    Stat Glitch

    Post by ceejay on Wed Dec 24, 2014 5:37 am

    Long story, here we go.

    It all starts with that glitch a couple months ago where everyone was a cadet.
    Stupid me, clicked restore (or maybe it was record) stats, which actually reset them. At the time I was a Captain, approximately level 40 marine and level 60 thing.

    After the glitch was fixed, I spoke to Vicboy, who directed me to the mods. I spoke to them, and one of them kindly agreed to fix my stats I believe it was Perp or Yoallcapslol. He asked for how many points I had, but I forgot (I never payed attention to points) so I just told him the levels. I haven't spoken to him recently, but I can only surmise that the mods are only able to change players' points, which in turn, changes their levels.

    It was a miscommunication, through no fault of his own, he overshot the point values, and I ended up with level 100-ish marine and level 90-ish thing.

    We both noticed it the next game, so he lowered it, but again, missed the point value such that I was now 90-ish marine and 70-ish thing.


    I have a guilty conscious, so I'd feel bad with such a higher level and the rank of general, so I asked to him to change it again. Then he just kind of disappeared off of the face of the Koprulu sector.
    I complained to Vicboy about it, who, always (understandably) busy, directed me to the mods. The only ones I knew of where gone.

    The thing is, my "Games Played" was only about 100, so people kept accusing me of hacking. I took offense to this, and explained what happened somewhat angrily.
    For about 2 months, I played, lowering my rank to Captain whenever the game started (if I remembered haha.)
    I did some basic math, comparing levels I have gained to determine I was approximately Major, so I started lowering my rank only 2 units instead of 3.

    Just recently, my stats went down back to captain, but now they are at what I believe to be its bare minimum. Currently level 30 in each. I believe this is when a moderator, (whose name I shall withhold because I have no evidence) lowered this after seeing my glitched stats. (S)he asked me about them, so I explained, and I thought I satisfied them, apparently not.

    So my problem is my stats are somewhat lower than I believe they should be. My status as Major is debatable, as that was my own attempt at making up for lost progress, but I was a bare minimum of level 45 marine and 60 thing.

    Yeh, I did that you goof

    you were a general with less than 1000 games played.

    Question tho, do you really care about your stats that much?

    I believe I explained the circumstance to you, Datastick. Were you not satisfied?

    And yes, I do care about my stats. Call me shallow, but it helps my self-esteem. I took great pride in my thing level being much higher than my marine level.
    More importantly, thing level plays a huge role in the thing selection when in Pro-opt mode, which I support.

    Hey Ceejay! Been some time.

    I can't remember if it was me or YOALL, but I do remember this incident. Frankly at this point, I think you are about a general, and around 60k TP. Don't argue, you deserve it in my opinion Smile

    I'll be happy to do this as soon as I'm on.

    Wow, thanks man! You rock!

    Thanks for vouching for me, I know the whole story seems a little far fetched.

    Come back soon man, we gotta play!

    He was simply asking if you were not happy with his explanation of the subject.

    And Datastick, points are what runs this game, and many others. People want to see their progress and show to others that they are skilled. It's not shameful nor rare.

    I'll make stats restoration by admin easier to do later on. I'll also assign new mods, they probably know who they are.
