MW2 Prestige Cheaters To be Suspended
It’s a shame that Modern Warfare 2 has been rife with hackers, glitchers, cheaters, boosters, mods, and all sorts of unscrupulous goings-on virtually since release. Even worse is the fact that nothing seems to be done about it by the powers that be (a patch that takes weeks to be certified just leaves the problems to fester).
One problem that has been prevalent is modded ’10th Prestige Lobbies’ which enables users who join one of these special lobbies to get an enormous amount of points-per-kill and reach 10th prestige within a matter of a few games.
Well, this news from XBOX Live head of Policy and Enforcement, Stephen Toulouse AKA ‘The Pro’, is music to our ears. In a post on the official Xbox forums The Pro addresses the cheaters with a clear message that people who have obtained prestige in Modern Warfare 2 illegitimately, will be given suspensions from Xbox Live. The guys running these lobbies will be permanently banned.
The Pro – “ATTENTION MW2 CHEATERS (and you know who you are)
People who have obtained prestige illegitimately, will be given suspensions. People soliciting other people to gain prestige (whether for free, or for points) will be permanently suspended.
To all those users who are attempting to play MW2 without cheating, please have faith. Hang in there, because the cheaters are being caught and the game will be patched.
p.s., it doesn’t matter if you gained 10th prestige, 2nd, or 1st: illegitimate gameplay = suspension”
That’s awesome news in many people’s books. It may also stop the spam 10th prestige lobby invite threads we keep getting on the forums (and swiftly deleting I might add) and over Xbox Live.
Maybe the fact that this guy admits to getting 10th prestige in a modded lobby and swiftly gets suspended shows that Microsoft are serious about clearing up Modern Warfare 2.
If you get invited to a modded lobby over Xbox Live be sure to report the user and lets wait and see if the cheaters start dropping from the system.
