Unlock Percentages being rounded

I know I am not the only person that has noticed this is the last week or so, but I haven't seen it addressed in the forums (maybe just missing it).

Anyways, the unlock percentages for any given achievement used to be rounded to the hundredths place (i.e, 10.04%). Now they are rounded to a whole number.

I guess this isn't a huge issue, but there is certainly useful information there that is being hidden. I can't think of any good reason why the change would have been made.

In fact, sometimes the rounding makes a reasonable difference. For example, there are now very rare achievements that have been unlocked that are showing up as 0% unlocked by the new rounding system.

Was this intentional, or should this be brought to the Bugs Report forum?

For achievements below 1% unlock I see the decimal point again. For example:

SUPER BOMBERMAN RLocal Battle 1,000The Local Battle 1,000 achievement in SUPER BOMBERMAN R worth 603 pointsPlayed 1,000 Multiplayer Battles

SUPER BOMBERMAN RRoom ChampThe Room Champ achievement in SUPER BOMBERMAN R worth 814 pointsCreated a Room and Battled 100 times


These are at 0.2% and 0.3% respectively

The percentages are showing as rounded up for me.
Bow down to me, peasants! And, look busy! Go shuck some corn or something.

Sorry, I realize my original post wasn't very specific.

Just so we are on the same page, I am referring to the ones on the right side of the page (TA unlock percent vs. Xbox Live unlock percent).

I can still see the accurate percentages for TA under the individual achievement info. It is more of an issue with the Xbox live info.

For both of those examples, the site is showing 0% unlocked for TA and Live.

Good to know. I was originally going to post it there, but I wasn't sure if it was actually a bug or an executive decision from the site.

Hopefully it will get changed back.

Its probably a data storage saving thing/speed thing. less tables to recalculate etc.

I hope it is changed back, it was good to see the real percentage before.

How about an update (or even an acknowledgement) on this, TA Staff?

I just noticed that TrueTrophies still displays the fractions of percentages (to tenths anyway) and doesn't round them. This gives me hope that it's a bug and will be fixed.
