Cafe World to Disable Accounts Using Bots and Illegal Programs, is FarmVille Next?

FarmVille Cafe World Unfair Play

While browsing the Cafe World Forum, FarmVille Freak moderator Dark Farmer stumbled upon some interesting news. Another Zynga game, Cafe World, announced via their official forum that they have detected users using illegal programs to enhance game play and are planning to disable accounts using such programs. These programs include: modifiers, bots, cheats, and hacks which violate Zynga’s Terms of Service and are affecting the ability to connect to servers for some players.

They have developed a code to detect players using these illegal programs and will disable their accounts. Once your account has been disabled, you will have to contact customer service to resume game play. Some accounts may be reset to “normal” and be further suspended. Their goal is to enhance game play for all users and increase the accessibility and decrease in-game errors.

What does this mean for FarmVille? Could this be a future step for FarmVille as well?

Read excerpt from Official Cafe World Forum below:

“Hiya chefs,

In an effort to clean up some issues affecting the performance of our game servers we detected several programs or sources trying to access the application to change the normal game play experience. These programs, modifiers, bots, cheats, hacks, etc. are a violation to Zynga’s Terms of Service, see Usage Rules, and have been affecting all users ability to connect to our servers.

We have implemented code to detect users enhancing their game experience by using programs of this type. Once an account has been detected it will be disabled until the end user contacts our Customer Support team. Accounts disabled may be reset to “normal” game play conditions and be noted for potential suspension if other violations occur.

Our intention is to keep our game world clean of modifiers and enhancement programs as well as optimize the performance for all of our café owners. If you experience any trouble with your Café World account and need assistance please contact our Customer Support team.

Our desire is that everyone that plays Café World have an enjoyable experience and we thank you for your continued support.

The Café World Team”  (Source: Official Cafe World Forum)
