  1. Sad to say my account xSGTx5xSHOTx got hacked and got that prestigue token glith done now I got deranked I think that is so not fair

  2. i have never glitched or boosted before a week ago. after the frustration with the connection issues that still isnt fixed, the sniping where the cross hairs can be 2 feet off and still hit its mark to try to compensate for lag, and quick scoping is still in the game, and the 55 bucks i ended up spending on elite but yet still doesnt work… so F U finity ward and Rob douche bag… maybe if you made something that worked I wouldnt have felt the double xp glitch would be good compensation for you releasing something that F’n sucks….. if i could sell my elite i would and debating on getting rid of the game as well… I wouldnt have cared if you reset all my stats bu leaving my losses and deaths there, theres no point ill always have a negative ratio its not even worth playing the game… and why such a strict action on first time offenders, plus the double xp glitch didnt effect others game play.. i might as well be one of those F***ers who play 10 days level 80 but never prestige once.. so whats the difference, you guys ruined everything with this game and this is it im done with your company if theres a MW4 im not getting it…. peace out going back to black ops atleast the game works

  3. @playa4life352004: Ummmm….. Black-Ops is Infinity Ward. You can’t say you are done with the company and then go straight back to one of their games and expect people to believe that you are being honest about this being the first time you have used a glitch. Contradictory is a dishonest trait. As for the lag, that is caused by the host or players internet connection. The worse it is the more likely it is the host’s connection. It has nothing to do with IW’s servers.
    I, for one, am glad to see IW take a stand against those who use such lazy ways to get ahead. Many of the people using the glitch are realy good at 1st person shooters, too. It’s sad when people who already dominate the game feel compelled to cheat when they don’t even have to. As for the players that are average or below, shame on you for letting your pride get the better of you.
