The Rankings ARE updating.
It's just that Nexon has allowed so many people to make so many accounts and so many characters that their Rankings software is way, way behind.

Every time some meso farmer cabal in China makes 10,000 more bot accounts to steal mesos from the game, it slows things down by 10,000 more characters that have to be updated. Every skript kiddie who makes a dozen "look at meh, ima leethaker" accounts slows things down by a dozen more.

Every time Nexon releases a new rehashed character class and everyone jumps on to bandwagon half a million new characters they'll play for a month until the NEXT rehashed overpowered character class is released, it slows things down by another half million updates that have to be made before it can get to updating YOUR character.

The rankings have to update EVERY character, whether you're playing it currently or not, so if you have 15 characters, times all the millions of other people with multiple, multiple accounts, that adds up to an awful lot of updating the Rankings software has to generate.

All those old accounts that haven't been played since Beta, and the people have all grown up and had grandkids and are never coming back, THEIR accounts have to be updated constantly, even though the characters never change.

It just can't keep up, and Nexon appears to have given up trying to improve it.
So we just have to wait.

My main character is currently updated to how he looked about a month ago, my Evan is still naked from when I moved equips around in the middle of the summer.
I don't expect it to ever catch up.

Yeah, apparently the level is just one data point, so they can keep that up to date, but the picture is made up of so many different items it probably takes it forever to copy it all from the character database.

@Blipsy For sure... fixing the Rankings software would cost them money, and they get nothing in return for the bottom line, so...

@BobR: I thought the images were 'updated' everyday. (Until it stopped in the past few months)
