Tree of Savior swings the banhammer following its Korean launch

    
16

Botters and exploiters, beware: Tree of Savior isn’t having any of that. The newly launched Korean title has banned over 1,000 accounts in its first week for taking advantage of the game.

IMC Games swung the mighty banhammer to smack down accounts that were botting, exploiting, or using illegal programs. This follows a somewhat rocky release in which players have expressed disappointment over the game’s cash shop practices and buggy state.

Of course, you wouldn’t get into trouble for doing these things, would you? Of course not, and because you’re a lovely human being, we’ve got a new Tree of Savior video by Steparu demonstrating some of the game’s animated emotes below.

Sadly there are probably 5 readers on this site that are old enough to know what you’re talking about…

Was this supposed to be impressive news? The game must be unbearably grindy if so many people resorted to botting.

To which the 1,000 banned players went out and made 2,000 new accounts.

The problem is though this games makes it way too easy to bot
So for all 1000 of them banned 500 more will just pop back up…….

Somebody should make a video game parody version of Peter Gabriel’s song, “Sledgehammer”
