I’ve this same kind of problem. For me some machine are rooted with a total of 0 point earned lol. I’m not sure how all this stuff works, but it seems to be clearly more diffucult to understand than ELO point ^’

If a machine or a challenge retired, then you lost the points. On your User mbz profile - activities you see the points of the active machines and challenges and the 0 points of retired machines.

To reach the next rank you must reach a specified total % of Ownership of active machines/challenges. But you don’t lost your rank if your %ownership decreases, you only have % to the next rank.

The 3 machines I mentioned in my post are active ones (not retired).

I know that points decreases when machines got retired…

Today i submitted opensource user flag and got -6 points !!! This is ridiculous ??!
I submitted root flag and got +6 points ------> as i haven’t solved that machine !!!

I’m talking about FINAL SCORE under my username. On activity tab it shows right +10,+20…
but doesn’t get added to FINAL SCORE

RANK PROGRESS, OWNERSHIP and FINAL SCORE counters are all broken

Is there any HTB technical stuff here ?? This is not normal at all !!!

The formula to calculate your “Points” is (userOwnPoints + systemOwnPoints + challengeOwnPoints + fortressOwnPoints + endgameOwnPoints + userBloodPoints + systemBloodPoints + challengeBloodPoints) * ownershipPercentage. Please note also the factor ownershipPercentage.

You get an higher rank if you reach a higher ownership (percentage of all active challenges and active machines). On the HTB Help page are the ownership percentage lower limits of the ranks:

Pro Hacker 45%

and the next rank: Elite Hacker 70%.

Your ownership percentage was above 45% in an earlier state. (You lost points and with that ownership percentage by retiring machines.) Now you ownership percentage is 14%, is lower than the lower limit of your current rank.
First you need to reach again the percentage ownership of your old rank, the 45%. Than you go into the direction of the next rank. If you reach more than 45% ownership, than your percentage to the next rank will be above 0.
