A few days ago, it was discovered by several people (A fan’s callout tweet) that someone by the name of KGVD5* on PlayStation Network, had hacked and ruined the leaderboards of most if not a whole lot of levels of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, with the “record number of 00:00:01”, unfairly surpassing a lot of skilled players/fans who have been constantly trying their best to beat each other’s records in a competitive way. The whole thing gets worse with Activision’s response to few people on Twitter regarding this fiasco (A response tweet), directing people to go after Sony (PlayStation) for inquiries about the removal of this hack.
I’ve tried via a tweet and a private message, no avail so far and I’m not sure if anything will be done about this issue. Let’s just hope that someone with some decency and control punishes KGVD5* for his unfair advantage and hacking activities for online leaderboards/components.
*Notice: Please do not contact or engage with KGVD5, report him to Sony for hacking the leaderboards (TOS breach) and putting a lot of people at a unfair advantage.
