Tom Clancy’s The Division Exploits “Against The Code of Conduct” – Ubisoft

Dev knows it has to "act a lot more strongly towards players who use exploits."

Over the past few days, Tom Clancy’s The Division has been facing a number of glitches regarding its newest update 1.1, which introduced the first Incursion. It’s also been the subject of exploits with players discovering ways to effectively glitch through certain sections and finish the encounter without taking any damage or going through all 15 waves of enemies.

What does Ubisoft plan to do about it? It hasn’t outlined anything yet but community manager Natchai Stappers said on the forums that, “Using exploits is against the code of conduct, so no, it’s not OK. We know that we have to act a lot more strongly towards players who use exploits, and we are working on that.”

Note that Stappers doesn’t explicitly say “ban”. However, that the developer is considering strong action against players for what are essentially problems with the Incursion’s design is worrying. While it has a legal ground to stand on, one has to wonder if it’s a good idea to blame players for its inability to properly play-test (especially when problems like the matchmaking glitch for Falcon Lost still exist).
