This has been a long time coming for Supercell and for the Clash community. Since its inception, Clash has been plague by an enormous amount of players using bots and mods to cheat their way to the higher ranks. This has been well documented by clans of all sizes and skill levels and I think this is one of the largest steps forward Supercell has taken in terms of cracking down on cheaters.
In their most recent update, they’ve hindered the uses of mods but this is the first time Supercell has outright spoken about cheaters with words like mods and bots, which normally they deter YouTubers from even talking about it.
Here is the official announcement and video discussion from Galadon below!
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
