Less than two weeks ago, we mentioned that Ubisoft planned to take action against online cheaters on their hack-and-slash action title For Honor. Specifically, these were players who were using elastic bands on their controllers to keep their character moving during an online match without having to actually play, a method of farming which unfairly results in players receiving end-game rewards without any participation.
Since their initial announcement of the anti-cheating policy, Ubisoft stated they have already handed out three-day bans to 1,500 players. In addition, another 4,000 players have been detected and will be receiving warnings.
Players who continue to cheat will receive a permanent ban.
On Reddit, Ubisoft reminded players of their community values:
* Honor: Fight, win and lose with Honor. Support your teammates.
* Respect: Respect your opponents and other community members, inside and outside the game.
* Share: Share your experience, share tips and hints, spread the word! Looking forward meeting you all on the battlefields!
