View Full Version : Is intentional lagging against code of conduct?

I have a couple videos of people who seem to lag exceptionally high for their ping rate, especially in fights. For Honor seems to be one of the very few games where it actually helps you if your game takes longer to respond to the server. (They have no problem parrying yet I get a significant cut in the time their animation starts/my UI lighting up and when the attack hits. Shaving off upwards of 100 ms for reactionable defense)
So is it illegal in the game or is it too murky to have action taken against?

Basically yes. It is against the code of conduct to manipulate the game so it gives you an unfair advantage. This is however extremely hard to prove (that the lag is intentional and that it grants an actual advantage to the lagger) so it's really hard to do something about it and I'd believe that Ubisift wants to err on the side of caution in cases like this. You wouldn't want to ban someone because they happen to have a bad connection.
