Internally, this is has been a vigorous debate for a while now. Let’s throw it back to you guys and gals. What do you think? Start a thread and let’s see what you’re thinking. 


 

Thanks for the reply, ND. So here is what I think:

 

It depends whether the leaderboards in question are hacked or not. If it's a bug on ND's end then it won't be fair to ban the players involved for something they didn't do, but if they did hack then of course they need to be banned, no debate needed.

 

And if it's a bug then ND has to fix it as I highly doubt a competent developer like ND (especially when it comes to single player, engine and graphics) is unable to fix something as simple as its leaderboards.

 

As a last resort, I'd say reset the player's stats even if it's not their fault because I'm sure their stats can be restored since ND has announced being able to restore the stats of those whose accounts have been randomly reset in the past.

 

So to make the resetting fair, I suggested ND resets all bugged/glitched accounts and only restores them for the ones who didn't glitch/hack since ND is the only able to tell which ones did and which ones didn't.

Great idea.

Leave it since the leader boards are a joke. The people on the top have no life. Just play 10 hours each day and you will be number one. Nd should make a average kill rate leader board .

i have not once looked at the leaderboards.

Why? Because i dont give 2 **bleep** about it.

 

Id rather have ND work on things that will make this game better.

Not fix some **bleep** that has no affect on gameplay.

Honestly, I don't care, but if we're planning to do small fixes so as to not do screwing ups, might as well fix this first.

Sorry shadow, but you made this thread just to get Kudo's. I'm pretty sure when they said thread, they meant something that's detailed as to why they should remove the hacked/glitched account. Not a thread made just because you can.


Does he really need a detailed thread about why ND should remove the hackings?

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

I say why fix it, if you play any game for stats and not for fun then you are sad the leaderboard is just for people to say im better than you.

 

Do you know how many people boost and cheat just to get higher on the leaderboard this is in any game thats why you see people hack the leaderboard kids put the top score on the leaderboard so people will say he is the best just sad if it was up to me there would be no leaderboard the stats can stay only if it just shows your wins and objective points no loses and no KDR.

 

 You would still be able look at the leaderboard at the ND website but only at the ND website not in the game.
