Well I just got onto Reach after the maintenance last night, I read on the forums that the cR cap was now at 200k, and yes, it was, however, I did not receive any sort of message indicating I had hit the cap, I just simply stopped gaining credits.
I then proceeded to check if Commendations were frozen after users had hit the cap, and sadly, they are still frozen.
I played a game of Score Attack once I was capped, I had 27934 kills with Precision Weapons in Firefight, I got one kill with a DMR, quit and saw I was still on 27934.
To double check, I then started another game, played through the whole thing and then checked my Commendation, still 27934 kills.
I made a video of the one DMR kill and quitting and I am currently uploaded to YouTube.
Sad to say that this problem that came around with the cR cap bug, is still around after the cR cap is fixed.
Also, it seems that when you hit ‘Turn-In’ on Custom Challenges, you now instantly receive the cR, this I believe was to stop the Custom Challenge boosters getting much more cR than they should have been, which is a good change, if it was intended, unknown.
Link to YouTube Video: Commendations still freeze after maintenance - 26/1/12 - Apologies for blurryness, was recorded off an iPhone and I might have added a ‘Blur’ effect to the whole video on mistake.
