Tower Of Fantasy Hits 10 Million Downloads, Devs Offer Compensation For Post-Launch Issues
Hotta Studio displayed banned accounts publicly. Cheaters have been warned.
After launching globally under two weeks ago, Tower of Fantasy has reached 10 million downloads across PC, iOS, and Android platforms. Amid the milestone, Hotta Studio will send compensation for another post-launch malfunction in-game and has dropped the ban hammer on 10,000 player accounts for cheating.
Tower of Fantasy has grown steadily since launch but also has been plagued by bugs and other in-game issues. The most recent problem in ToF involves a malfunction of Nemesis' Special Order, affecting its gold and chips. The cause was the limited orders event going offline, which the devs noticed and resolved quickly.
The issue converted Flame Golds and Overclocking Chips into Black Golds and Base Chips, so the team reversed all conversions and returned gold and chips to those affected by the malfunction. Additionally, the devs are sending compensation of 500 Dark Crystals to all accounts and an extra 300 Dark Crystals to those affected by the conversion and reversal.
Hykros Central Control Room monitors accounts for use of cheating software and the use of scripts for initializing account data.
We banned 1,706 accounts for severe rule violations on 8/16.

Hotta's quick response to issues is just as consistent for banning cheaters. Alongside keeping the game up and running, they've banned over 10,000 accounts and listed the account names on their website for viewing. Talk about laying it on thick. Though, they are partially viewable.
Over 1,700 bans went out on August 17 for accounts due to "severe rule violations" across North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and Southeast Asia. On August 19, Hotta banned over 8,000 accounts, specifically in the Asia-Pacific and Southeast Asia. Now, they've surpassed 10,000 bans, which are perma bans, and Hotta stated there's more to come.
