The fraudster has pissed off Splinter Cell: Blacklist players. He even threatened them with a permanent ban.

Although more than 8 years have passed since the premiere of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the game still has a loyal following. Unfortunately, there are issues on the game servers that Ubisoft is still reporting. One scammer decided to publicize this issue by posing as a customer service representative.

All this happened through the production support forum. Recently, there was a pinned thread in which a support employee allegedly warns players reporting Splinter Cell servers.

He announced possible 7-day bans for Ubisoft Connect online services, as well as for the Ubisoft store and other sites. The author also noted that further failure to comply with this requirement could lead to a permanent blockade. Of course, this caused an Internet storm, rendering the French giant in a very unfavorable light.

It was later revealed that the game’s publisher contacted Kotaku to remedy the situation. In the meantime, the forum thread was removed and Ubisoft announced that it was created by a regular user and not by support.

It goes without saying that the cheater was keen to publicize the issue of server issues that often prevent you from playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist in co-op and multiplayer modes. I must admit that he definitely managed to do this, although it is not known whether after this incident the creators of the production, after such a time from its premiere, will decide to put things in order in a multiplayer game.
