Career progress reset

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

For the second time in two weeks I get the message "We found a discrepancy between a local save and Racenet on your career progress and are resetting you current championship" and all my career progress has been wiped away.

I have read that this issue is reported by many players on many forums for a very long time, so I am suprised that a fix has not been made to this issue. as it basically makes career mode inoperative

Can you please have a look at it?

 

Platform: Steam/PC, Windows 10, Thrustmaster T300 with pedals and shifter

Hey and welcome to the forums! 🙂 

I doubt there is much anyone can do about this with the information you've provided. The message you got kind of said everything there is to say. Have you noticed your internet cut off, or RaceNet being down when these issues come up?

No it really did not. It did not say why a discrepancy between local save and Racenet results in the entire championship being reset. It did not say why Codemasters have still not fixed this game-breaking issue which has been known since launch day if not before. It did not say why Racenet connection even is a thing in SINGLE PLAYER career championship. It did not say why Racenet remains very unstable and unreliable despite CM increasing their games' reliance on it.

Racenet was very slow all week and then pretty much died on the weekend. Regardless, Racenet going down or your internet being cut off should not result in losing progress in races you already completed, that simply should never happen in a million years. Codemasters absolutely need to implement some kind of failsafe to prevent progress being lost, astonishing that they haven't already done that months ago.

It's a mystery to me how it's possible because probably nobody will buy any new game from CM.

Ya im going to have to just move on from this game, Im not sure why they are struggling so much with this release. Seems like the trend to put out a cash grab of a half finished game and just move on to the next title.

This happens to me practically every day. And my Season 3 and 4 DLC does not show up....heck, I tried to play tonight, and all it did was crash as soon as i tried to do a daily a couple times..I said screw it and fired up Project Cars 2. At least that is a game I can finish races in

I have problems too. I am trying to reset my career tier back to open but every time I perform the reset it says "There is a discrepancy between local data and racenet" and it stays in Pro. I want to reset it to Open but I want to keep all my cars and upgrades. Are you experiencing the same thing ?

Well I may be late to the party, but anyhow.   This is still a problem with this game.  It's why I just quit playing and uninstalled this abomination last year.  As much as I enjoy the gameplay and driving in this game, they have just ruined this with the sorry racenet integration.  This is what you get when yet another company decides to jump on the, "Games as a service" bandwagon.  I am sincerely hoping that when Dirt 5 releases with the new consoles this year, that Codemasters doesn't repeat the same mistakes with that one.  I'm praying, I'm begging you Codemasters, please don't ruin this franchise.  Just to add,  I uninstalled this late last year after losing my career progress for about the 5th or 6th time.  About a week ago I saw footage of this game on a YT video and thought, you know what, I miss this game.  And I am going to reinstall it since I have it through Game Pass for PC anyway.  So I did.  Thinking, well it's been several months, maybe some of these bugs have been worked out.  But alas, No.  The same ****.  I have already lost my progress in both Rally, and Rallycross once in each discipline.  No reason that I can point to either.  After spending several hours doing Rally runs, then I decide to quit out to take a break, and I get the dreaded, "discrepancy between local and cloud saves, resetting career progress" message.  And sure enough, the next day, I do Rallycross for a couple hours and the same thing.  Quit to the menu and lost all my progress.  I've given up on trying to play the Rally discipline, because I refuse to keep replaying the same thing over and over.  I really enjoy the Rallycross, even though it is repetitive, I don't mind it as much.  Since a big part of RX is learning the course and perfecting your lines, etc.  I'm going to give this game one more try, and see what happens.  But this is a shame, this could have all been avoided, if Codemasters didn't try to turn this into some live service garbage.  It is just unnecessary for a single player campaign.  I'm fine with having online functionality for record keeping, multiplayer, etc...  But I just want to progress through the career, I don't care about having my lap times saved online.  Why can we not opt out of this??  It's just pointless.
