So, I was preplexed to find out that my DOA score was 1,000 points less this morning than it was yesterday....and my 47 win record was down to zero!  :shock:

Reading other forums....it looks like ALL games have had their leaderboards RESET, new year...new leaderboards!

My 276,000 on Geometry Wars....gone! Doh!

"... the center does not hold."

Not surprising, but that still will suck come 2007 when all scores are reset again.

I hate it when they do that.  Compiling an amazing record on NHL 2k6 only to have it wiped, argh!

Did the actual gamerpoints for everyone get reset?  Or did that stay the same?

well, I guess it sucks if you have pretty good scores, but good if you have sucky scores!!   :wink:

This makes me think of that one seinfeld episode where George wanted to save the frogger arcade machine because he had the highest score on it.

Haven't they always done that every couple of months?  I know my record in NFL 2K5 has been reset about 6 times since I have been playing it.

Well, sure life will go on, but this is very frustrating for people that spend long hours compiling records in certain games. I mean I understand why they do it sometimes, but I really feel like they should do it at most once a year-they've been doing it far more frequently lately.

Sounds like it was a glitch?

We are currently experiencing an issue with some of the leader boards and stats for Xbox 360 titles. We have identified the issue, and are working on resolving it over the next few hours. Until this issue is resolved, there will be some leader boards and stats issues….thanks for your patience as we work through this. Now would be a good time to work on the campaigns of some of those single player games you have  

I’ll update this post when the issue is resolved.

It's an excellent policy for Microsoft to reset the leaderboards regularly if they want people to hate Xbox Live and the 360. I read somewhere that part of Microsoft's strategy to keep people from switching to the PS3 when it comes out is to get users invested in their Live rankings and scores. Why would they just reset them?

They've reset leaderboards on sports titles for the original XBox for years.

And one day in we already have the stupidest post of 2006.  Xbox Live is sooooooo much better than playing anything online on the PS2.  Sure, it costs money, but it is worth it.  It does suck when you work hard to achieve a good record, but if that is going to make you switch systems then you are a moron.  Think of it as the "gaming season" coming to an end.  Like the NFL, you have the Super Bowl and then everyone goes back to 0-0.  Work your way back up the ranks!  Yes, that is a joke.

GatorFavre,

Try a basic reading comprehension course, perhaps. I said that I had read that Microsoft expects people to want to stay with the 360 because they are invested in the Xbox live rankings, not that I was going to switch to the PS3 because the rankings were reset. How could you get that from what I wrote?

Can I assume from the "Favre" in your name that you're a cheesehead?

Also, the title of this whole thread is in error. Microsoft did not reset the leaderboards; it's a bug they're fixing. If they're trying to get people invested in their rankings, they won't reset the leaderboards. I think what made people assume that the boards had been reset was that it happened on January 1st.

NO....whats a cheesehead?  Who are the Packers and what is a Brett Favre?  Not that I know what that has to do with the length of an Eskimo's dick on a cold night.  

You said resetting the Live leaderboards would make people hate the 360 and Xbox Live, and that Microsoft is relying on Xbox Live to keep people from switching to the PS3 when it comes out.  So wouldnt it be logical to derive that if Microsoft is doing something to make people hate their system and the services they offer then those customers would likely switch to the PS3?    And I agree, this thread is in error.  And when I was saying "you"  I didnt necessarily mean you, but everyone that owns a 360.  Sorry for the confusion.
