The next login attempt, I received a delta or mike error while attempting to login, so I reset the game, and then my character is gone. I hard reset the X1 to clear the cache, but to no avail. I had 150 hours into that character. This is totally unacceptable.”

Ubisoft was quick to recognise the issue, and tweeted to say they were looking to it.

Soon after, Ubisoft put out a statement. “Our team has identified and fixed the source of this issue to ensure that your characters could be correctly restored,” Yannick Banchereau, community manager for Ubisoft, posted on the official forums. “The issue was caused by a malfunctioning server that couldn’t synchronize character data correctly and corrupted them instead. The game client was unable to read this corrupted data, and simply assumed that the character didn’t exist.”

Please note however that in order to make your character available, we will need to restore the latest uncorrupted save of your entire account, which happened during the server maintenance of April 12. In other words, your character will be back just as you left it on April 12 at 9am CEST | 3am EDT | 12am PDT.
