I have had 5 people alone in the group I play with lose their character. I lost my level 25 with 380k yesterday afternoon when someone shot me my screen went black and my ps3 froze. I restarted it and have tried every trick in the book to try and get my character to appear and be able to play but all it does now is sends me straight into the create a new character screen. I sent rockstar a message over 30 hours ago and have not heard a response from them which is expected with the amount of people sending in tickets.

The thing that gets under my skin is losing my character I can understand everything else, but no game that is being backed by a great company like R* should have character erasing bugs in their game. There are also reports of people losing their single player story line due to corruption from joining online through story mode. I have vowed not to make another character until they fix this mess because I do not want to poor hours into my guy only to lose him again. I am still hoping that rockstar will have all the data backed up somewhere and will be able to restore peoples characters.

This 1 million times.
First few days i lost maybe 5-6 characters, it all cooled down when I stopped playing Online for awhile, started again created new char been playing ever since and today I lose my character.
-_-

As you said no game backed by R* should have character erasing bugs, I'm simply not going to play GTAV Online anymore until they solved this and a possible compensation of my most recent character returned or a starter kit to get me going again, and a god damn skippable tutorial the amount of people that have lost their characters is ridiculous and no MMO I have played I have experienced such a thing, ok there's some problems joining missions etc I can get over but character's being erased? they seem to be stored in the cloud too so we have no control over our save data.

My most recent character was only level 14 and I hadn't purchased any properties but had 16 hour game time and I was on my way to saving for a house, I would hate to be level 20+ and have this happen, I'm gonna warn my friends to sit out on GTA Online because clearly the character erasing bugs have not been resolved, say I'm whining but I'm going back to PC Gaming lol

Damn, I even bought I mic for this game to talk with my friends lmao.

There's so much ignorance about enterprise systems, which this is. You wish it was just servers... To flex any amount of system of this scale it's not of course just plugging in a server and connecting it to the Network. Ducky Ho is right.

Even as they found out about the increased in Sales beyond what they expected...there was much to do and not that much time to do it in. Is it worth the angst of retooling an entire datacenter for a few weeks high traffic?

Don't get me wrong, if they change the paradigm and expect long term success then of course they would make a business decision to grow the infrastructure. If you try to buy right now from 7 different vendors you will get eaten alive price wise. That's the real world. Technology companies can and will burn through cash like they Stole it...game reference tongue.gif

- Network Core - Can it handle the traffic between all targets, also redundancy. Also a note - Spanning tree bulletproof? (you don't wanna know the horror when this fails), Vlans setup. ILO Network
- Firewalls - 1) DMZ Firewalls sizing for concurrent loads. 2) General Purpose Database Firewalls, 3) Financials 4) Login Server Firewalls
- Storage - SAN and NAS sizing
- Databases - Oracle, DB2, *SQL (RAC / clusters, with dedicated Cluster networks GigE or Infiniband),
- Servers - Linux, Windows, ESX, O/S considerations
- Middle Tier - App Servers, redundancy, NAS, local storage
- Security - IPS / IDS - not that anyone would ever try to hack R* rolleyes.gif Checkpoint is cool but in Israel so support is time based sometimes...
- Datacenter Power and Environmentals (cooling etc), UPS
- Backup & Recovery - Production systems must be backed up somewhere (as well as dev)...otherwise an isolated failure could become catastrophic if there are no Backups.
- Help Desk
- eCommerce - Online in-game Store (firewall, database, separate Vlans etc)...my point is made...
- Carbon based systems - The most important...and sometime the most expensive...people to support these systems.

So even a 25% increase beyond expectations would drive someone to drink. Yes they always engineer in some flex but when that gets blown away when you've already taken a educated SWAG at sizing and ordered machines etc or have them installed, the Vendors start licking their chops, and give you the short-notice pricing...


Welcome to my world.

You don't lose your character permanently, it's just temporary due to it being hosted on the cloud. Rockstar already acknowledged this a while ago and recommended to not create more characters, you just have to wait...

If you can see it on the Social Club website, your characters fine and your console is failing to connect.

Some people are fully losing their characters. You can tell by the complete lack of any stats on their website, I believe. (Going from posts in the GTAForums OGA where people have been getting this pretty much since launch)
