For Honor Bans

A post on reddit by the For Honor team reveals they are banning players for AFK farming in For Honor (thanks VG247). This is not as drastic as it sounds, as they say 1,500 players received three-day bans, while 4,000 more received warnings. Those wrist-slaps aside, they threaten permabans for repeat offenders. Here's word:

We communicated earlier this month about how we’re fighting AFK farming and how the For Honor team takes this issue very seriously. A first wave of warnings has been sent earlier last week, and the first wave of banning was performed today. Also, a new wave of warnings has been sent simultaneously.

In today’s wave, around 1 500 players got a 3-Days ban for doing AFK farming.
Around 4 000 new AFK farmers got detected and will receive a warning.

Using a cheat engine to exploit AFK farming is against our Code of Conduct, and these impacted players may get a permaban for cheating.

In all cases, impacted players will receive an official email detailing their sanction and the reason behind it.

As a reminder, our Code of Conduct can be found here: Code of Conduct

All people who cheat For Honor should actually better play Dishonored. It suits them better.

Ehh, well, in Dishonored, you play an honorable character that was dishonored (hence the title) by people with a criminal agenda... so, how's that work?

Okay, I'll explain. Who cheats in For Honor, is Dishonored. Got it now? Just a wordplay, not dealing with the contents of the games.
 
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!

Only one cheat that matters...

Remember when video games were just a fun past-time?

Okay. I'll bite. What is AFK farming?

Basically they set themselves into a match, hold down the analog stick on their controller by some means, and walk away. They can then come back and collect rewards at the end of the match. Even though they did absolutely nothing from what i hear.I tried this game in beta form and did not care for it.
Away From Keyboard, i get it now.
