My initial reaction is obviously shock; I was working hard towards a Rank 12 (was 3,000 kills away from it) on Mousy, and I never alted in my years of playing Stick Arena.
But for every legit account above Rank 10, there are 99 alted accounts that honestly do not deserve their rank. If I’m going to get reset for the sake of all those alted accounts being reset, I say that it’s definitely worth it.
I’m really glad XGen is also incorporating seasons into the Stick Arena leaderboards, so we don’t run into the same problem several years down the line when kills start to impossibly stack up on the Top 100. Great way to incentivize people to play at all times; this is how I would have done it as well. Awesome!
Really, all the initial disappointment over losing Rank 11 overnight is washed away by now. I hope all others who lost high-ranked legit accounts feel the same way. I look forward to what comes ahead in Stick Arena, (and in BBH)!
EDIT: I would also like to add that the stats reset gives us a GOLDEN opportunity to outright ban ANY AND ALL ALTING ACTIVITY. That would truly complete this stats reset movement.
Also, are Urinal games going to be allowed still? Urinal games give Lab Pass players an unfair advantage to get kills.
