Getting Points for Boxes

I'm coming back to HTB after being off for a while. I noticed that when I do an Active box, I'm not getting points/credit for doing that box and submitting flags. At one point, Active boxes gave the points but retired boxes didn't. I have a VIP+ membership, so I'm not sure if that's the issue.

What am I supposed to do now to gain points to increase rank, or is there some other reason I'm not seeing points and ranking up?

    When you say you aren't getting points - can you clarify what you mean please?

    Looking at your profile, you are getting points for boxes:

    If you mean the total points shown under your username, then there is a scoring breakdown here: https://www.hackthebox.eu/home/users/points/3724

    The challenge is your actual score is linked to your ownership percentage. The calculation is:
    (userOwnPoints + systemOwnPoints + challengeOwnPoints + fortressOwnPoints + endgameOwnPoints + userBloodPoints + systemBloodPoints + challengeBloodPoints) * ownershipPercentage

    So, at the moment you are at 16.2% ownership, so your 159 total points become 26 points on the ranking scorecard.

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.

  • Thank you! I was looking at the Ownership ranking, and it was showing at 8%. I guess that ranking may not be real time? I just looked at it again, and it's now showing at 16%. I guess I'm doing the right boxes after all.

    Yeah - scores get updated at around midnight CET. Until then it all looks like it is the output of a random number generator.
