Characters do not transfer over to same-hive servers.
- Operating System
- Windows 7
- Operating System Version
- Join a Public 1./3. person server
- Wait until you have a character
- Join another server of the same hive
Happens 100% to everybody I play with. Has been reproduced countless times.
Edit: Some additional information I have found out. It appears that the character transfer does work for official servers.
Me and my friends are having the same problem. I can assure you that we are joining public 1st/3rd person servers. I have a geared character in the north that I can use on the official servers all the time and some community servers, but some random servers will only let me use the other character I apparently have on the coast. For now a solution would be to only play on official servers.
Hello everyone and thank you for the report.
Currently the official public servers have a different hive from the rented public servers. The change has been intentional so the players have an option to play on the purest public hive without server storage resets, pre-made loot camps on the servers and similar.
While I see the good intentions, I really think that this change will mean that these official servers will not get populated enough.
The servers are already divided enough, that dividing it more will only hurt the player base.
that's horrible! There is no clear way to know where your character is and you get a new one for every public server you join. Apparently your new system is not working for rented servers.
You have to either work up a solution for that or revert the changes, cause this is pretty gamebreaking for my whole group right now.
me and my DayZ-playing friends have the same problem. We think it divides the community and gives players less opportunity to build bases on "save" servers. I think, two hives for public and private are enough, we don´t even need three different hives.
@Geez: Did you or some players have any problems with the old system?
this is game breaking for me and my friends as well 2 hives was enough now there's no reason for me to build a base since i can not take it between the two also no reason to rent a server any longer
