According to a message in Grinding Gear Games’ Path of Exile forum, the developer is about to start taking cheaters to task. Nearly 4,000 Path of Exile players found to have cheated were recently greeted with a dialog window, which tells the players that if they are caught again their accounts will be closed for good.
The message reads:
“You have been detected running cheating software.
There will be no more warnings and going forward Grinding Gears will be assessing immediate bans against accounts used by cheaters.
