A little "reassurance" about hackers from Kewk
http://forums.playwarz.com/showthread.php?97597-Hacking-update

We've banned ~3.5% of the total monthly player base for using hacks on our servers, and ruining the gaming experience for those that play fair. Out of the players that have been banned ~25% have submitted ban appeal tickets and/or forum posts. Hacker AppealsUnfortunate as it is, we have confirmed that the hack sites have been asking their banned users to submit tickets and forum posts, claiming innocent. However, the influx of claims has really helped reassure the validity of our anti-hack methods, as we have been constantly double and triple checking multiple accounts. We all have seen tons of players claiming false bans and we have investigated (to date) ~60% of the claims. At the time of this posting we have less than .001% of those players that have been falsely banned. These players have all had their accounts unbanned and are enjoying the game once again.

So he says that .001% of ban were false. So since Vivian was falsely banned, that means that there were at least 100000 players banned.
He also says that 3.5% of monthly players were banned.
So that means this game has over 2,8000,000 players? wtf?
And thats Only if there was ONE FALSE BAN.
Looking on the forums, ive seen at least 20 people get unbanned.
20*2.8 = 56,000,000
So is it true this game has sold more copies than any other game in history?

21.5% of statistical analysis is incorrect.

There is no way in hell they sold 56 million copies. I mean if that was the case it would be all over the news.

You guys are funny. Also, OP needs to learn how to read. It's .001% of the 3.5% that was banned. TY, carry on.......

I need to learn to read?

weve banned ~3.5% of the monthly player base

i think you need to learn math.
.001% falsely banned
1 player falsely banned
if ONE PLAYER is .001% of the hackers,
.001% of 100000 is 1
so they banned at leas ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND players.
if 100000 players is obly 3.5% of the monthly players,
(100/3.5)*100000=2,800,000
2.8 million monthly players- assuming ONLY ONE ban repeal was granted.
If you look on the forums, theres DOZENS of people who have successfully repealed bans and gotten back i to the game. so... follow me on this one. lets just say it was only 2 dozen.
24*100000*(100/3.5)=67.2 MILLION monthly players.
You mean to tell me that WarZ has more monthly players- than Skyrim has sold copies total?

Hammerpoint can't math

What I want to know is why isn't this software/technique been hailed as a revolution in the computer gaming/software industry and been adopted by every major games company in the industry? I mean if like 99.9% of all active bans are accurate then that means that they must have a revolutionary new architecture and that companies the likes of Microsoft and Sony are all doing it wrong.

Wallhack is defo the biggest hack problem in this game, though I dont run into hackers too often when I play on 10-20 player servers guessing the hackers wanna play the high pop servers for more action and more loot.
