I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar experience: Last night I'm playing with my partner - we're not the best or anything, but we've been playing together for months now and are pretty damn good. We play these two guys in the hospital, once at sabotage, once in neutralization, both sides per mode and completely OWN them everytime. I was scratching my head because they weren't doing typical newbie things, they were just exceptionally poor players. Anyway, after each round they accuse us of cheating, which is rediculous because my buddy and I play straight up - no glitches or anything at all. Finally after the last round one of them starts screaming at us saying how we're such cheaters and he has a linux computer and he's got our IP addresses and proof of cheating and was contacting Xbox Live. We couldn't understand why he was doing this and I got sick of the screaming so I booted them.

Now, I'm not concerned in the least bit because we weren't cheating at all. But I wanted to know if this is possible, or if this is just some unusually talented loser. I don't doubt there's a way to get the IP addresses - that seems like basic script kiddie "I'm a hax0r" stuff there, but has anyone heard of this other stuff with linux - cheat detection and stuff? And has anyone run into them too? I know I can't post tags - his had something to do with a midget and his partner had a pretty offensive name with the "F-word" and "B-tches" in it. I suspect this is just the world's lamest prank they pull for kicks because they're really just the most laughably bad players I've seen since I started playing this game. Just wanted to check with the group...

it isn't unheard of to whoop some players glitch free and then be accused of glitching. HAppens all the time.

Obviously, but I was more wondering if anyone knew if the whole linux monitoring xbox live is possible. It sounds like BS to me, but you never know...

I wouldn't worry about it. Even if they did report you I doubt much would happen. All you have to worry about is not playing with jerks.

I've you weren't cheating, then what are your worries about? I shouldn't be concerned if anyone is accusing u of cheating if u haven't. UBIsoft won't simply ban u'r ip because one is saying he saw u cheating.
So, just continue owninghttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yeah, and they don't ban your IP if a dozen people saw you cheating either, thats why feedback is useless. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif

I doubt that guy would do anything. A lot of people talk tough online and say stuff that the actually cant do. 90% of trash talkers are small insecure gamers who only talk trash when the have miles and miles of internet between them and the other players.

You know: a couple of friends of mine who don't cheat or scream and stuff actually got a mail from microsoft saying that they if they got anymore negative feedback that they would terminate their accounts. Nothing has happend yet but this would really suck if this actually happens to you, though you need lots of negative feedback before they actually warn you i guess. Also: if you send feedback multiple times to 1 person it becomes invalid, that's what I heard.

The stuff about feedback I did not know - thanks for the info. Although it does appear that only in the rarest of cases would it help with cheaters/harassment, etc. Its just so annoying that these people exist and contribute nothing to the world other than misery to anyone cooler than them. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

No kidding. On the PS2 version today, I was playing someone who claimed he had invented some technique, and that he was so great. I kindly requested we go 1 on 1, just to see how I would match up against this guy(he was level 3, I was lvl2).

Warehouse
10 mins
4 lives for him, 3 for me, ranked game.

We start it out, and he gets to the top catwalk, and begins perform his special move(which is just 1 of every grenade). I turn, charge out of the smoke, and kill him. Repeat this 2 more times, and that was the match. He hadnt even TOUCHED me, and I would have beaten him, but with 30 seconds left on the timer, he launches the lobby, then bans me.

It's not so much that I'm mad because I didnt gain the points from beating him, but the fact that he would do such a thing. Little sissy, that what he was.
