GRID rank reset draws racer ire

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 7 July 2008 07:41 GMT

As you can see from this post on the Codemasters forums, the firms decision to reset Race Driver: GRID users’ ranks as well as leaderboard times with a recent patch isn’t going down well with some.

Apparently there’s been some cheating going on, which may account for the decision, but for one gamer at least, his honest hard work to in reaching the top rank of Elite has now been wiped out.

“I think we’re all Entitled to an explanation from CM,” said gamer Osan-gar. “I don’t expect there to be another patch/ update; I suppose it possible, but not plausible. Regardless, we should be told what [happened]. If this was an unintentional result of the patch, then I’d say Codemasters needs to consider a name change. If was INTENTIONAL… Well, I’ll probably continue to be a fan of the game, and subsequent releases, (it IS a great game) but I’ll be waiting on USED copies dropping to around $20 before I buy a follow-up/ sequel. The pre- and post-patch issues are NOT encouraging me to support Codemasters with a new game purchase.”

We’ll drop Codemasters a line about this when the office opens.
