Apparently doing so is the (main? only?) source of directives resetting. Opening new session, when the previous one is not cleaned up, puts the char in an inconsistent state and the directive data can get corrupted. I assume letting the session time out should reduce the risk. In simplest terms, when a zone crashes and players log back in immediately it puts their character in a bad state and removes progress. We are hopeful we've fixed the zone crash we've been seeing recently and are currently working on resolving the issue with characters. http://www.reddit.com/r/Planetside/...rx_for_those_of_you_still_impacted_by/ck8j2zz Why they don't spam this information potentially saving thousands of grind-hours 24/7 on forums, reddit, twitter and in game is lost on me.
