Invincibility/Ghost account. Can't play any games.
Almost a month now of not being able to play certain games, or register my score on any leaderboards. This is the common Invincibility/Ghost account that many people are experiencing. I feel that it's an account data issue, every-time I log into my account I'm presented with the "New Home" experience, with the key and all the tutorial windows. I then can't play any game or become registered on any leaderboard. I've deleted the app from my headset, re-installed, cleared leaderboard data, changed my outfit, tried just about everything to get my account back to normal.
Thanks for this report! This has been identified and we’ll keep you posted with any updates.

Sent ZBORNOX videos yesterday regarding this issue. I tested 6 different instances of PURGED. The sixth attempt i was finally spawned a vest and gun. I was able to interact with the triggers and was recognized as a player. Majority of the time, many players are unable to play as they are "ghosts" in the world. Player variables do not sync, KUDOS purchased during this stage result in a 0 score on the kudos board. Unable to start a match or travel once in a world as a "ghost" majority of the time. Most of these examples are in the 2 videos i sent yesterday. This is effecting retention and accessibility for this world as well as many others. Here so more lately than before players are grey bald avatars, and being recognized as a player is hit or miss.
There are other worlds that doesn't seem to have as many problems as PURGED does, and Purged is rarely changed other than the gun spawner. I understand the spawning assets is being addressed but when these errors/ bugs present themselves we are loosing visitors and trust. Our names are on these worlds and there is limited to nothing we can do on a user side. In the arena script there is a failsafe triggerplayer script. Added to a trigger still does nothing as the ghost player cannot access triggers. I can attempt a when world is started. when player enters world send delayed event 5 seconds then attempt to fire script, But i am not sure. Last night in build mode, unpublished world, i was not recognized in triggers but was assigned a vest and gun. When the other editors could interact with the trigger the entire time.
The Original arena clash template is what majority of these maps used (i say majority as most of us have made edits cosmetically to the script for colors naming speed ect. It seems its a player being on an older device. It seems to happen to older accounts more so often than new accounts.
I know that the Original arena clash scripts have been updated and tweaked but wasn't sure if it would disseminate to all arenas or if we would have a new template to potentially reimport and customize again.
These are the users that i am aware of off the top of my head having this issue daily. 13_chris / xx_jazzie_xx / Bek416 / Caitvill / The_Human_Calf / Funsized_maddy / Tai_nicole / Pvzarissa / Binxybinx /Jonnymuah / fordeflo / Simplioli / Joseph Michael / Sketedavidson /I am root / Cheddarchichi/ corttoro
There are MANY more.

We all have. For months and months. And months.
Bek416 is the same way and countless others.
