    Encouraging Fairplay

    We’re stepping up our commitment to Fair Play!

    The goal? Provide a level playing field for everyone.

    As part of our Fair Play policy, players using prohibited 3rd party software will face disciplinary action, including but not limited to: permanent ban.

    We consider “bot” and “mod” use cheating, and strongly encourage players to remove any aforementioned programs from their devices.

    By offering this warning, we hope to give all players a chance to enjoy our games the Fair way.

    IMPORTANT: this is not a “one time thing”, but an ongoing initiative designed to safeguard all games going forward.

    Fair Play Q&A

    Why did you initiate a mass ban?
    - To keep our games safe and fair for everybody.

    Why now? Hasn’t this been going on for a while?
    - We’ve always taken action against players utilizing 3rd party software. Advances in tools have given us the chance to be more proactive than ever. We intend to do more in the future.

    What if I used Mods in the past, but not anymore? Will I be banned?
    - Nope. Only accounts currently using 3rd party software will be affected.

    Will everyone be banned at the same time?
    - Not really. The Ban will roll out in stages.

    How do you detect modified accounts?
    - Psychic octopus.

    What if someone’s banned accidentally?
    - Our systems are robust, false positives may still be possible. We will swiftly reverse any mistakes made.

    Will players with Jailbroken, or rooted devices be banned?
    - Nope!

    When will you be banning people?
    - Bans will be ongoing, beginning in the coming weeks.

    I stopped using 3rd party software a while ago, but I was still banned?
    - Only accounts that indicate recent ‘mod’ or ‘bot’ activity are banned. As mentioned in our Fair Play message – any previous abuse before our Fair Play message released would not result in disciplinary action.

    How are you detecting 3rd party software? Is my privacy at risk?
    - Privacy is a top priority for us and we only collect information in compliance with applicable data collection and privacy laws. Please review our Privacy Policy for more information.

    Can Supercell see what’s on my device?
    - No. We can only see if our games are being changed.

    I used a mod only for other games, but still got banned?
    - You will not face consequences if you have not used any 3rd party apps to “change the gameplay.” Only you know for sure if your MOD does this or not.

    Good stuff, a lot of players are going to be happy with this.

    Are we expected to report players using the in game feature or just leave it for you guys to find them eventually? I've reported someone in the past and nothing was done is all.
