Clash Of Clans Update: Supercell Threatens Cheats With Two-Week Bans

Supercell has imposed a two-week ban on cheaters. Hacking and cheating after the ban period can earn a temporary suspension of accounts.

Use of mods and hacks to stay online was among the first cheats used but in recent, cheating has expanded to use of third-party software to simulate war strategies. Some players are reportedly uploading town hall designs to undermine to software which can reveal the best ways to attack and undermine. Updates to Clash of Clans have been tackled bots in the past but the recent communication is Supercell's first to tackle the problem head-on.

"We're stepping up our commitment to Fair Play! The goal? Provide a level playing field for everyone. As part of our Fair Play policy, players using prohibited 3rd party software will face disciplinary action, including but not limited to: permanent ban. We consider "bot" and "mod" use cheating, and strongly encourage players to remove any aforementioned programs from their devices," Supercell said.

"Accounts found using 3rd party software have been banned for 2-weeks. When those 2-weeks are up, any accounts continuing to utilize 3rd party software will be permanently banned. Bans are non-negotiable. Please uninstall any related 3rd Party Software now to avoid account suspension,"

Recent reports described hacks including those where low-level players were engaging players in higher-level with wars and ended the war just before the elapse of time. The information gleaned was then being fed into software to undermine clans.

In other Clash of Clans related news, CoC and Clash Royale were top grossing mobile games in March. Royale alone, launched January this year, grossed around $ 133 million in revenue while CoC earned $ 118 million.
