Arceus Posted November 2, 2015 Share Posted November 2, 2015 Mod Balance:Basically, if you're free-to-play for a long time and you're not actively playing, your rank isn't saved - it's to keep the hiscores free of inactive accounts.In this case, Forsberg888 hadn't been logged into for ages putting it close to the time-out for appearing on the hiscores as it was a F2P account. On login it refreshed the ranks to put him at the bottom for his XP total, that's how the hiscores were written, deliberately because permanent status on the hiscores is reserved for members.I'll check with our web team, but I'm confident that changing his rank to #2 would require us to rewrite the entire code for the hiscores, which obviously isn't feasible.https://www.reddit.com/r/runescape/comments/3r7xb5/forsberg888_logged_back_in_and_got_rank_27_he/cwloklgOkay if that's how Jagex wants to play ball that's fine, except they claim individual 200M ranks are also not preserved, and according to another TIFer they are, since he lost ranks at 200M. So it appears there is some confusion internally with regard to how their own hiscores work. Oh and boy, Reddit looked pissed there...
