Recommended Posts

Thanks for the useful topic.

Hopefully it will stop the mass amount of these kind of issue-related topics.

Just a random question, but mastery tests seemed to be missing here and there. We arent going to get banned if we advance a level of mastery without taking the test are we? ;-;

 

 

Also, you have the best profile picture ever. do want.

Thank you so much for making this.

 

I submitted a ticket for "I bought the wrong item."

There's some disinformation floating around about what will get you banned. Modifying your account or the Warframe Client with external tools will result in a ban. Bugs within the game will not flag your account to be banned, and if they somehow do, our support staff will manually investigate the issue on your behalf.

Well in truth I was clicking too fast and bought a 2nd set of Kunai while I was trying to quickly change my loadout for a void misison. I've had the Kunai already at lvl 30 for weeks before this happened so clearly I didn't need a new unleveled set.

 

Thanks again for letting us know about these. Just gotta wait to hear back from support now. I hope it's soon. That extra Kunai took up my last available weapons slot.

I want to apologize here, but I'm a big stickler for the rules, and I don't think it's fair to other people to solve a ticket first because it was mentioned on the forums. I can assure you however that if you sell the extra Kunai to free up inventory space, we can still properly track it and refund your platinum when we finally do reach your ticket.

Sweeeet. thank you kindly. I have ZERO issue waiting my turn in the que. But that is a sweet little nugget of a suggestion you gave there.

 

Much and many thanks!!

Some of the items in my inventory are missing such as my Phoenix Ember Helmet Blueprint and a Forma Blueprint.  

 

You'll want to create a support ticket and we'll be able to restore your items for you. Unfortunately there's currently a large number of support requests so it may be some time before your issue can be resolved.

...

"My game crashed during a mission." & "Failed to save progress. Data was not saved."

This is unfortunately something Support cannot help with. When these occur, there's no record of your mission for us to investigate, so we're unable to restore the lost items. We're constantly working to solve these issues as they pop up, so we ask you to be patient with us while we work to improve Warframe.

...

 

I have run into this problem twice now (once for Reaper Prime Blade and once for Paris Prime Blueprint). It is insanely frustrating, as it has primarily popped up for tough to get items (void tier 3 with low drop chance). I understand that there isn't much you guys can do as support, but maybe you can put a bug in the devs' ear on this one. I assume they know what the cause of this is (some missing asset, if I remember the hotfix note correctly). An automated test that verifies the integrity of reward data would go a long ways toward preventing this issue from popping up a third time.

 

(note that my support cases for these two were resolved)

Hi,

 

    Was directed here by DERebecca's link from this thread: https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/85093-unacceptable-game-support/page-7 I have 2 enquiries that I'll like to make:

 

Firstly, what's the DE policy when a player pick up an item but can't complete mission / force to abort due to bug? Most of the other game are simpler as normally any item pick up by player are consider theirs, But in Warframe, player must also successfully clear the mission to claim the item. I've send a ticket regarding this issue (force to give up the same item twice) with bugs detail with screen shots and ask if my item can be replace under this circumstance. I put it under bug report as I don't think it fit under missing item at that time. Unfortunately after 8 days of waiting, I only receive a message say that the DEV are aware of the bugs and thanks me for informing them. I've send a second ticket but put it under item missing this time hopefully to get a better answer. Since I don't how long I need to wait for the reply, I hope that at least I can hear it from you here. 

 

Secondly, it's about the game crashed during a mission and failed to save progress, data was not saved issue. I suffer from both issues before but fortunately didn't lost anything major (at least not something I'm aware of). Most of the time I'm not even aware that data was not saved until I realize the weapons I leveled during mission are revert back to the state before the mission. Are there anything for the players to do in these cases (ee.log?) or are there any plan for DE to improve upon it? Or are we really screwed when it happen?

 

Thanks for your time to read this.

 

Cheers

If I may ask, can you get refunds on items that you dont like? 

like  I bought a skin pack Fire~  I didn't like it, could I still ask for a refund?

The red text problem or issue is the main problem for Warframe. Not only will it hang up but also will suck your internet dry (preferred to be called as 'Game Leech Bug'),

 

And I sent a ticket due to the fact that I built a nova chassis before but it was not in my inventory, then I build another one yesterday and still nothing. Can I get my Nova Chassis from the DE? I wasted mats and time to build it and just to get nothing by the time I claimed it.

There's one last issue I want to cover here. It can be common since our game is still in Beta, but unfortunately it's one we can't offer much support for.

"My game crashed during a mission." & "Failed to save progress. Data was not saved."

This is unfortunately something Support cannot help with. When these occur, there's no record of your mission for us to investigate, so we're unable to restore the lost items. We're constantly working to solve these issues as they pop up, so we ask you to be patient with us while we work to improve Warframe.

 

Well it started occurring since the drone event.

Haven't really used a forum for help before but I'm out of options and maybe support can help, even though I'm not sure. My problem is that I get really bad lag when I shouldn't, and I know this sounds like a common issue, but I tried everything.

 

My ports are correctly opened, I verified my game's cache through Steam, my internet is 80 download and 30 upload, I'm currently running a Haswell (Intel CPU) and there is nothing else running on my computer that would slow me down, and my ping settings are set low enough where the people I join a game with shouldn't be giving me lag issues.

 

Furthermore, I play with one of my friends from Canada a lot -and I know he has a good connection- but I get terrible lag to the point where I am invisible, can revive players from across the map, enemies don't die/glitch all over the screen, and items drop super slow or just hang in the air.

 

I have some of it recorded I think, any suggestions on things I missed while troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated, or if I need to be redirected to another part of the forums.

 

Thanks!

My apologies for not responding to all of you sooner, resulting in this Frankenstein post.

Firstly, what's the DE policy when a player pick up an item but can't complete mission / force to abort due to bug? Most of the other game are simpler as normally any item pick up by player are consider theirs, But in Warframe, player must also successfully clear the mission to claim the item.

Unfortunately, since the mission isn't completed, the items aren't sent to your inventory. When a bug or crash causes a mission to be incomplete, our priority is to solve the core issue, but usually we're unable to retroactively replace items lost once we've corrected it. Without mission completion, there's no record of the items ever being in your inventory, which gives us nothing to work with during an investigation to restore the items (since the item was never really "there" in the first place).

For your second question, If you find yourself the victim of a "Failed to save progress. Data was not saved.", the more information you can provide in your ticket the better. Screenshots, your log, and the names of the players you were with can all help corroborate your claim. However, there's still a good possibility we won't be able return lost goods when this problem occurs; it's very difficult to verify these claims and our policy isn't to automatically honour them, as it would quickly degrade into people just passing around screenshots of finding forma blueprints and saying it failed to save progress.

I'd like to point out though that this isn't an intended feature of our game. We're constantly trying to fix crashes and the dreaded "Failed to save progress. Data was not saved".

 

If I may ask, can you get refunds on items that you dont like? 

like  I bought a skin pack Fire~  I didn't like it, could I still ask for a refund?

 Definitely open a Support Ticket and we can look into getting your purchase refunded.

 

And I sent a ticket due to the fact that I built a nova chassis before but it was not in my inventory, then I build another one yesterday and still nothing. Can I get my Nova Chassis from the DE? I wasted mats and time to build it and just to get nothing by the time I claimed it.

 It may be a wait until support can process your request, but we'll add the Nova Chassis to your inventory.

Thanks!

You'll also want to contact Support, so we can assist you in troubleshooting your issues.

Are there any plans to integrate the first 3 common issues into the game itself?

A refund system may save a large chunk of time for both the Support team and the players.

Items bought & unused could be returned within a short amount of time, same for items that were sold recently.
