Ubisoft Bans Over 1,000 For Honor Players

At least @Grex AFK farms legitimately in BDO.

Ubisoft has issued bans to players using an AFK farming in For Honor.

Via Reddit, Ubisoft says its handed out around 1,500 3-day bans, and around 4,000 warnings to players who’ve been detected using the exploit.

Ubisoft previously stated such action would take place if players continued to violate the Code of Conduct, and further detailed what AFK farming looks like.

“This week we wanted to give your more visibility about our policy against players who are ‘AFK Farming’ the For Honor Battlefields,” said Ubisoft. "For those unfamiliar with the practice, players are able to go AFK (away from keyboard) and keep their in-game character moving throughout a match (ex. tying a rubber band on the control stick), garnering end-game rewards and progression without actually playing. The ‘farming’ aspect comes about when these players use this technique frequently to gain a large amount of these rewards.

Ubisoft also clarified that some players were using cheat engines to AFK Farm, and that anyone caught doing so is likely to receive a permanent ban, rather than a temporary one.
