Achievement Streak Recalc List (Timestamp Issues)

  • Posted on 04 October 19 at 22:35, Edited on 01 November 19 at 23:06 by Reborn InsanityPermalink
    Good news and bad news. Good news is that MS has finally fixed their end of the timestamp issues. Bad news is that they screwed up not only achievements earned during that period, but some previous achievements from years ago. This means that timestamps will have to be rebuilt and re-scanned for every single achievement, across every account, site wide. This is going to take weeks and quite possibly, months.

    With that being said, not everyone had an ongoing streak while this happened so there was no negative effect on them. So what I would like to do is compile a list of users in this thread who did have their streak broken by the future timestamp issue so that we can prioritize recalculating your timestamps first instead of having you wait another month for the site wide scan to hit you.

    I will be going through some of the old threads where people initially reported being hit by the timestamp issue and be gathering some gamertags to start the list, but there's no question that I'll miss a few people. So if you don't see your tag on the list below please drop a comment and you'll be added.

    Thank you everyone for your patience over the last couple of months and hopefully MS won't let this issue happen a third time.

    Just a warning though, if you did not continue to earn daily achievements after having your streak affected then this scan will not fix it. Your timestamps will be fixed, but your streak will have still died either way. So please only comment to have your name added if your streak is still ONGOING.

    I didn't have a streak going during the future issues, and I didn't have any streaks SERIOUSLY affected by them
    is that they screwed up not only achievements earned during that period, but some previous achievements from years ago
    but some of my previous streaks which were purposefully on certain numbers did get tweaked by one achievement.

    If there's any chance of them getting borked I'd rather just leave them as is, but if they can be fixed to what they were and are supposed to be that'd be great too. Mostly done with streaks at this point in my life.

    this one should be 100 days and 1000 achievements
    iMaginaryy Win Streak - 100 days from 21 Apr 14

    this one should be 60 days and 1000 achievements
    iMaginaryy Win Streak - 60 days from 30 Oct 14

    Those will be fixed during the site wide scan. It just might take some time before you're hit by it.

    I think I know what the problem is. I went to settings and adjusted the time zone to Eastern then it worked.

    Just an update for everyone from the devs:

    The scanners still need some tweaking and re-writing before they can undergo this project. So at the earliest, it will still take a few weeks. Thank you for being patient and make sure to keep those streaks going.
    See You Space Cowboy...

    An achievement I earned yesterday didn't pop until this morning and my streak broke as a result, am I able to be added to this list as well?
