Ubisoft Reinforces Its Anti-Cheat System, Will Ban Accounts Boosted By Cheaters

Cheating has become a huge issue for the multiplayer gaming industry, especially for the FPS genre. Players who are into games such as Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, Rainbow Six Siege and others often run into cheaters who ruin the whole experience of the game.

Recently, Ubisoft has published a detailed report on what they plan to do to combat cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege. According to them, they have reinforced and improved their system in such a way that they could immediately deploy hotfixes for cheats that have been identified, banning users on the spot. Since being boosted by cheaters in a bannable offense in Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft estimates that along with the cheaters, about 600 accounts who benefited by cheaters would also be banned. Since Ubisoft is really keen on enlarging its e-sports scene with Rainbow Six Siege, its likely that these steps would ensure that players who are really working hard would get a chance to improve themselves in a fair manner.

In addition to that, Ubisoft has also announced that they’re next point of interest is to force PC players to enable Two-Factor authentication in order to play in Ranked Matchmaking servers. Players who wish to play with ranked players would have to enable 2FA by logging into their UPlay account and retrieving random codes from the Google Authenticator app on their phone to log in.

Some cheesy notes they also talked about has to be the fact where Ubisoft claims that they would be taking legal actions against these cheaters. Also, if you’ve been losing against cheaters for a while. Once those cheats have been banned, you’ll get a boost in your MMR and see your rank increase, the rank you really deserved. Impressive indeed!

The most worrying change has to be the fact that Ubisoft is now also adding a restriction for the players you play with. They said that players with high ranks wont be able to play with lower rank players. Similar to what Valve does with CS:GO where high ranked players can’t play with lower ranked players. However, Valve does not completely lock down on the fact. In fact, with CSGO, if you ahve a high ranked player in your lobby along with a lower ranked player, you could still play together if you get three more players by filling all of the lobby slots. Since Ubisoft has simply talked about these ideas, its likely that Ubisoft would be aware of making some necessary changes accordingly.

These steps were definitely needed to enhance the gaming experience for both, the players of Rainbow Six Siege and Ubisoft. Afterall, cheaters would force a game to lose a massive portion of its player base.
