Today was my turn. Not so cool if you are L30, finished the WSR and are involved in Daily Races and doing Global Challenges.
After 2 hours i'm L8 now. Probably L10 before dinner.
It still pisses me off that, despite the cloud saves, there is no option to return to a previous save or to clean your save somehow.
Anyway lots of racing to do before L30 is within reach again.
I'm seriously considering the n00b unlock pack. But that would also be a wrong signal, giving them more money for their faillures....
Probably stick with what i've got.
EDIT: Solved it by retrying 5x in a row, including going back to the start screen. Still have to retry a few times every time i log in now.
Thanks to Lunytrickz, who got a similar problem and solved it this way
EDIT: After many complaints from players, codies released a patch that has fixed the save issues. Very cool indeed.
