Ubisoft has previously targeted PC cheaters in For Honor but the publisher is now turning its attention to away from keyboard (AFK) swindlers.
These so-called “farmers” are rubber banding the controller’s sticks to keep their fighter moving without actually contributing to the match, in order to benefit from the end of game rewards and progression.
Ubisoft has published their intentions to counter this issue, starting this week:
1st offense will trigger a warning, then, repeated violations may result in a Ubisoft account suspension applicable on the game (temporary or permanent).
Actual disciplinary action depends on the severity of the behavior and shall be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case by case basis.
Investigations will not be discussed or disclosed at any point of the enquiry, though they stress “that sanctions will only be applied if there is clear evidence.”
Somebody obviously got up on the wrong side of the bed but we don’t like cheaters either.
