Whatever you need to tell yourself. It is cheating and you can rationalize it anyway you want. Hell, you can even take the pre-emptive, tell everyone you did it, and try to feel good about it in that way. But hey do what you want, your scores won't improve and your levels will be reset at some point anyways. So hop on the glitchers bandwagon and have your fun while you can.
I did the glitch on a second account and I got bored. I went back to my main account after 2 weeks of having everything. Its not that fun when you dont get to unlock anything. I still get on it time to time to mess around and piss off my team by only using assault shields and ballistic knifes in SnD haha.
Currently playing Minecraft on my Phone, Xbox and iMac but not Ps3 :'( PSN/XBL: demo_vol1
It's a PvP game. Cheating in that type of game no matter what you gain or don't gain should get you banned. One player or co op have your fun if the players in your party are cool with it. But not PvP. I hope they hold true to what they said.
