Hackers and How You Can Help
We've recently witnessed an increased amount of discussion around users who are believed to be hacking or using illegitimate means to compete in Online Battles. As a result, we realized that we've done an unsatisfactory job in educating you all on how we act on player suspicions. As a result, we've created this brief guide to give a bit of info on our banning processes, and to also give some better guidance on how you can all help us even the playing field for everyone.
Some Info on Suspension
There are a few systems in place to avoid having illegitimate players be rewarded in Online Battles. Firstly is the autobanning system, which is designed to ban users whose accounts have been detected by the system as being modified or altered in an illegitimate way. As the name implies, this system is automatic, which means that there is no one actively banning these users.
Another way that we even the field is by manually going in near the end of a season and banning those users who have been discovered as using hacks or other illegitimate means to climb the leaderboard. This process is for those users who practice a method that circumvents our autobanning system. If it's possible, we thereafter try to include a way for our autobanning system to also detect these users as well, but it's not always as easy as that. There are some players who continue to try and circumvent our system, developing new ways to have an advantage over other players using illegitimate means. As a result, we sometimes miss a few. That's where you come in.
How You Can Help
We understand the frustration in encountering a player who may be leveraging hacks or other unscrupulous means to gain an unfair advantage. That said, the least successful (and potentially harmful) option is to publish your suspicions regarding another user's legitimacy on these forums. It makes it more difficult for the information to get to our team, and also creates potentially undue suspicion and hostility toward players who may very well be legitimate. Our team here has tools available that allow us to dive into an account and check for sure whether or not a user's account has been modified using illegitimate means.
If you suspect that a player is using hacks or exploits to climb the leaderboards or happens to use unreleased challenge characters in multiplayer, then your best option is always to reach out to our Support Center, and let them know that you suspect a player of cheating. We'll investigate the case, and if it's decided that the user has been using illegitimate means, then we will move forward with appropriate action. Please keep in mind that any action we take with an account is completely confidential, which means that we're unable to share the results of our investigation, including whatever action we may decide to take.
To contact Support, whether to report hackers or to report any other issues, please visit the link below and provide whatever information you feel is applicable. We'll make sure a take a look.
