I think i may have left the game just by turning xbox off.. but my game saved to the cloud about 5 minutes prior to me leaving.. so surely that could affect it

Playing in a group, doing races, stuck on load screen forever.

we all closed out of game on ps3.

 

go back in, cloud servers down, come back later, character missing for me but others who also quit out have theirs still there.

 

have not made a new character since

Same. I dashboarded but I was already doing missions etc before getting off. I only dash boarded because the missions weren't working. But then my character dissapeared

nope. maybe on my first character but not the second. although i might have done that once or twice while dying to keep from paying the death fee for BS reasons but i know the last time i left my character before it disappeared i left normally.

 I lost my character by creating a new character in my old character's slot. imo, I would just avoid creating a temp character and wait until the servers are back up.  But if you do, you have to be careful not to create them in your character's slot or you will lose them. At least that's what happened to me.

No to all, character still deleted. I went to single play from online play through the menu and when I went to get back to online it said servers where down. Refreshed till it let me back in and my character was gone.

 

I did dashboard but that was when I was in single play trying to fix the servers where down error (my friends where in a game so I thought it was my connection).

I want to play the game so badly but after hitting level 45 today I don't think I wanna risk it. Might just wait until everything is sorted but how do we know when that will be?

 

We don't...

Same. I even made sure to go to single player mode to exit GTA online to make sure the cloud saved the game. I waited a few minutes after and boom! turned off my system. I always do safe log offs.

I was just about to start a mission. Console froze (right at the point the camera starts to zoom in from above when you begin a mission) so I restarted it. Came back, characters in both slots were gone.

I had a similar situation, i was flying around avoiding ppl because i got a bounty on me. 2 mins before the bounty was over my console froze so i shut it off and came back to a "cloud servers are down" message. Now everytime i try to connect my characters arent even there anymore.

Thanks.

1) I just completed a Gerald mission, and I was in a Loading screen (the one where you view the city from above and Rockstar gives you pictures with tips on it) when the servers died, which meant I was stuck in there forever.  I waited 30 minutes on that loading screen as I went to fix my lunch, around 11 AM Eastern time Saturday October 5.   The pictures even stopped cycling and just stuck on Lester Crest's picture with the tips about calling him for stuff.  It never loaded.  So I dashboarded finally after 30 minutes, as there are no buttons to press to escape the loading screen.

 

2) Nope.  My character was working fine for 2 days, and it was obviously saved.  Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to log out, and come back in the next day.

 

3) No, no temp characters.

I had the same thing happen to me. I closed out properly and everything though. But signed on this morning to a missing Rank 48 character. Did some google search, and apparently,  your xbox just did not connect to the server correctly so it did not recieve the information about your character. I restarted a couple times and WHAM, my character was back.

 

Do not create another character!

You can try every method imaginable, characters WILL still get deleted.

 

It's inevitable.

Calm down, sir. I was merely questioning what decisions people made leading up to their deletion. Clearly it is Rockstars fault but I am just curious about a few things.

To find out if your character is deleted... just check out your profile on the Social Club site and if your character is still there listed as the rank you left it as, your good. If it shows your dude at a Rank 1, imsorry but your starting over ):

What about your char is not showing on Social Club but your money is? Also total earned, total spent, races won, etc.
