Why does papaya play keep allowing fake accounts access to Warrock in 2023?
The sign-up process is making this game awful now. Cannot comment on CQC but check almost every battle-group game there is a fake account created within the last week in almost each room. Plus all these other accounts were created with nothing more than the intent to cause problems. The same "long-term people" keep abusing these bots to start games, spy, and just cause community issues. Every single person who has played battle group within the last 4 weeks will have suffered at some point with a fake unresponsive account on there team.
With one vote kick a day, Personally, I am a little fed up with it. The vote kick gets abused if increased so raising this is not an option.
For the spy accounts, level limits don't work, they never have in this game. The overall player base of Warrock will just not use a level-limited room, so let's forget that option too. Warrock is not attracting new players and all these fake accounts are helping to push players away.
Behind a lot of these fake accounts will be long-term players, people who should be more than experienced by now, and not require any type of assistance from other players, the game, or fake accounts. These fake accounts are being recycled on a daily basis and do nothing but bring negativity towards Warrock.

Papaya Play needs to end hosting this game by offering a free download/account. You are allowing Warrock to be trashed. Within 60s I can create a new account and be in the game. This problem never ends and no one respects their accounts due to how easy they are to obtain. This game has a core player base so why not look after them?
Make Steam the only option for obtaining an account/download. Then require only verified 12-month or older accounts with no vac bans the option to install the game / create an account in the future. Everyone has a Steam account in 2023 so no excuse there. Plus no current player would be required to do anything. It only affects new accounts. You need to end hosting this game.
The bot problem will be solved with a little time as these fake accounts get removed and cannot be replaced as getting a verified 12+ no van banned steam account is not going to be easy. Players can keep remaking fake accounts freely via Papaya Play.
Any players banned in the future by Papyay, eac would then need to access the game via Steam.
Then it's linked, eac, steam, and account id
This is not 100%, but it limits a lot more people than open to everyone!
Or open 2nd server and allow real verified access. Facebook is easy to connect with and has its security tight enough that fake accounts won't be a problem. Everyone gets one chance then.
Shut the doors. Keep them out for good.
