I own KI on both Steam and Windows Store. I recently learned that KI’s ranked mode is not shared (but exhibition is), and re-installed the Windows Store version once more. And lo and behold, there are actually people playing it. Which is splendid, I really enjoy KI.
However every time I restart the game, my ranked progress disappears, and I end up with the same 316 points in Bronze. I’m not that bad any more, I ranked that low on the MS version, and then played Steam for a hundred hours or so and got Master there. I can even win games off people with Killer stars (let’s say 20% win rate or so - bad but not Bronze).
Which brings me to the second issue: I keep getting matched against Bronze and Silver players, and they don’t find that very funny. I can understand. My win rate in the last 100 games must be 80%+, not because I’m good, but because I get matched against people with a profile level in the single digits. It’s absolutely unfair: You probably all agree that winning against someone literally mashing buttons is not very difficult.
And here comes the third issue: They keep rage-quitting on me (well d’uh, I can’t even be angry at them for it). One guy quit on me in the lobby about five times in a row. Now I got a probation warning (“too many people have quit against you!”). I am getting punished because my opponents quit on me?
I have contacted XBox support (they can’t help), MS store support (they can’t help), Xbox Twitter (told me to post in the dev support forums) and KI twitter (no reply).
Please fix my account? The MS store works, everything seems fine, but my rank just keeps resetting.
Also the Steam version seems to have trouble connecting to ranked, but then nobody is on that anyway. Would be nice if that was a usable mode as I own more characters on Steam than on the MS store. But I’ll live if it just works!
