    It's really discouraging to try hard on the ladder for days to get a bug like that.

    For the time being the ladder and unofficial tournaments are our only goals for multiplayer players that want to try hard as well as polish their skill. There are many tournaments to play in and this is great, but they are not on everyday so players that have a competitive nature to them use the ladder as a means of self achievement, its very discouraging when you get dropped over 20000 points after a win for the second time. I for one like having a goal when i play a game, or a sense of how i compare to others.

    PS; some future official tournament and ladder support would be great.

    We're sorry that this is still an issue. We're aware of the bug, but we're still working on finding the cause of the issue.

    Appreciated Duck.

    It has just happened to me. I win a game, I go check my ranking and I drop from top 13 to 1157th. The other player left the game seconds before he gets the defeat.

    @ Duck. Can we get our ranking back somehow?
  • dR_paindR_pain Posts: 2Registered Users
    The same thing here, just happened to me :( . i lost about 23.000 points after a quick battle. I know ladder doesnt mean a lot, but if u want to encourage more and more people to play multiplayer you should fix this.

    Actually the leaderboard is quite decent since the patch and would be perfect without that bug. Now we clearly see the difference between the good players and those who just play a lot and alt+F4...
    We just need this fix and some unit caps to prevent boring spam battles.

    I play almost exclusively MP though 1 or 2 campaigns from time to time can't hurt ;).

    Also some sort of way to identify wintrading (having multiple accounts and matching against yourself) would be good. But that's also outside the scope of this thread.

    Still no news Duck? This is a fairly worrying trend.

    Yeah win trading needs to be addressed, i feel overall there are much less ways to abuse the ladder which is great and points gain/lost seems reasonable.

    Just target win trading and point loss bug than the fundamentals of the ladder will be in the rite place and we can move on to other things such as restrictions and rewards

    We're still trying to figure out what's going wrong here. Currently the issue is that we're not having any luck with finding a consistent way of reproducing the issue. I'll try to get more focus from us on this issue.

    Thank you Duck for you concern. However I still don't understand why you aren't able to give the player his ranking back immediately after that happens.

    This is like a campaign player who has to start his campaign all over again and can never finish it.

    Ive been hit by the bug twice, one more time I will have to look at different options. Probably ask Sega for a refund or something, idk.

    This bug happend to me yesterday. Was top 30, then 1245th place ... -27 000 points for a win
  • CA_DuckCA_Duck Posts: 449Registered Users, CA Staff
    Just to get a clarification, are you dropping to around 30,000 points each time this happens?

    @Spaniard
    It is technically impossible for us to give rankings back.

    Man I feel for you bro. I really do. Just awful that CA has let this happen to you and so many others.

    Yeah I have seen this hit a bunch of people so far and am thankful it hasnt hit me. each time they drop from the top 100 to somewhere between 1000 and 1500 ranking. Hope this helps @CA_Duck

    Got the bug again....another 24,000 points down, SERIOUSLY its getting too much.

    3rd time happened to me 2 times over 24000 points drop and once 3000, so frustrating. Can we get a fix
  • zer0zer0 Posts: 63Registered Users
    NinjaHund got it 3 times already too
  • zer0zer0 Posts: 63Registered Users
    Spaniard seems get it once a week or something :P
  • SpaniardSpaniard Posts: 364Registered Users
    Haha! Yes I did get it like 3 times too. So I gave up caring about the ranking. Now I try every faction, new things... so having quite a lot of fun actually. Thanks CA! ;-)
  • RiggsenRiggsen Member Posts: 1,646Registered Users
    Wish I could get the bug so I could play around with stuff outside the meta too. *GRUMBLES*

    Nah, seriously, that blows. The worst part is that CA can't fix it if they can't identify what's causing it and it seems like there's no common factor when it happens? I grilled Lotus about last night but seems like there is no pattern. The only thing you guys have in common is that you all play a LOT of quick battles. But by that rationale, the other guys with 500+ games should have encountered it too, and this just isn't the case :weary:

    It also happens to me. I read that it isn´t possible that CA can give you your ranking back, so this will be the last time for me playing this game. I will also close my YouTube Channel and tell my followers and all my friends to do the same.

    It's crazy that this is still an issue.

  • EizoEizo Posts: 667Registered Users
    it because it happen too random for them to find the cause of the problem, since it looks like you have to play a lot of games to every get the bug.

    though I bet it has something to do with the Alt-f4 prevention system they added in the last patch.
  • CrazyeightCrazyeight Posts: 37Registered Users
    What is the Ladder worth? Nothing... so remove it. This problem is not a acceptable issue, with which you can live with. It destroys the complete online community in any possible way. So in fact TW: Warhammer is not competitive playable. All my friends told it to me before, I told them that it is... no I have to reverse my opinion.

    lots of people play competitively every weekend in tournaments. Your friends are definitely wrong.
  • CrazyeightCrazyeight Posts: 37Registered Users
    Give me a break! On one site a little truth in it, but you have to change the whole game for your tournaments. That is the reason why I don´t play them. If you mean 8 races (soon 12) can ever be balanced you live in Disney Land. Dream on!

    Some suggest that is should be a fix race pre-combat choice, that you can´t switch after it... dumbest idea ever, cause´ after that there will be three matchups left: Bretonia V.s. Vampire // Vampire V.s. Vampire // Bretonia V.s. Bretonia. The game is dead if there will ever be a system like this.
