I have absolutely no issue with your reasoning and your opinion.
But I do have a little issue with the fact that I've quoted above.
The fact that "Every person who has decided to take the risk has had no issue" does indeed add weight to your theory that the "risk is small".
But until a Dev can actually attest to the issue being fixed, it gives absolutely no insight on any person's individual chance to be affected by the Epic Xp loss bug.
Since we don't know why some are affected, we also don't know why others aren't. For all we know it just may be that all the people that have made the "all ok" posts all shared the same middle initial and that's what protected them.
All it shows is that the issue has not grown. It has not shown that it has decreased in chance.
Until the Devs actually release some real information, we don't really know anything. The only update we had from them is that theybasically have no idea yet why it occurs.
The only other thing we've heard is that they are working on ways to "assist" those "negatively affected by the bug (as opposed to positively affected I suppose)", with no specifics whatsoever. Those affected by the bug are still waiting two months to even hear something about how they will be "helped". In the meantime, they have to basically restart.
So what happened to the promised "assistance"? Was it on it's way to those affected but just banged into another bug?
And why can't the Devs "manually" reapply the XP? Why would that create a problem?
Without any word from the Devs, all it looks like is just really shoddy customer service to most people.
Even to some of the people who have no problems with most aspects of the game.
Time is the only thing you will never get back, once you spend it. And it's limited.
When you lose all those million XP, you lose two kinds of time: the time you SPENT playing the game to acquire the XP, and the time you SPENT earning the money to play for the game.
Now, if the "time is money" old saying is true, how much do you think Turbine is owing to the playerbase that lose all those millions of XP?
Even if you don't earn your own money, you still spend time playing the game. So, this HUGE bug is a big deal to many people, not because of the bug itself, but because Turbine doesn't repay them the lost time (either monetarily, or by giving back the XP).
Cleaning up this thread. If folks wish to continue discussing this bug, they need to stop insulting or fighting with each other. Remember, it's okay to have a different opinion from someone...no need to sling personal attacks and insults.
On the bug itself, if you've visited the Lamannia public preview forums you'll see that our Update 15 Patch 2 Release Notes currently have two fixes aimed at addressing this issue. While it's possible that there might be another way this bug is manifesting itself, these fixes should hopefully take care of most, if not all, of the (relatively) small number of folks being affected by this bug. These fixes won't resolve the issue for those already affected, but should prevent it from happening in the future.
Also considering Fernandos claim that there would be 2 bugfixes this year would mean that, IF you would ever consider giving people back whats lost, it would be NEXT year!
Im uninstalling now and ill keep people posted of this extremely awkward interpretation of service you provide!
It certainly doesn't fit into the broad scope of "don't reincarnate" which is what I've been addressing. At the very most it is a situation of requiring you to do a later reincarnate to add the desired 3d class when the issue gets resolved.
Is it an issue? I suppose so. Is it in the category of those that some are calling "game breaking" -- I don't believe it is.
The 2nd one, could have good repercussions about keeping it from happening. Yet unless something has been posted in the last 5 hours, there has been no "fix" for the people effected by it. As stated, last 5 hours (I've been in a meeting) so I could be wrong on that one at this point.
To use the standard flimsy car analogy: imagine you woke up one day and your car was gone... and the police tells you, a month after the incident, you'll probably get it back in 3 months. If you would be angry about it, clearly you'd be overreacting...
Both terms have negative connotations and are seen as trolling/name calling by Turbine.
The correct spelling without negative connotation is "fanboy" or "fangirl" depending upon the gender of the person you are talking to or about and is allowed by Turbine.
I do not know why you feel it necessary to resort to meanness in this. I looked at every reported reincarnation problem that I could find on the forums and did not find anything from you about you having had a problem.
So, why is it that you are so angry over this issue and exactly what is it that is causing you to claim that I'm lying.
I can understand Wabisuki even if they are wrong about me lying.
But, what is it with you? Why the anger and meanness?
Please provide what you consider to have been a lie so that people can see for themselves.
One small text file. Delete it after a month
Then you can manually fix the tiny number of people who get affected by this bug immediately, and get tons of good press.
Very easy script. One small text file.
Did you even bother to read the post I was quoting and answering?
Here are the key parts unless you missed them:
Maybe if you'd read the whole post you would have seen that I wasn't talking about the epic XP issue. Here it is again:
We are talking about a once per life thing OR something that most often costs money to do. The preposterously small amount of data this represents is hardly going to compare to the cost of LR hearts.
