Top gamer resets stats to avoid harassment

hacker news

A top Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 player has reset his scores in order to avoid continual harassment and DDoS attacks on his account.

According to a Reddit thread, the player who goes under the name “Retrominano,” was apparently top of the Black Ops 2 player lists on Xbox Live, and constantly received personal attacks from “jealous players”.

Instead of trying to deal with all the hassle he was getting, Retrominano thought it was easier to just reset his account and start from scratch again.

According to some of the comments, this isn’t the first time Retrominano has done this, as he previously reset his Modern Warfare 2 stats out of “boredom”.
