Reverted back from sixth to third promotion?
I have ~100 hours in Alien Swarm and last time I played it was almost a year ago. I just noticed I got reverted to level 27 of third promotion and I used to be level 27 of sixth promotion. Now I have the possibility to promote myself to level 1 of fourth promotion.

Anyone else had this problem? I earned my sixth promotion fairly and I don't want to lose 81 levels of progress.

Thanks for help.

Yes, right before I earned the 100,000 kills achievement, AS decided I was a newbie and ditched all six of my promos. They mysteriously returned about a week later, but I re-earned nearly half the achievements before that. XD

Well, that sucks. I start playing after nearly a year, everything is fine and next day I'm demoted. So weird.

the only way this could have had happened is if ur steam cloud connection was not working properly, or u turned it off for the game.

Well, my Steam cloud has been turned off for a while, but I can't remember if it used to be like that about a year ago. I'll try turning it on again and see what happens.

Edit: That worked. As soon as I turned cloud back on and started the game, it told me files are out of sync and I downloaded the file from cloud (dated April), now I'm back at sixth promotion. :)

Good! Idiot here never thought of trying that, I just hoped it would fix itself. XD
