Hey, A friend of mine has this strange problem that shows that he is a Private in the scoreboard while in servers instead of Lance Corporal as he in fact is in the BF2 Stats (I entered the same server as his and indeed his rank badge was a private's badge). He is afraid that this may affect his appliance for Commander since it seems it's considering him as a a lower rank player. It always was showing that he was Lance Corporal just fine before he came into my house and I let him play a bit with his account. Could this be the cause of this mess?
I tried using his account again on my PC and when I joined a server all seemed right as I viewed the scoretable it showed the Lance Corporal rank badge...
What does this mean? Does EA keep an history of IPs and saves the rank progress into them or something like that?
I didn't make it!
This might be because the server he was using was an unranked one as your unlocked rank usually only shows up if you join one of the ranked servers.
hope this helps
*problem Is Solved*
That happened to me a bunch of times...even re-locks my unlocks. It goes away after a while. Best I can figure, it's a glitch in the account server.
Yeh it's a glith of some sort. Just get off the server log off and then join another server should be fixed.
