We are currently seeing a lot of misinformation regarding our VM-related countermeasures in several games. We understand that some players might want to play the game in a VM, e.g. if they are using Linux, but we hope for your understanding that we can't support such (1/3)

untrusted environments going forward as they present an unsolvable security risk, proven by the fact that e.g. in EFT over 90% of recently active VM users were found to be abusing their VMs to cheat, forcing us to take this step inevitably. (2/3)

We want to emphasize that we do not ban anyone for simply running the game in a VM, but as always we will ban any users who actively try to bypass our measures. Normal users will only receive a kick (like @OrdinaryGamers). (3/3)

There are several public Intel ME / AMD PSP exploits. They're both undetectable by any means. Will you plan to ban the users of such CPUs, being the untrusted environments they are? Or is this a knee-jerk reaction that you decided to implement so you can pretend doing something?

You're using a ham-fisted means of solving the problem. Your software is extremely unfriendly to security/privacy-focused users, and it sets a terrible precedent that I view as unethical. The only one spreading misinformation is the Battleye brand.

I would be very careful using "security risk" as an argument against VMs. You are the one loading kernel modules with downloaded provisioning into computers that are not yours.

I was banned from this game. Nothing violates the terms. Is there a way to get the ban released?
