    COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Should Ubisoft Perma-Ban AFK-farmers?

    Okay
    this is a Poll made for the community to cast their votes
    Should Ubisoft be able to permanently ban people who AFK farms?
    or Should Ubisoft be able to ban these people more leniently e.g. 1 month ban Everytime they AFK Farm?

    What do you think?
    are you morally against this? or for this?

    They do that and 1 of 2 things will happen games will end up in used sections or more accounts will be made. The used section MIGHT get more accounts by way of new players by neither get Ubisoft any $$. It just won't happen that's why they are saying it's up to them and you the person that report it never gets to know what happens. The Division has been out how long and they still can't figure out cheating come on..... There should be programs that find cheaters and ways to actively during a match report them not just at the end of a match. How can you not deploy a hot fix for that it shouldn't even need a console approval it's a menu function.

    Ubisoft really brought this on themselves by unrealistically and artificially increasing the required amounts of exp. At best this game could be considered casual to enjoyably competitive.

    To expect players to complete all dailies, every day, which takes a good 2-4 hours depending on how well the connections are going on the day, is unrealistic.

    The reason it was done this way, was to promote sales of Champion status, via Steel, thus microtransactions. ie: They want to make more money.

    AFK farmers are only on Ubisoft's radar because it hurts their bottom line. If it was anything else, they would be ignoring the community's requests as always.

    I have no doubt that they will permanently ban their accounts after a few infractions, but I voted to leave them be. It doesn't bother me, especially when they're sitting against AI, and it's something everyone can do.

    That said, I don't do it myself.

    One warning then a perma-ban seems fair.

    Not really. AFK farmers won't buy steel, they're farming it after all. And they've already bought the game.

    Make a bad system and live with how people circumvent it. Make your game a grind and people will find ways to make it endurable. This is full ob ubisoft.
    just because players found a loopwhole doesnt mean abusing it isnt against the rules though.

    i think a roll-back for the leechers would be appropriate at this point and after that has been done, give a 1-time warning followed by a perma-ban.

    you cant half-*** rule-enforcing... either you do it right, or you dont do it at all.

    Either you make the rules clear from the beginning or you live with what people come up with. If the best course of strategy is to not play.. then there is something seriously flawed in your overall design.

    BTW i am still searching which rules they violate with beeing afk in a full bot match.

    Cheating solo/singleplayer = Okay
    but doing it in Multiplayer... MULTIPLAYER where there are MULTIPLE PLAYERS that are non-AI is the issue which we all have

    This topic is to refer to those who do it in MULTIPLAYER with Other real players
    not AI only.
