The Division Dev to Begin Permanently Banning Cheaters
New banning measures to arrive with update 1.1.
Playing Tom Clancy’s The Division on PC and constantly running into cheaters? Ubisoft Massive tends to deal with the same every now and then but its three day ban was viewed as too lenient.
That’s going to change when update 1.1 arrives. In the State of the Game stream, community developer Yanncik Banchereu told Games Ring that if you’re cheating, other players can report you from within the client. A first offense will grant you a three day ban; cheating again after this will result in a permanent ban.
Banchereau said that there will be a manual review to help distinguish between false and legitimate reports. He also said that while cheating wasn’t an issue on Xbox One and PS4, the PC version suffered a lot of issues. Community reports and automatic flags will be the development team’s go-to process until a better solution is found to combat hackers.
Update 1.1 aka Incursions arrives on April 12th for The Division.
