I've been really ticked off by dying and losing a lot of good stuff due to server screw-ups and not to ark bugs. Most recently, I just lost another 20k element tek suit to a forced restart to a mod update. Now owing to the mod update time (potentially 1hr and 15 mins) I will lose everything without any chance of being able to get them back. So either increasing duration for which the death bag lasts or by decreasing GREATLY the time needed to check for updating mods/ark version, or even decreasing the time for restart from 15-5 minutes would go a long way in making sure people don't lost stuff to server bullshit and not ark bugs.
Somethings like these NEED to be changed, or at least addressed. Having both a no-refund policy and not giving people a chance to recover their things is absolutely garbage. I usually write with a clear head, but this is happening multiple times to a lot of people and it really gets on people's nerves to lose large amounts of progress and being unable to go and recover it. This is normal gameplay, not a boss fight or anything of the sort and I am sure LOTS of people will have the same opinion as me.
Survived because of some sick luck but my argument still stands.
