Tom Clancy’s The Division has been plagued with bug exploits and cheaters recently. Ubisoft has now given a statement mentioning these things should be fixed in future update patches.
Ubisoft released its statement on the issues a few days ago on the official Tom Clancy’s The Division website. The first issue that they are addressing are the many cheaters that players have seen in The Dark Zone.
They posted: First, we have implemented new cheat detection methods that have allowed us to identify many more players currently using cheat engines in the game. We have already caught more cheaters in the last few days than we had in total during the previous weeks. As a result, we will be handing out the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the course of the next few days.
Second, when cheaters are caught, we will now apply a suspension of 14 days on first offense (instead of the previous 3 day initial suspension). Second offense will always be a permanent ban.
Ubisoft then talked about bug exploits. They admit that finding out bugs in the game are harder to find. They note that players should always give feedback so they know the areas that need to be addressed.
They said: 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.
If you are playing Tom Clancy’s The Division, just make sure to let Ubisoft know the problems you are experiencing. Millions of people own the game so not every problem can be fixed. However, future update patches should make your experience better over time.
