Valiance and Mobile E-sports, tournament organisers for mobile games, announced measures to streamline their anti-cheating measures and punishments for events for mobile FPS title Critical Ops.
Most notably, they are working on a database for fellow tournament organisers to help keep track of known hackers using third-party apps to cheat. Other organisations are likely to follow with their own announcements.
The organisers described the punishments in their posts: a six-month ban will be issued to the player(s) using tools to cheat. Two month bans will be given to fellow players on the team. In addition, instead of following their usual protocol of announcing hack-related bans on their blog, they plan on informing such players directly and quietly.
Decisions will be reviewed in conjunction with C-OPS developer Critical Force.
