After getting its fair share of popularity following launch, multiplayer medieval slasher Mordhau's first ban wave has swept over more than 2000 players.
While the title's cheater population was undoubtedly reduced, some innocent players were also caught by the ban wave and its ruthless banhammer. Thankfully, those bans are being revoked.
Mordhau Ban Wave
The first Mordhau ban wave targeted players making use of third party cheats since the game's release at the end of April. Developer Triternion's initial statement also said that Lutebot, a 3rd party software that lets players play songs of their choice on the in-game instrument, "and other harmless applications" were not the cause of these bans.
That might have not entirely been the case, as players took to post on both the Mordhau forum and Steam discussions saying that they were caught in the ban wave although they were only using Lutebot or no third party applications at all.
The developer went on to say that it will revoke some of the bans and that some of the cheaters might slip through the cracks, as it attempts to "err on the side of caution". Furthermore, it went on to clarify, in an updated post, that players who still consider having been banned unfairly following today's lifting of bans can reach out via e-mail or by posting on the Mordhau forum to have their situation addressed.
