Cheating and modding in Clash of Clan Wars have been ongoing issues in the past month and found their sad peek in the last weeks. More and more players think cheating and modding is ok and start doing it, especially in Clan War. So here we come with latest Clash of Clans News about First Ban Wave Incoming against Cheaters & Modders.
This is an issue that made many of us discouraged and frustrated, because it simply leaves no possibility to win and to lose 2 days until starting another war is simply a waste of our time and battery life.
I also did a post in the last weeks about that issue, in case you want to get the full picture read these two posts (in this order):
Cheater Get Banned!
Supercell didn’t give a lot of information and nobody knew what the next steps would be and when they would come. Some simply settled with the fact that there would never ever be a solution while others reported with video proof to help the support team.
Today we have the Clash of Clans News and announcement that Supercell will start their first, in history, ban wave to remove those “players” either for a limited or permanent duration. Here’s the full post:
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.
By offering this warning, we hope to give all players a chance to enjoy our games the Fair way.
IMPORTANT: this is not a “one time thing”, but an ongoing initiative designed to safeguard all games going forward.

Fair Play Q&A
Why did you initiate a mass ban?
– To keep our games safe and fair for everybody.
Why now? Hasn’t this been going on for a while?
– We’ve always taken action against players utilizing 3rd party software. Advances in tools have given us the chance to be more proactive than ever. We intend to do more in the future.
What if I used Mods in the past, but not anymore? Will I be banned?
– Nope. Only accounts currently using 3rd party software will be affected.
Will everyone be banned at the same time?
– Not really. The Ban will roll out in stages.
How do you detect modified accounts?
– Psychic octopus.
What if someone’s banned accidentally?
– Our systems are robust, false positives may still be possible. We will swiftly reverse any mistakes made.
Will players with Jailbroken, or rooted devices be banned?
What if I use Bluestacks or other emulators? Will I be banned for that?
– No, but for practical support related purposes, we encourage you not to use them.
When will you be banning people?
– Bans will be ongoing, beginning in the coming weeks.
Bravo! Finally something is happening. I’m very happy about that and so should most Clashers. Many of you have been harmed by cheaters, a recent poll confirmed:
There is only one thing to hope for – how accurate are the detecting mechanisms and will it be possible to outsmart them in the future? Every big online game has had that issue before, and it’s always a Tom and Jerry game – the cheating tool provider can always be ahead, but just the potential risk of losing an account you build for years might be enough to make people stay away from such tools.
