While gaming with HERO (Get used to the name, bub hehe) and Enchantress and hero's friend Star_Knight, I witnessed a horrible act of malice on Sega's part:
They reset my DC.
See, what happened (And I wonder, has this happened to others???) was that I stood on the Mines Boss transporter waiting for everyone to meet me, but before they did, my screen flashed white, and I got sent directly back to the DC Logo screen, as if someone had hit a reset switch.
And unlike a BSOD, which I evade safely by unplugging the modem cord, this one ate everything I didn't have equipped.
My Chaos-Bringer Rifle Cheech gave me last night...gone. 200K of meseta gone, and my 7 scape dolls I carried with me.
Thankfully (And oddly enough) it didn't take the Inferno Bazooka I had found an hour earlier and put in my bank. Strange that I had yet to save the game, yet it registered that I had a bazooka in my bank vault.
Now, I was online for about 6 hours straight, so maybe they reset my DC because I was taking up server space, who knows. But where in my manual does it say they have the right to snatch me out of a game with my friends, right before we fight a boos no less?
This isn't a flame, I love Sega with all my heart, and have nothing but respect for a company that makes the greatest RPGs in console gaming...BUT this is horrible.
Ahh well, we all have to deal with it, and it's a part of the game, like it or not, right?
Got another C-bringer, cheech?
