    COD4 rank...

    does it automatically know how far along you are by the CD key or if you have a massive crash/wipe/reinstall do you have to start all over again?

    No it's not linked to your CD key, it's all stored on your PC (even though it's use is for online... Activision.... )

    You'll have to backup your profile. If you crashed you can always use a Lvl55 hack, not a Punkbuster hack or anything that manipulates your game to get you banned, it just makes your profile Lvl55 and you got all the weaps and continue from there.

    I suppose so, I don't see it as a cheat/hack if you've reached Lvl55 and completed all weapons it's the same as that

    Though starting again might be fun as people will get pissed that a Lvl1 is killing them good

    Most probably was in two ways, 1) Saving on server costs, 2) CDKEY stored in reg as plain text = trojan/keylogger devs dream, more people re-buy the game if their key gets stolen/banned.

    I submitted a suggestion to store the key into an online account to which you login to then it can never be stolen or used on another account unless the main holder removes it. Not surpisingly I didn't receive a response or acknowledgement. We'll see how CoD5 goes...

    Ahh well I can see why it's not cricket then
    You'll move up fast now you're used to it. Lvl 55 is easily reachable after 24h of playtime
