    Greetings!

    As some players may have discovered early this morning Atlantic encountered an error. Due to this we were required to restore player data from yesterday to resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience this situation may have caused and appreciate your cooperation and patience, thank you.

  2. Wow! This sure reminds me of days of old when this would happen on a weekly basis! "Sorry you lost all your stuff but we can't do anything about it!"

  4. Yes, now there is even a 3rd node.

    Cal - so should we redo the quest etc. now or wait a few hours? I'm annoyed that yesterday was undone, but I'll be even more ticked if I redo them all today and then find out EA could undo the revert...
     
  7. Rough crash? LOL! A 22 to 23 hour revert is pretty bad! I lost my Cloak of Augmentation as well as loosing a few million from my vendor. Of course it is just a game and these are the risks we take, but I not only lost out on the stuff I lost, but I also bought some really nice items and it will be a pain to find the ones who sold me stuff.

    And to those who will flame me for crying about losing stuff, it is pretty funny until it happens to you.

    Yeah, I just had to redo the quest on 3 characters and lemme tell ya, gathering rare serpent eggs is a pain but not near as much as trying to kill 3 paragon dark wisps just so I could kill a guardian.

    I think the last time we had something like this happen was AOS release. Though not sure if it happened again during my break, But back in the old days it was pretty much like clock work. Stratics doesn't use the model "I'm sure the server will be up soon..." for no reason lol.

    I think you might be right. Wasn't it one of the reasons they did the whole AoS gift thing? Haha.

    Are they saying they fixed the issue and restored to where we were supposed to be this morning? Because I just looked and I have lost everything back to about 3am EST Monday night.

    I noticed it after I logged in on Tuesday morning, but it was an hour or two, so I did not think much of it. Well, nothing yesterday saved at all, and it is still not there (for me).

    Oh and I lost about 30 or so points of skil across 2 chars, over 5 points was imbuing, :(
     
  16. No, they're saying they fixed the issue so hopefully it wont happen again tomorrow.

  18. It does indeed. Yesterday I had 2 cloaks out of 12 nodes, today I have no cloaks out of 18.

    One day long revert in 10 years is not a bad record.

    So in reality you had to do the quest 23 times before seeing a cloak! =) I did it 4 times and that was quite enough for me. i'll wait till it pops up on vendors =)

    I'm really sorry this happened, everybody. Not that I was playing soccer behind the server farm again or anything, but I realize it sucks and felt I should apologize.

    Hopefully, we made the quest fun enough that it is worth doing again. I wish you all luck in winning the best stuff and the houses.

    This is Murphy's law. I just came back to Atlantic and finally did about two hous of farming in Ter Mur underworld.

    Today I first noticed items sold on my Luna vendor were back and then went to check the ingredients I farmed and items I imbued last night, all gone.

    All I can do is laugh it off.

    Everyone knows its just a game, but a game that does take up time from real life. This revert was a horrible failure, that i do think warrants some type of compensation, simply because many players are coming back to the game and may possibly leave again because of the same problems that existed years ago.

    I second that suggestion of compensation. Great lakes got something for the troubles they had, us getting something for the 3 hrs I spent doing new quest and working my new mage/tamer, whom by the way lost all those skill points I gained (working taming is very hard work) would allow me to forget and forgive. Anyone else wanna start a petition?

    Didn't Cats get two Spring Tokens from the Devs when they had thier revert.
     
  30. Weird that other shards get free stuff when they revert but the shard with the most players (hence the most revenue) goes bye-bye we get a hearty "Sorry guys!"

    What is wrong with that picture?

    Hey EA Mythic, my credit card might revert too! LOL!
