In our attempt to reach the ODST Firefight leaderboards, my friends and I made it our goal today to reach a score of 10 million. We started a little past 12 PM EDT and played through 11 PM. By the end of the game, after spending all our lives, we had a score of 11,156,131. All of us are across town from each other, so we were all playing the game on our own Xbox 360s over the Internet. There were no connection problems throughout the entire game. In fact, since we were each connected over the Internet, if there WAS a connection problem, the game would have ended right there and thrown us ALL out of the game. About 10 minutes after waiting for our score to appear, we started another round of Firefight to check is the servers were backed up. We got one kill, then ended the game. Not surprisingly, the short game of ~500 points appeared, but there is still no trace of our 11.1 million score? It's extremely frustrating and disappointing to literally waste over 11 hours, reaching a new record, only to have it not count. The bug is not with us, but with the game or the servers. Firefight is a huge part of ODST, and the stats are a huge part of Firefight. It's quite obvious Bungie wants to put a lot of emphasis on scores, motivating people to play the game with leaderboards, service records, and "flaming, red-eyed skulls". With this bug, the motivation is gone. So, why is this happening? Why does this bug even exist? Is it something we are doing? Is it flagged for review? Will it ever post? Is anything ever going to be done about it? I've taken several photographs for proof and we have uploaded a film of the game (99.4 MB) for [b]irrefutable[/b] proof. Links are below.
