ROCK BAND SCORES HELP
This site has a number of features, such as checking your Rock Band
or Rock Band 2 scores for a solo instrument, or as a band. In
addition, you can compare your scores to those of a friend, find new
friends who have a similar collection of downloadable songs, or check
to see which downloadable songs are the most popular.
Here you can check your best scores for each song you've played.
- Player/Band Name: Enter your username here if looking for solo
scores, or your band's name if looking for band scores. Usernames for PS3
and Xbox users are your PSN/Xbox Live account names. Usernames for Wii
players are apparently entered the first time you play Rock Band.
Unfortunately, Wii usernames are not unique, so you may see scores that
are not yours if your username is common.

If looking for your whole band's scores, select "Band". To see scores for
all Solo instruments, choose "All Solo".

you wish to see scores for.

select a difficulty different than what you played, the number of stars
awarded may be far too high or low.

getting band scores. Select "none" if you do not have that instrument
in your band. The star column is the only one affected by these choices.

- Update: Click this to request that the scores for this song be
re-pulled from the rockband.com leaderboards. Requests may not be handled
for quite some time, depending on the number received and on the speed
of the official leaderboards.
- How are scores updated?
There are two methods. First, an automated process regularly updates the
scores for any song when the scores get to be too old. This process goes
on continuously. Secondly, users who do not want to wait for these
automatic updates may request a quicker update by clicking the "refresh"
button next to a song. This schedules the song's update to happen much
more quickly, usually within a few hours.
- Why is a score shown for a song that I have not played at the
difficulty I selected?
The official leaderboards do not record the difficulty level with your
score. Therefore, I have no way of knowing what difficulty was selected
when you played a song. The "difficulty" selector box is simply for
computing the number of stars that your score would be worth at that
difficulty level. If you played a song at a difficulty other than that
selected, the number of stars computed will be incorrect, but you score
and rank will still be accurate.
