    That's the problem, they can ban an account, but players can return on other accounts.

    We can predict the immediate consequences of this exploit on the market fortunately.
    People will be refusing to spend large amount of credit to buy expansive items. etc etc

    With the anti-VPN policies,
    I'm not so sure. Banned players are double banned. Banned from the game and banned from recreating an account, and they can always try making a new one using a VPN.
    They will just aggravate their cases. Or am I missing something?

    Yes Account is banned, and Ip is flagged as banned player or also banned. But they can create a new account and get a new IP.

    How do they get a new IP without a VPN or moving home?
    They ask their internet provider for a new IP? Is it possible?

    My provider only gives static IP option to its business internet accounts. So my IP is dynamic... I just have to turn of my modem off for a couple of hours to get a new IP from my provider. I can also call my provider to get a new IP in case of any problems.

    Our detection tools get better day by day and we have more data with EoS than we have ever had in the past.

    If someone does come back and they magically start picking up items we've tagged... insta ban.. etc.

    I won't go into details but it's not as easy as everyone thinks, and I would suggest you not test it and get yourself banned.

    Also, some of them were named to help the community self-police, if these people come back, report them!

    In 1.0 you guys should ask for real life ID or something before a game account becomes activated. It would be much harder that way for banned players to return that way. If you got the real life name of a player and the country/state/city where they live from that ID and the rest of info blacked out. It should be enough to identify and make security harder.

    LOL DNA is the only way and even that's wrong more often than you want.

    We're not a government agency, no way to validate fake credentials and it just makes it hard on the good people who just want to play.

    I am continually blown away by ya'lls dedication to this project. Doing it out of love, and not losing steam when other dysfunctional humans take advantage of your hard work.

    You all rock, and I'm sad things like this are necessary, but also encouraged by the volunteer work put in to keep things afloat :-)

    lmfao yeah, ID requirements is a bit much.


    I agree 100% with what was done and said, the idea of community policing is a great one IMO, i mean these guys if banned thru 1.0 would have to change discord names and handles, change char names, pretty much make a whole new online alias.
    I personally don't think they should be allowed back. If they were duping items on a "ded game test server" imagine what they'd be up to on a permanent 1.0 server.

    Exploiters / cheaters will almost always be that, its in their system. (Some ppl can change but not usually, especially when their actions have 0 repercussions in their own personal life).

    Some tech companies ask to show ID for your account... Facebook does it when they think your using a fake account these days...
