A recent Tweet from Treyarch’s front man, Josh Olin, goes some way to assuring us that Call of Duty: Black Ops’ leaderboards won’t be a clusterf**k of hacked scores – à la Modern Warfare 2 – which rendered the leaderboards virtually useless for the last Call of Duty game.
Olin has gone on record saying that Treyarch “have the necessary tools to moderate the Leaderboards” for Black Ops. Furthermore, those who are caught hacking the system will be banned!
JD_2020 – Yes, we have the necessary tools in #CODBlackOps to moderate the leaderboards. Furthermore, we’ll ban those who hack.
If the stellar job they did with World at War is anything to go by we should have leaderboards that are actually worth looking at back in Call of Duty. Good times!
We’ll hold you to that, Mr Olin.
