View Full Version : My game has gone wrong.

Earlier tonight I was informed upon turning the game on that I had two games under progress and I had to pick one to continue with. This has never happened before and I only play on one device. My choices were Rider Level 50 and Rider Level 50 (last played two hours ago). Considering that I had last played the game two hours prior I chose the second option.

Since this has happened I am not getting any score increases for beating my times. My score has remained static since and I've beaten my times on a handful of courses. Last night I beat my time on a level and despite my new time showing as my best time on the course screen it didn't change on the leaderboard and I got no points. When I realised I improved it and both leaderboard and score reflect this. Since it made me choose my track leaderboards improve but my overall score does not.

If that wasn't enough I just noticed that Buggy Track and Serpent Slough are non selectable. They state I have to complete ANBA but I finished the ANBA cycle a long time ago.

It is probably for the best.

I had the same thing going on a couple times before. After beating levels my score didnt improve. It lasted sometimes for a day or more. After that suddenly it started working again, but Im affraid those scores beaten during this time havent updated to the leaderboards. I also often have the other problem youre describing that after beating time on a level it shows up when i click on that level, but doesnt update on the leaderboards. It sometimes upadates after few hours, but not always. I currently have at least one level where my score should place me in the top ten on that level, but instead shows my old score placing me somewhere in the 40s. This usually happens when after beating my score i have temporary connection issues (which also happens a lot with this game for no apparent reason). All in all im affraid im loosing a lot of scores i beat in the overall leaderboards which really sucks. I already reported this bug, you should too

I don't see the point reporting it, it isn't going to get fixed!

I have seen other people saying they've lost access to ANBA tracks too.

I'll check back with the next update but in the meantime I'm done with the game.

Edit:
None of the ANBA tracks are selectable!

Flower Hills is there, Buggy Track and Serpent Slough are ethereal and the rest are there too but none are selectable.

This all started when it told me I had to select a game progress to continue. I play on an i-Pad as my only device and I've never experienced connectivity issues.

Edit 2:
I beat my Quagmire time by over a second and my score has remained the same again.

I've seen people out of sequence on the global leaderboards before where a higher score gets overtaken by a lower score. I guess this is probably the issue. The game thinks I have a lower score than is displayed to me when in fact I should have a higher score. It appears that when I selected to progress with my last played game it kept all of my leaderboard improvements but took away the points yet still displays that I have the points. I don't think my score will increase until I match the shortfall (about 150k by my reckoning) but those points I earned have been lost and cannot be regained by me.

I was reaching the end of my capacity to grind this game but this has ruined it. The game is pointless right now.

I have had the "choose your rider" thing literally dozens of times. I always picked the one that was most recent, and not the one from hours ago. I'm on Android btw.

I've actually seen a few times where the "older" rider is from more than 40,000 days ago. Yes, 40,000. Around 47,000 I think. I've been tempted to press that to see what happens, but I always decide not to. Glad I didn't.

My options were Rider Level 50 and Rider Level 50 (last played two hours ago). My last session was two hours before, it makes sense that that should be the most recent one. Apparently not.

**** it.

Yeah, I went the other way with the one without a timestamp being the most recent. I can see why you thought otherwise. Hopefully you get it fixed soon.

eldroo has just overtaken my score but he remains behind me on the leaderboard. I just beat another of my times and it still isn't adding score.

I'm confused.

If my score was lower than displayed then eldroo would be in front of me. The fact he isn't suggests my score is growing but it just isn't displaying it on the leaderboards.

I doubt an update will change this situation. My score needs to be reset and recalculated. Until it is fixed the game has lost purpose.

I've put a staggering amount of grind into this game and to have my game screw up on me is hugely frustrating. I cannot begin to imagine how that feeling would be multiplied if I'd paid money instead of time!

Edit:
He just overtook me properly and there is nothing I can do about it!

It had started accumulating score but it has just shafted me over again.

Any improvements are hard earned now so it hurts when those points are not only not awarded but seemingly lost forever.

I want to stop playing it but I'm terribly addicted. I've said I'll stop playing it many times but it keeps pulling me back in. This inconsistency in recording my score is ruining the experience of playing the game.

Have you submitted a proper report to Ubisoft? It's better to do that than on the forums, especially when it's a specific problem you're having and it's game-breaking.

I see you didnt stop playing after all ;)
Did you do anything specific to make it work again. Im having this issue again right now. So frustrating. Do you remember if when it started working again, did the points that were not accumulating, added up as well? In other words was it a big increase in score or just a small one from the last beaten track. I'm not sure if I should wait it out or keep playing and count on getting all the missing points once it starts working again?

Anyways, nice run youre having lately - increasing your score like crazy ;). I cant keep up :)

I have barely played the last 2 weeks, and when I do, its to try and beat a particularly nasty ANBA on a track I am terrible at. I am just watching you all go past me.... :)

I didn't do anything specific at all. Just kept at it. Some of my points have been lost for good. It has happened again a couple times since too.

Last night I beat a couple of times before bed and neither registered. My Profile reset to rank 1 and default rider on Armadillo on the leaderboards (which I've seen many times on other players but never on myself). I was a little concerned. Today I checked the leaderboard when I woke up and it hadn't changed. I checked both tracks and the times had stuck. I went back to the global leaderboard and the points were miraculously added!

It is completely random.

As for my score, I think it will be slowing down a bit now, there aren't many courses left that I haven't done to death! Having your times only spurred me on. You were the catalyst for my charge up the leaderboards.

Luckily it only lasted for few hours, but I lost scores from several tracks I beat times on.
Im sure the scores are lost because when it finally started working again it was after I beat time by very little, only 0,050 sec, and got only around 1000 points for it. Before that I beat my time on about 4 tracks, altogether worth around 1,5 sec, which should easily be about 30k points. I was never awarded them. Anyways like you said it seems pretty random, but they should fix it. It happened to me several times now. It's been a while since the last update so hopefully they are on it.

Im also wondering how exactly does the algorithm for adding points work. I remember reading somewhere that you get more points if you beat times of people who have more upgraded bikes. In other words the less upgraded bike you have the more points you will score. Can anybody confirm that?

I lost the points from knocking 4.5 seconds off Quagmire and 1.5 seconds off Cracked Reservoir along with about a dozen other lesser improvements. That was what led me to post this thread, those are some serious points I lost!

I was grinding springs on Crane Peak and beat my 8th place time by accident. It didn't connect to update and I got nothing but frustration. The next day the leaderboard updated and I'm now 6th but no points! It is completely random.

I haven't been able to connect to the leaderboards all day today. My internet is fine (as proved by this post) and I'm connected to Uplay so I can only assume it is inconsistencies at RedLynx's end. I hope they're doing a recalculation and my lost points are added when I get back on but I know that hope will be dashed in my heart.

I'm currently experiencing the same crap as before - my score not updating aftering beating time on a track. I've just improved my result on elephant graveyard by over a second and got no points for it. First I improved it by about 0,3 seconds, looked at how my score improved but got nothing. To make sure I continued playing and improved it by another 0.6 sec, and the score on the leaderboards remained the same. So, I guess they didnt fix this bug either with the new update. So disapointing..



edit: Right after that post I went into the game and it started connecting to server and suddenly asked me if I wanted to keep my current game or download from the server (from 4 hours ago), even though I havent changed devices since than and played the game few times during these 4 hours. So I clicked to leave current game, of course nothing changed. So I thought that maybe if I beat some time on another track this will update as well. But it didnt, I got only points from another track. These points from knocking off 1 second are lost forever, added to my pool of lost points, never to be seen...

Ok, so I needed a final confirmation if these points are lost forever, and decided to once again try to beat my score on the same track (elephant graveyard), to see if I'll get those missing ones as well. Even though I was already 4th in this track, I gave it a try. I finally managed to improve my time once again, by another 0.3 seconds, placing me on the 2nd position on this track. But I got only a few thousand points, so got awarded only the latest progress on that track. Altogether for almost 1,5 seconds it should have been around 20-30 thousand points. That means that for sure the points for improving my time earlier are lost. It also means that the algorithm for adding points doesnt take into account your overall score on the track, but the progress from your last score. So if you're not awarded the points for one progress for some reason, you'll never get them. That sucks. I dont know how many points I've lost this way so far, but it has happened a lot to me before.

I've had the same thing happen four times now on new tracks where I've unlocked a track and got a gold medal first run, only to score 0 xp at the end of it, then when I do improve my time all I get is a few thousand Xp for going from gold to platinum. It seems to happen when I loose connection to the server temporally but never updates the score when it reconnects, I've missed out on a couple million Xp at this point with no way of making it up, so frustrating when it happens.

I played the first three new courses and got the points then stopped playing them until I collected them all. When I did the fourth new track I got a gold and checked the leaderboards. It wouldn't connect and my score remained the same. I ran it again later when it connected and got a platinum and all of the points showed up. Haven't had an issue since.

Since the latest update I have seen that dual progress/select save to continue screen another three or four times. One time it gave me a choice between current game and last played 0 minutes ago!

I always check to make sure the leaderboards are connecting before I attempt to improve times now.

Between this and the crashes the game has become quite tricky to play for improvements.
