So I log on today to finally get that 100 cheevo and boom, rank reset to a level 1 from an 85.
 
I have never cheated, bridged host, glitced or anything like that. I pride myself on being one of the few people that played Gears fairly.
 
Epic can officially go eff themselves.

@natetodamax:  Did you guys clear your cache since the last time you played?  That clears all your updates and since this xp system was a patch, it supposedly resets your rank.  Either way, that sucks OP.  It's taken me forever and xp multipliers to get to 67.  I couldn't imagine losing 85 progress.

@Damien: No I didn't clear it, haven't done in a while. I played a quick match in the morning on this XP event and when I went back later in the day I was just reset completely.
 
I'm back to a 57 now because of the XP event, it also reset all the achievements. I had 76,000 + kills towards seriously 2.0, I am more annoyed about that than anything else now. I should have my 85 back and then some by the time this XP event is finished.

Do you think the resetting might have been intentional or some known consequence of recent patching? Maybe Epic cant fix it so they decided to do a 20x experience event to help the affected people catch back up.

On the 6x a few months ago i got up to lvl 80, then it got reset to 1, within a few days i was back up to 50.
Very first day of the 20x i got reset from 50 to 1.
I should be lvl 100 now.. I gave up, and am choosing to help my mate get his last few levels to get to 100, then glitch the achievement off him.
