    Also I thought the game froze on the title screen, not on the lobby if you continued playing?

    If you replace it with a backup from before you saw the octoling. Then apparently yes. But i'm guessing like 90% of people didnt have a backup because it wasnt necessary before this whole fiasco. I don't have a backup myself, just the data in my system memory.

    If you had the hindsight to have a backup save on you, yes. But far from everyone is "paranoid" enough to do that. And even if OP did do that (which I'm doubting, considering how their "defense" post didn't even bring that up), that still doesn't explain the utter lack of other people that should've experienced this problem.

    No, he said the lobby in the first place.

    Yeah, he didn't say if he fixed it or how he fixed it...

    Well, all i know is, i won't have a phone with me and i'm not going to bother with details. I'm just going to worry about saving all my progress and fixing the game again so i can play it.

    I'm not going to remember everything, but i would at least hope that people take me seriously. Of course, i've learned that people never do.

    That is, if i was playing and not fed up with the game. I've even been using racial slurs out loud while playing and i've realized how disgusting that was and decided to stop before i somehow have it ingraved into me.

    It's fine to give the benefit of the doubt when a few details don't line up. Sure, they could have had the hindsight to have a backup save on them, they could have never thought on recording video proof of the softlock before replacing their save, their "recently played with" list could have been cleared for some reason...

    See what's happening here? I'm far from listing all of what's been going on here, and we have a bunch of incredibly convenient coincidences lined up. At one point they stop being "coincidences" and become more of a "pattern".

    Still, do you want to be wrong? I don't want to be one of those other reports.

    Also, if you want to silence this thread, feel free to message me. Though i think i'm playing the "Scared average player" in this fiasco.

    Well, someone recently tried to commit fraud on my card, and you can bet I took screenshots of the transactions, the fraud alert email, among other things, almost immediately.

    Considering the soft lock is possible, I can understand why people would be scared. Just create a backup of your save data regularly on a USB device, if you're worried. I'm fairly certain the WiiU allows at least that much, though I don't think it allows for it on an SD card.

    I'm also looking on Miiverse and it looks like people ARE finding hackers. They're just not confirming it HERE.

    Again, anyone can write anything on the internet. With so many people supposedly coming across hackers, it's surprising we have no solid reports on the games of unsuspecting players being softlocked, or not a single picture or video of the hacker in action, especially considering how much this issue has spread on the internet and in-game.

    Just try to keep an open mind, i'd hate for all this to be called a hoax and then suddenly not again.

    I am keeping an open mind here, but there are only so many things that can be off about something someone wrote on the internet before you start leaning heavily on the "probably BS" side.

    I still don't wanna be there, in case this "Wolf" becomes real.

    Remember the story? He ended up actually being right and eaten, i believe.

    Yes, but in this version of the tale the kid's story has put the entire town up in arms, enough to make it set itself a polar bear... I mean wolf patrol; and the patrol has already killed old man Jenkins's dog because it looked like a wolf under the shadow of its dog house.

    All because he didn't tell us what the wolf looked like.
