Ubisoft will be imposing heavy sanctions to players who are caught cheating in The Division. A cheat detection method is being implemented in the game for the past few days where several “Division” players who were caught cheating or exploiting a game glitch were given a two-week suspension for the first offense and a permanent ban on the account when caught for the second time.
MMORPG.com shared some of the news about the new wave of suspensions. According to Ubisoft, there are players that are using cheat engines to make an unfair advantage at the Dark Zone area. The Ubisoft team are doing their best to catch the cheaters to impose a heavy penalty on them. Now that they have a cheat detection system to identify the cheaters, they managed to catch several of these cheaters.
Due to the sudden rise of cheating in The Division, first offense suspensions were increased to 14 days compared to the previous 3 days, while the penalty for second offense is still a permanent ban.
As for bug issues in the game, Ubisoft has reminded that all known unresolved bugs are posted at the official forum of The Division to give players idea if they encountered a bug and has advised them not to abuse such bugs that would provide unfair advantage in the game. Those who were caught abusing the glitches will either be sanctioned by character rollbacks, account suspensions or permanent bans depending on the gravity of the abused bugs.
Below is Ubisoft’s statement with regard to resolving in-game bugs:
“As mentioned earlier, providing a high-quality experience is our priority. Fixing game bugs is one aspect of it, and we are improving our processes to address that. Dissuading players from impairing others’ gameplay by violating the rules of the game is another aspect. We also want to give you better visibility and transparency. We are fully committed to providing an enjoyable and fair environment for all our players, and will take all steps necessary to achieve this goal.”
The Division is available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
