For Honor Cheaters Banned

There seems to be a degree of irony to cheating in a game called For Honor, but UbiBlog has word that some miscreants are indeed bending the rules in their new melee combat game. They say they are cracking down on this situation with their EasyAntiCheat software, which sounds like something you'd buy from an infomercial ("the secret is in the MD5 hashing!"). They say they are taking this seriously enough to hand out bans for first offences. Here's word:

For Honor puts a huge emphasis on skill, so it’s important that it offers a level playing field – and to ensure that nobody has an unfair advantage, the developers have rolled out EasyAntiCheat, a program that detects and flags those who break the rules. Giving the team a way to track cheating, hacking, and offensive communications forbidden by the game’s code of conduct, EasyAntiCheat has already been used to identify and ban fewer than 400 players for cheating and an additional 70 players for offensive conduct.

After being flagged by EasyAntiCheat, suspect accounts are reviewed by the dev team, which then hands out warnings, temporary suspensions, or permanent bans against identified players. These bans are applied on an account level, not at the hardware level. Fairness is hugely important to the game’s creators, so bans are being handed out to first-time offenders. Players who believe they’ve been erroneously penalized can also appeal their bans.

To find out more about For Honor’s code of conduct and the consequences for violating it, visit the official For Honor support page.
