Gotham City Impostors
Stat-Wiping Bug Affecting Gotham City Impostors
Written By
View author's profile

Monolith is investigating a glitch affecting Gotham City Impostors that wipes user stats and resets them to zero.

The six versus six shooter was released last week, immediately experiencing issues where purchasers couldn’t access the game. Now it seems there’s another problem.

Writing on the game’s official forums, Monolith stated that it had received reports of stats resetting, "usually when the upgrade from the trial to the full version occurs". The company then request further details from those affected.

Since that post, the forum has been stuffed with replies, with angry gamers racking up 70 pages worth of rage. Some poor souls had even paid for XP boosts, so the glitch leaves them out of pocket.

"Sorry about the inconvenience," said the forum administrator. "We're doing everything we can to get this fixed as soon as possible!"

Have you been affected?

1200 points for a game that should be free to play with micro transactions and now this, they really have shot themselves in the foot over this debacle.

@1 & 2 - There's nothing wrong with the DLC pricing. Nowerdays a game like that wouldn't sell enough to continue supporting it on it's own. Everything you can buy can be earned in the game just through playing, and it doesn't take that long!

The game is running on dedicated servers and offers gameplay that's more enjoyable than most big budget shooters released today. Not to mention the insane amount of content in terms of customisation that's on offer. Plus they've even announced DLC1 in March will be 100% free with a new map, weapon, gadget, customisation options, join in progress and matchmaking revamp. I wish gamers would start supporting the titles which deserve it, and not churned out corporate crap.

I feel sorry for the guys who paid to get double xp.

If they don't fix these issues they're going to start loosing players fast. I was going to buy this day one, kinda glad i held off now...

It's annoying when stuff like this happens to an arcade game because ppl see it's got problems and think its broken and never end up buying it. It's a real shame

This game is fantastic and so much fun to play. On my 360 I have experienced no problems but my brother on the other hand got reset on his PS3. He was almost ready for a promotion and right around the corner from having a gold persuader =/

if you guys are happy to pay 1200 points for a game that has you pay to unlock tiny details for in game content that dosnt effect game play then go ahead, its a free world after all. im basing my opinion of this why this should be free to play as the additional content costs up to $220, there are plenty of games on pc that offer this sort of payment structure with free to play games which im happy to play and pay for additional content.

1. The DLC is all stuff that can be unlocked in game, if you buy it, you are an inpatient moron with more money than sense.

2. This game is full of all kinds of game breaking bugs and glitches, it's really ruining an otherwise really fun game.

3. I really hope my stats don't get wiped, that will pretty much wipe out my patience with this game.

Had no problems at all on the PC version, just that the matchmaking can be a bit slow sometimes.

Wow, I'd be pretty pissed if all my stats got wiped. Kinda glad I didn't pick this up now. I was going to but it seems the community dies off so quick with multiplayer only arcade titles.

I am beginning to hate WB interactive. All these issues with Batman games and all they can say is whoops sorry. I myself am still upset losing my Arkham City save file for some bs reason. So I feel bad for all these people losing their stats in this.

I was enjoying this game in the demo but didn't buy it after this glitch happened to me, I lost all my kills but it kept my deaths for some reason. It is a good game though.

This is why I only purchase the full game AFTER I have gone back to the Xbox 360 dashboard.

I've had so many problems with the Beta of this... It wouldn't register kills with certain weapons which affected stats, certain combos of gear/attire were strongly over powered, quick scoping can be done in it(something that annoys me from COD titles), and people would camp because the maps weren't well thought out for it's game play style.. it was a fun play if you can look past that stuff but for me to buy the game, they need to fix this messed up stats crap!

Didn't something like this happen with Batman Arkham City. Whole files goIng back to 0%. Different developer but both published by WB.

These guys are assholes... they release this pile of crap game that has too many glitches to count, it's over priced, it's lame, clunky, unoriginal, uninspiring and they have like 100+ money grabber DLC items on the marketplace, all of which are useless junk to waste money on.

GO TO HELL with this crap.

Played the beta and decided this game wasn't for me. Probably better that way since I see a lot of complaints.
