Its now confirmed that Infinity Ward and Microsoft are banning people from the beta due to people glitching to get in.
good thing i got mine legit
How are the gonna do that? #edit: Aah. I see, just banned from COD4Beta, not XboxLIVE or whatever :D
I saw some people paying as much as $40 to get in.
they would do this which is why i was patient enought to wait
All you had to do was sign up at the site within a 24 hour period and you were guaranteed a spot.
I've tried more than 50 times but the registration just didn't worked for me - and I'm not a moron. Still - I wanted to play this really bad, but I would never give 40$ for beta game which will be out in 2 months.
Pfft already guessed that this would happen.
ummmm.... ya, well...ok yes i am one of them ( ashamed )...hey, it was fun while it lasted. i was not sure at first simply because there are so many shooters coming out. i don't know if i missed the legit sign up for uk, i am sure i heard it was only in the us. hence i went in through the back door. on the flip side, well what am i suppose to do when developers keep leaving us brits in the dark. still great game, everyone needs to own it what ever system you have. now i just have to figure out what game i am going to drop in its place.. Haze, URT3, area 51, MOH airborne, Brother in arms...dam, so many fps games !
Serve 'em InfinityWard, serve 'em! My first day on the Beta (last week(, I noticed everyone in the room was NOT from America. I have friends who couldn't get in, cause the servers crashed and was too slow. Too bad, so glad, you've been had. BIATCHES! I hope Americans do the same thing to foriegners, once they release the beta overseas!
I for one am very pleased they actually did something! People started websites teaching how to glitch into the beta.. There were phantom XBL accounts passed around just to DL the beta! The beta itself and it's rightful participants were suffering because anyone and everyone could get in. Patient testers were stuck waiting for their rightful beta keys because the beta had filled up so quickly. Hopefully now things can get back on track and those who cheated to get in will learn something from this experience.
Who cares, the beta sucks anyways.
banned from the beta not xbox live
I helped get a friend in because his mac didn't let him get on the site, so I hope don't get banned.....
people are f*cking retarded. just pre-order a copy from xbox and you'll get a beta code.
Nowhere is it "now confirmed" This guy cod4forums don't half post a lot of sh1te about COD4 on here. Even in that thread he linked to, trying to get his site more hits, someone clearly says "it's been confirmed as an old pic on xbox forums" Nowhere does it say "you have been banned from the beta for glitching in with a 2nd account" so it cannot be confirmed as being for that reason. Simple really. It's more likely to be someone under 18 that got in and was reported at charlieoscardelta.com to IW, and they banned the account to cover themselves legally as it was for over 18s only...
