Server crashes have been very common for Roblox players over the years. However, something is different this time as players are facing several other issues along with the crash. Players notice a huge drop in the number of players.
Users are taking the situation to social media platforms like Twitter to express their feelings and share more information about the situation. Not only has the number of players decreased, but there are also several other bugs such as the Roblox chat box, search options and many other facilities in the game that are not working optimally.
The online platform has received many complaints since the power outage and has tried to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
A secret Roblox update caused a massive crash
It was observed that there was a secret update that caused a massive crash in the gaming platform. While players are taking the situation to social media, many claim the bug started when the community removed the ability to disable weight animation.
As a result, there have been many bugs in a number of titles that have caused players to experience errors while opening the platform. This has become a leading innovation in the gaming world. As of now, Roblox Corporation has not commented on the situation.
Large drop in the number of players after the power cut
Several individuals were unable to log into their accounts as the website displayed errors even after entering the correct passwords. Many games also failed to launch and users saw a pop-up message showing “Error” (as shown in the image below) every time they tried to launch the game.
Most of them were kicked off the server, which led to a huge drop in the number of players on the online gaming platform. The numbers dropped on a very large scale from 6.9 million users to 61,000.
Other issues faced by players
Roblox Corporation faced a huge backlash from players via social media. Individuals expressed anger and frustration over the server crash and other issues they are facing. Players tweeted that this has become very common for them and they have experienced it a few times in a year.
Many also believed that they were either hacked or banned from the community as they were unable to log into their accounts. Apart from the drop in the number of players, there were also other problems that plagued them, such as not being able to chat and search for anything.
As there is no official statement from the makers, it is expected that the issue will be resolved within a day or two. Therefore, players have no choice but to be patient and wait for the developers to fix the bug.
