I nonetheless the possibility of this occurring to any particular participant stays extremely distant, and this can be overkill. Nonetheless, I do know individuals which are doing it.
Hopefully we hear extra from Bungie quickly about this, because it’s in all probability time to determine what’s or is just not occurring right here.
