So as hard as it is to believe, people cheat and lie to gain something as useless as Gamer Points. Achievements are useful in tracking a friends progress in a game, or even for bragging rights but to hack to get 'em? Not worth it. Now Microsoft is taking action against this cheaters, what will happen you ask?
A LIVE player who obtained their gamerscore in this abnormal way will
- Find their gamerscore reset to zero, and
- Be unable to regain all previously earned achievements, and
- Be labeled as a “cheater” for the community to view.
