    well,

    has anyone else noticed that the multiplayer recordings have apparently become much poorer in the past few weeks.
    I know of something like 8-10 matches that I have won/lost in competitive play that have not been fully recorded, but instead say "battle not completed"....
    this is really annoying, especially when you are on a winning streak.

    -has anyone else noticed the recent decrease in effective result recording??
    maybe we should get them to work on this as well as the other things they are working on??

    It's time to go on the honor system, then.

    I think the best thing would be to have more Tourneys and other competitions. These would be much more fun. The problem with the honour rankings is that they are supposed to be the definitive rankings, so everybody gets really obsessed with them. With Tourneys held every so often, it gives everyone an even chance of competing, and if they do well in those matches they win. The guy who wins the Tourney is not champion forever though, and must defend his position in the next Tourney.

    I am definitely all for having more tourneys, official or otherwise for the community...gives me that warm glow inside...on the subject of MP recordings, I still have 5 or 6 battles from last year that are still marked as incomplete!! I hope someone is taking note of this, I want my ranking to be an acurrate assessment of battles won and lost, tis only fair.

    The problem is that nobody can correct these results now, since there are no publicly accessible admins, nor is there any way of entering results for games not recorded (imagine the cheating! ) so I guess we're stuck with the odd unrecorded result here and there

    Just a word of warning if you try to escape out and get hung instead- you may get a loss instead of an incomplete

    We wer playing a 4v4 when the other guys lost a player due to a drop. Being the chivalrous type as host I hit to allow for a restart, but nothing happened. Hit it 4-5 times still nothin. Finally resorted to . When I checked my record I had a loss

    Yeah, I remember that battle!

    It was very weird, since AFAIK (I have never used it, ever) ESC allows you to quit a battle without recording a result.

    It seems a bit odd that after all we hear about the abuses of ESC then when it is used legitimately it doesn't work!

    Blackship, in the same battle as your ally, as we believed that if the host ESC'ped no honor lost, I believe I was awarded a victory.... Go figure? There be something strange going on....

    OK Widda...give it back!!!

    I now know what it's like to feel screwed over by the EA honor system In the past when I'd hear peeps complain I'd just think "big deal", guess I'll just have to say "big deal" too

    Yes Zen I also often have not recorded comp V or D but I didn't really see an increase of those last days...
    What I have seen is also games not recorded or recorded as not ended but the global V and D (and global honour) correctly updated.
