Pissy Hackers Force Top-Ranked Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 Player To Reset Stats

The immaturity reeks.

Looking at leaderboards can be disenchanting. Many occasions, there are hackers or glitchers at the top of the heap just to prove they can do it. But then there are legitimate players like Xbox Live's Retrominano whose prowess at Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 placed him as top dog, the #1 rank for "Career - All Time." Apparently, to butthurt pricks, that's a crime.

As presented on Reddit, not only did random people constantly pester Retrominano and randomly join his play sessions (in some cases to grab his IP address), but he was subject to continuous Distributed Denial of Service attacks which in his words only allowed him to play "10 minutes per day."

He attempted to reset his IP multiple times but to no avail, leaving him with the only option to reset his in-game stats and return to Level 1. He's now rank #10,796,211.

So yep, another story about a few pissants ruining it for everyone else.
