    *Dusts self off*

    Several months ago I made a promise for faster and more effective action on the use of exploits and 3rd party programs. Unfortunately, circumstances led to me being unable to keep that promise to you, for that, I apologise to all but 301 of you.

    Today we have permanently banned a total of 301 accounts from the Black Desert Online service for the use of 3rd party software. They are broken down as follows:

    Speedhacks: 85
    Fishbots: 216

    As with all of our ban waves, we’ve taken time to ensure the accuracy, so we won’t be accepting appeals.

    Due to various complications, I intend to revise the methodology of performing banwaves in order to execute much smaller, but also much more frequent waves. I will try to keep you updated with news and action in the coming weeks.

    Thank you for your patience as we’ve been working on this.

    A rare day indeed. A Tamer buff (meh but something other than a graphical fix was nice) and a ban wave on the same day!

    Snark aside... im glad this was finally done. Please keep it up... the hacking has been a huge problem.

    thx for taking those players down.

    could you give me an indication, if and when you will focus on mp bots?

    I've been asking for weeks for someone from Black Desert Online to give an opinion about RemotR, which is technically a 3rd party software. Can you please help us on this topic ?

    I guess a name-and-shame is too much to ask, right?

    Btw there is an immense problem with Sea monster hunting, there are many guilds cheating with smurf accounts on SMH. They just put their main account/character into the guild get a second account and go SMH with hacks. So they earn 5bil+ payouts a week easy. Plz take care about SMH its even broken without hacks.

    Little question ( to not get ban) I have a new keyboard with macro button at launch it was allowed to use such macro for convenience in life skills it still so ? cause I remember reading a change a some point but can't find it any more ( and training drift by mashing it with instant accel started being painful after the 300th drift)
