    Greetings Adventurers

    We aim to provide a service that is free from exploitation and cheating. We believe all players should enjoy the game together in a fair environment. After a detailed investigation, we have found and verified a number of accounts using third party software to increase their movement speed to a level that should not be possible by normal means (commonly called speed hacks). These accounts will be permanently banned from the game and any ban appeals from those affected will be denied.

    We understand that some of you may feel that this process took longer than expected, however, we need to ensure that no false positives are caught in our ban waves, in order to be certain that no innocent players are punished. For this, our team needs to carefully review all collected data, a process that takes time. We thank you for your patience and want to enforce our commitment to taking a tough stance against exploitation.

    We aren’t done yet!

    We’re also in the process of gathering data on several other pieces of software that damage the integrity of Black Desert Online and frustrate you honest players. We understand that the community would like more transparency on the actions we are taking to stamp this out, but by revealing details too early, we can actually damage the effectiveness of our investigation.

    We also know that many of you want to see data and names of those banned, it’s our policy not to name and shame, even for those guilty of the most serious violations. We can reveal that this initial ban wave is relatively small and only for those using the most sinister exploits. We will continue our work on this front and plan a much larger wave to follow in the coming weeks.

    Thank you to everyone who helped us work towards this by making reports to the GMs through the tickets system. These reports are highly valuable to us and we hope our mutual efforts will continue to get results.

    Please keep this up!

    Kind Regards,

    BDO Team

    Well according to this post it seems that if you aren't obvious with your hacks you can get away with it as there are still quite a few people that arent banned.

    Wow movementspeed. That's... something I guess.
    Not that Fishbotters would be WAY more important. Movementspeed definitly influences the game and economy alot.

    And that the banwave is pretty small just proves the point that movementspeed really isn't a big deal. Would be used alot more if it was.

    "...any ban appeals from those affected will be denied."

    Unless you're some famous streamer.
