I am someone that holds myself to a high standard when it comes to everything that I chose to do. Those that state that "this is just a game" when justifying the decisions they've made, obviously don't feel as I do.

Ethics or not, cheating takes away the fun of the game, not just for your enemies but also for yourself. To me even an all gold army would take the fun away from the game. It was no different when we were 10 using Idkfa and iddqd. What's the fun in a game that is no longer a challenge.

People never cease to amaze me.

Have you ever heard phrases similar to these?
I want it, and you got one, so why can't I have two?
The world owes me.
You had 2,000 of them, and all I needed was 100.
I'll do anything, except working, to get the things I want.
It costs too much, and stealing it was so easy.
If you don't get caught, you didn't do anything.

On second thought, companies never cease to amaze me, either.

At the end of the day, we are left with our ethics and morals. Fictional armies don't matter. A win/loss record doesn't matter. If you compromise them for something meaningless, you will also compromise them when something is meaningful. Give someone a choice between right and wrong when the consequences and benefits seem small and you'll find out what they'll do when they're faced with REAL ethical/moral decisions.

I will not let it keep me from believing in others. If you are always guarded to prevent others from dissapointing you, tou wont always be able to experience the benifits of comrades and freindships. I might let a new found friend into my home, but i wont give him the keys to my home. I might feed him if he is hungry, but not give him my credit card to buy himself a meal.

Ethics - best put as someone already said - doing the right thing even when no is looking.

So in most States certain drugs are illegal - if a person does them against the law - isn't that unethical? Then if the people of your state vote to make that drug legal - did the state now decide for you that smoking pot is suddenly ethical? No! The truth is - you have your own internal compass that guides you. If you are not a pot smoker - making it legal will not suddenly make you want to try pot. (I'm not for or against smoking pot - it's not for me - but I don't care what you do in your time - I'm just using this as an example since it is a current issue)

If you are not a hacker or a cheater - then finding and easy hack or cheat will not make you exploit it and use it. If cheating or taking short cuts is part of your moral fiber - then when a gray line appears - you will argue that gray area is an ok place to be.

It's not wise to judge men by their words - but rather - to measure them by their actions. Sometimes when the actions are questionable - you can gather their intent by their reactions.

Everyone has their weaknesses - and sometimes temptation is just too much to bear - but usually temptation is just a cheerleader for bringing out your true colors. When your true colors are exposed - you either own them - or realize that you don't like them and change them. The worst color of all is the Yellow one who tries to hide their true colors and try to make you believe that their Yellow stripe is really a noble blue stripe.

With all that said - I believe in second chances when someone admits they had a moment of weakness ( and maybe even a short relapse ) but once seeing the reaction to their mistake when it is in full light - realize that this is a path they should never follow again - then THAT person is worthy of forgiveness.

"doing the right thing even when no is looking" - Mcdoc

Never heard this before but seems to wrap up nicely what an ethical position looks like. However, there are times in the game when knowing what is the right thing to do gets a bit fuzzy, aren't there? See no ethical problem with those with money buying an advantage with gold; got no problem farming a loot drop that is available through normal game play and is now public knowledge; no probem with hitting someone about my level 20 times to hit valor goals; DO have a problem with hacking and obvious cheats; would be disappointed with players who promise one thing and then do another, for example form some kind of alliance but end up working on the inside for a competing team; my fuzzy area would be something like a cash-rich target 50 or 60 levels below me that I could feed off 24/7 - fuzzy because I could do this within the parameters of a (broken) game i.e. the game puts the shark and a tadpole together, so the shark could reasonably expect to enjoy his meal without worrying if it was 'right' or not. For myself, I prefer to stay away from this foggy area, because even if it's a matter of doing the right thing when nobody is looking, one has to be able to see clearly what is being done and perhaps even bring a bit of foresight into play.

Tc, those are the things that are wrong and right to you, and im glad that you follow what is right in your mind. Wish everyone did the same. This is a war game, and we all suposedly came to war. I would say that some of the things that tou have issues with in tour case, that i do not. I have played the game from the begining, so my main game did not see many at higher levels who attacked me. At the same time, there were times people who were at lower levels were stronger than i who did attack me. I dont believe levels really have much to do with anything once you are above 100 and can bring all your units to battle. I have lower games who get attacked by much igher levels, and much stronger players. Its all fine as i was aare of the rules and how he game is played, and have no issues with being attacked. It always seemed the only ones who had any moral objevtions to this setup were the ones being attacked, yet al ost in every case, when i read their boards, they were doing exactly the same thing themslves. If someone has issues with the rules of a game, and question the ethicsof those rules, i would never play the game to begin with. Many have determined that forming a group for defense or attacks, is not right, yet gree has said they ntend to introduce just that, and many seem excited about it. Make no mistake, this came about becausethey noticed the succes of the pirates in the game and said what if. I will not even try to equate the so called grey areas you are speaking of to that of outright cheating. If someone feels its not ethical to allow high spenders to compete directly with free players, again, i personaly would never play the game, or upon finding out about this, i would stop if the game itslef produced this kind of ethical dilema for me. If i truly belived this, then i would feel that most of the playersin the game are also unethical people. I have no issue if you or anyone choses to limit their play on different aspects of the game to one that makes them feel comfortable, just as i have no issues with your, or anyones elses right to belive in the faith of their choice. I would not feel that they are wrong for their belief in a faith that is different from mine, or in some ways contridicts portions of mine. I dont feel as if i stand on a higher moral ground because i believe in my faith, as opposed to theirs. I consider this right to personal choice. This is not a question of ethics. If i took what you said another step further, what about the emotional discomfort you may give another p,ayer who has the same exact stats as you, by attacking him. I have had p,ayers who i felt might be very unstable get quite upset with me who were just as strong as i was, and i have had ones much weaker who were lighthearted about the whole thing. Maybe i should not attavk at all, as the level that seem players seem to be upset is very high at times. Should i do this to another person. Is this ethical. In my mond this is more of an ethical question than strength, or level. If i went a galagher show and sat in the front row, should i be upset by being showered with bits of smashed fruit and their juices? Should galagher not perform his show because i might be upset at this? I think thats close to the same as concern about where you step as you may squash an ant.

Well I play zombies a lot on black ops 1 and 2 and I know of glitches where you can sit there and the zombies can't get you . I don't do them because no.1 it is soo boring and unrewarding to do that and no.2 you can usually tell who has done it from there score to round ratio , I start a game with them sometimes thinking they are good and then they keep dieing because they can't play it's funny . They do it for the high score but can't back it up in game play so they look stupid , 1 of the maps I got to 52 rounds and I did it with skill from putting in the hours and learning how to play . It is much more rewarding and much more fun , some people want to do it for real and be a good player , some want a fake score to look good but they don't look good when they can't play they look stupid .
No way I would risk 10 months of playing this game for a cheat and if I did I would lose all pride and satisfaction . I want to follow maverick who is the one player in the game I respect the most because he has done it the hard way and done well, he's not the strongest but I think he is one of the best for me.

He did not listen to advice before he did what he did, he did not listen during, and he has not listened after. Guess he gave all his " friends" the big raspberry.

The people who have talked directly to me should know my stance on this. I'll let my record stand.

Ethics or morals start with the individual. People can change over time. But like McDoc stated, doing the right thing even when no one asked shows your character. I drew the line in the sand for myself a long time ago. Many people have asked me repeatedly if I know how to cheat. Of course I do as it comes inherently from a good understanding of the data files. Do I hack/cheat? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Knowing how to how to do something which is wrong, but choosing not to do is one of the best signs of your morals and ethics. Again, morals/Ethics start with YOU.

You can't control the morals or actions of other people, but you can provide wisdom and advice to people select the right decisions themselves. You can't use force to change people ideas or ethics, the change has to start with them and grow. All you can do is plant the seed.

FYI, I wouldn't take too much for granted on a hacker site. I've seen the same thing myself. Many names can be similar or duplicated. I could easily go create a account on a hack site and call it Pirate Justice and if you have ever at any point in time provided a picture of your base, I could provide that too and claim to be you. There are probably 20 Mavericks in the game I've come across and I've been mistaken for a few. I was even forwarded articles on sites when someone was researching "hacks" to detemine if someone was cheating (they don't). When I looked at one back in Aug where hackers were complaining about snitches and being shutdown one mentioned an article on the the MW forum here providing the link. The thread in the MW forum was created by Wdigeorge himself and I was at the very top of the thread responding to Speed ump along with JMC and many others. I had never reported the hack and didn't know it existed until after it was closed and someone came across it, but it seemd to brand me as a snitch. LOL. I myself have been a target of hackers because of my name and involvement here in the forum. So moral is don't assume anything by simple names matching.

I would appreciate you contacting me though privately to discuss some things. George, AO and miner know how to reach me. You don't use PM here in the forum.

If Gree were smart, they'd start a Snitch Program.

You turn in a hacker, you get a vault of gold, if your accusations are founded.

Heck, maybe we should start such a program, Stephen.

We do have the resources.

Now, I'd spend a $100 to help clean this place up a bit!


Hey, I am a snitch when it comes to hackers. Please come find me, all hackers. I have no issue being branded in this manner.

Back on topic. Ethics is key if you wish to survive in any group. Those who do not agree to this are entitled to their opinion but for sure will leave the group sooner than they wished for.

I always try to play ethically and honorably. Now the hard part. I might think what i am,doing is honorable and ethical, but someone else my think what I am doing is down right wrong. Only thing i have ever asked if you disagreed with something i had done, be honest with me, bring it to my attention. I would/will change what i had been doing. Even warfare there are rules, ie geneva convention.

There are grey areas for sure. There are different opinions for sure and what was ethical yesterday may be unethical tomorrow. Respect and communication will solve this though.

That just sets gree and whoever offers the reward up to be gamed... hacker operates legit account, creates hacked accounts, reports them, collects rewards for legit account.

For some people, gaming the system is the game.

My take on it. I understand some platforms/games. Even the devs look forward to seeing what hackers can do but I don't think that's the case for this game. Same goes with say socom on ps3. Glitches, modders, theirs always bound to be some, but in that game, it's like, alright, at least go take it to the unranked rooms. For this game. People spend real money, and all players spend a whole lot of time. If a hacker wants to showboat to his/ her hacker buddies to show what they can do,whatever, but when they start affecting other legitimate players,it needs to be stopped. What I never understood though. I'm not computer savvy, some of these hackers. If you have high computer knowledge, why waste it on an app game. Create a website,generate some money, find out if ufos are real, who really killed JFK, something constructive to some extent.

So you would think. From what I've seen it not all that advanced. It's just knowing what order to do a few things in. So I don't believe they're smart enough to make real money doing it

1) Everyone wants there to be rules, honor, and the expectation of doing the right thing.

EXCEPT... when it comes to themselves.. in that case they want to be the exception..


In my world I deal with people who expect the rules to be followed except they want themselves to be the exception.....

Since our last thread that invovled this subject seems to have offended someone, i thought i would see how everyone felt on this subject. Is honor,or ethics, a reasonable expectation from ourselves, or should it be anything goes?

The honorable man is one his brothers will lay it all down for and he himself will strive to never allow them to have to make that choice. His honor is defined and judged in all that he does and he is aware of her presence in every act, every thought, every word, every breath. He cherishes honor and reveres it. His brothers know his word is his bond and not even the shadow of death will make him betray it. This is just a game and one where anonymity is an ally. But honor matters. You are defined by your honor or your lack there of.*

It appears that 85 percent of us know or care what ethics are. At least some are honest that they don't care.

Speed, I am quite sure, that hackers were not very active in voting. Plus such percentage (85%) is not high for me personally. For me it is remaining 15%, which is absolutely too high.
There is a saying that spoon of oil can damage whole barrel with honey. 15% is not a spoon.

Ethics is key. Period (for me).

I agree, did not realize anyone would think i tought that was a high number. It is intresting to see what the people in the forum here think, and i imagine the percentage may be even lower in the rest og the game population. I would guess that the playrs who care more are more likely to be part of the forums.

Oh no, we've dropped, it appears more people showed up who think there's no place for any scruples in the game. Those of you who have voted this way, speak up and present your point of view
