MW3 Hacker or “Special Privileges”? You decide!

August 20, 2012 in ELITE, Infinity Ward, MW3, NEWS, Sledgehammer, Xbox

There is a way to go from a BRAND NEW Call of Duty MW3 account on Xbox and become 10th prestige the same evening!!!
This little story below will show that it is possible and you can decide how it was possible.
A. Jon Hacked it, or had somebody Hack it for him ( I don’t think this is the case; however, IMHO )
or
B. Jon is a “Privileged” Gamer that got a “Hook Up” from some employee of IW, BeachHead, or Activision, of which they just “gave” him 10th prestige or he asked for it and got it.

I personally think it was “B” in which case Jon in his infinite wisdom just threw some employee at one of the 3 I listed above under a bus…Scratch that…let’s make that a TANK!
But in order to fully understand this particular situation, you must understand a short “story” of what happened to poor Jon (Champion of reporting cheaters, and bashing Youtubers that think they are “Privileged” or have gotten big heads…..check his twitter feeds, you’ll see)

This story starts with a good Mate of mine (a UK buddy) suggesting I follow Noob Jon, which I did, and he seemed like a good “follow” on twitter, tweeted a lot about COD….. But soon after Jon’s Xbox gets “Wrongfully Banned” (his words) until the year 9999…..That’s a LONG TIME! ;) He then commenced to trashing Microsoft & Xbox about how he was wronged and this went ON & ON & ON, I almost deleted him then, because it was making me nauseous, because IMHO he WAS BANNED for good reason, he broke a NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement), I remember the post well, he posted a picture of the BETA Dashboard of XboxLive then later deleted it. Below is some of this info, but not all (don’t want to bore you too much, LOL)

Jon ‏@LtgMcNoob

NOTE He is INSTANTLY Prestige level 10!!!

I totally missed this one, but within the next few days, he tweeted out to BeachHead a question and show this picture:

cod-elite-app

This is when I asked him how he got to 10th prestige in with less than 6 hours played (I looked up his profile on Elite….6hrs)
His reply was he did not hack and show me proof, LOL he compared his BANNED GT next to his new (Which is identical in stats give or take a few games played, LOL)

both-elite-accounts-cod

I have a good source (Via Activision) that You CANNOT (at least you and I can’t) transfer stats from one ELITE account onto a newly created account. I pursued this further with Jon, to find out how he got this “special” treatment or Hack. (Curious reporting ;) ) And the only response I got was that “I didn’t hack or cheat, and I didn’t ASK for nothing, then was basically told to STFU and then was blocked from his twitter account. So what do you think, did he hack this, or is this the classic, It’s all about “who you know” I don’t even think Dan Amrich (OneOfSwords) could get bumped to 10th prestige (I actually don’t think HE would allow it either) At any rate, I thought I’d share this with you, as I know Jon being the “Fair” fellow that he is would want you to know exactly where fair starts and ends…………with himself. This is MY OPINION! What say you???

  1. I know exactly how he did it. And it was completely legit. No hacks at all and he didnt even ask to have this done. You should get your facts straight before posting lies. And just an FYI, you have absolutely NO sources in Activision. Because its is possible to transfer stats. He didnt do it himself. But someone in one of the companies offered to do it for him because of his wrongful ban on his other console due to a Microsoft screw up. Lol.

  2. his facts are straight. you can see the images and quotes yourself. and “wrongfully banned” dont make me laugh we all saw the images he posted and since deleted. he can complain all he wants but as an “adult” and an admin of a gaming site he should learn to speak to people with respect. you can go back and view the whole conversation on his twitter and you can see that not once did myself or CODBUNKER once make childish comments or lower the tone of the conversation but he did multiple times.
    i suppose it is nice to have friends who make games but i am sure when it is found out who did this for him certain people will be getting into trouble. watch this —> space <—–

  3. @ Derp

    Hi Jon!

  4. Had a look at the cod forums, the IW CM is “looking into this”

    I’m sure Jon/ltgmcnoob is a nice guy, but on twitter and the CI forums he comes across as a complete asshole.

    Maybe is just a asshole (online & offline)

  5. Hey DERPa Derpa,
    Reading the latter part of your comment, you summarized EXACTLY what I was implying, yet you summarized it as FACT…Then you call me a liar???? LOL, are you stupid, I really don’t think so, I just think maybe you are mad, so re-read my post, then what you wrote and tell me how they differ, because if I am a liar then you just did with you summary

    On the “You don’t have a source, nana nana boo boo” OH YES I DO (more than one btw) but what does that have to do with the price of rice in China (don’t go crazy, that last statement was a metaphor…ok) My statement on “can’t be done” read a lil further (at least you and I can’t) is what I said, meaning the “non-privileged”

    He stated he did not hack, and I beleived him, we ALL know (those of us smart enough) that a person “hooked” him up, that’s what I implied, that’s what you said as well
    So have a nice day Josh :P

  6. Josh,

    WRT:
    “And just an FYI, you have absolutely NO sources in Activision. ”
    Exactly how did you get into my phone contacts & email contacts and confirm this……….Who’s a liar now? I actually wouldn’t call you a liar for that, just someone mad, running their mouth, because they have NO WAY of knowing who I know and don’t know :P

  7. If anyone thinks mcnoob is a nice guy.. yeah right he’s an arogant little pleb

    and if anyone wants to know why he changed his name to ltgmcnoob it was to distance himself from this

    http://themindofmac.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/operation-majormcspongebobsquaretrololo.html

  8. According to the support documentation, Activision doesn’t do this.

    http://support.activision.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Transfering-ELITE-Premium-Membership/

    More bad decisions from the IW camp? NO WAI! – We shouldn’t be surprised though. When the IW ban/enforcement team decided to create a community group and allow those select users to be prioritized over the rest of us, it was a clear sign that things were going down hill. They embraced a group of circle jerking wanks and also let the Steam community rot. This simply adds to the list of reasons why not to trust anything they say or intend.

  9. “This issue has been resolved.”

    I’m a PS3 user so can’t check his Elite stats….can anyone check it to see if its been “resolved” the way we want it to be?

  10. 016,
    You sir, are correct, I just checked his stats, and he is now level zero prestige, as it should be, fairness to ALL, my faith in ATVI is restored (I knew they would do the right thing anyway, ATVI & COD Community really do try IMHO)

  11. @BuckeyeTC

    Result!

    Wonder what the little prick will have to say about that!

  12. 0 prestige lvl 64. Would have preferred level 0 as well but will take what we can get

  13. I have to say, it kinda surprised me to see my name in this post.

  14. Also, get the f*ck over it…. he got his rank back so what?

  15. I didn’t really want to give any specific opinions on this as I couldn’t really care less but I find it necessary because this petty bullshit is pushing me over the edge. To start, why on earth are people arguing over a video game rank. I mean seriously. Is this how you people actually get entertainment? Anyway to the point it’s clear he was offered it form an inside source and having been given that offer he took it, maybe he was wrong to do so and the source was wrong for giving the help but to be truly honest, if you were good friends with any number of developers who could help you and if one did after you had been console banned and lost everything from your profile, I challenge any of you who sit high and mighty saying it’s a disgrace to the community to really ask yourself and then swear on something precious to you that you would say no because I know I sure as hell wouldn’t say no. And to go further I don’t see how you can say that he must have hacked back a new elite sub as there is no way you could possibly know if he had that given to him as anyone can buy 4200 MSP and buy it or get a code from most retailers & if it’s all down to the fact it’s a founder elite profile then it’s still possible to get hold of founder codes which were in the hardened edition which would give founder status at any point before the expiration date of this November. So to just end of I’d like to make the point that anyone who could possibly say no to the offer of a stat transfer after being banned is bullshitting to the highest degree. I’m not saying what he did was right, I’m saying it was a morally grey area which in my opinion he was judged unfairly by people who had previously altercations with him and quite clearly have a personal vendetta set against him, not naming names obviously. So anyway that’s my bit. Hope it opens your eyes to your own negligence.

  16. @imparital i have no vendeta against him i just saw something i disagreed with and made my views public and passed over the information to some people who could look into it. i followed jon on twitter for a while and slowly grew fed up of his arrogant nature. i put up with it and even helped him at times reffering him to other people i follow when he asked questions. but his high and mighty elitest attitude grinds on people and he still hasnt learnt looking at his twitter feed declaring anyone who disagreed as children hiding behind a screen. i never hide and i am no child. i have spent more time in worn torn countries than he has spent playing games about them. Charlie Intel was set up to try to be a corner of the gaming community and he was chosen as an admin, but his way of dealing with people and the way he speaks to them is bringin CI to shame. i fell sorry for the people who worked hard to get them to where they are for someone like him to bring it into disrepute.

  17. Impartial,

    “why on earth are people arguing over a video game rank. I mean seriously. Is this how you people actually get entertainment?”
    ~Ummm, I believe that the developers put the Prestige Mode in for just that…..Entertainment/Achievement, are you suggesting they just remove them?

    ” Anyway to the point it’s clear he was offered it form an inside source and having been given that offer he took it”
    ~TRUE!

    ” I challenge any of you who sit high and mighty saying it’s a disgrace to the community to really ask yourself and then swear on something precious to you that you would say no because I know I sure as hell wouldn’t say no”
    ~Umm WRONG, I DID!!! I accidentally reset myself and without getting anyone in trouble I will NEVER mention how/whom/etc, had the opportunity for it to be restored since I didn’t understand what I did, READ HERE:
    http://www.codbunker.com/mw3/reset-stats-mw3-what-happens/ Well GUESS WHAT….I SAID NO (OMG hard to believe huh!), my thought is “I” screwed up, even though it was vague, but “I” took responsibility for the my mistake & the MAIN reason of not wanting to “restored” is because of how it would look to the community (plus I was NOW CHALLENGED :) ) I’m about to reach 17th tonight BTW :)

    “how you can say that he must have hacked back a new elite sub”
    ~Someone mentioned that, and I corrected them and stated that they ARE available (I even have an extra code I may give away)

    “So to just end of I’d like to make the point that anyone who could possibly say no to the offer of a stat transfer after being banned is bullshitting to the highest degree”
    ~I did after resetting MYSELF, not a ban, which some may be more sympathetic to, so feel free to call me BS to the highest degree, you are entitled to your OPINION factual or not

    As far as the Vendetta’s I would concur that there does seem to be some, yet after hearing some of their stories, I can see their angst. The whole point of this post was that, if you take time to read this boys twitter timeline, you will see, and undertone of arrogance, and entitlement, and That’s why I will agree that this boy is certainly a Tool!! But most important, is I love Call of Duty & Activision & the community, and I felt this type of attitude towards something that is ‘unfair’ takes away from the Franchise and Community, and I NEVER want to see this happen, I can go on, but I think I will do a Vlog on a follow up of this story then, KILL IT

    The answer to that is no its not because you actually earned that on your new account.

  19. @impartial.

    Facts:
    He wasn’t offered he asked someone he sucks up to in activisionUK , there’s a big difference.

    He was rightly banned from xbl. It’s no different to getting a console ban for doing some thing in another game ‘That’s happened to a lot of people they don’t ask or get a new account with ready made stats.

    Infinity ward WEREN’T aware of him getting a new account hence infinity ward when they found out had his stats changed.Doesn’t matter how much he whines and insults what he referred to as kids in the cod community .End of the day IW changed his stats as THEY weren’t happy with what had happened. In fact they have actually apologised to some people publicly for it happening in the first place.

    As for vendetta’s everything he gets he brings on himself including this.. had he not done his usual trick of trying to show off on twitter ,people wouldn’t have been aware of his new stats and noticed something was screwy.

    That’s mcnoobs biggest problem he lords over people like he is something special, when he isn’t. Constantly hinting he knows stuff but never actually saying what, always making a point of saying he’s played online with some activision or IW staff, There’s nothing special in that lots of people play with the cod devs and activision staff, they unlike mcnoob don’t make a habit of bragging about it.
    The irony is no one would tell him anything his track record for spreading fake news, posting leaks and that whole episode where he almost got charlieintel sued by xbox magazine for posting copyrighted screengrabs . He’s rude to people on twitter for no reason and comes across as some sort of “special” person.

    Look at his tweets today all he has gone on about all day is being reset inbetween saying that he wasn’t bothered about being reset. He’s also spent most of the day blaming codbunker which is funny as it wasn’t even codbunker who spoke to IW. It was yet another in a long line of people he’s insulted for no reason.

    If you ask me he’s nothing but a sad little boy hiding behind a twitter handle with a serious case of Münchausen syndrome (google it).

    The saddest thing is what he does and his friends do and say reflect on charlieintel, which is a shame as by doing so they have reduced what was potentially a decent website into something most of the devs and cod community look at as a joke.
    Just to reiterate doesn’t matter who he tries to blame, fact is IW reset him as they didn’t agree with the “favour” he asked for.

  20. BuckeyeTC,

    “Ummm, I believe that the developers put the Prestige Mode in for just that…..Entertainment/Achievement, are you suggesting they just remove them?”
    I was more referring to the argument itself.

    “Umm WRONG, I DID!!! I accidentally reset myself and without getting anyone in trouble I will NEVER mention how/whom/etc, had the opportunity for it to be restored since I didn’t understand what I did”
    Fair enough, I probably should have said most people would accept rather than anyone.

    “The whole point of this post was that, if you take time to read this boys twitter timeline, you will see, and undertone of arrogance, and entitlement, and That’s why I will agree that this boy is certainly a Tool!! But most important, is I love Call of Duty & Activision & the community, and I felt this type of attitude towards something that is ‘unfair’ takes away from the Franchise and Community”
    But hadn’t you said earlier that you had been offered help to return to your level so couldn’t it be said that problem in the matter of unfairness is more with Developers/Community Managers/PR than the people who are offered them.

    Facts,

    “He wasn’t offered he asked someone he sucks up to in activisionUK , there’s a big difference.”
    How can you know that, he is good friends with many of the UK PR people/CM but you can’t know for sure whether or not he was offered it or not.

    “He was rightly banned from xbl.”
    Your opinion clearly not mine. I have several friends who did the same thing Jon did but were not banned. As well as this I had a thorough discussion with Xbox Support about the NDA as soon as I signed it and in all honesty, from what they told me, he didn’t break it.

    “Infinity ward WEREN’T aware of him getting a new account hence infinity ward when they found out had his stats changed.Doesn’t matter how much he whines and insults what he referred to as kids in the cod community .End of the day IW changed his stats as THEY weren’t happy with what had happened. In fact they have actually apologised to some people publicly for it happening in the first place.”
    Clearly someone at IW/ACTI/Beachhead was aware of the situation or it wouldn’t have occurred in the first place. They changed his stats because of an outrage from community members, it’s unlikely they would say something along the lines of, “Oh yes we were aware but didn’t think there would be this bad a response.” It’s evident that someone knew.

    “If you ask me he’s nothing but a sad little boy hiding behind a twitter handle with a serious case of Münchausen syndrome (google it).”
    In what kind of world is it where we start using a disease of the mind like Münchausen syndrome as an insult. I really don’t see how to argue back against what is basically in the same frame as the “Reductio ad Hitlerum”.

    “The saddest thing is what he does and his friends do and say reflect on charlieintel, which is a shame as by doing so they have reduced what was potentially a decent website into something most of the devs and cod community look at as a joke.”
    You think one person who isn’t even a staff writer or in fact proper staff member will reflect that badly that it will stop 1000s of people from visiting the site. It’ll be a sad day when a person can destroy a website that easily. The fact is he is a fan of CI & a long time contributer, not an evil maniac behind the scenes pulling the cords to how the website looks in the pulic eye.

  21. My final statement:
    Impartial,
    IRT:
    “But hadn’t you said earlier that you had been offered help to return to your level so couldn’t it be said that problem in the matter of unfairness is more with Developers/Community Managers/PR than the people who are offered them.”

    That is TRUE! TBH, that’s why I was “prying” him for the truth (In hopes that he’d DM me what I already knew) so I could “quietly” approach Devs/CM’s/PR etc that A. This ding dong “accidentally” flaunted his 10th status (without thinking imho) B. they need to “fix” this as others had already started to complain. BECAUSE I KNOW politics happen in the industry/community, but when “outed” to save face and integrity of the COD Franchise, it needed to be addressed. I will also admit that I did bring myself to a “lesser” level overall with this, because, yes I was pissed at his ostentatious attitude and telling me to STFU…etc so for this I do apologize. So I’m done with this……I hope ;)

    PEACE!
