I have been very patient while Rockstar works on Online. But come on now.

 

This morning, I decided to fire up the game for a bit, and guess what? My character has -- once again -- been deleted. This is the THIRD time this has happened. It seems to occur as soon as I shut down the game and try to boot it back up. I spent four hours increasing my rank on Wednesday, only to have it deleted when I started playing yesterday. I played for a few hours, shut everything down ... and now I start it up again and everything is gone AGAIN. And now it doesn't even show my crew affiliation ... I HAVE MY OWN CREW. 

 

Is anyone else having this problem? Surely, I can't be doing anything wrong. I'm just quitting the game and starting it back up again.

PSN? If so, they are having all sorts of problems. You get what you pay for :/

 

I'm on XBL and I have had no problems and neither have any of my friends.

XBL is plagued with problems too OP. It's not the network, its the developer.

Looks like rockstar is deleting 50% of all accounts that the servers are stable.

My Character is working fine.

On 360, the only issue I've had (and damn, is it consistent) is losing my cars.
I've lo-jacked and insured three different cars and - within about a half hour of each one - I lose it completely. Not impounded, not destroyed, the insurance company number has been removed to my phone - gone.

One of my commissioners has lost the $400,000 apartment twice and finally settled for one of the low $100,000 ones (he purchased money in the first hour, before it was taken down).

It "lost" my character at one point - I just restarted the console, came back, and my character was there again.

I just wish R* would f*cking acknowledged us already and tell us IF we will get our characters back if we wait, or just tell us straight that they're gone and that it's safe to start a new character.

 

Otherwise I can't be bothered making a new character in the event that my original character comes back, that and I'm still paranoid making a new character will ultimately lead to it being deleted again.

 

Seriously, what is R*'s PR team doing? Their twitter feed is dead. Stop ignoring us!

Of course you're not the only one. Lots of people have this problem. 3 characters are gone just like yours.

I'm guessing this is mostly a PS3 exclusive feature.

I've been playing since an hour after the launch so I made it past the initial strange glitched hurdles that caused many to be stuck.

There's an options when trying to join from singleplayer that says R* cloud services are down, press A to play without saving or X to retry.

are you positive you didn't accidentally enter a session that it warned you wouldn't be saved?

Feel sorry for all you guys who've been struggling to get on or those that are losing their characters! I'm on XBL myself and haven't had any problems at all.

Here's an update.

 

I started over and for the past two days, I've had no problems. As of 6:30 this evening, I was up to rank 22 and had $545,000. I turn off the system, then switch it back on an hour and a half later, and my character is completely gone. Reset again and the character and rank aren't there, but the money is back. So now I'm not playing it anymore, because I don't want to go through the whole thing again.

 

This is madness. I don't mind that they're having problems. I just wish they would tell us what they plan to do when they fix it.

They aren't being deleted. You're overwriting them.

Nope, I wasn't. Today I had a little problem, lost like two levels and some purchases, but nothing major like people are saying. Then again, i'm probably one of those lucky ones.

Stop making new characters.

So ... the fact that they're completely gone when I log in doesn't mean they're deleted? After all, since I can make FIVE different characters, creating a new one shouldn't affect the others.

But regardless, this last time, I didn't create a new one. I simply quit. In order words, I didn't make a new character. So what do I do? Just deal with it until I hear an okay from Rockstar, while my friends all rank up to 50 and leave me behind? I heard from Rockstar and they simply sent me a link to the information about the patch, which didn't fix my problem.

 

So I guess I just wait until ... well, when? No one can tell me. Can you, since you have such great advice about not creating a new character? You're saying that I'm overwriting the character, so how do I get the old one back since this time I'm just sitting here not playing to ensure that doesn't happen? 

 

And why is my money from the old character intact but not the ranking?

There are more issues, and it is more common on PS3 though, i second that one I have one character that's level 36, and level 10 bought a 400,000 dollar apartment, have 300,000 dollars right now and I have not lost one thing in my game.

 

Neither have my friend's except 2, and 1 already got all the crap back.

Why do you give a sh*t if your friends are a higher rank, you can still play with them. Stop killing yourself over this sh*t and wait it out for god sake.
