Black Ops 2 community abuse forces top player to reset stats

Postby TheRandyNinja » 08 Jan 2013, 14:07

would love to know how you ddos a 360 you would need to know a host of details that are pretty much unobtainable. ddos works on websites where the information needed is easy to aquire but to ddos a 360 where all you have to go on is a gamertag sounds a bit fishy to me...the only other way would be a router attack but like i said before acquiring the ip etc for a personal line would be pretty hard to achieve. he probably just got a host of messages and buckled under pressure.

Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service

I don't see why this guy is getting all the attention though just because he's number 1 on the leader boards. People get reset on a daily basis on Black Ops 2. Sometimes its justified and sometimes it isn't.

I wouldn't be suprised if most of his kills were achieved with a shotgun or sniper.

An excellent example of how horrible the Call of Duty community is. Especially on the Xbox. That is just putrid to harass someone because he ranks better than you. By far the worst community in gaming history.

He likely, as most of the corrupted CoD community has done, modified/padded his stats, or otherwise cheated the system. Too bad he got caught, hm? Hopefully he learned his lesson and will play legit next time.
