Okay so this is getting ridiculous... there are now over 30,000 people that have hacked the Score leaderboards and EVERY single lobby I join there are 2-3 people that hacked for their prestiges (there are 9th + in every game).
By not banning these individuals all you are doing is telling people that its "okay" to hack the leaderboards because IW is not banning anyone, leading to more and more people doing it.
If you guys are not going to ban anyone that hack the leaderboards then what is the point in even having them?
Please fix this issue and clean the hackers off the leaderboards..
And don't say you have been banning people because if you have I wouldn't see more and more of them daily.
I'm sure between now and x amount of time they will do something about it.
But think the hacked lobby's and game updates have a higher priority
This happens with every single COD.
What they need to do it have a team ready for this and as SOON AS PEOPLE HACK THE LEADERBOARD they should be instantly banned from the game.
That would be nice wouldn't it
Anyway OP, dont despair, there'll soon be an influx of people who have been 'banned for nothing' or their little brother was on their console hacking and glitching, or they accidentally joined a modded lobby and accidentally carried on playing right up til max prestige, and so on and so on and so on...
Banning the leaderboard hackers would be incredibly easy. A simple program could be written searching for abnormalities categories such as Time Played, Average Score,Wins, Losses, Kills and such. The output of such a program could be then fed to the banning system. A competent programmer could probable write it in half a morning.
A much "smarter" program could be written that would apply statistical analysis to look for abnormalities.
Repeat offenders should be prosecuted under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. A little jail time and the removal of computer/gaming system privileges might do some good for the whole community.
What a fantastic use of taxpayers money that would be, chasing after some kids/nerds who hacked a videogame leaderboard. *facepalm*
end of the day we have paid money to play a fair game...and were not getting that.support are not helping which is a shame...hacking should be some sort of crime and punishment should be given out..ban them now and ban them from purchasing xbox one
They will be banned in due time. If anything mate, report them via XBL and not just in game. If MS bring down their banhammer, it'll likely be the 'permanently offline' one. Then said hacker will need to invest in a new console.
People, when it comes to hackers, report ingame AND REPORT THEM TO MS. Assuming you haven't been filing butthurt reports regularly (and thats not a veiled accusation btw, just to be clear), action will be fairly swift.
EDIT: more to the point, there are far greater problems which require the laws attention than some saddos cheating in a game. Making them pay a load of cash each time they get banned is punishment enough IMO.
It's not going to be that easy to detect, and anyway, you can't arrest people for cheating in a game. The FBI isn't going to go after that, and anyone reporting it would be arrested.
