Played a little online when a guy came in with an insane rating. I took a picture: http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=get&tp=92800
I know that the rating isn't real http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif But is this a bug in the game or is this something you can modify on your own? It is quite irritating since it kinda ruins the reason for having a rating. Not very easy to check a persons strength by rating when it shows 88000 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
Anyway will this be fixed?
I saw this a few times on Chessmaster 9000 too, players had 10000 in rating or just an X, but didn't give a damn since the rating system was quite messed already then.

Looks more like a messed up database record than a deliberate hack. I mean, 90000 games played? come on...

I think that the online player's profile is corrupted. We'll look into it...
