Badge revoked - ANSWERED

Post by benedictarnold » Wed Dec 23, 2015 8:03 pm

My top level badge was revoked, even though I haven't missed any games. Any idea how that could happen?

yes: if you do not have in the last 2 months at least 1-2 finished games (even with zero skips), than you can go down a few levels.

I just finished a game yesterday. I'm pretty active on multiplayer, so I don't think that's the problem.

Can you do something about the ranking? Doesn't seem to accurately report a users activity or likelihood to continue a match once you have started playing.

I responded on the other thread

http://www.ageofstrategy.net/viewtopic. ... 7a4#p17981

As for suggestions, its hard to say since I don't know what the code base looks like. In general I think you should use a mutex to ensure the different players of a match don't experience a race condition. That would give skips a better reliability.

Maybe even have a server-side clock to keep track of the time elapsed. I'd be pretty aggressive with how often you check the server from the client.

If you're worried about network availability, forget it. It's a multiplayer game so offline play shouldn't be expected. If they don't have a reliable network connection then they should t play multiplayer.

Sorry for typos, I'm on mobile.

Ok, badge was demoted again. This time I know for sure that I didn't miss any turns.

Can you turn this feature off until it gets fixed? I'm worried its penalizing me without there being anything I can do to stop it.

"penaltize": it does not "penaltize" you, simply shows your activity status.

do you have the dev version?
- in dev version you can check how is your badge calculated.
- and if you write here what values you see we can calculate if you current badge is fit to those values (game count, and skiped count) or not, and we can fix any bug if there is any.

thanks!
