Character Wipe?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Hanako Ikezawa, Dec 10, 2013.

    When I got the newest update (12/10/2013) I lost my character that I put 33 hours into.
    Is this only me or is there anyone else like this?

      It was said that Beta Character Wipes would Happen. Steam doesn't say anything about it though.

        Also they did warn about it on the recent update log. Check the home page for more details

            There was no mention on the steam page that this game was still in an Beta 1 phase.
            Where characters can be lost.

            I lost an character with just about 30 hours of play time.
            If the game was in such a weak state. It should not have been pushed to release (even as a beta)

              At steam page it says with cat sized letters :
              Early Access Game

              should be hint enough to even most stubborn people.

                The very purpose of an open beta is to test bugs and fix them. This includes things such as scaling, balance, and character file save methods. If you don't like the thought of a wipe, wait until Automaton or Biomechanical beta stages. saying that a game has bugs therefore it should not be released is perfectly valid, but a beta is supposed to have bugs, otherwise it isn't a beta, it is a full game masquerading as a beta.

                  Early Access does not mean wipes. Beta might and likely will lead to wipes but early access is access before the due time which does not by itself mean access into an unfinished product.

                  You could have a 4-day-early access with the product releasing 3 days after =P

                    That's kinda the reason why they have beta's... It's so they can update it and sometimes they end up having to delete characters

                        Early Access DOES mean "In development - Shit can and will happen". So quit your whining and read the changelogs on the DEVELOPER'S WEBSITE if you want to stay updated. It has never been a secret that Steam's news system is scraping the bottom of the pond.

                                Really? WoW, maybe someone should Sue bioware for putting out SwToR in early access when it was gold version.

                                It could have been more polished and less buggy? Sure, but it was Release version and certainly not a beta.


                                You are wrong. Early access doesn't mean BETA.

                                It just so happens this game is in beta.

                                  Early Access means "In development" - So yes, by definition it also means a game can be in Beta.

                                    Stage 1 beta, you agreed on this.

                                      it is beta it is your fault for not reading the description, it is on this website and highlighted where they say you will have your characters wiped at some point in time

                                      Stop whining and move on, you know you are just gonna play again anyways so why cry about it?
