Hey there, I’m the person that lost a ton of progress the other day due to a brief disconnect. (https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/five-days-of-coding-progress-lost/338912)
But I didn’t let that discourage me for long, and I rebuilt my entire project in less than half the time and have been working tirelessly since. However…
Although my project is close to completion, it is progressively becoming more and more difficult to work on due to some of the problems I mentioned in that other thread. When your upload speed is low and your script size is large, your lobby will fail to update and time out your attempts to do so (with no error message to say it has done so, mind you, I only figured this out from watching my network activity in the task manager). I live in the southern US and there aren’t really many good options for fast internet (within my budget), so I have to deal with my 1 (one!) mbps upload speed that often doesn’t even reach 0.5. This extends to saving presets as well, as it will time out your attempts to save should they take too long with no indication, often leading to losing progress despite saving a multitude of times.
I am hopeful that after my experiences before, the dev team has taken note of these issues and they are planning on some kind of solution, and I am aware that a change like that would probably not happen overnight, but I must say it cannot come soon enough!
I’ve been having to use my phone as a hotspot and get upload speed high enough to meet the Workshop’s demands (when it feels like it), but I’ve used up almost all my monthly data at this point, so I worry I may need to put my project on hold, when I feel like I’m already at the home stretch of this nearly two week project.
