Modern Warfare 2 Community: The Epitome of Evil
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love this game. I know that it may seem like I despise it given the title that I chose for this editorial. But, it’s not the game itself that makes me so upset here, it’s how people chose to play it. I play Modern Warfare 2 every single day on my PlayStation 3, and have been playing since the game’s launch. I have spent so many sleepless nights gaining XP and brutalizing my way to the top of the leaderboards, as I hope all of you are doing the same. So, without further hesitation, let’s get down to the skinny of it all…
The multi-player of Modern Warfare 2 is the part of the game that everyone enjoys playing, but what will make someone decide to say “enough is enough.” A few days ago, I decided to put together a piece, or rant, talking about all of the things in this game that make me and many others so incredibly ticked off.
By the way Infinity Ward, if you are reading this, please for the love of God, PATCH THE ROCK GLITCH ON FUEL!!! This is just ridiculous. I don’t understand why this hasn’t been patched with the release of the Resurgence Map Pack once it hit the PlayStation Network. I don’t get how you can just keep letting people get inside this rock and pummel everyone with every weapon they have, and we are completely useless when it comes to taking down the rat bas*ard inside that effing rock! Everyone is tired of running around like a chicken with its head chopped off… Patch the rock glitch! Let players enjoy the level.
But, nothing erks me more than boosters and 10th prestige hackers. If you are unaware as to what boosting is, it’s when two people go into a free for all match equipped with a tactical insertion and continue to kill one another until they get a tactical nuke. Wow, really? Is it just me, or is this just downright ridiculous? When did playing a video game become about cheating so badly that you have to not play the game like its supposed to be played? Or needing to have a hacked account to get to the top of the leaderboards. The other night I was playing online with some friends, waiting in the lobby for the match to begin, when out of nowhere I hear “Hey, Vokillist, want to get hacked?” I could only say one thing to the person, “Are you kidding me? Get out of here.” I’m taking a guess on this one, and am going to assume that he didn’t see my rank in the game. I’ve been sitting at 10th prestige for the past month, and I did it all without using a hack or glitches, or by being a booster or a noob-tubing f**kstick.
On a daily basis, I am asked by players in lobbies, “are you a real 10th prestiger?” And that answer is “YES! I am, and proud of it!” I’ve earned that 10th prestige title and all of my other emblems, and am currently placed at 73, 600 on the global leaderboards for my score, and climbing everyday. Now, I know that may not be the greatest standing point on the leaderboards, but considering how many boosters and hackers there are out in the community of Modern Warfare 2 players, I would consider that to be pretty good.
I have been told so many times, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” Well, I don’t want to join them. I’m sure that you all don’t want to join them either, you want to enjoy yourself and not have to worry about constantly dying and having a score of 3 kills and 31 deaths by the end of the match. I don’t want to be that shyster who only uses noob-tubes or RPG’s, and I’m sure that you don’t want that either. I want to play a game and be entertained while doing so. That’s why I purchased Modern Warfare 2.
But honestly, I don’t really feel like this issue of noob-tubers, boosters, and hackers can be resolved without placing the game on my shelf for the next year until I decide to pick it up again. All I know is that if I continue to play Modern Warfare 2, I will have an aneurism or possibly go insane, and it’s mainly due to shady people who make it so unfair with constant noob-tubes and RPGs, boosters and the millions of hackers who have infiltrated the leaderboards, regardless of what system you play on. I don’t want to hang up my dog tags and call it quits. I don’t want to continue having nightmares and waking up screaming, “Noob-Tuber, don’t put that there!” I guess I will just do what I have been doing, and that is finding other lobbies to play in when people decide to be party-poopers. But seriously, it gets so annoying regathering your party members every few minutes… I think that sometimes I spend more time in the lobby than I do playing the actual game.
I’m really curious as to what people’s opinions are on people who want to be shady like this. I want to know what makes people want to hack their account to get that 10th prestige. Why do people boost? Are you lazy? What kind of satisfaction do you get? So, lets hear it…
