The anti-cheat update “efforts” blizzard has mentioned was just large scale of encryption on both warden and the actual game and it was a good effort but it was dismantled in a matter of weeks/days, the problem is that the anti-cheat is currently running in the best possible user-mode anti-cheat there is, but every other modern cheat has moved on to kernel land which is ring0 which accordingly has more power than the game and the anti-cheat in terms of permissions it can overwrite the entire anti-cheat basically if you want to read more about the issue here you go we wrote up a document in very in-depth detail of the situation https:// docs.google .com/document/d/1PO2_uE-UyqBsOqNUzkKwVMeT2-75c7dvOrd5R63WFzM/edit?usp=sharing
There are currently around 8 cheat providers, we have found 223 cheaters in the month of February alone, We have also found from March the 1st to 8th found already 47 active cheaters on the ladder not to mention that there are players currently right now streaming we collected all this Data from my server where we have 2500+ users of GM+ to OWL players, we also have a website where people from all ranks can report https:// ow.stats5 .com/cheaters
Anyways these people While cheating for fun over and over and over again, the players do get banned but they take 1-3 days to be banned until they buy another 10-15$ account and start causing the same damage they did last time, the HWID bans or IP bans are not enough, blizzard needs to start doing more HWID bans, or make their HWID better than at least to a degree that it takes a long process of “EFFORT” to start playing again right now all it takes is literally 2 min to change accounts and do the same u did before
We have been attacking every single provider we collect a lot of data and try to DMCA them ourselves or send it to blizzard and they do get shut down but it is just not enough or fast enough. we do what we can with OWPD and won’t stop with it we have some projects that we are working on currently, but at the end of the day Blizzard has the real power to nuke these cheaters to oblivion but they aren’t whatever the reason is, its not a good excuse/reason to let your game be like this.

Blizzard, all I am asking here is that you put a little bit more effort into the process into cheating because anybody can do it it’s just like removing a cap from a water bottle easy to cheat in your game. I am not flaming, I can show it in front of you and prove my point on how ridiculously easy it is.
