As you know, for quite some time now the scoreboards for LittleBigPlanet have been offline. We took them down because people were using a nasty exploit that allowed them to cheat the scoreboards and give themselves ridiculously high scores. Rather than have the scoreboards ruined forever, we opted to switch them off until we could make sure that issue was properly resolved.
I’m very happy to tell you that at 9:00am UK Time tomorrow (Wednesday 26th October), the servers will go offline for a few hours, and when they come back up the LBP2 scoreboards will once again work, hurrah!
You’ll also notice that we have already performed a cleanup of affected levels, removing cheated scores. This process might not have got everything quite right, so if you feel something has been changed unfairly, then you can let us know and we can look into it. Hopefully though most of the affected scores will be back to normal again.
Please note: only the LBP2 scoreboards will return tomorrow, the LBP1 scoreboards will remain offline for the time being, sorry!
Whilst we’re apologising, I’d like to take the opportunity to apologise for the very long down time of this feature. Sorry everyone… we really are truly sorry this took so long to resolve. Thank you for being patient in the mean time <3.
