Black Desert has banned another batch of almost 600 speedhackers and botters

Good thing Black Desert kept that banhammer from the Hystria bans handy because it needed it again this week – in fact, it looks like it’s about to become a recurring party favor, as Kakao says it’s banned another 599 cheaters: 402 of them speedhacking, 197 of them botting.

“With the partial success of the ban wave last week, we’ve been able to streamline our processes to ensure we can gather and analyse data much faster to roll out more effective and more frequent waves. We’re still a long way from 100% but we’ve been able to catch a considerable number that evaded last weeks wave and we’ll continue to go after not only people that are actively using 3rd party software but also historic cheaters.”

If you’ve managed to be an upstanding player not subject to the bans, you may be interested in this week’s update, which adds NPC dating to the game, as well as our E3 interview with Pearl Abyss, in which we discuss the plausibility of a Switch port.

What is always missing in these ban stories is … is it permanent ban (which has an effect) or temp ban (which is just hot air) ?

The most important bit about this news is that you can speedhack in Black Desert. That is something that should not work in any MMO anymore. For example if you try it in WoW the server will disconnect you immediately, and this was the case all the way back in WoW beta.

The game has all kinds of desynch issues & the hack probably is just setting your character movement values equal to that of a top tier horse.

I’m sure the forums for those 3rd party cheater sites were blowing up like crazy with pissed off people who can’t accept that they cheated, no one put a gun to their head [I hope!], etc. Some of the excuses they use are pretty funny.
