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

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.

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.
Berserk  +   1468d ago
You think maybe they are banning the ones with 2000 kill streak, or the ones with a 300 K/D? Just wondering...

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...

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

Not every game is perfect you know.
radphil  +   1469d 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.

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.
Halochampian  +   1468d ago

Dice didnt ban them for exploiting "glitches." They just reset their stats since all they were doing were boosting their stats.
Mikeyy  +   1469d ago

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.

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.
flyinrhyno  +   1469d 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.

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.
AdmiralSnake  +   1468d 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.
calibann  +   1468d 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?
demetre72  +   1468d 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 !!
Neko_Mega  +   1469d ago
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.
Swiggins  +   1469d ago
You were rank 100 worldwide....mhmm sure....
Neko_Mega  +   1468d 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.
Erudito87  +   1468d 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
Terrified  +   1468d 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.
AdmiralSnake  +   1468d 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.
Erudito87  +   1469d 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_I  +   1469d 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.
Erudito87  +   1468d 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
Heartnet  +   1468d 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...
RioKing  +   1468d ago

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

I expect nothing less than absolute vigilance.
Elite service demands it even more than the simple purchase of the game.

If you played it youd be surprised how polished and great this game is. and although i would prefer there be no glitches a swift and powerful cure will do me just fine. Get these players outta the game ban their ps3 from any cod and lets move on

I think the ban thing is cool but what im confused is that they are basicaly slapping people who are glitching, and what everelse and IF/Sledghammer says no no, HOWEVER.. they are promoting quick scoping which is a glitch in itself, as it was in MW2...but they feel that one is fine cause its their glitch, or glitch aproved by the community.

My point is they have no room to ban anyone unless they drop the quick scope glitch since thats very hypocritical. Note* I don't quick scope, and honestly I don't care that people do it, just saying...can't ban for sum if your not going to ban for all.

MW3 lol is the same as MW2 AND mw2 IS COD4...BF3 is a complete new engine and sommmit differen!BF3 os completely different and better GIVE SOME MONEY TO PUGSLY AND LETS MAKE IT A RECORD
Heartnet  +   1467d ago
Gameplay wise bf series has always been the same just like CoD only reason its anything difference is the Graphics and theyve scaled the destruction back...

Youve psychologically made ur self believe the only way a game can progress and evolve is by making the graphics more realistically, which in all honestly is quite sad :(

and mw2 is complete difference to CoD4 which ud know if uve actually played the game :)
flyinrhyno  +   1467d ago
and the control never gets better, i keep an open mind every year and cod wins my vote every year, they try new things and take out what doesnt work, i vote with my purchases and with an open mind you might see the truth as well.
PSWarlord  +   1465d ago
I didnt say anything specific about the graphics, If you read my comment properly I said BF3 has a complete new engine Frostbite 2.0 and MW3 has had the same engine for the last 5 years. I appreciate the fact they have pumped money into aupdated engine, dramatically improving graphics and scale like you said. What has MW done to make the game prettier or better, it gets worse as the series continues. And I loved COD4 properly the most time ive spent on a video game.
Heartnet  +   1465d ago
Although u said nothing specific.. thats all BF3 has over previous titles ..

and engines dont have to be updated that often hell the current version of Unreal has been going on for quite the while and lesser engines that are used for arcade games and what not dont get updated that often...
PSWarlord  +   1465d ago
Yeh but at least they are making the effort, thats all I'm saying...Its annoying the frankly activison has earned 100's of millions on each release and cant be assed to change the engine. Adding a few new perks which frankly arent needed and to top it of recycling buildings etc from previous titles. BATTLEFIELD 3 IS AWESOME JOIN THE REVOLUTION
