I thought this was the best MMO of the history, not even a month and gw2 is already full of bots, hackers and new problems everyday, maybe thats why is a B2P and why people will keep playing P2P MMOs. be ready for huge population drop in a few days with MoP.

B2P, no monthly sub. You can't expect the same level of customer support as in other titles. Remember in the end all you lost was a little bit of time and some pixels. GW2 is all about having fun and not acquiring items or progression, right?

Over $1300 for WoW subscription the last several years is not worth the support I got out of them. I know one time I spent over an hour in queue on the phone trying to get my account back, and that was just one episode.

You are right, it is about having fun and I think once the dust settles the support will be fine at ArenaNet. Currently they may be a bit busy! :)

 

Well they've already said they can't do anything for the people that lost progress so its not a matter of busy in this case but a matter of inability.

Meh, which leads me back to wanting my $1300 back. It is like insurance. Here Blizzard, in case shit happens, I will pay you a sub fee. 

But yes, in this case though, inability has nothing really to do with the lack of customer support, it is just something that can't be fixed in the system. 

Yeah and I find that more than a bit of an absurd issue in an modern AAA title. Espeically when even games several years old have backups in place to prevent this kind of issue (even totally FTP games, so subscription based gaming has fuck all do with it).

In fact the last game I remember personally seeing rollbacks in was shadowbane. And even then that was after it had been FTP for over a year and was not in the best of shape.

None of those game offer any, er, roll forward for items or xp. Some did offer 2 times xp for the entire server.

Right. Everything new with 8-year-old technology is excusable. Maybe someone should re-market pong.

You know I never did and honestly don't remember ever seeing a thread made about it here in all the time I've been kicking around this site.

And in other sub games if you lost something important to you in that rollback, you were able to have it returned do you as they have logs and restoration  systems in place. ANET and GW2 is not the same. You can not have characters or items restored no matter the cause because they do not have such a system in place in the event of lost data.

The problem isn't that it happened.  The problem is that they can't do anything about it.  How can people have faith they will fix it? They admitted already they can't do a damn thing about it?

Never heard anything of same magnitude in WOW or LOTRO where due to server outage players lost progression and were told 'hey we can't help you..ok thanks and bye'.

[mod edit]

I'll continue to play GW2, and so will anyone else who is a serious PvPer. The scrubs and tryhards will jump to MoP hoping they can get back to "pwning" in a game where gear is 75% of the determining factor in who emerges victorious. All the best to them, don't let the door hit you on the way out imho.

Not sure why you guys seem to think MoP is going to be so damn hot, it's just more of the same old content, with even more dumbing down of the mechanics and gameplay than we saw with Cata.

GW2 has MoP beaten in every possible way in terms of entertainment value.

PS: No, I was not rolled back.

        No we are unable to restore gold. It’s simply not something that we have the tools to do, and the account restoration system that would roll-back the entire account is not yet available. I’m very sorry for the loss, and I know we all look forward to being able to help with these issues in the future.

    Sad, very sad that your programmers would not put this BASIC MMO functionality into the game. There should be a plan in place to help people that get hacked.

You may not be aware, but spawning gold and handing it out like cupcakes — even if “basic MMO functionality” — isn’t good for a game’s economy. If you lose a dollar, the government doesn’t print up and hand you another one — that would cause huge inflation.

To address the issue of hacked account, we soon will be offering account restorations that will “roll back” an account to its pre-compromise state. The issue will be verified, and the hacker will be tracked and and all account involved in the hack will be closed. Then, when the hacked account is rolled back, the gold is not duped and the economy isn’t damaged.

They may not support rollbacks but I remember the servers going down before and when it came back up it was rolled back a few minutes.  Not that I minded though since it rolled back after I opened like 90 unidentified dyes and didnt get black or abyss...I got it after the rollback though on my 2nd try at using them! @_@

It is as if what ever i did before last client crash didn't count.

this is a long shot - but maybe the gw2.dat file got corrupted?

could try renaming that file and redownloading it again,    wouldnt hurt

An intelligent response, no matter how much a long shot, is quite refreshing to read.

If those databases and SQL transaction files were located in a SAN each associated with their own spindles, and the servers were set up with RAID 10, it's probably much less likely to happen. Short of site damage to fire or flood or some such disaster.

You want a reduced rate game, you are going to experience cut corners.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

LOL! Oh you dirty sploiter you.

Off topic but speaking of sploiters my toon is currently standing in the newbie human zone on Jade Quarry watching a ranger named Olistair teleport hack all over the area. Sad days.

MoP is a steaming load of shit, have fun with that.

Serious PvPers play popular and developed E-sport games for the fame and money.  GW2's Structured PvP does not qualify as a such, yet.

That is not an intelligent response. It's an attempt to be helpful, but it has nothing to do with anything. You don't understand this. All info on character progression is server-side. It doesn't matter if your gpu melts a hole to china, it won't reset your position in the game.

no one in my guild lost anything and no one I talk to has so far.. I played till about midnight EST last night all progress is here... does suck for anyone that lost some stuff.. luckily this isn't a game based on trying to get .0001% epic drops of mobs though i would be pretty angry if i lost a rare raid drop piece from another game.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

no one in my guild lost anything and no one I talk to has so far.. I played till about midnight EST last night all progress is here... does suck for anyone that lost some stuff.. luckily this isn't a game based on trying to get .0001% epic drops of mobs though i would be pretty angry if i lost a rare raid drop piece from another game.

Probably because it only impacted one database.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

Server rollbacks happened to me many times - especially when a new mmo launches and the server crashes

EQ2 i still see it happen like twice a year, but not sure of the causes

 

whats different is that usually the rollback is server based  (a specific server crashes)

but for GW2 -- seems like a global effect

There are several topics about this on official forums. Two have been locked and third one is on Bug section. However,  there are plenty of rare skins in GW2 and chances are i won't get mine back. Also rare dyes are called rare for a reason. Some players lost those too.

It is not about the stats but some very cool looking skins which disappeared from my inventory. 2 to 3 gold is a pain to make at at mid levels especially if you are crafter and that is also gone for many.
