Good, serves them right, idiots.

lMHl1713d ago

I think mw3 is balls deep compaired to bf3

RIPSKATEDESTROY1713d ago

they are doing something about it and thats all i care about. im all for it

JBaby3431713d ago

I'm glad they are doing something about it. I can't stand glitchers and cheaters. Play the game right or get out. If you can't win the real way you're still losing.

Elyxir-pSx1712d ago

I got reported by some guy who claimed I was cheating because I was the only one on my team who could kill him lol.

Berserk1712d ago

You think maybe they are banning the ones with 2000 kill streak, or the ones with a 300 K/D? Just wondering...

Trainz1713d ago (Edited 1713d ago )

Wait people get banned for exposing glitches that should be patched out?
That's f*cked up.

@MidnytRain Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

MidnytRain1713d ago (Edited 1713d ago )

Not if they know what they're doing is wrong. The alternative at this point is to do nothing.

Intentions1713d ago

Not every game is perfect you know.

radphil1713d ago (Edited 1713d ago )

It's not f'ed up. People know what they're doing is wrong with the glitches to get an unfair advantage. These people aren't innocent in what they do on that situation at hand.

If you noticed a flaw within a security system and exploit it, would you cry foul for being told on and locked up?

Just curious on a side note but how is it that what Trainz said was acceptable when EA did it from people on here?

They yelled at EA for banning people for using glitches/exploits, and they were the bad guys.

GraveLord1713d ago

Pretty sure DICE did the same with Battlefield 3.
Its common practice to punish cheaters in online games.

But since this glitch isn't any sort of hack or mod I expect these to be temporary bans.

Halochampian1713d ago

@gravelord

Dice didnt ban them for exploiting "glitches." They just reset their stats since all they were doing were boosting their stats.

Mikeyy1713d ago

@Trainz

Really dude? Because you where able to fall through the ground, get under the map, and effectivly ahnilate everybody into a free MOAB, you feel thats ok?

Because its in the game, its a feature?

Entitlement people piss me off. Get off the Foodstamps bum.

JBaby3431713d ago

Nicely said. Bubs for you.

ZombieNinjaPanda1712d ago

If it's in the game, it's a feature. Doesn't mean it's not a bullshit feature that needs to be fixed, but it's still a feature. Get the shitty developer to fix it.

flyinrhyno1713d ago (Edited 1713d ago )

people get banned for cheating if u wanna expose it go to a private match and no one will report you. save videos and post to youtube, im glad cheaters are getting banned and hope they clean up the leaderboards and get rid of all that cheat

and they dont fall through @mikeyy they know what there doin, this guy i played against ran straight to the access point were he wormed his way through the wall.

Hudahudahuda1712d ago

While I do agree with banning hackers, I don't agree with banning glitchers. You see, the developers are the ones responsible for glitches, not the players, and while the people who abuse these developer oversights are indeed shameless bastards, the simple fact is that any player could potentially abuse these glicthes and thus they did not really have any unfair advantage over the other players.

AdmiralSnake1712d ago

We know what a glitch is, they should get banned for it period.

All because a moron decides to glitch, doesn't mean I have to do it, I seen the leaderboards with people at 10th prestige with a 500 KDR.... they should get banned.

calibann1712d ago

What part of joining a server you don't own, cheating on it, then getting banned for abusing the rules of the server (which are clearly stated in the T&C) sounds fucked up to you?

demetre721712d ago

@trainz Exposing them is one thing( and reporting them asap to developers ) but taking advantage of them is another ,
seriously the ones at fault were abusing of them and now it's time to pay the price lmao good riddance !!

About freaking time, I hate playing COD most of the time. Because of cheaters, that was the reason I stop playing MW2 after hitting rank 100 worldwide.

Swiggins1713d ago

You were rank 100 worldwide....mhmm sure....

Neko_Mega1713d ago

I was, on PSN. For the first two weeks that MW2 came out, don't care of some nobody believes it or not.

Doesn't change the fact that I will most likely have more kills then deaths then most people.

SnakeCQC1713d ago

whats so hard to beleive for a long time i was top 10,000(out like 1.6 million) when i played warhawk and then lost interest

Terrified1713d ago

You was rank 100 worldwide but you "hate playing COD most of the time." I'm sorry, but if you hate playing COD, you would never have been that high. You're bad.

AdmiralSnake1712d ago

You're a nobody to though, nobody cares that you hit rank 100, yet you wanted to mention that as if we care, contradicting indeed.

SnakeCQC1713d ago

if the devs didn't have any beta and expected no glitches or vulnerabilities that is there bad but to completely ban someone from a game that was bought at an extortionate amount that is just crazy!

LOOK_AT_THIS_I1713d ago

yeah because some douchebag paid the same amount of money I did to play the game should be allowed to fuck up everyone elses gameplay online right? its good when cockroaches come out of the woodwork to defend the cheaters makes it a bit easier to ignore/avoid them in the future.

this is the only reason I think online passes should be used. when some jagoff gts hit with a ban, make them have to pay to get back online. it can be done with community mods just like they used to do in Resistance, when they are reported the mods step in and review and can monitor for the reported activity and "Boot" . Good Riddance you pieces of garbage.

SnakeCQC1713d ago

I haven't played a call of duty game since mw2 because of the cheaters and glitches. I'm just saying its wrong to completely ban someone for using glitches(something that could have been found out through qa and betas) a stat reset would have been more appropriate

Heartnet1713d ago

They would have had a Beta and Alpha and hired a company to do it for them :)

JUst cause it wasnt released to the general public dont mean they dont have a beta...

RioKing1712d ago (Edited 1712d ago )

@Erudito87

BF3 had an Alpha and a Beta, and yet it still had it's problems when it launched..
