It probably won't even work....

Modding/Hacking - Happens on a daily basis. God forbid you end up in a modded server and they carpet-ban you.

Pirated Content - Okay, this will work, probably, but only because they're designed to shoot off flares on anyone dumb enough to bring their pirated copy online.

Unsupported Peripheral Devices & Applications - Tell that to the number of people using aim-bots.

Boosting - That's right, Treyarch! You keep those lower level players from getting better weapons so that the unlocks stay poorly balanced! Are they really going to monitor the game for people purposefully dying or getting achievements/challenges?

Glitching - Here's a better idea....make a game without game breaking glitches! Revolutionary idea, I know.

Offensive Behavior - Perma-ban everyone who does and your sales on the next COD game will half.

Offensive Live Streams or Unauthorized Live Stream Content - So? Anyone that cares will get a recording box and use a program to block out the user's name.

I just really hope that they get it right on pc. The fact that they are Treyarch dedi servers could actually help us. I know people are in a fuss about this, but look at CS:GO on pc. Other than there not being a good matchmaking system on competitive, the servers are all fine from valve. I don't have an issue with this if it curbs hackers, or at least hacked lobbies...

At the risk of sounding like a moron, can someone explain "boosting" to me, how do people exploit it specifically ?? i'm not to big on online games which is why I ask

No offensive words in Blops is like having no guns in Blops:

It's kinda assumed to be there from the git-go.

@Eyeco boosting is basically getting together with a friend(s) on a server and killing each other over and over to gain XP quickly, there are plenty of different meathods to do this but it's basically gaining XP from not playing the game in the intended manner.
Eyeco  +   1185d ago
thank you for the reply, I don't really see what's wrong with that tho ? I hardly see it as cheating
Legion  +   1185d ago

Boosting in effect skews the leaderboards and gives a false representation of a persons skills. The multiplayer world is just what it is advertised as... a game between multiple players. A person that boosts and effectively gets perks and/or weapons that they did not earn through skill and time played will tarnish the multiplayer arena.

You don't see it as cheating but it effectively is... if you are gaining an unearned advantage by manipulating via boosting then you are cheating.

If for nothing else but the fact that because you sat in a room and killed your friends 1000 times in a row gives you the highest position on a leaderboard. When those that play the game as intended can never achieve the same leaderboard rankings without themselves having to rely on unearned boosting methods.

A game is no longer fun when it effectively has been ruined by the fact that no relevance to earning any awards or rank is now factored. As the population of the game world will be that of those boosting to earn rank, awards and benefits.

I like those rules to be honest! Very surprised and proud with that decision! If all that will be monitored online gameplay will become not just good, but awesome!
Eyeco  +   1184d ago
Ok I understand fully now, and i agree with you to an extent, but why should anyone really care about there stats on the leaderboard ? just so you can swing your E-dick around and gloat about your K/D, are you getting paid ? do you get worldwide respect ? Do you look at the top players on COD and go "wow your so bada$$ i wish i could be like you one day.."

I'm sorry but it sounds pathetic , who cares about leaderboard stats, when i play an online game i just play it for the fun, for the objective based game modes, i couldn't care less where i rank among the 20 million cod players why should anyone else care ?

How is it any different from EA selling BF3 shortcuts ? at the end of the day , perks and weapon unlocks don't really give you that much of an advanatage, Knowledge of the map, sharp reflexes, and who you play the game with matter.
enkeixpress  +   1185d ago
Go on a 'team killing & trapping your team mates in corners' spree?? :D

I can't wait to further progress in my legendary on-going career with the OFC Camping Police on BO2, started around 3-4 years ago with MW2.. making sure that every player in the CoD community are kept moving & not staying in one spot as a advantage to get more kills! :P

Message me on PSN: 'OFCCampingPolice' if you wanna join :) <3

LOL wow a lot of people is going to be banned.
MikeMyers  +   1185d ago
Yes and once they do watch all the whining ensue about how unfair it is.
Legion  +   1185d ago
I see it every day on BF3 as people get their stats reset and then claim they did nothing wrong. Ok... maybe they boosted to get level 100 and got a 600 kill streak in a game... but hey... they did nothing wrong. haha As if!
moneybag123456  +   1185d ago
Lol, i got banned from Black Ops, gonna be hard to resist hacking this security free game
FarCryLover182  +   1185d ago
Security free???? They use Norton AntiVirus 2002!!!
pixelsword  +   1185d ago
Like he said, It's gonna be hard to resist hacking this security-free game...

just to get banned !

You should get him banned, and have him sell you the game for cheap.
JetsFool3500  +   1185d ago

Ok so I’m curious, how to hell are they going to know if someone is live streaming offensively when COD Black ops 2 is rating Muture and Online is not even rated but still rated Muture. the most poplar live streaming websites have a setting that the broadcaster can put that say must be 18 or older or something like that when basically mean there is most likely going to be language.


Content is generally suitable for ages 17 and up. May contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or STRONG LANGUAGE.

"Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB"

Warns those who intend to play the game online about possible exposure to chat (text, audio, video) or other types of user-generated content (e.g., maps, skins) that have not been considered in the ESRB rating assignment.

This is why ESRB ratings are on games.
Soldierone  +   1185d ago
They should honestly just rate online interactions as M by now. You can't play a game without idiots in any lobby.
Mr-Zex  +   1185d ago
How to get banned in Call of Duty: Play like a pro and get banned for apparently boosting, it happened to me and hey I really did appreciate that one month ban for playing the game legitimately. -.-
Soldierone  +   1185d ago
Sounds like Battlefield 3 to me with custom servers. Getting kicked for being "too good" lol So annoying.
TekoIie  +   1185d ago
Makes me genuinely wish EA charged $0.50 for kicking someone from a lobby XD

Seriously that would actually solve the problem!
Soldierone  +   1185d ago
@Pekolie, the funny thing is I can see the scrubs literally dishing out hundreds just to kick people lol
xAlmostPro  +   1184d ago
You were probably one of the guys going into games with a full party and trapping them in a corner the whole game, racking up 300+kills
knocknock  +   1184d ago
Agreed, happened to me 3 times, ive even had to made a second account to play on when banned. it sucks, cheating is rampant yet i get blanket banned for god knows what.
All i hope is the review system is good, before if you received to many complaints in a short time you get a temporary thats fair...ppl learn to loose with dignity, the amount of ppl that scream at me cheater or modded controller, errrr afraid not im just quite fast and have played fps religiously since goldeneye i see no point in cheating of any sort it would kill what little fun is left to scrap from these modern fed up with telling alot of my friends to calm down and stop acussing ppl of cheating when its probably just the connection thats to least they are not racist potty mouthed kids like so many a lobby...activision should tape these kids and send it to their parents.

"Any user who is found to have offensive or unauthorized content in their live stream is subject to penalty. Offensive content includes but is not limited to foul language, racially charged language, and nudity."

Wait, what? So if I'm doing a live stream, and I choose to swear, Treyarch is actually going to ban me from live streaming? Are you fucking kidding me? The game is rated M for Mature, has tons of swearing in both singleplayer and multiplayer, yet they're going to ban me for swearing... Have they lost their minds? What's the difference between viewers hearing me swear, or the in game characters swear?
jjb1981  +   1185d ago
I played blkops 2 for 2 years and there still is vulgar offensive banners. They don't bother at all but they are still ignorant
Hueynewton2012  +   1185d ago
Online babysitting, the COD community is pathetic. LOL
SITH  +   1185d ago
How do they detect a modded controller? Magic?
M_Prime  +   1185d ago
certain guns can only be shot so fast, with modded controllers they become almost auto. so there is that though if you are really really quick you can get close though not as close as a modded controller
SITH  +   1185d ago
Not every mod is a rapid fire mod. Some are for dexterity like mine. I have 360 controllers with the A, B, and X buttons on the bottom.

M_Prime  +   1185d ago
i think they are more about the rapid fire stuff. I mean the others is more personal preference, but if your controller lets you fire a gun that isn't meant to fire at a high speed its more cheating then anything.
Intentions  +   1185d ago
lol there is going to be bans day one, also in the coming weeks of launch.
Skate-AK  +   1185d ago
Hopefully there is less things rapeing other things in the emblems.
jmc8888  +   1185d ago
The whole swearing and vulgar bans are simply wrong and anti-american. Screw that stuff. We'll see if they're just reiterating what they already had, or are going to crackdown hard.

Land of the free my ass. Land of the imprisoned idiots who don't give a crap is more like it.

Gamerita  +   1185d ago
they are full of crap,every time they talk about hackers & the game end up full of them.i will never believe them again this is why i haven't pre ordered call of duty this year. no more hacking means no more call of duty.

plus since the real infinity ward staff left activision call of duty has died in my eyes, MW3 by sledgehammer games was a disaster compared to MW1 & the brilliant MW2.

farewell my favorite gaming franchise on PC,no more PC fps for me :(

oh well i look forward to PS4 & the 3 PS3 exclusives for 2013 + GTA gaming still good for me on the other side ;)
