The stories that some of these idiots come up with are really quite something.
(Thanks, Atom Bomb!)
You learn new things about that stupid Call Of Duty game everyday. What is an UMP and what is “rushing”? I’m guessing hardscoping is the same as quickscoping.
Yet another little fartknocker pretending to be the victim instead of the instigator to cover his up his sin of trying to sell modding services.
A UMP is a type of firearm, classified in the game as a sub-machine gun, this gun actually exists so you learned something new about real life as well. :D Not sure on rushing or hardscoping though, as people don’t always use terms the same way (which is why some of this crap gets so confusing). It annoys me to no end that these people have become so common in the online shooter community, I honestly used to have a great amount of fun playing the first Modern Warfare online with some clan mates. Our encounters with d-bags like this guy were few and far-between, in the more recent entries though, these pricks are a dime a dozen and giving the genre a stigma that only people like this play. Maybe when the trend dies out online FPS games can go back to being fun, not holding my breath on that one though.
‘Hardscoping’ is generally used as a disparaging term to those who hold down the ‘Aim’ button and use a sniper rifle how it should be used, i.e. zooming in and trying to shoot distant targets.
As opposed to ‘quickscoping’ which is abusing the built-in aim assist of the Call of Duty games. Most shooters have an expanding cross-hair that tightens up when you are stationary, and spreads out when you are running/getting injured. It also tightens when you hold down the ‘AIm’ button.
So ‘quickscoping’ refers to holding down the ‘AIm’ button just long enough for the cross-hair to be dead-on target, then firing/releasing ‘Aim’ and letting the aim assist carry it home. (And since it’s a sniper rifle, it’s generally going to be a one-shot kill)
There is also ‘trick shotting’ which is doing stupid things like spinning 360 degrees, jumping down while spinning, etc. so it looks super cool on kill-cams/montages, ‘no scoping’ which is not using the ‘Aim’ button at all, and ‘proscoping’ which I’m honestly not sure what it is, as it just looks like quick scoping from what I’ve seen.
This video features an 8 year old trying to show quickscoping, no scoping, and proscoping: http://youtu.be/BFSKrZUsAfo
An 8 year old playing an M rated game with little to no supervision (at one point you can see he sent ‘f*** of’ in a message) and an immature manchild ‘trolling’ on Xbox Live/PSN, the epitome of Junkyard America.
Hardscoping is, believe it or not, aiming with a sniper rifle. If you actually aim with a sniper rifle, as opposed to no-scoping or quickscoping, you are considered a noob.
Really? Really? Oh my god…
“He was using that gun the way it was intended to be used! What a loser!”
Now that Slayer has defined it, yeah, I’ve seen this pop up in a few games of MW3. You would be absolutely AMAZED how often people get pissed at you for using equipment properly or by even playing like you have a brain. It’s mind-boggling, and also one of the many reasons why my copy of MW3 now resides with Gamestop, lol.
There’s a lot of reasons I don’t tend to play or like competitive MP games, this just added a new one.
Wow using a Scoped Weapon and aiming at the same time, I can’t believe they missed that one. Totally an unfair advantage that needs to be patched out, next they’ll be playing the game on a High Def TV, with both eyes open and Surround sound system so you can hear people sneak up behind you.
I am generally not a fan of the cheap tactic, the two person team in a racing game where the guest is just driving the track backwards to help the main win is just BS IMO. That being said when my friends and I play together we have an unoffical rule. We don’t nuke each other we out drive each other and nuke everyone else. That no nuking thing never lasts long, than there’s revenge than any form of alliance is broken.
*** Breaking News ***
An old (like really old) man on Xbox reportedly has a magical JTAG Xbox that he can use to ban the accounts of players who do not comply with his directives on what weapons to use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. A recent victim stated that he was threatened in the second round of an Invasion game of Search and Destroy that if he did not stop using a particular sub-machine gun that his account would be banned, a situation analogous an associate of this individual who was similarly banned for hardscoping and rushing, but that this associate did not come forward to a forum subsequent to his banning. This old (like really old) man is also reportedly indifferent as to whether the user accounts of those he has banned have recently put Microsoft points on their accounts.
Those who have been banned by this individual are facing a substantial decision because these bans from Xbox Live require them to switch to PlayStation3. More on this story as it develops.
I think this poor Ryan guy is Legit. This older Gentlemen must be Ruben, who else would have the hacking skills to get you banned without even being there. Ruben has stepped up his game, no longer does he even need to come around to your house and coerce you into fetching him a drink or sandwich. He just doesn’t like your gun online and Bans you from his Hidden Mountain Fortress guarded by Bruce Norris and Chuck Lee clones.
I like how he incorporates recently “bought” points in to his story, as if a moderator is going to look at it and think “This looks bad, he’s clearly been selling services through Xbox Liv- Oh nevermind, he says he bought $240 worth of points.”.
As ammusing as the first part is, I really DO hate the copy/paste response of XBLPET Bravo…
This guy was really old, like nineteen or something.
