Thats why you need to switch to offline mode...
I do go offline, when I am cheating. Yet when I want to play with friends legitimately I have to go online for that. 😉
I even have two characters for both situations.
I was just giving a warning because if you are in offline, you don't get the messages like these. When you do go online it shows them.
So I thought it would be nice to inform the people that may want to play online one day and not have their game soft-banned when they do go online.
This is all well and good, but why are only some people getting the warning?
What do you mean by softban wave should be hitting on 18th? I suppose 18th is just an update. Also, I thought softban is ongoing all the time? I thought every time you open the game in the menu, it checks your save file and auto softban if illegal action is found? I'm not sure, correct me if i'm wrong.
