What is Prestige?

19 Jul



1. reputation or influence arising from success, achievement, rank, or other favorable attributes.

2. distinction or reputation attaching to a person or thing and thus possessing a cachet for others or for the public


3. having or showing success, rank, wealth, etc.

Back in the good old days of Call of Duty 4 a definition like that would be attached to the prestige process of COD. These days when it comes to WaW or MW2 no way. I spent my weekend carving out a good chunk of my 5th prestige in WaW. I have never received more 10th lobby messages in my life.

People really have no respect for what prestige actually stands for. They hack their way to the top and then what? So they can say they’re 10th prestige? It’s worth nothing if you don’t earn it. I don’t care if “everyone does it” or it’s a “broken game”. Those who hack 10th are part of the “broken game” problem.

I thought I would be safe from many of those hackers in WaW, and while there are less gameplay issues there are still plenty of hackers. It’s sad to get on a team of 10th hackers and lose. They don’t have the actual skill behind the rank they failed to earn. I’ll take a team of non-prestige over a team of 10th hackers any day.

    Stuff like this is the whole reason why i dont enjoy playing most CoD games anymore. CoD has become a haven for hackers and cheaters. It disgusts me how many of these people that hack and cheat thing they are “leet” gamers that think they are God’s gift to the gaming world. The amount of hackers ive came across since November 2009 has really left a bad taste in my mouth for not only CoD games, but FPS games in general. Im really hoping that Treyarch implements some type of anti cheating measures in CoD Black Ops. Its my last chance at FPS games. If this one fails i feel like i wont be playing them anymore. But im gonna put my faith in Treyarch to deliver us a great game.
