This is probably the #1 issue I have with the online portion of the game, you spend hours creating your character, gathering supplies, forging equipment, and leveling up, THEN for some inexplicable reason you get booted from the server by the host, and you have to start all over again from the character creation screen.
That’s extremely frustrating. This has happened to me 6 times already, and I’ve never made it past the opening area or past lvl 10 because of this. And this is on the “official” servers mind you.
So basically, the user’s Player Character data NEEDS to be independent from the servers, so you don’t have to recreate & re-level your character every time the host kicks you from a server.
It’s either that or I completely give up on the online aspect of the game.
