Modern Warfare 3 was suffering from some hacked lobbies earlier today, and they have now been completely fixed up and patched. The speed/slow hack lobbies have been resolved according to Robert Bowling, the Global Community Manager for Infinity Ward. He said “Thanks for all the reports of Speed / Slo-mo lobbies, with your help, we found & addressed in under 12 hours! Keep reporting MW3 feedback.” on his twitter.
This is probably a record for finding an issue on a multiplayer game and patching it up in a flash. Infinity Ward takes their games seriously and I don’t say that with any form of sarcasm or snark whatsoever. You can read about the hacked lobby issue here in great detail if you missed it. Now where’s that guy that was asking why people would pay for XBL, this is why, they have a budget to have tons of manpower to find and resolve these issues with deals with developers. Good on Infinity Ward to sort this out before it became a true problem.
If you come across bugs in Modern Warfare 3, you can be rest assured that Infinity Ward, unlike some multiplayer developers I’ve seen, will get right on fixing it as soon as they can. Tempted to pick it up just for that to be honest.
