Jailed Megaupload Founder Loses His Call of Duty Crown

Bizarrely, the imprisoned founder of file-sharing site Megaupload - Kim Dotcom, formerly Kim Schmitz—was also until this week the world's number one Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 gamer on Xbox Live.

A week in the slammer will do things to your top ranking, though, and while he's been cooling off in a New Zealand cell, competing Call of Duty gamer Arazos has overtaken him. And since it doesn't look like Dotcom will be out and gaming any time soon, Arazos' status as world champ may be safe for the foreseeable future.

I wish people would stop saying the world champ. Just because you have more points and kills because you play the game way more than others doesn't make you the world champion. The only relevant stat that should be used to determine who is the best is Kill/Death ratio (provided you have a decent amount of kills obviously, like 1000 minimum and don't boost in any way).
