EasyAntiCheat & Bug Fixes Galore

The world-leading game security solution has arrived in Block N Load, helping make the game fair for all players. We’ve got a big batch of bug fixes too, for a smoother BnL experience than ever.

Block N Load is a fun place to build forts and blast your friends, but it also needs to be fair. Cheating is an issue that we take very seriously, and today’s update takes a huge step towards addressing it.

We’ve integrated EasyAntiCheat (EAC) into today’s Block N Load build: a proven, safe technology that’s formed part of many successful, competitive online games. It analyses both client- and server-side techniques, and smartly adds suspicious behaviour patterns to its database, preventing them from being used again.

Everyone will now be prompted to update to the latest version of Block N Load, which will install EAC. Please note that Block N Load will no longer run without EAC installed.

Bug Fixes
Here are the latest fixes to the game, also included in today’s update:
  • Aiming at the Block Buster Boost should no longer show the “do not attack” warning crosshair.
  • Block Buster Boost should no longer be layered behind the skybox.
  • Devices should now only show their health as changing when they are actively taking damage, instead of the next time you look at them after they’ve taken damage while you’re elsewhere on the map.
  • Switching between Heroes on the ‘Your Heroes’ screen in the Profile section of the menus no longer causes RAM usage to continually increase.
  • Vander Graaf’s Tesla Coils can only be charged one at a time, instead of multiple with a single shot.
  • Objective (Base and Cube) hitboxes have been improved to better match the visuals of them.
  • Vander Graaf’s Tesla Coils no longer infinitely charge themselves when placed in specific arrangements.
  • Audio for Kira-chan’s Active Ability correctly stops when the final objective is destroyed.
  • Buffs granted by Heal Stations and Ammo Crates at the maximum map height are no longer retained after leaving the area of the Blocks.
  • The Hero you last played will now correctly be saved as the default for the next match.
  • Falling Blocks should no longer cancel building.
  • An exploit--where players could use perks and blocks from a different hero via a glitch on the profile page--has been fixed.
  • A non-functional stat section of the menus has been disabled.


There’s more on the way very soon, so keep your eyes on the Block N Load news. Enjoy the game!

A New Block N Load Era!

Dear Block N Load players,

Block N Load has been free to play for two years, and that means it’s time to celebrate! We’re excited to announce that Block N Load will be receiving some much-needed development work, aiming to address some of the core issues that you have highlighted with the game.

What does this mean?
First up, we’re improving hack detection, and focusing on many of the more prominent issues that you’ve brought to our attention.

We’re making these updates our top priority. We’ll get them to you as soon as possible, but it’s important that we take the time needed to get them right. As always, keep an eye on the Block N Load site for updates on our progress.

Throughout this process, we will communicate with you as frequently as possible, and will need every bit of support and feedback that you can give us. We are in this boat together, and with your help, we will succeed.

Community driven approach
Two years ago, we promised player-led development for Block N Load. We weren’t able to fulfil that—for which we apologise. This time, though, we’re doing it right.

Here at Jagex, we’re redoubling our efforts on this new approach – driven by your feedback and suggestions. Not only do we want to hear your thought on all things Block, but we’ll be right in there with you, playing matches with you, and appearing on streams. We want to shape Block N Load into the game we know it can be, but we can only do that with your help - in game, together with us.

Let’s get started!
To kick this off we have prepared a short video, where we address questions you might have and talk about what to expect in the near future. Watch the video now!

If you can’t wait to share your ideas, please head on over to the forums!

“Block N Load [is not only] a lot of fun, but is even addictive and offers me a welcome alternative to League of Legends.”
