Please to not spread misinformation. Prior to this incident (starting mid December), all data loss reports we received ended up being due to developers misusing data stores.
- Returning ProductPurchaseDecision.PurchaseGranted before record of the purchase was successfully saved to data stores
- Overwriting player data without checking that data had properly loaded
That is not to say that data stores are fine. We know there is a ton of room for improvement. I just want to be clear that data stores data loss is not something we have previously had problems with. We are still actively investigating this latest issue and trying to determine a root cause. If you have specific information that can help us narrow down the issue, please let us know.
