Was just playing, nothing new, and my badass ranks went from 28k to 8k. This is after the patch, and I still have all my customizations. The game also gave me 141 tokens to spend, but I have no idea if that is how many I actually earned. Anybody got a reason?
I don't think they fixed it from happening again, but they put in the means to get ranks back for a character who had already earned them or something.
So, like when the patch that "fixed" it came out, if you still have other characters that have lots of ranks to get you back up there you should just load them up and save/exit to see if that gets you back to where you were.
Oddly enough, when I loaded my up my commando it put me at 20k badass rank and gave me another 99 tokens.. it still wasn't what I had before, but I loaded all my other characters after that hoping it'd get me back to where I was, but no dice.
However, it did let me reallocate some of the badass ranks into stuff thats actually more important than some of the more random things I put it in... so the stuff I did put it in now is up to around 10-11% like it was before so it wasn't a complete and total loss. but golden keys can never replace stat increases unfortunately.
Anyway, I hope you end up getting some more back like I did. I'll post if anything else happens.
