Is it true that...
there are some hackers out there with the ability to break your wii just by being online and having your ip adress? I am getting worried because i made a guy mad and he threatened that he will get hackers to break my wii. If there are, what should i do about it?

No dont believe it. They are talking bullshit. Worst you could do is mess with the leaders and vets of Red X clan and they will zero you out.

Actually, we could do worse then ablackguy said, and I've heard a rumor of brick wii script but I highly doubt it'd work.
Also, the wii doesn't even use your IP address, they use your mac address, dead give away that he has no clue what he's doing. And if anything does happen, get me his name on mw3, and... well... his whole internet connection is fucked.

Well first of all, your Wii doesn't have an IP address - it has a MAC address.
Second of all, you don't brick a Wii using it's MAC address. You brick it by messing up the iOS that runs the system menu.
This guy is just a fake. It is impossible for him to break your Wii over the Internet.

You dont need to. They wont do anything to u unless they have a USB Gecko(dont ask me what that is).
As for demoting its unlikely cause there are problems with dem mod menus lately.

Who said they were going to do it because they are retarded? If someone says they will brick your wii through cod then they don't even know what a brick is. You can't send stubbed ios's through messages in cod. If anybody says they will brick your wii again say "do it then". If they invite you to a private match then that means they are pussys that know they can't do near what they claim and are going to demote you. Don't join. Then tell them to brick your wii and watch them say "Wait until my friend gets online!" Then wait until they get online. Join them and keep trolling saying "So are you going to brick my wii or not? Dumbass I have other things to do."

It's impossible to connect to the internet with just a mac address. If you understand the basics of networking.
A mac address is nothing more than a burned in number on the (NIC) just like a serial number. IP's are assigned to your mac address then you are in connect to the IP table.

IP addresses are assigned as part of connecting to a network, and MAC addresses are assigned at the time hardware is manufactured. If you have a router, then your MAC address won't go any further than that.

As for Bricking, the Wii is very brick proof because of the way its cpu's allocate the data. It's not impossible but something like a message wont cut it.
