FOV change considered a hack or not?

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
I got in a huge debate and fight with some stupid player in Crysis 2 multiplayer and he said i was hacking, i told him i wasn't and i only am using a fov change that's all. It's not considered a hack. I have been doing this since Crysis 1 and other games and i also have a widescreen monitor.

Heck i even used fov change in Battlefield 2 Bad Company to help keep my field of view better in games cuz i have a big monitor.

He claims it's a illegal modification of the game you use as a advantage. I said it's not a hack nor a cheating thing to do. Aimbot is.. wallhack is.. other sorts of stupid stuff and he says my fov change is a hack and i'm ticking them off cuz i play fast? Jeez.. can someone tell me this is not a hack right?

I have been doing this for years and i cannot believe i came across the world's stupid player in the planet saying changing your fov is cheating lol.
I really wanted to smack him around and tell him there's a difference and it's just for performance really. What are your thoughts on this? (Yes this should have been a rant.) O well.. still belongs in the gaming thread cuz it's about fov change.

Yea i knew it wouldn't be. This guy was so sure he said i was hacking. He's so stupid really, i swear to god he is probably a console gamer i dunno. I even asked him if he played Crysis 1 and he said yes. I think he's lying or otherwise he would have known the fov change isn't a hack. He probably fed himself the wrong idea from doing the wrong kind of research but i laughed a bit here cuz he's saying it's cheating.

He even said he's gonna make a screenshot and show it to crytek that i'm cheating. I told him go ahead because crytek made fov from the first game in the beginning and they know they intended to allow us change the fov and it is CONSIDERED not a hack lol. So funny eh?

Noobs tend to complain alot, and just about anything. FOV change is just for personal taste.
