Tom Clancy's The Division Latest News
A few days ago, former Respawn and Sony Programmer, Glenn Fiedler posted up an interesting article on his blog, asking (and pretty much answering) whether The Division hacks can be fixed. He explained how FPS games network models work and how, if The Division is using a trusted client network model, it’s very unlikely that it will ever be entirely secure on PC.
Published on 25th April, Fiedler concluded his blog post with:
Think you hate all the bugs found in The Division? Well, Fox News reporter Andy Levy probably hates them more.
In a recent news broadcast segment detailing skills that every eighteen-year-old should have, Levy included his own skill, “be able to gear up your character in The Division, despite the way Massive nerfed the crafting system that allowed packs of super geared rouges to gank you in the Dark Zone. Thanks a lot, jerks.”
You may have already heard ofand how some of The Division’s players have been able to gain unlimited rewards in the game’s Dark Zone. Apparently, these recent exploits have now been fixed with Ubisoft posting this on their forum yesterday:
Here is the list of changes implemented with the server restart of April 21:
•Fixed a bug where players could revive others twice by holding the Revive key
•Fixed a bug where Talent effects could be stacked by repeatedly switching the equipped weapon.
Massive Entertainment have been dealing with bugs in The Division since it launched, so here’s another exploit to make matters worse.
On Monday, we reported on Ubisoft’s fix to thewhich saw players constantly gain the weekly mission reward despite not actually completing the mission.
A bug was found in The Division last Friday that allowed players to farm the ‘Falcon Lost’ incursion weekly mission reward. As a result of this exploit, Ubisoft applied a hotfix that stopped both legitimate players and players using the exploit from earning the weekly mission reward. A Ubisoft community manager has stated that the developers are looking into punishments for those exploit users.
Natchai_Ubisoft, the community manager on the Ubisoft forum, had this to say:
“We are working on fixing the exploit. Obviously it is against our Code of Conduct and the team is looking into what can be done in terms of punishment for those who have exploited.”
