Ubisoft cracks down
Ubisoft’s past attempts to get tough on cheaters in The Division have apparently not gone far enough to dissuade cheating. The company is adopting the same policy that Rainbow Six: Siege just enacted: cheaters can now be banned on the first offense.
“Following this campaign of suspensions and bans, it also became clear that while huge progress has been made in terms of cheat detection, our 14 days suspension on first offense policy has not been dissuasive enough,” The Division‘s official blog writes.
“Judging from your feedback, and based on what we witnessed when cheaters came back to the game, we have now decided to push our policy one step further: we will now start applying permanent bans on first offense when players are caught using cheat engines and we will communicate clearly when new ban waves are taking place.”
