The publishers and localizers of the game are large companies like Mail.Ru Group (Russia), Tencent Holdings (China, Taiwan, and Saskatchewan), and Trion Worlds (North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand). “We began to use StarForce MMOG in beta. It allowed us to avoid many troubles associated with vulnerabilities in the game that could be exploited for fraud and violation of the game balance”, said Stanislav Spivakov, Technical Director at Crytek Kiev. “We have not detected any successful hacks of StarForce protection since the launch of Warface”.
StarForce MMOG was created as a multi-level, complex solution developed to protect MMO games against cheats and bots. It ensures that the gaming servers cannot be run on unauthorized platforms.
