Arms race glitch?

malditor

So I have been playing arms race. Things going well, fast games, good fun. Suddenly I am playing a match and notice I'm not getting any points towards my streaks. Other people are fine, at least the opponents are because they are calling in streaks. At one point I know I've enough kills to almost be to my escort drone and look down to see my progress bar hasn't moved. Then I died because I was looking at the bar trying to figure out what was up. I keep playing figured I just had a one time glitch. Unfortunately I start killing people again and watch in disdain as the progress bar stubbornly stays at 0, even after 5 kills. So, I leave the match knowing I'm glitched so I probably should restart the game. Low and behold I was host... So I'm guessing there's a host glitch that will sometimes keep you from accumulating any points towards streaks in Arms Race. Anyone else encounter this?

    What's your Gamertag?  Also, can you tell me which map this happened on and approximately what time?  Would like to check this out.

     

    Thanks.

      gt is mrmalditor, happened on grind. game shows 7:44 pm est in my recent games. Strangely enough when I watch it in theater mode it shows the streak bar filling up but while it game it did not show any progress. Probably unrelated but I first tried to check my elite page for the time of this game and it shows I haven't played any games in the last 7 days which isn't accurate

        Checked it out, and as you said, I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary. Will pass this along to our QA team to investigate. Feel free to PM me if you run into this issue again.

         

        Thanks.

          I appreciate you looking into it. It didn't happen again afterword, but after I left that game all matchmaking kept finding 0 games. I figured it was just something rare/minor but wanted to make sure.

      happens all the time, less now though. but seriously...this has been an issue sicne day one, the dev should have known exactly what was happening, bar doesnt move, but you are still getting credit towards killstreaks, you just cant see it.

       

      Dev didnt know what was wrong, thats the problem with the this game...community knows more about the **** thats wrong, tells the Devs about it for months, still dont know whats wrong...

    This happened to me before, close to the games launch. I went into theater after to show my friends, but it showed the bar moving fine then. It's a minor bug. Haven't had it happen since.

    I had this problem before arms race came out.

    The bar was not rising (visually) but I did get my scorestreaks.

     

    Think it was just a bug or something.

    my xbox freezes after every couple of games or so  since the arms race patch came out......... Really annoying!!

    It's happened to me before in a similar manner to dweez1988's experience.  It happened months ago, and has happened maybe three times.  The bar did not appear to fill but the points did add up and give my scorestreaks.  I'm sure your points were adding up as well and you happened to not accumulate a high enough scorestreak to find out.  After each game everything was fine again, and there were many weeks between incidents.  Like I said though it hasn't happened to me in months.

    This has happened to me as well, but it is just a visual glitch I believe, you can still earn your scorestreaks; it's just that you can't see the progress bar.
