    # Video Showcase

    # Machine Learning
    Matrix has a machine learning KillAura check, it can automatically collect combat data and pre-process it, and then, based on these data, we analyze whether players are cheating or not. You can find a file which named "machine_learning.yml" in the plugin folder, it's a file which saved some pre-trained patterns, also, the plugin can automatically update that file when we release an update for it. If you want to train it, you can see the WIKI
    I used the k-NN algorithm to cluster player combat data. Under the data visualization tool, they are distinguished. The orange dot indicates the cheating player, and the blue dot indicates the legit player. Due to the dimension reduction relationship, It’s not good in data visualization, but he’s great in actual performance!

    # Compatibility:
    Matrix may not be compatible with some plugins which change vanilla mechanics like:
    • Velocity modifier
    • Speed modifier
    • Enchantment modifier

    * if you find any Incompatible plugin, you can tell me or that plugin's author, I will consider to help you

    This plugin works wonders, heaven knows how long I waited off using this plugin just because it was the new guy on the street like all the other wannabe anticheats when it first came out, but this one proved itself time and time again. It has a great developer api which I am using to integrate it into my own anticheat to automatically warn players when they reach a certain number of violations of each hack type and once they reach a certain number of warnings they are banned with an automatically generated case number which they can use in a ban appeal which us staff can use to pull up all the anticheat records this plugin has ever had for that player. This plugin is amazing despite it having the exact same rubberbanding effect on 1.7 players like when using NoCheatPlus when you try to parkour when carpet is on the blocks. I would buy this if it was a premium plugin hands down, it is a life changer. The maven provided with the plugin doesn't work well because it is jitpack and their service is spotty no matter what but I hosted the matrix api myself on my repository and no more issues. The only gripe I have is that you have to manually remove every single kick command from the checks.yml file to handle that yourself in your plugin, it would be nice if you could just globally disable the matrix kick command so you wouldn't have to remove those lines. Lovely, efficient and well supported anti-cheat for the newest Minecraft version.

    All in all it's a really good plugin! I'm very happy with it and it's better than some paid AntiCheat solutions in my opinion. Furthermore this plugin is the only free one I found, that supports Minecraft version 1.15. Keep up the great work!

    Good Anti-Cheat with active developers. I definitely recommend using this one if you're going to go with an AC. I don't know what machine learning is but it sounds epic. To summarize:
