Ban Hammer Swings at Those Using Hystria Hacks & Other Cheats

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jun 06, 2018  | Comments

Ban Hammer Swings at Those Using Hystria Hacks & Other Cheats - Black Desert Online - MMORPG.com

Earlier today, we reported on the rising discontent in the Black Desert Online community with regard to the Hystria hack and other programs allowing some players to gain advantage over others. In a new post on the BDO forum, Kakao developers have written that "we've been working to identify those malicious players to execute a thorough ban wave". Over 700 accounts have been banned permanently.

Here is the post in its entirety:

Cheaters bring a lot of frustration to us true gamers, and we want to be able to play and compete fairly together. Knowing that others were getting ahead by cheating leaves a sour taste in all of our mouths. We’ve been acutely aware of the views and anger that many of you have shared across multiple platforms over the last few weeks, and we’ve been working to identify those malicious players to execute a thorough ban wave.

We understand and share your desire to see swift action on this topic, so please know that we are continually looking at ways to improve our processes of gathering data and be aware that the amount of work that goes into ensuring we have perfect ban waves is extensive and takes time. Please also remember that ban waves are indeed waves, and while we can be sure we haven’t caught everyone yet, we’ll keep working on this and more will follow.

Now, onto the part, you’ve been waiting for!

Accounts found to be using software to increase movement or attack speed: 356
Accounts found to be using software to automate an in-game process: 382
Total accounts found to be using unauthorized software: 738

All of these accounts have now been banned from accessing Black Desert Online.

Thank you to all those who raised awareness for this issue and remained patient as we investigated and compiled the data.

I’ll see you all for the next ban wave.
