Your GTA Online characters have not been deleted.

Recommended Posts

Silencer-UK

Pay attention, your characters have not been deleted they are saved on the cloud, when the cloud goes down your character appears to have been deleted but it hasnt trust me i have had this happen a few times now just go and do something else, play something else and try again in a few hours if your character isn't back wait some more he/she will return when the cloud is back up.

 

The only one deleting characters is you when you think it has been deleted and you create a new character over the old one, if you really must play now then create a character in the second slot but be aware if the cloud is down it wont save so you must think of it as a tempory character that will be lost forever.

The issue is not that my char is deleted when this happens.

 

Everytime this happens i wind up a few levels lower (36 rather than 39) and all my properties are reverted to sh*tty garages or Vespucci beach sh*t hole instead of my Main Street High Rise.

 

3 times in 48 hours this has happened explain this please

 

*EDIT*

 

I should note that the game is reverting me back to MY old house - not just some random one or a random garage.

Exactly... have patience. If after a reasonable period of time your character hasn't returned, then panic!

looks like you get set back, so maybe ur progress was saved at 36, but when you continued to level up to 39 cloud servers were down so it didnt save.

So, what if your character is no longer even showing on your social club account? Is that linked to the cloud servers too?

Exactly, id recommend you quitting back to single player frequently to make sure its saved, then go back in to multiplayer.

the cloud went down as you were playing and it didn't save your progress, it reverts to the last save. I've had this happen once

5 Days after launch, and we're still having 1st world problems losing characters? No, Rockstar can't handle this type of sh*t. They were better off with GTA4 style multiplayer, Cause this sh*t is ridiculous and absolutely not acceptable.

You don't have a god damn clue. It is gone from Social club, and everywhere, I have an e-mail from rockstar saying they dont even have a solution at this point. Yes manhy characters are totally gone.

Three of my characters disappeared already.

They're also not visible on the Social Club website. The first and the second disappeared some days ago and I never got them back, the third I created yesterday and today it's gone again.

 

This really sucks, I just want to play online.

If that was true, how you explain the fact that people are able to create new characters and play online with those. If the cloud was really down this would not be possible.

NYC PATROL

I checked on the social club and my rank is 0, no RP. It says I have won 3 races and that I have 0 dollars but earned 621 k somehow. When in reality I only earned like 435k.

It says 0 seconds for time played.

So it's still kind of there? I guess? Really frustrating... :facedesk:

I wish people would stop spewing out this cloud garbage and this shouldn't be pinned because it's just false information.

 

It has nothing to do with the cloud and it's rather simple to figure out.

 

If it says the cloud is down then your character will be back when it is up. We all know this, this isn't news.

 

The game, however, is deleting people's characters and jumping people back a few ranks for no reason. It has nothing to do with the cloud and you can wait all you want but it will never return. There is a glitch/bug in the server that is causing this and it needs to be fixed. It's not cloud related and people need to stop defending rockstar by saying it is.

 

Let's hope this is fixed and our characters are restored soon. At the very least, just fix it so we can be comfortable in knowing that our new characters we create and our properties we buy will be safe.

 

I have no problem waiting patiently but the misinformation about characters missing being cloud related is getting rather annoying.
