View Full Version : Leaderboards leaderboards leaderboards...

Arrgghhh! This is really starting to give me the irits and to prompt me to stop playing. At last time I looked, there were 10 broken leaderboards. Does someone want a list? OK, so maybe there's a minority of players who actually spend time going through every challenge and trying to achieve better scores, and maybe there's only a fraction of that minority that get frustrated by the futileness of playing ten out of some 80-odd levels/challenges because the LBs are broken, but I can guarantee that 100% of that fraction of a minority is "as mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!". Reality is, of course, nowt we can do abaht it but buckle doon and soldier on. Sigh - look, can we PLEASE get the LBs fixed - soon...now...yesterday? Pllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssss eeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A leaderboard fix is coming.* It will take some time to get tested, through cert, and released, but that is all in progress.

this is really good to hear Jeff! I was starting to despair a bit but nice to know you are working on it :)
Is it going to include cannon fix and checkpoint fix?
I haven't played once since i seen em, they are too annoying. Although i did also get a ps3 so that would also be why:)

Excellent news - muchos gratias! Any notions as to how long, ie days, weeks, months?
Yes, there will be a cannon fix in the update as well as leaderboard fixes.* We're trying to finish up the sound fixes right now.* They're challenging.
As for checkpoint issues - we aren't aware of checkpoints not working as they are supposed to.* They don't activate if cheat codes are being used or if a save game that used cheat codes before is being used.* If you have data on how they are behaving differently than that, please let us know.
What? I showed you a youtube video of them not working 2 weeks ago.
I didn't even know there are cheat codes on xbox 360, no cheat codes are being used. What are the cheat codes for xbox btw? I do like the freecam one from pc.
I could make more vids of other broken checkpoints but it's the same thing each time and boring :)
Sorry, of course you are correct.* That got forwarded to the engineering team and I had forgotten.

Just wanted to add something, because I think this is why I came to these forums. The scores on the leaderboard don't seem right. I can see some boards where I have the same amount of cores left, fewer towers, but a lower score.

There might be a problem, but check this first. The overall score reflects cores, towers and most importantly, interest earned. Once you're past the first few levels, interest gained is the #1 determinant of scores. Timing plays a critical part here. two players doing exactly the same things can get hugely different scores just based on one timing better, ie delay builds and upgrades strategically. You can in effect use more towers ie spend more money, but get a better total score at the end, depending on timing of tower builds alone. So, while not ruling it out, my take on this is that the leaderboards are probably OK. Check your interest accrual throughout the game when you replay as this gives you the best idea of how you're going.
