Ok, so I've tried checking my stats for my username/UID from this site and they don't appear. I know it says you need atleast 100 Global Points. I am a Staff seargent right now, and I can't view my stats here. I've viewed them on other sites, but it won't work here for some reason. I can even view my friend's stats.

Any ideas?

When asking for help on these types of issues it really helps us if you supply your username/pid. However, since the expansion came out there has been an issue with the feed from EA. If you have never checked your stats here then it will not be in the cache and since EA's feed is partly broken it might not be pulling your fresh stats. Just be patient and hopefully the feed will get fixed tomorrow at some point.

To clear it up for me:  Does the EA problem only effect SF stats, all stats for people who have played both or all stats regardless?

I am seeing missing items from both BF2 and BF2:SF.

could well be. maybe chuy can verify if anyone's stats in the database have updated since the expansion came out.

the stats feed from EA is one feed for both games ( BF2 and the Expansion ) though. As voodoo has said, we are waiting for word from EA and hopefully the feed will be fixed tomorrow.

to be honest, I didn't expect the implementation of the expansion into the xml feed to go over without any problems anyway.

The bug (I would say 99% of the time), effects ALL stats for any player who has played SF...  so you play one round, then go back to BF2 maps, and it's hosed.  Now, I have seen *one* player on BF2s.com who had theirs update (they had some SF badges), but that's it (and why I said, "99%").

Well, it isn't exactly just playing in SF that is breaking the feed. It does have something to do with Special Forces, but my stats have updated and show two specialist badges (though at this point I have all of the special forces badges...) My guess is the new weapon unlocks have broken something, since I know I played a few rounds of SF and got some awards before going back and getting my new unlocks. If this is the case then your stats will continue to update as usual on bf2s.com until you start unlocking the new weapons. (this is all just speculation at this point, and rather futile since hopefully we will hear something from EA about what went wrong and how soon they can fix it.)

hmmm,
Haven't got a clue what's going on but my stats froze 3 days ago after playing SF and haven't moved since.BFHQ is fine but I'm missing 500+ points on here.Other sites are carrying the correct global score.Haven't checked all the ribbons and medals because I don't give a toss about them so can't give any info there.

2-Jagger is my nick and BFHQ score is 10,055 (score here 9.511)

Nope, Voodoo...  mine froze up the instant I started playing SF, and I still haven't unlocked any of the SF weapons yet (and at that time, hadn't chosen any additional BF2 weapons yet... I had 1 unlock saved, then after the first time on and relogging had something like 4).

Weird, well it is definitely something within SF that breaks it because some of us have a few badges from Special Forces before our feeds went AWOL.

Yup, who knows.  For all anyone (not at EA) knows it could be tied to the first time you use that "UNKOWN"* weapon that's been added...  or playing a specific map, or any various stat becoming non-zero.

*Before anyone says anything, I know it's misspelled ;P

Ok, sorry for not supplying my username/UID. I hadn't really thought much about it being due to the SF expansion, considering I had never checked my stats here until after I had played SF since I didn't even know about the site.

Thanks for your reply.

My username is Zedman and my UID is 43470393

Mine worked after i unlocked two weapons and got three sf badges. It was working fine then just stopped. Anyway I was curious if their was any news over when this bug was going to be fixed.

Lazarus stop spouting off about things you don't know to be true. There are tons of people with partial SF updates (me included), and my stats updated for more than 24hr after playing my first round of SF (and getting some badges).

chuy has been working on it since the feed was bugged when SF came out. It surely will be fixed, simply because this site wouldn't make sense if we cannot display up-to-date stats.

I'm also sure once it has been fixed there will be a big announcement, as this issue obviously does bother the community quite a lot.

Erm, midgetspy, 1% of more than 250,000 is tons of players...  but the actually percentage isn't really important.  Most of the people I've seen who haven't seen updates after playing SF have zero SF stats.  If you've seen a lot more people than I have with SF stats, then maybe it's 80%/20%, or some other ratio.

"99%" is to say that for almost all that I have seen, once they played SF, their stats never updated again...  but also recognizing that there are exceptions to that, so it's the usual case, not an absolute.  Is that untrue?

I did say as an absolute that it wasn't tied to having unlocked SF weapons.  I think I can say that with a bit of certainty, as I have not had an update since I played SF, and to this day haven't unlocked as single SF weapon, and did not unlock any of the BF2 weapons I was still missing until several days after I installed SF, and my stats broke.

Beyond that, everything else I said was an "I dunno", which I hope I can say with a fair bit of authority, mixed in with a bit of off-the wall speculation, and presented as such with phrases such as "for all we know...".

Either way, every bit of all of this is speculation, and just an exorcise in rhetoric, as nothing we say here will help EA/DICE fix the problem wherever they are. ;P

EA probably aren’t even bothered, its been a week and they still haven’t answered to say either way. This could go on for a long long while...

If I recall correctly, in my case... only played SF and my stats where updated once... it's when I played one round on a BF2 rank server that my stats stop working. Yes I unlock all my toys prior to that.

Dude... it's only been 2-3 business days...  and I'm not sure Wednesday really counts (Chuy, what day was it you realized the EA feed was flubbed, and e-mailed 'em on it?), and Monday they may have all still been tranquilized with tryptophan poisoning.

Remember, US company, Thanksgiving, 4 day holiday weekend.

I knew about it much sooner than last thursday, but I didn't even bother emailing them till early on monday morning cause I was well aware that nobody was in the office.

It's a rather pain that the only time I really get to spend updating the site is on the weekends when no one at EA is workin on their end of the system. Kinda makes it tough (for me.)

Curious what the problem is.. It seems other sites are working ok. One difference is the others aren't displaying army stats for SF. Have you checked out the XML file and looked for any odd characters or XML &codes? perhaps omit some of the army elements? Other than that It seems really odd that it's completely EA's problem.

other sites are working because they have reverted back to an older version of the feed, which has not all of the stats in it. those who were using the "official" beta-tested xml feed from EA are all fucked.

chuy has obviously chosen not to go to an older stats feed. Pesonally, I am fine with that.

He has also made it absolutely clear that he has triple-checked that it is a problem on EA's end. As Lazarus has said, today is only the third business day after Thanksgiving. Chuy e-mailed them on monday. Realistically, I wouldn't expect a solution before friday, if not next week. Unless, of course, it is something so utterly simple that it can be resolved within 5 seconds.

But somehow I doubt that.

I'll put my money on next week or even the week after....

1 week to figure out how to fix it.... 1 week to fix it and test it... yup I'll say 2 weeks... that's if they are working on the problem.

I wouldn't count on it, EA has no incentive to help any 3rd party site. Especially when most of them are functional. I hate to sound like a prick but coders have such god complex's (I am a coder also I know).

1 1/2 week than, test... Since when have 'they' tested anything. Isn't it obvious that 'we' are testing it for 'them'.

If I understood it correctly, the feed is not only for BF2s... In the end, 'they' are going to enable us to get a dump of our stats... So it will happen... Someday;

Cheers,
