Site has been reset for June Season! With that, as promised, we have reset Site score (HTR Score) back to 0 for everyone. Some of you will be happy, some mad, but in the end this was done in the spirit of keeping it competitive. Good luck and godspeed!
We will be resetting our HTR Score with the restart of the next season, which should be around June 1st. This is due to some abuse, as well as some api errors that caused some bugs in our system and inflated a bunch of peoples site score and made them unreachable on the leaderboards.
