Boom Beach Cheaters and Hackers Banned by Supercell as Part of Fair Play Commitment

Supercell has announced on Facebook that accounts found using 3rd party software have been banned for 2 weeks. Should the affected accounts continue to use 3rd party software to gain an advantage in the game after the 2 weeks are up, the accounts will be banned permanently. Bans are non-negotiable, so no amount of pleading will get Supercell to change their minds if your account does get banned.

Boom Beach

This news comes hot on the heels of Supercell’s recent announcement that they are committed to fair play for their games, and will not tolerate cheating or hacking of any kind. According to Supercell, bots and mods are considered cheats and will make associated accounts liable for banning. According to their official FAQ however, jailbroken or rooted devices alone will not be banned, neither will users of emulators like Bluestacks. Of course, if you are using cheats, hacks, mods, bots or any other kind of unfair advantage on those devices, that’s a different story.

While the first wave of bans have been announced for Boom Beach, we expect to see similar mass bans for Supercell’s other games, such as Clash Royale and Clash of Clans. What do you think of Supercell’s mass banning of accounts using cheats and hacks? Let us know in the comments below.

    I think this is awesome. A lot of people have been aware of the cheating issue for a long time. And we have been pressuring Supercell to do something about this for a long time.

    Personally, I was in the US top 100 in Boom Beach at one point, and I was stalling out on a lot of hard bases, and I KNEW that if I used Xmod, I could pretty easily get to the US top 50. For operation attacks, my TF plays Dead End daily, and we have cleared Deep Cut before. There are a LOT of attacks where if I’d practiced beforehand using Xmod, I could have done a lot better. For the record, I have never used Xmod – I decided to play honestly. Yes, it was hard work, but it was rewarding.

    So, I very much welcome this. This is really going to clean up the game. They should have acted on this earlier, but they are claiming that recent technological or software developments allowed them to detect these mods, and I will (provisionally!) take them at their word.
