Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3: Latest Game Patch Might Nuke your Stats
Talk about a bummer! The latest patch for Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3 was heavily anticipated by some fans. Some previous glitches needed to be taken out, Activision gets on the case and a patch gets released. Problem solved, right? Well, just like that game of Whack A Mole you play at theme parks, the wonderfully complicated world of game development can produce some unexpected glitches.
Your patch clears out one set of headaches yet create a new nastier one. What’s the glitch the latest Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3 patch brings to the table? Well, it’s nothing major if you don’t like to keep a record of your achievements and your gamescore doesn’t matter. But if you are in the remaining 99.999% of COD players, you definitely want this information. Sadly, these are precisely the game features that the latest patch clears out. While the gamescore can be possibly salvaged, it isn’t a sure thing. Also, your achievements are toast. How does the patch bug work? It seems to involve profile migration between differing xbox consoles. The overwrite happens when it looks at a certain data location and imports blank data. You can fix some of this by relogging back into Xbox Live but your achievements are still nuked. Hopefully, Microsoft can get on this case and get things ironed out. The percentage of players migrating profiles from one xbox to another is probably quite sizable considering COD’s massive installed base of players.
