Supercell released more information on the modding ban, how detection works and how the ban will be implemented.
Supercell confirmed that bans will be rolled out in stages using Psychic Octopus to detect the modders. Supercell are confident that Psychic Octopus is robust and Supercell would quickly reverse any false positives.
Many will be pleased that rooted/jailbroken devices or emulators are also safe from our eight arm friend.
Supercell remained sensibly coy in providing limited information on how Octopus captured its prey. However, they were eager to state that privacy was a top priority and that any data collected was in compliance of data collection and privacy laws.
