Net Media Now "If you have played Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare 2 recently, you might have run into many hacked lobbies. Don't worry though, Infinity Ward is addressing the issue."
lawl, i hope they do a better job for mw3 than this
Don't count on it :P
Wait, so now that bf3 its hot on their heels they're supporting their games?. See why fanboyism is bad?
For some odd reason, I think it's unfair to judge game companies. Rather than having to patch up your game, find the people behind it and drop a lawsuit. Surely, the webpages that host these cheats can be closed if Activision drops enough investment into it. I am not saying a tremendous amount, but put a lawyer on it and it will slowly fade out.
Since they're using the same engine as MW2 we'll probably see hacks and exploits on day one.
HAHAHAHA 3 years later and they decided to patch their games. Great Job Infinity Ward Great job! (Why do people like this dev?)
It seems like they are on the right track. They took out many "exploitable" perks.
haha yeah, only took them 2-4 years
Reading further down in the article and seeing that explosives are getting nerfed made smile to myself like an idiot. No more noob tube!
really just now!????
for one of highest selling games they have the crappiest online support.
damn. i wanted WAW fixing as well. cod 4 fixed is a good bonus though. cheers IW.
I liked it when i got into a hacked loby,it started very strange unusual,I saw an enemy shot him and got bilion points and imideatelly ranked up tp lvl 70 from 23.Now I haz all teh weponz
well thats alot late.
Yep.... "a little late don't you think" would be the better phrase, but hey whatever works.
At least they are fixing them... unlike some other companies
Naughty Dog still hasn't fixed the treasure and gemometry glitches in Uncharted 2 multiplayer. IW deserves some slack, though. Activision puts them into a rigid schedule, so it's harder to attend released games.
@MidnytRain got to agree with you on Naughty Dog not fixing the glithches. I noticed that instead of fixing it they kinda made it worse. It's still fun but I think it was more enjoyable when the game first came out. Hope that doesn't happen in U3's multiplayer.
those other companies wich didnt have the same problems to begin with and release better QA tested games :p ?
What? they were one of those companies that didn't fix em.
Too Late.... I've moved on months ago.
So simple a cave man can do it!
too bad the game came out nearly 2 years ago. You've just admitted that you've played it recently.
Whats wrong in playing a 2 years old game? I still play Bc1 witch was released in 08,and have shit loads of fun.
Nothing's wrong with it, just that these people are so quick to insult Call of Duty, yet if he moved on why did he play the game a few months ago? Clearly that game came out close to 2 years ago, seems strange that he'd play that game recently.
i just hope mw3 wont have ghost or second chance keep the crosbow though :D
I second that. I feel Ghost slowed down Black Ops, and Second Chance is just a cheap perk.
i wouldn't consider the cross-bow to be "modern"
still its a cool feature and fun to use also the tomhawk and balistic would be nice
i like ghost is very useful, second chance is very annoying
yeah, second chance needs to go. i was guilty of using it when it first came out but starting using marathon instead. i've never used ghost but i know it'd piss off a lot of people if they took it out.
ghost is pretty gay and try using hacker its much better than marathon
So, CoD4 has been out HOW LONG?
Since November 2007.
Still, it's the best Call of Duty to date and it's actually a very good game.
there called infinity ward for a reason, because thats how long it takes to patch there games, and in my opinion, to love this game you would have to be in a mental ward. adds up dosent it. infinityward
Wow, they patch it now when MW3 is coming out :/ Well whatever, I still play CoD4 here and there so this is pretty great news thou its kind of too late.
That's really late, come on guys get your sh1t together. One thing they can learn from Black ops is how Treyarch has an auto ban system for anyone using edited files.
Too little too late, this means nothing to me.
and yet here you are
Yes, because something that is disappointing or not a good enough or means little to you means you shouldn't be allowed to comment on it. People's logic on here is just terrible. Mechanic: "Hey, I fixed your car" Customer: "What do you mean? I already I have a new car, the fact you are fixing that POS means nothing now" Mechanic: "Yet you respond to me saying this, must mean you care! BUHAHAHAH" No.
@Blacknight Yeah... you payed the mechanic $200 to fix your car which probably cost $5,000+ and you don't want it anymore, BEST COMPARISON EVER. /s/
I think a lot of people still play both of those games.
MW2 is the second most played game on xbox live and psn and cod 4 is a timeless classic
I'd rather they patch them than close their servers like EA
lmao wow IW....you guys are funny
2 years later......
4 years later....2010 black ops, 2009 modern warfare2, 2008 world at war, 2007 modern warfare 1
I was speaking more in terms of mw2.
@stankychicken...well u should have said that because title states both mw1 and mw2
LOL im glad to see their on top of this in a timely manner lol ive already given up on those games time to move on
People will find a reason to complain about Call Of Duty or Activision no matter what they do. I played COD4 for years with no problems, I took my team to the Gamebattles playoffs and the top 32. It's only been recently that I've seen any hacked lobby's. With all their resources focused on Modern Warfare 3, you can see why it'd be hard to keep updates coming for a game that is 4 years old.
Considering how there's still a decent sized community for CoD4, I find no reason for them to not stay on top of security. CoD4 has been in shambles for months now. I hope it can be brought back to a playable state.
"With all their resources focused on Modern Warfare 3, you can see why it'd be hard to keep updates coming for a game that is 4 years old." Smaller companies with less resources have done a better job with updates. It's one of the highest grossing games out there, i'm sure they have the funds to hire a couple more people to work on this stuff. Anyhow, it gives me hope that they'll support MW3 better than the last two MW's.
you play on 360, theres hakcked lobbies all over the place
dude not just the 360...its on all systems(pc as well)
"If you have played Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare 2 recently..." Timeframe fail.
Sure they have said this before....
I've heard this somewhere before..
And it will only take a few weeks for them to show up again. what else does IW think they can do right?
For PC it wouldn't surprise me if it meant getting rid of mod support and dedicated servers like they did for MW2.
I can't stand Activision. They're only now doing this so it makes CoD fans more secure with the franchise and allows people to play MW2 and CoD4 so they eventually go buy MW3. This is BS cause hacks have been going in the games for months now.
It will be the same shit all over again
Lmao at how late they are. I hope MW3 is riddle with bugs/hackers like Blops thus putting yet another nail in this coffin.
I'd like my money back please , failing that ill take a dedicated server to your face :) Have a nice day sir !
Better late than never.
hopefully a wake up call 4 whats next (mw3)
