**UPDATE** Good news. Not only is the issue fixed, but as it turns out, player progress has been restored. The good news is that the update wasn’t causing player progress to reset but was instead moving their character to a different server where progress wasn’t saved. Basically, it was just a matter of moving the charcters back to the right server. If you made a purchase after the update but before the fix, do prepare for that to be reverted. You can find out more about this on the Reddit post. **Original Piece** Apex Legends most recent update is causing problems for the players that have let it install.

Apex Legends most recent update is causing problems for the players that have let it install. According to player reports, it’s rolled their accounts back to day one — something none of us wants. There are several reports on Twitter regarding this issue from those that have installed the update warning fellow players to steer clear. The good-ish news is that the Apex Legends team is aware of the issue — obviously too late for some lost souls — and they’re hard at work trying to fix it. For now, they advise players to avoid buying or crafting anything. There was no mention of avoiding the update install, but our advice would be to just go ahead and steer clear until they have things worked out.

When Justin mentioned to me on this week’s podcast the rumor that Lord of the Rings Online’s and Dungeons and Dragons Online’s multi-day downtime last week might have been partly the result of a lack of proper redundant backups for the games, I gasped audibly. No way, I said. There’s no way a studio like SSG would make that mistake. But it’s not impossible. Companies do make this mistake. Look at how long parts of Ashes of Creation’s website has been nonfunctional. Earlier this month, the LEGO Universe emulator admitted it had lost all its website data since November. And do you guys remember M2? It was a Hangame title that was taken offline in 2011 to fix a server issue, only the company found it couldn’t restore the game from its backups, so it literally sunsetted the game right then and there. Yikes. Has your MMO of choice ever had a major data loss? What’s the worst such rollback or deletion or outage you’ve ever personally … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Has your MMO of choice ever had a major data loss?
When we covered Shroud of the Avatar’s newsletter yesterday, one of the tidbits we mentioned was the plan for craftable housing. In response to a question from a player, Starr Long essentially announced that in the launch patch next week, Portalarium is planning to tweak that system, which has long provoked claims of pay-to-win. “Yes we are going to be expanding the number of craftable houses soon. In R52 in fact we are adding a craftable inn.” So what exactly does housing entail? A helpful Redditor linked to a helpful thread on the official site just a few weeks ago breaking down how exactly you can buy property without handing over your credit card because you definitely can – that’s the good news. If you’re not a crafter yourself, you just need a specific currency, Crowns of the Obsidians, which you can buy with gold. The bad news is that you need a lot of gold. The player did a test run hunting bandits for cash and found that he was able to make … [Read more...] about Shroud of the Avatar’s housing is expensive, but not impossible to acquire without RMT
Date: 06-12-2012 Views: loading Comment: Have you ever thought that you can level up your character to the max level by just crafting? It sounds impossible because crafting seems just an add-on profession in most MMOs. Well, it now can be achieved in Guild Wars 2 as ArenaNet designer Linsey Murdock stated in a recent forum post, players will be able to level it all the way to 80 without killing a thing but crafting. According to Murdock, it works like this: "For leveling a discipline from 0-400, you will gain 10 levels along the way. By maxing out all 8 disciplines, you will gain 80 levels. That means you could dedicate a character to crafting, feed it all the mats you get on other characters and level it all the way to 80 without ever needing to kill a thing. As hardcore crafters, we think that is pretty cool." Many players shared their concern about that. Some players thought this will turn Guild Wars 2 into a P2W game since players can pay real money for gems and exchange the … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: You Can Level up to 80 without Killing a Thing
