The Division Perma-Bans

Recommended Posts

The Division website announces that Ubisoft is adopting one of those trendy (and quite welcome) zero tolerance policy toward those caught cheating in multiplayer games in Tom Clancy's The Division. They say to date they have already taken action against over 30,000 accounts and have issued 3,800 permanent bans. It sounds like that latter number is going to rise, as they say they are now applying perma-bans on a first offense. Here's word:

As a direct result of this improved cheat detection, last month we announced “the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date”. This marked the beginning of an intensive campaign during which actions were taken against a total of over 30,000 accounts, including 3,800 permanent bans. This led to a significantly improved experience, particularly in the Dark Zone.

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. 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.

Took too long for them to do it though, they lost a lot of players already.
