Personal point totals on end of battle screens and hanger results screens are not matching after a battle.  see both attached pictures.

it's really unusual, and not new at all

 

it's got to be disconcerting to new folks

 

has anyone seen an explanation?

I have come to accept some of the small quirks in this game.  But it has always bothered me too.  It's always less, BTW.

This has happened since my first day in the game.

the answer is - if you remain until the end of the battle - 1K points are added to your total. 

 

this 1K points do not reflect in your personal Victory chat but added to your points. 

 

a way to say - 'Stay and watch the battle to the end'.

99% of the time, i stay until the end...  but it always drops, sometimes by a couple hundred, usually more

As it was said earlier this is not new at the moment. The right score is shown on the victory/defeat screen.

then how is the victory/defeat screen calculated, and how does the tab screen get calculated?

 

and why would there even be a one point difference, much less hundreds of points?

 

yes, kids... math is hard, even for a computer

 

BF, we're not complaining for ourselves, we're so used to it...  we're concerned for how it looks to new people

 

make it look higher on the victory screen, even if it's incorrect, and not a single pilot will ever question it

Inadequate answer.  The question is "Why are they different and what are you doing about it?"

Third'd - if that is possible this happened on the weekend and I did take screen shots - so what is WG going to do to correct their math Blind/Sonic? This is basic programming so any programmer worth their salt can fix this I hope.

I am confident in saying that this has been an issue for, at minimum, 5 months...

They're a lot of matches where the splash screen says X points, and a gold/silver/bronze icon if I finished near the top,

 

And then it's different when I get back to the hanger.

 

There's also many times I drop my bombs just before the game ends, and I watch them go off after they finish falling. Tiny explosions on the splash screen in the background. The game is not quite over when the splash screen pops up.

 

I just use the screen in the hangar. No doubt this could be done better, but it's a nit
