Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Beta Reset Planned

badman's Beta Blog has word on plans for an account reset in the Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars demo, saying they are looking to stress the backend infrastructure for account registration and their ability to roll back statistics:
The wipe is currently scheduled for this coming Wednesday (August 22, 2007), at which point you will no longer be able to play unless you re-create your account in the manner described above. The statistics are also going to be reset that day.

The other test we’re running is currently taking place on a much smaller scale and concerns the statistics roll-back and restoration functionality. In the final game, we’ll be able to use this to combat statistics exploits, padding, and other unwanted activity. To make sure that rolling back and restoring statistics on a large scale is as seamless and robust a process as it can be, 5000 beta accounts have been randomly selected for this test and their owners have already been notified. Essentially, we’re be rolling back the statistics for those accounts by several hours, followed by returning them to their original, pre-rollback state. We’re taking great care during this process, but since this is still a beta, there is a chance that the statistics may be corrupted during the test.

It took me a week or two, but now I love this game. Resetting the stats, however, is painful. I may just wait until the game goes live to play again. The Valley map is getting a wee bit old. Hopefully there are a lot maps in the full version.

One thing I don't understand, and maybe one of you can answer, is about the stats. I see my achievements pop up from time to time, specifically the one about getting a faster lock-on time with the rocket launcher. Is that not a persistent item? I'm playing on ranked servers, but I know I've seen that at least a few times. I thought I would keep it between games.
