    Corrupted Profile on CoD 4: Modern Warfare, and problems with Activision support.

      Hi, so does anybody know how I might be able to get my corrupted online profile for modern warfare fixed/reset?


      Extra Info:

      -I'm pretty sure I've been the victim of hacking/tampering, because all weapons & perks on my create-a-class are locked, and an image of the "M9" handgun is streched at an insufficiant resoloution across my primary slot, and there is also some strange red-text here and there that reads "UN-LOCALIZED".


      -I wouldn't mind so much, but I bought the game from a store for the first time 3/4 days before posting this, and after my first few games (as soon as I unlocked the option to create-a-class in fact) this happened, so a lack of support here really would make me feel I've wasted money on an un-supported Activison product.


      -Just to be clear here; I have not been knowingly collaborating, playing with, or turning a blind-eye to any hackers/tamperers prior to this, cheating in online play happens to be one of my "pet-peeves" and my hate is undying for individuals who troll and defile the otherwise sporting competitive community, and I report/file complaint accordingly when I witness something unmistakable.


      Problems With Activison Support:

      -I wouldn't have thought this would be Activision's area of jurisdiction, but Microsoft pointed me here, if I should infact contact someone else; please correct me.


      -Following advice from similar discussions I've found online, I have requested my stats for CoD 4 be re-set in the correct manner via Activison & Microsoft, in the hope this would default my online profile, and remove any modified code but after waiting the three days I was told to, in order to see some effect, I have been disappointed to find no reset, and still a damaged online profile.


      -The "Contact Us" section of the Activision support website forces you to select a game in order to make any form of contact, since CoD 4 is not listed or selectable here, one can only assume this is activision's way of saying "You're on your own, here on Mr.Paying Customer Sir".


      -Finally, sorry if this post is in the wrong place or somehow breaches ettiquette, but as a forum "noob" I found the cycle of pages one gets stuck in when trying to navigate Activison support, regarding one of their products that was not released in the last two-years, so unintuitive and frustrating I finally saw this as my only option.


      A Final Note If Anyone From Activision Is Reading:

      I don't mean to be rude, and can only imagine the challenges of policing an online community so large, and I understand how financially it's perhaps not so viable to constantly monitor and enforce smaller communities on some of the older releases, and this is after all a busy time (as always) for the CoD franchise, looking to the future, and perhaps not the past titles.

      But the bottom line is; I just want to play the game I bought a few days ago, and to maybe create a class on it would be swell. Even though I've never owned it, I have played CoD 4 and it is one of my favorite CoDs yet, and I have bought every other release since then, and still play Bo2 regularly. I wouldn't like to lose my faith in some of the responsibilities behind my favorite game franchise, and just because I may have no legal grounds to "force" someone to help me (no doubt because of whatever small print is in those user warranty and policy things I never read) doesn't mean I don't have a point. Afterall the servers are still up, and people still love it - the game that argueably started all the success CoD has seen in the 6 years since.


      So someone please Help me! Just wanna play some Search and Destroy with UAV Jammer and a silenced MP5, OMJ!

            Hi OgresBurp,


            Just to say thanks for understanding my frustrations, I appreciate the advice and just being contacted in fact! It seems I formed some opinions about Activision's customer support a little too quickly perhaps, and my faith is somewhat restored by your speedy response and genuine interest so well done!
            I did post this discussion after already submitting my stat reset and waiting three days (as recommended) sadly to no avail, but I will do as you say and submit my information again and wait a while longer this time, I do think I've been a tad impatient regarding dealing with this matter.


            Either way, for the sake of readers who may experience similar issues, I'll update this discussion in a week with any progress, but if unfortunately there is none, I may bother you or one of your collegues again about the matter, but for now I feel as though I've been supported, so thanks.
            Finally, I "liked" your answer and marked it as correct, but if there is any other way I might give you positive feedback or improve your "rep" or whatever, please do let me know, I'm sure you deserve it, if only just for being an old-school Bodom fan!
