The original call of duty modern warfare has been swamped with hackers and IW seem to be letting it happen I hope they sort it out its still my game of choice i feal like its been neglected and forgotten about any one else feal the same?
It's ridiculous how long this has been going on. I had to create a new account because mine was hacked back to level 1 with negative XP so I couldnt play online at all. I really hope IW is going to do a little better job of taking care of the customer after they have our money with MW3. I may wait a while and see how long it takes for the hacks to start showing up before I buy it.
I've owned C.o.D. 4: modern warfare and modern warfare 2 for a LONG time.
I haven't played modern warfare 2 since last year- when people were killing me with a single glancing bullet on standard team deathmatch. Today I played original modern warfare for the last time- I took a hammer to both discs and registered just to say this. I've never been so aggravated in my entire life and plan on ignoring all future titles like they are a plague, despite my avid love of 1st person shooters. Good luck in your future endeavors Infinity Ward, I place no faith in your production abilities any longer.
I agree with Mr. Binary... I am NOT what you would call a gamer. I'm an old guy who works a lot and can snatch 30 mins or an hour once in a while to play a game on my daughter's XBox. I purchased COD 4/Modern Warfare and was really enjoying it. I was working my way up through the levels. When playing in Multiplayer, I noticed some strange things that I did not understand but do now after reading about these hackers. Then a couple nights ago, my game seemed to be taken over by someone else. I was spectating. Next thing I know, I had leveled up to 55! Everything was unlocked. This pisses me off! I want to go back to where I was... the rank I had EARNED, and finish on my own. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
I was really looking forward to buying a new CoD title but if this is how IW supports their materials, I will shop elsewhere. Please IW...can't you stop the hackers?
Aparentley theres a new patch IW are bringing out but ive been told by a few people including hackers they have already got new hacks and mods ready for when the new patch comes out so im afraid. R.I.P Modern Warfare 4!!!!
Ditto CMitch45, I too am a casual user who wants to monitor my progress without cheating and who is thoroughly hacked off with the latest infection to come my way. Playing today on MW1, my XP drains at the end of the game and I am back to level 1. I've played this game for a couple of years now, honestly and fairly, trying to achieve L55 at the final grade. All that enjoyment and effort has now gone to waste thanks to some purile, malovelent little toerag who has nothing better to do with his life. I have read this was an issue with MW2 but only for those people who played in a private forum who had already activated infections (CHEATS!!!) - this was not the case in my situation on both accounts. I am gutted at the moment. I've got MW2 and Black Ops waiting to be played at the moment but what is hte point if i am going to go through the same scenario again? Surley something can be done to remove these cretins from the servers and protect honest gamers who just want to play fairly.
Its a real pity this had to happen to COD4 as its real classic but now all people will remember is the hackers and not what a great game it was to play. Is it worth patching if the hackers already have a workaround,probably not but here,s hoping.
