What is the history behind WPN Tools Lite?
Tightening of the rules of using third-party software and even introducing bans (PokerStars banned automated seating scripts and partypoker restricted HUDs) is no surprise.
Winning Poker Network took the same path almost two years ago with WPN Tools. Later, the developer reached an agreement with WPN management and launched WPN Tools Lite after removing some automated features.
Since then, the tool has been updated 138 times. Unfortunately, the software developer shared that the end of life of his product will come in 2020.
WPN Tools Lite and Winning Poker Network changes
The software developer posted on a Russian forum (Gipsy):
"Due to the latest restrictions, the software can only get worse, furthermore, it will most likely be banned the new year. Therefore, I will not add any new features. All changes will be made to ensure regular operation in current version of the client. For those using the program for over a year, I can provide a version that will work after the ban of the current one."
What restrictions is the developer talking about?
Mainly, the developer is referring to the change in the format of image files, which caused that customized layouts stopped working. Also, the software will most likely be affected by the change in fonts.
WPN introduces all of these measures as a way to deal with bots, but, in the end, it also affects other tools fair players use.
It's important to note that we are only talking about software like WPN Tools Lite. There is no threat to HUDs and trackers, and the CEO of WPN confirmed that they have no intentions to ban those tools.
A new version of WPN Tools Lite will be launched in 2021, but it's still unknown what features it will have to remove to meet the new network requirements.
