Yesterday, I joined a private server and spent hours building up my first base. Today, that server is nowhere to be found. So, I joined an official server and, again, played for several hours to build up a base. Then, suddenly, it started kicking me off within 10 seconds of logging in. I logged in several times, hoping it would work, but this just caused me to lose all my stuff and reset to the desert. At present, I can’t play online at all.
What gives? What are other people doing to play the game successfully without having to start over every couple hours?
