this one i have to argue, sorry, there are people who would just submit a support ticket saying 'my lvl 135 got wiped!' just to get a high level character.  Without any proof that you did level your c

Here's my problem with that: Fundamentally, at NO time should a company put it on their playerbase to do things that the company by all rights should be doing.  It's the point behind this that I'

ps4 officiall: on 10/17/2020 i was transferrin to extinction server 995.  I mainly play ragnarok 887.  occasionally i would receive a error message download unsuccessfully ,,that’s freezes my ps4 and i have to restart.  this would make me upload character and i would lose all my equipment.  but whatever.  although yesterday the flailed download error occurred and this time i have no survivor for uploading.  i’ve lost my account this is very upsetting. is there now way to store a character save file for this reason?  can you recover my acct and my imprints , tames are prolly dead.  wth such a waste of time

Before reading see my case, where I lost my character: 
https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/525836-ongoing-server-instability-crashes/&page=104&tab=comments#comment-3019619

Now the question is: why did the employee who recovered the backup, got it well before the last autosave of the game?
if you used one of the last 30 to 40 minutes of autosave my char would still be on this server
it seems like long enough for someone to go to another map with items, and come back later and the items are duplicated as if they never left

I'm just imagining

I lost everything - support was so slow that all my bases, over 250 tames, gear & BPs acquired over 3,000 hours of gameplay decayed before I was offered a chance to set an appointment.  And the first available appointment was 2 months after that.

This. Ticket submitted Sept 28th meet up is Dec 4th. Can't get anything back as I have no screenshots or Proof that I had those items, dinos or boss fights. The only thing they are going to do is level a new toon to 105. Something for you folks to look forward too.

Dear everyone,
As a lover who has played 11228 hours of Ark games, I want to share my opinion with you. It would be great if every player had their own cloud driver to save the character. You can limit an account to upload only one character.
To prevent the role from disappearing, I will create other roles as backup roles. When the character disappears, it takes a lot of time to complete the Genesis task of Tektronix skill again. I believe that if we have this solution, then most participants will only play a role. This can solve the problem of missing characters and reduce the manpower burden for solving the problem.
What do you think of my proposal?
----------------- --------------------------------- -----------------
This is also because my character is lost, and my friend is also lost. This problem caused many players to worry

best wishes,
Dory

I had lost my character, and because I did not have any photo evidence there was nothing they could do to help. I think it would be a great idea to be able to clone yourself however your character cannot do anything and is purely there as a backup - kind of like putting yourself in a Cryo pod. Then the problem of backing up your character is the responsibility of the player.

My tribemate transferred from our Aberration server (739) to our Ragnarok server (91) on official and as he was going about his business (ie putting ingots away, grabbing hazard suits, unpodding his spino, etc.) we hit a lag spike that disconnected both myself and him. We both got the "connection timeout" error message at the main menu, I tried to log back in and got in just fine. However, when he logged back in it wants him to create a new character as if his main character had just gotten erased. But the weird part is that EVERYTHING  he had done since getting back on Ragnarok had been reset. All of his gear he was wearing was back in the vault, his spino was podded up and back in the cryo fridge and the ingots he put in the dedi box were gone.

 

We're worried that his character may be gone for good, has anyone heard anything like this before? Any possible fixes? We've checked both servers and it's not there. He's put a ticket into Wildcard but we have little hope in that, especially this close to the event.

Was running around Ab when the server lagged hard. Got d/c and when I logged back in I was the character creation screen :| i guess rip?

I am sorry that happened to you jayespi.  Some people have had luck trying to log into other servers they have been on before and finding their characters, some of us have not.  Among those of us who lost our characters permanently, a few have reported success in recovering some of their progress with the help of support, but many of us were left to lose everything because the tickets were not responded to in time before all bases, tames and gear decays.  I hope it works out for you - put in a ticket right away and hope you get a responsive GM.  Let us know how it turns out.  Hopefully you will get something back - there are some of us who lost years worth of progress.

Does anyone else lose there character about every 2 weeks or so? 

I do. I have been playing Ark for 8 months now. I love rhis game. The dinos. The building(although electrical lines are the bane of my existence) The game play in general. I love it all. But through it all I can only experience 50% of the game. 

I keep losing my character. A few where antimeshed. Most of the time its after dying. I get the respawn screen. Choose my bed or random respawn. Depending what I need. I go through the revive screen. Only to be put back in as a lvl 1 character. Kicked from my tribe. I lose all engrams, all imprints, all everything. Its like it makes me a random person. There is no character creation screen. It just spawns me in as a new person.

My daughter and I love to play ark together. Its just a shame I can't do alot of the stuff she likes to do. I can't do purple drips on extinction with her. We try and I can't without an imprinted giga. I cant do the Alpha fights that require lvl 100 with her. Most of the time I dont make it there. Its not fun watching her have to do it with other people and not me. She does not like it either. 

So, at this point. Im just her crafting character. No boss fights, no raising dinos. Just gathering what she needs and that's it. You would thing wild card would care. They don't. Put in a few tickets no answer back. I spent over 100 dollars on this game. Something I have never done for a game. I thought it was worth it. Then turned around and bought the game and all maps for my daughter.  So I bought the game twice. I feel like she gets the full version. While I get a free to play beta testing version. 

Thank you wildcard. I will still play your game. Only cause my daughter loves to play with me. She has begged me to keep playing after losing everything so many times. You made an amazing game for the most part. To bad you can't make it a game for everyone.
