As you may have noticed our player count has risen considerably in recent times and, unfortunately, there has been substantial increase in those using hacks too. We want to continue to improve the time you have on Skycade and appreciate that it can be difficult to enjoy a factions experience that is occasionally tarnished with hackers. Due to this (and the fact there have been a few suggestions both in-game and on the forums), I had a discussion with senior staff members about extending punishment lengths. We have since reconsidered and the new sanctions are as follows: Please note the current rule for ban evasion will remain – ban time is doubled for every evasion. Revised ban lengths will come into effect immediately. Any ongoing punishments or any expired bans will not be extended, though please make a note that the new sanction times will be implemented for your next ban; Eg. You have been banned once before for 7 days for using malicious hacks. You decide to use malicious hacks again. This is your second offence and due to the more severe punishments, you will now be perm banned. This is not a decision that has been made lightly but we hope that lengthening the bans of offenders will discourage others from using hacked clients too.
