New Halo Wars Historic Battle Map Pack Released

If you’re a dedicated Halo Wars fan, I feel your pain. I really do. In case the rest of you hadn’t heard, all of the leaderboards (single-player, multiplayer, and Trueskill, as well as matchmaking data) were recently reset to launch day status, and it's unlikely that the data will be restored. That’s almost five months worth of stat accumulation. Ouch.

 Microsoft's Major Nelson attempted to ease the pain, assuring Xbox 360 owners that this was "human error," a one-time, fluke occurrence, adding:

"On behalf of everyone at Xbox Live, I’d like to apologize for the incident and any frustration Halo Wars players have experienced in having their statistics disappear from the leaderboards. You can rest assured that we’re putting processes in place to prevent this from happening in the future."

On the plus side, at least the Great Leaderboard Wipe-Out of Ought-9 didn’t happen to big kahunas like Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Actually, my mind just collapsed in fear at the thought of what the reaction would be if that were to somehow happen.

Halo Wars players: How are you coping with your loss? What was your highest leaderboard ranking when the wipeout occurred?
