    Online multiplayer stat reset

    Myself and 3 other friends bought this game 1 month ago and despite numerous attempts are unable to continue an online multiplayer game without losing all our save data except for the host☹. This seems to be an old issue, is there any fixes planned or is there a work around ? We really enjoy the game and would love to progress without stat resets. For now the game is unplayable online. We have all hosted separate games and invited each other and still the stat resets upon rejoining

    What works for me when I'm the host is to kill my friend, then the host picks the backpack up and gives the contents back to the person who it belongs to (if you want). Worked for me every time. You won't get you stuff or your stats back but the resets on them will stop.

    Thanks for the reply, so when we do rejoin our friends game we won't have level 1 axes and be starting from scrach with no part of map revealed? And all the host has to do is kill everyone and pick up their stuff? Am I missing something here? Is there a fix on the way? Also does this work for non PvP games which is what we play. We're gamers of the older generation having come from blops zombies and helldivers we finally found our game where we can have a few beers and have a lazy game of 7, we reached day 22 and there is no point joining a game that late with feck all. looseing our miners helmets was the last straw and the host doesn't find it much fun constantly building stuff for other players as he's the only one with saved schematics ☹☹🤔☹.

    Kill them. Let them respawn. Give stuff back. You won't get the stuff back that the game deleted but the resets of character stats will stop until you start a new world. If you do start a new world it might happen again. This is a known bug that the team says they are working on.

    The host has to be the one to do this. Or it won't work.

    Hi Wonderpants,

    As Ignoringmywife1 mentioned, this is a bug the team are aware of, and a fix was issued but we are aware it didn't fix it for everyone so the team are continuing to work on this issue.

    Also thank you Ignoringmywife1 for mentioning your workaround. I shall pass this onto the team to make sure they're aware of this as it may be a clue as to what is causing the issue.

    It seems simular to a mini bike issue from a previous patch. Where non host players mini bikes kept dissapearing.

    I believe this is older than the vanishing minibike issue, though that's not to say they couldn't be related. I'll mention the comparison to the team.

    The first time we tried this it didn't work☹,but luckily it was a fresh game so we didn't loose much. We tried it again but with an older game where we previously lost our stuff and joining around day 26 it seems to have worked so far😊with about 3 to 4 successful log ins through out the week. Although it's still a pain in the arse and starting with 70 health and stamina it seems to be working so far.
    This is an insanely glitchy game which regularly crashes but we don't mind too much as long as we don't loose all our stuff
    So thanks again ignoring my wife👍, and thanks Claire for the response👍, hopefully the devs can solve this issue permanently and we can start a fair game on level playing field. I'll continue to keep posts on how we progress in case of another game breaking glitch.

    ☹so started our game last night and 2 other players lost their stats, needless to say it absolutly ruined our game starting at nout on day 49, for some reason I kept my stats 😕and obviously the host. We don't know what went wrong as myself the host and one other player were only playing 2 days previous and everything was fine. Now we feel we have to start again but are disheartened by the fact we can loose all progress at some point essentially breaking the game.🙁 My friend had read that certain avatars/characters have more bugs than others,can anyone confirm this and if so who to avoid, could this be why I've kept my character stats? It might be worth mentioning my daughter started a new game and picked a female avatar(don't know name) when I joined my friends game a day later my avatar had changed to the avatar my daughter picked and seems to have stuck(I normally pick jack).This doesn't bother me I'll play as a 3 legged elephant as long as we can save the game. I know one of my friends played as Clint and he's stats are reset. Help please this game is seriously broke😣

    Hi Wonderpants,

    In the beginning two characters were bugged but this was fixed in the first patch, character should not have an effect on any player now as it is purely cosmetic. I think a lot of issues reported mention the same character as they are some of the more common choices. That being said the team are told about characters when bugs are reported just in case. I have not heard of this issue being related to character choice from the team. Every time you start a game, the game asks you to pick a skin, this skin is then applied to all saves, you can change this back any time from options in the main menu.

    I am sorry this continues to happen for you. Unfortunately before the original fix was issued the team released a comment saying that if it happens once in a save it is likely to happen again. It appears to occur when the save info for a client is not correctly called from a host. A common factor others have mentioned is a gap between playing, the longer the gap, the more likely it'll occur. Have you tried swapping around hosts to a host with a stronger upload speed to see if this helps? while not ideal it may be something that can help while the team works to resolve this issue.

    Thanks Clare, we're starting a fresh game tonight and will further experiment with probable causes,good to know the character selection isn't the problem. Before we start any game we run internet tests to determine the host and have never really had any issues with other games as regards speed but all games differ. We will also continue to use the method suggested above and log in more frequently,fingers crossed😮

    Thank you for your understanding Wonderpants, please let me know how you get on. Hopefully these measures will help reduce and maybe even stop the resets for you. I shall also keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Should anything happen though, please do let me know as I can pass further info onto the team to help them narrow the issue down.

    Clare
