Cryptic to fix baseblunder
Oops. A week ago, it seems, the bases of over a hundred Supergroups (guilds) went missing from the Victory server for City of Heroes and City of Villains. Left in their place were barren red grids - meaning that all the items Supergroups had accumulated were gone, not to mention the Prestige points earned by group members. Cryptic and NCSoft blamed the data loss on "hardware malfunction." Today, thankfully, GayGamer reports that the data has not been lost forever. “We’re going through with a fix as of this morning," Cryptic has told affected Supergroups. "Here is what is going to happen when Victory is back up: Affected bases will be restored to the time of 2006-09-29 at 03:00:00 EDT. SG information such as rosters and rent were not affected. Restored bases will find that their prestige will go back to the time above. To help with this each affected SG will receive 1,000 prestige per SG member. We are very sorry for the trouble this has caused. Our folks at Cryptic and NCsoft have been working very hard on this. All options were explored and the action taken here was deemed to be the best solution possible."
