    The server hasn't crashes or anything, and remember you can do /stats to see the server load - if this is < 1 it probably means the lag isn't because the server is processing logs or something.

    Also, not saying this is what happened, but keep in mind if you were kicked out of a game, it could still take 5 minutes to finish, and may be confusing if you had just won in a different game, then the point loss from the first game gets removed.

    I'd like to setup a message log so you can easily see all messages with stuff like that, even if you weren't connected at the time, to make things clearer.
    Nope i haven't seen anything weird with the points except that i am losing a lot less.

    Hey Seth,

    Thanks for the quick reply! Regarding the 5 mins mentioned above, I never play back to back games. After each match I always enter a private room where I take a 2 to 10 min break.

    I know sometimes players get kicked from a game because they lost connection, happens all the time. I know because while I'm still in the game they send me a message letting me know they didn't quit but lost connection. This has happen to me before as well, but I never see the final score screen if I'm the only one that lost connection. When everyone losing connection is where you see the final score screen, no points gained and lost.

    Regarding Soccerfu comment that the point system is fine, I agree. I have no problem losing point if I lose. But in this case I lost point when I won. Also I have only had this problem last night between 10 PM - 11 PM Est time. Soccerfu was not online during this time frame so that why it did not affect him.

    Some players that were online are Scope, Roadkill, Yourself, ChoduRam,

    Hope this will help. For myself, not worried at all, will gain the 70 pts back in a game or two but for lower ranks this could be discouraging

    I thought I was going nuts!!! Yes, I was in the game with you and was shown the screen where we all lost connection and zero points. I played a couple of games after that and then quit for about 45 mins. Logged back on and I was down to 414 from 435. (I know because that was my high score to date) I knew I had not been on for quite some time and had not lost any recent games. I wondered what had happened...or was I going nuts.

    Default Losing Connection Problem



    Hi Seth,

    I'm sure there is a problem now. I just played a game about 5 mins ago. It stated I lost connection and took me to the Final Score Screen showing no points gained or lost. I waited 5 mins and saw that my pts increased by 8. So in this case some of my teammates where still in the game and won.

    I have been noticing in games more players are leaving before it ends. I'm sure they are not quitting but what happened above happens to them.

    Maybe something to do with the new patches.

    Now this is not good because now when I play I have to make sure I have all good teammates just in case I get kicked or the majority of my team gets kicked. This is just going to make it very bad for all white and green level players. I don't mind playing with them as long as I'm in the game because I know how I perform.

    I'm sure other players are noticing more tankers are leaving in the middle of the game than usual.

    Something is very wrong! I have been playing for sometime now and this is the first of this so it has nothing to do on my side such as internet connection, device(Touchpad), etc.

    I know i use the same device as you do and my internet connection is lost so much of its quality. now on a scale from 1 to 10 before it was a 8. Now it is an 4. I am going to stop playing until this is fixed. I mean sometimes i am right next to the source of internet(like 2 inches) and it still loses connection.

    Soccerfu the problem is not on our end, there is something wrong with the app. I also did a speed test on my internet for down and upload speed and it is well above average. I have never had this problem before.

    I know your where online tonight and saw what I was talking about, people leaving game like crazy. I'm also concerned about playing until this is fixed and I'm sure other tankers will feel the same once they catch on

    Noticed the same thing tonight...just figured ????
    I just checked my points and wow...down again for no reason! Have not been online for over an hour. The Gods will just not let me break 500. The last game I was in started with a lot of players....then only a few were left, then the connection broke. I just fired up the TP and see where I am below where I thought I was an hour ago.

    Sup fellas,

    I just played a couple games and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I was however, playing with Santa and noticed he left in the middle of 2 or 3 games. Not sure if he was getting booted or what. I will play a bit more later and report back.

    On a side note, I was playing maze (the small 2v2 map that is a square and gray) and spawned in the wall twice. The left rear tread was stuck in the wall and I couldn't move. Did get a screen shot and it only happened twice, so maybe it was a fluke.

    OK I have been watching my point since the issue started. I just lost connection in a game. We were winning score 3 to 1. I know how many pts I had before the game and haven't lost connection until this game. I go to my private room and see I lost about 15 points for no reason. I went straight into private room after lost connection, so I know the game hasn't ended yet goal was 20. People are losing points for no reason. This is a fact, no if ands and buts. It is happening. This really going to mess up the enjoyment of the game

    As far as networking - nothing has changed on the server with networking AFAIK.

    How do you know the game hadn't ended yet? If everyone from one team left, the game will end instantly, which is the only time points are added/removed.

    I'll try to duplicate this and see what happens for me.

    What are the odds that everyone on my team, which were mostly high ranks, would leave the game

    Same thing just happened to me. It seems that the "lost connection" happens more often in Town than anywhere else. It was in a team game that was set to 20, score was 8 to 9. I lost connection, went straight to the VIP lobby and lost 23 points.

    Lag in Town also appears to be getting worse.

    Another game, it was 3 against me and the score was 18 to 19. They killed me and I turned into a dead zombie and then it said "lost connection" at which point the game ended (i am assuming because I left and they won by default) and I lost points. I understand this scenario, just saying that it sucks because I would have probably won that game. This happened in Egypt.

    Just a quick update from yesterday:

    I was playing a team game in egypt? maybe town..?

    Anyway, there was 8 players. I was on one team and TPNFRC was on the other. TPs team was up by 2 points and the game lost connection. TP and I confirmed that everyone lost connection via Private Message. Although the scoring system said no one gained or lost points, TP gained points and I lost 30.

    What I am guessing happened is that the system looks to see who had the highest score and then awards the win to that team. Compare it to a game where the other team completely quits and you win by default, the same concept applies here.

    Or maybe what happens is that not everyone gets booted (loses connection) at the same exact moment, thus the last player to lose connection gets the win, even though it appears that everyone loses connection at the same time.....

    Anywho, this is not very equitable to either teams and needs to be resolved.

    Gracias Amigos!

    Anyone having issues with beagles? I have them blow up if im anywhere near an object. I have the blow up as soon as I hit the beagle button and im not near anything. Ive had on 2 separate occasions tonight go directly through a tank and not do anything... one of the times it was in the pyramid as the other tank was coming towards me leaving the pyramid.

    Crashing seems to be getting worse. In the last 2 nights ive crashed at least 10 times (out of maybe 40 games) ive gone from 1400 points to 600 during that time and im very quickly losing interest in Tanked. Its too buggy... im sure some people are doing fine and I see many gaining in points but im not one of the lucky ones. Im contemplating just going to the tavern and gambling my points away and becoming a white until Seth gets this worked out.

    I know wa wa wa im crying about it... yup I am, its a free game and yes its great but its making me nuts and i may just step away for a while.

    yellow will be white soon!

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! After losing a couple hundred more points I played my last 400 in the casino and now I'm at 0!!!!!

    I am right there with you, but I keep reminding myself it is just a game.......

    I have recently witnessed dogs walking through tanks but I assumed that it was because of lag and that the tank already moved..... Never encountered an isolated incident like you saw in the pyramid.

    Crashing seems to be hit or miss for me. Last night I played for 2 hours and didn't lose connection once, although lag was pretty bad. The night before I lost connection maybe 4 times in an hour.

    I will rant with you that it sucks how some seem to continually raise their reputation points and others struggle. Last night I went up to 1100 only to lose a bunch of team lobby games which dropped me to 700. Most of these games I was thrown into where teams were already lop-sided = 3 whites and me playing all colors.

    I think the major fix to this would be an updated scoring system in team lobby games. The win to loss distribution of points is not equitable to those with a high rank. An idea would be a 25% split between winning and losing instead of a 300% split. An example: if I win I get 7 points and if I lose 10 are taken away.

    I don't care if I lose points, its part of the game, but I absolutely hate having to dig myself out of a hole when playing in team lobby.

    Keep your head up yellow and keep plugging away. Consistency and persistence is key for players like us.

    I too, was part of that fight, lost connection and 30+ points. Could the game be giving the win to the side of the side of the last player who's disconnection gets processed?
