Ok Since I put in the new patch 1.03 I was at Lance Corporal, It still is and the little meter is not progressing at all. It's blank. What is wrong ? It is suppose to keep track of the progress Isn't it ? I've played in a lot of servers and it still wont progress.. Can anyone tell me if there having same problem or is there something that needs to be checked or what ?
And the Validating thing before you enter a game after it loads a map takes a really long time to verify. Why ?
Also it would be nice if they would up the running meter to load a little faster. It really sucks when you can't run. and it takes to long to get your stamina back !
Well, I have the same problem. I hit Sergeant right before the patch hit and I had an open unlock. After the new ranking system, I had 3 kills and gained 3 ranks. I logged out and found out I had 4 unlocks available, which sounded cool to me! The first unlock, which I guess would've been my one left over before the patch, had no effect. I chose the weapon I wanted, and the unlock did NOT take effect. Which really sucked, but, Oh well, I took it in stride and didn't worry about it. So, I unlocked my 3 remaining weapons. After a while playing, I noticed that I was not showing ANY progress in my progress bar. ALSO, after the new patch I checked stats websites like UBAR and others and found out the next rank after Master Sergeant should be First Sergeant... Ok, great, but the point requirements are the same, and according to the above mentioned websites I had all the criteria met to reach First Sergeant. HOWEVER, the next rank showing on my profile is Master GUNNERY Sergeant, not First Sergeant, and I'm not showing, like I said before, any progess towards any rank, let alone First Sergeant. Has ANYONE had this problem? Are there any solutions? Let us know if you have information, please!
Yes, I've noticed the progress meter to next rank is no longer working. I had some promotions (rank and unlocks) after the 1.03 patch and they worked for me. Like you, under version 1.02 I already had one unlock not choosen; then I updated and (in my case) got another unlock. Both the 1.02 unlock and the new 1.03 unlock worked for me.
The stats websites know the points to get to next rank so they simply look at your current points and create their own progress bar. Maybe this new bug is only a graphical bug, I guess I'll know when I get all the points for the next rank. I hope it works.
JerginsSoft, I'm not clear at what rank the game itself says you're at. According to UBAR, once it updates (in about 1 hour), you should show 1st Sgt. You need about 20000 points to get to Mstr Gunny Sgt. According to UBAR you have all but 1 of the unlocks, which makes sense according to your points and badges (*).
Mstr Sgt is 20000 points; 1st Sgt is 20000 points with all the basic combat badges (*); and Mstr Gunny Sgt is 50000. This according to UBAR's FAQ.
(*) Badges needed for 1st Sgt -- Basic Knife Combat Badge, Basic Pistol Combat Badge, Basic Assault Combat Badge, Basic Anti-tank Combat Badge, Basic Sniper Combat Badge, Basic Spec Ops Combat Badge, Basic Support Combat Badge, Basic Engineer Combat Badge, Basic Medic Combat Badge
Right now, I have Master Sgt. I have all the quals needed for 1st Sgt. according to Ubar, but so far, I have not been promoted, nor is my bar showing progress. This is getting annoying. If I sent an email to EA, do you think they would respond? (Please hold in your laughter, I know that seems like a dumb question! :D )
Since UBAR continues to show you're at 100% ready to go to 1st Sgt, I guess it is not updating because EA thinks you're still at Mstr Sgt. Strange.
Yeah, why not try customer support at EA? You also might contact UBAR. You could ask why their site isn't updating you, either.
Just as an update, EA has NOT gotten back to me on this problem. Has anyone else had success?
