    NFS Rivals: Banned players re-appear frequently

    Dear team,

    as far as I can judge on it, your current process seems to delete all banned players every night. Unforunately some of them re-appear periodically, when either their profile is accessed or updated. It even seem that one or the other managed to update their stats 'automatically' shortly after their deletion.

    This behaviour brings a lot hurly-burly into the stats, since their results have impact of all other players scores. It can be very annoing, if your trying to improve your results on some event, and after re-checking the stats one or two banned players pushed before you into the lists again.

    Is there a possibility to prevent banned players globally from being updated, accessed or entering the stats in any other way?

    Highly appreciating your work

    do you have a few examples of such banned players appearing again? we had some problems in the past which resulted in un-banning of players due to incorrect data provided by the game itself. maybe that´s the reason

    Dear all,

    according to soerens investigation the behaviour is not caused due to ban/unban issues. It is obviously a question of activity/inactivity.

    I'm reasoning the following:
    Any inactive player can be accessed and is afterwards listet in the stats. But if he actually doesn't play the game - meaning his data isn't updated by the game itself, he's removed from the stats again during nighttime.

    This obviously causes the sudden appearing/disappearing of several players.

    @soeren: Please correct me, if I'm wrong

    Many thanks to soeren for the investigation and clarification.

    Best regards, hoewer

    well, if i remember right then there was a "time-out" period of 60 days(?) - if the player profile is not updated(or player not online playing) then the ranking gets deactivated. as soon as a player starts playing again and the stats also get refreshed they re-appear in ranking.

    if i look at my own profile i haven´t played since over a year but the ranking is still active so i´m not sure about this whats displayed on other profiles like ">60 days inactive"
