hi all i would like to ask ubisoft to reset the leaderboards, i am a 10, i worked hard to get a 10 and just recently i have been accused of something called boosting. i think that ubi need to fix this problem as a number of high ranks are not actually good, they leave the console playing its self all day in a rank match to get their score up. i would like to know that i am a rank xx and not questioned or labled a cheat. if they reset the board and fix the problem we could see howmany 25 wont make it back! post here with your views,

I think they need to redo the whole ranking part of the game alltogether. If you beat the host you get kicked. If you don't you stay in so he can beat you again and get some more rank.

Ubisoft can't really do too much about boosting until Microsoft stops giving out multiple free months of Live. As long as people can create multiple accounts for free and use them to boost their primary tag, the problem will continue.

In themeantime, enjoy the free bonus rank you get from killing people whose skill doesn't match their rank.

i think you hit the nail on the head with the free 1 mnth trials of live, stop that and stop the cheats.

not saying it does make them better, i'm simply saying that i worked for my 10. few times now i've been accused of boosting so if there was no way to boost i wouldn't be labled a cheat, i'm quite willing for them to reset the board as i've no dought of getting my 10 back, and with more respect.

i dont think its fair for ubi to be playing with anyones rank as the player has earned it and if ubi resets it i would be <span class="ev_code_RED">*edit*</span> off. All though i dont play the game so i dont care but all the same.


DONT screw with others ranks.. Just not fair. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Id rather go back to a 1 and at least have a chance at getting the leaderboard achievements rather than sit here a watch level 20s talk trash about their "ubber 1337 rankzors"

Yeah but surely the boosters would just boost their ranks up again. It's gonna be a lot harder for the genuine high-rankers (if there are any?)to get their ranks back up than it is for the boosters. Surely it's not gonna be too much hassle for the boosters to just let their primary account play siege against their 1 month account for a few weeks to get back up again.

If you take the ability to play more than one ranked game per room away and not allowing guests to play in ranked rooms it would stop ALOT of boosting.

You can use a second account and split screen in ranked games.

Guests can NOT play in ranked rooms.

To get 2+ people into a ranked room you need 2 seperate Xbox live profiles (as in under different names).

I see Semajs point though. By not allowing 2 people into a ranked room on the same console a-la-PGR3, you would eliminate almost all boosting.

They def should make it so you cannot play ranked game on split screen with 2 different accounts, or atleast make it so they have to be on the same team always, I see that to be the only way to somewhat stop boosters. The only way they would get around that is buying another 360 and another graw. Witch in that case is very sad an they should be allowed to boost due to there sad life.
But resetting the leadersboards would not do any good. I think more people would boost if they reset it cause it would be alot faster to get up 2 a level 25, And host should not be allowed to kick you from a game. It should come up as a vote with all the players like they do in battlefield. Cause i myself have played a beaten level 25's but they just kick me so i get nothing out of it.

I agree on everything but the team vote to eject people. Hosts should always have control over their own rooms.

Besides, a rotton clan could go around taking over rooms whenever they wanted to.

yea i was playing two on one...but he asked us if we wanted to do it and we did and he quit when it was 13-0...we didn't spawn camp either, we laughed so hard at the fact that he probably went down to at LEAST a 24 after that match...lol
