Tower of Fantasy devs publicly name and shame over 1000 hacker accounts

It hasn’t been long since anime MMO/RPG Tower of Fantasy launched globally and its dev has run into hacker problems – so much so they’ve publicly named and shamed the culprits.

The game has banned 1706 accounts involved with using cheating software and/or scripts, with the largest population of cheaters hailing from Southest Asia at 470 accounts.

Following the predictable leader of cheaters and hackers, the top-list goes to Europe (442 accounts), North America (343 accounts), Asia-Pacific (295 accounts), and then South America (156 accounts).

“To provide a fair gaming environment and assure an excellent in-game experience for all the Wanderers in Tower of Fantasy, Hykros Central Control Room monitors accounts using cheating software and the violation of using scripts for initializing account data,” Hotta Studio said in a new update.

The wild thing is the blog post actually lists every single individual cheater/hacker, but not with their full usernames. I’m going to venture to guess the user “H***erSkiy” was probably the infamous “HackerSkiy”.

The Genshin Impact-like shared MMO / RPG shares a lot of similarities, but also has some things unique to it – read more in our recent preview we posted for the game.

Tower of Fantasy is now available for Windows PC (via its official website and soon on Steam, and the Epic Games Store), iOS (via the App Store), and Android (via Google Play).
