Bot Banning: Intermediate results
We have just finished our most recent ban wave and we would like to share the results of our painstaking work. It is our 10th Battle against third-party software usage and we have noticed a huge improvement in this war. The war began on 21st of February 2017 and here are some of the results so far:
Overall 4,794 players were banned on all servers across all 10 waves of bans.
We executed 7,011 individual bans: 4,783 bans for 12 hours, 1,553 bans for 24 hours, 551 bans for 72 hours and 124 permanent bans.
6 out of 7 players stopped using additional programs right after their first ban. This means that around 85% of players who were initially detected by our system were not detected to be using bots in the next wave, although some of them were detected again in later iterations.
2 out of 3 players completely stopped using third-party programs after the first detection.
Our Bot Detection System discovered around 3 million inappropriate actions across all players.
This statement does not mean we will stop our detection program and it’s just the beginning of our efforts. We will keep a close look on the bot players and fight hard against third-party programs. There will be more ban waves in the future!
Your Empire Family.
