COD developers have been forced to temporarily disable Ranked Play in both Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone due to a global server issue. This decision, while necessary, has left many players in limbo, eagerly awaiting a resolution.


At the heart of this unexpected turn of events is a bug that has been resetting players' levels to one, effectively erasing all their hard-earned progress. Dubbed the "Minot Hawthorne" error, this glitch has had a significant impact, prompting the developers to suspend Ranked Play in Call of Duty: Warzone Resurgence and Modern Warfare 3. The suspension extends to Modern Warfare Zombies, affecting account levels, SR (Skill Rating), challenges, events, and the ability to track progress in battle passes.


The discovery of the Minot Myer error, which prevents the tracking of progress in various game modes, has understandably caused concern among the player base. Many feared that their progress might be lost permanently. However, the developers are actively working on an update to rectify the issue. Once this update goes live, it is expected that normal service will resume, much to the relief of the community.


Before the suspension of Ranked Play, players also encountered another glitch following a minor update on February 21. This glitch involved Cruise Missiles, a key killstreak in Ranked Play, becoming uncontrollable. Such issues highlight the challenges developers face in maintaining the complex ecosystems of modern video games.
