    Default Leaderboards spamming

    Why are people allowed to jump shards to occupy more than one "Leaderboard" place?

    I see only 20 people on a "Top 50" list.

    EDIT: I only mean [Best Week]

    I agree.
    I think Trion should reset this each week or so if possible.. The same people can hold like 4-5 spots if they jump shard each week and I am not sure it gets reset even after 6 months or something way, way too long.

    I agree that some of them should be reset more often. This happens because Artewig@Hailol and Artewig@Deepwood are technically different characters, just cut and pasted. And I highly doubt anyone is intentionally shard hopping each week just to take more spots.

    They definitely do just look at "Top 50" all time heals, why would anybody jump shards 4x or even 6x times ?

    BTW I am not talking about weekly charts but "all time"

    Since NT I have swapped shards 5 or 6 times. It's very likely.

    Leaderboards are broken when people xfer shards, no one is intentionally spamming (at least I hope not because it's something so petty lol).

    They need to fix it on their end every once in awhile to clean it up. They haven't in awhile.

    I doubt anyone would jump shards to spam leaderboards. Most healing in a week is just how much you spam aoe heals (corrosive spores ftw) and how many wfs you do.

    Im also 3 times in the Top 50 listed. Its not really on purpose, just server trans because of guilds or buying essences.
    You do present it as though it was an purpose that people are listed twice or more..

    I think you havery to transfer the week you have that leaderboard stat to be listed multiple times. Meduza has transferred multiple times and is only listed once on each char. So what i was saying was while you have transferred multiple times it wasn't the week you had a top 50 all time leaderboard stat. I wouldn't be surprised if some people transferred just to get listed multiple times.

    No one is doing that. There is just a "bug" with the leaderboards when you transfer; It retains the original char@oldshard rather than replacing it with char@newshard.

    It's something that's been an issue with the leaderboards for a LONG time. It's really apparent right now because it hasn't been cleaned up manually in a long, long, long time.
