In MIR4, the player camps one of the five classes (warrior, magician, Taoist, lancer, crossbowman) and evolves in a 3D world by fighting and collecting resources, starting with the Darksteel. This resource is essential in the sense that it is this which is exchanged against the Dracos, in other words the cryptocurrency. Theoretically, and even if the hourly gain is quite low, players can then convert this cryptocurrency for real money.
With 72,244 players on average (with spades over 97,000), MIR4 can claim to be a success. But like any success, it attracts lust – especially when the payoff can be real – and it wasn’t long before cheaters appeared in this game’s digital lands. In response, the publisher just knocked strong by banning the trifle of … 7 million players! Yes, you read that correctly, the game is the subject of a ban of more than 7 million accounts and if this figure caught the attention of a Danish media, it is because it overpowers the population. from Denmark (5,840,045 at the latest estimates)! Therefore, based on the 2023 figures of the world census, we had fun comparing this number to the populations of other countries. MIR4 has banned more players than the total population of Turkmenistan, Croatia, Costa Rica or Bulgaria!
It is not known if these bans will allow the eradication of bots (automated programs that help cheaters grab resources more easily), but we have to admit that it is rather funny. We can clearly speak of a “competitive ban”!
