Your Live progress has not been affected by what happens on the PTB.
So I just read about Call of Dutys new anticheat and DBD could totally do it
In case your not aware its called the ricochet system i think and its a system that detects if your using a cheat and then makes it impossible to kill anyone or do any objectives. They are not banning players just keeping the flag on your account and it seems like a good idea to think about for dbd. We have all seen the rampant amount of cheater posts and maybe so behavior ddesnt have a team soo dedicated to blocking cheaters they could implement a system like so if you cheat you can no longer ruin others games maybe it will just turn off all bp gains and you can no longer interact with any objects in the map. I just personally think that out right banning players while smart just doesnt end up fixing anything guys go check it out on youtube and maybe come up with a better idea for dbd because you guys have got to be exhausted from trying to contain it. Heres the link to what they are doing in CoD https://www.pcgamer.com/call-of-duty-warzone-is-nerfing-cheaters-guns-so-they-cant-kill-anybody/
