What will happen if you cheat when you play The Division?
Cheating in multiplayer games is a very despicable and frustrating act, and those from Ubisoft will prevent such actions in The Division on long term.
Over the years, online there have appeared multiple tools that can be used by gamers to cheat the system in multiplayer games, especially in the case of some very popular shooter games, such as Counter Strike. It seems that in The Division as well, user who cheat and Ubisoft wants to permanently eliminate those from the list of players - see new update.
Through a new update that has been released for The Division, in addition to fix numerous bugs, it has an integrated laborious system that reports to Ubisoft those who cheat in multiplayer games or use virtual gestures that create problems to other users. The reports will be considered carefully and thos who will be discovered they cheat will be permanently banned. That means they will never be able to enjoy the multiplayer component of The Division.
In the first stage, cheaters will be warned and they will receive a three days suspension. If they don’t learn the lesson and continue to cheat, when they get caught the second time, they will be permanently banned. In this particular case, no one will have the opportunity to fail the third time - get new opportunity.
In theory, cheating in The Division should not be very easy, since there is already an integrated preventive system in the multiplayer servers. But because it is not perfect, Ubisoft has released another system and so, now you are able to write in the console or in the chat window/report follower by the player’s name and press enter to confirm.
In other news, Ubisoft warns players to not abuse the reporting function, because it is possible that some opponents to be better than others.
I totally agree with this Ubisoft method. I played many multiplayer games and now I don’t for the simple reason that I hated to play with cheaters, especially CS cheaters. At some point, online I have saw many communities for CS cheaters that shared their strategies. I guess those people don’t really understand the purpose of gaming, to have fun and to win with your own powers – to challenge yourself.
