Career Mode Feedback

In the older thread on the issue here the mission-count scoring bug was speculatively described as "the same" as an older bug which generated the extreme high scores seen in the in-game leaderboards. The implication was that the older bug had been fixed but that this bug was a recurrence, which is not out of the realm of possibility.
Given that apparently there were numerous issues with the scoring system to the point that out-of-game support for examining the data was abandoned, I would guess that no-one has touched the scoring-related code for several years.
So I think the most likely explanation is that the bug became much more common after the Camel nerf release of early 2015.

I did not make note of it at the time, but the scoring bug appears to have begun with my first friendly-fire kill or at about the same time. I feel confident that the reset to normal scoring was caused by the second friendly-fire kill. Perhaps a sacrifice is necessary to invoke the blessing of Mars on a given pilot.
I have an open career slot, and will attempt a bug replication next session.

I doubt it - or at least it cannot be the necessary and sufficient condition. When I went out of my way to get a friendly fire kill for movie purposes nothing odd happened to my scores.
I maintain that it is rats in the server taking the odd byte or two.

In this instance, branjo327 reports his pilot stopped accumulating scores after a friendly-fire kill.
rats! of course, the little-documented rattus simaeronauticus!

would it be possible to add a custom bio feature for your pilot on career mode. also it is possible but very unlikely that you will encounter a real ace, i went up and shot down wait for it.... Ernst Udet!, the D.III had his paint job and everything!

Came back to the Career after like two years, and... Well, some things are still not polished. Right now I finally got promoted in the "re-mastered" British Career, and finally got the Military Cross. But I also got the Distinguished Service Cross.Problem? The date was 9th of June, 1917. One year before it was even created.
Other than that... I HATE THESE XXXXXXX Protection Patrols!!! They just drag on and on and on, often without any action at all. Because of that, I actually Escort Mission from "Sid Meier's Pirates!" 2004...
