Character Wipe

Postby Tzan » Thu Apr 29, 2010 4:40 pm

So the characters are getting wiped before May 6.

"Due to lags and loading issues in previous test sessions, we’ll be updating the entire structure of the character database. The new version will not be compatible with the old, which means that all minifigures will get wiped prior to the May 6 test session. Even though this might feel a little upsetting, it's truly for your benefit only as game performance will greatly improve!  We hope you’ll have fun building new minifigures, and enjoy the enhanced performance of the game."

There were actually people on the forums that were thinking they could keep the beta characters. I can't wait to see the reaction :twisted:

Although since all posts are pre moderated we might not see many.

I was expecting this, actually. Two guys I know got into Alpha, and said that their characters and scores had been wiped just before release of Beta.

Didn't stop me from making "RossInBeta" though.

You know what's ridiculous? They rejected "Ross Varn" multiple times. I was considering submitting a name that said "ROSSVARNISN'TMYREALNAMEPEOPLESTOPBLOCKINGIT".

I forgot to mention this last week.

So a few weeks ago we got wiped. I started again like everyone else.
Then the next week my character was wiped again. I didnt see anyone on the web site talking about that.

Did this happen to anyone else?

I did. Not that it mattered, since I was unable to load the first level with the new character.

Probably I lost mine as well but like RJ, I got a bit uninterested about the game.

My stuff: Medivo / Armylists / Battles / SPACE
