Nobody likes cheaters, especially in games!
Considering the recent events and complaints from players to Supercell, the Clash Royale team has again asked their players to be fair and not resort to cheats, 3rd party apps, boosting and other methods to win games. On their blog, they have recently posted a new article called “Enforcing Fair Play,” where they explain what the team does to prevent the breaking of the Fair Play policy and the rules of Terms of Service.
Here are a few of the things the team does to make sure you are not a cheater:
What Do We Do?
- Proactively prevent players from using third party software in-game
- Monitor for account sharing and fraudulent payments
- Perform regular Fair Play checks on our Leaderboards
- Check player accounts that have qualified for competitive tournaments
At the moment, Supercell will continue to ban players that share accounts and those that have used 3rd party apps to buy gems fraudulently.
But with this announcement, many players have been asking the devs at Clash Royale on Twitter what does account sharing mean, and what action gets you banned. Thankfully, everything is explained in the blog post:
Account Sharing in Supercell Games
- […] any players found to be ‘boosting’ their accounts through account sharing will be banned – sometimes even permanently.
- We cannot guarantee the security of any account that has been passed from one player to another.
- We reserve the right to ban any account that has been transferred between players.
As for the purchase of gems from other apps, it’s pretty clear to us all: buy the gems only from inside the game and not through other apps that offer gems for the Supercell games. The devs explain that these are not only fraudulent methods but also unsafe for the players.
Although some websites say that they are partners of Supercell, it is all a lie, added the Clash Royale team: “they are NOT sponsored by Supercell, and often fund (or are funded by) illegal activity.”
The penalty for buying Gems from other places than the in-game stores, the in-game currency fraudulently bought will be revoked, and the account will either be temporarily or permanently banned.
