Sick of seeing hundreds of the same threads, and the character deletion threads seem to be the worst today. So here we go. Any character deletion questions/stories/rants post them here!

Yes, your character and his sh*t seems to be deleted!? Your ranks!? Apartment!? Oh no!? Well the cloud servers that your character/sh*t is saved to is constantly going up and shutting back down, so it could be that your character/sh*t is saved in the cloud server and when it shuts down you lose it for the time being. When the cloud server is back up, your character/sh*t may be as well. 

You aren't the only one experiencing this, so if you are really that worried or frustrated, you should wait a bit before making an online character/sh*t. The servers are still glitchy, the cloud server is been up and down all day, so yeah. 

Stay tuned here for updates on character deletions and make sure to post and keep this thread updated for everyone as well!

UPDATES:

Rockstar customer support DID say that your characters will come back sooner or later and if not to contact them later. The cloud servers are all scrambled up, and when they are all functional again your character should be there again. Do NOT save over the lost character, at your own risk for making another character. Customer support also said when things are working again and you still have not recovered everything to contact them. But give them time. 

THE PATCH IS ON ITS WAY! HOPEFULLY READY TOMORROW!

Makes sense that people shouldn't panic, because as you mentioned, characters are saved server side.

If anyone has had their character deleted and recovered them, please do tell because I don't think anyone has verified getting a character back after it vanished.

Lol "sick of seeing all these deletion threads" You joined yesterday and what do you do? Start a deletion thread. Maybe with so many of the same thread Rockstar will get the point. But hey since it's "official" you might just get the attention you want.

YES I CAN CONFIRM THIS, I thought my character got deleted for the second time.. however I had made this character in slot 2 and here is the steps I took in order after my character got deleted from restarting my ps3.

 

1. Made a new character in slot 1 (slot2 was my original)

2. couldn't do the first race with new character because of no blue marker

3. I quit GTA 5 and Restarted it and now my new character is gone but my Original character is back!

 

 

UPDATE: Ok I was staring at my characters stats and level in the character selection menu when posting this reply and after clicking on him it went into a new player customization...even though the level and stats were there

...I think you miss the point of this thread man? It's so people can see this thread and only use this thread instead of posting yet another thread of the same topic. It's called organization, something these forums lack. I assure you it's not for attention.

Also post above me allows people to see that it's the cloud servers fault and they will possibly recover their character. It's called sharing information, not attention.

Good cuz the new character I made didn't even end up having a name since it automatically spawned me into a game for a second.

I was lucky enough to make a character that hasn't been deleted yet. Grant it, I didn't play that long

Lost my level 15 character who had an apartment and 25k. So annoyed right now because I don't know whether I'm going to get it back or not seeing as no one 100% knows what's going on

Thought mine was bad! Just leave that save slot and use another one! I sure Rockstar have noticed this and will fix it!

Well the good news for me is accessing multiplayer is fine and a lot better, there are still bugs though. The bad news is i lost my previous character, it doesn't matter though since I had no real progression on him since I couldn't pass the first mission. But I made another and got to rank 2. The weird part is i never went through the tutorial i fell from the sky near the vinewood sign and free roam from then on. I noticed though that I was limited to doing things. I couldn't do any jobs for instance. I later decided to try and see if going back out and in would fix this. I ended up then doing the tutorial in which I was stuck at the launching session screen. I turned off my ps3 then when I came back on my character i had then disappeared. Just amazing.

It just happened to me. Apparently it's because we cant connect to the cloud servers. Hopefully they saved and can be restored once we are able to connect to cloud. Don't feel reluctant to make new characters. They said it was "temporary" anyway.

Surely the people who spent real money on the game to buy in game cash are losing that? Surely Rockstar should be taking this thing extremely seriously seeing as this could be people real life money going to waste..

I'm seriously trying to keep back my anger but the amount of problems in this game are just unbelievable.

Well, It happened to me as well but I actually took the time to read those pop ups that "the gaming session couldn't connect to rockstar cloud and therefore no progress will be saved messages" or along those lines...

 

Like grinding for money atm (at least on PS3) would be nothing but stupid. Just play a few races or w/e, the servers are messed up so don't really put time and effort into something you'll be sad see go missing.

Nope. You can risk it and play, or wait till it's all better. You might not even lose your character, but then again, you could.

I just did a team deathmatch thing and then the game crashed for all 4 of us, i rebooted the game, ran to the store (IRL), and when i got back i booted up online only to see that my character was gone (3rd time today, ive lost like 20 levels already :p), Im pretty sure the money sticks to the account no matter what tho.

 

But i wont be buying any appartments, cars or buying cash cards until this is fixed tho,

 

And for the record, i have had no popups saying that ive lost connection to the cloud server while playing, i only realize it if i reboot the game, then i cant find my chars
