I notice that, occasionally, I won't see any messages saying that I'm receiving points for kills/building/caps/etc. Is this a bug and am I still receiving my points even when it is not being displayed? I know that there is a punishment where an admin can disable point gaining for a disruptive player, however I've never been reprimanded for anything, I do not cheat, and I do not exploit anything.

I've seen this happen a few times and it will eventually start displaying my points received messages. However, tonight I noticed that I was on the verge of hitting 40,000 points, yet my points suddenly stopped appearing on the screen. I was somewhere around 30,950 and they stopped showing up, yet everytime I died I was still receiving the message for LOSING points. I went through about 15 kills before dying when I was noticing this, and when I saw my message for losing points, I noticed none of those 15 or so kills had been registered for points, but my deaths were counting as lost points.

Is this a bug or am I being punished for something? I have no clue what I would be punished for, I never harass anyone unless they're obviously being a jerk to people, I don't cheat, and I don't exploit the points system. Steam ID is STEAM_1:1:12050464 17:08 126 0 active

Thanks.

Hmm. Well, I know for a fact I am actively losing points for negative things such as dying or destroying engineer buildings (when I built them). But it kinda sucks to have my points not being registered when I earn them. It's bad enough that people with a lower score get 25 points for their luck kills on me...and that takes away from my points.

It could've been unlucky timing of HLStatsX going down, coming back, repeat. If it continues, let me know and I will yell at them.

Will do. It's happened on and off for a long time. If it's just the server that records the stats going down, then I understand.

So can I too at just ONE PENNY PER POINT! I'm kidding, but if anyone really wanted to buy 100,000 points at a penny per point I'd be forced to consider it. It's hard to turn down $1000 for something so trivial and easy to arrange.
