Trion compensates Devilian players for lost progress on the Seadrift server

I am COMPELLED to SHOOT!

There’s nothing quite like logging in over the weekend to play some Devilian, logging out after a little while, and then logging back in… to find all of your progress completely gone. A server restart on Saturday, December 12th resulted in several players on the Seadrift server losing progress with characters rolled back to an earlier state, with no way to directly recover the experience earned, items gained, or quests completed.

Players were promptly informed that the community team was aware of the issue and would be granting compensation to affected players. Since then, regular updates have been given to the community regarding the compensation status. All affected players should have received level-appropriate gear tokens as well as replacements for any marketplace items consumed during the period. Players have also received free Enigma Boxes, Enigma Keys, and Archgemstones based on character level. It’s not good to lose progress, but the community team seems to be working overtime to ensure that players feel compensated for the loss.

NobleNerd Zariarn ThatLanteshGuy  Yep, still happens.  I’ve seen restarts screw things up in other MMOs.  I still recall server crashes and rollbacks in WoW whenever I played it.  It’s rare but not new.  The important part is that they made right and didn’t just tell their customers to get over it.

ThatLanteshGuy Zariarn Likewise.  Nothing your wrote convinces me in the least.   However, it does show that MOP is great at trolling the Trion haters.  That in itself, it the real entertainment.  Good day :)

Damonvile ThatLanteshGuy Zariarn I literally post that I would like to see Trion actually succeed some day and not fuck something up but you ignore that and still go with the “get over it” routine. You crack me up. Thanks for the morning laugh.

ThatLanteshGuy Damonvile Zariarn Who doesn’t feel justified in ranting incessantly about whatever it is they’re ranting about ? It wouldn’t matter what they do in the future, this life long vendetta thing seems to be the norm with people now.

They fucked up a game, they didn’t cause cancer. Get over it.

Zariarn ThatLanteshGuy Actually this news is about Trion not being able to properly do a restart and lost a bunch of supporters data. This is a failure on Trion’s part and their inability (still) to properly manage a title.

And this is why I have stayed away from this title…. anything with Trion labeled in it is just not on my radar anymore.

Zariarn ThatLanteshGuy Well, we’re literally never going to see eye to eye on this one. Nothing you wrote convinces me in the least. But I do hope you continue enjoying their games. Maybe some day they’ll make a game I enjoy. Until then, I’ll find my Trion entertainment in all these MOP articles.

ThatLanteshGuy Zariarn Their operations are fine.  I’m still logging into Trove, RIFT, Defiance, and Devilian just fine. (took a break from ArcheAge)  As a matter of fact, I was given two new mounts and a bunch of free store stuff whenever I logged into RIFT yesterday.  I have 5 classes on TROVE and I haven’t spent a dime on the game.  Yah, this companies antics are terrible!  Woe is the MMO world. /s off
This piece of news is related to their launch, which again, is typical for MMOs.  It’s a rare sight to see any MMO game not have problems.  As many have said before, Trion is best at compensating for the hick-ups when or if they arrive.

Zariarn ThatLanteshGuy I wasn’t even talking about launch problems until you brought it up. I’m still not talking about launch problems. I was commenting on Trion’s operations in general. But hey, if you want to keep going on about something I never mentioned in the first place then knock yourself out dude.
