Pythia thread is pointless, the reason you lost your character is because right now there are problems when connecting to the cloud, your characters will return if you just leave it. Don't overwrite a character save.
Thats exactly why this thread is not pointless.
because other people are reporting leaving their slot open for more than 48 ours, ME included, and not getting their characters back.
Thats why I want some statistics to work with, to see if I can make sense of this, and so far, its looking pretty bad for those claiming they get their sh*t back.
I lost a character yesterday, and then went to bed, i slept, i ate, i went to uni, came back.... still missing. even tho the servers where back up and working better than ever
