Following the release of The Division, many players experienced a number of bugs and glitches that certain people have exploited to win matches. In a recent blog post, Ubisoft laid out its plans to address the bugs and glitches in The Division. According to the development team behind The Division, a new method to detect cheaters has been implemented, which resulted in the largest number of bans to date. First time offenders will have their account suspended for 14 days, while second time offenders will be permanently banned.
When it comes to in-game bugs, Ubisoft wants to “adopt a stronger stance” against players who take advantage of the exploits.
“Our first step is to give you clearer and more concrete visibility. Should new bugs be discovered, we will quickly confirm if these are considered exploits. All known exploits will be clearly listed in a public forum thread and across our various communication platforms. We want all players to be informed. This will ensure that those caught after an exploit was confirmed are aware of the consequences and actions that can be taken against them.
“Second, sanctions will be implemented for players who repeatedly abuse exploits and will vary depending on the severity of the abuse, as well as the history of the player. Possible sanctions include character rollbacks, account suspensions and permanent bans. Those who encounter bugs during the normal course of play have absolutely nothing to worry about.” — Ubisoft
