Tekken 7 received a new one update on August 3, 2021 which carries with it even further 400 ban to players who reportedly cheated using a dedicated tool during ranked matches. Players who boosted (going against the EULA) were also banned.
This is indicated by Michael Murray, producer of Tekken 7. The developer claims that “players who, within a certain window of time, have played many matches against the same player, finishing the match in an extremely short time each time” have been banned. From now on, players who are caught cheating will be banned, he also explains.
He adds that the team doesn’t have the ability to handle individual Tekken 7 ban cases via social media, so there’s no point in complaining about it via Twitter if you’ve been banned. In the comments, however, some confusion has been generated for Murray’s statement: some have in fact feared that, with a few games in a row against the same enemy, there is a risk of being banned. The producer then explained that the ban comes only after dozens and dozens of consecutive games with the same opponent.
He finally concluded by stating that the bans are applied after the collection of multiple evidence from servers or game data and only after the situation has been analyzed by multiple people: Tekken 7 aims to improve the player experience and the ban procedures are very supervised, of course.
We also report that Tekken 7 is a success and sold 7 million copies in March, with constant growth.
