Why did my Gears 2 rank reset on me? And my achievment glitched to..

So yesterday, I go to play gears 2, and I see that i'm level 1. I lost my level 25 for no reason, and if there is no way to restore my rank, i'm DEFINITLY not playing this game anymore. Has this happened to anyone? Is there something I can do to fix it?


Also if you can help me fix this problem.. My Training grounds achievement also didn't unlock. It has checkmarks on all of them, but no achievement. I've tried clearing my cache, and it didn't fix it. For the love of god can someone help me on this to...

This has been happening to lots of people and there is no known cure. It is becoming a pandemic. Watch out.

Well, say goodbye to Gears of War 2 then. I've heard things about switching hard drives and playing while guests are signed in, who knows though.

So many people are glitching maybe their messing up the servers, and cross intefering with connections. Im no einstein but it sounds kind of logical.

The second part from comes using the training ground glitch to level up.
Basically it copies another war journal from a person who you do the glitch with and replaces it with yours. Also a direct result of pulling ethernet cords while playing GOW2

Probably something you didn't want to admit, even if it's very obvious, especially on this forum.

Happened to me, and I was level 25 also.

My Xbox froze after I completed split-screen horde with my brother and I turned it back on and my War Journal and Rank had reset....

So I gave up on Gears 2 online.

Sounds like just another way for gow2 to loose fans quickly when ppl worked so hard to get their rank just to see it flushed down the drain with no cause or reason to why and that it cant be fixed. if that ever happened to me my disc will be in peaces and i wouldnt care at all. If gow3 is anything like this the hell with epic im done with them as i am with bungie

I love it when MS decides to stick it to the guys who make gaming horrible. Why glitch, is it that important to you? Guess it doesn't matter anymore huh, lvl 1. lol

I know how everyone here feels Lastnight I was playing gears perfectly fine and I was currently rank 27 (I know its not that high but took me a while to get to) anyway I switched off to go eat and when I turned back on I'm rank 1 with achievment progress back to zero on everything even my seriously 28,000 kill i had has gone back to zero What the hell happened? Gears was the only game I played only mainly because I wanted the rank 50 and 100 achievments but the constant lag and problems was really putting me off but now this has happened I just feel like giving up I've never glitched or cheated to get an achievment because its stupid and its not really an "achievment" if you cheat its just a number and nothing else so why has epic screwed me over? Is there really nothing you can do? If my rank can't get back to the way it was and my achievment progress doesn't go back then im saying a big F*** U to gears 2 and I'm not gonna bother playing it anymore

It's unfortunate (if you really are someone who hasnt glitched) that this has happened to you - if it happens to me i'll take a route of many emails and phone calls to sort it out. xD

Yes I really haven't cheated or glitched anything. I wouldn't be on this website posting in forums to find people to help get multiplayer achievments with if I could cheat. Cheating is pointless and only complete dickholes cheat so no i dont cheat. Trust me I've tried emails and everything on epic and the gears site and no replies. Its total bullshit and as much as I really liked playing gears online just feel like carrying on is useless now If anyone here wants to team up though who has lost there rank add me and we can get back to the level we were at again

well if thats the case and you didn't glitch, then phone MS and let them know. I know i didn't glitch and nothing has happened to me. I doubt they would just pick you for no reason, oh wait, i guess your brother did it when you weren't home. Damned glitchers.

So it seems you can get screwed either way rank wise. You play legit, and might get your rank reset. You glitch to lvl 100 and your gs gets reset. Wow Epic, good looking out. I don't condone the glitchers whatsoever and hope they all get reset, but Epic needs to fix this random rank reset shit because its ridiculous that they punish the glitchers but don't seem to give a crap if the game somehow resets your lvl if your playing legit. It almost seems like everyone is punished just for playing on-line.

No.

If this guy had glitched and been reset, wait a couple of weeks. If his gamerscore is 0, we know he glitched. If its still at what it is now, you know that he's legit. I know this has happened to legit people so don't blindly accuse people...

I feel your pain

I'v never actually felt the need to register with this website but i use it quite often; so i guess i'm long time lurker and not so long time poster.

Anyhow, i can't believe all this rubbish i'm reading about people getting their data erased for glitching. All my Gears 2 data was erase after playing Insane on Co-Op with my bro (he was using his profile via memory card)

I had no played online even once but i had gotten to level 50 horde via friends playing on their profile using the same xbox. So no glitches. I wouldn't waste my time glitching anyway; i'm not a gamescore addict.

Well i posted some stuff on Epics offical forum about this problem and i tried emailing them just like the OP. I got nothing but several other users were reporting the same problem. This was no longer than 1 month after the release of the game and frankly i can't believe they haven't fixed it yet. Although they have not blanked the issue they certainly aren't making a song and dance about fixing it. If anything i think they are trying their best to sweep it under the rug.

I came here in the hope of finding out if the game was 'fixed' yet because i would like to try and complete it on Insane mode again (i'd have to unlock it first thanks to loosing my data) By the looks of it though it is only getting worse, affecting more and more people. For this reason i'm seriously disgusted at Epic for treating their customers this way.

what is it that got erased for you? is it the achievements you already unlocked or are you talking about the game stuff like kills

Isn't it microsoft that were the ones that did this and not Epic? I'm not sure how it works with this stuff
