Axie Infinity players have been reporting a troubling bug that is incorrectly depleting their ranks through the ‘Victory Stars’ decay penalty.
Many reports have emerged on platforms like Reddit and Twitter. Players highlighted this issue and shared their frustration as they inexplicably lose their ranks.
It seems nearly everyone has been decayed in AxieInfinity regardless of the amount of games played before reset. Hopefully this gets resolved and stars get put back. Lots of time and money have been invested by many players. (Source)

Axie Infinity is developed by the Vietnamese studio Sky Mavis. It is an online video game based on non-fungible tokens. The game employs Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies to fuel its in-game economy.
In addition to its NFT integration, the game has similar traits with other online Android games.
It features an online ranked mode with a ‘Star decay’ system, which lowers players’ ranks if they fail to play a certain number of matches daily.
This issue has generated significant player dissatisfaction, with concerns growing that progress could be entirely wiped out if the bug persists.
Axie Infinity Victory Stars decay issue acknowledged
As of now, no definitive solution has been found for this bug. Nonetheless, the development team at Sky Mavis has officially acknowledged the problem.
The official Axie Infinity support page on Twitter posted the following statement:
We are aware that some users have experienced wrong Victory Stars decay after the daily reset. Rest assured, our engineering team has been notified of the situation and is actively conducting a thorough investigation to pinpoint and resolve the issue. (Source)
With the developers having acknowledged the problem, there’s optimism regarding the imminent implementation of an official fix.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as further developments arise.
