I completed a contract but missed some bonus points, so I did the contract again to get them all. Each time I turned in the contract after getting the bonus points, the number of stars I have didn't change. It showed me that it gave me a star, but my stars were unchanged (3).

Is there a limit to how many stars you can have at once, or this just bugged?

Edit: here are some screenshots before and after, except this time it was doing the contract for the first time:

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4

It seems that it caps it at 3 stars, and throws away any stars over that amount. After I took the screenshots above, I bought the next sniper contract and then restarted TF2:

  1. 5
  • I don't suppose you have before or after screenshots?

If you switch contracts again, or relaunch TF2 with a new contract selected, the star count should update.

Contract updates not happening has been a problem for awhile, even after I've completely finished and maxed out all my contracts, I still get notifications saying 'contracts available' with the respective voice lines.

  • I haven't been able to even try this out, because now I can't even seem to make progress at all in order to get the stars (it doesn't register when I e.g. defend the objective for the defence contracts). It seems it's buggy as hell. I dunno why I'm surprised. What a waste of money.
