As someone who has put in many hours into The Division there have been times I wanted to cheat in-game. Yes, it was before all the recent patches an updates, but the drop rate of high-end items as well as phoenix credits had me to that point. Well this will be your one and only warning as of today! The Division will now be permanently banning users from the game, even if it’s their first offense.
As you remember, Ubisoft issued 14-day suspensions to those caught playing around with the game’s systems. Today, Ubisoft has announced on the game’s official website 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.” As you can guess it this means you cheat and they catch you that you’ll be banned for good and I don’t blame them.
If you remember the game Overwatch is doing the same thing for those who cheat in-game. While Overwatch is not a MMO it’s still an online game. Ubisoft has claimed to have already banned more than 3,800 users. On top of this the post calls out players who use “cheat engines.” While I do enjoy a good game such as The Division my advice is to not chance a permanent ban from the game.
