For Honor cheaters are facing the wrath of Ubisoft as the company has started banning players. Earlier this month, Ubisoft confirmed that it will be taking action against AFK farmers and it is now time.
According to the stats released by the company, so far 1500 AFK farmers have been banned from the game. Ubisoft warned these players ahead of the ban but those who ignored the warning have now been banned from the game. This should again be a warning to those trying to play smart and cheat their way to the top.
There are still 4000 players who are using this method to farm XP. Ubisoft has sent out a warning which would their last before the band hammer drops.
We communicated earlier this month about how we’re fighting AFK farming and how the For Honor team takes this issue very seriously. A first wave of warnings has been sent earlier last week, and the first wave of banning was performed today. Also, a new wave of warnings has been sent simultaneously.
In today’s wave, around 1 500 players got a 3-Days ban for doing AFK farming.
Around 4 000 new AFK farmers got detected and will receive a warning.
Using a cheat engine to exploit AFK farming is against our Code of Conduct, and these impacted players may get a permaban for cheating.
In all cases, impacted players will receive an official email detailing their sanction and the reason behind it.
Ubisoft’s For Honor is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
