The very moment when the prestige hacking got really bad

Black Ops II Xbox 360

The very moment when the prestige hacking got real...

When they took the spawn timer out of Hardcore Team Deathmatch.  The game was originally made to be played with the spawn timer and by suddenly removing it without having changed other lines of code you left hackers a wide open door with a welcome mat.

I am pretty sure they patched the Theater and duplication glitches.

The moons of Jupiter were also aligned when the spawn timer was removed, clearly this is the link to the hacking epidemic.

As a matter of fact it was not the moons of Jupiter but nice try.  It was a full moon and after the 3 arc devs turned in werewolves one of them hit the wrong switch and suddenly a game mode that had been played the same way for 5 years changed.  I am hoping with the next full moon the spawn timer will be restored and we can get back the only game mode there was where boosters feared to tread.

All I play is HC TDM and have never seen a Prestige Hacker or Booster.

They do need to re-institute the Spawn Timer, however. There is a reason it was there in the first place.

I wish I could get into games like that I find and kill boosters in about half of my HCTD and about 70% of HCKC matches

Last night, I thought I ran into Foxhound in BO2. If it was him, I say good game to him as he racked up kills, but it was nice to kill him a few times. He may be busy killing the Christmas noobs in BO2 right now, but then again, he's a good teammate to have.

The moderators are busy with their lives right now as they can't be on these forums 24/7.
