For everybody who paid for their DP's in RL $$$ and planning to quit can we all vote to have our RL $$$ refunded so we can leave miserably?? Much is lost here...good cash comes in the game and poor investment (i.e. hardware) causing this shitty down...talk about business..:|
Lost 2 levels, over 50 points, another 5 nerve gone, a DP which I had gotten for those damned points is gone... And a SHITLOAD of money. Not to mention I've lost a number of morphines and of the crime experience I lost, only a portion should be returned to me.
Most importantly is the fact that all the work I had done to get the bloody money to buy DPs and overpriced points for a stupid Gas Can is gone. Yay, thanks for messing up.
There's NO way you can say you're not to blame. You personally should have manually checked those back-ups occasionally. It's something PROFESSIONAL game admins and developers do. Relying on a third party such as a host not to mess up is risky as hell.
One thing I've learn is that in a company, different tasks must be seperated from each other. One does the developing, one does the hosting, one does the controlling. You left the controlling to the same party which did the hosting. You run a high risk when you do so, and now look what happened. >_>
Now, may I advise you to add a "delete account" option, if you haven't done so already? I'm seriously considering to quit right now, and to be honest, I don't want to risk being used as a money farm for happy muggers. >_>
In case you were too lazy to read this post, a quick summary: GET YOUR ACT UP. >_<
There's a limit to what you can get away with by apologising and making promises for the future. I love TC to little bits, but that doesn't mean I can stand such elementary mistakes. >_<
I might stay if most of the damage can be repaired, but to be honest, I don't think I can be bothered to restart gathering money to buy new points and DPs all over again for the Gas Can. I've been sitting at Sweet Store robberies for ages now because the only truly good next crime is an arson crime, and when I finally came nearer to grabbing the damned Gas Can, TC gets messed up.:|
i wasnt set back a month, i was sent back to the dark ages!
I lost my house (i have a shack now pfff)

if you can reinstate all of the things i have missed out on, and give me back my months worth of hard earned stats, ranks, levels and money, i will continue to play.
if not, i'm outta here, i feel really let down
Woooo, the animosity abounds up in here.
Stuff happens, people move on, blah-bleh-blah.
It's been a good game, and a few whiners aren't going to be the downfall of Ched's bank account.
The only thing of substance I have to add is this... the part of the announcement that reads "This is entirely the host's fault for not checking them" is utter garbage and Ched.. you're weak for even thinking it.
Damn kid, if there's a problem with your host, that's between you and them... you gotta own your problems when it comes to customers.
i lost it all. 480 busts, my jailtimes are about ten times what they should be, my mansion is gone, my 3 million dollars is gone, my donator status was gone, over 85% of my crimes apparently never took place anymore, and i just got arrested for stealing a tanktop. i was selling drugs and doing virus crimes before this happened. hard pill to swallow here chedburn. real hard. i worked for nothing. my game is ruined.
Well i only lost 4k or so in stats.. So im not too stressed about that.. losing 4 levels was a bit of a downfall..i knew i would lost a couple..but ehh... being 500 days old tommorow and only level 16 is kinda depressing. Oh well. At least i kinda have good stats for my level now? Im not quitting TC. Mainly cause i have nothing better to do with my online time.. And because what doesnt kill us makes us stronger.. and is TC not back and running yet again?
If as you wrote above my items, pets etc are safe do i have stats as i had a month ago not only have i lost 4 levels but my freakign stats are now shit again..... my pets are gone and thats just at a first look... Good way to run a business... b/c after all thats what this is...
If the apologies are sincere would the site owners be forthcoming and provide players with the option to have all DP donations made since they started playing the game repaid to them to give them the option of quitting?
It would seem the least they could offer.
Every night we are shown a screen saying nightly backups are being taken. Obviously not so.
We are then told by staff members on this very page stats are safe. Again not true.
It then says "some" players will be affected. Which begs the question who was unaffected?
Backups should recover each player to the exact same point. Again not so the game has been brought back on-line in a totally inconsistent state.
If we cannot trust the service we are buying into can we not all have the option of having our money back?
PS Looking at my stats these have not been recovered by any backup process. These have been accounted for in some other way.
This is a pretty disgusting state of affairs for a commercial site. If I''d have done this in work I could expect to be shown the door.
It's no fun to lose crime exp, money, merits, levels and have your (extremely long) education courses reset. I'll admit, I'm not happy about it, but insulting people or crying about it doesn't help anyone. If you're really too upset about it, leave the game. We don't need people like you.
I just want to thank Chedburn (and others) again for creating this game and giving us something to waste our time on.
I'm still looking forward to the promised updates.
This is a Joke. TC is total and utter CRAP. What if you sell your items in the last month, which means they are now not in your items now. yet you do not have the money for them, as money is from 1 month ago....
This cannot be recoverable. you should either go all from 1 month ago. not mix and match.
I now believe TC cannot run a web based game, their systems are crap and backup proceedures even crapper.
Try a better game, lots of them out there, namely Jockwars and Mono Country. I belive these games backup properly and will not screw you as TC have done here
YAY TCs back and running Way To Go Ched You Rock.. Raid 0/1 is hell betta at least you wont have this error happen again and if it does you can restore it... can everyone bear in mind that is was not Chedburns fault this error occured it was a Hardware Failure.. thanks
