Title: Losing eq to fooms after you looted your eq, non pk related
Post by: btown on September 17, 2012, 08:18:40 PM
I am Hyler

I died the other day while doing silvinesti, zone repopped and ended up fighting countless mobs, so i died. We reform quickly move back to zone, all right.

Now we are there my corpse still has not decayed so I looted it, wore it all, proceeded to assist the group, precisely 6 rounds later after loot mud fooms.

Ok now i log back on immediately after and all my eq is gone, basically everything i have played for this wipe and already fought to keep most of. and now its all gone due to mud foom.

I think there should be a way with proof help players like me who get completely screwed for whatever reason the mud fooms.

I sent the log right after it happen to Aristox days ago, maybe hasnt seen yet, or just has the same attitude hoss gave me "that sucks"..

what sucks is you could easily restore peoples eq and you dont.. anyway thanks alot

Hyler

7)  Arctic has a policy of "no reimbursements".  In general we cannot prove
    whether you had the items you claim you did or not.  So the only
    objective solution is to not reimburse anything.  We apologize.

*We can't easily restore a player's equipment, and a player generated log does not provide any proof of action.

The game only saves on the tick.  If didn't tick, you weren't saved wearing it.

Sorry, but this kind of thing has happened to a lot of people (me included in the past).  It sucks, but we have the rule Hoss quoted for a reason.

That sucks Hyler, I sympathize with you - rough times.

What exact eq did you lose to the FOOM incidentally?

Yeah this kind of situation does suck. I've lost an entire set in a similar way, and it is certainly frustrating.

 Heh, I had similiar things happen before and it sucks...but on the same note I have DTed before and the mud foomed seconds later and I came back with full gear.

Seems there should be some solution, if this happen to me again i would most certainly just quit trying.

Basicly what I am saying Rafo.  Would there have been a post complaining about it fooming after someone died before they could CR and after reboot they got their gear back?  I just chalk it up to you get lucky sometimes other times you don't.

The help files mention the "save" command. Would that have helped? If it does help, we can always put the save command into our loot/study scripts.
