We all thought that the banning and modding will become a never-ending hide and seek game, but XMod, the biggest and most popular provider for modding tools, got a bad start.
Shortly after Supercell initiated their first ban wave, they stated that it will be safe to still use XMod, but it wasn’t and brought many bans to a lot of Clash of Clans Account owners.
Taking Actions for Clash of Clans Account
Now the next part of this story started when their Facebook Page went offline yesterday and is still not available. Also, their server had been down for quite some time so it looks like Supercell’s pressure is also giving them a hard time.
I assume the Facebook Page shutdown is related to legal activities that Supercell initiated against them.
What are the next Actions and steps? Burner Accounts
It’s probably too early to cheer – the cheating and modding solution is by far not completed, even when average Clasher doesn’t cheat anymore. More and more professional War Clans (no finger pointing or accusing in general – just some of them that could not win without modding), started using Burner Account to still mod.
Wait? Yes, burner accounts like in burner cell phones. The idea behind this is creating a fresh account and let it participate in war – even with a TH3 account you can practice TH11 attacks with modding tools. When this account now gets banned, there is only little damage done to them because they can create new ones and their main account is still in good standing.
I’m sure this is one of the next things that Supercell will address – shouldn’t be too complicated to connect different account with location, time and networking information.
Cheating with your Clash of Clans Troops
What is my advice for me on cheating? don’t cheat anymore. You can win in the game with your skills using your Clash of Clans Troops without cheating and, surprise, it also makes more fun. The ice will always get thinner and thinner and even if those with banned accounts will hate me know I really appreciate Supercell’s zero-tolerance politic on this. 14 days ban, permanent ban – that’s it. I think that helped to make cheaters stop this as fast.
