Is there a way to derank or reset myself?

Call of Duty Ghosts XBOX 360

Is there a way to derank or reset myself?

Well as you probably know there are multiple modded lobbies going around. You can easily go into one by simply searching for domination. I know this because when i went online to search for domination i was put into what i thought was a normal lobby... then BAM!  after one kill i had been put up from level 17 to 49 and given loads of call of duty tokens (or whatever they're called). It makes me furious that i can get banned for something that clearly wasn't my fault. I despise the people that hack these lobbies. they take a great game and ruin it for other people. could you please add in a feature to reset yourself back to level 1? it would be much appreciated! not just for me but for multiple people. I am now unable to find a game with out panicing about whether im going to get a single kill and be put up multiple ranks. If you could would you be able to reset me back to my original level?

If the people who do accidentally go into these lobbies are banned for it when it obviously wasnt their fault... then this game will honestly be ruined. please get it sorted Infinity ward! @

I have seen some modded stats on the leaderboards for sure. IW will make it right I hope.

yeah man i know! Im just concerned that people like myself who simply searched for domination, find a lobby and get a kill... then are put to a stupidly high level and also immediately classed as a cheater will get banned. i didnt want this! it sucks! now im not so keen on playing it because i know it could happen again! IT SUCKS SO MUCH! hahaa

You CAN'T get into modded lobbies through searching for a match. The only way you can get into one is by accepting a random invite. Of course you can't take responsibility for your actions and try to blame it on getting into one through searching for something match because your scared you might get banned for having participate in such lobby. Don't accept invites from randoms folks.

I'll second the idiot alert, here.

You can get into these lobbies by just searching for matches. It happened to a ton of people on the pre-release & day 1 servers.

I know a few people who have had this happen to them, and have seen reports from many people on these forums of it happening too.

Before you post and start criticizing those that are having this issue, try and educate yourself & understand the nature of the hack

Calling someone an idiot makes you an idiot, no I'm just ignorant on the fact. Just didn't see how that's that's even possible. I'll admit I was wrong but seriously guys? You ought to be more mature than to outright call someone you don't even known an idiot over forums which is why I said it makes you an idiot. Funny how after 200 games I have yet to get into a modded lobby which is why I assume it only happens through invites since a Modder has to hosting the match and I don't sww how that gets involved with regular matchmaking. It's just stupid that it happens this way.

Try tweeting @infinityward with your gamertag telling them you need a stat reset due to modded lobbies. Hope that helps you and best of luck. See? I can be civil, you should try it sometimes.

thank you for helping! However, you said that you cant call someone an idiot on forums for getting something wrong... but you called me irresponsible and unable to face the consequences of joining a hacked lobby. if you had looked into the matter before hand and then wrote the response you would have known that it is possible to find a game randomly and be put into a hacked lobby. i know you obviously looked at this and thought "another f*nny who is looking to get reset because he hacked up..." but thats not the case! anyway cheers for the help bud! dont take the idiot comments personally
