(Note: Originally posted in "Server Issues" but felt it deserved its own thread.)

I just started playing this game by boosting with another player. During our session, he informed me that he had been playing Far Cry 2 for about 3 months and was rank 20 on his way to earning the Warlord achievement. However, about two weeks ago he said that the game stopped saving/recording experience earned in ranked matches. He said that no matter how much he ranked up, every time he quits the game his rank was reset to lvl 20. Sure enough, when I got on the next day, my rank was back to lvl 1 with zero exp.

I would like to know if anybody else is experiencing this unfortunate error and more importantly, does anybody know a fix?

I have the same issue too i already contacted tech support on Ubisoft but yet to receive a reply. Saints Row 1 for their TrueSkill servers are having a similar issue where progress towards TrueSkill is not recording.. Ill be checking other games to see if this isn't happening across other old titles like Rainbow Six Vegas 1 or Splinter Cell Double Agent

Any update on this? The game just went onto Games with Gold so i'm sure loads of people will be complaining about this soon.

Yesterday I downloaded the free game on the xbox 360 and really the multiplayer does not record the xp (rank) every time I turned off the machine again I restarted to level 1.Please inform us if Ubisoft is going to do something about it or send me a URL to make the claim , reckon that all players should do the same if we really want the game to be corrected. Thanks

Not only here at this game: GTA IV players are experiencing a similar issue on online mode...

Progress online (money) not saving.

Well that would suggest its really bigger problem with Xbox Live not tracking progress with these older games....

What about progress for the 500 revives? Will they also be lost when a match lasts more than 5 minutes?

I haven't checked, but I'm guessing it won't be an issue. Weapon manual progress is saving properly in matches longer than 5 minutes.

Revives, just like weapon kills are saving properly.

I hear a few mentions of deranking from 30 to 20 using the glitch. Is this possible? If so, how is it done?

Also, rank/xp appear to be fixed? Played last night + logged on just now to see my rank was not reset.

Anyone corroborate?

Confirmed, rank is again saving, I was doing some weapon kill boosting yesterday and resetting my diamonds (thus getting negative XP) and Im now at rank 6 (down from rank 10)...

So everyone who still is looking to boost this game, it seems the tracking issues that Xbox Live had have now been fixed and all stats are saving normally again. So if you are looking to do this, what I would recommend is first doing the weapon kills as that would likely get you to rank 20 by the time you are done and then once you got those done, derank to 30...

Though if you derank to 30 first and then to 20, it should work that way too.
