Countermeasures against forbidden modifications.
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

Since January, an additional 568 (listed on forum) users have been permanently banned for using third-party modifications in violation of the user agreement - use of prohibited modifications. (EULA).

Our recent introduction of the system of reports based on replays has allowed you to not only report suspicious activity but also your participation has significantly improved the modification detection algorithm. This algorithm is based on a machine learning system which allows us to detect almost all players who use forbidden modifications (even if they had not yet been reported).

The specific patterns that we use are based on the difference in behaviour between normal players (using real visibility from the client) and a player who also has server-side information on his monitor (this information contains more data). We have implemented this algorithm in a very conservative way in order to avoid false positives. Suspicious activity is also checked by our employees after it has been  detected by the program. 

We will continue to improve our algorithm to make sure that your gaming experience remains the best possible.
