Default COD Black Ops Big issue.

Just playing with the guys, Went and changed my Perks, Started the game, Bam All gone.

WHen i say gone im mean ALL gone.

I kept my Rank But lost all my life time points, awards and such, Lost all my $$, Lost all my kits, "0" hours of game play, Prestige #8


Steam has yet to respond 5 days later.

I Thought Steam backed up these files, I could be wrong.

Is this honestly a Steam problem over Treyarch?

My understanding is that steam stores the saved info...

that should be correct, all info should be tied to the op's account, same as if you format and reinstall. only thing i could think maybe he accidentally or purposely (no offense) went into a hacked server and they reset to 0?

I play on ICE server... My clans server.

I have 60+ games on my steam account, I would not risk the account for Hax.

Your ID is saved locally on your computer, that ID is matched to the treyarch servers to fetch your stats

its tied to your account, nothing more, not a name. i can change my game name at any time

when i reinstall MW2, i get back all my stats, perks, rank everything

same with BO, i've reinstalled it already and so have others
its saved on THEIR servers, but i think treyarch is who you need to contact

i would, just to cover both areas
since steam has not gotten back to you
