God what cunts.
I hate it when you think you've done really well on something, then you check the leaderboards to see where you stack, and you find that there's hundreds if not thousands of people with scores unattainable through legitimate means, so your rank is bumped down alot lower than what it should be.

Anyone care to share their views on this?

Bad Company 2? Or Modern Warfare 2?


Well.

Shit.

Any game with a leaderboard function.

It's probably this.

But yeah, when it's so fucking easy to glitch that thousands of people have glitched scores, it needs to be patched and reset. If say only 1 guy has glitched an impossible score, I would say he deserves the top spot.

Especially flash game leader boards, those are the most annoying.

HAH, FUCK YOU GAME DEVELOPERS. I AM YOUR KING.
I agree there. But leaderboard glitchers are still cunts.

Response to People who glitch leaderboards... 2010-06-17 21:06:42


It depends, if someone discovers a way to exploit the game then I'm cool with it. I feel like things within the game that are breakable are fair play. If someone is able to hack the game then I feel like that's bullshit.

I completely 100% agree with your opinion. Glitching/modding/cheating completely takes away the challenge and point of playing games and getting scores

Response to People who glitch leaderboards... 2010-06-17 23:32:23


Right.

If you find a way to hack, and play in a private match, offline, or etc. Cool, I'll join you.

But, really. Stay away from the online. Why do you assholes ruin the challenge and fun for everyone else either on the leaderboard or the actual game room. Fuck off and let us play the game.

This is with very true with guitar hero games. For any of you claim to have 100% in TTFAF on Expert, you are bullshitting everyone.

I completely agree with you, Oliver. There are folks on the Xbox 360 MW2 leaderboards with some insane number, like, 23 trillion and a bunch of other numbers. Then they have -2 deaths. It's really quite annoying, and it goes on for about 50,000 players or so.

This is why you probably don't have too many online friends.

Exploiting/glitching is just as bad as hacking.

If I can go behind a wall and snipe you, but you can't even get your shots through to me, let alone see me, then that's completely unfair.

He wasn't saying he did. He's saying that almost everyone who has it FC'd is glitching it.

I don't actually see what it accomplishes besides showing the world that you are a complete asshole who can't get to the top by playing properly.

No it isn't. Glitches are a part of a game and available to all players. It may be unsportsman like, but you can do the same thing as him.

You can't glitch FC's, only scores. Which doesn't matter anyway because the leaderboards don't show FCs. Besides, there are people who have FCed it anyway.

Halo 2 fell down because Bungie reset the ranks.

That was the worst decision next to Reach they ever made.

I used to be in the top 3000 in the world for Kills and Score in Modern Warfare 2 until those hackers came along.

Very annoying because now I'm in the 197,000 range >:(

Mario Kart Wii?

Response to People who glitch leaderboards... 2010-06-18 15:57:42


I don't generally have aproblem with it because I never expect to, or ever actually, get anywhere high on leaderboards.

But I think my sister does, she plays the Wii and has quite a talent for Mario Kart. She once managed to do a very good score and went on the leaderboards to find that if it wasn't for about 6 hackers, she would be in first place Worldwide.

she was annoyed.

I don't glitch I just don't care if someone else does. I'm actually a pretty honorable player, but I really don't give a shit about a number next to my name being less than it should. I was actually more referring to glitching something like the time trials in Mirror's Edge where somebody could potentially find a way to take a shortcut that the developer's intended to be blocked off. In multiplayer games it's more of an annoyance and can actually ruin a game if it's a particularly nasty glitch, but it's still not like I'm going to pull my hair out over it.

I usually don't care about leaderboards, but it can be irritating. I remember back when Survival mode just came out on Left 4 Dead, you would think you did really good, then all the top scores are 200,000 hours or something.

Someone should fix the leaderboards for Megaman 9 & 10.

some guy is kicking the glitching cunts' asses in Bad Company 2. He's already I think # 15 and he's doing it the fair way

kudos to that guy!
