Palworld, the monster-collecting and battling RPG, has been plagued by server connection issues and fraudulent activities recently. This has, unfortunately, impacted legitimate players’ ability to enjoy the game. In response, the development team has taken to Twitter to address these concerns and outline upcoming measures to tackle cheating.

The core of the problem appears to be cheating and fraudulent activities within the official servers, hindering some users from even connecting. The Palworld developers have condemned these practices in official tweets and promised to have a good solution. It was more of a broad plan, but there were some specifics they gave out.

The first step, arriving in a late February update, will be introducing a server player list function. This will empower the development team to effectively identify and suspend cheating players. This function, however, is designed to be optional for community servers, single-player, and co-op modes, offering flexibility based on the desired gameplay experience.

Beyond the player list, Palworld plans to incorporate an external anti-cheat solution to target severe cheating instances specifically. Although details about this solution aren’t disclosed, it sounds like it will be pretty effective. Although, it’s hard to believe that anyone can stop cheaters when you’ve played Apex Legends, CS:GO, or Call of Duty.

The development team acknowledged how difficult it is to keep up with cheaters’ evolving tactics. They have apologized for any inconvenience caused and reassured players that they are coming up with effective solutions. Although these anti-cheat measures are encouraging, their effectiveness and timeline for full implementation remain to be seen. We would say to keep reporting suspicious activity to the developers but not expect a solution immediately.
