Epic Banned 1100 Cheaters During Fortnite World Cup Qualifier

Epic Banned 1100 Cheaters During Fortnite World Cup Qualifier

Cheaters are a common problem on popular games and though they’re never welcome these players are a particularly serious issue in competitive play when large rewards and glory are on the line. Epic has released a new statement on integrity in its own competitive events detailing the outcome of its anti-cheater efforts. Among other things more than 1100 players were banned during the week 1 qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Epic warns that any players found breaking the rules during competitive games will face both disqualification and penalties the severity of which will vary based on Epic’s decision and any past actions by the account. In a new report Epic revealed that it banned 1163 accounts from competitive play for the duration of two weeks as punishment for playing in multiple regions and circumventing region locks. Of those banned accounts 196 were prize winners who forfeited their prizes. As well 48 accounts were banned for two weeks over account sharing. Surprisingly only eight accounts were banned for teaming resulting in the forfeiture of one prize and one account was banned permanently from the Fortnite game over the use of cheat software during the Semi Finals. That account was able to play for less than five minutes in the tournament before it was identified and perma-banned. Finally Epic says that one account was issued a 72-hour ban from competitive play because it purposely disconnected to avoid giving points to another competitor. The company is only able to detect this childish behavior manually based on user reports at this time but warns that it will be able to ‘more widely’ detect the action in the future. Players who were given penalties should think twice before creating a new account to get around the bans — Epic says this will result in being permanently banned from all future competitive Fortnite events. In addition Epic says it is improving its teaming detection software to eventually use in all game modes. A future announcement will alert players when the tech is live in other non-competitive modes.

More Than 200 Fortnite World Cup Qualifier Cheaters Will Forfeit Their Winnings

More Than 200 Fortnite World Cup Qualifier Cheaters Will Forfeit Their Winnings

With the first week of Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers in the rear-view Epic Games has addressed the competitive integrity of Fortnite detailing exactly how many players were caught cheating their methods and their respective punishments.206 total players will forfeit their winnings for cheating though not strictly with cheating software. With $1 million doled out for each week of qualifiers some players might be out a couple thousand bucks. A total of 1163 accounts were banned for two weeks for side-stepping region locks in order to have multiple attempts at qualifying for the World Cup. 196 of these players had to give up their prize money though it's not clear how much money or whether any of those players managed to qualify. 48 players were banned for seven days for account sharing which means they handed their account to someone with a better shot at nabbing some prize money. But only nine account sharing fiends managed to secure some cash which will now be shared back to Epic. Eight accounts were banned (no length provided) for teaming the most infuriating battle royale cheat there is. Teaming is when two players manage to get into the same match and coordinate effectively working as a duo against a lobby of solo players. Epic also stated that its detection algorithm is in play during the qualifiers even though it was turned off for non-competitive modes with patch v8.40. The goal is to return the algorithm to all game modes while allowing for goofy impromptu interactions with other players that don't get improperly flagged. Only one cheater was permanently banned for using actual cheat software though their account had less than five minutes of total playtime before the ban. It's a clearly failed experiment though I'm a bit surprised only one person was curious enough to try. Assuming this is the same guy here's a twist: the cheater was outed by the creator of the cheating software. It's the incident that prompted Epic to put out an integrity blog in the first place. The final cheater is out for 72 hours for disconnecting during a live match to avoid giving points to another player. Eliminations count towards qualifier point totals and dipping out before someone can finish you when you're cornered is a cruel tactic. The worrisome bit here: "This is currently a manual process based off of user reports but we will be detecting this more widely in the future." The World Cup Qualifiers are held remotely so relying on user reports to plug holes in the leaderboards isn't enough for me. A few points can make the difference between qualifying or not. I expect the community to be particularly diligent here it just shouldn't land on players to make sure every point has been accounted for. Week two of the Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers start this weekend so it's nice to hear Epic isn't shying away from such a tricky persistent problem. There's a $100 million prize pool at stake after all (though $3 million of that is going to a new Fortnite Creative Mode competition). Catching cheaters won't make ballers fun or the competitive endgame exciting but it's certainly reassuring to know that everyone is just about on the same equally frustrating ground.
