The developers said that they first encountered the cheat in the middle of 2020, after numerous complaints. Since then, the devs have been hard at work, taking various actions to tackle the problem and reinforce their anti-hack system.

After six months, the developers finally came up with a detection method for the flying hack. They also notice that the hack can no longer function after the launch of the new client patch. By implementing this new strategy, the number of flying hacks dropped significantly.
