The Division Backpack Glitch Locks You Out Of Your Account
Some bugs and glitches are just funny. Others, like this so-called "Loot Cave," can actually benefit the player (even if it still feels like cheating).
But bugs that lock you out of your account are not cool.
Apparently, there's a problem with the recently released Tom Clancy's The Division that involves the crafting of a high-end backpack. Players have reported this backpack disappearing and then not long after, they got locked out of their accounts. There's a video below that explains the situation in detail.
You can see more of the same complaints at the game's subreddit page (via Kotaku) and unfortunately, Ubisoft has been a little slow to respond. The issue has been going on for a week and nobody offered to help until yesterday, when community manager Natchai Stappers took to the Ubisoft forums and asked players to provide some helpful information. Stappers added that resolving the issue is one of the team's top priorities.
The Division recently went offline to receive a bevy of fixes and upgrades via Patch 1.02; let's hope another fix-it patch isn't far behind. The popular game set a new five-day revenue record for Ubisoft and is expected to keep going strong throughout 2016.
