GR - "The global number one ranked player for Black Ops 2 on the Xbox 360 had to reset his stats due to internet attacks..."
man, if this is real then W-T-F....why? seriously.
Maybe now the kid can go back to school and get some education or even see what the world looks like from the outside of his house.
You're on a game site comment section calling out a nerd... You must be soaked in irony right now.
Kurt I don't think you realize how many hours a day are put into being at the top. Essentially all free time is spent playing a single game and doing NOTHING else.
So what, other people spend their life collecting stamps or old records which you could call just as dumb. For the record, I've never even played a single online game of COD.
Obvisouly Kurt missed the point here.f789790 hasnt.The fact you have to put in pretty much night day hours to be at the top doesnt mean you are a nerd which I never implied here but it means that you have a serious addiction and nothing else in the world matters.Which is where my comment was going.GTF outside and live a real life.Masa2009 just tells me that he has no idea of what comparing apples to oranges means.People collecting items is a whole different thing they dont spend every winking moment doing one thing to be on top.I play alot of games but being educated and going outdoors is a little more important then sitting hours on end destroying my brain cells to be on top of a game.Theres more to life then just that.
LOL @ people who think collecting stamps is the same as spending 20hrs a day on CoD. DOUBLE LOLskiiissssssss!!!
I think you need to watch a few new TV channels. There are hobbies that do the same thing... Collecting stuff can take all day and night depending on what it is. Organizing it and learning when and where to go. There are jobs for people doing this..... Its no different than being a gym freak. If you are at the gym 7 hours a day anyone can say "go do something else" Too much of anything can be criticized....
"Have Call of Duty players stooped this low that they'll harass people that are better/ranked higher than them? " Lol welcome to 2008
The comments about him being a nerd and not having a life are really immature and uncalled for. The dude clearly put a lot of time into the game, if that's what he wants to do with his time then more power to him. It's pretty messed up of people to do this to him.
Atleast finbar can be on a video game website and still not be an obessed gamer. Grats for people who are enlightened gamers.
and people pay for this? what garbage
What, for the internet? Did you read the article? his IP was hacked, not his xbox live account. This can happen to anyone online, PSN or Live. Learn a little before your comment.
@jeff He's talking about P2P. Edit: Nvm, mithril beat me to it. Read below.
ok, it's possible to know ip of other player on both gaming network. But only on games that are P2P. Play games with dedicated servers, your data is not sent directly to another user so your IP is not visible to other user.
console users don't understand that concept yet.
Because the 360 doesnt believe in dedicated servers ... Sony's the only one that really uses them this Gen on consoles from what i've seen.
The platform (ie MS or Sony) doesn't control game servers, the publisher does. Activision doesn't use dedicated for the call of duty series. And in most cases they only use servers to host playlist settings, lobby creation and the searching platform.
I hate cod.. But I have to say that sucks... :(
every thing have to turn into console war on this site no need for those fanboy fights every time a problem appear on a rival system
http://n4g.com/news/1151169... The next Xbox to use Win8 kernel? Scratch my last comment, this would be the reason not to get the next xbox. We're all familiar with the history of MS and Win security. right? http://www.ign.com/articles... "Both the Xbox 360 and New Xbox versions of Destiny will be cross-compatible. ****It’s all the same Xbox Live, after all"*** Oh it's all the same alright, security flaws and all. Like I said show me PROOF that this is reproducible on PSN; provide me the links that show a users personal info was acquired in the PSN attack until then it's all just BS.
Dude sorry to say but you're an idiot...like many people have stated before, that the DDOS attack has nothing to do with xbox live security and you should probably learn what you are talking about b4 you go blabering on about something you know nothing about. Someone can just as easily DDOS you off your PSN account as they could your XBL account. Oh and maybe you should care a little less about what people are buying next gen...if you don't want the next xbox then don't buy it its as simple as that, nobody else cares about what you think they should or shouldn't buy. True gamers don't align themselves with one single brand.
Could of been worst, he could of lost all of his stats on a decent game..
Lol people are still trying to reach the top of the leaderboards. If you haven't been playing the game since release.... EVERYDAY then sucks for you
Lol getting upset over a game.
Oh my god poor him. Humanity will never recover from this tragedy.
it's precisely the lack of humanity that's disheartening. sure, it's just a videogame. not life and death. but to deliberately harass someone over a game, unsolicitedly, just because they're doing better than you? yeah, i'd say that's a ding against humanity alright.
Like how Justin Bieber fans are cutting themselves just because he smoked some pot -_-
*facepalm You do realize that was something 4chan started, right?
#1 in Black Ops 2? Is that supposed to be an accomplishment? ...I kid I kid..lol
Its an accomplishment of announcing to the world you have a highly addictive personality problem. Imagine this kid on heroin hell be dead in a day.
All those hours he'll never get back...for nothing. Poor guy.
indeed, that is by far the saddest part.
