Megaupload master loses Call of Duty crown

Dotcom bubble burst

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Being held in custody is bad enough for anyone accused of a crime, but when it means you'll lose the number one position on the Call of Duty ranking boards, it's really gonna hurt.

That's exactly what has happened to Megaupload mogul Kim Dotcom, who has been overtaken Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's overall statistics after just a week behind bars, VentureBeat reports.

Yes, before he was thrown in the slammer, awaiting trial, the man formerly known as Kim Shmitz had racked up over 150,000 kills in CoD:MW3, with his gamertag in top spot on the Xbox 360 and Megaracer leaderboards.

Dotcom certainly had time to massacre while locked up in the panic room New Zealand cops claim to have found him when they went round to seek his assistance in their enquiries.

Dotcom boasted a kill-to-death ratio of 2.1 and had reached level 80. All of which must have been done on a legitimate copy of the game, of course.

Unfortunately, for the alleged promoter of piracy, another obsessed FPS gamer, Arazos, has now taken the top slot. And with Dotcom's bail request denied, it seems unlikely he'll be challenging his rival any time in the near future.

Then again, we all know just how luxurious some prisons can be these days. ®
