Head Start

08 Nov

It’s almost here gamers. The day you have all been waiting for. At least the day most of us have been waiting for. There are many out there who are lucky enough to live near a store that broke the street date with Modern Warfare 2. There are also idiots out there who have modded Xbox’s and illegally downloaded the game.

This is yet another thing that has angered COD players over the past few weeks. It was assumed that all stats and leaderboards would be cleared on release night. Not the case. Only gamers with illegal copies of MW2 will be reset. Anyone who bought their game legally gets a head start.

Now before you go and tell me “who cares, it’s only a game”. I know thanks, it’s not the point. The point is that no matter how you got the game, everyone should be starting on the same level playing field. Stats and leaderboards should be cleared. If Infinity Ward is so concerned about cheating why are they not clearing everyone? Last I checked a head start was considered a form of cheating.

    Now the console community can see IW’s true colours.

    I am a PC gamer, exclusively, and I wasn’t going to get the game after the October proclamation that started the whole debacle. And now this just gives me one more reason to not want it.

    I agree that in a case like this, all the stats should be scrubbed and everyone starts clean on the actual release date. IW’s position is akin to rewarding those retailers who did release the game early.

    If the point is for everyone to start at the same level, then why allow just a few to get a head start? This seems absurd.
